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

Bupa Dental Care Penarth

25 Hickman Rd, Penarth CF64 2AJ, UK – 029 2070 8317

I used to be terrified of the dentist, but I have to say since I started coming to Bupa Dental Care Penarth, it is no longer something I'm afraid of. The staff are all friendly and kind, and I was put at ease by the dentists that I saw. Lawrence and Jason have been amazing, everything was carefully explained to me, no pressure, no stress. I used to get myself worked up weeks in advance of going for a dental appointment, but since I started coming here that just isn't the case anymore. The service is very professional from everyone that works there. I'm always greeted by welcoming staff at reception, I cannot fault it. Highly recommended.

Excellent service. Very friendly staff and nice to see the manager helping out when it was busy. Dentist was lovely and explained the options thoroughly to me. Also interested in their hair removal treatments and great that as I am now a dental patient I get 20% discount! It’s a win win situation since joining for me. And great it’s Bupa and affordable!

Greenfield Dental Care

60 Greenfield Ave, Dinas Powys CF64 4BX, UK – 029 2051 5151

If you're looking for a dentist, you do not need to look any further. Greenfield Dental Surgery lives up to all the below reviews. The staff could not be any more friendly, they remember who you are and take time to get to know a bit about you and what you need/want from your appointments with them. You get a quality, friendly, reassuring service for a very reasonable price. When I moved, I was worried that I wouldn't find a better dentist than the one I went to at home, I didn't expect to find an even better one!!

After suffering for most of my life with a phobia and fear of the dentist, earlier this year I was recommended to Greenfield Dental Care in Dinas Powys. I needed a considerable amount of work on my teeth and found my dentist, Victoria, most efficient and helpful. When I first attended the practice I could hardly sit still because I was terrified. Victoria explained everything to me throughout each of my appointments, telling me what she was doing and why she was doing it, putting me at ease. I still have 2 appointments left to finish my crowns and dentures and then I will have that "Hollywood Smile" I would thoroughly recommend Greenfield Dental Care to anyone.

Penarth Dental Healthcare

5 Andrews Buildings, Stanwell Rd, Penarth CF64 2AA, UK – 029 2030 0202

Fantastic care received. Very Quick diagnostic MRI. All the staff absolutely wonderful. Under the care of Mr Mohanty. He was very caring.. professional and answered any questions. Hospital immaculate .. tea and coffee facilities appreciated. Wouldn't hesitate to use Nuffield again ( although I hope I won't to )

My appointment was for a 360+ health check. A first class service with great customer care and attention. Nothing was too much for both my Doctor and Physiologist. I would recommend this hospital and service to anyone who actually cares about their health. You guys are a credit to the medical profession.

Pedal Power

Cardiff Bay Barage, Cardiff CF10 4PA, UK – 029 2039 0713

They have all kinds of cycles - we hired a quadri-cycle which was fun to ride on. It was little costly though! If you get the normal bikes, you can go the entire cycle route around the bay. The guide you with the route to take.

We booked two bikes for a day with Pedal Power. We met Graham at the bike shed in Cardiff Bay, he was absolutely lovely, being biking novices he helped us with our bikes and kitted us up and even suggested biking trails for us to try. We chose the Taff trail and had a wonderful time biking up to Castle Coch and back. We got to try out the Tandem bike when we returned our bikes the next day. Pedal power is a registered charity, so while you are doing something that is good for you, you are doing something that is good for someone else who needs it too.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Lavernock

La Marina Restaurant

PENARTH MARINA, Penarth, VALE OF GLAMORGAN CF64 ITT, UK – 029 2070 5544

Definitely a place to go for a special occasion. Food was Georgous,Cocktails were fantastic - a thoroughly enjoyable evening had.

Lovely food and service. Went there for a birthday celebration. Large party of 20 but everyone got their food at the same time.

Restaurant James Sommerin

The Esplanade, Penarth CF64 3AS, UK – 029 2070 6559

As a Michelin star restaurant was expecting a fabulous meal having visited a few similar restaurants previously. The plates had chips in the edges which was very surprising and the food was very underwhelming. Having booked the taster menu was expecting some showcase dishes but all were very average. The views from the restaurant were lovely despite the weather. Have eaten in much better will not be visiting again.

All I can say is wow! We had the six course taster menu and everything tasted amazing. I called it magic in my mouth ! The skill in the combination of flavours. The presentation was a work of art. The service was excellent and very relaxed and friendly . We are already planning our return. Definitely recommend for a fantastic culinary experience.

Pier 64 Penarth

Penarth CF64 1TT, UK – 029 2000 0064

We booked this lovely venue for a family birthday lunch ahead of a party later in the day. Since it's right on the Penarth Marina it can be simply gorgeous when the weather is sunny and we were lucky the weather cooperated. We sat in a lovely booth overlooking the water and two of the us order from the special lunch menu. Two courses for £14.95, three for £17.95. And I must say the food was outstanding and generous - many times with a lunch menu the plates can be smaller and basic. Not here. The offerings we good sized plates and really well prepared (see photos). The service was excellent too. The only thing I could suggest to offer validated parking in the pay and display opposite (only because the machine accepts coins), since the parking for the restaurant is small and always full. But 5* nonetheless. Well done Pier 64!

Had a voucher from Travel Zoo to visit. Deal was on to get more custom. Can honestly say was treated very well from the moment we walked in. Food was excellent. Enjoyed every course. Highly recommended. X

Stanwell School

1 Archer Rd, Penarth CF64 2XL, UK – 029 2070 7633

Previous pupil & current parent. Stanwell was an excellent school when I attended and has only improved since. The facilities are superb and very well maintained. Teaching is to a very high standard and rules well enforced (without being overly draconian). I've found the current management team to be effective and to show a good understanding of matters affecting the school and pupils. There has been no shortage of support and my child feels it's a productive learning environment. The school is very accessible and easy to contact and deal with regarding daily matters. All in all, very satisfied.

i go to this school and i think it is good for education purposes and it lets you go free and chose what you want to be but some of the teachers are striked but in a good way that is good
