Banks

Lloyds Bank

112 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 4SN, UK – 0345 300 0000

I enjoyed their service

Amazing stuff... slow but very nice and polite.

TSB Bank

68 Baker St, Marylebone, London W1U 7ER, UK – 020 7935 0016

Only two cashier desks and not even a paying in machine so sometimes have to wait a little while and the stuff is ok I would say just average but been to better TSB branches before.

TSB Bank

9 King St, Hammersmith, London W6 9HR, UK – 020 8748 6009

Branches of TSB are very few and far between yet they offer the most comprehensive awards for current accounts and linked savings. Here is one in your doorstep. If you've read it watched the ads give a real person a go from the off.Theres a naive welcome charm about the rotation of the window logos. I like good old fashioned humour.

Came inside 16:00 on saturday and still received help that i need. Good work, friendly, starting the conversation all the time :)

Building Societies

The Chelsea Building Co

168 Earls Ct Rd, Kensington, London SW5 9QQ, UK – 020 7259 2247

Have used this company several times and can highly recommend. David and his team were a delight to have around! Mess was kept to a minimum, turned up on time and didn’t land me with extra hidden costs. They even didn’t seem to mind too much when I changed my mind numerous times on things and were very accommodating. Would definitely use them again.

I used Chelsea Building because they were competitive and professional pitching for the business and I was not disapointed.They completed painting the outside of the house and remedial building work on time and to a very high specification.Their workfroce were a pleasure to have on site and they always left the site clean.I would definitely ask them to pitch again for any further building and/or decorating work that I have going forward

Nationwide

146 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd's Bush, 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

Yorkshire Building Society

255 Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 6NA, UK – 020 7602 0006

Local Chambers of Commerce for W8 6LU. 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!
The Old Marylebone Town Hall

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

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

A stunning, beautifully old piece of English history! Well worth a visit! This was the former head office for Births, Deaths & Marriages in London.

Town Hall

Hornton St, Kensington, London W8 7NX, UK – 020 7361 3000

Good place but the council lacks efficiency

Pretty good as a conference venue, have been here for Astrofest every year for years.

Hammersmith Town Hall

1 Riverside Gardens, Hammersmith, London W6 9LE, UK – 020 8748 3020

Business development and networking.

Local town hall, can get very busy within and in the summer poorly ventilated.

Dental Surgeries

Bupa Dental Care Chelsea

242-244 Fulham Rd, London SW10 9NA, UK – 020 7376 3330

I found Dr. Brigo to be a god send to deal with a stained tooth. I found the process stress free and the results amazing! Would highly recommend Dr. Brigo for any cosmetic repair work.

Seems to be a reoccurring pattern that Dr. Briggo is absolutely brilliant. I was incredibly embarrassed about the state of my teeth. She calmed my nerves and made me feel so at ease. I do not like the dentist but i felt as though i was in safe hands with this doc. Thank you!

92 Dental

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

My appointment with Dr Ron Baise at 92 Dental was excellent in every way possible. I’m usually very nervous but I trust Ron, because over the years I’ve been going I know that he will only do what is absolutely necessary, that less is more. Taking care of teeth is the priority. He is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable and also very clear when explaining x-rays. I feel safe in his hands. I also saw Ash who’s absolutely brilliant- what a fantastic Hygienist - such attention to detail and got to all the tricky places. Excellent surgery and lovely receptionist. Strongly recommend

First class dentistry! I'm absolutely thrilled and cannot think of a single way to improve the whole service. I came here on a friend's recommendation having lost an upper front tooth and was sad to be facing my first fake tooth. But the result is amazing and I couldn't be happier. I even requested 'non intrusive, no metal' and Ron's immense skill and experience has delivered exactly that. I highly recommend him to anyone in search of world class dentistry.

Quality Dental : Fulham

337 North End Rd, Fulham, London SW6 1NN, UK – 020 7385 0113

Dr Patel is very thorough and considerate. He goes the extra mile for his patients. The reception team are really friendly and the new refurbishment is fabulous! Highly recommend.

Dr Jatan Patel is one of the best Dentists that I have ever been to. He is extremely knowledgeable and has great experience with cosmetic dentistry. He made my teeth look amazing!

The Bush Doctors

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

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

Well, the receptionists are not quite friendly and a bit miserable (i work at a reception so i know), i can only count 1 who is really lovely. First time there, i had to wait 1h after my appointment time to be seen, i know there is always a waiting time but i've never had to wait that long. The doctor did her job, however rushed me because she was running late and i understand it happens but i told her i have the right to get an appropriate appointment and not be rushed. 2nd time there it was just for a blood test and i also had to wait 40-50min which is surprising since taking blood doesn't take that long. I'm only going there because it's close by but not sure if i can recommend it. I'll book another appointment with another doctor and see how it goes. If you don't want to wait i'll recommend booking early morning appointments.

Hammersmith Surgery

1 Hammersmith Bridge Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 9DU, UK – 020 8741 3944

This daring building not only defies the hectic surrounds but dismisses them out of hand. Practically wedged between a rock and a hard place, stuck under the armpit of the 'flyway' and traffic roundabout. Curved white concrete 'curtains' shield and rebuff the uncompromising environment with authority, audacity and...smarts.

I have been coming to this surgery for many years and it's disappointing to see the negative reviews. This is a great surgery with brilliant doctors who take time to listen and understand. The receptionists are helpful and professional.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

11.10, 20 Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, London W2 6LG, UK – 020 8712 9378

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.

Great service! I only had a few hours in the UK between meetings and managed to get an appointment on the day exactly when I needed it. The consultation was thorough and helpful. Perfect.

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.

University College Hospital at Westmoreland Street

16-18 Westmoreland St, Marylebone, London W1G 8PH, UK – 020 3456 7898

My wife had surgery for her kidney stones at Westmorland hospital and I must say staff nurses ( Hannah & student nurse tayin on the 3rd floor ) and doctor Miss Allen & her team was super amazing. Also Susie & Siobhan ( senior nurses ) were great and been so helpful. I would highly recommend this hospital to everyone... so thank very much guys !!! Anil & Amandeep

Excellent medical support and treatment, outstanding hospital cafe food, best salad and best stew I've ever had and really tasty soup too. Only one glich, otherwise 5 star, I'm taking up with the fire service. 14 bin bag size bags of rubbish in the stairwell to the overnight stay bedrooms, on the first floor of 6 floors. Told that the entrance I came in was the only way out. A staff member showed me another way out, but said he wasn't meant to tell me. The manager said he shouldn't have told me!!(it's on the 6th floor! - with no fire exit notice, just a notice telling staff that they must not use this exit!). I look forward to this manager's letter, he promised within a week, after some pressure! He refused to deal with the situation, but anyone staying there, if the rubbish in the stairwell was on fire, the higher up you were, the less chance of survival, not being aware of the top exit. He said he'd speak to the fire officer who does the inspections, refused to give me the F.O's contact number or name, when I asked why, "Because he's a member of the Trust"!!!! Says he won't do anything straight away to resolve the concerns of rubbish in the stairwell (collected 4 x a day evidently), or the exits, until he's spoken to the Fire Officer. (or about confusing information about fire exits(s) or about the fire exit signage (where you follow the signage, on the floor you exit the stairwell, it doesn't show which way to turn in the corridor!). I know the manager was very busy doing year end figures, but really! REFUSING to tell or allow staff to tell where there are three possible exits, at least, rather than just the one where you came in, on the GROUND floor or sub basement!! Two other overnighters were rather relieved to know about the alternative ways out!

Nightingale Hospital

11, 19 Lisson Grove, Marylebone, London NW1 6SH, UK – 020 7535 7700

Expensive but our consultant was excellent and saw massive improvement over 3 weeks. Food very good, room comfortable.

Hammersmith Hospital

Du Cane Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 0HS, UK – 020 3313 1000

Former Patient at Auchi Dialysis department & now Renal Outpatients. Unbelievable one-to-one care by the nurses & healthcare assistants. A wealth of experience, knowledge and understanding of the complexities of the comprehensive umbrella that is Renal failure and it's after affect and reaction which runs in parallel by the consultants. All other members of staff which complete Hammersmith Hospital were plesent and always keen to assist in any way they could. All of the above is undertaken on a relative shoe-string budget which without doubt has a direct affect on these members of staff. The Trust need to focus their attentions on engaging on key members of staff when identifying areas of the business to improve and other areas to reduce funding. I have witnessed many areas which require attention to improve the efficiency of the business and reducing the lost man-hours. A large push on permanent recruitment needs to be spear-headed from the top of the trust down to the wards and department where they are required the most. This drive would without question, hesitation or restructuring would be an easy route to save money due to reduction on agency workers. The new prospective permanent members of staff would add not just economic value, but more stability and efficiency to the wards and departments which they will be posted at. Well done to everyone involved.

I went to this Hospital twice, and both times good , fast and professional service.Starting with receptionist very nice and helpful to the nurse,the best NHS service so far in London!

very different from the catholic church which is what i expected (this church came up dueing a search doe catholic churches) they worship mostly by singing. this past sunday they'd invited a speaker who read from exodus and spoke about it. then they sang some more bwdoee dismissing us.

Bella vista solo da fuori mentre cercavamo l'albergo

St Marylebone Church

17 Marylebone Rd, Marylebone, London NW1 5LT, UK – 020 7935 7315

A lovely place for peace and constipation. A stark contrast to the noise outside of one of the busiest roads in London.

I was married in this church 28years ago this year by the Rev. RICHARD MCLAREN. It was a beautiful church and our reception was downstairs in the Lemon Tree Restaurant. The entire service was beautiful, the Church was beautiful and Richard was a lovely man who joined us for the reception. It was a very memorable day.

Holy Trinity Brompton

Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW7 1JA, UK – 020 7052 0200

Tucked in behind the Catholic Church off the large main Brompton Road, bests this fabulous church welcoming all denominations. Home to Alpha, Marriage Course and many other wonderful ministries bringing our city and united. Passing through? Pick up a drink from their cafe and rest on a wooden bench in their peaceful garden.

Lively and welcoming church community, open to all, lots of fun and inspiring activities for all ages. Excellent coffee shop and bookshop. It doesn't matter if you're a believer or just curious... by the time you leave HTB your life will be changed for the better.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

68 Royal Hospital Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4HP, UK – 020 7352 4441

Very good experience. I had dinner at Pétrus about a year earlier and now finally decided to pull the trigger on Ramsay's "flagship", and it did not disappoint. Very friendly, open, non-stiff service with staff that is very happy to chat and joke. The Menu Prestige was impeccable and takes you on a journey of tastes without going overboard with the French delicacies. The restaurant is very low-key from outside and has a nice interior that is quiet enough even when the restaurant is full.

If the food is made of the the best products which were handled with care and brought to perfection by chefs who create art the only thing you can do better is the service. BUT the Service also is at the top. Discrete, polite but omnipresent. They make you feel special without feeling uncomfortable! It seems that they read your wishes before you have them! Some words about the food. We went to the restaurant for lunch and it was the best menu I ever had! An awesome world of flavours and combinations always aiming for highlighting on a mainpart. It was a dream wich came true. Hope we'll meet again soon!

Mustard Restaurant

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

Thanks to Emily and her team for catering for an excellent birthday party for me. Great food and service and it all went like clockwork. Was a great venue for a group, but also recommended for couples etc.

Enjoyed our meal here. I did find the restaurant slightly under staffed and so it took a while to order and for the food to arrive. When the food arrived it was tasty. It was quite quiet for a Friday night. More tables empty than full. They had a set menu which was £15.95 for 2 courses and £17.95 for 3 courses. Mains carried in price between about £12-22. Small selection of beer and wine by the glass, carafe or bottle. I would return and would recommend it.

Maze Restaurant

10-13 Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, London W1K 6JP, UK – 020 7107 0000

We had a fantastic evening at the weekend enjoying the dining experience at the Maze restaurant. We felt like we were in the thick of the action as our dining space was literally in the kitchen. It was amazing seeing all the chefs at work and seeing our beautiful plates of food being put together. The taster menu was delicious. Thank you to all the staff for making it truly memorable meal. Highly recommend xxx

My family always like to discover new and amazing places when going abroad. So when we flew in for a London conference from Canada, we knew we wanted to try Maze. It wasn't just good, it was sublime. The chef's menu was amazing. Our hostess, Anastasija, was cheerful, pleasant, knowledgeable, and made us feel really welcomed at the restaurant. Her positive attitude, the ambient atmosphere, and some of the best food we've eaten in our lifetimes form the memories that may stay with us forever. I definitely recommend Maze for an amazing evening.

The girl I look after has attended Minors Nursery School since September 2017 and she loves it. Everyday she is happy to go to school and I can see how comfortable she is with the Minors team. The teachers are very reliable, caring and professional. Often she comes home with her little arts and craft, which are nice and creative. The atmosphere with other parents and nannies is very friendly, too. Would definitely recommend this nursery school, it is fabulous.

A wonderful and caring nursery, my daughter loves it here. The teachers are very kind and always smiling : )

Bousfield Primary School

S Bolton Gardens, Kensington, London SW5 0DJ, UK – 020 7373 6544

This is an excellent school, it provides so many people with help and learning opportunities. I loved my teachers Mr Fox and Mrs Pears for the kind natured teaching skills . I struggled after leaving this school as other schools can't compare or care for my learning. Needs. Barn dances in the hall was one of my favourite times there. Thanks.

This is an amazing school, full of light, green spaces and playgrounds, set in a lovely neighbour. I have 2 kids there and I am so impressed by the way they are tough, and the children are so happy to go to school. Staff is knowledgeable, respectful and kind, the head teacher is clearly doing a great job!
