I have always been scared of the dentist but i went in for the first time and they were so friendly, patient and reassuring i would definitely recommend this dentist to anyone with a severe phobia of dentists.

Bury Dental Centre | URAESTHETICS

Bury Dental Centre, 10a Wash Lane, Bury BL9 6AS, UK – 0161 761 1909

Had a check-up with Daniel. One of the coolest guys I have ever met. I hate going to the Dentists but this one made me feel special and welcoming. They did a great job in checking all the areas in my teeth and telling me what needed doing etc. Daniel has a fab team. Very welcoming. They have a very great dental plan for £26.50 a month, you can get 2 x-ray appointments, 4 dental cleans and 15% of an examination. Can't wait to see them in April for my filling.

After of years of dreading going for regular treatment at my old dentist, i decided, on my husbands recommendation, to join BDC. I have to say it's one of the best decisions i have ever made. Daniel & his team make me feel so relaxed on my regular visits. Daniel has recently whitened my teeth and replaced my two front composites, and all i can say is a god of dentistry. Thanks Daniel and your team.

Christ Church Walmersley

Walmersley Rd, Bury BL9 5JU, UK

Very pretty church

I've never actually been to a service at this church but my partner and I have sat in the church garden here at Christ Church most weekdays since September 2014 for lunch. Our little one wasn't even born then. The garden is lovely and peaceful and sitting under the little gate house or on the steps under the bell tower is great. Unfortunately the company my partner works for has just moved to Rochdale?! (lord knows why) so its all change as of tomorrow. We will be back though, this church will always have a place in my heart with great memories and hard ones too.

Bury Baptist Church

114 Manchester Rd, Bury BL9 0TH, UK – 0161 425 8546

The photos posted by Alan Jones and used by Google are NOT the Baptist Church. They show the Parish Church in the town centre. Baptist Churches are simpler affairs. This is a small building not the vaulted Victorian masterpiece that is the Church of St Mary The Virgin Bury.

Luv this Church all 3 ov my boys have been Christened here totally beautiful xx

Had a damaged alloy wheel needed replacing, rang up and spoke to the guy, said text me a picture and I'll check. Text straight back, got one in. Went down, wheel and new tyre ready and waiting for fitting. Wheel balanced and refitted in about five minutes flat, left, job done! Miles better than if I'd gone to any of the major suppliers. Fantastic price, fantastic service, couldn't recommend more highly. Thanks.

Fantastic service. The missus was going down wales and was at a loss. Gave me no BS Just helpful said there was a car coming in the next hour and will have the part we need. Bang on the hour it was there, the lad jumped up on the truck smash the window. Bonet open part taken off in my car less than 5 minutes belting service

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bury

Casalingo Restaurant

23 Church St, Ainsworth, Bolton BL2 5RA, UK – 01204 521828

One of the best Italians I’ve ever been to. The service was great; all the staff were so friendly towards us. The pasta was amazing, probably one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. Atmosphere is lovely, a nice little place which feels cosy. Helps that it is nice and local too. Would be better if they were open 6/7 days a week rather than just 5. Can’t wait to visit again.

Don't let the outside put you off this is a lovely place with great service and wonderful food at a reasonable price. The staff are so friendly and helpful willing to explain anything on the menu and request any changes required. The restaurant is quite warm. Parking is a little difficult but well worth it for the great food.

Thai Corner (My Thai Restaurant)

50 Market St, Bury BL9 0BJ, UK – 07548 729816

Pad Num Prik Pao with Crispy Chicken and Jasmine Rice is my absolute favourite, love this place, highly recommend!

Quality is always great. The girls that work there always polite and happy to help.

Pizza Express

1 Rock Place, The Rock, Bury BL9 0JX, UK – 0161 763 3655

Came in mid day. No cola, no fanta, no Bolognese. Delivery not until Wednesday. Being honest its the first time this has happened at this restaurant so I'd not hold it against them. Always had a pleasant time here without issues. Gets busy on a weekend with lots of families. Oh and no sticky toffee pudding. After it was mentioned to head office they gave us some discounts so good recovery.

Exceptionally busy on Saturday 06/01. Staff looked a little frantic but did well. Nice food & Atmos. Had a £9.95 2 course deal. Quite limited choice and drinks expensive. Good value for what we paid for a nice meal but could very quickly become an expensive pizza with out a promotion. Never the less pleasant and nice food.
