Banks

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.

HSBC Bank Plc

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

TSB Bank

Dental Surgeries

Purley Whites Dental Care

143 Haling Park Rd, South Croydon CR2 6NN, UK – 020 8649 7902

My dentist is Dr Roxsandra and I have to say..she is brilliant!

I was referred to this dental practice by NHS-emergency service once suffering for a terrible toothache. And since my new place turned out to be just around corner, so I ended up to registering with them as well. The staff is always friendly and polite and willing to do their best. Every single time they truly care about their patients and this is what makes me to provide them with the highest rating.

Croydon Dental Care

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

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 .

I was greeted by the lovely receptionists, was seen promptly and the dentist was very understanding. I have been going here for years and have never had a problem

Family Dental Practice

262 Portland Rd, London SE25 4SL, UK – 020 8654 1434

My recent appointment with this surgery has shown that staff of this surgery are friendly, accommodating, and make every effort to cater for patience needs. Both my daughter and I rate this surgery as top quality excellent. Upon my recommendation, my daughter finally registered with this surgery, the dentist she has assigned to had found that much of the work that she had done to her teeth by another surgery was totally unnecessary (not to mention pricey). She provided my daughter with the correct diagnosis and treatment, that her teeth are much much better! She can now crunch all of her foods including her chicken bones! So citizens if you are thinking of attending this surgery, rest assured you would receive the best treatment from any of the dentists at the surgery, as they are ALL very good (I have had access to them in times of emergency when my own dentist was unavailable). This blog is from someone who had a terrible fear of dentist ............. my family is safe with this surgery that I would not change it.

Very good hospatalaties. Jenny is the best practition ever dentist i mean

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.

BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital

Poppy Ln, Shirley Oaks Village, Croydon CR9 8AB, UK – 020 8655 5500

My experience at Shirley Oaks was great. I was an NHS patient having a left inguinal hernia repair and after reading the reviews online I was apprehensive at the thought of attending this hospital. The staff i encountered were extremely helpful. The receptionist, nurses, cafe staff and the surgeons. All very professional. When I had my consultation, it was very fast and over with within 5 minutes. I felt that wasn't enough time to get my head around things and ask the Dr questions, However, he was amazing and has done a great job. Thank you. I would recommend this hospital as I have experienced nothing but care, attentiveness and a willingness to be helped by the staff here. One again, thank you.

Good facilities, food and waiting time for treatment via private healthcare. Day nurses were however disappointing. One nurse was especially rude whenever asked questions and rarely checked-in to ask if the patient was ok after undergoing a major surgery. The consultant did a good job but only provided an explanation/summary of quite a major operation after being promoted. On that basis, I would only recommend this hospital as a lower-mid tier private health care option.

Purley Oaks Household Reuse and Recycling Centre

Brighton Rd, Purley CR8 1DG, UK – 020 8726 6200

As I'm always on foot, I go straight to on-site office ask for help to areas not easily accessible to the elderly or disabled. Works for me and I recycle over 80% of my waste.

Staff tend to leave you alone to get on with. Not a bad thing in my opinion.

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.

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!

This is a lovely place with really friendly staff who will go out if their way to accommodate you. The cocktails are amazing!!!! A great garden for relaxing in with a scrummy Turkish coffee.

Brasserie Vacherin - Croydon

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

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.

We visit here quite regularly and it is quite good. I do recommend their lobster dishes. A little pricey but you can get their loyalty card for 15% discount.

Bagatti's

56-58 S End, Croydon CR0 1DP, UK – 020 8686 9649

Hidden gem in Croydon. Really delicious Italian food, many of the staff are Italian and it feels very authentic. The tiramisu was the best I've ever tasted. If you're looking for a nice place to eat in Croydon, I would highly recommend this. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food.

Lovely birthday meal for the whole family. Food absolutely delicious, service great and all staff very helpful. And they play Stevie Wonder birthday song very loud with your cake! Everyone had a fantastic evening. Can’t fault. Thank you
