Barclays Bank

13 Station Parade, Kew Gardens, Richmond TW9 3PT, UK – 0345 734 5345

Fantastic staff, normally from the richmond branch. Unfortunately beside basic deposits and withdrawals you cant do much more at this branch so you have to go into Richmond or one of the other larger branches. It get busy all of a sudden and due to the limited number of staff you could be waiting around a while to get served. The opening and closing hours are restrictive something like 10am 2pm close but you should check that on barclays website as i wouldnt be surprised if the hours have changed recently.

This bank closes at 1:30pm

Building Societies

Nationwide

51 Broadway, London W13 9BP, UK – 0800 554 0214

I love this branch! The staff here are really helpful and kind also they take a lot of pride in there work. This branch is great for anxiety sufferers like myself as it is a small location with a small amount of staff.

However I would not rate the Nationwide experience as a whole at 5 stars, I would like to say that Vinnie from this particular branch was most helpful in resolving issues with opening a new account. Very kind and friendly individual. Thank you. Monika

Yorkshire Building Society

Friendly staff in a place which has practically always been devoid of other customers each time I have used it.

Quite nice for a bank!

Dental Surgeries

Perfect Smile Dental Surgery

64a Horn Ln, London W3 6NP, UK – 020 8993 2233

Everything went well and smooth. Friendly Staff, clean and nice environment. High quality dental services.

Warm friendly staff, receptionist Mary was absolutely amazing with good conversation and great at informing me about the up coming practice changes. Which was nice as I’m new to the area.

Strand on the Green Dental

60 Thames Rd, Chiswick, London W4 3RE, UK – 020 8995 0298

After waiting forever in NHS list, I found this nice dental practice, even they gave me a better price than the NHS dental practice!. It has been already 7 years I am with them. They are friendly, affordable prices and they give you a fast appointment in case of emergency. I would give a 5 star if the receptionists had a more friendly predisposition, if they smile a little more, it would be a bonus.

I recently had an appointment with Dr Kate Hughes and I have to admit it was the most outstanding experience I’ve ever had at a dental practice. I’ve had trouble for months with a clenched jaw due to stress at work and google shows me thatvtgisnpractice dona device which can help. It’s amazing, after a few weeks the pain has gone. Great practice and amazing result, can’t recommend more highly.

Sacoor Dental Acton

191 High St, London W3 9DD, UK – 020 8992 6681

My dentist at this practice is very kind, personable and tells me exactly what's going on with my teeth.. Nothing bad to say.

Incredible practice, I've been a patient since I was a child and Dr Sacoor has always been friendly and kind but more importantly she has taken very good care of my teeth over the years! Would recommend coming here in a heartbeat!

Roseneath Medical Practice

Mount Ararat Rd, Richmond TW10 6PA, UK – 020 3771 8962

Dr Soori is a fantastic practitioner who takes the time to understand her patients. She provides holistic care with a smile. Also her availability (in person or via email) is fantastic. Also the reception staff is welcoming and helpful.

Very much more in hope than expectation of an emergency appointment I rang Roseneath Medical Practice last Sunday at around 12.30p.m. I spoke with a very sympathetic and efficient receptionist and found myself - just over an hour later - sitting in Dr Soori's consulting room. Dr Soori was both empathetic and professional and took the time to give me useful, practical advice. She had arranged for a courier to be waiting to go immediately to the lab, hence accelerating my test results which were e-mailed to me the following evening. I was extremely impressed with the care I received and would not hesitate to return to the practice in future.

Crown Street Surgery

2 Lombard Court, 1-23 Crown St, London, Acton W3 8SA, UK – 020 8992 2010

I wanted to make a personal note of great thanks to Dr Sagar. I have an elderly widowed mother suffering from Dementia who was in great distress. I was trying to deal with her care situation remotely and spent in excess of 3 hours on the phone being passed from "pillar to post" by other NHS and social services agencies. Each agency made it very clear that they were not responsible and passed me the number of an alternative agency to call. Sometimes one i had already spoke to. However, I finally made contact with Dr Sagar who was a breath of fresh air. He was kind, courteous, attentive and most importantly of all extremely responsive. Within a couple of hours my mother was seen and various medical tests performed. Once I was able to clarify her medical condition the other agencies began to fall in to line and clarify the support she needed. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Sagar of the Crown Street surgery in Acton and my thanks for his excellent service.

I have been a patient at Crown Street for over 30 years and have always been treated quickly, kindly, with respect and any ailments solved satisfactorily. Their support throughout my cancer treatment 6 years ago was exemplary and continues today. I find the telephone appointment system works very well. Due to the volume of patients phoning in every morning, I may have to hang on the phone for sometime, BUT this is a small price to pay for an appointment on the day. Friends tell me they can't get same day appointments with their GP and the usual waiting time is a week or more, so we are well served at Crown Street I recommend this surgery very highly!

Hillcrest Surgery

Hillcrest Surgery, 337 Uxbridge Rd, London W3 9RA, UK – 020 8993 0982

Been going here for the past 25 years. Great surgery. Receptionists are patient, kind, professional and reassuring and doctors and management are 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.

Heartfelt service this morning. Sermon very gracious and eye opening about love and how we all wish to give and be kind and to receive love and kindness.

Acton Re-use and Recycling Centre

Stirling Rd, London W3 8DJ, UK – 020 8993 7580

Really helpful staff, even on a cold wet day happy to give advice and help carry heavy stuff

Small but works well, despite previous reviews to the contrary I found the staff to be friendly and helpful.

Townmead Road Re-use and Recycling Centre

Townmead Rd, Kew, 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!

EMR Brentford

4 Transport Ave, Brentford TW8 9HF, UK – 020 8847 2417

A great service and fantastic prices I have been dealing with them for more than few years

Great service and good prices paid.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. 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

Treviso Restaurant

94 Kew Rd, Richmond TW9 2PQ, UK – 020 8940 0033

Lovely place. Very unique (in a good way) decor, i had one of their specials, sea food linguine which was the best pasta i had in my life. I'm not usually a fan of pasta but this one was awesome. Tasted fresh and the seafood was prepared just right. Service is great. We had bottle of wine for the table and the waiter was perfect at spotting when out glasses were empty and came back each time to fill it up. I am definately going to return.

My fiancee and I have visited this place often, sometimes with friends. We've tried a large portion of the menu (including starters, pasta, mains, desserts) and haven't found a single dish that wasn't delicious. The place has a really lovely ambiance and friendly service. Besides the regular menu they always have daily specials, and they will always receive you with some home made bread and olive oil while you order.

La Buvette

6 Church Walk, Richmond TW9 1SN, UK – 020 8940 6264

Where to start? Just absolutely amazing. Both service and food were second to none. The early grey ice-cream was just divine! Will be back for sure.

Quiet French themed restaurant hidden away in the heart of Richmond. I thought the food was good and the price reasonable.

Côte Bistro - Richmond

24 Hill St, Richmond TW9 1TW, UK – 020 8948 5971

You can never go wrong at Cote. Food always tastes fresh and simply delicious. Go often enough you can accumulate points and rewards such as free glass of drink and or free starter and other great perks. Not a huge seafood (crab, octopus, lobster etc) fan but I can count on Cote to do me right with their calamari starter. Gluten free meals are prepared in a separate part of the kitchen so there is no chance of crossing which means Celiacs can eat and enjoy their meals with total and utter peace of mind. Richmond branch is small and cozy making for a great date place for dinning or brunching.

Food was delicious and the staff were really polite! Its a bit of a tight squeeze so if you have a buggy or wheelchair it might be tricky but otherwise it's a nice place with a good atmosphere. French onion soup was lovely but the goats cheese salad only had one bit of cheese in it which wasn't really enough to justify making the salad after it.

Both my daughters spent seven very happy years at Marshgate and look back at their primary school fondly. My eldest daughter started in 2003 and my youngest in 2006. As a family we have all been part of the wonderful Marshgate community that exists to this day.

My grandchildren both attended Marshgate School for all of their years in primary education. I thought they had a great education and the staff were always welcoming when ever I attended the many plays, choir and instrumental concerts that were held over the years. The children were happy at the school and sad to leave when it was time to move to secondary school.

Thomson House School
