Banks

Bank Of Ireland Corporate Banking

Bow Bells House, 1 Bread St, London EC4M 9BE, UK – 020 7236 2000

Always been a fabulous bank even though I've had no branch for 3 years, being in England. They own the Post Office so it can offer most branch services, and the 365 online is fabulous, though adding payees or changing your phone number is a bit draconian.

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.

The Old Marylebone Town Hall

Westminster Council House, 97-113 Marylebone Rd, Marylebone, London NW1 5PT, UK – 020 7641 7500

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!

Beautifully restored and now part of London Business School's campus

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

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.

Harley Street Dental Clinic

139 Harley St, Marylebone, London W1G 6BG, UK – 020 7486 1059

My dentist Samar Khamis at Harley street dental clinic is AMAZING, she's a real expert in her field. She is also very lovely and totally puts you at ease. She has given me the most lovely smile and has also had utmost patience with me! The day before Christmas Eve I chipped half my front tooth and had a real panic, but she saw me immediately during her lunch break to fix it before Christmas. She gives everything to her work to get the best results and I honestly couldn't recommend her more.

I had a bad accident that resulted in 4 broken teeth. Dr Munslow and Dr Polycarpou took the time to fully diagnose the extent of the injury and and discuss my options. I had a half day appointment at a good time for me to fix a bad restoration from another clinic. Dr Munslow's attention to detail and professionalism were second to none and she made me feel at ease during the whole procedure. I had a composite buildup which matched my other teeth perfectly and the cost was very reasonable. No-one can tell that they have been restored! Four months down the line I feel so glad to have found this clinic. They are giving me free followups to check the condition of my teeth as I might need a crown/RCT on 1 or 2 of them. It does not feel like I even had the injury. I will certainly be using HSDC exclusively from now on. Its great to know that they care so much about your long term health and don't push you into expensive and unnecessary treatments.

SE1 Dental Centre

52 Kennington Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7BL, UK – 020 7928 5964

I cannot say enough kind words about SE1 Dental. I have been a regular patient here for 11 years. This dental practice is simply brilliant! It is a very welcoming relaxing environment. Monica is an excellent dentist and it is a pleasure to visit her and her competent team. The service from receptionists, nurses (Christine), hygienists and dentists has always been second to none. I always feel extremely well cared for here. My best interests come first, all options/treatments/materials used etc. are explained fully and costed in advance. Their fees are very reasonable and transparent. I have recently had work done by Marlin, who thankfully saved my teeth from needing crowns with her amazing technical ability. She is a very kind dentist! I just love her and highly recommend her caring and professional manner. Her needles do not hurt! I love the experience of SE1 Dental. If visiting the dentist is a nerve wrecking experience for you, this is the place to come.

Monica and Angela were absolutely spot on. I had 3 veneers and a Crown fitted in April. I have to say I am over the moon with the results and can highly recommend SE1 Dental.

London Doctors Clinic

Room 101, 117 Waterloo Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 8UL, UK – 020 8712 9378

Very comfortable reception and office. Both times I've been here (once on a Saturday) the doctor actually listened, gave clear advice, and helped me with prescriptions and referrals, and to navigate how to get the further help I needed. They also stock certain basic prescriptions right there - eliminating the need for another stop at a pharmacy, which is helpful especially off-hours. Sometimes, it's worth it to invest a little for excellent service.

I was in a desperate situation where I needed a standard medication (for me) prescription before I ran out of an important medication. While not actually referred to this practice, I did get some strong suggestions to google London Doctor’s Clinic. That cake from another PHS physician. The appointment scheduling was excellent and, from the time I tried to book an appointment until I was examined and had my new prescription, it was less than an hour.

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

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.

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.

Saint Etheldreda's Roman Catholic Church

14 Ely Pl, London EC1N 6RY, UK – 020 7405 1061

A little gem indeed: the architecture, the history, the windows (on a sunny day the choir windows are mesmerising! Look out for the angels quite unusual) And the service too is top quality either weekdays or Sunday.

The place is very quite and warm. It has a 1:00pm mass during the weekdays which is good for working faithful Catholics. The entrance is not that noticeable as it is facing parallel with the road, new to the place won’t find it easily but just looked to the left and you will find the small door which lead to narrow hallway. Very solemn place of worship.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Buckingham Gate

Galvin Restaurants

19 Newman St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 1PF, UK – 020 7299 0444

Review for Galvin Bistro de Luxe, which is now closed. Food was decent, but nothing spectacular. Restaurant was very busy and tables were a little too close together for my liking. Decor was quite nice though and the service was good. Not sure what the other restaurants are like but this one was worth a try.

Really nice dinner and really nice explosion of flavors. And really nice selection of wines!!!!! Nice if you get the recomendation of the staff

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.

Great place to celebrate a special occasion. My son's treated me to a father's day lunch. Was a lovely experience. Good food on the Asian side.

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。

My wife and I went to Restaurant Gordon Ramsay for our anniversary and it was a very enjoyable experience. It was our first visit to a 3-Michelin starred restaurant, we both decided to go for the menu Prestige and ordered wines based on recommendations. The food was exceptional and we savoured every dish. The highlight for us were the ravioli of lobster and I also loved the Cotswold lamb dish. The service was very good, waiters and waitress there were very attentive but not in your space. Our meals lasted 4 hours, it cost us quite a bit but I think it was worth the experience.

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..

Great school, children are encouraged to flourish as who they are. Reception teachers are fantastic and my daughter always skips to school and has a smile on her face at the end of the day

Well the greatest primary school their is to be honest. i had the best experience their and ill never forget the school :)

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.

Loughborough Primary School

44 Minet Rd, Brixton, London SW9 7UA, UK – 020 7274 8374

Loughborough primary school is excellent! I am in year 6. This school is special because whoever attends their are taught fairly and treated fairly. No one is left out. I recommend the school to any parent to send their child their.

I go to this school and I think its very good and very big. There are lots of construction sights as they are making an new hall, and some new classes. The new office is being made and the staff room has been made to a new class. If you send you child here they will like it.

Charterhouse Square School & Nursery

40 Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6EA, UK – 020 7600 3805

Charterhouse Square School is founded by original headmistress Jamie Mason with school fees set at £425 per term! Over the course of the next two decades we go on to gain a reputation for all-round academic performance. In March the school becomes part of Cognita – a worldwide group of schools founded by Sir Chris Woodhead, former head of Ofsted. In December Caroline Lloyd takes over as headmistress fifteen years after first joining the school. When space becomes available in an adjacent building, the school expands to occupy a total of seven floors in our much-coveted Barbican location. This allows the school to add a dedicated Early Years area, a school library and an art room. n further work to improve the school site, the entire basement and ground floor of number 40 is completely remodelled. The addition of bi-folding glass doors to link our Green Room to its outdoor sand and water area is a particular hit with the children. Charterhouse Square School celebrates its 30-year anniversary with a surprise party for the children and a ball for parents, teachers and friends of the school. The school is also featured in The Good Schools Guide for the first time.
