Nationwide Building Society

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

Westminster Council House, 97-113 Marylebone Rd, Marylebone, London NW1 5PT, UK – 020 7641 7500

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.

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!

Dental Surgeries

Aqua Dental Spa

25 Manchester Square, Marylebone, London W1U 3PY, UK – 020 7935 5332

Excellent clinical & support team. I have used Aqua Dental for 2-3 years for complex Dental Implants, normal Dental maintenance and regular orthodontics. The team is always going beyond the call to provide an excellent service at every level. Friendly reassuring and always following up with great after care and expert advice. Best dental team practice I have ever used (which includes some v good Dental practises in New York, USA). I would highly recommend them.

I went to Aqua Dental Spa for the first time two weeks ago. I've always had a dental phobia, so heading to the dentist would normally be a cause for panic attacks and even crying fits. The two beautiful ladies you see first thing in reception are amazing and inviting! Jayne, who takes the free consultations, was very understanding and assured me everything was okay, a lot of people have exactly the same fear. The great thing is, the spa specialises in people with heavy anxiety! Anyway, after having two more visits with their dentist on duty - Will and their hygienist - Anna, it felt like a second home. I've never been able to visit a dental clinic by myself until now. The deep cleaning procedures are an absolute delight! I didn't feel anything, which was my main cause for panic. I don't do well with any sort of dental discomfort, but Anna was amazing and my teeth feel healthier and stronger after only a week! Definitely going back for all of my cleaning and fillings, as I am confident the Aqua Dental Spa is on the right way to eradicate my phobia entirely! Something I thought would never be possible! As soon my student finance comes in, they are the first place I'm heading to! Love you, guys!

Harley Street Dental Clinic

139 Harley St, Marylebone, London W1G 6BG, UK – 020 7486 1059

I had my new smile done by Samar Khamis. She is so lovely and very good at what she is doing. Felt that I was in good hands from the start. I’m very pleased with my new smile. Will definitely go back again.

My dentist Samar Khamis at Harley street dental clinic is AMAZING, she's a real expert in her field. She is also very lovely and totally puts you at ease. She has given me the most lovely smile and has also had utmost patience with me! The day before Christmas Eve I chipped half my front tooth and had a real panic, but she saw me immediately during her lunch break to fix it before Christmas. She gives everything to her work to get the best results and I honestly couldn't recommend her more.

Kennington Dental Surgery

234 Kennington Park Rd, London SE11 4DA, UK – 020 7735 4579

Lovely dentist and lovely receptionist - very well looked after here and my dentist genuinely cares.

The male dentist is not just good but he is perfect, I went to see him after seeing two private dentists. After visiting these dentists I recieved bad assistance with a high bill. I would recommend the male dentist (Rodrigues) as he was able to fix my problem. As well as the friendly receptionist, who was always creating a good atmosphere whilst being very helpful. I would like to thank these people, and highly recommend them.

Dentists

Victoria Dental Centre

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

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.

Took me on short notice to fix a loose tooth which was in itself worth 5 stars. Professional, painless, quick, thorough and friendly. Very happy with the level of service from Dr Harshil Patel and his great demeanour.

Smilepod Soho

56A Poland St, Soho, London W1F 7NN, UK – 020 7836 6866

Dr Gino Castro is an excellent dentist. I have had a lot of restorative work conpleted and it has all been done professionally and pain free. I would highly recommend, worth every penny paid. :-).

Really nice experience, they treat you really well even if you are a new patient and you are not spending an incredible amount of money. I did the normal cleaning and hygiene, the doctor was clean, quick, precise and explaining me what she was doing. She provided me good advises on how to keep my mouth and teeth healthy. Strongly recommended.

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.

London Doctors Clinic

Room 101, 117 Waterloo Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 8UL, UK – 020 8712 9378

Very comfortable reception and office. Both times I've been here (once on a Saturday) the doctor actually listened, gave clear advice, and helped me with prescriptions and referrals, and to navigate how to get the further help I needed. They also stock certain basic prescriptions right there - eliminating the need for another stop at a pharmacy, which is helpful especially off-hours. Sometimes, it's worth it to invest a little for excellent service.

Extremely convenient, made an appointment within the hour and was seen with minimal wait. Great alternative when you need urgent attention but cant get into the GP.

London Doctors Clinic

101D, 18 Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 3QL, UK – 020 8712 9378

It's easy to make an appointment online and be seen within a few days. The doctors are professional and helpful. Take the lift to go straight to the first floor rather than waiting at the reception downstairs. However, while appointments with the doctors are reasonably priced, any other treatment is expensive. A very simple urea test cost me £200. The doctor recommended I try a cream that he gave me for £15 while saying he wasn't sure if it was easy to find at any pharmacy (I checked later and it was easy to find for £5).

Easy to find. Easy to make online appointments. Very reasonable prices compared to most. The consultancy fee is not mentioned - so the £155 is actually £210. The men's toilets- for the urine sample - are downstairs through public areas. Results are quick, staff are friendly.

London Doctors Clinic - Private GP

4.1, Alpha House, 100 Borough High St, London SE1 1LB, UK – 020 8712 9378

I visited London Bridge not long ago, as I was feeling extremely unwell in work. My GP had no same day appointments and suggested to call back the following morning, but I just could not leave it that long. I googled doctors local to me and this was the nearest to work. I saw the doctor within the 15 minute time slot, got my medication and felt much better by the end of the week. Amazing, convenient service, and great staff including the helpful receptionist who offered me water. Definitely a recommendation for friends/family within the busy City life. S. Jane

After 2 months of trying to get tests and good sense out of the NHS, and a lot of stress in the process, everything I needed was achieved in a single day by a lovely London Doctor. Such efficiency and such sound and caring advice was the most pleasant surprise to me. I wholeheartedly recommend them and will definitely use them again if I need to.

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.

Church with great bible teaching and very friendly people.

Hillsong Church London

Whaoe what a setting for church. A lively spirit filled church reaching out into community creating the environment for God to change lives. Worship uplifting message good. Start where u are with what you have. Great welcome.

Saint Etheldreda's Roman Catholic Church

14 Ely Pl, London EC1N 6RY, UK – 020 7405 1061

A little gem indeed: the architecture, the history, the windows (on a sunny day the choir windows are mesmerising! Look out for the angels quite unusual) And the service too is top quality either weekdays or Sunday.

The place is very quite and warm. It has a 1:00pm mass during the weekdays which is good for working faithful Catholics. The entrance is not that noticeable as it is facing parallel with the road, new to the place won’t find it easily but just looked to the left and you will find the small door which lead to narrow hallway. Very solemn place of worship.

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.

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
