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!

Not much queue. Everything nice and accessible.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around West Lydford

Spice Gallery

13 Brunel Cl, Somerton TA11 7PY, UK – 01458 274666

Excellent food & friendly service. Would recommend for couples, families & groups. Take away service equal to restaurant & have had both several times over the last 18 mths.

My friend and I had a meal in the restaurant last night, the food was lovely and the staff were very friendly. They provided an excellent service.

The White Hart

Market Pl, Somerton TA11 7LX, UK – 01458 272273

Absolutely gorgeous pub and well worth the detour off the direct route to Cornwall. Charming interior, friendly staff and delicious food made us allround happy. The food is freshly prepared which meant that due to the busy holiday season one or two choices were unfortunately sold out, but that's the peril of coming to properly fresh and local produce. All second choices were just as thoroughly enjoyable. Great drinks selection as well. Definitely recommend going out of your way to check out this lovely place.

Light, airy and spacious inside. The staff are polite and helpful, the customers are friendly too. Good food if a little pricey, which is annoying as I'd like to go there more often but couldn't afford to. I will definitely go back.

Kingsdon Inn

Kingsdon, Somerton TA11 7LG, UK – 01935 840543

My wife and I have used the Kingston Inn on and off for over 40 years and until now the quality has always been good - excellent, however a recent 30% increase in the cost of the Monday Club 3-course came as a bit of a shock today, especially as this is the fist time since we've been using the pub that we had to actually highlight an issue with one of our meals, which seem to have shrunk and dropped in quality. The schnitzel was extremely greasy and the new potatoes overcooked. I did raise the issue but no one other than the excellent waiter seemed concerned. It's never a good sign when the meals are served almost immediately after one course has finished. I sincerely hope that this is a one-off as we'd hate to lose such a wonderful hostelry, I say concentrate on the quality or else you may find more people questioning their loyalty.

Me and my partner eat here every so often, and love it every time. We usually have something different and like that fact that the menu changes often enough. All of the meals come out looking absolutely fantastic and taste just as good. Staff are warm and attentive. Only complaint would be that the brownie isn't always on! Best one I've ever had! Prices are slightly higher than average but so is the quality and presentation. Definitely worth the money. Would definitely recommend.
