Banks

TSB Bank

119 Putney High St, Putney, 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 It always looks outdated and basic.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.

HSBC

281 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, London W4 4HJ, UK – 0345 740 4404

Just a quick note to say thanks to a young man - an absolute star, helping me this early morning. Clearly passionate about his work but more importantly, his customers. Thank you once again.

No cashier on the weekend 👎

HSBC UK

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

Walked in and been nicely welcomed and very well assisted. Shaun definitely went the extra mile to help me. Great service!

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!

Nationwide

I visited Nationwide on Chiswick High Road today in order to set up internet banking and Sharon very kindly went through the procedure and set everything up for me. An absolutely outstanding service from Sharon, she was extremely polite and highly professional and I now have internet banking. First Class Service!! 10 out of 10.

I was given 5* service today by the branch manager Alistair. He went above and beyond to assist me, and gave outstanding customer service. It makes a pleasant change to be made to feel welcome by my local branch and I am far more likely to use more of the bank's products and services because of this experience.

Truly amazing practice. Staff are friendly and keep you at ease. My dentist Alex is thorough and explains things in details. This is the ideal practice for anyone who hates going to dentist. They take away that fear!!

Alex is amazing , he has transformed my smile , i cant stop smiling , the staff here are all so lovely , it's a totally different dental experience !!

Kings Dental Clinic (Hammersmith, Olympia)

36 North End Rd, Hammersmith, London W14 0SH, UK – 020 7603 5211

I am a 4th year dental student and doing my placement at the hammersmith branch, the team is very friendly and well qualified.

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!

Sheen Dental & Implant Clinic

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

My experience with Dr Patel and the entire team at Sheen Dental Clinic was fantastic. They made me feel at ease when doing the dental procedure and it feels so nice to have a good dentist who is confident. I'll definitely be coming back for my routine check-up!

I visited Sheen Dental for the first time today. I had a loose implant crown from an implant installed 14 years ago in NYC. I contacted Sheen Dental earlier this week, providing the implant brand and other technical information from the US dentist. Sheen Dental express ordered in replacement components in case they were needed to fix the problem. When I visited the Sheen Dental Clinic I met with Dr. Harmit Kalsi, the dental nurses and the reception all of whom were superbly friendly and professional. The practice really impressed. It’s a big dental practice, with several dentists and disciplines and with me the state of the art technology, very impressive treatment rooms, and a waiting area that you are happy to wait in. In terms of the treatment, Dr. Kalsi provided me a clear and very helpful consultation. After X-rays, photos, etc he reviewed the problem, identified the cause of the issue and fixed it. In addition, he reviewed my teeth in general, suggesting some helpful areas that could be addressed. Dr. Kalsi was very reassuring, friendly and professional throughout the procedure and I had no pain. My implant is now secure. Again, all the staff at Sheen Dental were very helpful too. I will be switching to Dr. Kalsi this clinic as my main dentist as they feel in a different league.

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.

The Bush Doctors

147 Shepherd's Bush Green, Hammersmith, London W12 8PP, UK – 020 8749 1882

Fantastic doctors who genuinely care about their patients. The reception team are helpful too. Getting appointments is tricky, but that's the standard in surgeries these days.

Great surgery, amazing staff. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Pamini is always thorough.

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.

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

Place of Peace. Vibrant congregation in centenary working for active regeneration.

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

Wonderful parish. Attended Mass on holiday here and it was great!

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.

Find Recycling Centres

Acton Re-use and Recycling Centre

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

I would say about 30pc of the times I arrive, it is temporarily closed while they change something. Problem of a smaller centre

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

Townmead Road Re-use and Recycling Centre

Townmead Rd, Kew, Richmond TW9 4EL, UK – 020 8876 3281

Well organised. Very good and helpful staff.

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.

Giveacar

New Kings House, 136-144 New King's Rd, Fulham, London SW6 4LZ, UK – 020 7736 4242

Lack of communications from company assigned to pick up the car for auction; so 4 out of 5. Otherwise a 5 star idea.

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 Barnes

The Gate Hammersmith

51A, Queen Caroline St, Hammersmith, London W6 9QL, UK – 020 7833 0401

Updated as of May 2018 The food tastes amazing especially being entirely vegetarian it still hits the spot, the food they offer is seasonal so if you come at different times of the year you'll get a different menu which I think is a great idea. As well as the food being great the staff are friendly and polite. The service of the food could improve as it does take a little long to come out however you won't be disappointed with the food. It is located on the side of the Hammersmith Apollo, so you may need try and find it. I highly recommend The Gate. The service has definitely improved the food comes out a lot quicker but I do think that's also to do with the fact you have to vacate your table within 2 hours however. The food is still perfection.

The service on both occasions was warm and friendly. The food was interesting and delicious. There is variety in each of the courses and menus and something for palate. The location is very convenient to get to but beautifully hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Hammersmith. I will definitely go back.

Bill's Hammersmith Restaurant

10 Hammersmith Grove, Hammersmith, London W6 7AP, UK – 020 8741 1898

We were visiting London this weekend and we were located in Hammersmith. We looked for a nice restaurant where to have an authentic English breakfast and found Bill's. The place is really classy, nice decorated and the staff are very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend either the Bills breakfast or the Vegetarian breakfast, both are huge to start a touristic day without being hungry two hours later. The prices are not expensive at all considering the location, food quality and personnel. I would definitely go and have my breakfast everyday there.

Eaten here twice before seeing shows at the Apollo. Food is good, always busy when we've been and the staff aren't the most attentive or helpful but they are trying it's just that they don't seem to anticipate when they will be busy and get more staff. Plus they have crammed as many tables as possible into the restaurant which makes it hard for staff and customers to navigate. My friend was on crutches on my second visit and struggled to get to and from the table. The disabled toilet appeared to be doubling as a storage area for toilet rolls so I'm not sure a wheelchair user would be able to use it as easily as they might like to...

Wagamama

The Old Firestation, 244 Shepherds Bush Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 7NN, UK – 020 8741 9814

Very good for all your Japanese food needs. The chicken katsu curry and the ramens are particularly good. A nice ambience and polite waiters but with long benches and open spaces it's not that private.

Tasty ramen options for a chain, but the menu is a bit pricey for the quality of the food in my opinion.

Schools a lovely old building not one of those plastic new ones ,teachers are strict yet lovely new science block is great although I'm a bit worried that it is near a main road ,school uniforms nice.

Melcombe is honestly an amazing school. The staff and pupils are extremley friendly and your child/children will not only obtain a good amount of knowledge, but will also have lots of fun due to the activities the school has to offer. Not to mention, if your child has a problem, the teachers will go out of their way to try and fix it.
