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!

Dental Surgeries

Advance Dental and Orthodontic Care

Lakin Drive, Highlight Park, Barry CF62 8AS, UK – 01446 489137

I visited Advance Dental after being recommended by a friend around 2 years ago for full braces. I looked at a number of Orthodontists, had a few consultations and even though the dentist was around a 45 minute drive from my house it was without doubt the best I had looked at. When your spending money, especially on your teeth it's best to find a place best suited to you. The full experience from start to finish was amazing, Andy and all the girls at the practise are absolutely lovely. I've since recommended to family members and friends and they've gone on to have treatments like teeth whitening etc. The girls were brilliant at fitting my appointments around my busy schedule. As well as a brilliant service my teeth are actually perfect now! I love them! The after care package is brilliant I couldn't recommend enough.

I've been having a significant amount of treatment at Advanced dental care over the last several months. Having put off treatment for a long long while it was great finding the team there to sort things out in a way that has made the dentist no longer something to find that excuse to avoid. The reception team and dentists and assistants are friendly and professional. Plenty of time is taken to discuss options, talk through xray' s and plan out work that needs doing. They do go out of their way to live up to the "pain free" and "caring" motto. For emergency visits or longer term work, from my own experience with them, I can recommend the team at Advanced Dental!

The Waterfront Dental Surgery

Heol Y Llongau, Barry CF63 4AR, UK – 01446 721777

I don’t like going to the dentist so I would like to congratulate everyone in waterfront for making my visit a very pleasant one. The staff were lovely and the dentists excellent. I would recommend this surgery to all my friends.

An excellent dentist practice. Fantastic customer service from start to finish. I was seen by Dr. Anthony Bannon and received excellent advice and dental care on a re-occuring problem that started a few months ago. Haven't had any issues since!

West Quay Medical Centre

Hood Rd, Barry CF62 5QN, UK – 01446 722792

I have been registered with this practice for many years and I find the GP's nurses and reception staff very helpful. Even though the practice is busy they always do their best to help.

So many negative comments about this surgery. It's underfunded, by the Tories, same as the rest of the NHS. But because everyone in Barry has managed to delude themselves into thinking that they're middle class, and voted the Tories in, that's what you get. When the NHS fails, I have no doubt that the same people will blame the NHS, not 'Austerity', which is just a Tory excuse for the cuts that they will always bring. Under the Tories, austerity won't end, they are anti public spending regardless of the state of the economy.

Waterfront Medical Centre

Heol Y Llongau, Barry CF63 4AR, UK – 01446 734131

Dave Bolwell Physiotherapist, excellent & friendly service. Started in a load of pain & now 95% recovered. Took a couple of weeks but well worth it. The combination of physio & acupuncture worked really well.

Fantastic NHS practice , doctors are all very thorough , caring and actually take time to listen . Receptionists and admin staff always very friendly but efficient . Have appointments on a regular basis and never have to wait long to see a doctor . Been a patient here over 5 years and would never go anywhere else now.

Porthceri Surgery

Park Cres, Barry CF62 6HE, UK – 01446 735365

I've been a patient of the practice for 18 months or so now. As a diabetic I'm fairly regular and get to see them during both the quiet and busy times. Admittedly it can sometimes be difficult to get through for an appointment but this is the case pretty much wherever you go. The professional opinion of Dr Coleman has always for me been spot on as with Dr Baig. Urgent prescriptions have always been on time and sometimes quicker.And despite the considerable workload, the receptionists and other patient-facing staff have always been 100% . One of the better aspects of moving to Barry from Milton Keynes.

Streets Brasserie

4 Broad St, Barry CF62 7AA, UK – 01446 721440

One of my favourite places to eat, lovely and cosy feel to the place. Food is not adventurous by any means, but it doesn’t have to be. If you like tasty hearty food that is hand prepared, then you won’t regret trying it.

Lovely restaurant, lovely staff and of course awesome food.

Brewers Fayre Barry Island (Cardiff Airport)

The Waterfront, Ffordd Y Mileniwm, Barry CF62 5AB, UK – 01446 724971

Very tasty Vegan burgers. Well put together and presented. Friendly, attentive staff. Not great chips but rest of the meal was lovely. Seriously over the moon to find a really good Vegan burger! 💜💜💜

Monday 21/8/17 - we had no reservations, manager & staff were very accommodating seeing as we were a party of 14 (adults & children). Staff were very friendly. We were seated quickly. Only bad comment is food took over half hr to arrive, bit it was delicious. Tuesday 22/8/17 - completely different to yesterday. Manager was not in a good mood at all, quite rude. Food was delivered quick, but it looked like it had been thrown on the plates. Also 1 meal took forever to arrive apparently there was a mix up with the tickets!! Try telling that to a 2yr old..

Hang Fire Southern Kitchen

The Pumphouse, Hood Rd, Barry CF62 5BE, UK

Didn't disappoint! I've tried the pop up stall a few times at food festivals etc and I admit I did wonder if the novelty of it all would be a little lost in a permanent premises but boy was I wrong! Food is as impeccable as it has always been and the welcome is twice as warm. Plus I really noticed that unlike many other meat related establishments I didn't leave there smelling like a smoked burger myself - impressive. Menu is meaty as you would expect although there is a token vegetarian choice on the dinner menu that my wife ordered and it looked so delicious I almost wished I'd ordered it myself....almost ☺ I personally can recommend the brisket and burnt ends....delicious. So in short I thoroughly enjoyed my food experience here, the location is perfect and I really hope they continue to flourish.

Visited Hang Fire a few years ago when they were doing pop ups at different pubs around Cardiff. The food was good then but have recently their dedicated restaurant. The taste and quality has come leaps and bounds I’d say. I had the bit boss which gives a selection of meats, the bones fall straight off the meat the in house mustard is something special also. Their craft beer they make with Crafty devil is also very good. Will certainly be back again, I just won’t leave as long this time round. Also staff were brilliant, human and personal. Bit of a rarity these days.
