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

Extremely helpful friendly staff who go the extra mile.

The Royal Bank of Scotland

35 Bank St, Galashiels TD1 1EP, UK – 0345 724 2424

Previously this would have been a much higher score, however, I absolutely hate the new approach this store has taken to banking. To my knowledge it is a similar concept throughout banking now but it is simply awful. There are now only ever a maximum of two human tellers at any one time. Including the busiest time of the day, when all the local business owners are trying to sort things before opening up. Everyone is expected to use the machines on the wall to make any deposits or withdrawals. However, currently there is only one of the three machines actually working. When I asked what would happen if the amount the machine says I have and the amount I think I have are different, I was told by the reception advisor that I would have to ask for help. I fail to see how this new system is of benefit when 66% of the machines do not work, and they need support by a paid worker when things go wrong anyway. Should have just stayed as you were, royal bank of Scotland. On the bright side, the staff are friendly as a majority. Just a shame about the rise of the machines!

Essenside Dr, Tweedbank, Galashiels TD1 3RT, UK – 07842 088304

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.

Find Recycling Centres

Thomson S & I

Mill Park, Galashiels TD1 2HD, UK – 01896 753681

Thank goodness places like this still exist. They have a huge stock of parts that they have removed from vehicles. I needed a part for a 26 year old vehicle. The dealer wanted over £200 for a new part. I got one from S & I Thomson which was for a different vehicle, but it will be easy to adapt for my purpose. It cost me only £3. I am obviously delighted.

If you need any second hand spare parts for your car this is one of the best places to go in the Scottish Borders. Prices are not to bad.

Zaika Tandoori

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

Excellent, such a high quality tasty meal. Even our young daughters loved it. Great service, it is BYO and no alcohol is served on site which we didn’t realise. The staff advised the nearest location to buy some beer, which we nipped out to buy. So accommodating. I cannot recommend highly enough how clean, professional and authentic this restaurant is. What a gem to have in Gala! Go and try it you will not regret it!

The best Indian food I ever had. Very clean, professional and the service was quick and friendly and very helpful. Also had the most delicious capuchino.

Shish Restaurant Ltd

51 Market St, Galashiels TD1 3AF, UK – 01896 758735

Nice Indian restaurant. The good is good, could be a bit spicier but that is my personal predisposition. Tuesdays and Thursdays is buffet night for 14 pounds/person. If you are close to this place and want an Indian dinner you certainly cannot go wrong here.

Best Currys around when you come up North. And if you got a sweet tooth, try their Peshwari Naan guys

Eat At Dave's

Galashiels Academy

Elm Row, Galashiels TD1 3HU, UK – 01896 754788

There is often a lot of bad press about this academy. However, it should be noted that currently this is quite a "normal" thing for high schools and academy's across the country. I have not studied at this academy but I have two younger brothers, one who did and who still is. Their feedback about the school is never overly enthusiastic but they are teenagers so what do you expect I suppose?! The facilities seem to be quite good without quite outdated now so it could certainly do with some updating and upgrading.
