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!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Tackley

Ovisher Indian Restaurant & Takeaway | Kidlington, Oxford

11 Oxford Rd, Kidlington OX5 2BP, UK – 01865 372827

We have been going to Ovisher Indian Takeaway in Kidlington as a special treat for a number of years now. The staff are always very friendly, the restaurant is always clean and atmospheric, and the food is just delicious! Try a banquet night on a Tuesday it's superb value for money and a lovely evening out. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Good service, menu good too even if there were too few king prawns on the plate! Better value for money than Gurkha but recommend Ovisher to anyone

Tiffins Tandoori Restaurant

63 High St, Kidlington OX5 2DN, UK – 01865 372245

Really good Indian Restaurant in the village that maintains very decent standards in regard to food and service.

Quite small but always good service

The Jolly Boatman

216 Banbury Road, Thrupp, Kidlington OX5 1JU, UK – 01865 377800

Couldn't fault the food, was absolutely delicious. What let it down was the time it took to receive our food. Was a little disappointed to see people get the food before us when they arrived and ordered after us. They give the kids theirs early after we asked for it. The food when it was brought to us was presented well. Wasn't overly impressed by the cleanliness of the pub restaurant, there was rubbish on the floor and the glasses were a little dirty. There was plenty of places to sit as there was seating by the bar, in the separate restaurant and outside. There was lovely views of the canal.

We enjoyed a very nice carvery yesterday . Beautifully cooked, good choice of vegetables. Service was fine. One problem the food was not hot enough. Luke warm. They kindly microwaved ours and we were happy. Either the carvery unit is not working correctly or the lack of lids on the food was to blame. Would go back but try early lunchtime rather than mid afternoon.

LVS Oxford School

Spring Hill Rd, Begbroke OX5 1RX, UK – 01865 595170

LVS Oxford provides a caring, nurturing environment and since starting there the effect the school has had on my son has been incredible. He is much happier, calmer and relaxed. The school is very well lead with a very strong, knowledgeable Deputy also and over the last year has gone from strength to strength. They have arranged some amazing events for the young people and It has been a privilege to attend...... The official opening by the Countess of Wessex was wonderful for the students and sports day was the most inclusive I have ever attended with them all working together. Celebration assembly was also such a fantastic, yet moving event, witnessing all the achievements, especially Ben receiving his wonderful achievement trophy! Thank you so much to each and everyone of the passionate, dedicated staff. I can highly recommend this school, so much so, we have named LVS Oxford for our other Son next year!

LVS Oxford is a leading school for young people on the Autism spectrum. The team of teachers, TA's and therapists make this an amazing place for young people on the spectrum to learn new skills confidence and have an opportunity to shine. My son has been a pupil for the last 2 years and the change in him is remarkable. From a lonely isolated child, the school and its team have helped him turn into a confident young man. A warm, welcoming school with a lot to offer Autistic students.
