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.

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.

MK Vasant MBE and Dental Associates

Went on Sunday for a 10.15 appointment, arrived early at 10 , had a difficult tooth pulled and had left at 10.17 , really impressed, dentist was called John , I was there as my dentist couldn’t pull my tooth at my usual place and I got referred, A plus

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

Half Moon Dental Centre

1-3 Half Moon Ln, Herne Hill, London SE24 9JU, UK – 020 7733 0011

Dr. Sharma is lovely. I always feel looked after and he always remembers me (and my quirks) whenever I visit! In fact visiting him is a relaxing experience as I know he will do his best to put me at ease before any work is done. He explains the procedures and warns me in advance so I know what to expect: there are never any scary surprises. The reception team too are great: they seem to remember me whenever I pop in! The only thing I would say is that they are always busy - so it is rare to get a quick / same day appointment (unless they have a cancellation). So plan ahead!

The service was very good. Friendly staff. Dentist with a good bedside manner. Didn't have to wait for appointment. And even though my appointment was originally scheduled a month down the line, they managed to find me an opening more quickly when someone cancelled, which I really appreciated. The only thing I would say is that they are a busy practice, and being a private practice, services are quite expensive.

306 Medical Centre

306 Lordship Ln, London SE22 8LY, UK – 020 8693 4704

The reception Team are really helpful. And the Dr's go above and beyond. I was worried about moving from an old practice. But it worked out better for me as there is a lot more help and support. The open hours are great too for those of us who work a little later in the evenings.

I've moved around London a lot over the past 10 years and this surgery has given me the best service by far. I've seen both doctors - both are friendly, approachable, caring and knowledgeable.

Robin Hood Surgery

94 Croydon Rd, London SE20 7AB, UK – 020 8778 8651

Always very busy but provides a good care

Very nice! Receptionist are really friendly, helpful and caring. I can get an appointment within a few days. The atmosphere is great, quiet music playing in the waiting room with a screen to call the next patient. Lots of up to date magazine to read and the doctors are very helpful and skilled. Definitely would recommend this surgery to everyone.

Paxton Green Group Practice

1 Alleyn Park, London SE21 8AU, UK – 020 8670 6878

Really nice stuff. You can expect some delays time to time, but overall, I had the best experience here compared to other GPs.

I have been with the practice for nearly 13 years and l'm luckily never that ill. However, we all need doctors and on the whole i have always been happy bar one incident with a rude nurse. I consider the walk in system in the morning to work well _ if a little cumbersome _ but considering how stretched the NHS is I can't think of a better way. I have met with several kind, considerate professional doctors here and seriously don't understand the lack of positive reviews for this surgery. In fact, I find rude patients to be the most negative thing about the surgery. Keep up the good work.

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.

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.

The Clink Brixton

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

Had an amazing time at The Clink Brixton! It was a surprise belated birthday present and I didn’t know where we were going. The food was amazing, service/staff were really attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend it!

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.

Bar 61 Restaurant

61A Streatham Hill, London SW2 4TX, UK – 020 8671 0444

Great tapas here. Generous portions so only 2 to 3 maximum dishes per person required and sharing tapas dishes great fun. Service very friendly and informal. Also has a decent wine list. Very popular locally.

This was our first time coming to Bar 61 and we will definitely be coming back. We decided on a selection of tapas dishes which were all delicious, compliments to the chef! The food wasn't the only wonderful part of the experience though; the waiters were all super friendly and warm and gave us free olives to start and fruit and liqueur for afters which was a fabulous touch. We really did feel like we were on holiday in Spain. I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone!

Enjoyable with friends and people who live in the area.


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.

My first and favorite school. Especially loved the caretaker and his wife who lived there.

This school is great and my son loves it

Judith Kerr Primary School

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!

Kingswood Primary School Upper Site

188 Gipsy Rd, West Norwood, London SE27 9RD, UK – 020 8670 3576

Outstanding school of diversity and great teachers!! My children have attended this school before and during the time it became part of the gypsyhill federation. I've watched kingswood grow from strength to strength.

My daughter attends this school, she is currently in year 6. I chose to take her to a school that would help her succeed well. My daughter went to learn, she has never had a problem with the rules and regulations. If a parent does not want their child to go to a school with rules then i suggest you look somewhere else, I am sure there are plenty of "adequate" schools around.

Oakfield Preparatory School

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.
