Dental Surgeries

Pure Dental Centre

Fishleigh Rd, Barnstaple EX31 3TJ, UK – 01271 328188

Best dental surgery going locally, been with Simon Flynn for years best dentist I've ever had. He save one of my teeth when others would have just pulled it. Ignore the 1star not being able to get a same day app. This must been a rare and unusal situation. I got an app same day and it wasn't even an emergency and this is with several detist away... A 1 star is as bad as it gets like teeth ruined, surgery done in pain etc. Not a cry baby I can't get a same day app childish 1star review. Grow up, that's acting like the kid who takes his ball home when they don't get their way.

Have just had implant surgery carried out by a great team, Jonny Lynd and his assistant Lizzy, both of whom made the whole operation so smooth and handled it with sensitivity and care. Jonny is very knowledgable and Liz’s support invaluable with just right amount of hand holding during the procedure. Many thanks.

Absolutely lovely take away. Full of colour and flavour. Great service from lovely people. Will be returning. Is really nice inside too, would like to come back to eat in.

Authentic Thai food, cooked from fresh ingredients much of which comes from their own Oriental Supermarket (in the back of restaurant) Service is friendly and relaxed, always happy to explain the dishes and give advice on whether it's spicy, etc. We visit regularly and the food is consistently of the highest standard, beautifully presented and obviously cooked with passion. If you are a fan of Asian cuisine, you cannot get better in North Devon. They do takeaway for collection too.

We ordered and picked up a takeaway a couple of weeks ago. We were greeted like old friends by a lovely man. We ordered all Vegetarian and what a banquet we had. This was by far the best Indian/Nepalese food that we have ever had. The food was quite delicious. Highly recommended and we cannot wait to enjoy more when we are next in Barnstaple.

Newport Community School Primary Academy

Landkey Rd, Barnstaple EX32 9BW, UK – 01271 376252

I am a member of newport school and it is the best school EVER. It has a library, a go wild area, a nursery, a courtyard which is decorated beautifully, it has more then 500 children in it and it has a huge hall with giant projectors and a little music room and a staff room the size of all of the rooms in my house put together, it has it's own kitchen for pupils to cook in and a cool adventure playground wit swings a big wooden boat a balance type thing and loads more stuff. It has a climbing wall, three playgrounds for the little ones' a gigantic field, a small bottom playground and a huge top playground. The teachers there are so nice and I has a cairb which is really big and fun for children with special needs. We have loads of clubs after school and we are a very athletic school. The best school in barnstaple id say.

Newport school was thew best!!!! ❤❤❤

Pretty fun school I just left 2 go secondary

An OK school, went there 3 years ago but bullying wasn't stopped

Public & Preparatory Schools

The Park Community School

Park Lane, Barnstaple EX32 9AX, UK – 01271 373131

The members of staff here are amazing. They teach really well. Littering was an issue but the new rules that have been put in place are slowing the amount of litter at our school. I think we should change our motto and get rid of the core values. Also, there should be more academically based house matches. For example at the end of last year there was a massive quiz where all the houses got a top student for each topic to compete against other house in front of everyone. It was so much fun, (especially because my house won). I think the sport house matches segregate those who are good and those who aren't therefore not everyone can take part. But overall the schools sports and academics are very good and grades are above average for most.

I'm forced by the staff to give a good review...
