TSB Bank

11 Clerk St, Edinburgh EH8 9JH, UK – 0131 517 9983

Service is quite good. Staff are patient

I banked here in the 1970s; the manager was a criminal maniac who ought to have been in jail. Perhaps he is. I haven't seem him for some time.

TSB Bank

165 Lothian Rd, Edinburgh EH3 9AB, UK – 0131 517 9996

Had to cash in a cheque and it was all fine as you would expect. Very quiet on a lunch break on a Friday

Very kind employees

Bank of Scotland

300 Lawnmarket, Edinburgh EH1 2PH, UK – 0131 470 2007

I really recommend this branch. We opened a joint account at this branch and the staff was very helpful and friendly, we were attended by Duncan, we thought that maybe he was new in the branch, but he was really helpful and capable. We are really satisfied with the service and also with the account condition.

Handy for access to cash and the like

Dental Surgeries

Craigentinny Dental Care

57 Duddingston Crescent, Edinburgh EH15 3AY, UK – 0131 669 2114

Several months ago, I was referred to Craigentinny Dental Practice by my regular dentist for root canal treatment. I have a strong needle phobia and am a nervous dental patient, so this type of procedure would be almost impossible for my regular dentist (who is not a sedation specialist) to complete on me. From the moment I met Martin and his team, they put me at ease, and together we worked out a plan for the sedation and treatment that was safe, effective and minimised my anxieties. Martin talked me through a range of options, taking into consideration my specific needs (impact of sedation medications on breastfeeding, etc). On the day of the appointment, the team at Craigentinny were comforting, professional and efficient. My husband, who was accompanying me, was kept engaged and informed about the treatment and how to care for me afterward. My own experience of the treatment was limited to the initial sedation process (a drink-which dramatically reduced my nervous reaction to the needle), because (as hoped for) I felt no pain and have no memory of the actual procedure. After the procedure, the team at Craigentinny kept in touch to make sure the treatment was effective and my experience was good. I felt listened to and well cared for throughout the whole process. I cannot recommend Martin and his team highly enough, especially to patients with severe anxiety or phobias. The fact that I have no apprehension about returning for further treatment (this time for a cracked molar) says it all!

Actually 5 stars is not enough. Thanks to craigentinny dental care and special thanks to Miriam and all the team for the professional work done by them thanks for making me able to smile again !! My teeth was strongly stained with black tea/coffee/smoke. I never thought it would be white again until I visited the practice. I got my teeth cleaning and 2 fillings ( NO PAIN AT ALL) now I feel I have brand new teeth :) now I can smile with confidence.again thank you so much

Marchmont Dental Care

35 Warrender Park Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1HJ, UK – 0131 229 5542

Amazing service. Lovely staff. Beautiful space.

NHS and private dental care available. Friendly staff.

Vitality Dental Care

5/3, Bristo Square, Potterrow, Edinburgh EH8 9AL, UK – 0131 629 1120

I have a teeth removal and root treatment there.It totally alleviates my teeth problem and overcomes my fear against the dentist! I really recommend the dentist named Omar.He is very professional and friendly dentist.Even more,he treat my teeth very gently and minimize the degree of pain for me with his talented skill.I am very thankful for him! So don’t hesitates to check up in Dental care!

I visited Vitality Dental back in October for a check-up and clean up. I had neglected my dental health for almost 5 years! I didn't have any problems but as a smoker and coffee drinker my teeth were stained and had plaque. I had a deep cleaning with Alexandra Konstantinou in two sessions and I couldn't be happier with her service. I've experienced no irritation or pain at all and my smile was better and healthier than ever. I strongly recommend the practice, very friendly and helpful receptionists, and Alexandra Konstantinou.

Dentists

Bite Dentistry

30 Glen St, Edinburgh EH3 9JE, UK – 0131 228 3060

Yesterday I had a sinus lift and today I was at work having had no pain, no swelling or bruising. I really don't feel like I have had anything done at all!. I cannot thank Eimear enough for her professionalism, cheerfulness  and for making me feel so relaxed .  Thank you to the girls who assist her and at the reception too. The care before, during and after my treatment was excellent as always.

I have been with Bite Dentistry ever since they were still called 'Frederick Street' (2013) and before that "The Dental Clinic" (2007). They are private practice but do some NHS clients as well. Cathy, my original dentist is very professional and since retired. Helen Young is now my orthodontist. Twice a year I go for a checkup and twice for a hygenist. This permanent location is very nicely decorated and the waiting room is spacious and comfortable. Magazine and complimentary water. The machinery they use in the consult room / surgeries are top of the line. They take card when you need to pay, but you can also sign up for a 'program' of sessions (like a Dental Club Plan) - which gives you a discount when visiting and on treatments. I recommend them!

Parkside Dental Practice

1 Parkside Terrace, Edinburgh EH16 5BN, UK – 0131 667 0500

I have been to 4 Dentist in Edinburgh and 2 dentist in Glasgow. This dentist is by far the best. I got all my treatment done in a single day and the dentist took time to show me all the problems with my teeth by having me hold a mirror while pointing and explaining each problem. I even missed my first appointment and their was no £10 charge :) Location is excellent, reception is super friendly and im pleased with the work done on my teeth. I highly recommend this dental practise.

Great dental practice, highly recommend it. They care about the condition of your teeth and provide tailored advice. Good price and great customer service.

Craigmillar Dental Centre

198 Peffermill Rd, Edinburgh EH16 4AJ, UK – 0131 661 7525

10 mins waiting and here are my first impressions: everyone is really friendly, the practice is very clean! Keep up the good work! not seen a dentist the though....

Been using them since I was youngster. Always short problem out

Craigmillar Medical Group

106 Niddrie Mains Rd, Edinburgh EH16 4DT, UK – 0131 322 2111

Very good and helpful. Recently moved to another area and a different practice, but I now realise how good the surgery, staff and doctors are.

Liberton Medical Group

65 Liberton Gardens, Edinburgh EH16 6JT, UK – 0131 664 3050

Having only moved to Edinburgh recently we had to go through the process of being allocated a GP surgery. Although I'm incredibly lucky not to suffer from Ill health I've only had to use the surgery a couple of times and I can't fault the staff and nurses. I know it can be quite difficult to get a last minute appointment, but if you live nearby they will accept walk-ins from 8am and will try and allocate an appointment for that day - believe first appointments are from 08.40am.

Busy surgery but have always offered same day appointments. Also happy to phone me for review. Great online prescription order service.

Gracemount Medical Practice

24 Gracemount Dr, Edinburgh EH16 6RN, UK – 0131 664 2377

Don't listen to these bad reviews. Yesterday needed an urgent appointment, after 4 tries got through and had an appointment at nine. Needed a repeat last minute appointment today too and again got through after a few tries. Treatment from the GPs on both days was brilliant so we'll done and thank you. Only downside is finding a parking space as the car park is shared by a gym. You just need to be patient and you'll get one.

Pros: Staff are excellent and very friendly. I've never had an issue with them and always helpful. Cons: Appointment system isn't the finest. I'm informed that there are early appointments bookable in advance some days by some doctors from 7am. Aimed at people that work, but seem to get filled by older people that (I can't confirm) don't work. Must be the only doctors you can't book an appointment for more than 1 day in advance for everything else. So need to stand outside at 7.45am or get thumb and neck ache pressing redial by phone, to have to redial the next 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.

Royal Infirmary Edinburgh

51 Little France Cres, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, UK – 0131 536 1000

Have to praise the staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. From the moment mum was taken in on Monday, the care and attention she received was outstanding. Particularly the nurses of base 4 in the Acute Medical unit. Those girls were awesome. They made a difficult week much easier to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole family was looked after and mum got the best care possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are xx ❤

Visited a friend here today. Very easy to find. The car park is enourmas. Not sure about cost of parking since we were on motorbikes and they are free to park. Place was busy but we found the signage to find wards etc excellent. We did get lost but staff were very helpful and all do a fantastic job, both of looking after patients, and of keeping visitors right.

Congratulations to the staff who have taken the time to make a little garden area around their cabin. I dropped some rubbish off yesterday and it brightened a dull edinburgh evening to see the colourful display. Well done. Staff were pleasant and helpful as usual.

Staff are usually helpful, and it's well organized and signed. It's very convenient to drop lots of rubbish for recycling.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Howies Restaurant

10-14 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2HG, UK – 0131 225 1721

Nice restaurant in a pretty good location especially if you're into Harry potter and all that. Prices reasonable as well. Good quality food. Portions are decently sized however as a self confessed appetite monster, I could have done with a few more morsels of salmon than was served. Solid choice for a meal out

Situated on Victoria Street, Howies is a beautiful restaurant with an extensive Scottish menu. I went for the Cullen Skink (which I would absolutely recommend, it's delicious) and slow-cooked beef casserole. £80 for a 2-course meal for 2 inc wine isn't expensive either. I'd certainly add this to my list of restaurants to visit again.

Blonde Restaurant

71-75 St. Leonard's St, Edinburgh EH8 9QR, UK – 0131 668 2917

Went here for a Sunday evening meal as a family group of 4 on the strength of reviews, and we were not disappointed. The decor and lighting is pleasant and modern. We all chose from the bargain menu, the options were varied enough for all our tastes, the portions generous (or standard? Not small anyway) and the food delicious. The single hardworking waitress provided good service, and our food orders arrived swiftly. We'll be back, found a new favourite restaurant!

Great food and fantastic service with careful attention to detail. They have perfectly captured the taste of fine dining in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. It’s a great spot for a great meal out that won’t break the bank.

Apiary

33 Newington Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1QR, UK – 0131 668 4999

Friendly staff and owners. Great food at reasonable prices, plenty of variety and gluten free requirements are catered for. Some slightly odd flavour combinations but never had a meal I could not finish.

Amazing. Absolutely great food. I had a nice curry soup for starter, and lamb for main course, which was sensational - possibly my best dish of the year. Nice dessert too. Decent prices, good service and nice atmosphere. I will definitely be back.

Nursery and Preschools

St Margarets Nursery

10 Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh EH16 5NE, UK – 0131 667 0778

Absolutely love being a staff member at st. Margaret’s nursery & preschool. Have been here for over a year now and going to be starting my level 4 soon that the management team have given me amazing support and encouragement to start the course. They are great at providing us with resources that we need for the children. Throughout the nursery we are provided with lots of support and great resources for every age group. It’s an amazing team in the nursery to work with and get lots of praise for your achievements and would recommend it highly.

I have worked at St Margarets for several years and love working there. The staff are great and we all work well as a team. The large garden is amazing and the children thrive outside as well as inside. The job is demanding but very rewarding and I have formed very good bonds with the children and the parents 💕
