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

208-210 High St, Chatham ME4 4AP, UK – 01634 699998

I rang for a bit of advice and the representative was quite defensive and talked over me when my call was not a criticism. Perhaps need to work on their telephone manners

Always friendly good banking service where you talk to a person not a machine

The Co-op Bank - Chatham

26 Military Rd, Chatham ME4 4JX, UK – 01634 840344

The cooperative bank branch in Chatham is so customer friendly and the staff very helpfull. We have been with them since we moved to Medway in 1970 and hope that this is not a branch registered for closure.

if it wasn't for the staff at chatham,i would leave co-op

NatWest Bank

148 High St, Chatham ME4 4DB, UK – 0345 788 8444

Great service- but only 2 cashier desks... meaning always 15/20min wait in queue.

good polite branch

Yorkshire Building Society

130-132 High St, Chatham ME4 4BY, UK – 01634 817378

Local Chambers of Commerce for ME2 3BQ. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Dental Surgeries

Crown Court Clinic

203 High St, Rochester ME1 1HB, UK – 01634 840303

Took my nervous son to have his broken front tooth to be filled. He was in tears, screaming and fighting and was adamant he wouldn't have it done. All the staff were so patient and good with him. They explained the alternatives would be another trip to Crown Court Clinic at a later date or the Hospital. They showed him where it would be done and explained the whole procedure to him. He eventually went through with it and has now got his great smile back. A big thank you to everyone at Crown Court Clinic.

I was so nervous, I had my tooth out under sedation and I truly didn't feel a thing, it was brilliant and the staff have all been friendly and lovely, they made me feel comfortable and we're reassuring, thank you all

New Road Dental Practice

3A New Rd, Rochester ME1 1BD, UK – 01634 845286

The Rochester Orthodontic Centre

Cypress House, 227 Frindsbury Hill, Wainscott, Rochester ME2 4JS, UK – 01634 710105

After I took my braces of everything was great. The following day I went in to claim my retainers and they managed to 'misplace' them and my molds. So they redid my molds only for them to be a little crooked and then give my retainers again the following day. Then they told me to wear it everyday I asked how long and they said everyday forever. It's been 1 and a half years. And only recently I've left it on holiday meaning my teeth are getting crooked I have tried getting it sent and it's been a month. I hope I can get new retainers.

Lovely staff,quick professional job on my daughters teeth,she's over the moon ..can't praise this place enough

St Mary's Medical Centre

Vicarage Rd, Rochester ME2 4DG, UK – 01634 291299

Not overly helpfull, could do with a revamp

The Gun Lane Medical Centre

Gun Ln, Rochester ME2 4UW, UK – 01634 727888

Difficult to get an appointment at times. Most gp's are okay there. One gp Dr ray is great but only works there for 2 days a week. Could use a refurb, looking very dated and a bit untidy around the edges

Excellent surgery ...I have had no problems getting a appointment and medication ..keep it up !

Bryant Street Medical Centre

29 Bryant St, Chatham ME4 5QS, UK – 01634 848911

I have been with this practice for only a few months. So far it has been very good. The only suggestion would be to update waiting area and reception. It is quite old fashioned and dreary. Getting appointments has been good and referrals when neccesary excellent.

Long established doctors' surgery

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.

Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Gym

Medway Valley Leisure Park, Chariot Way, Rochester ME2 2SS, UK – 01634 292900

A great gym with very pleasant members of staff, well equipped and clean. Pleasant environment to exercise in. Great swim, sauna and steam facilities also. Worth the membership fee, and is better than other more expensive gyms as well.

I've been a member of 30+ gyms worldwide, many of which are in the UK. The facilities, equipment and staff here are first class. I see lots of whiners giving feedback, I have to wonder what they are comparing too ... this place is half the price of a David Lloyd and without any of the attitude you get there. Great cafe, high quality food that's health focused at reasonable prices . Kids club for the little ones is amazing.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Rochester


139 High St, Rochester ME2 4TJ, UK – 01634 711311

We have been going here for the last 5 years and both the food and the service are consistently good. They offer a good range of Thai favourites to suit most palates - but if you like spicey and you like seafood try the Hoy Choaladda - mussels with chilli and garlic sauce. Superb!

Best Thai in Medway by far. Good value as well.

Hungry Eye Indian Restaurant
