Banks

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 :)

HSBC UK

Kings Mall, 21 King St, Hammersmith, London W6 0QF, UK – 0345 740 4404

Branch is full of helpful staff. I had a RV booked in the same week, and it took the diligent clerk 35mn to open my new bank account - while I had been literally begging over and over again at terrible HSBC Fulham Broadway branch for over 2 months. Problem solved = happy and relieved customer!

My wife and I moved to London from Australia and every other bank rejected us from opening a bank account because we didn’t have an utility bill as proof of address even though we had our tenancy agreement from a reputable real estate agent that showed our address. Santander came close but they wouldn’t allow us to open a joint account. It was a nice surprise and a relief when HSBC let us open a bank account AND a joint one without any issues. We were served by Adesope and his level of customer service was the best we’ve received in our 2 weeks in the UK so far!

NatWest Bank

2050, Ariel Way, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 7GE, UK – 0345 788 8444

Boutique version of a normal branch. Curved wall to the right accommodated cash withdrawal and deposit terminals. Straight forward to ask Receptionist who is available for an on the spot appointment. The desks and seats beyond the reception area are discreet and comfortable. Can get busy at the weekends. Opening hours are generous.

This branch is good but not for everything the one advantage it offers is to make payments into your account up to 10pm while the branch is closed the pay in machine is still operational. I tried to order a new cards from here while the branch was open but they don't offer a full service. I was waiting in a long cue which took around 25 mins only to leave within 1 min of being there. But I must say the staff there are great.

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

Nationwide

304-306 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, London W4 1NP, UK – 0800 554 0294

I visited Nationwide on Chiswick High Road today in order to set up internet banking and Sharon very kindly went through the procedure and set everything up for me. An absolutely outstanding service from Sharon, she was extremely polite and highly professional and I now have internet banking. First Class Service!! 10 out of 10.

I was given 5* service today by the branch manager Alistair. He went above and beyond to assist me, and gave outstanding customer service. It makes a pleasant change to be made to feel welcome by my local branch and I am far more likely to use more of the bank's products and services because of this experience.

Dental Surgeries

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.

Progressive Dentistry

34 Fulham High St, Fulham, London SW6 3LQ, UK – 020 7731 1162

I had lingual braces fitted to the social 6, and I am VERY glad that I decided to do it! I have been deliberating for years and was nervous about the whole thing, despite being a medic. The cosmetic result is great and I finally don't have to worry every time a photo is being taken. Dr Patel is very professional, caring and the team were brilliant. They took the time to discuss all my questions and provide the information I needed. I traveled up from the Guildford area for the appointments and I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the appointments were, and it wasn't a struggle to find parking. I was surprised at how little discomfort there was with the braces. I would highly recommend Progressive Dentistry for the social 6 lingual braces. Thank you so much!!

The whole team is very professional and reliable. I had lingual braces on for about 5 months to align my front teeth. The results are very quick and Dr Patel has always been gentle as well as his lovely assistant. It was never painful. I am happy with the results. Also, Paula, the receptionist is nice and helpful. I chose to have a hygiene appointment there and was very happy with the way I’ve been treated there too. I would definitely recommend this practise and would go again for future treatments.

Kings Dental Clinic (Hammersmith, Olympia)

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

The only reason why I'm visiting Kings Dental Clinic its because Dr Haider Razban I have been seeing Dr Haider since I was 17 years old and he is the one who only know how to create nice smile in my face when he done with my tooth even when I'm doing operation in my tooth outside the UK I always seek for his advise many thanks for DR Haider Razban and King Dental Clinic for keep my smile alive . Kind regards Tarek Alpatchatchi

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

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.

Dr R Jenkins - the Lilyville Surgery

630 Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 5RS, UK – 020 7736 4344

While it took a very long time for my registration to be processed with this practice, I have to say that I had one of the best GP interactions I've ever had with Dr Carthy this week. She was highly professional, hearing me out while demonstrating balance and a depth of knowledge and care in her advice.

Earls Court Medical Centre

248 Earls Ct Rd, Kensington, London SW5 9AD, UK – 020 7835 1455

Great Doctors and kind staff, very helpful, was able to get an appointment very quickly.

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.

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!

Barnes Hospital

South Worple Way, London, Barnes SW14 8SU, UK – 020 3513 3663

Helpful and friendly staff there. A spacious place and one could feel warmly received.

Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital

Du Cane Rd, White City, London W12 0HS, UK – 020 3313 1111

Outstanding; caring professionals. I have received the best care I could imagine on arrival of our son. The midwives in the centre were excellent and delivered our baby safely although the birth was not an easy one. Post natal care in the birth centre was excellent. Even after being discharged I could count on them and give a call to a birth centre to ask for an advice when needed. We are both very grateful to all staff of the birth centre.

I had my second baby via csection at the this hospital on the Stanley Clayton ward and the experience was amazing. Dee looked after me so well and gave me so much breastfeeding support and encouragement. She was always on call, treated me with respect and dignity at all times, and was just perfect. I also think she’s a little bit magic because despite having almost no labour signs and over a week before my due date she told me 3 hours before I went into labour that she had a feeling it would happen that night! All the midwifes were excellent and it was a completely different experience to the hospital I’d had my first baby at. There was always someone on call to help either myself or the baby and they were just all such nice people. I’ve doctored then one star for two reasons: - the finance department are a shambles. They won’t return your calls and despite ignoring at least 6 messages I’ve left they continue to send me letters about an outstanding amount (which my insurer has told me is them trying to overcharge and not to pay) - secondly, my baby was born with a suspected tongue tie and the midwifes arranged a specialist lady to come to the ward with a view to diagnosing. Well this woman was the rudest person I have ever come across. She came into the room eating which I thought was really unprofessional. Before my husband and I had even said hello she pointed at my ‘Pram’ and told me it was completely unsuitable for a newborn - I mean she really aggressively told us off about it (she wrongly thought our doona car seat was our Pram but didn’t give us time to correct her). She then examined our baby and said he might have a tongue tie, might not, it might need treating, might not. Just completely sat on the fence despite being specialist in the area. Then just as she was going my husband asked her a question just to clarify we understood the next steps to which she replied ‘weren’t you listening to what I just said?’ , my husband tried to rephrase the question to which she just said ‘well if you’d listened I already gave you the answer’ and marched off! Honestly it was utterly bizarre! I don’t think we were asking a stupid question because we had listened to her intently however even if we were, she could have shown some compassion that we were new to the whole tongue tie thing and had a baby less than 48 hours prior!.Anyway we ended up seeing a tongue tie practitioner local to us who was amazing and said it was a really obvious tongue tie (she couldn’t understand how it a specialist wouldn’t have instantly diagnosed it) and properly talked us through what it meant and our treatment options. It’s such a shame because the horrible woman was just so unlike anyone else we dealt with in our time at Queen charlottes. In hindsight I wish I’d put in a formal complaint but I just didn’t want anything to detract from the precious first days with our baby.

St. Jude's Church

24 Collingham Rd, Kensington, London SW5 0LX, UK – 020 7052 0573

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

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Côte Brasserie - Parsons Green

Woolverstone House, 45-47 Parsons Green Ln, Fulham, London SW6 4HH, UK – 020 7736 8444

very good value for the area lunch time menu. highly recommended.

Breakfast deal is good value. Nice place to eat and chill. Great staff

Côte Bistro - Kensington

47 Kensington Ct, Kensington, London W8 5DA, UK – 020 7938 4147

I love Cote. A firm favourite. It always feels way better than it costs. Atmosphere, interior design and food all good. Great value.

This chain is fantastic. Salads and asparagus were excellent. Sadly let down by very poor rump steak that was very very tough. Certainly not worth the extra £2.50.

Bill's Hammersmith Restaurant

10 Hammersmith Grove, Hammersmith, London W6 7AP, UK – 020 8741 1898

We were visiting London this weekend and we were located in Hammersmith. We looked for a nice restaurant where to have an authentic English breakfast and found Bill's. The place is really classy, nice decorated and the staff are very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend either the Bills breakfast or the Vegetarian breakfast, both are huge to start a touristic day without being hungry two hours later. The prices are not expensive at all considering the location, food quality and personnel. I would definitely go and have my breakfast everyday there.

Espresso based drinks are over extracted. Milk only slightly overfrothed. Atmosphere is good. Waitstaff attentive. Desert looked good. Mint tea was leafy.

Nursery and Preschools

Bright Horizons Holland Park Day Nursery and Preschool

Chiswick Nursery & Pre-school Academy

4 Marlborough Rd, Chiswick, London W4 4ET, UK – 020 8742 0011

My son loves Chiswick Nursery! He receives excellent care here and the facilities are top notch.

Bright Horizons Chiswick Park Day Nursery and Preschool

Evershed Walk, Chiswick, London W4 5BW, UK – 020 3780 3054

This is a wonderful school, I could not ask more of them. The staff is always friendly, the facility is always clean and in good repair, and best of all the teachers treat each child as an individuals.

I feel safe leaving my children at this nursery. The staff really do care about the children and I feel that their needs are being met emotionally, educationally and socially. They keep me informed about everything, even minor incidents. They have a sensible Calpol policy, giving it when needed with the permission of a parent so I don't have to go running to pick the kids up each time a new tooth comes through and causes a bit of a temperature. There is a very low turnover of staff so the children see the same faces each day and get to know and love their key carers. They all seem to have a very good level of training. The activities are fun and educational and I'm so pleased to see the way my son has developed from a shy baby into a confident toddler here. The only downside is the price, which is high by anyone's standards, and with two children it is actually cheaper to get a nanny. However my son is so happy at Teddies that I decided it was worth it even with two as a nanny would never be able to give the attention to both children individually in the way they are cared for here.

Primary and Secondary Schools

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!

Sulivan Primary School

Fulham, London SW6 3BN, UK – 020 7736 5869

Kind of cheeky posting a review before my granddaughter is given a place here. She's staying in Broomhouse Rd, a few yards away so it's super convenient. It looks a similar size to her current school with a much nicer outdoor space. How come no one else has written any reviews about whether the food, teachers or after school activities are any good.

Good school.
