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!

I was petrified of dentists, but these guys are great and extremely reassuring. They care about what they do. Staff are friendly and itsi always nice and clean.

Friendly and helpful team

ADP Dental Care

Hookstone Park, Harrogate HG2 7DB, UK – 01423 884503

When I read negative reviews it always makes me wonder if the moaners would have been happier if they were just turned away when they have toothache? That aside, I have spent over 30 years as a Private Dental patient in Harrogate. The first dentist was struck off and the second found something wrong with my teeth every 6 months! I have been with MyDentist 3 years and I find them very well qualified, professional and caring. I cannot fault them other than to say they are too popular and need more first class Dentists. Thank you

Castle Dental Practice

19 Cheapside, Knaresborough HG5 8AX, UK – 01423 865149

Absolutely amazing service from all the team at castle dental practice. Couldn’t have managed the last few days without them after my daughter had a severe dental accident . Can’t thank Alan fields and his dental nurse Jody enough . Went above and beyond and my daughter and I are beyond grateful . Can’t recommend them enough

Incredibly professional and compassionate practice. I've been going there for a couple of years now and the service they've provided has been absolutely faultless. I had a couple of nightmare dentists as a child and the team here are the very antithesis of those.

Very good

Stockwell Road Surgery

21 Stockwell Rd, Knaresborough HG5 0JY, UK – 01423 867433

Another doctors that's been hit by population explosion. Used to get in within 1 or 2 days Now it's a week to be seen unless you ask to go to the Harrogate surgery. Car park is far too small for the number of patients and have to regularly park in streets opposite. Saying that, the doctors do a good job.

Beech House Surgery

Find Recycling Centres

Harrogate Household Waste Recycling Centre

Wetherby Rd, Harrogate HG3 1DE, UK

Easy access friendly staff. Good opening hours. What more can you want from a refuse centre. Have just read the reviews of people who don't like the opening hours because they work. Well go at the weekend then they are open all day Saturday and Sunday. I work full time so use the weekend and find it a fantastic facility

People friendly enough but closing at 4pm is early for most people to use during the working week. Hence Saturday and Sunday always busy as is Wetherby road so its adding to the bottleneck, why not spread the load and open later at least during summer. AND closing the entire day Wednesday, what about shifts and having this open 7 days a week afterall its already open on Sundays so they must have a rota in place.

Greystones Aggregates & Recycling

Greystones Farm Goldsborough, Knaresborough HG5 8NJ, UK – 01423 865117

Great service, competitive pricing, delivered and collected as agreed.

Absolutely Outstanding! I required a last minute skip for some unforseen building issues and I called Greystones Aggregates the office staff were very helpful and managed to arrange for a skip to be with me within an hour and were highly professional. John was the very helpful guy who delivered the skip and was courteous and polite at every stage. Thanks very much to you all :)

38 High St, Knaresborough HG5 0EQ, UK – 01423 866555

What to say about my visit. Visited on a Saturday, peak time, without a reservation. Was highly impressed when they sat us down in their waiting area, where you sit whilst they prepare your table. They came over, took a drinks order and returned a couple minutes with drinks and took our food order. 5 minutes later we were being sat down at our table as they brought out our starter. The starter was absolutely delicious, we had popadoms with a pickle tray And a mixed grill for 2. Portion size was quite good and food was nice. A short 10 minute wait and we were being served our mains. The curries were aromatic, the only negative was that my curry wasn't quite as spicy as I had hoped for it was closer to a medium than the hot advertised. Took a while after eating for me to be able to get someone's attention to receive the bill. Reasonable priced

Recommended by a local we had to go see what the deal was. Sadly I'm not sure it lived up to the hype. Dishes were good but not as tasty s if have liked, and the place was empty... I guess that's what you get for going for a curry on a Wednesday. Be interested to see it on a Friday night. Can't fault the Stücke though... Charming and friendly throughout... Speedy too.

Spice Merchant Yorkshire

14-16 Castlegate, Knaresborough HG5 8AR, UK – 01423 861777

Have been going here for several years and food on this occasion was not up to usual standard. Garlic chilli chicken. Chicken tough and dish on menu says hot, it was mild. Did not complain as it was acceptable, no more than that. Saying that my wife enjoyed her dish. Decor is in need of serious makeover, looking very tired. Service was good though.

I've rewritten this review as we've been a number of times recently and the food, service and atmosphere have been excellent each time! The team are friendly, helpful and attentive, giving great recommendations on the menu. The service is quick but they're happy for you to sit and take your time and enjoy the experience and the food is bang on target. The restaurant is licensed and the prices are pretty good for the area. Give it a go!


89 High St, Knaresborough HG5 0HL, UK – 01423 867041

Wine list is OK, food reasonable and nicely presented. Staff are lovely and friendly. Decor bit dated and dark.

Great food and extensive wine list with extremely knowledgeable staff.

Nursery and Preschools

Nippers Nursery

Wetherby Rd, Knaresborough HG5 8LG, UK – 01423 865650

When we were moving to the area 3.5 years ago we looked around about half a dozen nurseries for our son. When we visited Nippers we just knew it was the one we wanted him to go to and when our second son was born we made sure he had his name down straight away! Almost all of the staff there now were there when our older son first started at Nippers - they all know us, know both our sons, are kind, helpful and we are always made to feel very welcome. The children play outside EVERY day - full waterproofs and wellies for splashy days and snow. There always seems to be a choice of messy play, baking, soft play, role-play craft activities as well as a huge range of lovely toys and preparation for going to school. My little boy is so proud to show us what he has made! The food at Nippers is fantastic! Everything is home-made, locally sourced where possible and delicious! We've been to many social events at Nippers - weekend and after nursery events with the children (Hot Cross Bun Sunday, Bonfire Party, Jubilee party and many more) as well as evening events for the grown ups (Christmas shopping evening, a fantastic Italian evening with a 3 course meal) and lots of 'stay and play' sessions. Both our boys settled into Nippers very quickly, have made some lovely friends and we have too through all the extra events. I cannot recommend Nippers highly enough. Before we moved to the area we thought our son's previous nursery was good. It wasn't a patch on Nippers!

I have been using Nippers nursery for over five years for both of my daughters. The nursery has never faltered in its care of my children and others. It allows the children to explore their independence and their growing world in a unique way. It is one of the most creative and inspiring settings I have seen, and there is always something afoot somewhere, be it a play wedding, building a spiders web, or baking. Which brings me on to the food.... the smells coming from the kitchen are truly wonderful, and most days I want to stay for lunch as I smell it being prepared as I drop off. The staff are always fun, supportive and caring towards the kids, energy and enthusiasm always high, and the children feel that. The management team Julie and Carolyn are truly fantastic in terms of their support of the staff, the children and the parents. I have personally been so very supported through a very challenging time, which has helped enormously. Always there to answer questions, help in any way they can. Above and beyond the call of duty many times. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough.
