You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Lloyds Bank

942 Brighton Rd, Purley CR8 2LP, UK – 0345 300 0000

I visited this branch in 2015 for an appointment with mortgage advisor. Was professional and helpful experience.

3 parking spots right outside in red route parking bay 10-4. Don't park in red route loading bay on opposite side of road, going to the bank is not loading and there are parking cameras everywhere, otherwise next road along has free parking all the way along it but you must get a ticket. Not open at the weekends though, which is unforgivable for a bank. Staff are great.

Barclays Bank

Lovely and helpful staff, but the branch needs doing up and there was noone to serve customers with q&a's on the shop floor.

Good branch with nice staff. Closed on Wednesdays. Can be busy sometimes.

Dental Surgeries

Kenley Dental Practice

70A Godstone Rd, Kenley CR8 5AA, UK – 020 8668 2696

Dr Patel and his staff are amazing. The admin staff are very polite and caring. Dr Patel himself is very honest and takes time to explain exactly whats happening. Considering i have dental phobia like many i would strongly recommend this practice to anyone.

Karen has done a great deal of work on my teeth (bridges and fillings) over the past two years. I have been very satisfied with the standard of the care she has provided. She takes time to discuss and explain any treatment she is going to undertake and in addition has a most friendly and professional approach.

Crossways Dental Coulsdon

328 Coulsdon Rd, Coulsdon CR5 1EB, UK – 01737 551622

Shane was very calming and reassuring after I told him about a bad experience I had at another dentist. Shane sorted out the infection in my gum around my wisdom tooth with no problem. Would definitely reccomend . The receptionist is also really lovely and welcoming which makes a difference !

We had a really positive experience here when we brought our two young children for a check up. The dentist, Shane, was running to time and came out to greet us as this was the first time we had met him. He was polite, respectful and professional but he also had a calm and reassuring manner with the children. The check up went smoothly and without stress. Lucy on reception was cheerful and professional and checked us in and out efficiently and with a smile.

Taunton Lane Dental Practice

15 Taunton Ln, Coulsdon CR5 1SG, UK – 01737 554177

My front crown that was on a post came out and i was seen as an emergency patient at Taunton lane dental practise the same day, they were very efficient and helpful. I was very happy with my treatment.

I recently had top and bottom dentures made and fitted by Taunton Lane Dental Practice. After decades of putting up with ill fitting and painful dentures, I have at last got near perfect pain free, good fitting dentures. No adjustment was needed. The other work they have done for me has also been excellent.

Townhill Medical Practice

Guards Ave, Caterham CR3 5XL, UK – 01883 331900

I have complained about townhill in the past due to appointments etc but after today i take back every single word my son would probaly not be here today if it wasant for the doctors nurses and receptionist acting quickly when i rushed in the sugery after my son 8 month old son took badly to a reaction he was like a ballon they were all on him in seconds and dispite im not even a patient there anymore they done everything to see to him and i thank you all so much they acted quicker then the ambulance that arrived 20 miniutes late and by the time they got to the sugery townhill team had done it all my sons is my world and i cant thank you enough for your hard work and dedication to save my sons life today and i will never forget that thank you all so much again Huge regards to the team that helped my son Thanks again

Townhill is by far the best surgery I've been a patient at, it's my 6th. Every GP I've seen has taken time to listen and has been extremely thorough whilst showing care and understanding. The receptionists and nurses all through the years I've attended, have always been helpful and friendly and extremely professional. The pressures on the health system just keeps on increasing, but Townhill has always managed to maintain a high standard of care. Well done!

Excellent NHS hub and minor emergency unit. Very short waiting times compared with main A&E in Mayday Hospital. Staff very friendly, doctors very attentive and the care and advice received was amazing. Easy to park outside and locally and not expensive, which was a bonus.

I had a consultation and was informed of my opperation and it put my mind at rest

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Coulsdon

La Scarpetta

117 Brighton Rd, Coulsdon CR5 2NG, UK – 020 8668 7417

Dined here recently and it was a superb experience. Food was wonderful, not cheap but not over expensive for the really good quality meal with fantastic flavours. We especially loved the atmospheric lighting, just right, not too dark not too bright. Added to this, the fact that there was no loud music, so we were able to chat without difficulty was such a bonus in a restaurant these days. We will be visiting again and would thoroughly tell friends to go there.

Always a warm welcome when you go and eat at La Scarpetta. The owner was working in the kitchen on out last visit and the food was delicious as usual.

The Quintessential Restaurant

121 Brighton Rd, Coulsdon CR5 2NG, UK – 020 8763 0525

A lovely little restaurant that I'd never noticed before a Google search. The portions aren't particularly big but this was simple food done really well. I'm embarrassed to say I didn't catch her name but or waitress transformed a quote week night dinner into a wonderful experience. She was funny and attentive (we WERE the only people there but I get the sense that she would've been great anyway). I'll definitely go back

We first ate here when it was very newly opened, and we've been back repeatedly over the year since - including having a party for 25 people. The food and the service always exceed expectations, even when those expectations take the form of thinking for a week about how delicious the t-bone steak is going to be. A short, regularly-changing menu is all handled impeccably. The wine list is excellent. Special requirements are handled helpfully and without fuss. I really can't praise the place enough.

Pizza Express

Ground Block A Trinity Square, 127 Brighton Rd, Coulsdon CR5 2NJ, UK – 020 8660 1199

Always nice staff, regardless of food which is always consistent it's nice to have a family atmosphere in here. We've come back because it's friendly and the two course deals work on Fridays. Accommodating to give us a nice big table for our buggy.

Good food but window seats can be cold. Fast service when quiet. Need decaf tea on menu. I asked for it and waitress said they only do decaf coffee. I cannot stand coffee so I was out of luck as I wanted tea but not a caffeinated one at 9pm at night as I would be awake all night.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Oakwood School

Oakwood Independent School, 59 Godstone Rd, Purley CR8 2AN, UK – 020 8668 8080

Best primary school around. Looking back on my memories there I see how privileged I was as young lad to attend this school. In countless conversations with friends from secondary school we have compared our experiences and our memories of primary school and Oakwood, without exception, has always been the most desirable place for a child to grow up in the opinions of both parties. I can’t think of anything that a child would need, that isn’t available, either from the wonderful staff or from the school as a whole. This school, a home for the hearts of all pupils who have attended, offers all that a child, growing up in the modern world will need. The virtues that are taught and the character development that the pupils receive means that each and every one of them can grow into fine members of today’s society, and can change it for the better.

Oakwood School is a great place to learn and grow, I have so many fond memories of my time there. The teaching is fantastic and I really got the sense that staff took an interest and cared for me in a way that made me feel part of a community. It was also really good to have a priest celebrate mass regularly, hear confessions and give short sessions on Christian doctrine, all of which I really missed at secondary school! I made loads of friends there and genuinely believe that the ethos, virtues and lessons I learnt in Oakwood are things that I incorporate in my life now many years later. Great school, keep it up!
