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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Newby Bridge

L'al Churrasco

25 Market St, Ulverston LA12 7LR, UK – 01229 343160

The food here is out of this world. I've been here a couple of times and both times I've been blown away by the food I'd ordered. The staff were lovely and went above and beyond when I made any sort of request. It's quite difficult to get reservations (it's a popular place) so make sure you book well in advance. The new bar is also very cool- aesthetically pleasing without being pretentious.

Absolutely brilliant food! Service is also great all different elements of the food is explained and drinks are brought to you with not a very long wait considering the small bar. The timing between each meal is a perfect wait to let your previous board settle. Lovely environment would definitely go again.
