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!

Dental Surgeries

Elmsleigh Park Dental Practice

4 Elmsleigh Park, Paignton TQ4 5AT, UK – 01803 559104

Excellent dentist. I had to have a partial denture fitted, something I was not looking forward to. However, Mark the dentist made sure I felt nothing and took my teeth out and put the denture in. Had a panic when I sneezed it fell out and went back to thr dentist, he put some fixodent on it and I was good to go. Very, honest, patient, dentist. However, still being new to dentures and have some worries and questions. Mrs Goatman managed to fit me in and cleared up all my worries and even showed me how to put it in and out and take care of it. Five stars all the way, receptionists are friendly, helpful and kind and both dentist’s( husband & wife), are very good if you are a bit nervous or worried about any dental work. So well-done to you😎😎😎🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼

Smile Dental Care

135 Marldon Rd, Paignton TQ3 3NL, UK – 01803 521177

I had a very positive experience. I am a very nervous patient and was in a lot of pain and needed an extraction. Stan and his team talked me through the whole procedure and was very gentle and reassuring, my tooth was out before I knew it. I can't believe I put up with the pain for so long. Thank You Stan.

One of my best ever dental experiences; as a nervous patient of needles I opted for no pain relief, and I didn't feel a thing during fillings and broke Tooth rebuilding. Very friendly staff and hygenic practice. And the costs were very good too! Will be happy to come here again in the future! Good work Stan and the smile team. 😁

I phoned Bay Skips for some advice on a skip. The staff were polite and gave good advice. I got the skip delivered the following day and the driver was polite and very helpful. The skip was placed were I wanted and when full was collected the after I called to tell it was ready for collection. I would recommend this company as they deliver in every way.

Friendly cheerful helpful staff, willing to accommodate to customers' particular situations, very reasonable charges. Great 'can-do' attitude, great sense of humour!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Torquay

TJ's Restaurant by the Harbour

44 Cliff Rd, Paignton TQ4 6DL, UK – 01803 527389

Had the best meal in such along time for my wife's 40th birthday. Great location and staff were brilliant, nothing was to much trouble. Definitely will be going back to heather (chef) and her team.

We booked because of the fabulous Tapas that they did but on arrival looking at the menu... No Tapas. However the food when it came was amazing. The steak was phenomenal. I've eaten in a lot of 5 star hotel restaurants and this was equal to if not better than that. Service was a little bit slow but nothing to complain about. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Mo's Grill

The Crossways Shopping Centre, Hyde Rd, Paignton TQ4 5BL, UK – 01803 557865

Mom's Grill is situated at the bottom end of Crossways shopping centre. A great eat in or takeaway menu.. Food is top notch. In fact I will only eat here. Excellent service with a smile.. The owner Mo is a great chap.. You can eat indoors or outside with a parasol keeping you in the shade. Or you can takeaway & eat in the park like I do..

Great find. Good food at reasonable prices. Mo is a wonderful host. He knows how to make customers feel very welcome. Such a change from some other places.


59 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 3DT, UK – 01803 527347

Good food, great sharing tapas at reasonable prices. Food is slightly anglicised but means its really tasty and appealing to eat. Service was super. The meaty pizza was just that! Great evening!

Excellent service, good prices, fantastic food. Good atmosphere. What more could you ask for.

Preston Community Pre-School

Preston Baptist Church/Old Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2RB, UK – 01803 520712

Preston Community Preschool has been great for my two children; nurturing, friendly, supportive and encouraging. The setting has a great outdoor space, which the children are encouraged to explore. There are always an array of activities on offer for the children, which are different every day. It’s really helped my children to become independent learners. Although it took a while for my son to settle, his key worker went over and above to help him ease into preschool life. My youngest went in on her first day and didn’t look back...!

Very good school, perfect teachers as they are always to help even if you don't have any problems, member of staff are amazing, fantastic environment. Talking about EF is actually talking about a new family and very good friends that you are going to make throughout the year. Since I came, the members of the staff have been very attentive and the students will not let you alone never at school. There are a range of culture, people from different countries with different perspectives and mindset, it is just a global environment. Strongly recommended.
