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

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.

Barclays Bank

708 London Rd, Aylesford ME20 6BN, UK – 0345 734 5345

A great local branch and the staff are always helpful. However, parking is extremely limited, which makes visiting a painful experience.

Good bank

Cafbank

25 Kings Hill Ave, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4JQ, UK – 0300 012 3456

I've been using CAF bank for a charity I work with for 3 years. In that time I have never had a negative experience. Staff are always friendly and helpful.

More than happy with CAF Bank :)

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.

great staff really helpfull, after the bad experience i had at bexleyheath branch... west malling branch got me out of a pickle... im so grateful fantastic branch esp the 2 ladies that helped me out

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.

Lovely little church. My nephew has a fascination for church bells so as it was nearing 5pm we stopped to hear them and were delighted to find the church open. So we went in and I explained to him about the font, the lecture, the pews and prayer mats. It was wonderful, peaceful. We often pass it on our walks, always in time to strike the hour

Asda Kingshill Superstore

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

Low low prices. Staff are really helpful and chatty, they definitely helps lift the spirits when it's hailing frozen cats, dogs outside. The choice is good, but could be improved with a dedicated health foods isle (check out Morrisons if you don't know what I mean). It's clean, big (2 floors), well laid out and most importantly it has a splendid selection of salads to meet my work lunch needs.

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. Update: slightly miffed, Asda have removed most of their packet cuppa soup ranges to replace them with a one pot style soup. Retailers we aren’t silly 4 in a previous pack of soup compared to similar price 1 in a pot😡don’t go with the flow Asda stick with what’s best for your customers!

Mid Kent Vehicle Services

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

Great garage. You can trust them. They won't exaggerate what needs doing, and also very friendly. Highly recommend. CT, Wouldham.

I was booked in here for some Black Circles tyre replacements. But a week before the tyres were scheduled to be done, the car broke down. We had it dropped off here for repair (the suspension had gone). These guys repaired the car and managed to do the tyres well before the scheduled appointment. Really impressed. Very professional and friendly. I didn't get any grief for not knowing anything about cars which is rare at garages. Will use in future for everything now.

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

Brewers Fayre Castle Lake

Castle Way, Leybourne, West Malling ME19 5TR, UK – 01732 521630

Plenty of parking. Kids ate free. My burger was disappointingly over cooked. It is reasonably priced but food is not amazing. Old fashioned / dated decor. Kids soft play cost £3 per child which isn't brilliant value considering how small it is compared to ware them out on Tonbridge which is only £5. There were 2 members of staff supervising the play area but never the less there was a lot of pushing angles shoving and little regard or governance for simple safety rules on the slide for example. Over all our experience S two families totalling 4 adults and 3 kids was average. We probably wouldn't eat there again based on mediocre food quality.

Always friendly, accommodating staff. The restaurant caters to our large group bookings and food service more than acceptable and food tasty with plenty of choice ... especially the great quality breakfast.

Sino Restaurant

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

I've never ever had a bad meal here, staff are always lovely and friendly and the food is delicious. I particularly like the Sunday buffet deal and lunchtime special. Great place x

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.

Imperial Dynasty Restaurant

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

Excellent food & service ,good choice of drinks, modern decor. Immaculately clean. Food was hot & tasty, traditional Chinese with a few specials. Fairly priced too. Recommend booking as popular & busy

This is a clean beautiful restaurant. We ordered a big order and all the food was amazing. The food taste really good I would definitely recommend.
