Lloyds Bank

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

"Really helpfull staff "Nice and helpful staff."

This branch has definitely been improving over the 13 years I have lived in Walthamstow Central. Vince Tagliarini, Charell Medley, Andy Mark Russell (Mortgages) Galia Piskova (since left), and Nahid Iqbal (Business Banking, since left) have all given me very good service over the years. The branch was renovated a couple of years ago and now looks fresher. I have several personal accounts, loans and cards with Lloyds Bank. I used to do my business banking exclusively with HSBC, tho have since moved most of it to Lloyds Walthamstow. I gave the same feedback in branch in HSBC Walthamstow FIVE times to various people over the last 4 years regarding their automatic deposit facilities and STILL nothing has been done to date: 1. their ONLY cash deposit machine rejects too many notes, and 2. the card on the ATM showing which way to insert your card is still upside down. In contrast Lloyds Walthamstow has TWO automatic deposit machines and is much less problematic re: rejecting legal bank notes.

Local Chambers of Commerce for E17 with contact details and location maps. 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.

This is a fun place for kids, but I feel like it needs some more colour. But generally a cool place to play in.

Great park with good facilities including toilets. Playground is large, well equipped and kept spotlessly clean. "Moat" is lovely for duck feeding and there is food available in the park cafe.

Dental Surgeries

Abbey Dental Walthamstow

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

Great service from everybody very helpful and my dentist Maryam B was very Professional and compassionate. Thank you

Went along as I wasn't happy with previous dentist who was insisting I had treatment privately. Advised dentist at Abbey that I wanted tooth extracted as I'd been told there was a crack in it and after a similar problem with another tooth I didn't fancy going through the work if it was only going to be for a few months. Was told there was no crack and given the option of extraction or having a metal inlay, as it was a molar I opted to try and keep the tooth. Once work started it was discovered I did indeed have a crack and an inlay was out of the running. After a few more sessions for root canal treatment I finally had a crown fitted, on the NHS. Other than not spotting the crack that the previous dentist had seen I can't fault the treatment I received. I was particularly impressed that I wasn't pushed down the private route and as much work as could be done was carried out under the NHS and each step was explained prior to work being done. Reception staff are also impressive, responding efficiently and quickly when I managed to lose a piece of tooth whilst eating some popcorn.

Very professional caring dentists. Sometimes you have to wait but its well worth it.

The Firs

26 Stephenson Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 7JT, UK – 020 8223 9840

I've got nothing but positives to say about this surgery. I was dreading the first time i had to use the surgery because of the terrible reviews. The staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have known - reception and doctors- . I got an emergency appointment straight away, and the GP even rung me yesterday to see if I was ok off her own back. She was caring and compassionate and very knowledgeable.

Very helpful staff and very responsive.

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 and my two brothers were born there and it was a wonderful maternity hospital in its day

Whipps Cross University Hospital

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

Recently went to A&E for non-urgent foot infection and as expected it was busy and i had to wait an hour for triage then 2 hours for cleaning of wound and assessment. I was then sent for blood tests and an x ray and finally saw a great specialist all within fairly short time frame. He sent me home with the correct drugs which have since been effective. Which was good. Regarding some of the negative reviews here what i would say is that when you go for any medical care you need to have your wits about you and bring your sense of humour. ask questions write down the answers and push hard for what you want! The nurses are not perfect and the level of service is variable. If you can't do this then have somebody with you who can. Only real complaint is that the seats are rock hard and certainly not suitable to be sat in for long periods of time! I have sciatica and that hurt more than my infected foot!

Visited A&E and stayed there for a several days in the beginning of November 2016. Very helpful and friendly staff. Helped me a lot and got me back on track.I would say the food was lovely - very nice meals. I can see that there are quite mixed reviews of this hospital - I don't know, may be I got lucky but the staff who met was very good and I don't have any complains. Thank you, guys and girls for fixing me up. Kalin

Divers Emergency Service - UK

Whipps Cross University Hospital, Bridge Rd, Leytonstone, London E11 1RG, UK – 07999 292999

I was referred to the Divers Emergency Service after returning from holiday with decompression sickness. A team of staff were called out on Friday afternoon and were fully prepared to treat me in the hyperbaric chamber for 7 hours, then 2 hours on consecutive days for 3 days. From the moment I arrived, they made me comfortable and monitored my treatment. The doctors and staff are very dedicated, thorough and friendly. The emergency staff were all divers so I trust their knowledge and experience. They gave me a full medical and follow up appointment with ECG. I can't thank them enough, I know where to go if it ever happens again! They also run dry dive courses and treat a number of other medical ailments that require hyperbaric medicine.

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!

Service starts at 10.30am on a Sunday. More details can be made available on arrival.

surprisingly interesting church despite the architectural hotch potch. a good collection of monuments inside and out, some arts and crafts glass and someone's doing a brave job clearing the graves. could be open more, though they were friendly enough when I rang first.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Walthamstow

PEPE's Peri Peri

575 High Rd Leytonstone, London E11, UK – 020 8558 4389

Food was decent, but very salty. The manager / team leader was far from friendly. A bit pricey.

This place is a hit and miss. When they get acts together they do good spicy food and they service is spot on but beware the delivery driver is not an intellect and will get your order wrong or get lost and your food can arrive cold and your evening after a hard days graft can be a total mess up and wonder you even bothered placing an order.


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

Really tasty food I had a pizza and truffle chips! Was super good, not many bad points was mostly great. service was a bit slow on Sunday! Portion size of the dessert could have been better we had a sort of cheese cake!

Good starter and mains. Dessert a bit disappointing. Friendly and efficiency staff and service. Nice and warm retreat from the winter freeze. Decent setting. A bit pricey but made OK with vouchercloud offer.

Pizza Express
