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!

Firefly Payroll Ltd

6 Yalding Hill, Yalding, Maidstone ME18 6AL, UK – 0845 073 9400

We have been using Firefly for 5 years now and have been extremely happy with the service. Any concerns are dealt with promptly by Noreen. Our auto enrolment process was made easier using Firefly too. They have the "can do" attitude which makes our payroll run smoothly so any changes we want to make to our processes are accommodated. We really are treated like the customer. Would highly recommend.

We are a brand new free school and have never set up a payroll before. They made the whole process incredibly easy, handling all the admin and talking us through each step of the way. The monthly reports and payslips are produced on time each month without fail, and give us all the information we need. When we've had to ask a question they have always responded promptly. I would have no hesitation to recommend Firefly, especially to organisations setting up a payroll for the first time.

I can't believe I've lived in Maidstone 27 years and not visited here! It is perfect for everyone.

Loved it!

This is a lovely place.I love the play ground in there.The only one side is letting me down, the parking fee is not flexible.

Arrived around 19:30 expecting not to get a roast but I was wrong. Had the slow roast shoulder of lamb. Delicious! My daughter had the rib of beef & pulled pork, loved it & husband had cod & chips. Sat outside on a lovely sunny Sunday evening. Price average £15 pp. worth it.

Nice food. Good value. Excellent service!

Fantastic meal , very reasonable price, couldn't ask for more friendly and helpful staff , the chef and also the owner ? What a really friendly and welcoming man any questions and help would not e a problem. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The Tickled Trout

Chequers Cottage, Lower Rd, Maidstone ME15 0PE, UK – 01622 814717

Visiting for a rather chilly autumnal Monday afternoon lunch, although the pub was rather quiet there is a real nice vibe with the new decor following their refurbishment by Hush Heath, (a great local winery, check them out) and the staff are very courteous, adding to a real nice feel about the place. The waitress offered us the restaurant or bar to sit down advising the bar may be more comfortable where it was rather quiet, which was a credit to their hospitality, small considerations go a long way. I had a vegetarian Linguine (£10) off the specials board which was great. My wife had a burger (£12) (often a bone of contention with restaurants and myself), which was pretty OK actually (despite the brioche bun and wooden board (points of contention with me!), there are some pretty disappointing burgers in this area! I will return to dig deeper into their menu, there was a minute steak was about £15.00 which is getting to the lumpy side for a lunch. We ate off the a la carte menu which I assume wasn't a lunch menu, but the offerings were typical lunch meals so that was fine. Its probably slightly on the pricey side when you move down the menu to things like the steak, but this is one of the fancier pubs locally and its not breaking the bank for a nice place to eat.

Nice place food was nice but portions very small left still feeling hungry
