Fed up with google?

Good afternoon, everyone,
For sometime now I have noticed that when I look for something locally, I get offered locations/firms around London. This annoyed me, but I wasn't too worried, but in the last 4 to 6 weeks I have become really hissed off with google.
You type something in on their frontpage and what you get up is a matter of pure luck as to whether or not it relates to what you want. This annoyed me, but I then found out why I got stuff reound London. There is a 'location' box when you go into the sites. It lists mine as London. I have tried their 'change location' but when I type in where I am 'Basingstoke', or 'Basingstoke, Hampshire' or even 'Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK' all I get is 'Location not recognised'. I am not an avid town person demanding that Basingstoke is on everything but I do think it is very perverse of google not to have Basingstoke in their database.
So, executive decision has been made and I wish to use another search engine which will not only recognise where I am but also only give me web sites that are relevant to what I want!! The problem is, I think, does such a beast exist? So I would like to hear from anyone who has switched from google, or who uses another search engine completely. Is it worthwhile switching to another or is the rubbish you get from google better still than what other search engines give. I know that some people will swear blind by a particular search engine but I would really like to hear from as many as possible. And no this is not a company trying to get your names and addresses, I assure you!!
I have a dual core machine, running Windows 7 Home Premium with 4 Gb ram. If more information is required please let me know!!
many thanks in anticipation.
