Excellent service, staff very helpful and friendly.

Great local branch always open when I need it and there very friendly too

TSB Bank

163 St John's Rd, Edinburgh EH12 7SD, UK – 0131 517 9995

It’s almost impossible to speak to someone in TSB branches as they usually don’t pick up the phone. It’s ok when you go into the branch but not everything can be sorted without making an appointment first so it’s a vicious circle. The only alternative is to schedule via their HQ call centre.

I find the staff pleasant, helpful,and diligent,hopefully it's not the next in line for the chop!(Beware the creepy traffic warden) - - - - - 168

Dental Surgeries

Battison Dental Care

26-28 Main St, Edinburgh EH4 5BY, UK – 0131 336 3747

Our family has been attending Battison Dental Care for just over four years now and we've never had such a great dentist. Nicola and her team are excellent at explaining treatments and they are particularly sensitive to patients with various anxieties. Their friendly approach puts them at ease before and during treatment. I would recommend this dentist to anyone.

Excellent and friendly staff that put you at ease and more than happy to accommodate the odd emergency Cannt rate Nicola and her team high enough all treatments are well explained and options offered

Slateford Dental Care

47-51 Slateford Rd, Edinburgh EH11 1PR, UK – 0131 337 2689

Staff is great and in case of an emergency, they will always try to get you a quick appointment. Recommended.

The quality of care offered by Dawn, Hetta and the team at this dental practice is excellent. I feel absolutely confident in the recommended treatments and procedures, and every effort is made to put the patient at their ease. Reception staff are friendly and professional. Alison the hygienist also first class. Highly recommend!

EH Dental Care

2 Roseburn Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 6AW, UK – 0131 313 3079

I never thought I'd be at a point in my life where I would rave about a dentist, yet here we are. I walked into this surgery with a mess of a mouth after years of letting dodgy dentists ruin my teeth and a perpetual fear of letting anyone near my gob. It was the best thing I did. After a whole program of work, my mouth is now getting back to being healthy and I honestly can't thank them enough. Orla & Hayley are a solid team who made me feel insanely comfortable from the get go and constantly watched out in case I started to slip into my old 'get away from me' ways. In the end, and as much as I enjoyed spending time with you guys, I'm now very glad I only need to see you every 6 months 💜

Having avoided the dentist for years and not looking after my teeth, I finally plucked up the courage to go. This week I have had 2 appointments to get work done and will be going back for 2 more appointments in the next few weeks. For me I wouldn't normally go back to the dentist. However Melissa has been fantastic. My first appointment I was crying and shaking so much but by the 2nd appointment I wasn't as bad. Melissa and all the staff put me at ease and allowed me to put my earphones in and listen to music. This helped alot. My only regret is I wished I had went sooner. I will never enjoy going to the dentist but Melissa and her team have made it easier for me to go and to keep to my appointments. So a big thank you to everyone at EH dental

Ladywell Medical Centre West

10 Ladywell Rd, Edinburgh EH12 7TB, UK – 0131 334 3602

Some of the best Doctors in town; some of the worst receptionists as well

Blackhall Medical Centre

51 Hillhouse Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3TH, UK – 0131 332 7696

I have been with this practice since Jimmy Manson etc ( about 50 years) and have found all the staff very courteous and civil. The doctors are absolutely great and not many practices will give you an emergency appointment as quick as this one. Carry on with the good work!!!

Dr M Cowell

Wester Hailes Health Centre, 7 Murrayburn Gate, Edinburgh EH14 2SS, UK – 0131 537 7070

This is an outstanding medical practice I’ve been taken care of and have had some really difficult times health ways I’d like to say that Dr M Crowell and Dr P Cairns are both caring and have a great understanding of local communities and the staff are so professional and respectful I’m going to miss you all Loads and again THANK YOU SO MUCH huge hugs from me xx

Ferryfield House

100 Pilton Dr, Edinburgh EH5 2HF, UK – 0131 537 6246

Great care on the rowan ward.......great staff, good food, and a very helpful ambiance. This was far superior to our 5k a month private nursing home...... and it was "free"!! My mum liked it there.

What an amazing place. The fabric of the building is a little tired but this can be excused and is more than compensated for by the wonderful staff who work there. They looked after my mum brilliantly with a lot of little touches that made my mums final few weeks very comfortable. From Mary who brought mum in a metro to read, ( just because she saw one), to the catering and cleaning staff who always had a smile and a few stories to share every single person went the extra mile. The professional care my mum received was just excellent I couldn't have asked for more. As well as making my mum comfortable Leanne and Shona took time out to make sure I was coping and offered friendly advice and a shoulder to cry on when I needed it. I will always remember Ferryfield House fondly and my advice to the team there is keep doing what you are doing it makes a huge difference.

Western General Hospital

Crewe Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 2XU, UK – 0131 537 1000

Waited 10 months to be seen by a specialist, in 3 minutes he told me that achilles tendon inflammation is not treatable and sent me on my way. Why could they not have told me this 10 months ago over the phone? Waited 7 months to see a hearing specialist who told me tinnitus can't be treated and to try relax, and sent home within 5 minutes. Again, could they not have told me over the phone? Them specialists have a real easy well paid job.

My mum spent her last few days here what wonderful Doctors and Nurses they have here Best care in the World I can't praise them highly enough. Today i was in for a Ct scan it took them 19minutes from walking in the door to leaving thats Amazing😁

In Edinburgh? The place to go 100%. As an Indian, I've had numerous opportunities to have Indian beers, and the bartender suggested the King Version of Cobra beer. Dear goodness, worth every penny. The food was amazing, great company and the bar is straight amazing. See the first two lines of my review? Go here if you want a good meal

U will not miss North Indian food especially Amritsari chicken and Chapati were brilliant!


23 Glasgow Rd, Edinburgh EH12 8HW, UK – 0131 334 2300

Used to love this place. Used to be great, now it needs an overhaul. The two waiters were not on it. Difficult to get there attention and then when we did, one seemed like it was an issue that we had called him over. Starter was good but basic, mains were very nice. Pudding was a disaster. Order panacotta, got served a creme caramel out a pot.....woth synthetic raspberry sauce... No joke . I ate it and didn't say a thing. Well next time I am in the area I may go in again but I hope they have changed.

Been most European and Asian countries , been thousands different cafes,hotels,restaurants but never like Fabio’s. the best 7 star.food , staffs,and specially the best price.

I moved from Erskine Stewart's Melville School in P7 across to St. George's. The experience I had at this school was amazing. I loved coming to this school! The classes are a lot smaller this means that you get more attention from the teachers. All the teachers are so dedicated and passionate about their job and their subjects this in return made us want to learn more and do well in our exams. The EDUCATION, the SUPPORT, and the OPPORTUNITIES at this school are EXCELLENT.

Great school, good education. The food is great, the only problem was that you had to pay for all of the uniform.
