Banks

The Co-operative Bank

242 High St, Exeter EX4 3QB, UK – 01392 499697

Nice staff. You can actually talk to human beings...

Very friendly and helpful staff. All willing to do everything they can to help, above and beyond the standard.

Barclays Bank

Alphin Brook Rd, Exeter EX2 8RG, UK – 0345 734 5345

I had to pay a cheque into German Shepherd Rescue Elite (we obviously rescue German Shepherd dogs that have fallen on bad times though no fault of their own). I was going to pay it in to the Exeter city branch, which is a bit of a hassle having to go into town, but a quick check on the internet showed there was a branch in Marsh Barton. I found that I can park right outside a couple of steps and I'm in the bank, but even better, I didn't have to mess around with one of those self service machines, I could give the lovely cashier the cheque and the paying in details, job done. Thank you :)

HSBC Bank plc

250-251 High St, Exeter EX4 3PZ, UK – 0845 740 4404

Only bank I know with a pay in change machine, great for emptying the piggy bank. Have closed a lot of local branches though

Extremely helpful

Building Societies

Yorkshire Building Society

187-189 High St, Exeter EX4 3DU, UK – 01392 330796

With little difference between products in this highly regulated financial sector - service is everything!

Nationwide

2 Bedford Street, Exeter EX1 1LT, UK – 0800 554 0428

Transferred in 2016 after 40-plus years with the spivs at Barclays and have no regrets except that I stayed with Barclays for so long. This branch of Nationwide is excellent, the staff are courteous and knowledgeable, and the bank seems to be efficient, honest and well-run.

Welcoming and helpful staff.

Skipton

Local Chambers of Commerce for EX1. 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!
Exeter City Council

Civic Centre, Paris St, Exeter EX1 1JJ, UK – 01392 277888

Never had an issue personally, and have always been treated well whenever i have visited. offices appear clean and inviting and well staffed. I do have a few comments, 1) i agree with another poster on the comment made about the students - there is not enough social housing and too much is being given to students instead so the balance is not quite right in my opinion - especially when historic Exeter buildings are being pulled down to develop new buildings - i am all for growth but the residents of Exeter deserve a slice of the cake 2) i am not a fan of the automated phone service as sometimes you can end up anywhere and 3) the disabled parking is lacking - there is space for two cars but any spare space available is marked off in white lines with just the one space in the middle which seems silly. Considering what ECC have to work with i feel that they overall do a good job, and i enjoy living in Exeter.

Need to sort out their local housing priorities and stop building student accommodation everywhere in the centre. Apart from that, good

ECC Recycling Centre

Oakwood House, Exton Rd, Exeter EX2 8NR, UK – 01392 277888

Health and safety awareness , polite and knowledgeable, helpfull and more than capable to keep up with demands in industry

Certainly better now than ten years ago, staff are more helpful yet under more pressure in this PC and H&S society, the arrangement of waste types is good, sometimes have to ask where to put something and once I wasn't able to drop my waste (domestic) when the bin men missed my house one week. [ had to find alternative method]

Dental Surgeries

St Thomas Dental Centre

48 Cowick St, Exeter EX4 1AP, UK – 01392 210850

Firstly, these guys saved my bacon today THANK YOU, without their speed and great customer care my new year would have been miserable. I called for an emergency appt and I would like to thank the receptionist for her understanding - I had been working abroad for 4.5 years so lost my NHS registration with the practise - she fixed that for me, called me back within an hour - thank you to the Practise Manager for allowing me to re-register after considerable time out, and Thank you to Aga the delightful dentist and her lovely dental nurse who were very kind and understanding of my dental phobia and treated me with up-most courtesy and gentleness. I cannot rate this dental practise high enough for all their help and care. Anyone who is nervous and needs to be put at ease register with these guys, trust me I had to go through most departments today and ALL were FIRST CLASS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

wonderful memories of childhood trips to the sea

The Exeter Dental Centre

17 Castle St, Exeter EX4 3PT, UK – 01392 272350

Definitely recommend! If you hate the dentists then give this place a go. Painless, professional and actually quite a pleasant experience. From the moment of entering you are welcomed and treated very respectfully. The staff are all delightful and incredibly professional. The centre is clean and really nicely designed. I travel all the way to Exeter from London for appointments as they really are the best dentists I have encountered.

I had my first visit to the Exeter Dental Centre today. From the moment I stepped in the welcome was lovely. My appointment was to see Lucy the hygienist. Both Lucy and the nurse put me at ease immediately, the treatment was explained at every stage, Lucy showed me the correct way to maintain my oral health in till my next visit. My mouth felt so amazing i resisted the fabulous cakes in reception in aid of McMillan charity! (took a couple of slices home instead)!!

Barnfield Dental Studio

10A Barnfield Hill, Exeter EX1 1SR, UK – 01392 423668

Friendly and helpful receptionists, and dental staff. Really positive experience at recent appointment with Jonathan (Hygienist?) and dental nurse Jodie (?) - both were so lovely, friendly, and made the whole visit (and my teeth) feel lovely! Thanks so much!

We were seen on Saturday morning, which is a very convenient time for us. All the staff were excellent, laying out very clearly the costs and benefits of different packages, and the dentist was excellent in her care. Really impressed.

The South Lawn Medical Practice

Heavitree Heath Centre, South Lawn Terrace, Exeter EX1 2RX, UK – 01392 281101

Southlawn Medical Practice has provided a professional, confidential, efficient service for me since 2005, with genuine sensative and kind GP's. I am pleased to say that it is the best Medical Practice that I have ever been registered with, and as a 'healthcarer' myself I can TRUST my GP's implicatly with my 'health' needs, and my secure: personal and private information. I am infact planning to move house in the near future and will endeavour to move within the 'Practice' catchment area, as I sincerely beleive that to change now: would jeopardize my health and sanity.

St Leonards Medical Practice

Athelstan Rd, St Leonards, Exeter EX1 1SB, UK – 01392 201790

Best surgery in Exeter. Positive and helpful doctors and nurses. Nothing is too much trouble. Even got seen quite quickly when registering our new born. Very impressed

I have been with the practice since birth, my Dr is really thorough he Truely is one of the best I have been very fortunate to have Dr Evans as my G.P.. I only have praise for the practice nothing negative at all. The reception staff are wonderful too. Thank you to all of you for your hard work and dedication .

Ruby Modern Diner

74 Queen St, Exeter EX4 3RX, UK – 01392 436168

Ruby diner is a nice place to eat but when my family and I went on a Thursday it was quite busy and we waited a long time before our food came, also upon ordering our burgers the waiter said "we serve our burgers medium, is that alright?" We all said yes as we didn't want to make a fuss but food hygiene regulations state that because burgers are made of mince there is more chance of contamination as the meat has more surface area for bacteria to have accessed. When the burgers came they where still a little pink on the inside but cooked just enough to be acceptable, the sauce and the cheese and the rest of the burger was very tasty. Chips where average and the salad looked a bit wilted. Overall there was good points and bad points, I hope when I next return they will have stopped asking how burgers should be cooked and told the kitchen to speed it up a bit.

Let us film in there once. I liked the bloke. Good guy. Nice burgers.

The best school ever! I am so glad i found this school for both my children - small and friendly - exceptional teaching staff - children's well being always put first. Simply superb.

My 3 children attend St Wilfrid's School in Exeter and they love it. The school is small, and friendly and has a family-run feel to it. The small class sizes are fantastic as it means that my children get individual attention from their teachers and they are able to develop at their own rate. All the pupils know one another and the teachers are friendly and approachable. I could not recommend this school highly enough.
