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!

Tonbridge Castle

Castle St, Tonbridge TN9 1BG, UK – 01732 770929

As a site of historic castle ruins, it is lovely, well maintained, if small, location to wander around. It is in close proximity to the Medway River where boats are available in the summer. All overseas guests that I have introduced to the area have enjoyed their time here.

There's not much of the castle to look at. There's an impressive gate, a field on the other side, a small moat and a hill with a well on top (provides a very nice view of the grounds!)

Andrew House Dental Practice Tonbridge

13 London Rd, Tonbridge TN10 3AB, UK – 01732 353358

I have been using this dental practice for over 30 years. The reception staff are always really welcoming. My own dentist has a caring and professsional approach and has carried out some complicated dentistry work on me. l can honestly say it has never hurt and the results are great. Why would l go elsewhere!

Tonbridge Dental Centre

155 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1BX, UK – 01732 361934

After my own dentist booking me an appointment in 2 weeks time !! And dentaline giving me antibiotics when I was in agony, other dentists saying they could not see me as I was not on their books, I tried TDC and they said to my relief they would see me if it was an emergency. I now am sitting in reception with an extremely happy numb mouth waiting to have a route canal treatment , when they actually don't have space on the list to see me. Now that's service .

The staff are highly professional with a personal touch! The dental care I have received over the last 9 years has been fantastic.

The Tonbridge Clinic

339 Shipbourne Rd, Tonbridge TN10 3EU, UK – 01732 350255

After 9 months of trying to sort out a painful Achilles tendon problem, sadly without any lasting success, I eventually decided to visit The Tonbridge Clinic back in November 2016. Fortunately, I was introduced to Tim Versey Smith and he quickly established the likely cause of my heel pain. With his guidance and support over a few short months, the daily pain that I had been experiencing has disappeared and I have even managed to meet my goal of getting back to regular running. Thank you very much Tim. Dealing with Tim and other members of the team at The Tonbridge Centre has been a real pleasure. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services.

I was referred to The Tonbridge Clinic by a friend following a fracture to my foot. Chris Worsfold has been amazing in not only suggesting an exercise regime but also in giving peace of mind to ensure that I regain full flexibility. To find an expert who is both friendly and approachable with a real way in understanding your concerns has been invaluable. Friendly and flexible booking, lovely surroundings, all an added bonus. Am all-round positive experience. Thank you.

Lili Waste Services

Ronnies Wharf, 6 Lyons Crescent, Tonbridge TN9 1EX, UK – 0845 505 0500

Running a busy cinema you can imagine how much rubbish we generate on a weekly basis. We have used other companies in the past but have been with Lili for a while now. Since day one our account manager, Jade has taken care of all our needs from arranging excess rubbish to be collected, arranging extra pick-ups during the busy times and for us to have new bins. Jades customer service and relations is second to none, nothing seems to be too much trouble for her and always goes that extra mile to help, more companies needs someone like Jade. I cannot recommend Lili highly enough they offer a professional high quality service at a very competitive price and if we have had any little issues Lili has rectified them extremely quickly.

A very personable company, approachable, reliable and actually listened to us when we needed to make some changes. No hesitation in recommending.

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

Alishan Restaurant

149 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DH, UK – 01732 770616

I have visited this restaurant many times with friends and have always been impressed with the quality of the food. The menu is impressive, and includes many dishes that might not usually be found in other similar places. My favourite so far is Railway Lamb, worth a try! They accommodate walk-in groups, but best to book in advance on a busy night.

Great staff and the food was amazing. They have a lot more choice of dishes from all over India than the normal restaurant. The meat was whole chicken breast and lamb chop in the sauces, prime cuts. Really good tasting food.

Honeymoon Chinese Restaurant

2-4 Barden Rd, Tonbridge TN9 1TS, UK – 01732 358888

Excellent local restaurant. Always very friendly and the food is delicious

When i visited, the restaurant was very busy. Despite this, service was fast and the food was hot, tasty and I have to say this was the best Chinese I've had in a long while.

Gaab Kao

117 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DL, UK – 01732 358730

Great food, friendly. Been a couple of times because they do #vegan options. Really tasty.

Recently ate here with my wife for an anniversary dinner, service was fast and friendly. Food was excellent with good selection of Thai dishes available. Recommend booking for peak times as it's not huge and is popular.
