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!

Barclays Bank

14 King St, Truro TR1 2RB, UK – 0345 734 5345

Banked here for years... Got fed up with queuing, now i bank elsewhere. Access for buggies is annoying. Even worse if u r disabled. Better banks are available. Not very competitive rates, for anything. No criticism of the staff.

Google street shows it as Britannia, but it is The Co-Operative Bank now, and it's blue!! Recently opened an account here, and very impressed with the service and quiet peaceful interior. The young manager is very helpful and personable...a pleasure to do business with.

Dental Surgeries

Lander Dentistry

3 Upper Lemon Villas, Lemon Street, Truro TR1 2PD, UK – 01872 272777

I was 59 years of age before I plucked up the courage to do something about my teeth. They weren't too bad, but a long way from perfect, my bottom set were very crossed and uneven, and getting worse. I used my hand a lot when I smiled! I saw 4 dentists for advice before I settled on Mark Pimble. It's a big step and expensive so you want the best. He advised me to have braces top and bottom. I hated the thought, but he said I'd get a better result than Invisalign and all the other options. He was honest and straightforward about what to expect and very encouraging along the way. It took just six months to straighten them. I then had some veneers at the front, what a transformation! I have no doubt at all that I made the right choice in Mark, his skills are exceptional, his manner calm and reassuring. He's also a bit of a perfectionist too, so expect top notch results. I've seen some peoples teeth after treatment and you can tell they've had them done they look so false! With Mark you are assured of a natural beautiful smile. He really is the best. Oh by the way, I've stopped using my hand now when I smile!

New to Truro, Mark helped me at short notice in an emergency when other practices couldn't. He proposed a strategic treatment plan to improve my well worn and crooked dentition. I am so glad that I decided to go ahead with it - my smile has never looked better, yet still natural. Mark and his team are both competent and reassuring and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Lander Medical Practice

Truro Health Park, Infirmary Hill, Truro TR1 2JA, UK – 01872 243700

We are really happy with our doctor at Lander. We always seem to get appointments relatively quickly. Having a pharmacy on site is pretty great too. I guess if I had to complain about anything it would be that the car park is a bit too small. So you want to get there early to ensure you get a space.

The most helpful staff and brilliant doctors and nurses.

Brilliant private hospital with helpful staff

Royal Cornwall Hospital

Treliske, Truro TR1 3LQ, UK – 01872 250000

I have been in and out of the St Mawes Lounge and Ward for the last couple of days. The lounge is super conformable and relaxing with a great fish tank and TV to watch. I have spent the last 7 hours testing the big blue chairs and they still haven't sent my bum to sleep. Top notch! The team looking after me yesterday Jonathan, Laura and Rosie amoungst others were extremely kind and helpful and provided some light hearted humour which is always most welcome when you're not feeling well. Overall apart from the long waiting time to see various professionals the service was excellent and made me feel very safe and comfortable. I would therefore like to thank all the team from the bottom of my heart!

This Hospital saved my life twice! All I can say is they are all a truly wonderful, dedicated staff, Doctors, everyone. After two comas one lasting 3 1/2 months!!!! How can I possibly say they are not. I heard people complaining and moaning about trivial things in my eyes, who just refused to acknowledge the complexities of all the patients illnesses. I told them bluntly thank your lucky stars you don't live abroad especially America! I had to stay in High Wycombe General once ..... it was sheer hell.....fortunately it's closed now. The difficulties lie in the top management, as with most organisations,,,, by no means the Hospital itself. Thank God they were there when i needed them.....And Thank You The Royal Cornwall Hospital.....for being there for everyone.....only the bad stories are told never the really amazing ones you do every single day...... My praise is not enough to convey my gratitude.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Truro

Mandarin Garden Chinese Restaurant

114 Kenwyn St, Truro TR1 3DJ, UK – 01872 272374

I and my wife have been to the Manderin Garden for lunch on many occasions. It is family run and very welcoming but certainly not fussy if you want privacy. The food is very tasty and always hot; it is a most pleasant experience and, the lunch time prices are cheap. It is not normally necessary to book for lunch but they do get quite full at times. I have not visited in the evening but intend to when circumstances allow.

We were in Truro to see Level 42 on Saturday 23rd October and went to the lunchtime performance so we're at a loose end in the evening and hadn't booked anywhere to eat. We came here and were found a table immediately (there were 4 of us). The service and food were faultless. Very tasty and piping hot. Best Chinese meal I have had in a long time. Will eat there again. Highly recommend.

Manning's Restaurant Bar & Hotel

Mannings Hotel, 80 Lemon St, Truro TR1 2QB, UK – 01872 247900

Nice food and great service. Friendly and helpful without being snotty. Steak burger was a bit overdone, but salad was really good. Good coffee too. No problem tweaking the menu to suit either. Reasonable prices. Food took ages though.

Friendly atmosphere, fabulous menus and decent wine! Our favourite restaurant in Truro, never fails to impress, even after many years. Gets better and better.

Hooked! Restaurant & Bar

Tabernacle St, Truro TR1 2EJ, UK – 01872 274700
