Four options here

Normally you do this by postcode (as the list above), there would be too many variables on any other part of the address.

Check the links they all do it bar the free one (which is not a very extensive list in the first place).
If you want free then you are not going to have an extensive database - things like this cost money.

Nothing wrong with Googles Places API but the last time I was looking at this (which was probably a year or so ago) the information was sometimes inaccurate. I think the maximum requests you can do a day is about 1000.
