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.

Westpac Banking Corporation

Camomile Court, 23 Camomile St, London EC3A 7LL, UK – 020 7621 7000

Fantastic service! Staff were incredibly well informed, helpful and efficient. Having wasting considerable time trying to open an online account with another Australian bank, it was an absolute joy to find one that would do everything face to face. Thank you Westpac!

Excellent. Efficient and fast..

Bank of England

Threadneedle St, London EC2R 8AH, UK – 020 7601 4444

I am a pre 2017 pound coin. Those new kids took my job. Now, I feel worthless. Thanks to the nice folks at Bank of England for giving me a place in the museum. Not quite my old job, but haven't been put in a vending machine for ages!

I went to exchange some old twenty pound bills that went out of circulation and spent some time at the museum. It was time well spent. I enjoyed learning about the history of the bank, its architects, and was intrigued about how busy and crowded it was in the bank on the dividend day. A display of all the Bank of England notes was among my favorites, and of course who would refuse touching the real gold!

Dental Surgeries

Finsbury Dental Care

5 London Wall Buildings, Finsbury Circus, London EC2M 5NS, UK – 020 7638 6556

Finsbury Dental Care is the best dentist practice I have ever visited (and I have been to many after knocking my front tooth out when I was younger). I first saw Gavin Seal in relation to potential root canal treatment and he was brilliant and extremely honest (and actually ended up saving me around £700 when other dentists has recommended other procedures due to his extensive knowledge and practical experience!). I then continued having routine treatment at the practice with Adam Clapp who is extremely skilled, gentle and thorough. Adam always takes care in explaining things and puts me at ease. Unlike other dentists, I never feel rushed through my appointment and he always happy to answer any questions (and is also always on time). Adam is again very honest and if I need a filling/ treatment he will explain exactly why. I have also emailed the reception a few times with questions and he will personally respond with advice. I don't usually write reviews but feel this dentist deserves it!

Adam Clapp is a experienced and talented dentist who takes professional pride in doing an excellent job. He has a reassuringly calm and personable manner. I know he would be great with a nervous client. Highly recommended.

Bell Yard Dental

7 Bell Yard, London WC2A 2JR, UK – 020 7831 1002

I've always had a general apprehension when it comes to the dentist and was recommended to see Dr Dhanani by a colleague. Really glad I took the advice. He was very reassuring and informative as he explained my treatments and options as we went along, and made sure I had a bright confident smile on my wedding day. Would definitely recommend!!

If you're in need of an excellent dentist i can highly recommend Dr Paaras Dhanani of Bell Yard Dental. He's a very personable guy and a top class dentist so you're guaranteed a good chat and a highly professional dental check up!

Bishopsgate Dental Care

36 Spital Square, London E1 6DY, UK – 020 7377 6762

Lovely dental practice, Gina and her team are very knowledgeable and welcoming. I have been visiting regularly with my children and she always makes them and myself feel at ease. The practice is very modern and up to date. Thank you to you all, I would really recommend bishopsgate dental care. Even the children now like the dentist!!!

I am so grateful having Gina as a dentist. My brother came over last year, and he had this problem with his teeth, specially with the two front teeth, one was rather dark. He had a fall from his bike when he was very young, ( one of the teeth broke and went dark, affecting the next tooth as well), that changed his smile completely. After that, he was always concern about his smile and even affecting his self- esteem.... one day chatting with my husband, he reminded me Gina, ... So I made the appointment for my brother....Gina said by the time, that it would take some time to get good results, but it was definitely possible... He had start with the hygienist, who was great and taught him exactly how to clean his teeth properly.....and them following, Gina did this amazing job in his two front teeth,.. He looks amazing now, a new person, with a beautiful smile. ... Also, brought my Mum to see Gina this year,.. My Mum felt in good hands straight away.. .she normally gets really nervous with this type of procedures, but Gina was very understanding.. My mum had to have a tooth out and she was fine after a few days, no swollen cheek or discomfort at all. Thank you so much Gina and your team, for all the excellent service and dedication.

London Doctors Clinic - Private GP

Suite 127a, 9 Devonshire Square, London EC2M 4YF, UK – 020 8712 9378

Extremely friendly and reassuring. Very good value. saves the stress of making the phone call to your GP to be told you cant be seen for 10 days. will definitely recommend.

The entrance/location is challenging to find at first but the service and doctors are great.

London Doctors Clinic - Private GP

4.1, Alpha House, 100 Borough High St, London SE1 1LB, UK – 020 8712 9378

I visited London Bridge not long ago, as I was feeling extremely unwell in work. My GP had no same day appointments and suggested to call back the following morning, but I just could not leave it that long. I googled doctors local to me and this was the nearest to work. I saw the doctor within the 15 minute time slot, got my medication and felt much better by the end of the week. Amazing, convenient service, and great staff including the helpful receptionist who offered me water. Definitely a recommendation for friends/family within the busy City life. S. Jane

After 2 months of trying to get tests and good sense out of the NHS, and a lot of stress in the process, everything I needed was achieved in a single day by a lovely London Doctor. Such efficiency and such sound and caring advice was the most pleasant surprise to me. I wholeheartedly recommend them and will definitely use them again if I need to.

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.

Good experience overall, good location. I was able to get an appointment quickly and Dr Aarti was very nice. Same day result for blood test which is great. Put a 4* and not 5 because I feel the price is quite high as compared to elsewhere.

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.

National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery

Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG, UK – 020 3456 7890

Whilst were sleeping, the NHS is still running and Teresa May is a mug. What was a very distressing matter, the out of hours staff ,Bussy, Nosizo and Rindai were the most helpful members of staff. It was a very personal issue and each individual from their own department ensured I got to the right place. The NHS needs more employees like those mentioned. Cannot fault them.

spent about 2 weeks here just before Xmas following a stroke. staff were amazing as were the doctors. amazing experience.

Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine

60 Great Ormond St, London WC1N 3HR, UK – 020 3456 7890

After drugs didn't help. I tried alternatives not having much faith but hands down its been so helpful. The doctor is so caring and my condition has healed.

Barts Health NHS Trust

Fairly to say hospital are clean & nice as well as the physio therapist because I had to go for my physio every month twice I always had nice experience from them but down side is people who work at the reception they don’t have any smile on their face no greetings nothing. Sometimes they r busy amongst themselves to discus theirs personal issue while u staying on the queue. In their communication they don’t have few words which are , please, thanks. They need some training about how to provide a good customer service just a smile 😀 can bring this hospital top star

Very good hospital and research facility! Friendly staff and doctors, good service and the research part of the hospital is brilliant!

Metal & Waste Recycling

Oxestalls Rd, London SE8 3QS, UK – 020 8691 8026

Hello Sir/Madam. I went through site Metal & Waste Recycling. its really complete from all necessary details but only missing is your email contact.

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 London

Tas Restaurant

33 The Cut, South Bank, London SE1 8LF, UK – 020 7928 2111

Good food but irritatingingly let down like so many places these days with an underhand 12.5%= service charge , if you're charging for food why do you need a service charge? Shame really as I'd have gone back otherwise

I come here from time to time as it's near to my work. Food is delicious, staff are very welcoming and friendly. I like that they are very careful with dietary requirements, and go above and beyond to make sure that I know what I'm eating and don't compromise my dietary needs. They have some very good vegan options in amongst their regular items, Just ask the staff.

Tas Restaurant

72 Borough High St, London SE1 1XF, UK – 020 7403 7200

Nice ambience and attentive staff. Guitarist was very entertaining. I was a bit disappointed in my food. Lamb stew was a served with much of the rendered fat as the gravy. A bit pricey for what it ultimately was.

Really amazing food and the waiters and waitresses are really lovely people! There is a really big family vibe to this restaurant and it comes out in the flavour of the place. Also if your accessible this place is not too bad but it is quite difficult to get to the loo - yes there is a disabled loo here!!

Thegate Vegetarian restaurant

379a St John St, Clerkenwell, London EC1V 4LD, UK

Don't understand how anyone could rate this below a four. Visited this restaurant a number of times and every time the service and food has been impeccable. One of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in London

Nursery and Preschools

Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School

339/341 City Rd, London EC1V 1LJ, UK – 020 7833 9388

My children attended this warm and inviting Nursery from when they were 5 months old. My son now 10 and daughter 5 experienced all the age groups. They have both turned out to be very socialable and academic individuals and I feel that credit goes to the long standing practitioners and professionals that my taught my children over those vital early years. The staff showed a clear commitment to the individual needs of my children with their loving and caring attitude and I believe this was the best start I could have given them. This Nursery was truly home from home.

Hopes and Dreams was the best start Molly and Charlie could have had, and for me, total peace of mind. Hopes and Dreams is professional, secure and offers a stimulating and loving environment. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

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.

Rosemary Works School

1 Branch Pl, London N1 5PH, UK – 020 7739 3950

My son has been at Rosemary Works School since nursery and is extremely happy there. It is a small school with a very nurturing and creative environment. The teachers are excellent and my son is developing a real love for learning. I couldn't recommend it enough!

Both of our sons absolutely love going to school every morning. In the school's informal, friendly and flexible environment children do very well academically out of real interest and self confidence rather then simply a sense of discipline and obligation. Children are encouraged to think independently and creatively, and to voice their ideas, thoughts and opinions which will be heard and actually considered in matters ranging from lunch menu to learning subjects. Simply a great school.
