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!

54 Anstey Rd, Alton GU34 2RE, UK – 01420 83589

Excellent dentist, really friendly and helpful. Great with kids, accommodating to their needs. Great with adults too, I’ve been coming here for years and still have all my teeth.

I've been visiting Alton dental for the last 9 years...I've seen many changes and over the years it's improved immensely. Without this practice I wouldn't be able to smile with confidence like I do now. Dr safri,Jo and the team make going to the dentist a great experience. Would highly recommend.

Watercress House Dental

1 The Windmills, St Mary's Close, Alton GU34 1EF, UK – 01420 544408

I am writing this review on behalf of my Mum as she isn't techno minded, but wanted to review this marvellous dentist. In her own words:- "Having an emergency of a front tooth falling out, just before Easter when I planned to visit family, rushing straight to my dentist I was very lucky to find him in the reception. Unbeknown to me it was his lunch break. However, without any hesitation he immediately agreed to undertake the repair and do it straight away, forgoing his lunch. He is a superb dentist and the kindness and care shown was second to none. I must say he is always so kind and did a wonderful repair on my tooth. His name is Dr Marcello Tulone. The practice as a whole is a wonderful place". By Mrs Elizabeth Manley.

I recently had a brace fitted with Watercress Dental. It's now been removed and I'm delighted with the result. My teeth have always been extremely misaligned and now they're perfectly straight. The care I've received has been excellent.

St. Lawrence Church

Church St, Alton GU34 2BU, UK – 01420 83234

Beautiful old building. Plenty of interesting historic features. Bullet holes in the door from the English Civil War, 15th century paintings on a pillar, carved Norman capitals.

Needs a good clean and quite bare inside thanks to Puritan whitewashing but the fine location and civil war history are notable. Norman core inside, not really detectable but very old.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Alton

Pizza Express

5 Market Street, Alton, Hampshire GU34 1HD, UK – 01420 89839

Reasonably priced, decent food. Nice atmosphere, and quite busy considering it was a mid-week evening. Service was a little slow, but to be expected considering how busy it was. Food is, as always, very well cooked and presented, the menu choices are good also. With student discount or a taste card, it makes it a very cheap meal!

Food and staff great. I seriously worry about the cleanliness of the toiletable. Especially as it is a restaurant and I presume the staff also use these facilities. The public toilets across the car park are cleaner. I do not blame the staff. They were busy. I also do not want the staff that clean and serve my food cleaning the toilets.

River Kwai

3A Cross and Pillory Ln, Alton GU34 1HL, UK – 01420 87796

Excellent Thai Restaurant, caters for all types of preference from hot and spicy to the opposite. Inexpensive. Gets very busy, booking recommended.

Tasty. I grabbed a take away from here on a Saturday night. Called around 7pm, food was ready to pick up within 15 minutes. That's a good turnaround for a pay day weekend! When I went to collect the food the rest was packed, a good sign of things to come. The staff were attentive and served me quickly. The order was brought out straight away and everything was as ordered. Usually when we order take aways there are leftovers for the next day. We finished everything, it was all great. Fresh ingredients, freshly prepared with an excellent infusion of flavours. There was even a bit of heat in the curry, but not too much. We ordered 5 dishes in total, all for under £25. Great value, we will be coming back here again no doubt!

Frango Grill

1 Cross and Pillory Ln, Alton GU34 1HL, UK – 01420 768100

The staff at the Alton Branch were very polite and friendly, and the food was just as great! They can cater for everyone’s needs, gluten free, halal, vegan and vegetarian. It’s a great place to go out with friends and family. I would 100% recommend it to anyone who wants to go out for a meal.

Won't lie I bloody love it . Sometimes can take longer then expected. But over all lovely food fair price great staff

Nursery and Preschools

Mayfield House Nursery

103 Anstey Mill Ln, Alton GU34 2RN, UK – 01420 87031

Excellent care, fantastic staff and caring owners! The setting is a bit dated, but the new owners have already started to spend money on resources and redecoration. My little one loves and recommend that all prospective parents have a viewing and a meeting with the owners themselves - they are experienced operators who are looking to make the nursery the best one in the area - this can only be a good thing for our kids.

Best school ever

Eggar's School

London Rd, Holybourne, Alton GU34 4EQ, UK – 01420 541194

Joined in 2011 the school was good and learnt a lot. After about 2 years with a new Headteacher the school took a turn for the worst and has continued to fail students including me and my brother. It's a pot luck draw on which teachers you get, get a good one and you will exceed expectations but get a bad one and expect to fail. Their continued employment of bad teachers will ultimately be the downfall of this school. However longer standing teachers continue to help the students exceed. Finally the label may say a science school but this department is appalling and needs a serious revamp both department and teachers. The school however exceeds in other areas such as Further Maths courses (the experienced team of mathematicians), English and ICT.

Best school ever. When there was an issue they let me know immediately when it happened they didn't just leave it to the end of the day.

Amery Hill School
