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!

Barclays Bank

12 Front St, Consett DH8 5AH, UK – 0345 734 5345

Staff are friendly, kind and supportive - 5 stars for them. Waiting times can drag on during busy times (over 15 minutes) and not much of a design for people waiting, so customers tend to make a diagonal line across the room rather than (if there were those poles with the rope across) snaking up, along, up, along etc. There are no pay in slips you just hand over the cash and if you don't have your card you'll have to call out your personal information which I'm not a fan of, there is no other way to deposit cash other than to queue up (unlike say, Northallerton where you can deposit straight into a machine) it seems a little strange that you can use the machine (which is a nice touch) for most banking services e.g. printing statements, but you can't deposit cash - I think that would cut waiting times dramatically but maybe there's a cost involved.

Banked with Barclays all my life. The staff in this branch are always extremely helpful and friendly.

Food excellent service second to none. But expensive for what we actually got. Plus they didn't put our names in the book, so consequently we were put at a table round the corner next to a radiator. It was bloody warm.

The food was incredible as always there, the service unbeatable and it's our favourite place to go for special occasions with good reason. Hannah was brilliant. Friendly, fun, relaxed, chatty and nothing was too much trouble...she's an asset to the place and makes a great visit into an outstanding one! :) Thank you all.

Amazing food. Quick service. Great size portions. I will be back.... Right after I pass this pulled beef.
