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!

1 Saddler St, Durham DH1 3NR, UK – 0345 740 4404

The bank is larger than the one in Windsor, Surrey. And they have a Premier section, which Windsor does not. So their customer service was shockingly sub par. I was really surprised that the Premier officer on the day did not want to help me even though I am a premier client. I tried to approach their premier guy, but he was on a mission to avoid contact. This is very annoying as HSBC tries very hard to sell its premium brand?! I was really confused. The reason I gave it a 3 star was because the young woman at the counter was the best part of the experience. She deserved a 5 star rating while her premier colleague and the older and less than helpful gentleman at the counter, who was dismissive and not very customer orientated, deserved s zero!. Ms. Kahlbom, brava. And thank you.

I've never had any issues with them, and I've banked there for over three years now. Unsure why everyone else is giving them low scores.

Always great service when we go here.. pizza is fresh and tasty. Fill up on salad from the salad bar, then take the pizza home in a box for next days breakfast... Loads of different kinds of pop on unlimited refills. Play with ice cream factory and give yourself brain freeze. Mmm pizza..

We called in for a lunchtime buffet. It was a "Pizza and Pasta Buffet"? the pizza was beautiful. The refillable drinks were great but I was very disappointed that the pasta was dry and the tubs containing the pasta sauce remained empty throughout our full visit.. despite letting staff know! So it sort if spoiled our visit! X

Farewell Hall, South Rd, Durham DH1 3TB, UK – 0191 384 3226

My daughter has attended this school for 5 years and I have been very impressed by the level of care shown to all girls in the school. The staff will go over and above the average to help girls in need either with school work or over personal issues. There is a warmth and security in the school environment in which girls thrive and can develop their own personalities without fear of ridicule. Many opportunities are open to the girls including foreign trips, Duke of Edinburgh, Charitable work, sport, cooking, debating etc. There exists a range of bursaries so girls from all different economic backgrounds can attend. I rate this school very highly.
