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.


918 Brighton Rd, Purley CR8 2LN, UK – 0800 554 0628

The team always treat me well, recommend visiting at non-peak times (daytime) for shortest waiting times

Quite slow service but useful when necessary.

Barclays Bank Purley

953 Brighton Rd, Purley CR8 2YH, UK – 0345 734 5345

Run down branch, not sure if bank will update it or close it. Sophie was awesome at opening a bank account and knew everything. Friendly staff but like the Coulsdon branch, in need of a makeover.

Friendly staff, but as its a small branch can get very busy.

Coulsdon Dental Practice

149 Brighton Rd, Coulsdon CR5 2NH, UK – 020 8668 2607

We have just moved to this dentists on recommendation from a Mum at my girls school and were really impressed! As someone who has had a bit of a dentist phobia since I was younger after a bad experience I was keen for my girls not to feel the same and the dentist was great with them, very patient, friendly & made a real effort with them and put us all at ease! :-)

Very attentive practice! Booked in as soon as needed to be, dentist made me feel calm and welcome. Have recommended to family and friends!

Kenley Dental Practice

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

Friendly staff. Treatment options are well explained by dentists which is much appreciated. I used to be anxious at the dentist but no more!

My Son never liked going to the dentist until now put at ease right from the start will definitely going back for more treatment in the future.

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.

Dr F Shobowale - Woodcote Group Practice

140-142 Chipstead Valley Rd, Coulsdon CR5 3BB, UK – 020 8763 5620

These guys are fantastic. There are three Doctors in particular (all the guys) and they are so caring and incredibly thorough. It's such a shame that they don't have enough time to spend with their patients. If it wasn't for two Docs in particular, I would be dead. Three years ago, a certain hospital missed my heart attack and one of these guys checked my blood result (which the discharging hospital Doc didn't) and sent me straight back in. I had my 8 month old with me at the time and he kept me in his room until my partner and the Ambulance came. My 2 (fave) GPs have both called me many hours after the surgery had closed to see how I am because they were concerned. You cannot beat that. GPs work ridiculously hard with very little funds. Please understand this before complaining. There are very good Doctors out there but I think these guys are outstanding. Peace.

Many of the doctors are very good, Informative and helpful Reception not brilliant - seem disorganised

The Moorings Practice

2A Valley Rd, Kenley CR8 5DG, UK – 020 3417 7565

Registered today with massive skin reaction and got an appointment same day really great service.

I have complete confidence in my doctor, and I've known her for years. Sometimes appointments can take a while, but you can normally get an emergency appointment the same day.

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.

This is a hospital that has a walk-in service for local doctor’s surgeries for facilities such as blood tests & x-rays amongst others. The hospital is modern & clean & the staff are pleasant. A nice change from Maydie Hospital in Croydon.

Blood tests always quick. Had a really quick waiting time to see doc; thorough & polite. Very lucky to still have a free NHS ✌🏽

A fantastic, friendly service. Very happy with the move these guys done for me and I would highly recommend.

I contacted a few people and Derrick was the first person came back to me and gave me a quote. He was very polite and the price was very competitive. He and his colleague came round as scheduled and cleared inside of our old garden shed, shed itself and half broken fences. They didn't even have a break. They carried on working. Derrick even offered putting new fences up and again price was good so we decided to have a go. They are so polite and no chatting during working, they just get on with it. I'm so happy with them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anybody.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Croydon

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.

La Scarpetta

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

Always a real pleasure to spend a mealtime here, lunchtime or evening! Varied menu always consistent in flavour and presentation. Attentive polite friendly staff, working in a relaxed but busy atmosphere makes any meal a social activity.

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.

Pizza Express

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

Came here today with my dad and had an early evening meal. I had the new chicken pizza and my dad had the pesto chicken pasta. Both dishes were deliciously made. We were served by Ula and Demi who were both amazing. Both ladies were working really hard and it was the hottest day so far.

Lovely lunch with my mother and hubby. A great range of dishes, and pizza styles. Very flavoursome and reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning to the Coulsdon Branch as staff are really welcoming.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Oakwood School

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

Interesting to see reviews with no full names! When we moved from abroad last year, Oakwood was recommended by some friends. Our oldest kids in school just had the chance to be for few months before going to Secondary School, but the School offered them not only a solid academic program, but a nurturing environment that made the transition to a new country very pleasant. With one kid with special needs, the inclusion was total, he was made part of every activity and received a fair treatment. For the first time in his education, he felt a part of the group. Once, we had a bullying incident against our son, and the classroom teacher and the management dealt with it immediately and effectively, protecting not only our child but also taking care of setting the corrective measures with the other two kids. We still have one kid at Oakwood, and could not be happier with our choice. Our daughter is getting stronger in maths and Literature, but also growing in maturity. Following the recommendations of our friends was the best decision for our kids' education. Very grateful to the school.

I moved to this school having come from a completely different school in Oxford with an environment that was very typical of a primary school. I moved to Oakwood and remember to this day the friends I made on my first day, all of whom I am still very close friends with today, and this is just one of many things that made Oakwood special. The education is something unique, and one that cannot be taken for granted, with the staff putting in a lot of effort to tailor classes to the needs of children, no matter their level. The Christian formation received at this school is something I have taken with me all my life and has been the most beneficial thing I have gained from the school.This formation and spirit is practised by all the members of staff and reflects in their extraordinary work on the children that attend the school. The availability of a priest regularly and regular mass and confessions was a real gift. I feel very privileged to have been able to attend and wish the school all the best going forward!

Keston Primary School

1 Keston Ave, Coulsdon CR5 1HJ, UK – 01737 555103

This is a good primary school with good facilities and teaching staff.

Decent school that has a pool but for odd reasons requires payment for swimming lessons I would recommend coulsdon C of E for your chipd, but this comes next

Saint Nicholas School

Reedham Dr, Purley CR8 4DS, UK – 020 8660 4861

Lovely schoold parents and staff work together as a team to provide the best possible care for all involved. Children are happy and well cared and supervised for its a school full of great diversity and learning is provided at the best.

Ok School.But it is very crowded and the teachers do not really take care of the children who are in real need.Used to be a very good school but now the school has gone downhill. My son comes back with no school bag or no hat.I hope this school improves.Also, my son always comes back home terrified after the events that take place in the school.
