Banks

Lloyds Bank

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

Very empathetic & helpful staff! I’ve been a loyal Lloyd’s customer for 18+ years and was grateful to receive prompt, friendly service at this branch! Karen was lovely and very helpful.

It is an ok bank with some good staff. It is an entirely different matter you should be banking with Lloyds at all, though...

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

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.

Local Chambers of Commerce for CR7 6AZ. 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!

Gorgeous Town Centre building

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

Park Lane Dental

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

Great practice! Would recommend to all my friends and family

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.

Brigstock Dental & Implant Centre

97 Brigstock Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7JL, UK – 020 8689 6171

Best dentists !! Dr Patel has been my families dentist for 20+ years since I was the age of 3 ,although moved out of area a long time ago we still travel from a far just to see them, have tried other dentists closer and they have NEVER been as good!!!!!!! , so experienced and such brilliant service. Cannot recomend highly enough, family run - very attentive and friendly nothing is ever too much. amazing amazing amazing practice. Thank you so much for everything over the years Sarah and family

He is so friendly and welcoming, I feel like meeting a friend when i see him. I heat injection (who doesn't) he is so gentle I can hardly feel it. Thank you Rudy and the team you guys are rock

MK Vasant MBE and Dental Associates

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

Definitely recommend, first visit, nice staff, clean fresh atmosphere. Quick appointments and mindful dentists. Will update on progress shortly.

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.

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.

London Road Medical Centre

515 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7PB, UK – 020 8684 2161

I am very pleased with the service of this surgery. Staff included. Dr Khan takes the time to explain your symptoms and any medication that she prescribes for you. She also takes time to listen to you. This is a good thing as i find the medical field on the whole do not listen to the young or old people. The young are dismissed because they are young an deemed to be without knowledge and the old are neglected because they are already on the way to the grave, so why bother! Yes! unfortunately that has been the experience i have witnessed. This is why i say its good to be listened to.. Sumayyah Mootoo

This has been my G.P since I was a child, some of the staff at reception are great and doctor's have been helpful. They keep you updated if any of the doctor's are running late and send you a text message to remind you of your appointment.

Dr S Y Ganesaratnam - Wide Way Medical Centre

15 Wide Way, Mitcham CR4 1BP, UK – 020 8623 1300

Administration staffs are excellent!! Doctors and nursing staffs do their best. Keep up the good job ladies at the front desk and keep up the good work.

Great surgery the doctors are all very good and it doesn’t matter who you see. Also a great bonus is that the receptionist and admin staff are friendly and very helpful.

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

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.

BMI Shirley Oaks Hospital

Poppy Ln, Shirley Oaks Village, Croydon CR9 8AB, UK – 020 8655 5500

My experience at Shirley Oaks was great. I was an NHS patient having a left inguinal hernia repair and after reading the reviews online I was apprehensive at the thought of attending this hospital. The staff i encountered were extremely helpful. The receptionist, nurses, cafe staff and the surgeons. All very professional. When I had my consultation, it was very fast and over with within 5 minutes. I felt that wasn't enough time to get my head around things and ask the Dr questions, However, he was amazing and has done a great job. Thank you. I would recommend this hospital as I have experienced nothing but care, attentiveness and a willingness to be helped by the staff here. One again, thank you.

Good facilities, food and waiting time for treatment via private healthcare. Day nurses were however disappointing. One nurse was especially rude whenever asked questions and rarely checked-in to ask if the patient was ok after undergoing a major surgery. The consultant did a good job but only provided an explanation/summary of quite a major operation after being promoted. On that basis, I would only recommend this hospital as a lower-mid tier private health care option.

Local hospitals - community hospitals and hospitals with A&E departments for CR7 6AZ.

The new NHS website below is very well worth a look. Hospitals are not only listed but evaluated. I certainly know which ones I would go to! At the very least you will know what questions to ask if you are sent to one which has not entered its data. Good luck!

Premier Trading GB Ltd.

797 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 6AW, UK – 07785 268362

I am the manager of this company and we are experiencing some issues with fraudsters using our company name to make offers of products to potential customers. We would like to make everyone aware that we do not post any entries on any trade websites like Alibaba or India Mart etc. So, if you see an advert on these or similar websites then do not exchange communication with them and most of all do not make any payments to them. These fraudsters use our company name but their own bank accounts to receive payments and disappear after receiving your funds. We have had a number of phone calls around the world regarding this. So, please beware. Thank you.

777 Group. UK Demolition Contractors.

158 Beddington Ln, Croydon CR0 4TE, UK – 020 8689 6861

Very good and reliable skip hire service. Good communication and nothing is too much hassle for them.

Managed to hire a skip to clear out furniture. Skip delivered on time and removed promptly. It would be good if the skips had covers for overnight, as people tend to dump their stuff in your skips, this is annoying and costs money due to space consumption. Had it delivered in the south London area. Price was reasonable.

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 Thornton Heath

Kalpa

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

Very good an attentive table service. A wide range of menu and very tasty food on arrival. I will return and work through the menu on future visits.

Excellent food. Today I ate marsala dosa which came with 5 small portions of coconut Chutney riata vegetable soup, the best I have tasted for a while. Aubergine curry and a dal curry all delicious.

Pizza Hut Restaurants

59/61 N End, Croydon CR0 1TG, UK – 020 8680 1086

It's was nice in there. As it's half term, it was busy but yet the waiting staff still had time to help us and was pleasant. I'll be going back

Not a massive pizza fan like the teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the pasta has went done hill but salad cart is fresh

Salve Italian Restaurant

1 Lansdowne Rd, Croydon CR9 2BN, UK – 07741 091924

Great Italian food. The portions are quite filling (at least for the items that my friends and I had). The mozzarella pizza bread is absolutely tantalizing. I highly recommend it. But with the fairly large portion size, sharing this starter with a friend is probably be a good idea. You may even want to split your main dish if you aren't a big eater. The service was pretty good, mind you The restaurant was empty except for my friends and I. The staff were very polite and helpful. The food prices were quite reasonable for.the amount of food that is served. To sum it all up, if you are in or near Croydon and are looking for some good Italian food, try Salve Italian Restaurant. It will be worth your while.

Wow what a great place. Really great food. Wonderful staff. Had a brilliant night. We will return. Thank you Andre for looking after us. You are a wonderful host.
