Banks & Building Societies around Leigh

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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

I saw JR Metal & Waste Recycling advertised and rang up to ask about clearing my garden. The price was good and the person on the phone was extremely helpful. The guys turned up on time, did a brilliant job, stuck to the quote provided and nothing was too much trouble. They promptly cleared away any mess and were incredibly friendly will use again and highly recommend.

Equinox Recycling Ltd

Equinox Swanmead Way,, Cannon Ln, Tonbridge TN9 1PP, UK – 01732 355865

Excellent service, arrived exactly when they said. Driver was very skilled moving the skip lorry into the tightest position in order to put the skip where i wanted. Will use again! Cant fault!

Have used these a few times now. The drivers are well presented and are willing to take there time to get skip in place even if it is abit awkward and always deliver and collect when they say they will. The staff are polite on the phone and are willing to help if you are unsure what size skip you need. Overall excellent service!!!!

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 Leigh

The Clock House Tapas and Bar

8 Barden Rd, Tonbridge TN9, UK – 01732 302072

Great location next to the station, which is good as you can stumble home after having a bit too many off the cocktail menu. Two for one cocktails until 7. Food was pretty good, spoiled for choice on what to have from the menu!

Mouth-watering Wonderment When me and a friend couldn't decide where to go for a mid-week catch-up we were delighted to come across The Clockhouse. I jumped off the train and met her inside, where the waitress greeted me with a smile and showed me to the table. She made me the best Pornstar Martini I've tasted and left us to chat for a few minutes over the tempting and inviting menu. On our waitress' return she also told us all about the specials, what's been popular, and asked whether there was anything else we needed. We chatted for a while asking about the classic tapas dishes, recommendations, and queried some of the craft beer. She knew everything. When the food came out, followed by another cocktail, I was amazed at how flavorsome the dish was. I've been to a few tapas but can't remember their dishes making such an impression. The squid melted in the mouth, and the casserole definitely tingled the taste buds. I recommend this and think it's definitely worth a look, whether it's for an intimate meal or just for a quick drink after work. I'm going back next week and can't wait. Well done to the team, it's a great place.

Oriental Master Chef

14 Avebury Ave, Tonbridge TN9 1TN, UK – 01732 770888

Great little takeaway. The food from here is lovely, and usually served with a smile. The food is freshly cooked in the open kitchen, so you know you are getting good food. The friendly staff are always able to give suggestions for new things to try.

Nice and clean. Good food

Saltwaters

2 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1EL, UK – 01732 366333

Excellent food, fresh and tasty and like nothing else this town has seen. I've tried lots of fish and chip shops up and down the country and this place deserves an award. The chips are excellent, the quality of the fish is superb and the batter is divine. They use top quality rapeseed oil and you can tell it's changed regularly. This place is heaving and I can see why. The staff are friendly and patient whilst you make your choices and it's nice to see people taking pride in what they do. Price wise, it's fairly priced given the quality of food and service.

Best seafood restaurant in Tonbridge family run with a great menu a must for any visitors coming to town

Staff are great with our kids

The Judd School

Brook Street, Tonbridge TN9 2PN, UK – 01732 770880

Pretty good school. As you would expect from any school, some teachers are better than others. Having said that, throughout my time at Judd, I have been thoroughly impressed by the level of teaching and the help and guidance available from staff. The school also enjoys a strong community spirit and as you can probably tell from some of the other reviews, has a healthy rivalry with Skinners. I will definitely miss my time as a student here as I move on to uni this year.

The Judd School is a great place to learn for secondary school students. It has a brilliant reputation for its high grades and excellent teaching. I am personally a student at this school and from my experience, the teachers make well-structured lessons and are always willing to answer questions and help students excel further. However, this is surprisingly not a "sink or swim" place. The buildings and facilities are sufficient, especially the science, technology and music departments. The Judd School even allows students to use the facilities for "super-curricular" activities and competitions.

I had to relocate to the UK for work. I needed to move both my daughters, one of whom were busy with GCSE's. This school went out of their way to assist my daughter in every regard. I couldn't be happier with the school, and my daughters couldn't be happier in the school.
