TSB Bank

Great local branch a little small but compensated by the fact that the staff are very helpful and friendly. It does get busy during lunch times, best times are school times or book an appointment. Only problem is parking.

The Co-operative Bank - Leicester

Dental Surgeries

Gipsy Lane Dental Practice

47 Gipsy Ln, Leicester LE4 6RJ, UK – 0116 268 1444

I've attended Gipsy Lane dental practice for many years and have been happy here. The dentist and staff have always helped me when I needed an appointment and have always seen me when I've had tooth ache. I have recommended them to many of my family and friends. Thank you to all the staff

Have been going for many years - first class service from front desk to treatment.

The Dental Suite

7-9 Rutland St, Leicester LE1 1RB, UK – 0116 255 4373

The staff here were all incredibly warm and professional. The atmosphere here is brilliant, and my treatment (6 month smile) only took 3 and a half months. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. You're made to feel incredibly welcome and are very well taken care of.

I just want to say I am extremely happy with the way I have been dealt with by your company. For obvious reasons it was difficult for me to make the first appointment, however all of your staff have been absolutely lovely since I first walked through the door. Before I started this. I was worried about being judged, made to feel dirty etc and am genuinely surprised at how well I have been treated. This morning was the first time I have had any "real work" done, up to now its been photos, x-rays and planning. The two girls who looked after me today were genuinely brilliant. I walked in terrified, and left looking forward to getting on with the rest of it. Maybe dentistry has changed in the last 22 years since I last visited a dentist or maybe, by luck or judgement I picked a good one. Either way, keep it up and thank you.

44 Dental Care

44 Fosse Rd N, Leicester LE3 5EQ, UK – 0116 251 9647

Excellent and friendly service. I have been a patient of Mr Hathiari's for some time now and he is brilliant . Always puts me at ease and explains everything. I recently had to have a dental implant so I saw JJ - the man is a genius! A beautiful piece of work, I love my new "tooth" and he made it seem so effortless which clearly it is not - a sign of a true professional. I am very pleased with 44 and would recommend them to anyone.

This is a great place. Lovely staff. I am very pleased.

JDRM Dental Care (Leicester)

10 Nelson St, Leicester LE1 7BA, UK – 0116 296 1473

Having called a number of dentists around Leicester for an emergency appointment, nobody was able to offer me an appointment for almost two weeks. I called JDRM and they got me an appointment the same day! The reception team were very friendly on the phone and gave me lots of advice before I came to my appointment. I did have to wait ten minutes past my appointment time, but as they got me in on the same day I really didn't mind! The dentist took an x-ray and gave me lots of information about my emergency, and was very polite and informative throughout. Once my appointment was over, the reception team booked my next appointment, and even guided me to the nearest pharmacy to claim my prescription. Overall really impressed with the service here.

I had to visit an emergency dentist. Having a bad experience at a previous dentist I was petrified. Dan and kirsty put me right at ease. Also ended up having my wisdom tooth taken out under local that day. Dan made sure I was comfortable through and was very reassuring. I am now registered with Dan as my permanent dentist. Great work

He sent my prescription straight to the pharmacy for me to collect that evening. Such a brilliant way of working, particularly for people like me that work all day. Definitely the way forward!

Leicester Royal Infirmary

Infirmary Square, Leicester LE1 5WW, UK – 0300 303 1573

We have had the most excellent service from all the staff. From the moment we entered the accident and emergency reception the whole team has been outstanding. surgery was the only option this happened at 01:30. They worked nonstop to ascertain the cause of the problem. And we have been treated extremely well by all concerned. Especially in ICU and ward 22. Some of the staff were at the end of a 12hr shift. But they were still working flat out. We are both very grateful for all there help and dedication

The nurses that I had we really kind and caring. I’m having surgery in September and they were able to make me not worry about it. I recommend going here

Gypsum Close Recycling Centre

I come here regularly and think it's a good set up catering for just about everything that needs recycling. It's well designed and has a good area to park up and empty out your vehicle. The staff are helpful and friendly and you can pick up your recycling bags at the same time!

Good facilities with long openening hours. Unfortunatley I must have gone on a day when the staff were having a bad day as one in particular was less than helpful, with a bad attitude to go with it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Leicester

Santhi Restaurant

124 Granby St, Leicester LE1 1DL, UK – 0116 255 5511

Found this restaurant on google very close to the hotel. It had good reviews and we were able to book a table online. It was a Sunday night so not sure it would have been a problem to just walk in. You could easily walk past this as the frontage is not huge and you access the restaurant down some steep stairs so hold on. Pleasantly greeted as we walked through the door, the restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. The food was nice and cooked very timely. The menu was south Indian which meant some of the popular sides weren't on the menu but I enjoyed the meal nevertheless.

Was a decent place to eat. Big menu with a lot of variety. Worth trying. Heard the woman brag their chilli paneer is the best in town but didn't get a chance to see if that's true.

Bill's Leicester Restaurant

10 Shires Lane, Leicester LE1 4AN, UK – 0116 251 1258

If I'm going out for breakfast/brunch the only place I will go is Bills. Never ever been disappointed. Nice and chilled atmosphere with very polite and happy staff. A wide variety of meals to accommodate everyone's taste and cooked on point. Good price and quick service. Visited today with my daughter who loves it too. Thanks to Ryan today for making us feel very welcome as usual and accommodating. Always service with a smile which is a rarity nowadays. Thumbs up to him!

Very bland food. The service was very good, just nothing else was. A bit of a shame really, I wouldn't go back

Chettinad Restaurant

146C London Rd, Leicester LE2 1ED, UK – 0116 319 2112

Friendly & fantastic food. I ordered the thali (mixed plate) to try different things & had enough to take home for dinner the next night. Well worth the price!

It was a great experience in Chettinad restaurant. The waiters are very friendly and the food is really awesome. I tried lamb madras and parata which is really fresh and delicious.i would suggest to try this one.

Nursery Rhymes - Leicester

13 Knighton Grange Rd, Leicester LE2 2LF, UK – 0116 270 2533

I cannot recommend Nursery Rhymes enough. We knew this was the nursery for us the minute we stepped through the door and we weren’t disappointed upon our daughter starting. In fact, we have been blown away by the care and support given to her. The staff in the baby room are fantastic and take excellent care of our daughter. She settled in super quick, with little fuss which is a testament to the staff in the baby room. The staff are extremely helpful and will always try to allay any concerns we might have. We also love love love the online parent portal which keeps up updated throughout the day. Thank you for taking such good care of our precious little person.

When I first visited Nursery Rhymes, I knew straight away this was the nursery for my daughter. I had visited a couple of other nurseries beforehand but didn’t get the warm and caring vibe as I did at Rhymes. The staff have been there since the nursery opened which I feel is a true testament in the caring and nurturing environment it is. My daughter started Jan 2016 in the baby room. The staff helped her settle in really well and aided with her child development, such as taking her on bus journeys to the park and developing her creative skills. She is currently in the toddler room where she gets to socialise and play with some great adults and kids. Great place to start your child’s education, highly recommend it.

Evington Valley Primary School

Good

Abbey Primary Community School

109 Ross Walk, Leicester LE4 5HH, UK – 0116 266 1809

I would like to give rating 3 to this school because staff Is not smily and friendly especially gujrati teachers with the parents. Most importantly, I always notice when I drop and pick my child from school ....teacher never ever make sure if child has entered the class or teacher has handover the child to the parents at pick up time. Make a rule for parents to stand in queue then everyone will follow. Secondly, they open the gate at pick up time at exact 330 pm which should open before 10 min, that can help parent to see what activity is going on in the class. Third point , school timing is really very very long. We most parent want it must to be 850-3:00pm or 830am to 230. And on every Friday which seems a cool and relax day , must got off at 1 pm ( 850am -1 pm). So after getting a break of getting fresh at home , children can participate in activities in the school which play after school. Especially FSY -1/2 ( reception class) to year 3 timings must be less. Thanks

Good I love the shcool the teachers are very freindy
