I wish him many many years of good health as I'm planning to take my car there for the rest of my life... 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣

I had been a patient of Mr Cheggar for over 20 years. Despite moving to Buckinghamshire I have decided to return to Mr Cheggar as I know he won't let me down. In the last couple of years I have had three teeth removed and I know that had I been Mr Cheggars patient he would have saved them. I am now back there and and have total faith in his care.

So happy with my dental treatment, thank you to Dr Baig and her assistant Banita who done and awesome job with my crowns and treatment. Reception staff very helpful and kind, brilliant staff all round.

Highly professional staff at every level, a caring atmosphere and everybody helpful in every way. Thank you for great service.

South Ealing Dental Practice

81 S Ealing Rd, London W5 4QR, UK – 020 8914 8226

All the staff were very friendly from the receptionist to the dentist and her assistant. The dentist was extremely friendly and put me at ease. I advised the dentist I wasn't looking forward to the scale and polish and she promised to be gentle and she was. It was the first time I've been able to have top and bottom cleaned in one go, I usually take a break half way round.

Great experience! I had my wisdom tooth removed today. My doctor was fabtastic. He put me at ease, explained the procedure and made sure I was ok throughout my visit. I would also like to thank the amazing reception staff that greeted me with smiles and offered help today. I will definitely come back!

Dr Jezierski & Partners

Sheen Lane Health Centre, Sheen Lane, London, East Sheen SW14 8LP, UK – 020 8876 3901

Grove Park Terrace Surgery

25 Grove Park Terrace, Chiswick, London W4 3JL, UK – 020 8630 1680

I changed to this surgery about four years ago as it was getting very difficult to get appointments at my previous local surgery. I have been pleasantly surprised by how much easier it's been to get appointments without long waits. Apart from one locum doctor, all the GPs I've seen have ranged from good to excellent. I feel well looked after by them and the admin/reception staff are very good too.

Was on medical school placement here and was very impressed with the skill and professionalism of all of the staff who worked here when observing clinics as part of my learning.

The Florence Road Surgery Dr Evans & Partners

26 Florence Rd, London W5 3TX, UK – 020 8567 2111

Amazing, loving and caring doctors, immediately available for my 8 months old son. Not only, receptionists are really nice and kind. It's a big surgery with lots of patients and many doctors, so far we've seen two doctors and a nurse and they were all truly professional, kind and explaining clearly what we needed to know. I can say with my 12 years random experience about gp practices, these guys are so far the best! Truly pleased!

This practice is excellent. It is well organised and responsive to patients' needs. I never have difficulty in getting an appointment and always feel that the doctors, other medical and support staff listen carefully and are very helpful.

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.

Ealing Hospital

Uxbridge Rd, Southall UB1 3HW, UK – 020 8967 5000

Had surgery there back in February. Long wait. Friendly nurse there. Groovy.

Ealing hospital is much better than Hillingdon hospital. Their receptionist are courteous and polite n good doctors. Though the waiting time is bit longer I think it's because of the amount of patients.otherwise I would rate it 5🌟

West Middlesex University Hospital

Twickenham Rd, Isleworth TW7 6AF, UK – 020 8560 2121

Attended the A & E Thurday a.m. Fantastic. My elderly mum was extremely well cared for in a unit that was under pressure from a high level of incidents. All her immediate needs were dealt with in a caring and very professional manor. The staff were so kind both doctors and nurses kept us informed. With the volume of people they treat they always managed a smile. Well done and thank you NHS in such circumstances where your department is so over stretched.

Good Clean hospital A& E can be very busy 3 plus hours. Consultants can be very busy with long waiting time. Car park can be busy. If you can get parked. Allow plenty of time to park. Bus service to hospital is good

BMI Syon Clinic

941 Great West Rd, Brentford TW8 9DU, UK – 020 8322 6000

I've never known a doctor to give such a thorough assessment and write up, where even the specialist commented on the completeness of it. And done on a Sunday, shortly before closing, on a Bank Holiday weekend. After family anecdotal accounts of GP's who proscribe antibiotics for throat cancer (saying it's the flu!), supplying the most casual diagnosis, and one advising what turned out to be a homeopathy remedy, Syon Park is an refreshing change. And worth every penny for the peace of mind, let alone providing a essential path for further treatment. Note to Syon Park - Whilst all your staff are excellent; friendly and efficient -- the doctor we saw on Sunday 30th April was amazing. She is an absolute credit to profession.

The GP here is lovely very friendly and caring. Highly recommend.

Small when compared to Greenford & doesn't accept certain stuff like rubble but efficient enough & the staff are pretty friendly. Be warned: they often make last entry 15 minutes before actual closing time.

Not very friendly staff, but we'll organised

Townmead Road Re-use and Recycling Centre

Townmead Rd, Richmond TW9 4EL, UK – 020 8876 3281

Overall this place is good, but can be very busy a lot of the time. I use it fairly regularly as it's my closest recycling point. I find it is easy to use, with most things clearly signed and when I haven't been able to find the right area, staff working there have been polite and helpful. The site is a big improvement on the muddy dump it was before. The main improvement I would like is a better traffic system that means I can get out once I'm finished, without being blocked by the queue of cars waiting to get in. For those reviewers who complain about the staff tearing open the black bags. This done to ensure the highest amount of waste is recycled, as some users just want to dump and run. And no I'm not related to, or friends with anyone working there.

I both live and work in west London disposing of both commercial and domestic waste at Townmead Road. As such I have extensive experience of commercial waste disposal and, without doubt, Townmead is by far the best of these facilities. The service is quick and the staff are always polite and friendly. It also amazes me that anyone should complain with first world comments such as 'there is a queue'. Get real mate, you don't know how lucky you are!

Great service and good prices paid.

The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Hounslow

Pizza Express

Lion House, Red Lion St, London TW9 1RE, UK – 020 8948 7460

You can't really go wrong with Pizza Express it's a good price and the food is lovely. The Richmond one has a pleasant layout with lots of space so you can always get a table whenever. The night we were there they had some live music, a lady singing with a gentleman on guitar. The ambience was good and suited the meal.

Had the 7th birthday party for my son on Sunday. The service was great, despite the fact the kids were very noise, Charlie, our waiter, was very patient and attentive. I would give 5* but I was very disappointed as I had a birthday cake and one of the managers offered to slice the cake for us as they couldn't give us a knife because of health and safety, understandable, but when I took the cake back it was literally smashed, I hardly could put it on the plate for guests, I was very embarrassed serving them the smashed cake or better said "the mashed cake"

Chianti London

131 Uxbridge Rd, London W13 9AU, UK – 020 3802 3124

What a great find! This beautiful Italian restaurant turned out to be the best place in London I've found for proper Italian food at reasonable prices. I ordered a lasagna with garlic bread and both were incredibly good. In fact the lasagna was so good that I ordered a pepperoni pizza to go and that turned out to be amazing as well! Their prices are very good compared to other Italian restaurants in nearby Ealing Broadway. They use fresh ingredients and you can really taste the difference. The deep, rich flavor one craves in Italian food is often elusive in many restaurants but you can definitely find it here. The owner is very friendly and we had a great chat. The interior is decorated beautifully with lovely Italian paintings and large photos of the gorgeous Italian countryside and the canals of Venice. The music is wonderful as well, with melodic Italian classics that provide the best atmosphere. It was easy to imagine that I was in a restaurant in the heart of Italy. The highest recommendation!

Good food at fair prices and friendly staff

Thames Restaurant

Brentford TW8 8AQ, UK – 020 8758 2818

Great quality all you can eat food reasonable prices . The staff are helpful & food is really tasty. The restaurant is very clean & it has Fresh Tepernyaki cooked to order. The dessert section has good quality sweet selection. I will return for sure. Thank you for great dinner.

Nothing special! Food quality low, at least its all you can eat! You'll get what you pay for! We had 2 mojito which we couldn't drink no crushed ice!!!

Nursery and Preschools

Chiswick Nursery & Pre-school Academy

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

Chiswick Park Day Nursery and Preschool

Evershed Walk, Chiswick, London W4 5BW, UK – 0333 920 0404

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.

Bright Horizons Grena Road Day Nursery and Preschool

2 Grena Rd, Richmond TW9 1XS, UK – 020 3780 3065

A larger nursery then some of the other local ones but our kids love it!!! Super friendly staff with which both the parents and children have a great relationship.

Ashton House School

50-52 Eversley Cres, Isleworth TW7 4LW, UK – 020 8560 3902

This is a excellent school! All the teachers have been working hard and this is reflected in the quality of learning the children have received and in their attainment. My son looked forward to school everyday. It is a very safe environment and any sort of bullying is immediately addressed and is not tolerated.

Great school. I'm a former student myself and I would recommend this school for children of any ability. Very good learning environment and encouraging teachers. Ashton House will bring out the best of you.

Clifton Lodge Preparatory School & Nursery

8 Mattock Ln, London W5 5BG, UK – 020 8579 3662

My son arrived at Clifton Lodge from a not so good school. We wanted a mixed-gender, happy school, and Clifton Lodge provides just that. What we did not expect was the strength in depth of both teaching and support, tailored to the particular needs of each child. Parents who wish to are able to get involved with each other and the school - there is a strong sense of community at Clifton Lodge. We trust the headmaster (Dr Thamia) and his team to do their very best by our children. He has always made himself available to answer our queries we may have and has dealt with any occasional issues our son mat have faced. We cannot imagine a better environment for my son to start his education and development. We are only sorry he missed out on the original starting years. I recommend this school without any hesitation. The extra circular activities are excellent and the English lesson, like all the other subjects are taught with such passion. Its is lovely to watch our son grow with knowledge, maturity and confidence. Thank you. Clifton Lodge. Helpful? I have been a parent at Clifton Lodge School for a good few years, four years precisely to be exact. I found the school to be a quaint, friendly, caring full of laughter and study of exhilarating lessons. The school is full of inspirational subjects empowering all the children who attend. The teachers are all approachable and display an attitude of compassion to every child in any year. My son who currently attends arrived from a not so good school but quickly gained confidence and friends at Clifton Lodge. The Science, History and Geography plus the extra circular activities are excellent while English, which is a dominant subject for my son is taught with a sincere passion. This inspires my son to do better, and to achieve which he does and has! Thank you Clifton Lodge for all your hard input and support.

My child was there for two whole years and yet described it as the most exhilarating experience in his whole life. He enjoyed every single moment there. The teachers were always there to help and were extremely kind. He described the teachers as hilarious at times and could never wait to go back the next day. It is appalling to see such negative reviews on this school from some people. Every aspect of Clifton Lodge is fantastic. The education they provide is outstanding and the teachers work to core to help all the children. My child was in the school play and when we got home described himself as heart-broken due to the fact it was last year. He was sad as he didn't feel he spent as much time with his friends as he would have liked to. However he then added, "if it wasn't for Clifton Lodge they wouldn't have been my friends in the first place." This was truly an example of how Clifton Lodge is one of the best schools the country can offer. He also described it as a big family and everyone always looked out for each other.
