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!

Building Societies

Skipton Building Society

1 Cheapside, Taunton TA1 3LG, UK – 01823 322959

Staff in Taunton are very friendly and helpful but beware of going through the main office to make apt’s. Main office doesn’t necessarily know local circumstances. Protocol procedures are length due to data protection but guess that is true everywhere now.

Halifax

64a East St, Taunton TA1 3NH, UK – 01823 300206

The guys here are great... I was running late almost closing time for them here, and the doors were still open. I joked with them and they pleasantly answered my queries. I was able to pay money in over the counter without a huge bullet proof screen too. It's so much nicer to communicate with people face to face.

Very helpful and patient staff......I am elderly and they are more than happy to sort out my computer online banking problems when they arise. Thank you.

Taunton Vale Healthcare

Lisieux Way, Taunton TA1 2LB, UK – 01823 259444

I have recently moved to the Taunton area and it was my second visit to the surgery. The practice nurse Sue, who I had an appointment with, went above and beyond what was expected. She showed nothing but efficiency and kindness. I had a follow up appointment with Dr Horman who was very approachable and reassuring. I have nothing but praise for the service received.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Well the A and E eye lady doctors were fantastic. They removed a splinter of steel from my eye ball. Excellent service and extremely professional. Then the eye clinic doctor was very patient as he cleaned my eye ball. Not an experience I would like to do again but the staff were very helpful. Many thanks.

Staff here are caring and efficient. Have had a very supportive experience, you have the feeling that you are in safe and knowledgeable hands.

Find Recycling Centres

Taunton Recycling Centre

Crown Industrial Estate, Taunton TA2 8QY, UK – 01823 338615

Huge queues and the staff just stand around chatting. They are polite when asked but should be far more proactive. Reuse shop is a great idea but prices are too high for what is being sold. Also no way to get to the shop when very busy as you have to drive past the bins. Not a well thought out site.

Friendly and helpful staff who often help you unload when the place is busy. Long queues can form on weekends, but move fairly quickly. There is a recycle store selling stuff too good to throw away from cycles to books to furniture all at reasonable prices.

Somerset Waste Partnership

Monmouth House, Blackbrook Park Ave, Taunton TA1 2PX, UK – 01823 625700

Website for trailer permits was playing up but Jenny at the office filled in all the info and did it for me - great service

I wouldn't want their job, good luck to them

Somerset Waste

Raglan Mews, Middle St, Taunton TA1 1SH, UK – 01823 247999

We appreciate the fantastic work that the workers at Viridor Wellington Recycling Centre Do and are glad that many items are recycled also through our weekly rubbish collections. It has to be said though that Supermarkets should be made to use 50 percent less plastic food coverings because the burden on landfill must be extortionate! Please can something be done about it and then I will put five stars!!!!

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Taunton

Little Italy Restaurant

Orchard, Taunton TA1 3TP, UK – 01823 336545

We found this lovely little venue quite by accident and I am so glad we did, it has an informal atmosphere, great food and coffees. Whilst I cannot attest to all the food on the menu by the looks and animated chatter from the other patrons I can only assume that they were enjoying theirs as much as we were. Highly recommended.

Good Italian food! Their pasta was delicious and well seasoned. Good choice of Italian beers, good atmosphere and great experience! The cannoli were a bit dry but still delicious. The server was quiet but efficient. The place is quite small though so remember to book a table!

The Willow Tree

3 Tower Ln, Taunton TA1 4AR, UK – 01823 352835

Can't express how grateful I am to the staff of this great restaurant for a nice night. Great place for that special night out as not the cheapest but definitely one of the best. I hope to return next time I am in the area .

A fantastic menu, great setting and perfect service

@Tristans

11 E Reach, Taunton TA1 3EW, UK – 01823 332117

The food and service was excellent. Just what was required for a family birthday treat. Good range of dishes on the menu to satisfy most. This meat eater really enjoyed his veggie meal (what people will do to earn brownie points from their wife). Enjoy

A quant little restaurant off the main high street with fantastic food. The menu is exciting and the choice is varied. The food is well prepared, tasty and worthy of a Michelin star. The portions are quite large. There is a good variety of drinks available, supporting local producers. Be sure to book a table as it does get busy.

Still one of the best private schools in the West Country. Provides a rounded education for a wide variety of needs. Also a great wedding venue!

I was in Weirfield School in the 1960s. Very good school. Wonderful people - schoolmates & staff. The school produced a lot of successful women who are in many countries. Not sure I like the merger with Taunton school though.
