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!

Dental Surgeries

mydentist, okehampton

6 Station Rd, England, Okehampton EX20 1DZ, UK – 01837 52745

It is not the best ever but it is certainly above average. Receptionists very friendly.

A very well managed practice with friendly, courteous staff. The standard of dental treatment itself is of the highest quality - I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Okehampton Medical Centre

East St, Okehampton EX20 1AY, UK – 01837 52233

An excellent medical centre. Somehow (despite worsening funding pressures and an increasing population combined with an excessive number of over-entitled individuals within the population who expect an expensive private service without paying a penny in either medical fees or taxes) the practice has somehow managed to adapt and to cope and continue to offer safe care. To any who feel aggrieved by the medical centre, why not register at a different practice and see whether your issues have any genuine value (you will certainly find identical problems at every medical centre) or even write to your MP to try and create the political changes which are required for a better service to be offered.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Okehampton

2 Rivers Restaurant

16 Fore St, Okehampton EX20 1AN, UK – 01837 52981

If you are looking for somewhere new, I highly recommend 2Rivers. We ordered a small Sunday roast and it was lovely, so glad I never ordered the medium or large as the quantity of food was much more than I expected. Will definitely go again 🙂

We enjoyed our meal very much, the food was fantastic. Booking was very easy and looks like it is recommended as it was busy, making it a nice atmosphere. The only fault was that the service was very slow, we didn't get our starters until an hour after we walked in the door. We would go back but maybe arrive a bit earlier.


37 Fore St, Okehampton EX20 1HB, UK – 01837 318030

The only takeaway I've every felt like a guest in a 5* hotel! Comfy seating and free Coke while waiting, very polite and helpful and funking delicious takeaway! Top notch!

Best Indian takeaway we've had yet from Okehampton, really tasty, nice temperature, good amount of spice and flavour. The meat was plentiful too. I would recommend.


Bridge House, 25 Fore St, Okehampton EX20 1DL, UK – 01837 659766

Love the food. Can't complain about the price for the quality. Staff is always nice to us and when you are a regular client they will take care of you (offering food so that you can try). Happy with all.

Gorgeous food and fantastic value with their Thursday night meal deal.
