Excellent service today from Tom! I tried to switch over my account on the phone for the past 2 hours - no luck! I pop into the branch 10 minutes before closing and Tom was on hand to help. Did it all within 15 minutes and didn't mind staying late. Thank you!

Excellent service today! Just moved over from HSBC and the staff who helped me with an internet card reader were fantastic. The branch itself has just been redone and looks great! Thank you!

Local Chambers of Commerce for SW1A 2HB. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
The Old Marylebone Town Hall

Beautiful place to celebrate a wedding! The rooms are wonderful, such great panelling and ceiling details. The Westminster room is particularly special. It gives a certain gravitas to the very special occasion. The registrars were absolutely perfect presenting the ceremony with a perfect balance of humour and seriousness. We shared in a very special occasion at a great place. We were also reminded of an lovely occasion at this location when we came to register our sons births!

Great weddings here

Camden Town Hall

Judd St, London WC1H 9JE, UK – 020 7974 4444

Efficient, organised and friendly. The staff were cheerful and quickly got my certificate sorted. Security answered my questions politely and were helpful.

The staff are lovely here. You know they're busy but they're always courteous and help you out as much as they can. I had a number of questions that I asked both online and in person and was always happy with the responses I got. The only thing that could use some improving is their website - some things aren't too easy to sort online and I had to email them, but got a call back and when dealing with the same issue in person they got everything sorted for me right there and then.

Dental Surgeries

Victoria Dental Centre

330 Vauxhall Bridge Rd, Westminster, London SW1V 1AA, UK – 020 7834 6161

I have been with this Dental Surgery for 25 years. I believe it is simply the best Dental Surgery in South West London and the West End. The staff, from the Dentists to the (absolutely brilliant) hygienist Ruth Duckworth and the lovely receptionists, it is always a pleasant experience going to VDS (and I usually HATE going to the dentists for treatment). I would recommend this Surgery to anyone. They also do both NHS and Private dental treatment which is a blessing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Best dental care in London. Really good service. So happy I found a good dentist even in London, coming from Slovakia and Czech republic, where the dental care is amazing, it was shocking for me to see the standard level of dental care in the UK, which was very below my expectations. Thankfully, Victoria Dental Care saved me. I go to Spiros - he's quite a funny Greek guy, I recommend him.

Hermes London Dental Clinic

205 Vauxhall Bridge Rd, Pimlico, London SW1V 1ER, UK – 020 7233 7660

I very professional and welcoming clinic which I have now visited a number of times. The staff are very efficient and, where possible, always try to work appointments to your schedule. The location is perfect as it is a few minutes walk from Victoria main line and underground stations. Great service that comes with a smile :)

Really happy, and without doubt the best hygienist experience I’ve ever had by a very long way. Terza was utterly thorough, highly dexterous and skilled, and I’m extremely happy with the results she achieved. No hesitation in recommending Hermes and Terza. Thank you!

Bupa Dental Centre Holborn

Lion Court, 3 Procter St, London WC1V 6NY, UK – 020 7242 7212

Have always had great service. Other dentists recommended various expensive treatments, but Holborn has never tried to upsell me

I came to the BUPA dental centre Holborn earlier this year (2017) to enquire about Invisalign treatment after reading about Graham Tinkler's work online. With other consultations at other orthodontists and dental clinics, I was met with either a lot of doubt, lack of experience, or a very bog standard approach without much flexibility on payment or practice. Which didn't really put me at ease considering the universal cost of Invisalign. I also wanted somewhere that shared my enthusiasm in obtaining the best smile possible - I found that with Graham Tinkler and BUPA dental centre Holborn. I'd wanted to have invisalign for years but never made the jump, but Graham's knowledge, personable character and dedication to a bespoke experience made the decision easy. Dani and the front desk staff are also lovely and very helpful - I am now a week or so into my Invisalign treatment and looking forward to the outcome. Keep up the good work guys!

Dentists

Mint Dental Centre

41 Clapham Rd, London SW9 0JD, UK – 020 7587 0100

Easily the best dentist in London! The staff are so unbelievably friendly, efficient and helpful. I’ve been having check ups here for around 4 years and last year I had braces fitted with them. Antonio provided me with great advice and a personalised program, and I am thrilled with the results. I am now pregnant and again their treatment has been excellent. If you dislike going to the dentist, then I can promise you that they make the experience much more enjoyable!

Lovely practice, clean and modern. The staff very professional with a friendly approach. Appointments always available no lengthy wait and reasonable prices. Definitely a good dentist!

The Dentist Gallery

20 Rochester Row, Westminster, London SW1P 1BT, UK – 020 3744 0904

I clearly fear dentist but Jerome is super nice, make me very confortable. Also it doesn't smell like a usual dentist, all the equipement looks really new. I'll definitely go back here next time I need to go to a dentist !

Perfect experience ! Highly recommended. Easy to book, great staff and doctors.

Dentist @ W2

3-4 Norfolk Pl, Paddington, London W2 1QN, UK – 020 3773 8664

I am a new patient to the practice and am extremely impressed. I would highly recommend this service. My dentist was very thorough and made me feel completely relaxed and confident. He explained the treatment plan in detail and completed the first part of the plan swiftly and professionally. I will be returning as a regular patient as I was made to feel welcome and the practice is very welcoming and friendly. Thanks guys xxx

Very professional. The doctor explains all procedures very kindly. He took me even without the previous booking as an emergency case. It made my life so much easier.

The Neaman Practice

15 Half Moon Ct, London EC1A 7HF, UK – 020 7600 9740

Found registering very easy and one of the reception staff was able to get a cancellation so I could see the doc quicker. Seem to have had a different experience than a lot of people reviewing.

Brilliant doctors and wonderfully helpful reception staff. I would thoroughly recommend this surgery. Sadly with Government cuts they are now under more pressure than when I originally joined the practice round 7 years ago. However the staff and doctors are respectful, diligent and thorough. The best surgery Ive attended by far.

London Doctors Clinic

3.7, 344-354 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8BP, UK – 020 8712 9378

Amazing service. Highly skilled professional, caring and empathic, quick appointment, zero wait, affordable rate. Saw Dr. Mookhtadir Ansar at King’s Cross location and am thoroughly impressed. Have never written review for a doctor before but feel compelled after visit with him. Highly recommend him.

It's really easy to book appointments online. All doctors I've seen here have been very professional and helpful. For what you pay it's a great service.

This chapel is just lovely, and everyone is so kind and welcoming to visitors. The visitors center is interactive and engaging, and the sunday services are even more phenomenal! I can't wait to come back again soon!

Unit 15426, Box 6945 Rathbone Square, Rathbone Pl, Fitzrovia, London W1A 6US, UK – 01684 252583

I run the IT department for a large law firm (500+ desktops) and we use Surplex as the service is always fast and the drivers friendly and helpful. We like to charity donations this company make and also the data policy is first class. We have used them for about five years now and I don't think we will ever move away to someone else - there is no need. I don't normally write reviews but Surplex asked me too and, to be honest, I was only too happy to help as they've always bent over backwards to accommodate my requirements.

I have used Surplex for our IT / computer recycling from both their London office and their HQ in Malvern. They are professional, speedy and their reporting is first class. The online aspect of retrieving documentation is both fast and secure. We have a particular need for data security which is why we use Surplex, they do not wipe like some other companies we have used they actually shred hard disk drives and in fact any that carries data is treated in the same manner. Mark, the MD, is very knowledgeable and completely down to earth.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Whitehall

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。

BEST dining experience EVER! Awesome food & friendly service! Excellent variety, moderately priced. Fresh home cooked food. Warm and inviting! Thank YOU!

Kitchen Table

70 Charlotte St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 4QQ, UK

If you don't give this place 5 stars, you are mad! Kitchen Table is such a fantastic culinary experience and the absolute best food you will ever eat, paired ever so perfectly with the most lovely wines. If you are a super picky eater, perhaps it's not for you, but if you're happy to try anything and everything (allergies, of course, catered for), this place is amazing! Even things I am not normally keen on, I loved here. And, what a fantastic insight to the happenings of a Michelin starred kitchen. Expensive? Maybe. But an experience you will certainly never forget.

Excellent, for sure. Good value? Not even vaguely. Shockingly expensive, actually. Inventive? Somewhat - one truly memorable course. Curiosity satisfied, but wouldn't recommend for the money, or go back.

Ormer Mayfair

Flemings Mayfair, 7-12 Half Moon St, Mayfair, London W1J 7BH, UK – 020 7016 5601

I love this place. Have been here a number of times for lunch, evening meal and, in the hotel, it's self afternoon tea. Very nice food and wine at reasonable prices for the standard of food and the setting. Modern European food of a very high quality. Great friendly knowledgeable staff. Limited number of tables gives quite an intimate feel. Nice relaxed but quality bar next to restaurant for drinks. Setting is formal but not stuffy. One of my favourite places to eat in London.

Excellent services plus great tasting foods. Beautiful presentations. Great value to have lunches here.

Archbishop Sumner Church of England Primary School

Jubilee House, 2 Reedworth St, Lambeth, London SE11 4PE, UK – 020 7735 2781

My eldest daughter has attended this school from reception and I have been impressed by the dedication of the both the staff and governors. Music and sports provision with specialist teachers for a small primary is particularly good along with support for a range of abilities both those needing more basic support and those who need to be stretched. Only quibble is clarity and timeliness of communication; the school has both a mobile app and regular SMS updates in addition to a weekly newsletter however not always consistent and allowing sufficient time for working parents to plan. In general a welcoming and supportive environment for children, parents and staff.

Great support for kids who need it and great after school activities. It is a little small for 2 form classes though.

Christopher Hatton Primary School

Also we selebrate and have party's a lot on special accations .So if I were you I would rate this school a 5 star. Well done for the depaty head teacher Jo for making this place a great one and Andrew the head teacher for making children comfortable.by Nathan

This is a really nice school and the children are very happy there. The modern building and facilities make this a great place for them to learn.
