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!

Family Dental Practice

27B Vesta Ave, St Albans AL1 2PG, UK – 01727 815375

I wanna say a big thanks to Dr Juliet Henderson and her nurse. They are the best team ever and definitely I will recommend Dr Henderson , she is the best. Many thanks and for The Rumanian girl on the reception.

In choosing e dentist you need to be sure of excellent treatment, as pain free as possible, and a great personal service. In assessing the practice I would be awarding an A* on all counts. I particularly appreciate the lovely dental nurse who is so concerned for your comfort and peace of mind and the calm and professional way the dentist explains everything and is always willing to take time and to give additional pain relief if needed. No one need be frightened of coming to the Family Dental Practice and do bring your children for a great start to their dental health. They are wonderful with children! Jenny Owen

You'll wait weeks for an appointment, and then you may be booked into the surgery across town after you've specified this surgery. Over-prescribed and still taking on patients!

Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Gym

Highfield Park Dr, St Albans AL4 0AH, UK – 01727 816100

Best gym in St Albans by far. Great staff, state of the art equipment, nice cafe and always spotlessly clean. Can not recommend this place more.

Very good for a 'globo' gym, decent selection of equipment including small lifting platforms and a sled. Sometimes classes and or PTs take up too much space in the gym making it hard to workout if you don't want to sit on machines. Also please maintain the Olympic bars, the ends are supposed to easily spin, not have signs of rust.. overall recommend apart from those minor caveats.

St Peter's Church

Riverside, London Colney, St Albans AL2 1QA, UK – 01727 769797

I visited St Peter's recently and came to the Sunday service. It's always a little daunting walking into a church you aren't familiar with but I received a very friendly and warm welcome from those there. The church itself is very clean, bright, warm and comfortable and the service was uplifting. I even stayed for coffee and biscuits afterwards and was very pleased that several people took the trouble to come and talk to me! I felt very at ease and it was so nice to see so many smiling faces.

Skip Hire St Albans Ltd

1A Branch Rd, Park Street, St Albans AL2 2LU, UK – 01727 405060

First class service. Never hired a skip before but these guys made it so easy we won't hesitate to use again and again. Communication was excellent from Frazer from start to finish (even though he was on holiday). Would highly recommend.

I used St Albans skip hire as new to the area and wanted a local firm. Fraser gave me a good quote then supplied a fast and prompt service 8am the next day. They then collected and dropped of a new one once when asked. Driver on picking up the 2nd skip was Polite and helpful. Would use again. Thanks Fraser and team. Tony

I T R I Ltd

3 Curo Park, Frogmore, St Albans AL2 2DD, UK – 01727 875544

Who is Richard Wilkinson and why has he provided a one-star blank review? None of the ITRI staff have any recollection of him and, according to his profile, he seems to have provided a number of these sorts of reviews around the Herts/Beds area. Richard, if you are reading this, please get in touch - we can help you!

Great range of technical services.

KSR Skips Ltd

Ivorys Industrial Estate/Harper La, Radlett WD7 7HU, UK – 01923 854551

I had booked a skip from a different local company to then be told that they wouldn't be able to deliver the skip due to unforeseen circumstances, I rang KSR and said they could get me a skip out promptly and there prices are very competitive, office staff and drivers are friendly and ensure that we were happy with the service. I would definitely recommend this company.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bricket Wood

Beefeater Moor Mill

Smug Oak Lane, Bricket Wood, Colney Street, Radlett AL2 3PN, UK – 01727 875557

Nice meal. Steak was rare though we'd asked for medium to well. Service was a little slow but nothing too bad. Waiter was polite, as were all the staff. The venue itself is great. Lovely old mill wheel and internal workings. On the whole a good meal and night out. Not exceptional but good.

We had a quick bite for lunch here. Food is OK, nothing to special but nice. Lunch menu was well priced and they offer bottomless soft drinks. The restaurant is in a really nice setting which makes a pleasant place to visit.

Sopwell House

Cottonmill Ln, St Albans AL1 2HQ, UK – 01727 864477

A lovely experience. Spa and dinner with over night stay in the balcony sweet. Anniversary meal in the restaurant with an extra celebratory sweet. Food and wine was superb. Topped off with some rather special cocktails in the bar. Selection at breakfast was incredible.

Just half an hours drive from north London and we're in the countryside at Sopwell. Plenty of attentive staff on a busy weekend - 3 weddings, lots of guests. Clean well presented room. We went for one night spa deal. More expensive than really wanted to pay, but the spa was spotless, pool large and pristine clean, and reflexology treatment of extremely high standard. 3 meals were all good - perfect roast beef and Yorkshire puddings, plus tasty deserts.

Cinnamon Lounge

1 Shenley Ln, London Colney, St Albans AL2 1LP, UK – 01727 822015

Exceptional! A privilege to eat here! Simply sublime! Authentic and delicious and freshly prepared just like home style cooking!

Been visiting for years and it's always great! A*

Nursery and Preschools

Ladybirds Nursery

Hill End Ln, St Albans AL4 0FE, UK – 01727 730783

My daughter started at the nursery when she was 9 months old and is now in her final pre-school year. Both she and I and now my son love it. The nursery has a very warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff are amazing! there is a genuine warmth for the children in their care. It's a very nurturing environment and the children are encouraged to become independent thinkers. The nursery take full advantage of its fantastic location and the children are taken outside at least twice a day. I cannot recommend Ladybirds enough.

My daughter thrived during her time at Ladybirds in the Kingfisher and Pre-school rooms. The staff are excellent, the environment fun yet comfortable and best of all they get their much needed outdoor time come rain or shine in the fabulous Highfield Park! I am eagerly waiting for my son to start his journey at Ladybirds to follow in his sisters footsteps. Highly recommend.

Busy Bees at Glenalmond

14 King Harry Ln, St Albans AL3 4AP, UK – 01727 854499

This Mansion House is a WWII S.O.E Base which masterminded operatives parachuting in to occupied europe during the second world war. What makes this site unique against any other base is that this is where the german double agent Kim Thilby who had infiltrated SOE command structure oversaw the failure of 200 + missions and the subsequent capture of personnell whom had just landed. He also went on during the cold war and became known as 'The Third Man'. This building is unique wartime heritage and is an important site in the world today.

One of our kids went here, the staff were excellent. Better value than Home From Home as well. More interesting is the history of the house. Notorious spy Kim Philby was here, as it was an MI6 secret office. There are tunnels going from here to the Fighting Cocks and possibly beyond.

Public & Preparatory Schools

St Columba's College

King Harry Lane, St Albans AL3 4AW, UK – 01727 855185

SCC is a decent secondary school, not terrible, but nothing special either. The local state school where I live produces consistently better exam results every year. Ironically, in a school which likes to emphasize it's Catholic ethos so much ,any student who is catholic is very much part of the minority. Facilities are good, and include newly refurbished classrooms and gym. Most of the teachers are excellent although the school likes to cut costs wherever possible, so if you want your son to be taught by 21 year olds, straight out of university, then this is the school you are looking for. The school does do an excellent job of enhancing student's soft skills and teaching courtesy and respect. St Columba's is a good school, just not good enough to justify the ever-increasing fees

Its really amazing, I mean I like it men ,wish visiting the place.
