NatWest

1393 London Rd, Norbury, London SW16 4AL, UK – 0345 788 8444

I found a casher woman really helpful ! Natwest number 1

Helpful staff although queues are too long and zero privacy really.

NatWest

54 Streatham High Rd, London SW16 1BZ, UK – 0345 788 8444

This is, a as far as now, my favourite NatWest branch... Well, maybe Camden Town having as a rival....

HSBC

103 Streatham Hill, London SW2 4UE, UK – 0345 740 4404

I went to the branch today as a walk-in client. I waited only two minutes and was able to help myself to water. I spoke with a friendly employee who had a similar humour and so our conversation was nice and informative. She was very clear with information and was able to answer questions that I had.

Local Chambers of Commerce for SE27 0HZ. 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!
Anerley Town Hall & Business Centre

Anerley Road, London SE20 8BD, UK – 020 8676 5666

It is a beautiful and well-maintained historic building. The staff are friendly and helpful. I am running my morning yoga class there on every Wednesday. The main hall with the big window, high-ceiling and wooden floor is perfect environment for the mindfulness movement practice.

Council services and library are no longer at this building. Anerley Town Hall is located opposite Anerley National Rail station with links to London and Croydon and has a good bus service from Bromley, Croydon, Norwood and Crystal Palace. It is a locally listed Victorian building with character and charm. Its location and facilities make it an ideal venue for wedding receptions, parties, dances, clubs, meetings and conferences.

Dental Surgeries

Haynes Dental & Implant Clinic

9 Thurlow Park Rd, London SE21 8JB, UK – 020 8674 1838

Fantastic dental service. They were very accommodating with appointments and urgent work I required. Very friendly and welcoming and made me feel totally at ease, minimal pain and discomfort. Cannot recommend enough for both hygiene and dental work.

I was lucky enough to come across Haynes Dental Practise earlier this year year having decided to face my lifelong dental phobia. I cannot thank them enough for the fantastic advice and treatment I have received and continue to receive. I have totally had my faith restored in dentists and would highly recommend Haynes Dental Practise without hesitation to everyone

Infinity Dental Care

Streatham Hill Healthcare Centre, 41A-C Streatham Hill, London SW2 4TP, UK – 020 3049 5959

Lovely staff, Amanda and her colleagues are always very informative and accommodating. They always make me feel at ease. We have had a few different dentists over the years. Normally you have to book well in advance in order to get a suitable appointment. Message for management :chairs that are being held together by duct tape in a clinic not hugely welcoming and doesn’t give the right impression of the for the patients. Especially with the constantly increasing fees they charge I’m sure this is something they can easily rectify.

I strongly recommend Infinity Dental Care service. They are very professional especially in the emergency situation. I lost my front plate unexpectedly. I tried to make emergency appointment with many dental care in London. My problem was solved by Infinity Dental Care Team within 24 hours (unbelievable!). It was also a nice surprise to me as the new plate is much better than the previous one. Infinity Dental Care team is friendly and will always help you. They deliver outstanding service! Thank you.

MK Vasant MBE and Dental Associates

1210 London Rd, London SW16 4DN, UK – 020 8764 1424

Best Dentist in London. Strongly recommend to anyone for private treatment. Dr Manny Vasant is very friendly and caring. My last dentist was never as thorough. The whole team at the practice are warm and professional. The hygienist Ben is a wonderful man full of character. I now look forward to my appointments.

Excellent multi-disciplinary dentist with on site lab.

The Greyswood Practice

66 Eastwood St, London SW16 6PX, UK – 020 8769 0845

I joined this practice in late 2017. Ive not had an amazing experience at other doctors surgeries and i only usually go to the docs if im really ill. This year i had to go several times and on each ocassion was seen by a different doctor. Each doctor i saw was beyond exceptional. They listened and took their time with me and explored every symptom i had. They were thorough and just completely put me at ease. Thank god for these doctors. I feel seriously lucky to be living in this area. Reception team could do with a bit of a nudge but the superb doctors make up for that.

This is the best practice I’ve ever been registered at. Once you have an appointment (which can be a bit of hassle as it’s phone only from 8am for same day bookings - with most gone by 8.15) - all of the staff are friendly and helpful. They have had a fair bit of rotation of GPs and Locums the last year, but it’s settled down again now. Appointments run pretty much on time and they are very accommodating. - especially good with children.

Ghufoor Dr Zahid

Streatham Park Surgery/91 Mitcham La, London SW16 6LY, UK – 020 8835 0077

The service provided by this surgery is 100% nothing is to much trouble and a visit will always be made if required.

Seldoc

Dulwich Community Hospital, E Dulwich Grove, East Dulwich, London SE22 8PT, UK – 020 8693 9066

Brilliant service from start to finish and feel very fortunate to have access to such a service out of hours, especially when I know I wouldn’t get a look in at my GP if I called during the week. I dealt with three separate members of staff on the phone and in person and they were all fantastic; personable, informative and supportive. My concerns were with my baby daughter and I really valued the fact we were given an appointment to come In for rather than have to just sit and wait late in to the evening for a walk in. Thank you Seldoc!

Me & my daughter we’re both seen Wednesday night at Seldoc at Dulwich Hospital,I cannot praise the staff from start to finish. We were both seen by Faith and I have to say she was fantastic,she listened, didn’t rush us and was very supportive.

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.

Find Recycling Centres

Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre

2 Vale St, West Norwood, London SE27 9PA, UK – 020 7926 9000

I came here to dump some garden waste this afternoon, Sunday. Having emptied my bins of decaying waste, I was asked by the very helpful attendant whether I would like him to wash out my bins - and indeed, whether I would like to wash my hands. Another attendant helped dispose of other rubbish. All three men were very helpful and took pride in their work. Excellent service.

Staff were really helpful. Even told me where I could catch a bus back home. Hours are really convenient, as I work Monday to Friday.

Emmaus Lambeth

9 Knight's Hill, West Norwood, London SE27 0JD, UK – 020 8761 4276

Emmaus Lambeth is a treasure trove of pre-loved and restored furniture. I bought a stylish, vintage 1960's sideboard from Emmaus - and it was a bargain at £160. Would highly recommend popping in to see what they have in stock.

Excellent for cheap furniture, often with a bit of character. I kitted out an unfurnished flat using emmaus. Upstairs they sell tableware and linen, cushions, and other household wares, also good when starting out.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around West Norwood

The Beulah Spa Harvester

41 Beulah Hill, London SE19 3DS, UK – 020 8653 2051

A Harvester at the smarter end of the chain. Relaxed dining. A few glitches and our waitress wasn't the smartest or most enthusiastic button in the box, but was happy to follow our directions when things went a little wrong. Overall experience fine. Food good.

Excellent Customer Service, food and atmosphere. This restaurant has improved ten fold on all levels, The customer service was attentive and friendly, the food was yummy and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. I visited quite a long time ago and was so disappointed I decided not to return. I gave it another go recently and was extremely impressed with the whole experience. Clearly Harvester have made some changes (I reckon to the staff team)and its worked wonderfully. I Will definitely return.

The Clink Brixton

HMP Brixton, Jebb Ave, London SW2 5XF, UK – 020 8678 9007

Just got back from The Clink in Brixton. Fantastic experience. Check in staff were helpful and informative. Staff in training were attentive, pleasant and very helpful, good atmosphere. Wish I could name staff. Starter, main course and dessert served. Presentation was excellent and each course left you looking forward to the next (ordered Apple Charlotte twice!!). Very good value for money whilst contributing to an excellent cause and will be going back again and again.

I'm giving The Clink a 4 star based on the whole experience. What a great idea to have this restaurant to help inmates in preparation of their release date. Extremely interesting being inside the prison and being able to talk to the people and learn about their experience in the programme. Food-wise it wasn't great. Portions were quite small and a bit bland. The best by far were the desserts and macaroons. Very very good. I would recommend everybody to visit The Clink and help spread the word about it's existence.

Nursery and Preschools

Dulwich Village Pre-School

Old Alleynian Club, Dulwich Common, London SE21 7HA, UK – 020 8693 2402

Enjoyable with friends and people who live in the area.

DULWICH MONTESSORI NURSERY SCHOOL

St Stephens Church, College Rd, London, Dulwich SE21 7HN, UK – 020 8766 0091

Dulwich Montessori is a fantastic nursery and I would thoroughly recommend it. The staff are all exceptional . My daughter would daily come home speaking highly of each of her teachers. She gained so much confidences whilst at the nursery. My daughter really enjoys structure and the Montessori teachings really helped her to do so well while at the nursery. As a parent I always loved reading her blue book to find out how her day had been. She has now left the nursery but still loves to come back and visit. I work locally and have recommend a number of parents in the local area, who have also sent their children there and are also impressed.

Having put two children through Dulwich Montessori a fews back, who are now thriving at primary school, I am back again with my third who I know will have an equally enriching Montessori experience as her sisters. The staff here are phenomenal.

Penge Community Pre-school

Anerley Methodist Church, London SE20 8QA, UK – 020 8289 6771

We love Penge Preschool and so do our kids. The staff are great at entertaining and taking care of the mass of different kids. The Hall is nice and has an out door space. They have lots of good equipment and are always making a fun day for all.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Dunraven School

94/98 Leigham Ct Rd, London SW16 2QB, UK – 020 8677 2431

Miss West is a sarcastic witch who does not care how parents feel. Probably because she doesn't have a maternal bone in her body. I can think of many others that deserve the position she has other than her. However Mr Boyle is amazing and in my opinion has the children's best interests at heart.

A throughly decent school more should be done to encourage integration, distinctive school values and promte technology advancement

Judith Kerr Primary School

62-68 Half Moon Ln, Herne Hill, London SE24 9JE, UK – 020 7738 6481

This primary school is just an excellent school! It is an English-German school and the kids can learn both languages! My little brother used to go there and he was really happy there!

St Bartholomew's Primary School

Public & Preparatory Schools

Oakfield Preparatory School

126-128 Thurlow Park Rd, London SE21 8HP, UK – 020 8670 4206

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to all 400 students of Oakfield Preparatory School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff, who helped me move the heavy dome into the hall and also brought me a mug of tea. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. I was even treated to lunch. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, learning about the Moon, travelling through the Solar System and even discovering Natural Selection with Charles Darwin. Thank you Oakfield Preparatory School for a very pleasant visit.

Excellent school. I have visited several times and always been very impressed. Great facilities, high standards and friendly atmosphere too.

Well run independent school with lovely atmosphere. Good facilities and its accessible as well. Not too close to train/tube links but bus runs close by.

My sister went here and she always said it was fantastic. My girlfriend went here too and it is probably the best girls school in South West London.
