2 Yorkshire St, Rochdale OL16 1EE, UK – 0345 740 4404

Located in the centre of Rochdale next to the newly opened river Roch. I've banked here since it was the Midland Bank in the 1980's. The Rochdale branch has a great team that provide excellent service each time I visit. It would be good if they had more staff, rather than deposit and cash machines. 5 out of 5...

This is my local branch. I have never had a problem to see someone, and always had an issue resolved the very same day, with the exception of mortgage advice and things like this, but that can easily be booked for the next day. Everything is easy to use, and if you do happen to struggle with anything, the staff always seem happy to help.

Dental Surgeries

Rochdale Dental Access Centre

90 Whitehall St, Rochdale OL12 0ND, UK – 01706 676367

The dentist & dental nurse I saw here were excellent. Helpful, took the time to answer my questions. The dentist properly studied & considered my medical history, great for nervous patients - virtually painless treatment. Outstanding, especially when you consider this is an emergency only service.

After having a horrible toothache for a few days, I rang my surgery and found out I had been taken off the system.. I was due to go Pakistan a few days later so had no time to register again at my surgery. Rang up and made an appointment. Were really helpful and considerate. Had my tooth removed and it was an easy painless experience.

Yorkshire Street Surgery

188 Yorkshire St, Rochdale OL16 2DN, UK – 01706 390243

I'm surprised at the negative comments, as I have had nothing but a positive experience so far. I've been with the surgery less than a month, and I've already sorted my prescriptions, seen the Nurse twice and the Doctor once. No problem getting appointments, friendly and efficient reception staff.

very good

BMI The Highfield Hospital

Manchester Rd, Rochdale OL11 4LZ, UK – 01706 655121

Words can't express my thanks to all the staff for their expert, warm and diligent care. From catering to the nurses on the ward, the aenaesthetist and surgeon to the housekeeping, reception staff, pre op staff and the encouraging physio team, every person who I had the good fortune to have looking after me was nothing short of fantastic! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend hip surgery at the Highfield Hospital!

Fantastic hospital. Looked after from the first moment upon arrival, to leaving. Staff all excellent . Nice clean spacious en suite room. Meals very nice, and well presented. My hospital of choice if ever a inpatient stay is needed for me in the future. Thank you all at Highfield Hospital. Ian room L101 Nov 17

Rochdale Infirmary

Whitehall St, Rochdale OL12 0NB, UK – 01706 377777

I have been to this hospital twice once for my son to check his eyes. I had an issue with getting there as the person who was taking me let me down last minute and the doctor waited an extra hour for me to get there. Even tho he should of been gone half hour before. He waited and checked my sons eyes bless him. That’s dedication at its finest. Day case surgery on the other hand I didn’t particularly like it. The staff were brilliant don’t get me wrong but after waking up they pretty much kick you out as soon as someone’s there to take you home ( they try and get you out within the an hour after waking up). When your feeling rubbish from anaesthetic and feeling dizzy etc it really makes you feel worse. But they warn you before hand it still does t prepare you for it though. Staff are fantastic tho really friendly, quick and efficient. And if there is a problem they do keep you in for a bit longer they wanted me to stay in for a couple of hours more due to some concerns so In some instances they aren’t kicking you out so fast, but even with the extra stay it was pretty brutal being kicked out when i was so disoriented with me being sleepy, sick and dizzy.

Started going to the eye department in February, first time was for a cataract removal...brilliant. then 4 weeks after having a check up they found I had a bleed behind my eye....now its being sorted out. The staff are great and treat you with respect and answer any questions you have

St John The Baptist R C Church

Dowling St, Rochdale OL11 1EX, UK – 01706 646877

I have been attending St John's the Baptist church for many years. I have seen many changes. Something's sadly seem to have faded away; such as the choir and organist and I often remember being able to pop into church when it was left open at lunchtime. However it's parishioners and Priests have carried on helping to demonstrate the lessons of how we should live our lives as Jesus Christ taught us. Let us hope Almighty God grants us MANY more years of our church; thanks be to God.

Newbold Baptist Church

97 Milnrow Rd, Rochdale OL16 5DL, UK – 01706 358662

Friendly, welcoming and a pleasure to be a part of. An essential part of a small community. Faithful to the Gospel and a real heart and passion for Jesus Christ. Worth a visit whoever you may be.

Newbold is a charismatic church with family atmosphere. It reaches out to China, Rumania and helps many missionaries. The church is usually packed in the mornings and less packed in the evenings when testimony can be given as to God's work in people's lives and is a warm lively service. Of all local churches, Newbold stands out in its desire to reach the lost and teach those hungry for good foundations.

La Scala

Beautiful food. Fabulous service. Never had a bad visit yet. Thank you x

Food is really good. Not just usual Pasta meals but proper Italian cooking like I grew fond of in numerous visits to Milan, Rome and Sicilia. The waiter came from there. Good wines too.

The Italian Job Restaurant

14 Huddersfield Rd, Newhey, Rochdale OL16 3QF, UK – 01706 842773

Nice friendly staff and the girlfriend really enjoyed her birthday steak and starter with a nice gesture at the end. It was a shame then that I have only given 4 stars and considered 3 because my pizza wasn't the best. I don't eat meat generally so my veg pizza had big chunks of raw vegetables and thick cheese with the base slightly doughy. They need improvement as the pizzas in the cocktail bar are far better, cheaper and made in a proper brick pizza oven which the restaurant doesn't have. The salt & pepper prawns were also a little bit neither here or there for starters, I Could of gone a star lower but the staff more than made up for this and it's a lovely place to eat. I would only go for the pizza in the bar though on the corner run by the same people and hope they can improve. Won't be back to the restaurant as the food could have been much better.

Delicious food, gorgeous cocktails and lovely friendly staff... Took my better half for his birthday with family last night and had a really brilliant night, even chatted to the next table and had a good laugh! Loved the intimacy of the restaurant, I would recommend this place for the menu alone...the steak was melt in your mouth and the pasta dish delicious...best one yet though was the salted caramel brownie! It's was sublime.....arghhh I want to go back now hahaha! Thank you...we will be back 😁

CockaDoodleMoo Rochdale

3-5 Yorkshire St, Rochdale OL16 1BH, UK – 01706 668642

I went earlier today with my Sister, Mum and Niece. The girl that served us was really nice and helpful, she even helped us calm down my niece who was acting up a bit and she was really patient with her. I had the Steak Sandwich off the Summer Specials menu with the Tom & Jam fries. The steak was cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully, coupled with what was on the sandwich it was a real treat. It's very rare I enjoy fries as much as or more than I enjoy the actual main but these were something else the fries where just loaded with tasty goodness. It's a lovely looking place with a home away from home feel and I personally love the decor, especially the beer signs on the wall.

Brought my husband for a treat, it's his birthday tomorrow, lovely as always. Really enjoyed it, even with a small mix up with the order that was sorted out within minutes. Brilliant, by the way, Nadia is the most lovely, helpful, smiley waitress ever, utter credit to you. Tell her I won't forget her strawberry gin. Thanks a lot for a lovely meal.
