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 last of the good banks in my opinion ! I agree with all the previous reviews that this bank has only now 1 branch left ! even when it had more branches there was none near me so i still had to travel into the city !! .... oh well apart from that i cannot fault this bank for nothing to be honest ... it is the last of the personal service banks which listens to the customer and tries there best to meet your personal requirements , without the famous .... " the computer says NO ! " they have given me access to services which all the mainstreet banks all refused me back in 2007 and some still do now in 2012 ! they were the 1st bank during a bad credit rating period to give me a full Current account ( with an overdraft after 6 months ) , i must say the account opening process needs to be made easy to do online , but is still straight forward regardless. Plus i can use the Post Office to pay money in and take it out again , as long as you run your account well , you should have many years of happy banking with them !

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Oban

YuWu Chinese Restaurant

1 Railway Pier, Oban PA34 4LW, UK – 01631 563338

Great service, pleasant surroundings, food along the lines of a "traditional" British oriental restaurant. If you venture off the beaten track of beef, green pepper and blackbean sauce there are some interesting scallop and salmon dishes which benefit from the excellent quality of seafood ingredients in this part of the world. It is still not "authentic" Chinese food.

Excellent food. The prawn toasts were lush and the scallops in ginger and spring onion and the chicken satay were delicious. Servicr grest. We will be back.

Cuan Mor Restaurant

60 George St, Oban PA34 5SD, UK – 01631 565078

Visited today. Had the Taster Platter for 2. Every single item. Demolished. Faultless and so tasty. Everything was well made, well presented and well enjoyed. Recommend to the highest. Also had sticky toffee and the chocolate box. Both sublime. Very happy we visited 😃

Easily the best fish and chips I've had in some time! The fish tasted amazing and the batter was lovely and light, add that to the delicious chunky chips and we have a winner. Despite the town being packed with tourists and extras added in due to a music festival the team working were attentive and very pleasant to all. Well done, I'll be back next time I'm in Oban!

Coast Restaurant

104 George Street, Oban, Argyll And Bute PA34 5NT, UK – 01631 569900

First time I have been here. Chose this restaurant as was highly rated by trip advisor and had friends coming to visit from down south and wanted to take them somewhere memorable for a meal. I have to say was not disappointed. The food was excellent. Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. I have not had such a lovely meal for years. The staff were very professional , friendly and helpful. We were delighted. Can't recommend this gem of a place highly enough.xx

Very tasty food. Excellent service. The blade of beef melted in your mouth. Loved the light bits menu which offered 3 high quality courses at an excellent standard for just £17.50. Amazing value. Would highly recommend restaurant but booking in advance is essential.
