TSB Bank

106 N End, Croydon CR0 1UD, UK – 020 8680 9662

Jon was absolutely brilliant with helping with an account. Even skipped his normal lunch time to help. Very friendly patient and professional. The CEO needs to put his hand in his pocket and thank the staff.

We had appointment with Julie Edwards she So friendly and she help us with all we need We’re satisfied with the service

HSBC

139a N End, Croydon CR0 1TN, UK – 0345 740 4404

AVOID THE COUNTER SERVICE IF YOU CAN! It's a fine branch if you can use the self-service machines and pop in and out quickly but god help you in the instances you need to queue up to speak to a cashier, which sometimes you've got no choice but to do. - Long queues with people often pushing in without consequences - Inconsiderate and rude staff often at open windows doing their own chores, sometimes even openly having lunch even when there is clearly a long queue of people who've been waiting for ages and are getting frustrated - Too many inexperienced or trainee staff who don't know what they're doing which contributes to the ridiculous wait times - Pens to fill out paying in forms often not working or unavailable Like most banks, these dirtbags make MILLIONS from our deposits and rather than hire staff and make in-branch experiences better using that windfall they instead prefer to help illegally launder money for Mexican drug cartels.

Staff are fantastic and lots of deposit machines

HSBC Croydon Wellesley Road

9 Wellesley Rd, Croydon CR9 2AA, UK – 0345 740 4404

Good bank nice location

Very lovely attendants who you would firstly speak to queue for the advisors. Nice waiting area. However the advisor I encountered provided me with false information and he was really forceful. I'm glad that I knew the correct information online so I wasn't cheated by him. I ended up finishing up my account opening and switch in another branch. It's very appealing so I've made formal complaint and received positive feedbacks from their customer service. Watch out if you ever speak to Nirav S Palan.

Thank you to James for making sure my money got to my account when it got stuck in the machine without me having to come back a second time :)

Local Chambers of Commerce for CR7 7QT. 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!

Gorgeous Town Centre building

Anerley Town Hall & Business Centre

Anerley Road, London SE20 8BD, UK – 020 8676 5666

It is a beautiful and well-maintained historic building. The staff are friendly and helpful. I am running my morning yoga class there on every Wednesday. The main hall with the big window, high-ceiling and wooden floor is perfect environment for the mindfulness movement practice.

Council services and library are no longer at this building. Anerley Town Hall is located opposite Anerley National Rail station with links to London and Croydon and has a good bus service from Bromley, Croydon, Norwood and Crystal Palace. It is a locally listed Victorian building with character and charm. Its location and facilities make it an ideal venue for wedding receptions, parties, dances, clubs, meetings and conferences.

Dental Surgeries

Brigstock Dental & Implant Centre

97 Brigstock Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7JL, UK – 020 8689 6171

As a dental phobe always a tricky time for me. As soon as I walked into the practice I was made to feel at ease. Pleasant reception staff and a calm atmosphere. Rudy and his nurse were kind, calm and understanding. I now have a smile I've never had before and one that caused no pain. I would and am recommending this practice to all my family. Thank you so much everyone 😁

I arrived as a new patient in pain to see Dr Patel and he delivered a pain free service and one year on my health and faith in dentists has been completely restored! All the staff have been so friendly and professional; for the first time in my life I’m actually looking forward to my next dental appointment! Will not be going anywhere else for my dental needs, definitely worth the travel. Thanks again Dr Patel and your amazing team!

Minty Pearls Dental Clinic

1490-1492 London Rd, Streatham, London SW16 4BT, UK – 020 8764 7888

It's a great dentist, I have always been treated with respect in Minty Pearls Norbury, it's expensive but, you deffently get what your pay for. Great work from a great professional dentist.

Park Lane Dental

98 Park Ln, Croydon CR0 1JB, UK – 020 8688 8877

I'm an extremely nervous patient - dentist appointments used to cause me nights of lost sleep and fits of tears well into my 20's. But Park Lane Dental and Dr. Shah have been an incredible find for me in London. He's professional, but empathetic and human. I've never felt a moment of pain and my experience at Park Lane has dramatically decreased my dentist stress and fears.

I will defintely recommend Diana the Dental Surgeon She is caring and takes her time wirh you. i am terrified of the dentist due to bad experiences but Diana treats you like a human being and makes it all bearable

Dr R Cartwright - Baldry Gardens Family Practice

293 Streatham High Rd, London SW16 3NP, UK – 020 3049 5470

Fantastic modern building. Streatham Common Practice has a surgery here on the first floor.

Dr S Y Ganesaratnam - Wide Way Medical Centre

15 Wide Way, Mitcham CR4 1BP, UK – 020 8623 1300

Administration staffs are excellent!! Doctors and nursing staffs do their best. Keep up the good job ladies at the front desk and keep up the good work.

Great surgery the doctors are all very good and it doesn’t matter who you see. Also a great bonus is that the receptionist and admin staff are friendly and very helpful.

London Road Medical Centre

515 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7PB, UK – 020 8684 2161

Excellent . I have been with this practice since 1996 , and remember it being in a hut on the grounds of Mayday Hospital , before it relocated to 519 London Road. I’ve seen a lot of changes , but the biggest one is the undue pressures that GP’s have to face due to budget cuts . Due to this it’s becoming hard to recruit and retain GP’s, which means increased waiting times and lesser appointments for us . Receptionist have also undue pressures , just to name a few, by ensuring that patients medical records are up to date , being careful they haven’t missed something vital , and the continuous phones calls , trying to balance out which calls are urgent or not. . Yes they may seem off at times but I wouldn’t take it personally, you only have to step into their shoes for one day and realise what they go through .The NHS is a blessing and as things are going now , we may not have it in the future, so therefore we should help retain it by supporting our practice staff and using the service when we Really need to .

I am very pleased with the service of this surgery. Staff included. Dr Khan takes the time to explain your symptoms and any medication that she prescribes for you. She also takes time to listen to you. This is a good thing as i find the medical field on the whole do not listen to the young or old people. The young are dismissed because they are young an deemed to be without knowledge and the old are neglected because they are already on the way to the grave, so why bother! Yes! unfortunately that has been the experience i have witnessed. This is why i say its good to be listened to.. Sumayyah Mootoo

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.

Moorfields Eye Hospital

530 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7YE, UK – 020 8401 3486

Accompanied my apprehensive husband David this morning to have laser treatment to repair a torn retina. Moorfields Eye clinic was busy but efficient. David was duly called into the laser room and towards the end of the10 minute procedure, he passed out. With in seconds emergency help arrived, nurses, doctors, oxygen, porters, paramedics with stretcher. A routine session became a scene out of casualty as they brought him round from fainting. With all of this came a real sense of concern, efficiency, reassurance and true care. Bless all of you and thank you.

I have been under Moorfields eye departments at Croydon for a number of years and cannot speak highly enough of their level of care and professionalism. Moorfields took over the eye division at CUH quite a while back and the improvements they have achieved are very impressive. I am therefore loathe to post my feedback from last Thursday but do this in the hope that remedial action can be taken. I attended the eye clinic for a post operation review and waited nearly three and a half hours to be seen by a consultant. He and his support staff were clearly embarrassed by the poor scheduling of the mornings appointments which resulted in horrendous log jams and was plainly due to poor resource planning failure by admin staff. The staff and consultants were , as usual, absolutely excellent .However, I really hope we are not returning to the bad old days of thoughtless appointment booking and appropriate staffing decisions!

Croydon Day Hospital

Level 9, INTERCHANGE, 81- 85 Station Rd, Croydon CR0 2RD, UK – 020 3126 4620

Fantastic place, great service from people working here. Ladies at the reception are just brilliant, friendly and very helpful, and so is my physiotherapist Nicholas. Very professional, with great attitude towards work and patients, fantastic skills and knowledge. A specialist with the vocation. With his support I got from crutches to skipping rope within few months only and this is post major operation on my lower part of leg (as the consequence of an accident that put me in the wheelchair for several months some years ago). Hospital offers many different services - I only used physio. It is very clean and tidy and quite. Maybe too quiet. I walked past this place many times and would never have guessed there is a hospital in this building until I was referred here and got an address on invitation letter.

Great hospital :)

Factory Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre

33-56 Factory Ln, Croydon CR0 3RL, UK – 020 8726 6200

This was my first visit and I was impressed. Fab top tip. Staff were brilliant, approachable and helpful. Parked in front of Tesco and asked passerby for directions. He directed that it was the next place after here and said he was going there too. He happened to approach us later on site as he was staff and asked if we needed help! Super service. He guided us. Site easy set up. Why isn't this place promoted more by the council in their newsletter? Dropped off batteries and electricals but there are so many things u can drop off. Wish I'd noticed exactly what so I could share that with you now and be more informative. Park in a bay and unload. Go up some metal steps and say goodbye to your goodies. Containers Nicely labelled. Clear your homes and take advantage of this terrific service. As a first timer take I.D and separate proof of address (see their website for specifics) and man at gate will give u a sticker to place on windscreen. In his words "Top or bottom, left or right. Place it where you like on the windscreen!" Wow. I don't usually write reviews but I just had to tell Croydonians of this drive through day out! (10 mins in and out breeze) no queue, went day time Sunny Thursday. Why had I been putting this visit off? Well deserved 5* Hope this review helped u all out.

Don’t like the narrow convulated tunnel like entrance to the skips And the ramps also

Hintons Grabs & Skip Hire

Though the skip was delivered much later than expected, the company has appologized and made some compensation.

777 Group. UK Demolition Contractors.

158 Beddington Ln, Croydon CR0 4TE, UK – 020 8689 6861

Very good and reliable skip hire service. Good communication and nothing is too much hassle for them.

Managed to hire a skip to clear out furniture. Skip delivered on time and removed promptly. It would be good if the skips had covers for overnight, as people tend to dump their stuff in your skips, this is annoying and costs money due to space consumption. Had it delivered in the south London area. Price was reasonable.

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 Thornton Heath

Brgr&Beer

1 Matthews Yard, Croydon CR0 1FF, UK

Menus are quite flimsy as they're paper, meaning they're quite dirty. The food itself is good, a nice vibe with an adequate selection of drinks. Nice for a social outing with friends. Games such as table tennis and fussball are also available, good place!

Very delicious burgers, good serving size for price. Nice selection of beers on tap. The pub istelf has good entertainment: table tennis, foosball ,and a small console gaking lounge. Clean accessible toilets, too. Outdoor seating available. Staff friendly.

Pizza Hut Restaurants

59/61 N End, Croydon CR0 1TG, UK – 020 8680 1086

Over priced for bread and cheese like most pizza huts so nothing new there. Good family vibe with lots of space... seating upstairs. The stuff are nice and are never too out of site. Toilets need to be cleaned other then that it wasn't dirty. Salad bar was a joke but when the food did arrived it was hot and of an standard you would expect from pizza hut.

Staff are lovely and attentative. Pizza takes a little longer than usual but comes out on point. Thanks again for making me too full to go shopping afterwards!

Pizza Express

48 George St, Croydon CR0 1PD, UK – 020 8681 2550

As you expect, good food at a good price. clean and tidy

i like the food here, but there isn't much selection for muslims since only the chicken is halal. it is quite expensive when eating in groups and customer service really does vary. i've encountered very sweet waiters and very rude ones too. i personally prefer the pizza express in Croydon than i do anywhere else.
