Banks

HSBC Private Bank Ltd

78 St James Street, St. James's, London SW1A 1JB, UK – 020 7860 5000

Good bank

Allied Irish Bank (GB)

1st Floor Berkeley Square House, 4-19 Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London W1J 6BR, UK – 020 7629 8881

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

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

The Chelsea Building Co

168 Earls Ct Rd, Kensington, London SW5 9QQ, UK – 020 7259 2247

Have used this company several times and can highly recommend. David and his team were a delight to have around! Mess was kept to a minimum, turned up on time and didn’t land me with extra hidden costs. They even didn’t seem to mind too much when I changed my mind numerous times on things and were very accommodating. Would definitely use them again.

I used Chelsea Building because they were competitive and professional pitching for the business and I was not disapointed.They completed painting the outside of the house and remedial building work on time and to a very high specification.Their workfroce were a pleasure to have on site and they always left the site clean.I would definitely ask them to pitch again for any further building and/or decorating work that I have going forward

Nationwide

157-159 Victoria St, Westminster, London SW1E 5NA, UK – 0800 554 1790

Nice modern branch, and plenty of staff on hand. Lunchtimes can get a bit busy. I hope Nationwide updates more branches to operate and look like this one.

Great service, hardly any queues and there are always plenty of staff if you need any help. Oh and if you finish work a bit late they have later opening times!

Local Chambers of Commerce for SW3 3RS. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

Dental Surgeries

Paddington Dental Practice

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

Dr. Gursharon Dhariwal has changed my perspective of dentists. She is an extremely conscientious, gentle and caring dental practitioner. My dental health is of utmost importance to her and I have never felt better about my teeth and gums. I no longer feel anxious about visiting the dentist as I know my treatment will be pain-free, pleasant and full of laughter! Thank you for looking after me so well!

Great dental practice and would highly recommend. Due to a past traumatic tooth extraction experience in my young teens, it had really put me off going to the dentist and became a very nervous patient. Work colleague recommended Yasmin Golar as a really good dentist - she was superb! Definitely made me feel at ease and took the time out to explain the treatments, and calmed my nerves. I will be scheduling my next general dental check up with her.

Stockwell Dental Practice

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

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.

Bupa Dental Care Chelsea

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

Dr Briggo is amazing!I have been suffering from severe pain due to my wisdom tooth being erupted and she has been incredible in providing me with immediate treatment in removing the tooth and all the necessary information. I felt safe with the options she provided me and I trusted her with the procedure and all the step I needed to follow afterwards. I cannot thank her enough! I definitely recommend her, I didn't feel a thing.

Dr Bringo is amazing! Calm, professional, reassuring and dedicated to patient care. I could recommend her enough, possibly the best dentist I've ever had!

London Doctors Clinic

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

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.

Very easy to book an appointment. The clinic is very central. The staff is very friendly and the doctors listen what you have to say and give you time to explain the situation that brought you there without rushing. The blood tests were sent on the same date that you took the samples with an email explaining the results.

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

Very efficient, friendly and professional. Would highly recommend them.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

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

Great service! I only had a few hours in the UK between meetings and managed to get an appointment on the day exactly when I needed it. The consultation was thorough and helpful. Perfect.

A U. S. tourist staying in a hotel near Paddington--shortly after 8 a.m. on a Friday I found the clinic online, and I was able to book an appointment for 9:30 A.M. that day. The clinic is inside a high-rise building near the train station. Once inside and after circumnavigating the elevators, the receptionist and doctor were very friendly and waiting for me in a pristine clean area. I received good professional treatment, and was in and out with my much-needed antibiotic in less than 20 minutes: 55 pounds for the 15-minute appointment, plus 10 pounds for filling the prescription for me 'on the spot.' I was certainly pleased with the rapid response and good care that I received.

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

First time as an inpatient for my son this week but the staff have all been really lovely, he's actually enjoyed the food which is extremely rare for him and they Drs and play staff along with the nurses have made it as pleasant a stay for him as is possible... so my only whinge is the extremely small WHSmiths that's here on site was closed all day today so couldn't get him any treats for being a such a superstar ⭐

Initiatially went there unconcious in an ambulance! However, my follow up appointment 18 months later was first class.Two consultants. Two senior nurses and three other specialists in their particular field,all to see me.The follow up 'home'care is also first class and any problems only a phone call or email away.Best to travel by public transport.Car Parking can be problematic.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

369 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 9NH, UK – 020 3315 8000

Been here for the birth of our second child. The birthing center has been absolutely fantastic. Very competent and friendly staff, they made us feel at home and helped us with great sweetness and professionalism. The only slight issue was a noisy fan in the room, but this was absolutely nothing compared to the great service we received. Highly recommended. We did not experience the labour ward, but all examinations and prenatal courses we had at the hospital were great. Again, professional, punctual and friendly staff. Great!

It does not feel like a hospital. There are sculptures and art everywhere, which makes it such a pleasant space. On the top floor there's even a cinema with the latest releases for patients. The canteen serves up fresh food everyday too.

Building a little date but the worship experience is great. Lots of seniors with wonderful experiences to share. The sign post is not visible from outside the compound. But its right after the bus stop on the same side as the bus stop.

St Patrick's Catholic Church

21A Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 4NR, UK – 020 7437 2010

I just wanted to thank the two lovely people who came into my office today to spread word of this beautiful church. They gave me two Miracle medals (one for me and the other for my fiance after I told them he was a practicing Catholic) They really were two of the nicest people and said they were over from Ireland. Just their presence has made me want to go to the church. They have made my day!

Beautiful church. Went to 11am Christmas mass today and it was beautiful and solemn, homily was engaging.

Lack of communications from company assigned to pick up the car for auction; so 4 out of 5. Otherwise a 5 star idea.

Clearance Solutions Ltd

163-173 Praed St, London W2 1RH, UK – 020 7706 7554

Very good service, price acceptable.

Excellent service. I needed a flat cleared and the two men sent to clear it turned up on time and did a brilliant job of taking away everything I needed cleared very quickly and with no problems. The price was very reasonable as well. This is the second time I have used Clearance Solutions Ltd, and I would use them again without hesitation.

Metro Waste

London's Premier Waste Company! I had a garage full of rubbish so started googling companies; I stumbled across their website and fired off an email, the office staff were very prompt in their response and really knew their onions! The driver was on time and very helpful. For service and value, Metro Waste can not be faulted! Happy days!!

This company came highly recommended by a colleague and they didnt disappoint! Great people, great service and excellent value for money Many Thanks again Ray

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

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

The vain, preening, shouty, toupee-wearing narcissus was not on duty when we visited, but not to worry: the food was excellent. My starter of deep-fried Camembert was delicious and the side order of garlic bread was toasted to perfection. For main I had the deconstructed corn beef hash with market bought greens and yet more garlic bread, the fruit-laced Sangria really bringing out the flavours of the food. For dessert I had the wonderful Jam Rolls Polly with custard (no, I didn’t have any more garlic bread!) followed by coffee (Mellow Birds) and mints. A quick boogy at the bar and we were on our way home. A great experience.

Expectations were a little too high going to Ramsay's, waiters were 1st class, noise was out of control, asked to relocate, after relocation one of our chairs was very sloppy to sit in. Food was good not great, steak was tender but very salty. Expect this to be a very expensive meal in a very noisy atmosphere, Is there better out there for lesser price? yes! I rarely post a review, but watching Gordon Ramsay conduct himself on TV expecting the absolute highest standards intrigued me to have a meal here, maybe I was fooled by reality TV...who knows. lower your standards and expect to pay $150 to $200 per person.

Rules Restaurant & Private Dining Rooms

34-35 Maiden Ln, London WC2E 7LB, UK – 020 7836 5314

The atmosphere was great and nice and cosy. However the smoked salmon was quite salty. My daughter came back home and complained that it was very salty. My game menu wasn't very good either so returned it. The kidney pie was just not tasty. However probably it is just my opinion. The staff were kind and good experience for perhaps....once...

Had a perfect lunch here, with great food and wonderful service. We ordered the roast rump cap of beef, and a steak and kidney pie. Both yummy. The freshly-made horseradish was something else to shout about too. Will definitely come back again.

HIX Soho

66-70 Brewer St, Soho, London W1F 9UP, UK – 020 7292 3518

Hip cocktail bar downstairs, chic dining upstairs. The menu is very strong on seafood and game with fresh, simple, delicious preparations. We enjoyed the sole and venison. Purple flowering broccoli was rather normal broccoli but happily not cooked to mush-- crisp and buttery and delicious. Fantastic service and convenient cloak room-- no wait!

We had a lunch for 20 people in Mark's Bar downstairs, last Saturday. The room was warm and welcoming, with loads of room for our unruly children to run around and play. We had the 'Autumn Feast' set menu because of the size of our party. All three courses were delicious, and there was a huge amount of food. Service was attentive, friendly and very patient..... Bloody Mary's were excellent!! Need an excuse to go back ASAP.

Minors Nursery School

10 Pembridge Square, London W2 4ED, UK – 020 7727 7253

The girl I look after has attended Minors Nursery School since September 2017 and she loves it. Everyday she is happy to go to school and I can see how comfortable she is with the Minors team. The teachers are very reliable, caring and professional. Often she comes home with her little arts and craft, which are nice and creative. The atmosphere with other parents and nannies is very friendly, too. Would definitely recommend this nursery school, it is fabulous.

A wonderful and caring nursery, my daughter loves it here. The teachers are very kind and always smiling : )

Primary and Secondary Schools

Bousfield Primary School

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!

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 530 Nursery to Year 6 pupils at Wyvil Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the teacher and site manager on arrival and they helped me prepare the hall for set-up. The day was well-organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, learning about space shapes and travelling into the future colonising moons and planets across the Solar System. Thank you Wyvil Primary for a very pleasant visit.

supper school

St James Junior School

Earsby St, London W14 8SH, UK – 020 7348 1777

Both my son and my daughter have been very happy there. I am aware of a small number of problems in the 1970's but that is a very long time ago !

My son is attending St James and he is enjoying to go to school. It is very welcoming school. Small classes, well behaved children, but still with freedom to be children. Teachers are skilled and supportive. Children are engaged to participate to school's activities from very beginning. By the end of the first semester your boy or girl will happily recite Shakespear's poems and sing on Latin and Sanskrit (completely willingly with smile and happiness). Parents are friendly. Competitive credo is swapped for learning and understanding. As a parent of child who is attending St James I can't say nothing but best for this school so far. He was shy boy and now he is growing into an confident, kind, very well educated and behaved young man. Regarding things from the past, I don't know how someone can judge the school nowadays on its past... (new milenium schools and parents are different and generally schools in the past weren't some pleasant places)
