Nice friendly staff, good location

Seems decent

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

Local Chambers of Commerce for SW5 9JT. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

Chelsea Old Town Hall is an oasis of calm and quietness along the King's Road. The library is a welcome setting for retreating too. There is a great section in the library for children too.

Exceptional service, facilities and Registrars. Couldn't of asked for anything more for our special day. Lisa & Patricia made it what it was and are brilliant at what they do!

Paddington Dental Practice

17 Craven Rd, Paddington, London W2 3BP, UK – 020 7723 6106

Don't really leave reviews but i just had to this time because credit is due when deserved and the service from Dr Gursharon Dhariwal was 1st class. I'm not a fan of any medical professions because they scare the life out of me but she made me feel so at ease and calm I was so thankful. Thank you again Doc!

I can’t recommend this practice enough. Treatment is world class and staff are very helpful and kind. I no longer dread the dentist!

Bupa Dental Care Chelsea

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!

Royal Brompton Hospital

Sydney St, Chelsea, London SW3 6NP, UK – 020 7352 8121

I have been admitted twice for surgery at RBH and each time their service is amazing. Both outpatients and inpatient care delivery are of high standards, the staff and consultants were easy to talk to and responsive to my queries and concerns. Now that my heart is fixed, I might take on the joke of my lovely surgeon, Dr. Michael Rigby, to join the London marathon.🤞🏻Thank you so much to all the staff of Royal Brompton Hospital!

My 3 years old son had sleeping study at this hospital on Monday 12/02/2018. It was my first visit. We received an excellent care by doctors and nurses. Nurse's particaly were amazing and they have done everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much for your amazing work. Well done!

Amazing hospital and if you have Dr Faris as your surgeon you’ll be in great hands. He performed my surgery which was complicated, but he is an amazing surgeon and it was so successful. Back on my feet in no time! Hey

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

369 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 9NH, UK – 020 3315 8000

Yesterday I cut myself badly enough to warrant a trip to A & E. There was a bit of a wait, as it was VERY busy for the day and time (but I was just happy to have an A & E that was open and well run!). However, all staff were friendly, helpful and professional and the waiting room itself was clean, modern, airy and comfortable. The young Dr that helped me was wonderful! He was cheery, confident and very kind. He patched me up and filled me with confidence that things would be fine. Well done him and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital!

On the first day of a 2 week trip to England I ended up in Urgent Care of the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital with my 82 year old mother. She had taken a bad fall and needed to be examined and treated before we could continue our travels. The nurses, doctors and x-ray techs were friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They provided expedient and top notch care. When the other travelers in our group asked about our experience with NHS I let them all know that the services we received at this hospital was as good as, if not better and more timely, than what I have experienced in similar circumstances at home in the USA.

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 Thomas of Canterbury

60 Rylston Rd, Fulham, London SW6 7HW, UK – 020 7385 4040

We have lived nearby for nearly 2 years now and will be moving away from St Thomas in the next few months. What will we do? We intend to commute via bus because this is simply the best Church for us. Father Oscar and Father Dennis are insightful, friendly and offer intelligent sermons, prayers and stories. The congregation vary from babies to elderly and each and every person is very warm and inviting. Aesthetically the space is beautiful, always garnered with beautiful flower arrangements. To experience mass here is always pleasure, I would encourage anyone and everyone to come.

A "cathedral" hidden within Fulham. Sometimes, the flowers arranged there are a Heavenly sight to behold! The flowers today,Easter Sunday, were fantastic.

Western Riverside Waste Authority Recycling Facility

Smugglers Way, London SW18 1JS, UK – 020 8871 2788

Pretty quick despite the queue. No charge (but no vans allowed). Drive to the far end to park, the queue comes from everyone taking the first available space and blocking everyone behind them.

I came here to leave a car battery and water filter. There was no queue on Thursday morning. The place seems to be clean and well organised. I was happy to find out that it is possible to recycle pc monitors, clothes, furniture and water filters. The gentleman at the entrance was very helpful. Hence, five stars for this place.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

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

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。

My wife and I went to Restaurant Gordon Ramsay for our anniversary and it was a very enjoyable experience. It was our first visit to a 3-Michelin starred restaurant, we both decided to go for the menu Prestige and ordered wines based on recommendations. The food was exceptional and we savoured every dish. The highlight for us were the ravioli of lobster and I also loved the Cotswold lamb dish. The service was very good, waiters and waitress there were very attentive but not in your space. Our meals lasted 4 hours, it cost us quite a bit but I think it was worth the experience.

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.

Medlar Restaurant

438 King's Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 0LJ, UK – 020 7349 1900

Food was very good, although not as dizzyingly high as some reviews might suggest. Perhaps, being a Monday, the top chefs are not in the house? The waiters were wonderful and engaging. The venue is very nice. I would definitely go back, as I think there is more to come from the food.

In my option Medlar is good quality ingredients cooked well, but nothing taste or combination wise that will excite the adventurous diner. I feel it’s aimed at the old school rich diner that doesn’t want extravagant flavours, just hearty food done perfectly. I personally like to spend my money in a place that is exciting and provides me with new taste experiences. Feed back - sommelier only made one suggestion when we asked for his advice and went straight to the top of the price range we’d suggested. I expect a couple of suggestions price and style wise and to be asked what I’m eating if they are to make a suitable suggestion. Raw scallop starter was tiny, unnecessarily so Our wine glasses kept being overfilled.

Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy

Dolphin House, Riverside West,, Smugglers Way, Wandsworth,, London SW18 1DE, UK – 020 8877 1135

My son has recently started the nursery in the toddler room, really friendly environment very resourceful and captivating. The room is very inviting including staff. Management seem very efficient and caring as myself and my wife have been extremely anxious about leaving our child with his specific needs. The new manager Evelyn Herrera is extremely approachable and I already feel at ease with her around. My wife explains she was also very reassured by her with our child's specific needs. I appreciate all there hard work especially in the last few weeks and continue to support as they continue to flourish.

Our daughter has been going to busy bees wandsworth since she turned 1 and she is very happy there. The staff are all very friendly ,caring and absolutely great with the kids. The nursery has recently been refurbished inside and outside and looks fantastic, with nice big playrooms, brand new toys and a nice big outside space.

Bousfield Primary School

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!

Glendower Preparatory School

86/87 Queen's Gate, Kensington, London SW7 5JX, UK – 020 7370 1927

The school was started in 1895 by Miss Lloyd and Miss Cornwall at 103A Fulham Road. At that point the school, known as the Cornwall and Lloyd School, shared premises with Dunn and Co the hatters and The Sports Motor Car Co. At some point between 1902 and 1918, the school moved to 5 Glendower Road and changed its name to Glendower School. After 2 years in Glendower Road, the school relocated once more, this time to 25 - 27 Cromwell Road. The school remained at this site from 1920 until 1939 when the Second World War forced an evacuation to Devon. Glendower moved into 87 Queen’s Gate in 1947 where it has remained with some extension and expansion until the present day.

In The 70's great school years!
