You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Banks

Lloyds Bank

5 Market Square, Stafford ST16 2JL, UK – 0345 300 0000

Excellent service provided by Lloyds after the passing of my father, thank you for making the process painless.

A nice bank with friendly staff, however the queue can get really long and they keep changing there opening times on a Saturday - I personally preferred the extended hours but they are no longer available.

Bank House Financial Services Ltd

1 Water St, Stafford ST16 2AG, UK – 01785 214972

Excellent help in planning my retirement income and investing for the future,would highly recommend using Bank House Financial Services Ltd, thank you Andrew for all your advice and help.

Barclays Bank

15 Market Square, Stafford ST16 2BE, UK – 0345 734 5345

Dated inside, but I believe the external ATM is now one of the first to offer NFC based withdrawals without the use of your PIN code now.

Building Societies

Stafford Railway Building Society

4 Market Square, Stafford ST16 2JH, UK – 01785 223212

Great Building Society

Local Chambers of Commerce for ST18 0FZ. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Stafford Borough Council

Civic Centre, Riverside, Stafford ST16 3AQ, UK – 01785 619000

New Waterfront Car park in Stafford. This has replaced the old TESCO multi-storey car park, and is light, spacious and well designed, with wide access ramps. Payment is at the end of the stay, so no need to worry about returning too late for a pre-paid ticket. However, it closes at 2330hrs, so not suitable for revellers at the town's nightspots who return to their cars in the early hours.

Community Council Of Staffordshire

Suite 1A - 1B, The Whitehouse, 3A Chapel St, Stafford ST16 2BX, UK – 01785 242525

Ever wondered which organisation provides support and advice to village halls? Ever asked yourself who coordinates the Best Kept Village competition? Ever thought it would be great to join a discounted oil purchasing group to keep your rural home's boiler filled up at the best possible price? All this and much more, the Community Council of Staffordshire. Independent, always over achieving and, in this day and age, sadly and regrettably underfunded - the unsung heroes of support for rural communities!

Dental Surgeries

Stafford Dental Centre

24 Eastgate St, Stafford ST16 2LZ, UK – 01785 229591

Fantastic with my blind , disabled relative .Attentive and patient, Jack is an attentive and skilled practitioner.

Quick and friendly service. Didn't offer anything I didn't need and was very efficient. Most pleasant dental check up and scale I've ever had. I have a fear of the dentist, mainly as a result of invasive and painful experiences, this has cured my fears.

Church Lane Dental Practice

9 Church Lane, Stafford ST16 2AW, UK – 01785 252514

My wife had to pay a visit to the dentist and this is what she said "Having suffered with a phobia of dentists from childhood it was such a painless experience on Friday. Raj made me feel at ease because he was so attentive and understanding. One of the best dentists I have ever had."

A former resident but I was visiting Stafford from the States for a week and wanted to have fillings and a good check up/clean. Church Lane Dental fitted me in on the same day and I was so happy with the service, friendliness, efficiency and everything about the Practice that I went 3 times in one day to have all the work I needed done! Dr. Koner was excellent, and the entire staff very accommodating at such short notice. I'll look forward to going back some time in the future. Highly recommended.

County Hospital

Weston Rd, Stafford ST16 3SA, UK – 01785 257731

I was admitted by ambulance 29/09/2017 to the A/E dept and as I live in Telford have never entered this hospital before. I received the best care possible. Patricia on reception was excellent in showing my relatives where I was on their arrival.The A/E staff are amazing, treatment was the best from doctor to staff, monitoring was constant, cleanliness excellent, understanding superb. A very caring professional department, I was transferred to MAU dept. again staff were all of the above. Thank you very much all of you and for looking after my wife . NIGEL MINTON

From the moment we presented ourselves at Accident & Emergency my wife and I were treated with respect and were triaged within 20 minutes. Subsequent admission was speedy and efficient and within minutes treatment commenced. Well done to all the staff concerned and "Thank you"

Saint Georges Hospital

Corporation Street, Stafford ST16 3SR, UK – 0300 790 7000

I was taken to the 136 suite a month ago, staff were lovely, very understanding. I have been on Chebsey several times over the years, staff have always been supportive, caring and understanding x

Some staff on Chebsey ward are rude and honestly completely oblivious to patients needs but there is some decent staff there my experience was appalling. But I could praise the number of staff that were willing to listen and talk to me despite my struggles. The staff in 136 suite are excellent and I can see they do genuinely care. I do think some staff have a lack of understanding with certain patients which puts us in a tricky situation with trying to trust the staff. All in all the hospital it's self is daunting but patients are there to get help not a luxury holiday

Rowley Hall Hospital

Rowley Ave, Staffordshire, Stafford ST17 9AQ, UK – 01785 223203

I've just had a total hip replacement done at Rowley Hall Hospital and cannot praise the hospital and staff enough. I was kept informed of each procedure and given information on the medication I was taking. Exceptionally clean, very well organised, extremely pleasant nursing staff/doctors. I felt like I received 5* treatment. A huge thank you to everyone for the excellent treatment I received. Well done.

After an initial disappointment through a postponed operation I had my surgery on 30th Dec 2016. From the moment I arrived for my surgery I was treated so kindly, everyone I was in contact with was friendly and caring. Both the anaesthetist and the Surgeon came for a chat prior to the operation, this really put me at ease. I found the standards throughout the hospital are very high. My stay was made as comfortable as possible, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Rowley Hall Hospital is indeed an incredible hospital, one that I would fully recommend.

Back 2 Bikes

Greyfriars Business Park, Greyfriars Way, Grey Friars Way, Stafford ST16 2RF, UK – 01785 257483

A great second hand bikes and parts shop. Veritable Aladdin's cave of bike bits and very good prices. Also do bike servicing and repairs.

Fantastic second hand bike shop. Bikes are well-maintained, value for money and most importantly miles better than those cheap nasty bikes from supermarkets. They repair and upgrade bikes too and I never seem to visit without buying something. Excellent for parts, light conversation on the topic of the weight of alloy stems and general bike-geekyness.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Very nice place to visit. The food there is very good.

Nishads

30 Mill Bank, Stafford ST16 2QT, UK – 01785 252529

I have eaten at Nishads multiple times and I have yet to find a curry house in Stafford better. The dishes and delicious and they have a great menu. The staff also go the extra mile and have great knowladge of different dishes and can really customise your dish to make you your ideal curry. Does not serve alcohol however if you bring your own they will keep it cool for you and provide you with glasses.

Food was a bit goopy, my dish and my friends dish looked and tasted the same even though they where different on the menu. Staff where very friendly and the food came out promptly and tasted fine.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Sir Graham Balfour School

North Ave, Stafford ST16 1NR, UK – 01785 223490

It's a good school, with some fun lessons. However, some teachers treat students really disrespectfully and disciplining them for doing minor things, when, across the room, another student is doing the exact same thing.

Worst Food ever. I was expecting a lot more from this Restaurant but all of us who ate there said it was Terrible. I had the famous Balfour Burrito and it was not very good at all!! They are not very good at matching Flavors they puts together things that do not go together at all. Here's a little hint balfour stick to the basics and the Good Ol fashioned food don't try to make things that are too fancy and you think you're coming up with these bright ideas like putting things together that don't go together you would do better if you just took your time and be a good cook like you're supposed to be but I know you're not the one cooking in these place you hire these $10 an hour Cooks probably ? They do not perform like you may have if you ran your own business and got your head out of the Sir Graham Balfour Multi-Academy Trust.
