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.

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.

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.

Dunno why there are so many negative reviews. Had a brilliant experience today. Amazing welcome by the reception and pleasant team including Dr J Gill and the dental assistants. The only dentist in the area to take NHS patients without any problems. Set myself up for a bad experience and was blown away. Would recommend as others in the area showed so much attitude!!! Great advice given and even offered prescritpions and a follow up in 5 months

Dr N K Lodhi - Queens Road Medical Centre

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

Called the surgery and got an appointment for the same day and was seen on time. Dr Lodhi was extremely helpful!

Dr S Phillips

266 Lea Bridge Rd, London E10 7LD, UK – 020 8539 1221

Been with this surgery 30 yrs plus. Cannot thank them enough for the care of my health. Their prompt action has saved my sight, & they have helped me in so many ways to avoid serious physical and psychological problems. Cannot understand the low reviews - I've been in the surgery & in recent years heard people come in from the street & rudely demand appointments! I know that all GP surgeries are under extreme pressure to cope with so many new arrivals and the govt funding cuts, so try & be understanding to the staff as much as possible. I know, because my oldest friend is a GP receptionist (in another London surgery) and I hear how she gets spoken to. This is the best surgery for miles, and if you are seriously ill you will be seen asap if you follow their rules.

The Manor Practice

454 Lea Bridge Rd, London E10 7DY, UK – 020 8539 8950

I took my mom for her appointment. It took her 5 weeks to get an appointment to see a doctor, complete disregards for patients urgency. The surgery itself is very dated and definitely needs a renovation. It's also not wheelchair friendly as there steps to climb inside, which I don't find usual for an NHS surgery. I would have given it 0 stars if it was'nt for the excellent service provided by Dr Asubiaro. He was really understanding and he listens to your problems thoroughly before advising on the best course of action.

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.

Lovely little church hall used for many groups including tumble tots.

Find Recycling Centres

South Access Road Household Waste and Recycling Centre

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

Well organized and helpful, unlike most recycling centres

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.

LondonEnergy Ltd

EcoPark, Advent Way, London N18 3AG, UK – 020 8803 1322

Fantastic facility - with too much to discover, see and learn. It's very nice to see that a company actually exists that avoids sending waste to landfills and recycle it + convert to energy. One thing to watch out for though - speed cameras (speed limit is 15).

Incredible company that does amazing things with waste.

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

Zizzi South Woodford

198 George Ln, London E18 2QL, UK – 020 3105 3752

Awesome food and great service. Children love coming here. They love watching the chef preparing the food. The staff here are really friendly and so happy to ensure you all have a great meal.

What's not to like about this place? Plenty to choose from on the menu although I would like more fish options and sharing platters are pretty small. There is always a good atmosphere , staff are attentive but not overbearing. It is a place where you know you will have a comfortable experience.

Krantas Restaurant

28 High St, Walthamstow, London E17 7LD, UK – 07971 435164

Portions are big but also prices. What makes it shine is taste and balance in it. Really good east European food, same style restaurant like in those countries. What first emerged in my head was if they have some profit, because if you give a try you will stuff yourself and I mean in good way. In London is this in many restaurants for same prices impossible.

Really special place, lithuanian food, beer, drinks in general. Big portions compared to a cheap price. Can do private events in there, nice music, the whole interior design is lovely. Close to all the shops and shopping centre, disable access, however there's no parking right next to the restaurant. There's a road accross ( permit holders) or there's a chargeable parking few minutes walk. Overally extremely happy and would definitely recommend going there!

Wildwood

88-90 High Rd, London E18 2NA, UK – 020 8989 4924

The decor was pleasant, as was the atmosphere. Our waitress was very professional and friendly. The food was tasty. I had the spaghetti bolognese which wasnt presented in the traditional way. It appeared to be a lighter version - the sauce was not a rich ragu but still tasted nice enough. The pasta was well-cooked. My dining partner reported the ribs were beautifully done. I’d visit again.

Very tasty Peri Peri chicken dish. ...came on time and served by a lovely lady who was polite and charming!

i love gorge mitchell but not in that school😭😭 i am in lammas i hate that school i am sooooo sad

Good school. Great staff. Sadly let down by government cut backs abd staff shortages and the recent influx of eastern European pupils and refugee status pupils. But sch has been rebuilt and refurbed. So looks amazing and hopefully will give staff and moral a lift. And help improve the prospects for sch and pupils. Have been for a your of the new school. And was very impressed. Bigger classroom. Really big sports hall. All equipment is brand new. Plus all new state of the art computer rooms and pc's in the classrooms. So should help improve the standards and results of the pupils. Let's hope the kids appreciate the investment that's been made on their behalf.
