Banks

Lloyds Bank

3-5 Bridge St, Newbury RG14 5BQ, UK – 0345 300 0000

All the staff in this branch are fabulous: efficient, knowledgeable, welcoming. It is a pleasure to have business here. Today I had to come in twice; I watched the smiling and lovely Laura Faulkner greet and serve customers. It was utterly delightful and even though she wasn't serving me, she filled my day with sunshine. On my second visit, I was served by Laura and I received the same warmth and sparkle she had shown others. What excellent customer service!!

There is not enough staff to keep that place running, had to wait for my turn almost 30 minutes.

West Berkshire Council Recycling Centre

Newtown Rd, Greenham, Newbury RG20 9AG, UK – 01635 519080

After complaining a few years back with how I was talked to for not parking in correct manner (* warning:potential for apathy/boredom if staff aren't rotated to work different bays; I witnessed offhand/power trip aspect creeping in on my last trip to the tip ; it is a job that is to be respected by employer employee and the drivers alike....yes I'm very sure there's negative and unacceptable behaviour by both service user and staff - I've seen very rude and patronising drivers for example) ...but from then receiving a letter of apology from the council I had from then on superb dealings with management; I stopped short at saying yes to having the particular staff member be made to apologise for his attitude (it smacked of subservience docked cap etc), the bays were changed to what we see today and I've not had any reason to comment on behaviour-...it's on the whole a well run establishment; I'd agree that perhaps in vigilance to check on permits there may be less staff energies placed on instructing drivers where bays are available and I DO question the sanity to have the permits, but for the intensity of workload and the many bays to accommodate as many forms of recycling I think they do s pretty good job

Friendly staff.... but as a result of having to check permits on the way in (don't get me started on this topic - its counter productive) , there is now no-one indicating the available bays! Come-on West-Berks council - provide a SERVICE to your rate payers , don't just make life more difficult with each twist! Jc

We truly have a great functioning local hospital and for that praise to the wider NHS.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Newbury

The Woodspeen Restaurant

Lambourn Rd, Woodspeen, Newbury RG20 8BN, UK – 01635 265070

From stepping through the door, the experience begins. The staff are so attentive and though it's really busy you still get a first class personal service. The wine list is fenominal, as well as the beers; plus they have a great selection non-alcoholic cocktails. The quality of the food speaks volumes for itself...enough said...In summary, a wonderful gastronomic train ride from beginning to end... recommend you get on board!

We had a lovely meal there this evening. The setting is modern inside with loads of friendly staff to help. We weren't left languishing waiting to order, everything was nice and prompt with feeling rushed. The waiter was very knowledgeable about gin as they have 28 different types! The food was excellent, as expected for somewhere of this calibre. Good portions, interesting mix of flavours and not outrageously expensive. We will definitely be coming back.

The River Bar Restaurant

Newbury Manor, London Rd, Newbury RG14 2BY, UK – 01635 528838

Top restaurant in a beautiful setting. Located next to Newbury Manor hotel this is a hidden gem. If your looking to have dinner with clients this is one of the best in the area.

Party of 10 attended for their Sunday lunch menu. Looked after us very well. Table looking out onto water. Really enjoyed the day.

Chilis Indian Restaurant

Station Approach, Newbury RG14 5DG, UK – 01635 522577

Visited last night with my wife, it was my second visit and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was superb with hardly see any oil floating, we did have to wait a while for the food but that's because each dish is cooked individually and it was certainly worth the wait. The lady who served us was fantastic, she was attentive without being overbearing and very friendly. The owner popped over to say hello and it was nice to see that it's a real family affair. Best Indian food I have eaten in a long time and I will definitely be back again and again.

Fantastic food, great service and a lovely little place just near the train station. Food can be cooked to your own taste in other words you can have it really hot and spicy or mild which was great for myself and partner who are on different planets in terms of chilli! Will definitely be going back for more but make sure you book as is usually busy whenever have walked past...

Nursery and Preschools

Little Bears Day Nursery

6 Northcroft Ln, Newbury RG14 1BU, UK – 01635 44184

Both my son and daughter have attended Little Bears and loved it. The staff are very caring of the children and they provide enriching experiences for them. My daughter is now at school and still talks about things she did at 'teddy bears!' My son has just moved into the preschool room and is really enjoying himself. I would recommend this nursery and preschool :)

Little Bears is a great nursery and pre-school. The staff are all enthusiastic, have plenty of time for the children and really put their development to the fore. Our eldest son has been there for two years, he loves it there and his little brother will be joining in the not too distant future. Highly recommended.

I LOVE IT

Trinity School

Love Ln, Newbury RG14 2DU, UK – 01635 510500

Actually a great school, I went here all through year 7 to sixth form and came out with all I needed to move on in my education due to excellent facilities and opportunities. I decided to write this review when seeing the obviously biased rating, which anyone could see is primarily from resentful students.

Perfect

Public & Preparatory Schools

St Gabriel's School and Sandleford Nursery

This is a wonderful school where students get an excellent education whilst enjoying every moment. I cannot praise enough the amazing teachers who are so committed and caring. St.Gabriels was the best decision I made for my daughter five years ago...I can tell fault it.

This school is amazing they may sound posh but they are really not
