Nationwide

146 Uxbridge Rd, White City, London W12 8AT, UK – 0800 554 0296

I've moved from this branch. Although conveniently located on the north side of Shepherds Bush Green it has an annoying double entry door that doesn't always work very efficiently and it is easy to collide with people even though you're not supposed to be able to. Watch out if you're struggling with a wet umbrella. Why do these places hardly ever have a bucket to deposit them in. Can get super busy in here with a queue that never seems to move. You can also wait a long time to speak to an advisor.

Great customer service. Very friendly staff. Barely any queuing

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!

Great weddings here

Dental Surgeries

92 Dental

5 Glenthorne Mews, 115a Glenthorne Rd., Hammersmith, London W6 0LJ, UK – 020 8748 1381

Very friendly and professional team. I have been attending the practice for many years and can testify to the excellent care that they provide. Highly recommended!

Three generations of my family have been seeing Ron for 27 years of faultless dental care. He and his team have always worked to the highest of standards with care, compassion and consideration. I couldn’t recommend Ron and the practice more highly.

Marylebone House Dental Practice

152 Marylebone Rd, Paddington, London NW1 5PN, UK – 020 7935 3811

Got an appointment straight away! When I arrived I was met with a friendly smile and my appointment was on time. The dentist Charlie was great! I needed a couple of fillings that he performed there and then. They didn’t hurt a bit and they didn’t hurt my back pocket either. Much more reasonable than other dentists in London. Would happily reccomend them to anyone.

I wish to say a massive thank you to the wonderful team at Marylebone House Dental Practice. After years of neglecting my dental health I developed teeth issues. When I visited the Practice I was in pain and my teeth were in a bad state. I was warmly welcomed and after several appointments my teeth are now pain free, healed and yes, I am keeping them clean. Dr Paras is an excellent intelligent caring dentist. He successfully performed complex procedures on my teeth which had exceptional difficult issues. Thank you so much. I am deeply grateful. Meeting Dr Paras is a blessing. He is a credit to the dentistry profession. Thanks - Kind Regards John Kanyua

Kings Dental Clinic (Hammersmith, Olympia)

36 North End Rd, Hammersmith, London W14 0SH, UK – 020 7603 5211

I am a 4th year dental student and doing my placement at the hammersmith branch, the team is very friendly and well qualified.

The best dental service I had in 7 years of my life in the UK. I came here for a simple check up and was very pleased with the professional treatment I received. Highly recommended!

The Bush Doctors

147 Shepherd's Bush Green, Hammersmith, London W12 8PP, UK – 020 8749 1882

Fantastic doctors who genuinely care about their patients. The reception team are helpful too. Getting appointments is tricky, but that's the standard in surgeries these days.

Great surgery, amazing staff. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Pamini is always thorough.

Knightsbridge Doctors

15 Basil Mansions, Basil St, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1AP, UK – 020 7589 8965

Apart from an initial misunderstanding about which practice to go to (I didn't realize there were two in London) I found all the staff very helpful and kind. I was treated with dignity and respect throughout the whole procedure and at every point a staff member took the time to explain the process to me. Thank you

We went here for our health checks for migration purposes and the staff were professional, polite and efficient. The only con is that they are quite expensive.

Emperor's Gate Surgery

49 Emperor's Gate, Kensington, London SW7 4HJ, UK – 020 7244 5670

This surgery is amazingly caring. I moved to the area with my girlfriend 1 year ago and have need to visit the surgery on a few occasions having got the flu virus. Dr King and her team have been fantastic. She even called me on one occasion to see how I was and then demanded I attend the surgery asap as she was concerned about me. I have never known anything like it to be honest. It feels more like the private care we get at work.

Both my husband and myself have been registered with this practice for some twenty years. Over the years the standard of care provided has been truly amazing. Intervention by my husband's GP, Dr Maria Pankhurst, has meant that he had an early diagnosis and subsequent treatment for two different cancers and is now clear of both cancers. Drs Stott and King have both been proactive with looking after us both over the years; their knowledge and sensible advice has helped us both greatly. I always find the "frontline" team of workers courteous and caring; they deal with enquiries in a professional and polite manner. We are fortunate to be registered with a great practice.

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.

The London Clinic

20 Devonshire Pl, Marylebone, London W1G 6BW, UK – 020 7935 4444

Had a great experience here. The Consultant I saw was thorough and professional, very nice surgery and staff.

I myself can confirm that I am not sure where these bad reviews are coming from. My surgery was delayed by two hours, but it was made clear on my submission form that they could not guarantee to be on time due to surgeries taking place before mine. I wanted to thank all the nurses that looked after me following a surgery yesterday, especially and personally to Rosalind (Rose) and to Filipa. They were very caring and Rose checked on me the whole time as I experienced a lot of pain and she really comforted me. This bedside manner isn't something you get anymore in the UK... Thank you!!!

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!

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!

Mustard Restaurant

98-100 Shepherds Bush Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 7PD, UK – 020 3019 1175

Wonderful experience at Mustard! We were the party of 3 at 8pm on June 15, 2018. Our server was excellent and went out of her way to make a "mocktail" for our son. All of the courses we ordered were amazing! Simply one of the best meals I have ever had. (Salmon/Avocado Toast, Chicken with Leeks and Mash, Lemon Custard) Kudos to a stellar staff and very talented chef/kitchen team.

Every time I have dined at Mustard it has been an amazing experience! The food is absolutely outstanding, everything on the menu is delicious and uses the freshest ingredients. The staff are incredibly attentive, welcoming and accommodating. I’ve recommended Mustard to all my friends and they have also shared the wonderful experience that Mustard offers.

CERU South Ken

Love this restaurant! It's one of my favourites in London at the moment and it had a large range of fishes suitable for vegetarians that are interesting and not simply an afterthought to cater to the non meat eater. Huge variety to choose from and lovely wines as well. Nice dining experience.

We found this tappas place when we Googled places to eat that were within walking distance of our hotel. They manged to fit us in (we hadn't booked ) and we chose our food. We weren't disappointed. It was delicious. The service was friendly and unobtrusive ,the wine was very nice and the atmosphere was very informal. Would go again but it's a long way from home!

57 Filmer Road Private Nursery and Preschool

57 Filmer Rd, Fulham, London SW6 7JF, UK – 020 7731 9670

I’m finding it hard to write the words for this review. My son started here just after he turned one, and, although we are just over a month and a half in, I have confidence in saying that choosing Filmer rd is the best parenting decision I have made. Our son is so happy here. The staff are absolutely wonderful - making both parent and child feel content and at home, and doing everything needed to inspire confidence in them as caregivers of our children. This week’s activities to celebrate the start of the World Cup are inspired, fun and inclusive. The effort every member of staff makes is apparent each time we arrive. I cannot recommend it highly enough and thoroughly encourage anyone considering it as a nursery option to join up. Thank you Filmer for making our transition from full time parents to having a son in nursery part time as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Melcombe is honestly an amazing school. The staff and pupils are extremley friendly and your child/children will not only obtain a good amount of knowledge, but will also have lots of fun due to the activities the school has to offer. Not to mention, if your child has a problem, the teachers will go out of their way to try and fix it. The school is great at teaching, offering lessons that are both fun and educative, and will leave your child/children with an amazing experience :) - Yekbun Nazli Guven
