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 Co-op Bank - Darlington

2B Duke St, Darlington DL3 7AG, UK – 01325 480002

The staff at Darlington branch are outstanding and are the reason I continue to bank with the Co-op. Their level of customer service is a marker for us all to try to measure up to.

I have been with the Cooperative Bank for over 20 years, They are second to none. The Darlington Branch in particular has always offered a first class service.

NatWest Bank

Local Chambers of Commerce for DL1 1ET. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Darlington Borough Council (Town Hall)

Town Hall, Feethams, Darlington DL1 5QT, UK – 01325 405000

Waited for almost 20 mins for someone to answer the phone, is this acceptable from a government agency, I don`t think so....but once I got through a very helpful and efficient service from the staff I had conversations with.

Slow service

Town Hall

Feethams, Darlington DL1 5QT, UK – 01325 405000

Some people don't like the architecture of this place but I find it functional and suitable for a civic building. It is also very convenient to have the town hall right in the centre of town and easily accessible by foot or by public transport. I have always found the front desk staff to be very pleasant, efficient and helpful.

Strange building. Very tired looking on the out but quite modern inside.

I cannot praise him enough, absolutely 100% 5 star. Thank you so much Andy

Drinkfield Civic Amenities Site

Mewburn Rd, Darlington DL3 0RG, UK

The guys are really helpful and polite

On approach to the DCAS you are immediately aware of the amazing ambience and look of the place-sweeping vistas are all around you: Particularily of note are the bird and wildlife sanctuary on the northern perimeter of the site (protected from wind blow by high netting).On the south side are more industrial areas selling a variety of trade and non trade premises. The staff on site are efficient and work in a very professional manner. The layout of the site is excellent and consists a number of large industrial size containers in which you can dispose most items. I was thrilled to visit and can't praise the site enough

Well after reading the previous reviews I thought it was a long shot and I had low expectations of what was to come. The location and price was what persuaded us to try. So pleased we did! Staff are welcoming and polite, tables clean, food was well presented, plenty of choice and to me most important all the food was hot! It would appear they have been taking note of the last few reviews. Highly recomend If they going to keep up this standard :-) Well back again 4 months later and pleased to say the food is delicious , really enjoyed it again and value for money can't be beaten!
