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!

Modern looking branch. I didn't need to wait long, the staff that attended me was friendly and got the job done.

Recently refurbished branch, so everything is modern, clean and new. Spacious too. Have only ever spoken to one member of staff, but she seemed friendly enough.

Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support.

Beautiful place to celebrate a wedding! The rooms are wonderful, such great panelling and ceiling details. The Westminster room is particularly special. It gives a certain gravitas to the very special occasion. The registrars were absolutely perfect presenting the ceremony with a perfect balance of humour and seriousness. We shared in a very special occasion at a great place. We were also reminded of an lovely occasion at this location when we came to register our sons births!

Great weddings here

Dental Surgeries

Westminster House Dental Practice

11-13 Horseferry Rd, Westminster, London SW1P 2AH, UK – 020 7976 5251

Online booking system and text confirmation is great. The reception staff were kind and efficient. My dentist Dr Payal Shah was extremely kind, courteous and professional. As someone who suffers extreme anxiety, she managed to put me at ease. she talked me through all the treatment I was to have done and constantly reassured me whilst it was being done. The treatment itself was excellent. In the past she has fitted a crown and my last visit a filling, which were all done without pain and with constant reassurance. The dental nurses who assisted was also professional and kind . I would not hesitate to recommend this practice and in particular this dentist to anyone.

As an American I have fairly high standards for dentistry and am so thrilled to have found a dentist like Dr Christian who takes such great pride in his patients’ smiles. When I consulted Dr Christian on removing old metal fillings, he carefully advised me to ensure I understood the fillings were not defective or dangerous and if I proceeded it was only for aesthetics. I did proceed and find Dr Christian’s consistent focus on quality and appearance of work to be really refreshing and rare. He was very attentive both times to ensure the bite was just perfect. All the staff seem interested in making the patients’ experiences as pleasant as possible. No matter where I work or live in Greater London, I will travel to be a patient of Dr Christian.

SW9 Dental Practice

263 Clapham Rd, London SW9 9BQ, UK – 020 7274 0455

Great dental practice. Friendly staff. I am generally nervous when it comes to dentists, but I felt relaxed during the entire treatment, and I would definitely recommend this place.

I recently had a dental treatment done at this friendly dental practice. It was a very smooth experience and I was very happy and satisfied. The staff were helpful, and the dentist helped me to relax and feel at ease even though I am very nervous when it comes to dental treatments. I really recommend this dental practice.

Bupa Dental Centre Marylebone

30 Paddington St, Marylebone, London W1U 4HB, UK – 020 7224 2727

I have been there for several dental appointments. The staff was very welcoming and the Dentist very competent. I found the whole experience pretty pleasant (a rare thing for a dental appointment!). I would happily recommend this practice to anyone. Booking was easy, and all was excellent.

Staff and service are amazing. Can't fault them. Often I've ring up last minute asking for an appointment and they've kept me in mind for any cancellations and have slotted me in when it's been possible. The dental treatment is excellent too. I see Greg Davies who dealt with my root canal expertly. A very understanding team who are very supportive. Very recommended.

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.

Awesome place very nice and helpful people I learned a lot about the Mormon faith and have been to a few church services to its open to the public and you can learn a lot about early Church history and even get a free Bible well worth a visit.

This chapel is just lovely, and everyone is so kind and welcoming to visitors. The visitors center is interactive and engaging, and the sunday services are even more phenomenal! I can't wait to come back again soon!

Church with great bible teaching and very friendly people.

Unit 15426, Box 6945 Rathbone Square, Rathbone Pl, Fitzrovia, London W1A 6US, UK – 01684 252583

I run the IT department for a large law firm (500+ desktops) and we use Surplex as the service is always fast and the drivers friendly and helpful. We like to charity donations this company make and also the data policy is first class. We have used them for about five years now and I don't think we will ever move away to someone else - there is no need. I don't normally write reviews but Surplex asked me too and, to be honest, I was only too happy to help as they've always bent over backwards to accommodate my requirements.

I have used Surplex for our IT / computer recycling from both their London office and their HQ in Malvern. They are professional, speedy and their reporting is first class. The online aspect of retrieving documentation is both fast and secure. We have a particular need for data security which is why we use Surplex, they do not wipe like some other companies we have used they actually shred hard disk drives and in fact any that carries data is treated in the same manner. Mark, the MD, is very knowledgeable and completely down to earth.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. 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.

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!

Kitchen Table

70 Charlotte St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 4QQ, UK

If you don't give this place 5 stars, you are mad! Kitchen Table is such a fantastic culinary experience and the absolute best food you will ever eat, paired ever so perfectly with the most lovely wines. If you are a super picky eater, perhaps it's not for you, but if you're happy to try anything and everything (allergies, of course, catered for), this place is amazing! Even things I am not normally keen on, I loved here. And, what a fantastic insight to the happenings of a Michelin starred kitchen. Expensive? Maybe. But an experience you will certainly never forget.

Excellent, for sure. Good value? Not even vaguely. Shockingly expensive, actually. Inventive? Somewhat - one truly memorable course. Curiosity satisfied, but wouldn't recommend for the money, or go back.

Ormer Mayfair

Flemings Mayfair, 7-12 Half Moon St, Mayfair, London W1J 7BH, UK – 020 7016 5601

I love this place. Have been here a number of times for lunch, evening meal and, in the hotel, it's self afternoon tea. Very nice food and wine at reasonable prices for the standard of food and the setting. Modern European food of a very high quality. Great friendly knowledgeable staff. Limited number of tables gives quite an intimate feel. Nice relaxed but quality bar next to restaurant for drinks. Setting is formal but not stuffy. One of my favourite places to eat in London.

Excellent services plus great tasting foods. Beautiful presentations. Great value to have lunches here.

Nursery and Preschools

St Michael's Pre-School

St Michaels Church Hall, Stockwell Park Rd, London SW9 0DA, UK – 020 7274 0783

I'm very pleased with all the staff of the nursery to all the support they gave and my daughter in the past year that I lost my father. They were comprehensive, friendly and helped me lots of times when I was in tears. The staff it's just amazing, friendly and supportive. A big thank you to all of you. You're doing a great job. My daughter's skills improved a lot with your support. Annita still talk about her good time in St. Michael's Nursery. THANKS.

Of all the many nurseries that my grandchildren attended, this is the one that stands out, simply because the staff were so loving. They were so warmly greeted as they arrived (unlike at the "outstanding" nursery nearby), and they came out very happy. My memories of this place are warm and glowing.

Hurley Pre-school

Hurley House, Kempsford Rd, Lambeth, London SE11 4PB, UK – 020 7582 1838

Can't recommend Hurley Preschool enough. These wonderful ladies care deeply about their kids, always full of fun activities and attentive care. Special thanks to Rosemary and Linda - you've made my little girl's time with you a treasured memory.

Fantastic nursery, they are lovely staff and really work with parents on the development of your child. My daughter loves it..

Primary and Secondary Schools

Archbishop Sumner Church of England Primary School

Jubilee House, 2 Reedworth St, Lambeth, London SE11 4PE, UK – 020 7735 2781

My eldest daughter has attended this school from reception and I have been impressed by the dedication of the both the staff and governors. Music and sports provision with specialist teachers for a small primary is particularly good along with support for a range of abilities both those needing more basic support and those who need to be stretched. Only quibble is clarity and timeliness of communication; the school has both a mobile app and regular SMS updates in addition to a weekly newsletter however not always consistent and allowing sufficient time for working parents to plan. In general a welcoming and supportive environment for children, parents and staff.

Great support for kids who need it and great after school activities. It is a little small for 2 form classes though.

Crawford Primary School

Crawford Rd, Camberwell, London SE5 9NF, UK – 020 7274 1046

My child used to go to Brunswick Park and they didn't teach her very well but this school has educated her very well and she is a top student there. The school doesn't serve halal meat which is a shame but she sometimes has packed lunch for something to eat but I'm very glad that I applied her to the school.

Seems to be an ok primary, nothing too fancy. Classrooms are a bit packed, but you can't expect much from such a low budget school. Still much safer than others that i've seen, all local parents and students.

Ashburnham Primary School

17 Blantyre St, Chelsea, London SW10 0DT, UK – 020 7352 5740

Since joining Ashburnham Nursery my Son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going into nursery everyday.Very experienced teachers who are caring and professional and whom the children respond well to. Very caring environment, including encouraging them to eat all their lunch... We are very pleased with the Ashburnham Nursery. Our SON has improved socially and academically already. He can recognise letters and numbers in such a short space of time. All the teachers are brilliant!”

Glendower Preparatory School

86/87 Queen's Gate, Kensington, London SW7 5JX, UK – 020 7370 1927

The school was started in 1895 by Miss Lloyd and Miss Cornwall at 103A Fulham Road. At that point the school, known as the Cornwall and Lloyd School, shared premises with Dunn and Co the hatters and The Sports Motor Car Co. At some point between 1902 and 1918, the school moved to 5 Glendower Road and changed its name to Glendower School. After 2 years in Glendower Road, the school relocated once more, this time to 25 - 27 Cromwell Road. The school remained at this site from 1920 until 1939 when the Second World War forced an evacuation to Devon. Glendower moved into 87 Queen’s Gate in 1947 where it has remained with some extension and expansion until the present day.

In The 70's great school years!
