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

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.

The fact that it opens on a Saturday until 5pm won me over!

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.

Good customer service and an array of self service machines and coin counter available for account holders ....saves a lot of time especially during busy periods

Lloyds Bank

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

Empathetic staff. They understand our situation and attempt to help instead of sounding like a computer, which has been my experience with few other Lloyds branches in Croydon and Canary wharf. Suresh renders an awesome service and so does his staff.

The (almost) British national bank! Pity its not!

Dental Surgeries

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

London Road Dental Centre

227 London Rd, Croydon CR0 2RL, UK – 020 8684 1928

I've been attending this practise for 30 years and always found them to be very helpful and professional. Going to the dentist can often be a very nerve racking experience, but the lead practitioner is very good with children, and putting people at ease.

I have never had problem with this dentist they are always polite and helpful and do not keep on waiting

Park Lane Dental

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

I was suffering with alot of pressure in my gums and extremely sensitive teeth. My usual dentish could not offer me same day appointment. After calling several dentist Park Lane Dental was kind enough to offer me same day appointment. The dentist was amazing and very helpful. Its only been few days and I am already much better. Thank you so much for a fantastic service.

I registered last week, as I live closely to the practice. I had an appointment Monday this week and my Dental problem was resolved efficiently and by a very competent Dental Surgeon Diana. Many thanks, Callum

Bethlem Royal Hospital

Monks Orchard Rd, Beckenham BR3 3BX, UK – 020 3228 6000

Fundamentally the place has alot of room for improvement. The system is a mess. The treatment of some of the patients is pretty bad. Some of the staff need more training and need to be more organised. Some people feel the place has turned their life around but many feel disappointed. In terms of the actual psychology itself, there is so much more psychology professionals in the world need to learn to in order to be able to truly help some of the patients here or anywhere. This is supposedly one of, if not the best hospitals in the world for autism and yet they probably don't even understand 10% of what they need to. On the bright side of things, the place does have quite a nice woodland setting and so plenty of room for fresh air and nature walks which are truly beneficial for almost any health problem. It has quite a few activities and some good facilities like a swimming pool, gym hall and creative facilities including a pottery class. The food isn't too bad and generally the atmosphere is friendly so don't be too afraid. If you've been sectioned, once the team build trust in you due to your good behaviour you will gradually get more and more freedom to leave the ward and then the hospital. Eventually you are even allowed to stay elsewhere overnight. Overall I would say this place is ok and I neither liked it or disliked it. However, there are times I hated it and times I loved it.

Very good hospital first they stole my shoes then they gave it back to me

Factory Lane Reuse and Recycling Centre

Just been to recycle all my bits, asked a man if they take domestic waste and he said yeah then he started picking all my bits up to dispose off, they are so helpful here everytime I recycle. Thanks croydon recycling 👍

No idea where these negative feedbacks coming from. Staff is great and very helpfull.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Croydon

Pizza Express

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

Overall great, been here twice. Food is great. Service is a bit slow though. Sometimes seems like they are not fussed about helping much, but doing it anyway after a second thought...

I've been twice. The pizza is crispy and tasty, but the staff always take long to take the orders. Other inconvenience is that the toilets (both gents and ladies) were freezing (couldn't spot any heating radiator). Poor the one that will use the basin, lol.


36 Addington Village Rd, Croydon CR0 5AQ, UK – 01689 842057

Another nice chain restaurant of Harvester. Service, staff & food were amazing. The size of the portions were not compromised (compared to one of my last reviews). The restaurant is very clean but the cleanliness of washrooms could have been improved. Make sure to register your number plate inside the restaurant to avoid a parking penalty (parking is free for customers for 3 hours). I will recommend this restaurant to anyone :) Thanks.

Food quality varies hugely from visit to visit. They need to try a lot harder to get more consistency. Just about OK if you are looking for a quick and cheap meal. But go during the daytime when you get a much better deal.

YO! Sushi

House of Fraser, Centrale Shopping Centre, 21 North End Road, Croydon CR0 1TY, UK – 020 8181 4495

Spend most lunchtimes in this place. Never had a problem and always happy with everything.

Tucked in the basement of House of Fraser. Small set up. Food was constantly replenished on the conveyor belt and tasted good.

I think it's a lovely nursery staff are very friendly children have lots on offer and look very happy x

Its a very welcoming nursery in my opinion. The staff are friendly and caring and the rooms are clean with lots of activities on offer. The garden is lovely with lots of nice areas for the kids. I'd recommend it to friends.

Castle Day Nursery

The Memorial Hall, Purley Oaks Rd, South Croydon CR2 0NR, UK – 07903 915102

My son has flourished at castle day nursery. The staff really know the children and care about them. I was so worried about sending him somewhere but they really helped him to settle. The staff make sure to support children at home by communicating with parents on specific issues that may arise so that you can work together.

My son has been going to Castle Day Nursery for 2 years and has loved every minute spent there. He will be moving on to reception in September but his little brother can't wait to start his adventure at Castle Day in the new school year. Highly recommend this nursery.

Supportive, proactive very well managed. Everything they do seems to revolve around the youngsters and my son has increased his confidence, maturity and outlook. Wish I went there!

A very good school that has to contend with " The Croydon Factor" and Political Correctness, that seems to have crept in recently - which may affect the future success of the school.

Cumnor House School

168 Pampisford Rd, South Croydon CR2 6DA, UK – 020 8660 3445

Very good school with great staff and wonderful children it has great education but the school is small and it is in a nice area it also has matches which are great .

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
