You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

State Bank of India UK (SBIUK)

15 King St, London EC2V 8EA, UK – 020 7454 4300

Service of the Bank is not as bad as some of the reviewers have mentioned, at least not in my experience till now. I have been to their main branch most of the times and Hounslow branch once, and my queries were always dealt with satisfactorily. They definitely have to go a long way in terms of matching their services with their piers in UK. However, they pay good interest and look after your money which to me is of higher priority than service.

Local Chambers of Commerce for EC3N 4AA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. 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. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Dental Surgeries

Liberty Dentists

1, 65 Redchurch St, London E2 7DJ, UK – 020 3137 9965

Super nice and professional staff. Service good. Really comfortable place. Recommended.

Went for a check up then after that a clean and small filling. I found the dentist and receptionist very friendly, warm and helpful. Felt very comfortable while having all the procedures and also didn't feel like I was being pushed to undergo further work. You are given all the time you need to ask questions and query the dentist, which put my mind at rest. Also close to Shoreditch station so very convenient as I work in the area. All the work I have done has been of very good quality. I will definitely be using this dentist in the future.

South Bank Dentists

County Hall, Riverside Building, Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7PB, UK – 020 7183 3558

I cannot recommend the team at South Bank Dentists highly enough. As someone who has always had a phobia of the dentist chair I now go there without any anxiety at all. Friendly people who genuinely care about you and your teeth !

Excellent dental care in calm surroundings. The whole team are very caring and thorough. I would definitely recommend this dental practice.

Dentistry 100

64-65 Long Ln, London EC1A 9EJ, UK – 020 7638 7100

This place is a real gem. Dr Parkman is the friendliest dentist I think I've ever had, and the kids all get on really well with him too. The surgery is clean, funky, and they play great tunes. Have recommended him it to several of my friends and they all love him too!!!

Falmouth Road Practice

Just queued up at 8am, was 7th in the queue, got an appt for 10.10am. Saw the doctor, got good advice and an x-ray appt at Guys. What is there not to like? I'm not saying it couldn't be better, but the NHS is in crisis and Brexit won't help.

St. Thomas' Hospital

Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7EH, UK – 020 7188 7188

It is overall the best hospital I have ever been in. Most of the doctors, nurses and midwives are really nice and friendly. Prenatal and postnatal care as well as the experience of giving birth was really straightforward with all the help I got. Only negative experience was with the day assessment unit. We waited at least 4 hours there despite having an emergency...

Staff on the whole great. Hygiene on refurbished Stephen ward disgusting to say the least. Toilets blocked. 4 bays under infection quarantine, no heating. No hygiene products in bathrooms. 3 of 4 lifts out of order What was the point of relocating patients into an unfinished ward? On top of all that still waiting after 3 weeks for an urgent procedure which at the time of review has been cancelled twice Apart from that a huge improvement on my previous hospital. I cannot praise the majority of the nursing staff highly enough though. 4 stars not 3 as previously posted. My bad.!!

Saint Bartholomew's Hospital

W Smithfield, London EC1A 7BE, UK – 020 3416 5000

Staff fantastic. It's a pity that the supporting administration is so poor. Treatment appointments have been up to three hours late.

Been there a number of times for blood tests and everyone the staff have been efficient, friendly and capable. And judging by how fast my GP gets the results back, also efficient in the processing of the blood.

Guy's and St Thomas'

Great Maze Pond, London SE1 9RT, UK – 020 7188 7188

Went to a&e for my son and only had to wait 1hr to be seen by doctor...amazing!!! And all staff are si kind and helpful.

Had to travel from the US to see my child through some routine but not insignificant surgery at Guys. Great experience. Wonderful doctor, very friendly and patient nursing staff, and just a superb job done by the entire staff. She was enrolled in school, and therefore covered by the National Health Service, so I got a good look at what Americans are so afraid of - Single payer health care. Hard not to come away a believer.

Local hospitals - community hospitals and hospitals with A&E departments for EC3N 4AA.

The new NHS website below is very well worth a look. Hospitals are not only listed but evaluated. I certainly know which ones I would go to! At the very least you will know what questions to ask if you are sent to one which has not entered its data. Good luck!

This is a great church. There are family friendly services in both English and Spanish. The atmosphere is really nice, and you will definitely have an enjoyable spiritual experience. I feel closer to Jesus Christ whenever I come. It is easy to access on public transportation, close to Kennington tube station and several bus stops.

Also the temporary home of the Crystal Palace ward. Services start at 1pm. You will receive a warm greeting from and loving congregation. The scriptures are taught and discussions are informative and enjoyable.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Frederick's Restaurant

106 Islington High St, London N1 8EG, UK – 020 7359 2888

The food was great as was the service. All staff were very clear which of the menu options contained gluten which was very useful. The interior of the restaurant itself was really nice as well.

Probably the best place to eat in Islington good value Good Food good wine friendly polite staff

NENNO Pizza Restaurant

14 - 16 Caledonian Rd, Kings Cross, London N1 9DU, UK – 020 7833 2790

I've had swordfish with gamberetti and it was absolutely amazing! I usually cannot eat a portion like that, but this time I had to eat it all! I loved it, the sauce was delicious and the fish was really good! I definitely recommend this dish. The hosts were really friendly, and it makes you feel like home when you are there. The best restaurant ever.

Decent Italian pizza in an area that seems to be mostly devoid of decent Italian restaurants. I like that the menu on their website has a vegetarian filter. Also the little terrace out the back was very pleasant. We were the only customers in here on a weekday lunchtime, I think it deserves to be at least a bit more popular.

Shapur Indian Restaurant

149 Strand, London WC2R 1JA, UK – 020 7836 3730

I'm not a big fan of Indian cuisine as I found its food having too much flavours. I've been here once and it changed my mind. The food was quite mild and tasty. I love the small snacks with different sauces they serve you as starters and the prawn curry in a raw coconut. I've seen negative comments about the service but we had a friendly and helpful waiter, am I lucky?

Best Indian food I've ever been in. Location is great on the strand. And the service id's excellent.

Nursery and Preschools

MACE Montessori Nursery School

38-42 Millman St, London WC1N 3EW, UK – 020 7242 5842

Miss Chris-Jayne and her team at the nursery was nothing but professional and welcoming. I felt at ease allowing my son to participate in their classroom activities. The teachers were warm and welcoming, where I found the children interacting and having such a wonderful time. Clearly, a lot of hard work and thought in this bright and colourful nursery is carried out to ensure the best possible environment for our children to be nurtured at such a crucial learning age. I thoroughly recommend to all!

Very happy with my sons progress at the nursery, the teachers have done a great job with him, he is very independent, well behaved and very sociable since he started the nursery. I am very appreciative to the teachers for the progress he has shown. When I pick him up at 6pm I can see he has had a great playful day as when we go home all he wants to do is rest and sleep. Highly recommend it.

Mars Montessori Bilingual Nursery

4 Collins Yard, off Islington Green, Angel, London N1 2XU, UK – 020 7099 0452

We moved from Canada to the UK and MARS was a huge help in transitioning my daughter to a new country. Friendly, kind staff who keep you up-to-date on your child's progress. We saw her flourish in French! I am so grateful for everyone at this school for everything they did during her attendance. Highly recommended.

Our son attending Mars for a year, after moving from another setting. Mars impressed us in so many ways, there is a fantastic caring atmosphere and also a child led focus on their development and giving even the littlest ones a wide ranging experience covering a range of topics. We are looking forward to our daughter also starting there in due course. Thank you to everyone at Mars.

Oaklands Secondary School

Old Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 6PR, UK – 020 7613 1014

One of the first and only choice we made for our child, who'll be attending the school from next September, Reason we took the decision, we have other family members who'd attended the school and also some are currently studying there. They all are seem to be doing very well with their education, and from their results and recommendation we decided to pay a visit 2 weeks ago. I was extremely pleased to see two of my former teachers Mr. Bonning and Mr. Purton still teaching within the school and I'm talking its over 20 years I've left school. These two teachers are great individuals always want the best for their students and provide real quality teaching. The headmistress she is the foundation of the school and also with experience and great results. Listening to her speech during the open evening she just convinced me and my wife along with my child. Thank you Oaklands

I am not rating the school, but i am rating the Arabic class that takes place on Saturdays and Sundays. I moved my child to Tanzeel white chapel, and they treated my child ridiculously bad, so i moved my child to Olive Tree. The Arabic that takes place in Oaklands.

Archbishop Sumner Church of England Primary School

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

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

I had my primary schooling here during the time that I lived in Lambeth. All I can remember was a teacher called Mr. Stalk and our headmaster from Northern Ireland.

City of London School for Girls

City of London School for Girls, St Giles Terrace, Barbican, London EC2Y 8BB, UK – 020 7847 5500

My daughter currently attends but has been very unwell with a long term condition. The way the staff have consistently "gone the extra mile" for her and us shows a level of care that is exceptional. As a parent that is the most important thing and I would happily recommend the school to anyone considering sending their daughter there.

City of London School for Girls is a non-denominational, independent day school, for girls aged 7 to 18, based in the London Square Mile. The School was established by the Corporation of the City of London with money from a bequest from William Ward of Brixton to provide education for girls that “would correspond, as near as may be, to the City of London School”. The school opened in Carmelite Street in 1894 and moved to the present premises in the Barbican in 1969.
