Banks

TSB Bank

119 Putney High St, London SW15 1SU, UK – 020 8780 0430

The staff is always willing to help. I have see Tina few times and she's was very clear and reply to all my questions.

I wonder if tsb as a whole will ever update their interior design. It always looks outdated and basic. The staff are usually friendly but they all have different training on what is and what isn't allowed, so this has caused a few issues in the past.

Lloyds Bank

308 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, London W4 1NS, UK – 0345 300 0000

I've banked with Lloyd's for many decades. My original branch​ was awful and I moved to another bank because of them. When I moved to Chiswick I found this branch and its staff a revelation. They are friendly, helpful and efficient and as a result I am using them again for a lot of my banking needs. Banking with this branch is definitely a good choice.

Always helpful. Super friendly staff. Glad to be a customer.

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 :)

Dental Surgeries

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!

92 Dental

5 Glenthorne Mews, 115a Glenthorne Rd., Hammersmith, London W6 0LJ, UK – 020 8748 1381

My appointment with Dr Ron Baise at 92 Dental was excellent in every way possible. I’m usually very nervous but I trust Ron, because over the years I’ve been going I know that he will only do what is absolutely necessary, that less is more. Taking care of teeth is the priority. He is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable and also very clear when explaining x-rays. I feel safe in his hands. I also saw Ash who’s absolutely brilliant- what a fantastic Hygienist - such attention to detail and got to all the tricky places. Excellent surgery and lovely receptionist. Strongly recommend

First class dentistry! I'm absolutely thrilled and cannot think of a single way to improve the whole service. I came here on a friend's recommendation having lost an upper front tooth and was sad to be facing my first fake tooth. But the result is amazing and I couldn't be happier. I even requested 'non intrusive, no metal' and Ron's immense skill and experience has delivered exactly that. I highly recommend him to anyone in search of world class dentistry.

Sheen Dental Clinic

152 Upper Richmond Rd W, London SW14 8DP, UK – 020 8876 5277

I have recently had a two year treatment of braces and minus the unavoidable pain and bruised feeling that comes with said braces my treatment has been quite pleasent. The receptionists are always very nice to me and the team behind everything are very friendly and give great results.

I did quite a bit of "shopping around" before selecting a practice for my Orthodontic treatment, and I am very pleased I selected Sheen Dental. Dr. Stavaras and his team (Hi Carolina!) have the latest techniques and equipment, were consistently polite, full of information, and most of all, very cheerful throughout. The work I had done was technically complicated, and actually involved a surgical procedure (in hospital). The Sheen Dental team flexibly managed the whole thing, and showed tremendous attention to detail and compassion. My teeth are now perfectly straight, and I get many compliments - I'm now smiling all the time! I'm really happy with the whole experience - I really feel the treatment could not have been better. My two boys go to Sheen Dental as well, and they really enjoy going to the dentist. If you're considering braces, I enthusiastically recommend Sheen Dental - they are the best around!

The Bush Doctors Surgery

18 W 12 Shopping Centre, Hammersmith, London W12 8PP, UK – 020 8749 1882

You have to book weeks in advance which is a real bummer but once you're in they look after you well.

Dr S Jefferies and Partners

292 Munster Rd, Fulham, London SW6 6BQ, UK – 020 7385 1965

Recently joined this surgery and the quality of the reception staff, doctors and nurses has been the best quality I could have hoped for. Not always easy to get an appointment but when you do you get very good treatment and friendly service at reception even when busy. Thanks for alway being great!

Great hours for working parents - you just need to know how the surgery booking process works. Good range of doctors/nurses for different needs - regular gp, female specific, kids vaccinations etc.

Dr R Jenkins - the Lilyville Surgery

630 Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 5RS, UK – 020 7736 4344

While it took a very long time for my registration to be processed with this practice, I have to say that I had one of the best GP interactions I've ever had with Dr Carthy this week. She was highly professional, hearing me out while demonstrating balance and a depth of knowledge and care in her advice.

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.

Catholic Church of Our Lady of Grace & St Edward

247 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, London W4 4PU, UK – 020 8994 2877

Bumped into Father Andrew outside the church this evening. Very pleasant chap indeed.

Raccolta chiesa cattolica : alcuni fedeli quando siamo entrati si sono accorti che eravamo italiani e si sono prodigati per metterci a nostro agio. La celebrazione è stata molto sentita dai partecipanti.

St Thomas of Canterbury

60 Rylston Rd, Fulham, London SW6 7HW, UK – 020 7385 4040

We have lived nearby for nearly 2 years now and will be moving away from St Thomas in the next few months. What will we do? We intend to commute via bus because this is simply the best Church for us. Father Oscar and Father Dennis are insightful, friendly and offer intelligent sermons, prayers and stories. The congregation vary from babies to elderly and each and every person is very warm and inviting. Aesthetically the space is beautiful, always garnered with beautiful flower arrangements. To experience mass here is always pleasure, I would encourage anyone and everyone to come.

A "cathedral" hidden within Fulham. Sometimes, the flowers arranged there are a Heavenly sight to behold! The flowers today,Easter Sunday, were fantastic.

Saint Augustine's Catholic Church

55 Fulham Palace Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 8AU, UK – 020 8748 3788

Very friendly, very welcoming. Alive. I hope every church is like this.

Find Recycling Centres

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!

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 Richmond

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.

Wagamama

50-54 Putney High St, London SW15 1SQ, UK – 020 8785 3636

I went there on Friday with my girlfriend for the first time. The service was amazing and the food as well. I explained them that I'm allergic to eggs, so they told me that they washed the food station and made sure the food was without eggs. Excellent service. Recommended !!

What a great group of staff. Really friendly and great service and so kind to our children and made us feel so welcome. Great place for family’s. Thank you 👍

Bill's Putney Restaurant

Can’t fault at all! The service was amazing (staff were friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and so helpful). Food was delicious (I would recommend Lamb shank) and the cocktails were spot on. The price was pretty standard and the atmosphere was really nice. Overall a lovely experience!

Good food, good service... but a little pricey. Would good back though.
