Banks

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 :)

Al Rayan Bank

77-79 Edgware Rd, London W2 2HZ, UK – 020 7479 1030

A good bank.

Very friendly staff. Nice bank .good halal products.

Town Hall

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

Dental Surgeries

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!

Dental Magic - Cambridge Court

Cambridge Court Dental Centre, 4 Sussex Gardens, Paddington, London W2 1UL, UK – 020 7262 3334

It is always a pleasure to walk into Cambridge Court Dental Centre with the knowledge that you will receive a warm and sympathetic greeting and if necessary to have any problems sorted out. The entrance and downstairs are beautifully clean and bright and you are again greeted by the Assistant to the Dentist taking you to the treatment room room.I rate the Dentist who dealt with my problem last and previous visits is so experienced and reassuring one is immediately relaxed. The best Dentist in all my 85 years. Thank you Cambridge Court Dental Centre.

I’ve been to Cambridge Court Dental a few times. Margarita is excellent at making you feel comfortable when you’re at the dentist. She doesn’t make you feel bad and gives you good advice going forward. All my procedures were very thorough and pain free. She’s an absolute gem and I’m very glad to have met her!

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.

Doctorcall - 24 Hour Private Visiting Doctor

121 Harley St, Marylebone, London W1G 6AX, UK – 0344 257 0345

Really impressed with the service which I have received. The doctor was great and very knowledgeable.

Expert and polite doctor saw my mother was seriously ill and needed to be taken to hospital. That action alone probably saved her life. Her suspicion of a chest infection/ pneumonia as major cause also proved to be correct .

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

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

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.

A U. S. tourist staying in a hotel near Paddington--shortly after 8 a.m. on a Friday I found the clinic online, and I was able to book an appointment for 9:30 A.M. that day. The clinic is inside a high-rise building near the train station. Once inside and after circumnavigating the elevators, the receptionist and doctor were very friendly and waiting for me in a pristine clean area. I received good professional treatment, and was in and out with my much-needed antibiotic in less than 20 minutes: 55 pounds for the 15-minute appointment, plus 10 pounds for filling the prescription for me 'on the spot.' I was certainly pleased with the rapid response and good care that I received.

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

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!

Probably one of the best. Considering it’s NHS you could mistake it for being private. Some of the best consultants here, up to date with the very latest technology, some amazing stuff they do here. My only criticism would be after procedures in the ward, there are very few staff compared to a general hospital, buts that’s down to government cut backs. Appointments get changed a lot, this again I would say to lack of staff. Staff are very friendly, not found them to be unfriendly as some have suggested, and I have been coming here for around 3 years on regular visits. Keep up the good work😊👍

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

Consistently good experiences here. Friendly and knowledgable staff throughout. The building is maze-like, so allow yourself some extra time when visiting! The Drexciyan subway was a nice surprise.

My clinic has just been moved here from Charing Cross hospital. First impressions were that Hammersmith Hospital is a lot older building, and it wasn't very clear how to get to Outpatients from the reception entrance. After some accurate directions from a security man, I found where I needed to be. Check in is by touch screen and gives information on where to sit. The announcement system to call patients is very good. It combines a voice message, with a large screen display telling you which room to go to. Seating was comfortable and well laid out. Appointments were running around 30 minutes late, but at least there are white boards showing the expected delay and these are updated frequently. Much better than any other hospital I've been to. Waiting time for a blood test was very long. I took number 49 when 25 was shown on the screen. I waited around 40 minutes to be seen. It is sensible to use that time to book your next appointment. Queueing again was rather long. This time around 15 minutes. I got the impression that the staff were trying their best to provide a good service. They appeared to be working as quickly as possible, but the computer systems in operation seem to be slow and cumbersome to enter data into. One fact that wasn't dealt with, was that although there was a water dispenser available, the cups had run out. Next time I'll take a bottle to fill up. Parking is available at the front of the hospital, but I'm not sure what it's like as I used a scooter to travel there. There is dedicated solo motorcycle parking by the entrance, and also cycle racks. Both are convenient and free to use. The nearest tube station is East Acton and there are bus services running right outside the hospital. I know one route goes via Shepherd's Bush and Hammersmith.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

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.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

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

I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant, which is my favourite in the world. The food (flavour, creativity, presentation) is of the highest calibre, the staff is well informed, kind and attentive, the atmosphere is elegant yet calm and intimate due to the small number of tables, and everything is impeccable- right down to the pristine kitchen to which I was pleased to be offered a visit... it’s absolutely perfect in every way.

This place is simply amazing and the food... oh...my...god! I didn't know it was possible for food to taste that good. Classy, delicious and not a bad price considering what you actually get. I highly recommend a tasting menu if they have one on

Côte Bistro - Kensington

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

Visited for my husband's 30th birthday to have a delicious breakfast to start off our busy day. All opted for the breakfast meal deal which is great value. Eggs were cooked perfectly and the hollandaise sauce was fantastic. Will definitely keep Côte in mind next time we are near one and fancy a nicer breakfast than normal!

We prebooked lunch on a very busy Saturday. The staff coped very well with plenty of smiles and assistance with menu choices. We shared a bottle of house white wine, it was very good. The lunch time special of half roast chicken with sliced potatoes and green beans was very tasty. The lemon sorbet was a light and refreshing dessert. Good value for money and would recommend. Only negative would be very tight on space.
