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.

Fantastic church. Family friendly

St Mary's Catholic Church

Victoria Rd, Ulverston LA12 0BY, UK – 01229 582205

Grace Baptist Church

40 Quebec St, Ulverston LA12 9AD, UK

I can highly recommend coming to this church. The pastor (Steve Wood) and the rest of the elders and deacons always give you a warm welcome, the sermons are easy to understand (they use the New King James Version of The Bible, and Praise! hymnbook) and the hymns are played traditionally with piano accompaniment. They have a loop system for hearing aid users, and provide tea and coffee after the services. There are also children's meetings on Wednesday evenings during school term times, and a ladies' group on the first Friday of each month.

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.

The Bay Horse Hotel & Restaurant

Canal Foot, Ulverston LA12 9EL, UK – 01229 583972

Excellent food and service in their restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The breakfast which was included with our room was good, though not remarkable, but their poached eggs were near perfect. Lunch time was very busy and the Irish Corn Beef was good, but almost too big for a "light" meal. Dinner is definitely their forte and all three evenings that we ate there was excellent and if there was anything to complain about, it was that the portions were too generous. Starting the second night we skipped the appetizers and desserts for just espresso and chocolate. The steak was one of the best we've had in a long time. We ate there three nights in a row because breakfast and dinner was included in our hotel package and it was well worth it.

The food here is absolutely out of this world. The prices reflect this, don't expect cheap pub grub, it's truly an experience and well worth the menu prices. One of the best meals I have ever eaten with a beautiful view onto the sand flats at sundown.


13 Queen St, Ulverston LA12 7AF, UK – 01229 583961

Lovely spot. Food delish. Wine perfect. Not cheap, but worth it. Will visit again.

My son's favourite place to eat, friendly staff, good food, reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere. Pizzas are thin crust and tasty. Pastas are traditional Italian dishes. Specials we have tried have all been very tasty. Early bird menu before 6pm. Children made to feel welcome.
