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!

Having attended Hope Church on a number of occasions in the last 2 years I have been thoroughly impressed with the whole set up. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It seems to just be getting bigger and better and now with the new Hope Central in Galashiels it provides a lovely drop in facility to pop in at anytime during the day to have a coffee and a chat and find people that are available to talk and generally be there to listen. What a wonderful set up. Well done Hope Church.

We have been attending Hope Church weekly for the last ten months and what a joyful, faith strengthening experience this has been. Solid Bible teaching and uplifting worship is the norm. Hope has a very strong, warm and committed Church family with an eagerness to serve others and it is a joy to be part of it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Galashiels

Herges on the Loch

1 Tweedbank Dr, Tweedbank, Galashiels TD1 3RP, UK – 01896 759909

Five of us met here for dinner on a Monday evening. There were only a handful of other tables occupied which didn't add much to the ambiance - but I suspect that later in the week it will probably be buzzing. The service was very good and at an appropriate level. Our shared starter was a small cheese pizza which was slightly over salted for my taste. I had fish and chips which was served in a generous portion - indeed there was more than I could manage. It was marginally over cooked however. When the bill arrived it wasn't too expensive, in fact I would rate it as good value. The reasons for the 4 stars? We had a perfectly pleasant evening, but the food was not excellent. Nevertheless, I would still recommend that you give Herges a try.

Nice views of the loch. Food simple, reasonable price. Staff very friendly.

Gala Tandoori Indian Restaurant

84-86 High St, Galashiels TD1 1SQ, UK – 01896 758066

Geat curry! Staff are friendly and reasonably priced. I come to Gala just for the curry better than most places in Edinburgh.

Excellent food. Very tasty especially king prawn biryani.

Zaika Tandoori

36 Market St, Galashiels TD1 3AA, UK – 01896 208188

Delicious food. Had takeaway tonight but would happily eat in restaurant another time but will definitely go back again. Friendly staff too & generous portions. ☺

I have no idea how my initial review was marked as one star - I had given it 5 stars ! The Zaika Tandoori is a fabulous restaurant, lovely tasty food and friendly,helpful staff. Apologies for any confusion.
