Lloyds Bank

182 High St, Walthamstow, London E17 7JH, UK – 0345 300 0000

Niki and Emily are really helpful staff, who listen carefully (just as important as immediately 'doing' something). They are good at sorting out depressingly appalling errors made by various central customer services staff at Lloyds Bank. Also at dealing with people like me who are driven mad by this kind of carelessness or inaccuracy. They daily demonstrate why branch staff are crucial. Were it not for them I might well have moved all my accounts to another bank by now.

i have one comment to make about one particular member of staff. She was behind the enquiries desk and was chewing her gum in such a disgusting way . I think staff should be trained to be able to help the customers but also how to make themselves look professional. Its not all about make up and nice hair.


20-21 Electric Parade, George Lane, London E18 2LX, UK – 0345 740 4404

Nice staff. I had an interview with Mr. Anthony. Very polite and friendly person. Explained me everything and gave me all the details concerning opening and managing my personal account. At the end of the interview, I met the manager of that branch Ms. Natalia. She asked me about my experience with HSBC and about my last interview. Very efficient and professional manager!

Dental Surgeries

Abbey Dental Walthamstow

25 St James St, Walthamstow, London E17 7PJ, UK – 020 8521 2816

Both doctor and nurse as well as reception staff were warm, welcoming, efficient and competent at their jobs. They explained everything in a positive way and made me feel more confident about oral hygiene and dentist visits, which means something coming from someone who's had a fear of dentists for the majority of her life. Highly recommended.

Really prompt, and lots of care taken by dentist Mr Ho. Extremely happy with my experience here so far.

Hoe Street Dental Practice

337 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 9BD, UK – 020 8520 5289

Very professional Russian and Indian dentists. Friendly and lovely Bulgarian nurses. Me and my family we are patients few year.

Wanstead Dental

11 High St, London E11 2AA, UK – 020 8530 4230

From the moment I made a phone call to the surgery up until the moment I left after my treatment, I felt welcomed. The receptionist was very welcoming as were the other members of staff. I had a root canal treatment with rubi and she was absolutely brilliant! She made the whole process so easy and painless. I recommend this place to anyone looking for not only a dental practice but a professional one too! The staff are always happy and do everything to make you feel welcome. The banter between staff and their customers is priceless! You are well informed of the whole journey and never feel rushed. Wanstead dental clinic is truly amazing. Everything from their staff to their processes. I will be returning to this clinic for any further dental work and will also be telling friends and family to do the same!!

So happy she fix my tooth & now I no go Spain. Best dentist and she a not scary.

Dr N K Lodhi - Queens Road Medical Centre

48 Queens Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 8PX, UK – 020 8520 2625

Dr J Bailey

107 Shernhall St, Walthamstow, London E17 9HS, UK – 020 8520 5138

Amazingly friendly with the right level of professionalism. Aways putting the patient first, best GP practice that I have been under

Always have had a brilliant service here! Staff are always so happy to help and the Doctors are equally as great. One of the best surgeries around!

Dr I S Bhatnagar - Francis Road Medical Centre

94 Francis Rd, Leyton, London E10 6PP, UK – 020 8539 3131

Best in town. Always getting appointments very quick, not like other medical centres where you need to wait weeks to be seen. All doctors are proffesional, friendly and helpful. Thank you!!!

My experience meeting and being cared for by a Nurse named Izabela was fantastic. I do not have enough good words to describe this Nurse. She is a natural Nurse in every sense of the word, combined with her natural customer/patient service. She has so much empathy and professionalism which I have not seen in many practices. Being a new patient I have more confidence in the practice and will recommend it. once you are able to go past the receptionists, you will be fine. I thank Nurse Izabela and give her a 5 star rating any day. Just to add that my appointment was on the 24th of November 2016 by 10:15 am

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.

My wife has had both our children at Whipps and the staff were attentive, caring and always at hand. The birthing unit is a specialist place where everything is catered for. Thanks to all the amazing midwives and doctors who helped bring our children into the world

I have had my 3 children at Whipps and each time the care has been fantastic. Each time staff were excellent, professional, caring and positive. I am just home after quite a traumatic c section and I cannot sing the praises of the medical team in the operating theatre and all the midwives who provided after care they were all brilliant I am safe and recovering and baby is safe and vary happy. We can't thank the team enough. We MUST fight for our NHS and those who work tirelessly within it. Thank you Whipps for bringing my beautiful family safely into this world.

Wanstead Hospital

Makepeace Rd, London E11 1UU, UK – 020 8532 2711

Excellent new facilities. This is the 2nd time I’ve had blood taken here. 1st time I had to wait 2, yes that’s 2 minutes. This time it was fairly full and I waited 30 minutes. Very professional and a good advert for how it looks when the NHS gets it right. Well done.

My fiance had her ankle operation and then they send her for rehabilitation here. The staff was helpful and everything was perfectly fine now with her leg after just a few sessions of rehabilitation. We would like to tell a huge THANK YOU to all the staff.

Whipps Cross University Hospital

Whipps Cross Rd, Leytonstone, London E11 1NR, UK – 020 8539 5522

Unfortunately had to use children's A & E lately and staff etc were fantastic. Friends have also said the same when they have used this service. Took someone to adult a & e and again fantastic apart from long waiting time which was no refection on the brilliant staff that work extremely hard and were so friendly and helpful. Really appreciate having this hospital nearby. Thank you.

A George V (1917) rambling hospital though modernised. Respiratory Medicine is excellent and sent me for a lifesaving operation and have checkups every 6 months. On the other hand I was admitted to Urology, caught an infection there which caused serious complications which made me on antibiotics for 4 months, nasty nasty ward. Services like x-rays,scans,cardiac, nuclear medicine etc are excellent.

Find Recycling Centres

South Access Road Household Waste and Recycling Centre

42a S Access Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 8AX, UK – 020 8509 3664

A high class of waste, tempered by friendly assistant personnel. This one time I was there dropping off some hardcore and paving slabs when a guy pulled up in a car that was jam packed with DVDs, there were tears in all our eyes as we watched him unload them into the general waste skip.

This recycling centre is usually very clean and tidy. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Metal & Waste Recycling

Albert Works, Kenninghall Rd, London N18 2PD, UK – 020 8807 4268

V helpful. Does not collect under 2tonne.

Gateway Road Recycling Centre

Gateway Rd, London E10 5BY, UK

Friendly staff. Unfortunately no vans what so ever because the commercial company that runs the establishment has a commercial waste disposal site nearby. And they enforce this rule so that you have to go and spend money to dispose there. So when your girlfriend volunteers you to clear her mates two wardrobes that they dismantled but just left in the garden, and you take a trip down the local tip site to get rid of the waste, and despite the fact that you aren't breaking any rules or laws, and you pay your taxes, and that I'm not getting rid of waste resulting from a commercial enterprise, if you pull up in a van, it's a no from these guys, namely bywaters, the company that runs it. As an alternative I'd suggest the following; - get a girlfriend that has no friends - go in a car - move to the country. Things are different outside the city. Everything is less swallowed up by bureaucracy and greed.

Friendly staff, never had a problem. I understand their opening hours are limited but still lucky to have them there.

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 Walthamstow

Pizza Hut Restaurants

2, Ferry Island Retail Park, Station Rd, London N17 9FR, UK – 020 8808 2626

Located near the tube station, it is a very convenient place to go to. Staff are always helpful. The Pizza Hut is never busy which is why I go there so often. Pizza tastes the same as other branches. My main criticism is that the buffet is updated very slowly. There are only 2 vegetarian options so they should always be available! Nice atmosphere inside, I always have an enjoyable experience.

Big space, music a bit too loud, hard to make a phone call quietly. Service fast, workers kind. Convenient location near the tube and many other shops and office buildings. If has the classic offer plus a buffet.

Prezzo Woodford Green

8 Johnston Rd, Woodford, Woodford Green IG8 0XA, UK – 020 8505 2400

Leytonstone Community Pre-school

Lister Hall, Lister Rd, Leytonstone, London E11 3DS, UK – 020 8988 1019

Both my kids attended Green Man up to the point where they left to go to the local primary school and loved it. Great place, with friendly staff who clearly like kids - and like interacting with them. I particularly liked the fact that they didn't tie me into going every day and that the lunch-club gave me until 1:15pm. Their previous premises had a nice big garden. The current place doesn't have quite such a nice outdoor play-space, but they are clearly working hard to make it better.

A wonderful preschool. This is the first place I left my little boy other than with relatives and I was instantly sure that he would be happy there. The staff enjoy being with the children and my son loves it. The staff have taken a quite shy little boy and helped him to blossom into a confident, opinionated person. There are lots of different activities for the children to do every day and the parents are all very involved too which makes it feel friendly. You can choose how many days your child attends and so start them off slowly if you want to. I can only recommend it.

Bright Horizons

Billets Corner Nursery/Sainsbury's Low Hall Store, Walthamstow, London E4 8ST, UK – 020 8523 3823

Nice staff here

I have visited a lot of nurseries but was very disappointed until I came to Bright Horizons. After 5 minutes in I knew that was the one! With safe gardens for children, nice and clean interiors, very professional and caring staff, I was so happy and relieved that such place still exist! Best nursery ever!
