Banks

HSBC

103 Streatham Hill, London SW2 4UE, UK – 0345 740 4404

I went to the branch today as a walk-in client. I waited only two minutes and was able to help myself to water. I spoke with a friendly employee who had a similar humour and so our conversation was nice and informative. She was very clear with information and was able to answer questions that I had.

TSB Bank

Building Societies

Nationwide

152 Clapham High St, London SW4 7UA, UK – 0800 554 0278

I have just seen two comments about the staff and it is not the same branch where I bank. They must of mistaken it for another bank. They are absolutely lovely there. I'm just sorry that people seem to be making cheap shots about the service. I go once a week as do most of the other customers and you can tell that we are made to feel very welcome and dare I say at home.

Yorkshire Building Society

112, 114 Streatham High Rd, London SW16 1BW, UK – 020 8769 0087

Nationwide Building Society

405 Brixton Rd, Brixton, London SW9 7DJ, UK – 0800 554 0270

Very helpful staff, but starting to look a bit grubby. Cash machines are in awkward places, and it seems a bit cramped and dark.

Good bank. Does a professional job with little fee. Crowd and cues are a challenge in this branch.

Local Chambers of Commerce for SE24 9DS. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Went along to Lambeth Town Hall for an appointment and was seen by a wonderful lady called Cherie she was so pleasant, made me feel so comfortable and delighted to be there. Thank you!!

Dental Surgeries

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!

SW9 Dental Practice

263 Clapham Rd, London SW9 9BQ, UK – 020 7274 0455

Great dental practice. Friendly staff. I am generally nervous when it comes to dentists, but I felt relaxed during the entire treatment, and I would definitely recommend this place.

I recently had a dental treatment done at this friendly dental practice. It was a very smooth experience and I was very happy and satisfied. The staff were helpful, and the dentist helped me to relax and feel at ease even though I am very nervous when it comes to dental treatments. I really recommend this dental practice.

Dentistry for You

35 Gresham Rd, Brixton, London SW9 7NU, UK – 020 7274 7484

Thank you to Dentistry for You and the lovely reception staff and Dr Subbiah and Adina for the painless and pleasant service. I hope you have a great time during festive season & have a happy New Year! Recommended dental surgery in Brixton.

The dentists here are absolutely fantastic, there's no other way of describing their clinical knowledge and approach to their patients. The only real problem I have is with the nightly security/reception staff member. While he is undoubtedly a nice guy, why hasn't anyone else in the practice helped to teach him basic healthcare English or the proper instructions for filling out emergency NHS dentistry forms? With a little support, he would be an ideal member of the team.

Queens Road Surgery

136 Meeting House Ln, London SE15 2UA, UK – 020 7639 1133

I am a patient person and book appointments when I've got time to wait, but I understand the frustration of others who have full-time jobs with having delays. Aside from that, I've found the doctors themselves to be wonderful. I've got long-term complex health problems and they've believed me and supported me every step of the way. The clinic is fully wheelchair accessible and has free wifi and an online prescription request service. It can be tricky to get emergency appointments but they're often flexible if you ask saying it's urgent. I got antibiotics over the phone because of my autoimmune condition which was a lifesaver. I am aware, however, that I am male and more likely to be respected by medical practitioners. So I would not ignore other reviews! I've only experienced rudeness once from a male receptionist who I've never seen there again. The surgery needs more government funding to meet our community needs.

Lovely practice but very hard to get a timely appointment at the surgery

306 Medical Centre

306 Lordship Ln, London SE22 8LY, UK – 020 8693 4704

The reception Team are really helpful. And the Dr's go above and beyond. I was worried about moving from an old practice. But it worked out better for me as there is a lot more help and support. The open hours are great too for those of us who work a little later in the evenings.

I've moved around London a lot over the past 10 years and this surgery has given me the best service by far. I've seen both doctors - both are friendly, approachable, caring and knowledgeable.

The Melbourne Grove Medical Practice

7 Melbourne Grove, East Dulwich, London SE22 8QN, UK – 020 8299 0499

I'm aware that across the country many people struggle to get same day appointments with their GP but I've always been able to get one if I needed it. The GPs are friendly and competent and the reception staff are mostly helpful. This is why I've stayed registered with Melbourne Grove practice despite moving slightly further away.

Doctors and staff here are just amazing. So caring and professional. Highest recommendation.

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.

King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Denmark Hill, Brixton, London SE5 9RS, UK – 020 3299 9000

Very good service. Specially Aunti Grace. Every time I was in the women surgical unit (several times in the past 6 months) she was caring and attentive and listened to what I had to say. Really appreciate her bedside manner. Also my surgeon Mr Bidmead and his team gave me back my life. So thank you King's College hospital for a job well done.

Emergency Room Wait times are VERY VERY VERY long. Over 6 hours. Clearly, they are understaffed. However, all the triage staff, nurses, and doctors were EXTREMELY nice, polite and friendly.

Great RC Church indeed. The best in SE I've visited. Priests are friendly, choir makes the service even more enjoyable. It's good to live nearby 😁

A great place to Praise & Worship the Lord our God. The architecture is stunning & beautiful; and the environment was very warm, even in mid-winter. Go and worship, and see for yourself.

Southwark Reuse and Recycling Centre

53 Devon St, London SE15 1AL, UK – 020 7525 2000

Great place, lots of people using it and staff are really nice and helpfully. They also have a place to reuse& recycle furniture bikes & other items that still have some life in them. Feels good to separate the rubbish & recycle.

I love this recycling centre really easy to use and they are really helpful staff. I hope many will use instead of fly tipping. I have seen huge changes in the community since.

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 Herrne Hill

The Clink Brixton

HMP Brixton, Jebb Ave, London SW2 5XF, UK – 020 8678 9007

Had an amazing time at The Clink Brixton! It was a surprise belated birthday present and I didn’t know where we were going. The food was amazing, service/staff were really attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend it!

Just got back from The Clink in Brixton. Fantastic experience. Check in staff were helpful and informative. Staff in training were attentive, pleasant and very helpful, good atmosphere. Wish I could name staff. Starter, main course and dessert served. Presentation was excellent and each course left you looking forward to the next (ordered Apple Charlotte twice!!). Very good value for money whilst contributing to an excellent cause and will be going back again and again.

A Toca Restaurant

343 Wandsworth Rd, London SW8 2JH, UK – 020 7627 2919

A Portuguese Delight - Coming from an Italian expat! This is a great place to get good fish and meat dishes, with space to eat outside in a non busy street. The staff is wonderful and they are very helpful and create a nice atmosphere. They also do very good home made desserts. Definitely recommended!

A delightful Portuguese restaurant. We really enjoyed our meal here. Even though the place was very busy the service was good and attentive. Great prices and portions too. Will definitely be back.

The Dairy

15 The Pavement, London SW4 0HY, UK – 020 7622 4165

Very good brunch. A bit cramped, but understand that they have a small space in a popular area. The smoked salmon and brown bread were excellent. Missing one star as price does not equate to portions which are on the small side. Coffee was also very good. Had a flat white and iced Americano.

Just such an amazing place to eat. Everything was so amazing. I can't wait to go back. Thank you to everyone I had the absolute best time.

Nursery and Preschools

DULWICH MONTESSORI NURSERY SCHOOL

St Stephens Church, College Rd, London, Dulwich SE21 7HN, UK – 020 8766 0091

Dulwich Montessori is a fantastic nursery and I would thoroughly recommend it. The staff are all exceptional . My daughter would daily come home speaking highly of each of her teachers. She gained so much confidences whilst at the nursery. My daughter really enjoys structure and the Montessori teachings really helped her to do so well while at the nursery. As a parent I always loved reading her blue book to find out how her day had been. She has now left the nursery but still loves to come back and visit. I work locally and have recommend a number of parents in the local area, who have also sent their children there and are also impressed.

Having put two children through Dulwich Montessori a fews back, who are now thriving at primary school, I am back again with my third who I know will have an equally enriching Montessori experience as her sisters. The staff here are phenomenal.

Alphabet Lanes Nursery & Preschool

9 Norwood High St, West Norwood, London SE27 0HS, UK – 020 8670 3100

Great service and Friendly staff. Really care about children 's education

St Michael's Pre-School

St Michaels Church Hall, Stockwell Park Rd, London SW9 0DA, UK – 020 7274 0783

I'm very pleased with all the staff of the nursery to all the support they gave and my daughter in the past year that I lost my father. They were comprehensive, friendly and helped me lots of times when I was in tears. The staff it's just amazing, friendly and supportive. A big thank you to all of you. You're doing a great job. My daughter's skills improved a lot with your support. Annita still talk about her good time in St. Michael's Nursery. THANKS.

Of all the many nurseries that my grandchildren attended, this is the one that stands out, simply because the staff were so loving. They were so warmly greeted as they arrived (unlike at the "outstanding" nursery nearby), and they came out very happy. My memories of this place are warm and glowing.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Clapham Manor Primary School

Belmont Rd, London SW4 0BZ, UK – 020 7622 3919

Lovely school. My two sons have attended Clapham Manor since nursery and they're very happy there. The large majority of teachers there are brilliant, enthusiastic about their job and supportive when there are issues. Children perform extremely well. There's a very nice community feel to it too. Highly recommended.

I would vote 6 stars if I could. One of the premier primary schools in South London. Largely to do with Mr Hazell and his team.

St Mary Magdalene C Of E Primary School

48 Brayards Rd, London SE15 3RA, UK – 020 7639 1724

It's my school

Oliver Goldsmith Primary School

83 Peckham Rd, London SE5 8UH, UK – 020 7703 4894

The school is amazing and I'm so happy that I went to that school,the teachers always support you and help you to try your best. I am in year six and I'm getting ready for the SAT and when I leave this school, I'll never forget it.

It's a great school , Year 6 even get to go on a trip for three days.

Oakfield Preparatory School

126-128 Thurlow Park Rd, London SE21 8HP, UK – 020 8670 4206

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to all 400 students of Oakfield Preparatory School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff, who helped me move the heavy dome into the hall and also brought me a mug of tea. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. I was even treated to lunch. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, learning about the Moon, travelling through the Solar System and even discovering Natural Selection with Charles Darwin. Thank you Oakfield Preparatory School for a very pleasant visit.

Excellent school. I have visited several times and always been very impressed. Great facilities, high standards and friendly atmosphere too.

Streatham & Clapham High School

42 Abbotswood Rd, London SW16 1AW, UK – 020 8677 8400

Well run independent school with lovely atmosphere. Good facilities and its accessible as well. Not too close to train/tube links but bus runs close by.

My sister went here and she always said it was fantastic. My girlfriend went here too and it is probably the best girls school in South West London.
