Banks

Allied Irish Bank (GB)

1st, Berkeley Square House, 4-19 Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London W1J 6BR, UK – 020 7499 7848

The staff were very helpful to give me directions around the city. Very clean

HSBC

76-78 King's Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4TZ, UK – 0345 740 4404

I had Vikash as my consultant and he was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I have honestly never experienced such great customer service in my whole entire life. Everything that I needed was done for me and I also left the branch feeling very happy and inspired by the service I received. Thank you Vikash!

Vik was so nice very helpful fantastic service. I will recommend all my friends to him.thank you vik :)

Adam & Co plc

6 Adelaide St, London WC2N 4HZ, UK – 020 7839 4615

The service I have received from Adam and Co has been exemplary, in my opinion every company should take note and follow suit. Mary in the 24 hour call centre has gone above and beyond to help my elderly mother. They are patient, kind and have worked extremely hard to find a solution to our issue. I cannot express my thanks enough to her for her outstanding customer service. In this day and age it is rare for such a huge company to treat their customers with such a personal service. When I have enough money to bank privately I will be going straight to them with all my money.

Building Societies

Building Societies Association

York House, 23 Kingsway, London WC2B 6UJ, UK – 020 7437 0655

Decent rooms for hire

Nationwide

152 Clapham High St, London SW4 7UA, UK – 0800 554 0278

I have just seen two comments about the staff and it is not the same branch where I bank. They must of mistaken it for another bank. They are absolutely lovely there. I'm just sorry that people seem to be making cheap shots about the service. I go once a week as do most of the other customers and you can tell that we are made to feel very welcome and dare I say at home.

Nationwide Building Society

415 Strand, London WC2R 0NS, UK – 0800 554 0460

Excellent service today from Tom! I tried to switch over my account on the phone for the past 2 hours - no luck! I pop into the branch 10 minutes before closing and Tom was on hand to help. Did it all within 15 minutes and didn't mind staying late. Thank you!

Excellent service today! Just moved over from HSBC and the staff who helped me with an internet card reader were fantastic. The branch itself has just been redone and looks great! Thank you!

Exceptional service, facilities and Registrars. Couldn't of asked for anything more for our special day. Lisa & Patricia made it what it was and are brilliant at what they do!

Dental Surgeries

Paddington Dental Practice

17 Craven Rd, Paddington, London W2 3BP, UK – 020 7723 6106

I have come to this practice for many years as I work just across the road. The dentists are good, I especially love the male receptionist, if I remember right, his name is Daniel, I would rate 10 stars for his attitude and service, always friendly, helpful, polite; as for the other lady receptionist, I would rate NO star, she is not friendly, rude, and messed up my appointment, I called to cancel my appointment, and re book another 1 at the same time, all she did was cancelled my booking and not re-book my next appointment. After making payment, there is NO thank you, the face and attitude of receiving your payment is as thought she is doing you a favour. I wanted to pay with Amex, she said with fed up face " we don't take Amex!", rather than "sorry, we don't take Amex". Maybe she is just a racist lady, as she was very friendly to the lady behind me, can't wait for people like that to get fired.

Don't really leave reviews but i just had to this time because credit is due when deserved and the service from Dr Gursharon Dhariwal was 1st class. I'm not a fan of any medical professions because they scare the life out of me but she made me feel so at ease and calm I was so thankful. Thank you again Doc!

Bupa Dental Care Chelsea

242-244 Fulham Rd, London SW10 9NA, UK – 020 7376 3330

I found Dr. Brigo to be a god send to deal with a stained tooth. I found the process stress free and the results amazing! Would highly recommend Dr. Brigo for any cosmetic repair work.

Seems to be a reoccurring pattern that Dr. Briggo is absolutely brilliant. I was incredibly embarrassed about the state of my teeth. She calmed my nerves and made me feel so at ease. I do not like the dentist but i felt as though i was in safe hands with this doc. Thank you!

Stockwell Dental Practice

9 Stockwell Rd, London SW9 9AU, UK – 020 7274 5678

Very friendly staff. I'm really happy with my dentist Joao Da Silva. I recommend this dentist. 😊

The reception staff are friendly and professional. I didn't see the dentist, only the hygienist, which was a lovely girl and done a great job in my mouth with the deep cleaning.

London Doctors Clinic

101D, 18 Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 3QL, UK – 020 8712 9378

It's easy to make an appointment online and be seen within a few days. The doctors are professional and helpful. Take the lift to go straight to the first floor rather than waiting at the reception downstairs. However, while appointments with the doctors are reasonably priced, any other treatment is expensive. A very simple urea test cost me £200. The doctor recommended I try a cream that he gave me for £15 while saying he wasn't sure if it was easy to find at any pharmacy (I checked later and it was easy to find for £5).

Easy to find. Easy to make online appointments. Very reasonable prices compared to most. The consultancy fee is not mentioned - so the £155 is actually £210. The men's toilets- for the urine sample - are downstairs through public areas. Results are quick, staff are friendly.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

1906A, Portland House, Bressenden Pl, Westminster, London SW1E 5RS, UK – 020 8712 9378

Lovely doctors. Very helpful and understanding. Last minute appointments available easily

This is an exceptional service for people with a busy schedule or limited time in London. I am an expat and need support in managing my diabetes. The LDC has provided a fast turn around on test results, follow-up advice and issue of prescriptions, at very reasonable prices.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

11.10, 20 Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, London W2 6LG, UK – 020 8712 9378

I found the service offered very useful. I was seen on time, by a kind and interested doctor. I would definitely recommend the London Doctor's clinic.

I arrived around 10 minutes early to the clinic, signed in and told the receptionist my appointment details. I was told to sit down and wait. I was not called for my appointment until 10 minutes after my dedicated time and when I arrived to meet the doctor, it was assumed that I had arrived late as she did not know the reason why I had been called up late and had to rush my appointment. I did not feel entirely welcome because of this delay and was already relatively stressed out related to why I had booked an appointment to see the GP in the first place. The doctor was professional and did all she could to help me and had apologized for the delay. But I think there is some sort of miscommunication between your reception and your doctors. I don't think I will be returning because of this rather uncomfortable experience.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Royal Brompton Hospital

Sydney St, Chelsea, London SW3 6NP, UK – 020 7352 8121

I have been admitted twice for surgery at RBH and each time their service is amazing. Both outpatients and inpatient care delivery are of high standards, the staff and consultants were easy to talk to and responsive to my queries and concerns. Now that my heart is fixed, I might take on the joke of my lovely surgeon, Dr. Michael Rigby, to join the London marathon.🤞🏻Thank you so much to all the staff of Royal Brompton Hospital!

My 3 years old son had sleeping study at this hospital on Monday 12/02/2018. It was my first visit. We received an excellent care by doctors and nurses. Nurse's particaly were amazing and they have done everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much for your amazing work. Well done!

Kensington Park Medical Centre

75 Russell Rd, Kensington, London W14 8HW, UK – 020 7371 6060

I have never had a problem to get an appointment in this medical centre. I find receptionists very polite and understanding. Depends on the doctor but sometimes my appointments a little rushed, but no complains there - after all it’s a free medical healthcare.

I've only been to this medical centre a handful of times since registering 4 years ago and each time I've been, I've found the admin and medical staff to be helpful and attentive. I've never had to wait longer than 5 or 10 minutes if at all so I'm very satisfied with their services.

Beautiful church. Well worth a visit. And if you're a history buff, this is the location of the gravesite of the treacherous traitor, Major General (Benedict Arnold)

Hired their hall for a party a few years ago and they were absolutely amazing and the space and facilities were great.

very different from the catholic church which is what i expected (this church came up dueing a search doe catholic churches) they worship mostly by singing. this past sunday they'd invited a speaker who read from exodus and spoke about it. then they sang some more bwdoee dismissing us.

Western Riverside Waste Authority Recycling Facility

Smugglers Way, London SW18 1JS, UK – 020 8871 2788

Pretty quick despite the queue. No charge (but no vans allowed). Drive to the far end to park, the queue comes from everyone taking the first available space and blocking everyone behind them.

This is an excellent resource-for those bringing material without cars too.

The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Novikov Restaurants and Bar

50A Berkeley St, Mayfair, London W1J 8HA, UK – 020 7399 4330

The food here is amazing. The restaurant is quite crowded, so it's worth making a reservation in advance. Otherwise, there may be a problem with the table. A visit outside of peak hours is more relaxing. Everything on the menu was great, especially the seafood. Desserts were also on the point. Service is professional. We will definitely return here during our next visit to the area.

Italian side. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly and lovely staff. The mocktails were really good and very well presented, lots of flavours that I haven't had elsewhere. There was a good selection of food, halal and gluten free options which was nice to see. The food was good but mine (corn fed whole baby chicken) was a little on the salty side. My husband's roast potatoes were also salty and he asked for a replacement which was also a bit on the salty side. Everything was beautifully presented again. We opted for the dessert platter which did not disappoint, plenty there for everyones tastes and the waiters even sang Happy birthday for our friend for whom the dinner was for. There is a minimum charge of £50 per head so be aware if you do go. It's worth a visit.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

68 Royal Hospital Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4HP, UK – 020 7352 4441

Absolutely amazing French food adventure. The service was second to none. The waiter,waitress and manager explained the ingredients of every dishes and helped us to have the best experience. They were so friendly, professional and patient to customer. The atmosphere is awesome. The interior decoration is elegant. The price is reasonable. It took us three hours to complete the adventure. Totally worth every penny we paid. Highly recommend.服務非常好,建議點一個classic一個seasonal的菜單然後share,他們會解釋每一個菜的食材和吃法,很有趣。時間很長,很有價值的美食之旅。

BEST dining experience EVER! Awesome food & friendly service! Excellent variety, moderately priced. Fresh home cooked food. Warm and inviting! Thank YOU!

Browns Covent Garden

Great service and friendly attentive staff, a good mix of food available and able to accommodate a large group of 12 with no problem. One member of our group wasn't eating and they had no problem with this. Looks classy but relaxed inside. The food was well presented and tasty.

Thanks to the whole team. I've been to Browns many times and will go back very often. I celebrated my birthday there in May. It was a fantastic evening. We loved the service, the food, the cocktails, the beer and the atmosphere. A special thanks to our waitress, she did a great job. Greetings to London, André sends from Germany. I will see you again in December.

Nursery and Preschools

Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy

Dolphin House, Riverside West,, Smugglers Way, Wandsworth,, London SW18 1DE, UK – 020 8877 1135

My son has recently started the nursery in the toddler room, really friendly environment very resourceful and captivating. The room is very inviting including staff. Management seem very efficient and caring as myself and my wife have been extremely anxious about leaving our child with his specific needs. The new manager Evelyn Herrera is extremely approachable and I already feel at ease with her around. My wife explains she was also very reassured by her with our child's specific needs. I appreciate all there hard work especially in the last few weeks and continue to support as they continue to flourish.

I believe this is the best nursery in the area, its a modern, spacious design with a large outside play area. They have a fabulous, very balanced and healthy menu with fresh natural ingredients cooked on site every day by a great chef! The new Trust Us concept from Busy Bees has a great deal to offer to busy parents, and so its well worth booking a visit. They currently have vacancies too, in the baby, toddler and preschool academy rooms. Please do book a visit.

57 Filmer Road Private Nursery and Preschool

57 Filmer Rd, Fulham, London SW6 7JF, UK – 020 7731 9670

I’m finding it hard to write the words for this review. My son started here just after he turned one, and, although we are just over a month and a half in, I have confidence in saying that choosing Filmer rd is the best parenting decision I have made. Our son is so happy here. The staff are absolutely wonderful - making both parent and child feel content and at home, and doing everything needed to inspire confidence in them as caregivers of our children. This week’s activities to celebrate the start of the World Cup are inspired, fun and inclusive. The effort every member of staff makes is apparent each time we arrive. I cannot recommend it highly enough and thoroughly encourage anyone considering it as a nursery option to join up. Thank you Filmer for making our transition from full time parents to having a son in nursery part time as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Lovely school. My two sons have attended Clapham Manor since nursery and they're very happy there. The large majority of teachers there are brilliant, enthusiastic about their job and supportive when there are issues. Children perform extremely well. There's a very nice community feel to it too. Highly recommended.

I would vote 6 stars if I could. One of the premier primary schools in South London. Largely to do with Mr Hazell and his team.

This is an excellent school, it provides so many people with help and learning opportunities. I loved my teachers Mr Fox and Mrs Pears for the kind natured teaching skills . I struggled after leaving this school as other schools can't compare or care for my learning. Needs. Barn dances in the hall was one of my favourite times there. Thanks.

This is an amazing school, full of light, green spaces and playgrounds, set in a lovely neighbour. I have 2 kids there and I am so impressed by the way they are tough, and the children are so happy to go to school. Staff is knowledgeable, respectful and kind, the head teacher is clearly doing a great job!
