Banks

Lloyds Bank

95 George St, Croydon CR9 2NS, UK – 0345 300 0000

Very empathetic & helpful staff! I’ve been a loyal Lloyd’s customer for 18+ years and was grateful to receive prompt, friendly service at this branch! Karen was lovely and very helpful.

It is an ok bank with some good staff. It is an entirely different matter you should be banking with Lloyds at all, though...

The Co-op Bank Croydon

91 George St, Croydon CR0 1LD, UK – 020 8649 8166

I love this bank-ethical investments and incredible customer service!

Rarely any queues, staff are very helpful and a pleasant place.

HSBC

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.

Local Chambers of Commerce for CR0 2PL. 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!

Dental Surgeries

Croydon Dental Care

60-62 Church St, Croydon CR0 1RB, UK – 020 8686 6222

Great dental surgery well cleaned and the receptionists are polite and helpful. I recommend Diana the dentist the rest are not as good. Shes the best dentist I've EVER seen. I dont book to see anyone else under any circumstance as ive been dissapointed!

I have to date had no problems with this dental practice. Now it's not the most modern looking of environments but the rooms are clean and organised. What's important to me are the people. It is very important that they are polite and professional. I found Croydon Dental Practice after having a really negative experience from two previous dental surgeries. Being a nurse myself I expect a high quality of care and I do understand practice limitations. Nothing is more reassuring than having a professional take the time to listen to your medical history, address your concerns and promptly fix your problem in a timely manner. On this occasion my filling fell out leaving me in excruciating pain as my nerves were exposed. The Dentist made a quick assessment and filled the hole taking time to explain his concerns regarding the filling and my options for future treatment. I did not require an injection thankfully. I dreaded this more than anything so it was such a relief to have had it done in one appointment. I am so grateful. Positive experience from reception to completion .

Bywood Dental Practice

6 Bywood Ave, Croydon CR0 7RA, UK – 01322 555858

Very good dentist

Smile Dental Practice

79 Addiscombe Rd, Croydon CR0 6SE, UK – 020 8649 7911

Our family are so happy with this dental practice! The reception staff are great - always listening and remembering small details and they send through reminder text messages about appointments - a must have for a busy mum! Melissa is my dentist and her explanations and friendly professional manner are what set her apart from other dentists! My two children (3 & 6) love going to the dentist to see Melissa. That just says it all. Would give more stars if I could!

Had to leave a review as i haven't felt this comfortable in a dentist in a while. I feel like people will always thank the dentist and no one else..The reception staff have been emailing me to help get an appointment. I told them i was very nervous and from the first reply i knew that this would be a good place to come to. They were so polite and chatty when i popped in on my way home from work to get a registration form which i love cos it made the whole experience less daunting. They gave me options too which was helpful and it didn't seem as if they cared about anything else but me as the patient which i loved! I didn't realize you could finance your dental work! So random but such a great idea! Thank you xx

Birdhurst Medical Practice

1 Birdhurst Ave, South Croydon CR2 7DX, UK – 020 8686 2070

Thank you to everyone at the surgery. This is a highly professional and welcoming surgery and I am so grateful to every member of the team. Recent events have meant I have needed to visit the surgery more often than usual and if it were not for the warmth and kindness of the staff recovery would have been far more challenging. Huge thanks for all your hard work and support.

Dr Saman Rahim

231 Violet Ln, Croydon CR0 4HN, UK – 020 8688 0333

Very good surgery found doctors and nurses very caring. Waiting room light and airy

You can get an appointment on the day in the morning if it's an emergency, or arrange a call back from the doctor. Doctors explain what the issue is using their medical book or printing information from the internet. Excellent service, receptionist very polite.

Dr J M Neve

194 Croydon Rd, Beckenham BR3 4DQ, UK – 020 8650 1274

I had to move out of London and the doctors and reception staff and nursing are not a patch on you guys miss you all

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

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!

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.

Recolight

265, Airport House, Purley Way, Croydon CR0 0XZ, UK – 020 8253 9750

A first rate service from start to finish. We needed lots of info filled in for Health & Safety reasons, Felisha was especially helpful and patient with our situation, as was everyone we spoke to in customer services, but Felisha really went the extra mile. We got there in the end and hope to have 3 very happy years getting rid of waste lamps trouble free....

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 Croydon

Apatura Turkish BBQ Restaurant & Bar

14 S End, Croydon CR0 1DL, UK – 020 8688 9416

Came here last night for our brother's 21st birthday and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing (and very filling) and the portions were great. The price was very decent, and every single one of us enjoyed what we had ordered. The service was also very great - quick and easy. It was the first time we had attended and will definitely be visiting again. So glad it's close by!

Family friendly dining. I rarely venture into a restaurant on a Saturday evening, let alone with my autistic son. We hadn't booked but they found us a quiet table away from the masses. This benefitted us all I am sure but my son felt safely tucked away from the noise. He even ate chicken shish! Great tasty food. Lovely fresh mint tea and the belly dancer was great fun. My daughter (8) got up to dance too and was treated really well. The whole family loved it and asked to return the next night. Thank you.

Brasserie Vacherin - Croydon

48-50 S End, Croydon CR0 1DP, UK – 020 8774 4060

Disappointing Mother's Day Lunch. We waited an hour and a half for our starters which were received with great delight. However, the mains were disappointing. The meat was fatty and the lobster bland...no one enjoyed it. We had to leave before dessert because service took so long. The waitress was very apologetic and offered to take the cost of the dessert and service charge off our final bill (which I wouldn't have paid anyway) but the food was sub par and not the treat I was hoping for my mum and mother in law. We won't be back!

Food was good though unfortunately I had to wait for a very long time for the first course and throughout the evening due to absent kitchen staff that evening. But, front of house did well to overcome it and compensated me generously with complimentary wine. Nice atmosphere and free wine. Will definitely try it again.

Boulevard

7-8 Ruskin Parade, Selsdon Road, Croydon, South Croydon CR2 6PW, UK – 020 8649 9990

I've been here a couple of times for a simple, but delicious meal, and at very reasonable prices (around £8-10 for a generous main course). The staff are friendly, and they have a few outdoor tables. They have a couple of vegetarian options but nothing vegan.

Great food at a great price. Always a nice atmosphere and staff are very friendly. I have been several times, sometimes with just my husband or parents but also a few times with large parties 20 to 30 people and the food is still fantastic, cant fault the service and all food came out at the same time. Can highly recommend

Nursery and Preschools

Bright Horizons Croydon Day Nursery and Preschool

48 Sydenham Rd, Croydon CR0 2EF, UK – 020 3780 7952

My daughter has been attending this nursery for almost 3.5 years. She started off in the baby room and recently graduated from preschool. Her journey was very smooth and her progress has been remarkable. She was cared well during all her stages of development and quite happy with the staff and the learning methods used. Thank you MMI for bring out the best in my daughter.

MMI nursery provides safe, warm and inviting environment for children.

The toys and books reflect the children's diversity and are used in a unsexist way. The children learn about a variety if things such as the seasons, the planets, the world around them, world geography, photosynthesis, maths, writing, etc. The teachers help the children develop from the point they are , offering support in order to them to reach their potential.

Harris Academy Purley

Kendra Hall Rd, South Croydon CR2 6DT, UK – 020 8681 1141

We have new teachers now and they seem to be nice. It's more of the students that affect the learning but besides that, the good school.

I go to this school and I already hate it.first there is always some kind of fight or beef every day,there are so many crowds and it gets annoying so you can't get to your lessons.The teachers are nice and friendly but sometimes when I am late just 5 seconds after the gates are closed I get a 50 min detention.lots of people are going to different skl like Woodcote and more.

My nephew has been a student since nursery, he has the confidence of an adult and the education has been well retained. Cumnor is a brilliant school. All the teachers are very attentive to each student needs but most of all the kids do follow the instructions as that's the Cumnor way
