Good helping staff

Barclays Bank

6 Clarence St, Kingston upon Thames KT1 1NY, UK – 0345 734 5345

Helpful staff but not always on the ball when it comes to picking up the slack such as when needing to bank and there is a big line of people being served by one person behind the counter.

Very nice

NatWest Bank

5 Market Place, Kingston upon Thames KT1 1JX, UK – 0345 788 8444

A conveniently located branch with the well trained personnel.

This definitely is a NatWest bank, contrary to a previous review. Helpful and efficient.

Local Chambers of Commerce for KT1 1SU. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Kingston is relatively close to Surbiton which in turn considered by some as Capital of London's Suburbia

Kingston Adult Education

22 Hollyfield Rd, Surbiton KT5 9AL, UK – 020 8547 6875

Good venue, well equipped classrooms, nice cafe, helpful reception staff and even modern boards telling you which room your class is in, so a lot more sophisticated than the previous venues. Car park is very popular but there is bike parking if you fancy being green. Classes really depend on the individual teacher, I'd say - my experience of the French and Spanish conversation teachers has been excellent, especially the wonderful Monsieur Paul.

Good

Dental Surgeries

Surbiton Smile Centre - Cosmetic, Implant & General Dentistry

148 Ewell Rd, Surbiton KT6 6HE, UK – 020 8339 9333

As I sit here with my perfectly straight teeth, I can finally review the fantastic Smile Centre. I'm a nervous patient but the staff here put me at ease immediately. I've had many procedures done here & have always been impressed by the professional service & genuine friendliness. Last year I decided to have my bottom teeth straightened & was put under the care of their amicable orthodontist Theo. His advice was comprehensive & I understood the options available. I chose to pay on a monthly basis, which I think is a wonderful option. As the brace was fitted to the inside of my teeth as requested, it did not show at all. I highly recommend Smile Centre to anyone who is a nervous patient or seeking cosmetic dentistry. They have been brilliant with me on every occasion. Dr Simin is also a lovely & fantastic dentist & the hygienist there is the best I have ever encountered.

For many years I have been frightened to go to a dentist for my teeth. Iv not had many problems so I have put it off going until one day I had a bad pain in my tooth and I needed to find a dentist ASAP. I was recommended the smile centre and I was told to go and see Simin and her team so I reluctantly made the call. I explained the pain I was in and I was told to come in straight away which I thought was an amazing service but still I was feeling sick knowing I had to go there. From the time I opened there door to go in I was welcomed by the wonderful receptionist and introduced to Simin within minutes of waiting. Simin managed to calm me down within minutes and made me feel at ease with what she needed to do to make my pain go away. My feeling of being sick was disappearing as Simin made me feel comfortable in her surgery. Simin is a master at giving injections as I felt nothing when she had to give me an injection and within 10 minutes my pain was going. After everything was done Simin and her brilliant team kept me there until I was fully ok and to be honest at this point I was happy to stay there all day as they are really nice people to have a chat with and they don’t make you feel that they are in a rush to get you out the door ready for the next patient. Simin you are amazing along with your team and I would fully recommend the smile centre to everyone. If your nervous like I was go and see Simin she is brilliant with nervous patients and I’m sure once you go there you won’t be nervous anymore about going. Thank you so much for everything you have done and I can’t wait to see you and your team of wonderful ladies at my next appointment.

The Dentist Kt3

We've been using this as our family dentist for about 14 years. Its very well run, dentists are great, never kept waiting too long and friendly reception staff

Kingston Hill Dental Practice

21 Kingston Hill, Kingston upon Thames KT2 7PW, UK – 020 8546 3649

My fear of Dentists and Orthodontists had finally been overcome! After years of contemplating having braces fitted, the invaluable advice and support provided by both the Orthodontist (Gavin) & Dentist (Priya), allowed me to make one of the best decisions I've made and had the braces fitted! Regular check ups, flexible appointment times and a remarkable change in the appearance of my teeth have all made this year long experience worthwhile - I'll be sure to visit them regularly for the rest of my life! The dental practice staff are such a friendly bunch of people and it's truly a pleasure to return for appointments due to their positive and caring attitude towards their patients!

Another fantastic appointment today as always. The treatment that I require was explained in full and estimates for the treatment up front. After not visiting the dentist for some time after my life was flipped upside down due to the loss of my mother I have a long list of treatment required. Priya went through the list of treatment I need and estimates for all of these treatments. After seeing the amount of treatment that I require and estimates for the costs of this treatment I did contemplate moving to another dental practice as an NHS patient. However, Priya has completed various fillings for me in the past and if I need them done then I trust her and the team to provide the excellent service I have come to expect. Realistic solutions were recomended by the team at the practice for the costs and they are all very honest when it comes to answering any questions. I won’t lie, I have never looked forward to dental appointments. But if anyone is going to stop my fear and complete the work I need then Priya is the person I want doing it.

Claremont Medical Centre

2 Glenbuck Rd, Surbiton KT6 6BS, UK – 020 8399 2280

Have been good in the past although difficult to make an appointment in advance. As I work in cental London I've got few opportunities to book an appointment without taking a holiday. I'm currently stuck on a train with an appointment at 7 which I will miss. No options whatsoever to inform them about it and to see if I can be seen later. Please have a phone line available for as long as the surgery is open. Thanks

Dr Hanson and Dr Kochar are the best. Dr Hanson has best manner and helped me with my issue every well.

Kingston Health Centre

10 Skerne Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 5AD, UK – 020 8549 4747

Wonderful surgery - everyone is so helpful, friendly and professional. I really am grateful that I can get early morning, evening and weekend appointments. It is very helpful to have extended surgery hours when you work.

Out of hours service was perfect. Courteous, sympathetic and efficient staff. Even the multistorey car park was reasonably priced and very close by.

Giggs Hill Surgery

14 Raphael Dr, Thames Ditton KT7 0EB, UK – 020 8398 8619

They have made vast improvements in recent months with appointments. I suffer with quite bad anxiety attacks and don't like blood tests... :(! They have always been helpful... I must say the lady at reception (Jackie) is the most compassionate and sweetest person you could ever wish to talk to... She made my appointment super fast too. 5 stars for the member of staff *****

appointment on time. courteous and friendly advice

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.

Kingston Hospital

Galsworthy Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 7QB, UK – 020 8546 7711

I went for a review of an injury at the fracture clinic. I arrived very early and settled in for a long wait for my appointment, but in fact I was called 20 minutes before my allocated time. So it's definitely worth arriving early and using the patient check in. I was assessed efficiently and with care by the consultant and given a plastic walking cast instead of the horrible plaster one, which I am really happy with. Making the follow up appointment was simple and straightforward on my way out.

Arrived at 7:15 An hour long wait at A&E to be seen, seems the Drs only arrive after 8:30. Once seen by Dr things really quick and efficient. Sent to X-Ray and back to Dr very quickly. Nurse and Drs really friendly and supportive. Just the reception at A&E really not friendly or helpful, when I asked to plug in my phone to charge at a wall socket in the waiting room (as it was about to die and last thing on my mind was waiting for my phone to charge before going to A&E, and sitting there for an hour didn't help) she was very rude and aggressive.

New Victoria Hospital

184 Coombe Lane West, Kingston upon Thames KT2 7EG, UK – 020 8949 9000

Best place ever....... Thanks to my Consultant . The food is like you are in hilton hotel or five star hotel(best food ). The Nurses are always there when you need them and are very very friendly and professional. Rooms are highly cleaned. My Surgeon 😷 is My Hero.

I had surgery for the first time at New Victoria Hospital in October. From entering the building at 0645 on the Wednesday and leaving on the Thursday at 11am the staff and in particular the two nurses who looked after me were outstanding nothing was too much trouble. I was petrified of having surgery but everything went so well. Thank you very much for all your help and support it has been outstanding.

The Wolverton Centre for Sexual Health

Kingston Hospital N H S Trust, Galsworthy Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 7QB, UK – 020 8974 9331

Such a positive experience, extremely helpful and professional staff, very personal approach. I came into the walk-in centre early morning for a consultatin and got seen pretty much straight away, also managed to get a procedure done that normally requires an appointment since the nurse happened to have a free slot (thank you Lindsay!) Very happy & highly recommended!

Went for a walk in. Got called in after only 20 min waiting for registration and after that I waited just 10min to see one of the Dr. They were all very nice, efficient with great advise. I felt like they knew what they were doing.

20 Chapel Mill Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT1 3GZ, UK

The staff are generally pretty friendly and helpful and the facilities are straight-forward, BUT BEWARE: make sure you aim to arrive at least 45 minutes before closing time because they frequently close up early. Twice I've arrived half an hour/twenty minutes before closing with a loaded car and they've already locked incoming cars out.

I walked there, and saw a 'no pedestrian' sign. The entrance guard said that he can help me with the chemical waste which I brought with me. He is so kind but I think it's quite dangerous.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Kingston upon Thames

Frangos

The Rotunda, Clarence St, Kingston upon Thames KT1 1QJ, UK – 020 8549 7998

Really good food, polite and nice staff and friendly environment. Deffo recommend it.

A good place to eat perhaps before the cinema however, Nandos has better chicken and especially the peri peri chips. Still value though

Ha Ru Restaurant

50-52 High St, New Malden KT3 4EZ, UK – 020 3489 1616

It does have good food but something just seems to be lacking. Yes the food is Korean but not special in anyway. Staff are friendly and portions are ok, nothing amazing. But still a thumbs up to support the business.

Cosy little place, kind and friendly staff, good food, decent prices.

Akbar Tandoori Restaurant

54 Richmond Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 5EH, UK – 020 8546 6835

Very good food at affordable cost. Friendly service and tailor food according to our need. Less or more salt, oil and spicy

Was looking for an informal curry house near Kingston Hospital and was pleasantly surprised with Akbar. The restaurant is small but welcoming. Portions were quite generous, tasty and not sat in a sea of oil (which you see in a lot of restaurants/takeaways). Losing one star as my boyfriend's duck jalfrezi tasted like a curry 'base' and didn't have much flavour, so it seems you have to know what to order here (my green chicken masala was amazing). Plus they sold '660ml' bottles of Cobra when in fact they were 620ml.

Nursery and Preschools

Coombe Day Nursery

6 Norbiton Ave, Kingston upon Thames KT1 3QT, UK – 020 8549 5343

I have been working at Coombe day nursery for 8 months and I feel very happy there. I have had great support from the management team as I also was a new member of staff. The children are very happy, also their parents trust us with the well being of their children and see on a daily basis through the online journals how much their children are learning. We are a great team who help any new staff fit in as best as we can.

Glad to work here. All the staff members and management are a strong team. Pulling together to make children and parents happy, every single day. The place is always clean, the meals are healthy and the atmosphere is friendly and happy. The room size and displays are just perfect for every age, and teaching and learning are excellent!

Educare Small School

12 Cowleaze Rd, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6DZ, UK – 020 8547 0144

My 5 year old Son joined Kindergarten aged 3 and has continued into the Hall. He absolutely loves Educare (as do we), he enjoys the active learning, forest school and the many field trips/ school outings. All perfect for the developmental needs of young children. He regularly tells me he felt like he "played all day" even when the day has been focussed around maths, literacy and writing. There's no pressure on the children yet he is meeting or exceeding in all of the Early Years measures. The Kindergarten is especially caring with fantastic adult to child ratios (lower than anywhere else we're aware of in Kingston). Throughout the school the teachers are warm and friendly and know every child by name. Educare is a wonderfully nurturing, children are treated as individuals exactly what children need at this age.

An amazing school which both my boys have been lucky enough to attend all the way through (3 to 11). My youngest is currently at the end of year 5. Small teacher-to-pupil ratio, no homework, no testing, no SATS, lots of hands-on, play-based learning and opportunities for discussion. My eldest son who is now at secondary left Educare with the same fun loving, inquisitive nature as he had when he started there as a 3 year old. I don't think there are many parents around who can truthfully say the same. As they say, you can retake exams but you can't retake your childhood.
