Banks

Barclays Bank

Marcham Road, Abingdon OX14 1UB, UK – 0345 734 5345

Helpful and friendly.

Marcham Post Office & Stores

16 North St, Marcham, Abingdon OX13 6NG, UK – 01865 391940

A convenient shop with everything one needs to survive the village. I have however experienced great difficulty in obtaining a map of the area (a bigger area). Most of the maps seem to be only of the local area, the surrounding areas being labelled as "the mountains".

Fantastic local store, friendly helpful staff. Lucky to have such a good facility in the village.

A. D. Maclean Tree Management

Kingston Rd, Abingdon OX13 5NX, UK – 01865 391859

Andrew and his team completed an excellent job in our garden today. They removed a cedar tree and reduced the crown of an oak by 20% - they were extremely efficient, tidy, polite and courteous. We were thrilled with the job. The price was very good value for the work involved. The whole work area was left very tidy. I would not hesitate to recommend.

We hired Andrew to remove an Atlantic Cedar. He and his lads did a great job. They were courteous, friendly, efficient and tidied up brilliantly afterwards. I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending their services.

Building Societies

Ashby Precision Engineering Ltd

31 Nuffield Way, Abingdon OX14 1RL, UK – 01235 531279

Local Chambers of Commerce for OX13 6JB. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Denman College

New Rd, Marcham, Abingdon OX13 6NW, UK – 01865 391991

Have been tutoring at Denman for over 20 years and it is still a charming environment to learn and teach

With some trepidation I took my husband along . We are octogenarians, so leaving him behind presented more problems than taking him! He loved it! From the moment he got there he enjoyed it . (He likes the company of women) So now we make several trips each year and have done all sorts of courses together. This has greatly enriched our life together.

Oxford Abingdon Hotel

Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1TZ, UK – 01235 553456

Polite staff. Providing free breakfast because the hotel is having building work done. It's not the most modern of places at the moment. It's becoming a Hilton. Its clean and located fantastically for many of the parks in Oxfordshire.

The hotel was pretty old and work down but clean and everything was functional. It did state that major renovations would be starting the following weekend and the concept looked impressive. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were a reasonable size, would have thought breakfast should been included in the price but then again it's in the Oxford area.

Gigaclear

Windrush Court, Blacklands Way, Abingdon OX14 1SY, UK – 01865 591100

We have been Gigaclear customers for over a year and have been both impressed and happy with the service they have provided to both ourselves and our village. We know that Gigaclear have been undertaking a huge challenge bringing fibre to the homes of many Cotswold villagers. It is little surprise that we have experienced a small number of outages. However these have proved to be few and far between and with increasingly better communication about such outages, and their cause, when they happen or are planned to happen. We have absolutely no desire to return to BT's ADSL offering! Keep up the good work.

Gigaclear after a year of postponements have just pulled out of all Worcestershire projects, as it is no longer commercially viable. Edited review after speaking to Keith who explained the difficulties with WCC compared to other counties. Gigaclear clearly have decent people in most areas of their business, if these people were more accessible it would benefit their reputation considerably.

Thank you for seeing me so quickly at a busy time. And thank you to the staff who gave a thorough, caring and positive review of my situation and got me the treatment that I needed. I can't say I would recommend it as a place to visit, because I hope that no one needs to go to hospital at all, but if you have a medical problem and a choice, thus is a good place to go.

Very friendly staff, efficient service and very easy to get to. It also offers 30 minutes free parking which is very useful when attending the Minor Injuries Unit.

A&D Instruments Ltd

Business Park Abingdon, 24-26 Blacklands Way, Abingdon OX14 1DY, UK – 01235 550420

Having previously had A & D Models I needed a new Upper Arm Pressure Monitor, which arrived today. A problem was found so I contacted the Abingdon Office. From first speaking to a very efficient lady on the switchboard I was transferred to the Tecnical Department. I was then taken through a series of tests to ensure the problem still existed. When these were comleted I was assured a replacement would be sent as a replacement, a similar model tested and found to have no problems. I was then told that I would get a call the next day to say it had been despatched and there would be a further call the next day to check it had been delived. All this within an hour of my first contact.. Brilliant

Capacious beer garden and good food. Staff very friendly and attentive.

Dog House

Faringdon Rd, Abingdon OX13 6QJ, UK – 01865 390830

Beautiful restaurant with lovely atmosphere. Food was good. Staff were very rude and inattentive. Had to ask a few times for dessert menus and to get drinks. Kids food arrived piping hot so it had to be left for a good ten minutes to cool down. I would come back as it was a good family restaurant but would hope the staff were different.

Nice hotel to stay for a couple of days. Personnel was very friendly. Rooms were clean, food was good. We had a room which had been smoked in though, but we got an other room immediately.

Good, tasty food. Free parking on site. Friendly staff 😎

Farm House Restaurant

Garford, Abingdon OX13 5HB, UK – 01865 391169

Shame that we cannot have breakfast till noon. Also, it is too expensive: £11.95 for a plate of potatoes and cauliflower with beef meat. The coffee was great though.

Been here a few times. Great for a cup of coffee and a cake. But I wouldn't recommend it for a meal. The food is a bit too expensive for what you get.

The White Hart at Fyfield

Main Rd, Fyfield, Abingdon OX13 5LW, UK – 01865 390585

This is a super pub! Excellent food, (what's better than excellent?) Super service the staff made us so welcome and really made a special evening for our wedding anniversary.e

Good atmosphere and excellent service. The only failing was that they did not provide snacks at lunch time but they accommodated us by splitting a 2 course meal.
