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.

Dental Surgeries

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

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!

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.

Brigstock Family Practice

83 Brigstock Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7JH, UK – 020 8689 7800

This practice is excellent. I'm with them for about 10 years now and never had any problems with appointments or prescriptions. Very happy with service.

A brilliant service I had an appointment at the surgery recently . The service I received from reception and the doctors was excellent. I would strongly recommend the services to any of my family or friends looking for a new surgery. New Building is Amazing!!!

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

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

Karnavar

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

Great place to eat. Very tasty food. The only downside for me personally was that the deserts were nothing special and were very overpriced. Their Oreo cheesecake was very average. Food was excellent so I would recommend going here.

Great fish curry! Service at lunchtime could benefit from speed a little. Will visit again in the evening or during the weekend. Well done guys!

KK's Texan Grill House

300 High St, Croydon CR0 1NG, UK – 020 8680 2211

The t-bone steak is tasty flavour banging, must try as a medium and once you've eaten here this place will easily become a regular spot for you! Great choice of non alcoholic and liquor available.

Recently went for Father's Day dinner in a group on 10 people. Everything from booking the table the week before to paying the bill at the end was a fantastic experience due to the amazing service with a smile. The food never fails to impress and they serve lovely cocktails aswell. It is a very small restaurant and has a lovely cosy homely atmosphere with very friendly staff. Highly recommend!

Tre Fratelli

25-29 S End, Croydon CR0 1BE, UK – 020 8681 1171

A lovely independent restaurant. Italian with a hint of Portuguese. Food to suit whatever mood your in and the staff are friendly and helpful too.

One of my favorites! Friendly staff, delicious food & very reasonably priced.

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.

Our daughter has been attending the nursery for two years and she loved it. We all loved it. MMI team genuinely like children, they create long lasting relationships with both children and parents. 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!

I highly recommend this school for its academic excellence, its warmth and the values it instills in its pupils. Thank you, Cumnor, for a excellent all-round education for our son.
