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!

TSB Bank

3 Arundel St, Portsmouth PO1 1NB, UK – 023 9281 9351

The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly.

Staff very friendly and helpful at Portsmouth branch, I have banked there for two years. Competitively priced in-built overdraft facility with Classic Plus account 5% (tax free) interest on first £2000 credit balance and up to £5 cashback per month on contactless visa debit card transactions until December 2016 (payable one month in arrears). As well as staff being helpful and having good product knowledge, they are chatty and enjoy a good joke with customers. Best financial institution I have ever banked with. I would recommend my branch (and TSB in general) to anyone.

Dr Pritesh Bhatt is the only dentist I trust. I no longer live in Portsmouth but travel to this dentist because of him. He is honest and I have never had any treatment which I felt was unnecsessary.

Fantastic dental practise, polite ladies on reception and the dentists and hygienist are thorough and very good at the jobs they do. I am really happy to be with this dental surgery.

Trafalgar Medical Group Practice

25 Osborne Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3LR, UK – 023 9282 1371

Over the last few months myself, my daughter and my grandson have all received excellent service from doctors and staff at both Eastney and Osbourne surgeries. In particular, quick action by Dr Singh meant that my grandson received excellent and timely treatment for his perforated appendix at QA.

Guildhall Walk Healthcare Centre

27 Guildhall Walk, Portsmouth PO1 2RY, UK – 023 9275 1006

Myself and my 3 children have been registered patients here pretty much since they opened. Have always been treated well by all staff. The receptionists have always been extremely helpful (apart from 1 and she’s now left). Have never felt rushed when seeing a doctor and always felt like they have listened. Sometimes the waiting time can be a bit long but I have also been one of the patients that have walked straight in and seen a doctor. Very happy with this surgery and definitely won’t be moving.

Lake Road Practice

Lake Road Health Centre, Nutfield Pl, Portsmouth PO1 4JT, UK – 023 9200 9117

So glad to have changed doctors surgery to here. Finally a doctor who listens to me and a receptionist who doesn't think she's god!!!. Thank you

My first ever appointment there changing GP's and I was offered an appointment 18:30 that goes great with my working hours. Even better they have me a call at around 17:15 to say that had a cancellation so if I wanted to come down earlier I could and pop in when ever. Usually I had issues with previous GP's for the exact reason I popped down for and he was willing to help out right away and didn't have a load of silly questions about it. Happily put my back on my repeat prescription. No complaints about my first visit to the practice.

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.

Portsmouth Seventh Day Adventist Church

131A Chichester Rd, Portsmouth PO2 0AQ, UK

We visited this church from Essex. Enjoyed an amazing interactive youth day last Sabbath. The theme was reckless love. There was lovely singing, numerous musicians playing together, group prayer for the youths. May God bless the youths of this church as they place their hands in His arms as He lead them to all-around success. Let no man despise tour youth. Stand strong and brave for Jesus and seek first the kingdom of Heaven and all other things will be added unto you. We we catered for with sweet fellowship and lunch at the Joseph's residence. A lovely couple with a handsome prince called Joshua. Glory to God for His children all around the world. Weeping may endure for r a night but joy comes in the morning.

I love this church 😍

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Portsmouth

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill Restaurant

2 Vulcan Buildings, Portsmouth PO1 3BF, UK – 023 9277 8060

Hi, my wife, our good friend and myself came to the Restaurant yesterday at around 1645. It was my 70th birthday treat. My wife and myself haven't been back to the Restaurant for two years or so. We used to enjoy our regular visits and my wife had many business lunches there. My wife thought that this would be an ideal place for us. I was looking forward to it.... Well, we were so disappointed with the quality and quantity of the food. This complaint is not a reflection on the Restaurant staff. I spent 50 years in the Catering business. So l have a wide breadth of experience at all levels. I am not now going into detail. I the company is interested l am willing to elaborate..

Great fresh fish cooked on site. There are plenty of non fish dishes and vegetarian option, so everyone should be happy. I go there normally on Sunday mornings for a dozen fresh oysters for breakfast👍

Brasserie Blanc

1 Gunwharf Rd, Portsmouth PO1 3FR, UK – 023 9289 1320

Lovely food and service. Herself and I have a Americano coffee before we go to look about a seat in the restaurant. We have yet to have a bad meal.

I have been here multiple times. I always go for the steak here which is great for most of the time (mostly at dinner, at lunch time steaks don’t come out as good, probably different chefs?). Although, they have changed their sides menu a while back, which I believe the previous ones were better, I do still recommend this restaurant and my overall experience was a positive one. I will be returning soon!

Agora Restaurant

9 Clarendon Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 2ED, UK – 023 9282 2617

Brilliant atmosphere, food and staff. Very accommodating, were happy to change dish i didn't enjoy the taste of with no fuss. No complaints about the food itself, dish just wasn't to my tasted. Thoroughly recommend.

We had a party of 15 people at this restaurant and still the service was outstanding. Very fast and welcoming. Food was hot and delicious and generous portion sizes.

Fantastic school in the heart of Southsea. We have three children in the school and all are extremely happy with the education that they're receiving.


Milton Park Primary School

Eastney Rd, Portsmouth PO4 8ET, UK – 023 9273 3792

My son love this school! The teachers are very kindly, direct and attentive.

A really good school with a focus firmly on The kids. They are not fancy but the head teacher and team obviously have a very good handle on things. I had reservations before enrolling my child to the school, but they have all been resolved and my mind put at rest. 1 year in I am so far very pleased with the results.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Portsmouth High School (GDST)

25 Kent Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3EQ, UK – 023 9282 6714

Our involvement with PHS goes back 11 years during which time all three of our daughters have attended. I can honestly say that the school is first class and has offered my girls fantastic opportunities. We were attracted to the small class sizes which means girls receive more attention than they would elsewhere. An all girl school means they don't have the added distraction of a mixed environment. Our girls have been very happy and formed long lasting friendships and to top it off exam results are best in the area - what more could you ask for.

Both of my daughters have been at the school since nursery (now Y7 and 10) and I wouldn't consider any other school for them. It us a calm and caring environment that makes it a unique place to learn.
