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!

The Co-op Bank - Luton

2-6 Alma St, Luton LU1 2PL, UK – 01582 410342

The staff are friendly and helpful enough but very slow at serving customers. I'm not sure if this is due to their computer systems because they make an awful lot of keystrokes for a simple transaction.

Helpful, friendly and gave informative advice

Local Chambers of Commerce for LU1 5RE. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support.

Luton Borough Council

Town Hall, George St, Luton LU1 2BQ, UK – 01582 546000

I do not work there. I am new to Luton. The call was quite swift. They directed me properly. The guy had impaired speech so it was hard to understand him on the phone. But he was extremely helpful and gave me all my information quickly. The only reason I gave 3 starts is because they don't have many services over the phone and I have to go to the library or email to set up my council tax if I don't have Internet connection. So that is terrible for such advanced technological advancement era.

last two occasions I visited , one for blue badge renewal and then for bus pass renewal . excellent service . thankyou very much .

Best dentist ever been to brilliant dentist !! Kesha Patel excellent highly recommend her !! Transferring my whole family over to her ! Really nice decent decent girls down thier.

Maple Dental Clinic

29 Upper George St, Luton LU1 2RD, UK – 01582 727314

Been going to this dentist for a long time. This time I got my front teeth fixed and they look and feel like normal teeth. The work was done by Dr Amit Salian. Well recommend by me. Never had any problems with receptionists but sometime they can be busy with more than one customers at a time. A+++ pic below are my teeth now after work today.

Very unprofessional. Receptionist was very rude. Called twice to make an appointment but the way she was talking i wont bother. i wont recommend them. she was not helpful at all. The should train their staff first. called at 11:05, 28/07/2016. They called and apologised and ensure they will fix it.

Vogue Dental Care

260-262 Crawley Green Rd, Luton LU2 0SJ, UK – 01582 432181

A clean, modern and lovely practice providing a great service throughout. My treatment was completed in a professional yet friendly manner making the whole experience somewhat enjoyable - I will be returning!

Are you looking for a quality and experienced dentist? Look no further. I was exactly in that position about 5 months ago, when my teeth were crying for help. Sounds familiar? Keep on reading. I then came across Vouge Dental Care, in specific Dr K H Katechia. You honestly can't go wrong with this magician. You get your dental check up done including necessary x-rays (using their cutting edge technology), along with detailed treatment plan including itemised cost so you know exactly how much you're going to spend from the beginning to the end. I had a root canal treatment, a crown install, decay removal, small and big fillings - no pain, always professional, no delays or cancellations and you even get to learn what's happening step by step throughout the treatment which I found very interesting. They are very flexible and will definitely find the time that suits you if you have a busy life style like I do, early mornings or late evenings are no problem. I will always recommend this clinic and my friends and family will definitely visit. Thank you for your help!

The Ashcroft Practice

49 Ashcroft Rd, Luton LU2 9AU, UK – 01582 391831

My whole family are with this surgery and have always been looked after from easily accessible appointments through to prescriptions at short notice. Thank you Dr Bath and team!

Thr doctors are great and pay attention to your health issues and address them where needed. However following a visit to the nurse one morning I felt there was a cold attitude and the nurse kept waving everything off as being normal with no further information or any sign of actually wanting to help. This was a very disappointing visit as normally they are quite nice.

Ali-Khan Circumcision Centre

21 Westbourne Rd, Luton LU4 8JD, UK – 01582 483344

Would recommend to anyone looking for this procedure to be done. Dr Ali is brilliant and gives you advice at home if you need it!

I was very happy with the service , the way he explain the procedure. ... he give to my son anesthetic and he didn't move or cry ...i was wondering if will be on pain .. cry... but no pain !! He call us after the procedure and he is available 24h!!Something what you need and give us a great feeling! ! The place doesn't look great i was a bit concerned at the beginning, but i went with my gots feeling ...and i am happy i choose this place !! He is a very good Dr ! I recommend this clinic with confidence ! !

Bute House Medical Centre

Grove Rd, Luton LU1 1RW, UK – 01582 729428

I've been at this surgery for 11 years, and yes it has it up's and down's, but whenever I spoken about any problems it is usually sorted out straight away. Normally I can get a appointment for the same day, docs are always polite, and most of the receptions staff are extremely friendly. For Luton this is a good surgery, been to a few and this is one of the best I have been too. As with anything there is always room for improvements but this surgery has more good then bad. Keep up the good work. Doctors are extremely nice and always wants to helps.

My wife and I have COPD and was referred to the Luton treatment centre by our doctor and done a 7 week course. we were put through a gentle exercise programme and given talks and shown film on our condition which we found most beneficial, and encouraged us to carry on the exercises at home and our local gym.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Luton

Man Ho Chinese Restaurant

72 Dunstable Rd, Luton LU1 1EH, UK – 01582 723366

I’d highly recommend this restaurant. I have been here several times and the food is fantastic- generous portions and very very tasty!! (Make sure you try the spare ribs!) The staff are all very friendly and will go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. We also went here for one of their themed dirty dancing evenings. This was great fun and I’d definitely suggest it for birthdays, celebrations etc. I will definitely be going back again soon.

Man Ho is by far the best Chinese restaurant to grab some take away or have lunch or dinner at. They have very friendly staff. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to eat some amazing Chinese Food!

Greenfields Restaurant

11G The Gallery, Luton LU1 2TW, UK – 01582 414954

Some reviewers have said its pricey? Food freshly cooked on an open griddle, brought to the table by a waitress, clean cutlery, then taken away to be washed up. This isn’t a fast food joint and these are the nice things we pay for. The staff are all friendly with a nice atmosphere. The boss has had the restaurant for 40 years and is the longest serving shop owner in the Mall so they must be doing something right. Lots to chose from and some good deserts. Ice creams and milkshakes that the kids just love. Lots of regular customers are a sure sign that this place is keeping people happy.

Lovely place, bit dated but its nice and the food ks good and reasonably priced

Lucky House

376 Leagrave Rd, Luton LU3 1RG, UK – 01582 493946

Rise & Shine Nursery

Chaucer House, 134 Biscot Rd, Luton LU3 1AX, UK – 01582 736439

my son has been attending this nursery for nearly a year now. at first i was worried as he is young whether he will adjust or not but never had a problem. it took him two days to settle in, i loved the way there strategy was to get a child to adjust. He loves attending his nursery because of the environment that is created for him and ESPECIALLY because of the staff. He is so attached to them and speaks so highly of them. As a parent to see your child this happy attending nursery is a relief and reassurance that rise and shine are definently doing something right. Thank you all your help and support.. keep it up

My son has been attending rise and shine since he was a toddler at 24months. Not only have the nursery supported my child's transition out of nappies within 2weeks of him joining, they have made the move to the pre-school room just as smooth and they continue to support the transition he will be making to reception. My son has such an attachment to the staff that he often gets teary during the holiday as he misses being at the nursery. My son has caught several viruses along the way however the doctor says its normal for children that age attending nursery. I am really sorry and surprised to hear that a parent is unhappy at rise and shine as I have found the nursery staff friendly and approachable. Thanking you for all your support and patience keep up the good work. Me and my son will miss you dearly from September.
