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

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.

Dental Surgeries

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 .

Partner had an emergency appointment and they solved he problem in less then 10 minutes he was in had a tooth removed and left. Absolutely amazing definitely recommend them 100%

Very good dentist

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

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.

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.

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.

Is a very small dump but they take carpet, matresses, wood, landfill, bikes and other materials, they do not take oil at this dump

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.

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.

Karnavar

62 S End, Croydon CR0 1DP, UK – 020 8686 2436

They were outstanding. With relatives allergic to nuts and fish, the head chef came out and personally delivered all suitable food for the table for the boozy brunch. The way that food is served for brunch was a bit of a headache, but it is made to be understood and made to flow easily and legibly. As for the food, it was incredible. Traditional Indian cuisine, served with modernity I have never seen in all my 30 years. Will go again, once it's known I can afford to do it, but if you need to impress for a date, Karnavar is where you go. All the stars I can give.

Unusual Asian fusion food. Lots of flavours you do not come across in Traditional Indian restaurants. Good varied wine list and Draught Lager/Beers. Good service and reasonably priced for possible Michelin starred restaurant.

Kalpa

5-7 St James's Rd, Croydon CR0 2SB, UK – 020 8684 6661

Great food.. Lovely place.. Dosa n idly r my favourites.. Best South Indian food in croydon.. No doubt..

Good restaurant with authentic Tamil food however the wait times are excruciating even if you have booked well in advance. Once you finally get sat at a table the waiters take a long time to take your order and and even longer wait for food to arrive. Poor customer service but amazing food if you don't mind the long wait.

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.

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. Parents involvement is welcome and highly encouraged. We loved MMI and will miss each and every tram member. Thank you MMI! You are amazing!

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
