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!

Banks

Lloyds Bank

716 London Rd, Larkfield, Aylesford, Maidstone ME20 6BL, UK – 0345 300 0000

No faults

Friendly bank

NatWest Bank

718 London Rd, Aylesford ME20 6AN, UK

Good customer service here, difficult parking most of the time though. Very helpful staff.

Handy local branch rather than having to go into Maidstone town centre. Popular as there has always been other customers on each of my visits. Staff have always been helpful, friendly and have assisted me in using the new self service machines. There is however, still the option of using the "human" cashier if you prefer. Good open plan layout and easy access for wheelchair users. Parking is on the road outside but has always been busy on my visits. There is a free car park at the rear with designated Natwest spaces.

Building Societies

Nationwide

69 High St, West Malling ME19 6NA, UK – 0800 554 0860

Its a building society which, as it's name suggests, has branches all over Kent, even on Sheppey. Being a bit of a nonconformist, I don't use it for a mortgage. Instead, I use it as a bank, as it has a very handy ATM.

Dental Surgeries

Kings Hill Dental

14, 10 Churchill Square, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4YU, UK – 01732 523500

I highly recommended this practice. Simon is great at calming any nerves you might have!

My husband and daughter were singing the praises of Simon's practice - I am a very nervous patient and hadn't been to a dentist for some years and my teeth were in a poor state. I decided to make an appointment with Simon and his kindness and expertise were outstanding. I have complete trust in his advice and can recommend this practice to anyone wanting a thoroughly professional and caring service. All my family would endorse this. Fiona Gillard - Jan 2012

Not a bad dentist

Great and friendly dentist and very helpful and polite team.

IQ Dental & Implant Centre

15 Queen St, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4DA, UK – 01732 522255

Thank you Sia for my lovely improved smile. The whole procedure took a while but is so worth it. I felt supported and informed at every step by the whole team. Lesley was a star, making sure I was comfortable after every appointment and had no questions or worries. I am so pleased I made the decision to commit to the treatment. Thank you all.

I simply can't thank Sia, Jo and Lesley enough. I required fairly extensive cosmetic work that took nearly 3 years from initial consultation. It was their personable and highly professional conduct throughout that made it a trouble and pain free experience. I now consider the team as friends and am happy to help relieve any concerns anybody has with regards to intrusive surgery such as implants. 5 star service in a beautifully modern and welcoming environment, just what's required if you aren't usually a fan of going to the dentist, one visit here and you soon will be.

The service here has been amazing. I fell ill on my way to gp and missed appointment but I was squeezed in. I dropped my prescription on the way out and they put it in the chemist for me. I was having a bad day but they were so helpful.

Find Recycling Centres

Asda Kingshill Superstore

1 Alexander Grove, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4SZ, UK – 01732 229000

What can I say, my local , my regular! Always a great price and buy at this store, there are sometimes during the week where they are more busier than others, for example Thursdays has local farm workers coming in en masse to buy their groceries which can get hectic. Clothing is always great on sizing and a regular change in styles, Homeware is brilliant with a diverse collection from modern to shabby chic.

Good place to shop early morning friendly helpful staff at checkout too much shelf filling at busy times.

Mid Kent Vehicle Services

Unit D17/Larkfield Trading Est/New Hythe Lane, Aylesford ME20 6SW, UK – 01622 794499

First time here with our camper for MOT. Really super friendly and helpful staff. Have now booked in for a major service, will continue to use and highly recommend to others in the future.

Helpful and good value for money. I have had vehicles serviced here to a high standard, and have also had tyres fitted for a good price, well worth seeking this place out, its a little tucked out of the way.

Sue Ryder Kings Hill

3 Liberty Square, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4AU, UK – 01732 843808

So convenient for parking, staff are always happy to help and engaging. They could really do with a larger store to display their items, some great finds at reasonable prices.

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 West Malling

The Hungry Guest

65 High St, West Malling ME19 6NA, UK – 01732 870766

Excellent cooked breakfast! Very fresh. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Friendly staff. Just dropped through on a work assignment and would head here every time going forward. Try it!

Popped in for a light lunch, which was very decent. Service slightly slow due to being a busy lunchtime, but staff friendly and courteous. Lovely dessert too. Recommended 👍

Sino Restaurant

10 Liberty Square, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4AU, UK – 01732 872888

A really nice restaurant, very good service and very good food. We went for a birthday and the staff really went above and beyond to make it special. They have a wide variety of food for everyone. We had two vegans in the group, one person who does like spicy food and a couple of people who don't like certain veg - so quite the problem group. But they accommodated well for everyone, taking the time to explain the foods to us. Will definitely visit again. The place itself is well spaced out so you don't have to listen to the table next to you talking. Very impressed.

Really nice food, probably best Chinese I've had. Bit more expensive that most Chinese restaurants/takeaways but it's worth it. Shame to see the food hygiene rating is 2/5 (Jan 2017), had I noticed this before visiting, I wouldn't have gone. But it was very clean inside and food was hot and tasted fresh. Glad we ordered and will order again soon. Maybe should have another visit for council to rate them again for food hygiene level.

Imperial Dynasty Restaurant

18-20 High St, West Malling ME19 6QR, UK – 01732 840402

The food was good but the service was aggressive. Although great if you are in a hurry. We were rushed in and out and our main arrived immediately after our starter. As one waiter walked away, another came with the mains. I was told they needed the table by 9 but we were out by 8. Shame, as previously I have enjoyed it. And they were much nicer with the groups. We both felt they wanted to get us out asap and even started resetting the table while we were finishing our wine. Maybe stick to a takeaway.

Lovely food.. Helpful staff.. Nice experience. Very busy on a Friday and Saturday so be warned. Worth it though 😀

Best leavers ever, limos, party, real guns for our end of year play that actually squirt! (We did bugsy malone) Could get into Skinners (very posh school) which is one of the best in England

It is a great school to go to. I now go to MGGS. This school is a great place to learn and does not tolerate bullies. I found it hard to leave all my friends that I had made and all of the lovely teachers there. A GREAT school to go to!
