Banks

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 :)

HSBC

95 Gloucester Rd, South Kensington, London SW7 4SX, UK – 0345 740 4404

Absolutely amazing customer service! I visited this HSBC branch in order to open my savings account and get some more information about my existing ISA help to buy. The team was extremely helpful, kind, informative, attentive and professional. I don't usually review places but you guys really deserved it! Big thanks to Pooja and Dominik!

Fantastic customer service at this branch- particular thanks to Muhel for his friendly and trusted advice!

HSBC UK

Kings Mall, 21 King St, Hammersmith, London W6 0QF, UK – 0345 740 4404

Branch is full of helpful staff. I had a RV booked in the same week, and it took the diligent clerk 35mn to open my new bank account - while I had been literally begging over and over again at terrible HSBC Fulham Broadway branch for over 2 months. Problem solved = happy and relieved customer!

My wife and I moved to London from Australia and every other bank rejected us from opening a bank account because we didn’t have an utility bill as proof of address even though we had our tenancy agreement from a reputable real estate agent that showed our address. Santander came close but they wouldn’t allow us to open a joint account. It was a nice surprise and a relief when HSBC let us open a bank account AND a joint one without any issues. We were served by Adesope and his level of customer service was the best we’ve received in our 2 weeks in the UK so far!

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 Dental Clinic

278 Uxbridge Rd, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 7JA, UK – 020 8743 0585

I have been coming to this dental surgery for a few years now. It is a lovely clean and modern surgery with good professional dentists who are very friendly. The receptionists are very helpful and friendly too.

When it first arrived it was considered an extremely swanky dentist because it was new, had screens everywhere and state of the art equipment.lts even swankier now with wands to administer anaesthesia if you're needle phobic. Has a full range of periodontal, orthodontic and cosmetic services so you don't need extra referrals. I'm a dental mess at the moment so lm looking to reapply here after a ten year gap. I need special help with anaesthesia or my arms freeze as well as my mouth and my gums require a major overhaul. Will let you know how l get on. Being accepted as a new patient may not be a given.

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.

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.

The Fulham Medical Centre

446 Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 1BG, UK – 020 7385 6001

I'm not normally inclined to write reviews but I had to on seeing the ridiculous and inflammatory comments people have left below. This is a hugely busy surgery working in the heart of London, under the financial constraints we know effect all areas of the NHS. Yes, it is tricky to get an on-the-day appointment, but that isn't a problem exclusive to this surgery; that is the symptom of a hugely over-stretched, free public health service. I have pressed re-dial 80+ times on my phone at 8.30am to get my son an appointment, but once you get through and secure your appointment, the doctors are highly experienced, extremely pleasant individuals who really do go above and beyond the call of duty for their patients. Dr Pearson, in particular, is absolutely incredible and once emailed a prescription to a pharmacy close to where I was on holiday to make sure I got the medication I needed. I have always found the reception staff to be perfectly nice but they are understandably stretched at times. This really is an excellent surgery working in a crowded and very mixed area and it doesn't cost a penny for an appointment!

Very happy with the help I received here and I have no complaints. I visited when they were very busy, but I still got my appointment in reasonable time and was treated very professionally.

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.

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.

Royal Brompton Hospital

Sydney St, Chelsea, London SW3 6NP, UK – 020 7352 8121

My 3 years old son had sleeping study at this hospital on Monday 12/02/2018. It was my first visit. We received an excellent care by doctors and nurses. Nurse's particaly were amazing and they have done everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much for your amazing work. Well done!

I have experienced RBH since 1994 first with my wife and then as a patient. The medical care is outstanding in every way, the staff caring and professional and the ambience is friendly and reassuring. Sir Reginald Wilson Ward is the best place in the world to be if you are ill. Please fight to keep this wonderful institution alive for the future, it is irreplaceable,

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

369 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 9NH, UK – 020 3315 8000

Urgent care facilities are clean, modern, and well maintained. There is also a children’s waiting room so the adults one is also reasonably quiet. Receptionists are friendly and helpful. Doctors and nurses are knowledgeable and can explain your diagnoses in plain English. I was seen within 45 minutes although I imagine that it can take considerably longer at peak times. Good bus links with several pharmacies nearby.

After waiting 4 hours in pain at another A&E I was told that they would not be able to help me and then I was referred to the this one, and although the aforementioned A&E failed to call ahead and pass along my details I was seen to very quickly and within an hour I was booked in for an operation the following morning. Everyone I came into contact with during my time there were well mannered, empathic and professional. This made me feel much more at ease as it was my first time being admitted to hospital and I was extremely nervous. Every step of what was happening was explained to me, I was always asked if I understood and had any questions. Very clean facilities and excellent bedside manners from the staff. The service I received here was nothing short of excellent.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around West Kensington

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.

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.

Thai Square

563 Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 1ES, UK – 020 7386 9900

We found this place while looking for a late dinner option. The restaurant was mostly empty and getting ready to set the space for the following day but still the staff was quite nice and not only served us but never pressured us to order or pay even when we were the only ones left in the restaurant. The dumplings were quite tasty! A must and great for sharing. The Thai fried rice took the prize as it was not only flavourful and a great portion, it served as the perfect late night dinner. We asked for some soy sauce to give it an extra salty kick - greatly recommended if you could use a stronger flavour in it.

Assumed as a chain restaurant it wouldnt be that great. Have probably been to another branch in the past and been disappointed. I like Thai food and know the good places in London. This is one of them.

This is an excellent school, it provides so many people with help and learning opportunities. I loved my teachers Mr Fox and Mrs Pears for the kind natured teaching skills . I struggled after leaving this school as other schools can't compare or care for my learning. Needs. Barn dances in the hall was one of my favourite times there. Thanks.

This is an amazing school, full of light, green spaces and playgrounds, set in a lovely neighbour. I have 2 kids there and I am so impressed by the way they are tough, and the children are so happy to go to school. Staff is knowledgeable, respectful and kind, the head teacher is clearly doing a great job!
