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!

Local Chambers of Commerce for HR9 5AA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

Fantastic local skip place and we have the best staff in the U.K., friendly, helpful, always smiling even on the drab days, shame it's only open 3 days a week, having said that it's open at the right times like weekends and it's open decent hours and is real easy to get in and out top marks for the flow through system xx

The Ross site is easily accessible and has a really good flow through system. It could be open every day which would be useful but this is not essential. The guys that work there are always helpful . I have been to quite a few sites in various places and Ross is easily the best Well done

Dental Surgeries

Oasis Dental Care Ross-on-Wye

Old Maid's Walk, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5HB, UK – 01989 562061

Having recently changed from private patient to NHS I was saddened at how bleak the consultation room was. The Dentist was fine but the contrast could not have been more different I feel the room needs atmosphere and a poster or anything to make the patient feel comfortable and a place to relax.

Warrendale Dental Care

Warrendale Dental Care, Chase Rd, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5JQ, UK – 01989 562052

This is one of the best dental practices my wife and I have experienced; and we've lived in many different places, and so had treatment at many different practices. The positive experience starts at the reception desk, with super friendly staff, and an informal atmosphere to ease the nerves of those who aren't too happy about a visit to the dentist! Most importantly of all, the quality of care is first class. Unlike many practices, they keep time free for emergency treatment, which was of great benefit to my wife recently, when she broke a chunk off one of her teeth - she was treated within a few hours of making the phone call! But best of all, the dental team give you all the time you need to make decisions about treatment options, and never give you the impression that they're rushing to meet a deadline. We'd recommend this practice without reservation. Graham & Meg Fletcher

Trust is a very important part of confidence in a dentist, and this surgery has excellent dentists and staff who know their stuff. Its also very clean and modern, everyone is friendly too . Everything you need and want in a dental practice really.

Alton Street Surgery

Alton St, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5AB, UK – 01989 563646

Very good surgery, polite staff and I have always found the surgery to be efficiently run. Yes of course there are going to be times that appointments overrun making the doctors and nurses late but this is the fault of the general public, adding “oh and one other thing” not the surgery. Please do remember that this service is not a private practice and as such they are operating as well as they can under stringent budgets set by accountants and managers rather than healthcare professionals.

Ross Podiatry Practice

Gloucester House, 35 Old Gloucester Rd, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5PB, UK – 01989 566633

Alan was very thorough in resolving a problem with my foot and very pleasant in his manner. Would happily recommend him!

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

St Michaels Hospice

4 Penyard Ln, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5NR, UK – 01989 565190

The hospice shop always has an intriguing variety of items - old & new - for sale. It has enough furniture to equip a bedsit, flat or small 🏠 for minimal outlay. Often, real 'treasure' items can be found. For instance, a wind-up gramophone; a genuine Hornsby Double-O train set and a wonderfully constructed solid oak bureau.

Wide variety of household goods, including beds, bedding, kitchen goods, furniture, ornaments, pictures, suitcases,children’s toys, as well as clothing, shoes, bags,etc. All at very reasonable prices. Not very disabled friendly due to a step up into the shop and cluttered aisles in the warehouse, but excellent otherwise.

Barnardo's shop

6-7 Broad St, Ross-on-Wye HR9 7EA, UK – 01989 762400

Fantastic shop with a good range of things to buy! Friendly staff and a great cause.

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 Ross-on-Wye

No3 Restaurant

3 Gloucester Rd, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5BU, UK – 01989 564997

Had a very good lunch there today. I had the hake and my wife had the belly pork. Both were quite excellent being both beautifully cooked and we'll presented without being over-fussy. Wine was fine, a decent pinot grigio, though just a shade expensive by the glass. Very good cheeseboard to follow. Pleasant surroundings and friendly service completed the picture. The only thing missing was the small basket of sliced baguette that we had become used to during an extended stay in France - would be a nice little addition to an already very good lunch.would advise booking as the place got very busy!

Fantastic food, great service and atmosphere, just what Ross-on-Wye has been crying out for :-)

Wilton Court Hotel

Wilton Ln, Wilton, Ross-on-Wye HR9 6AQ, UK – 01989 562569

A superb stay. Everything was as we expected as we had been before. The food and service was first class and the staff very friendly. Our room was, coincidentally, the same one we had on our last visit and one we really like. We will be back next year for another holiday. Well done to you all.

We stayed a couple of days at the Wilton. The hotel has a lovely old world feel about it as well as being maintained to the highest standard. All the staff were very helpful, polite and attentive. The bedroom was cosy and spotless, I've never seen such a big bed. My partner is a coeliac and the restaurant had plenty of options and alternatives for her to choose from. We would definitely like to stay there again. Thank you for a lovely time.

Avellino Italian Restaurant

10 High St, Ross-on-Wye HR9 5HL, UK – 01989 769222

We visit regularly and love it here. The staff are friendly and efficient. We have all enjoyed the food here. Usually, we have the pizzas and have found them delicious. The last time we visited, I just mentioned that it was my daughter's birthday and they had taken the trouble to place a candle in the dessert and written happy birthday with a sauce on the plate.

Great atmosphere, fantastic food. Service a bit slow if in a hurry.
