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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Stroud General Hospital

Trinity Rd, Stroud GL5 2HY, UK – 0300 421 8080

My Mother, aged 93, was admitted following a fall. She was treated exceptionally well from the minute she went through the door to the morning I took her home 10 days later. The assessment, medical treatment, physio and even homecare review were all faultless. What really impressed me was the genuine level of interest in her progress and wellbeing, and the considerate nature of the staff. Everyone from ward sister down were professional and caring. She fell in her house but fell on her feet when she was lucky enough to go to Stroud hospital.

Excellent service. Lovely staff, efficient and kind. In particular the triage nurse and emergency nurse practitioner

Stroud Maternity Hospital

Field Road, Stroud GL5 2JB, UK – 0300 421 8018

I was born here. My mum told me it was the place to go when delivering a child or a new life. She said it was the best place around. My 3 sisters have now all given birth to their children here too. It's still known for being the best in the area.

Very good staff. They are so reliable and very helpful. I was unfortunate to have a midwife that was useless but I was able to change midwife's very quickly.

Sterling Storage Solutions Limited

Wicliffe Industrial Estate, Chestnut Lane, Stroud GL5 3EN, UK – 01453 757599

We just moved the stuff we have in storage from another company to Sterling and are saving ยฃ40 a month. The main thing about Sterling, though, is how friendly and helpful they are. Everyone we've dealt with has been brilliant. They're a small enough business that you feel you're dealing with human beings who understand what you need, not a "one size fits all" big chain. They're also very efficient. We got everything we needed sorted out quickly with no fuss. Highly recommended.

It was great to have someone so close when we needed storage at short notice and at a low price. The choice of storage was great, met all of our requirements and were very clean. Friendly staff, I would recommend to anyone and would use again should the need arise in the future.

Stroud District Council

Ebley Mill, Westward Rd, Ebley, Stroud GL5 4UB, UK – 01453 766321

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 Stroud

Bisley House Bar & Restaurant

Middle St, Stroud GL5 1DZ, UK – 01453 751328

Good quality food well cooked (apart from my steak which was well done despite asking for medium). Nice selection of local art for sale on the walls..

Fantastic food. Wirh attentive service . Great wine list

Jrool Bistro

12 Union St, Stroud GL5 2HE, UK – 01453 767123

We first stumbled across this restaurant during the fringe festival back in August when we moved here. We liked it so much, we went back on the second day. We've been back to visit a couple of times since and everything is as perfect as it was then. The customer service is always outstanding, the food is super scrummy, we just wish you were open more often! Thank you for your amazing hospitality and super tasty food!

Good Friday, French evening. Outstanding food,service and ambiance. Could not recommended it highly enough. A perfect evening.

Sorrento Restaurante & Pizzeria

Russell St, Stroud GL5 3AJ, UK – 01453 766632

Excellent food and great service. Tried the mozzarella in carrossa tonight, absolutely perfect, and the pizza Americana was lovely, with a crisp thin base and plenty of toppings. The semi freddo was a perfect dessert too.

Fabulous food and service. Really looked after us all - definitely will be back

Nursery and Preschools

Curious Caterpillars Day Nursery

Downfield Lodge, Downfield Rd, Stroud GL5 4HL, UK – 01453 750957

A lovely nursery. Staff are caring and enthusiastic about all the activities they do with the children. My son has been there for over a year now and he absolutely loves going to nursery which really helps. He does so many different things during the day and enjoys the lovely outdoor space too. The communication with home through their books is brilliant and gives you an insight into their day. I really recommend Curious Caterpillars.

My daughter attends this Nursery. She cannot wait to go each day, which is a relief. The staff are incredible, and go out of their way to make her feel secure and happy here. The communication between the staff and parents is good. My daughter is currently transitioning rooms, and this process has been happening at her pace and all seems to be going smoothly so far. My only niggle is traffic at drop off can be a bit difficult, but we knew that would be the case - and makes school holidays an extra easy drop off treat!! We are very glad to have found curious caterpillars after looking at a variety of other local childcare options.

Seasons

Stroud Cricket Pavilion,, Stratford Road, Stroud GL5 4EL, UK – 01453 767004

Our 2 children have been going to Season's nursery from a young age. They are now almost 4 and almost 2. They thoroughly enjoy going to Seasons and have thrived there. There is a lovely balance of free play as well as learning. The staff are fantastic, very supportive, always listen and seem to really know and understand our children well. Bridget, the manager, is always happy to try and accommodate our needs wherever possible. We would definitely recommend this nursery to others because our children are so happy there. Thank you to all of the staff for their ongoing care and support towards our children.

Seasons have been looking after my son for the last year, since he was 9 months old. They offer fantastic facilities and the staff have a great work ethic and understanding of the children they care for. They encourage the children to play outside whenever possible and create a very safe environment that allows the children to learn by doing different activities. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery!

Stroud High School

Beard's Ln, Stroud GL5 4HF, UK – 01453 764441

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 45 Year 7 pupils at Stroud High School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested - plus I was brought very welcome refreshment on a very hot day. The afternoon was well organised with the group arriving on time. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, flying through the rings of Saturn, travelling to the Galapagos with Charles Darwin and pondering the question why we find Nature and the Universe so beautiful. Thank you Stroud High School for a very pleasant visit.

It is a nice and friendly school, but the canteen is incredibly pricey, leaving me broke, and normally not having any lunch

Archway School
