There is a friendly set of people here who are ready to assist and advise. It can get busy but there are seats if you need a rest.

What a lovely branch. Yet another bank leaving the Mapperley area in November 2018. Nationwide, Halifax, now RBS. Choice is going. Plus, leaves the elderly and people with mobility issues with less and less choice. Not every one can access public transport, let alone getting into the city centre to do their banking. More ATMs are also being lost. These can only do limited transactions. What about depositing cheques or lose change?

It is sad that a local branch of RBS has reduced its opening hours, however this should not detract from the view of the service that this local branch provides which in my experience has always been excellent in terms of customer care, hence me having stayed with them for 20 years - I have not found any other bank I have tried in the past competes with their customer service

Dental Surgeries

Holly Tree House Dental Practice

334 Mansfield Rd, Nottingham NG5 2EF, UK – 0115 962 2882

By far the most caring dentist and hygienist we have ever been registered with. My husband was terrified of going to the dentist, but he now attends all his appointments without the same sense of foreboding and fear that he has had all his life. I used to have to have my teeth scaled and polished every three months, but because of the thorough job the hygienist does, I now only need to have this procedure done every six months or so. It's especially lovely to get old fashioned, professional, friendly customer service too!

First visit here today- extremely happy with the experience- very friendly welcoming receptionists, hardly any wait time and a great examination with thorough check, relaxed but professional and clear explanations of any issues/queries/treatment options.

Porchester Dental Practice

198 Porchester Rd, Nottingham NG3 6LH, UK – 0115 950 0079

We have been 4 times. The dentist examines more precisely than any I have known and I always walk out feeling like my teeth are back to the condition they were when new. The dentist finds all issues and corrects them in super quick time and is also very straight talking regarding the honest truth of the teeth and gums and the options available My daughter has autism and has always refused to see a dentist due to fear of new places, but the dentist made her feel so calm and relaxed that she completed an examination and now my daughter is happy to have her teeth checked at every visit. We always leave with a list of things to do which makes us feel sure that we have the tools to keep our teeth in excellent health and feel that we are well looked after and cared for. Highly recommend this excellent practice to anyone.

A service that is second to none from the minute you walk through the door. For the first time in over 40 years of visiting a dentist, I had my first ever, truly "painless injection" no mouth full of cotton wool pads and no "just get it in as quick as possible" attitude. For many years I had 2 damaged/chipped front teeth that I believed unrepairable without costly private treatment. How wrong was I. Within what seemed like a few seconds my teeth were repaired to such fantastic condition that I could not stop showing them off to everyone, as I had hidden them behind my hands for so long. I would not hesitate to recommend this dental practise to anyone, even those who are nervous of dentist. Even the girls on reception are pleasant, happy and go above and beyond to accommodate patients need. I can genuinely say that everything about your treatment is explain in full detail, with the final decision being the one that suits YOU and your requirement the best. A genuine caring practice.......I did not receive any free treatment to write this review nor am I related to anyone at this practise, but I do believe that good service deserves good comments

Arnold Dental

77c High St, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 7DJ, UK – 0115 920 0571

I would certainly highly recommend this practice.

Arnold Dental has been the family dentist for over ten years now. The reception staff are friendly and approachable. The assistants are helpful and the Dentist's are informative and supportive. All in all not a bad place at all.

Highcroft Surgery - Dr J B McKeating & Partners

High St, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 7BQ, UK – 0115 883 2330

I have been with this surgery now for four years and have seen a great improvement over the last few months. If you do as requested and phone at 8 o’clock in the morning you can usually get to talk to a doctor on the phone or an appointment within 48 hours. However, I did have to wait over an hour in the surgery before I was seen on the day of my appointment but luckily I remembered to take my book with me so I was occupied. I found the doctors and nurses there are thorough and interested in listening to me. I have no complaints apart from the long waiting time. I think because of lack of funding to GP surgeries they are always paddling upstream against the current. Generally well done. Diane

Just have to say how good you was today.Walked in there today with no appiontment within 40 minutes seen a doctor.Got a presription seen a nurse and had a tetnus jab.Thank you so much for your service it was fantastic xxx

The Priory Hospital Nottingham

Ransom Rd, Nottingham NG3 5GS, UK – 0115 969 3388

The Nottingham Priory is unlike most other Priories in that it deals only with drugs and alcohol problems which is in my view a real advantage. Most other priory hospitals treat psychiatric conditions too. The 12-Step programme is not religious, or at least it is not meant to be. Unfortunately it gets taken over by overly zealous people and it can appear sinister. The facts are though that it is one of the most successful methodologies available. The only way to research what would suit you, other than visiting loads of clinics is to use a professional online referral agency such as Admit Services or WayAhead Rehab. Neither charges for their independent advice. Never pay a referral agency; you pay the clinic. But finding an ideal clinic is likely to be impossible. The Nottingham Priory suits a lot of people and there is little choice in Nottingham.

I entered the priory Nottingham for two weeks 1 detox and 1 "therapy" due to excess alcohol use after years of over the top consumption which was beginning to effect my business and family , whilst my stay was made comfortable by all concerned ie staff,nurses and patients I found the therapy side of my stay very sinister, I will explain later. week 1 involved detox which was spot on, the nurses were excellent and the medication prescribed in a very professional and monitored manner which made what is a very difficult process easier, if you've ever detoxed before you will know what I mean. week 2 involved "therapy", it is this side of things I didn't really agree with, firstly it involves a process called the 12 step program, I suggest you research this to see what it entails as it is extensively used but never really publicised, I had never heard of it before. personally I found it very religious and cultlike with a lot of personal things said in meetings which I found uncomfortable and if you aren't a religious person like myself it might be a bit hard to swallow. From a personal point of view I found the priory ok, but like I said do your research and ask questions. summery staff, nurses 10/10 premises 10/10 food 10/10 detox10/10 care 10/10 "therapy" -/1 theres not enough noughts, far too much emphasis on spirituality(religion) and the "Big Book" and 12 step nonsense hope this helps

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Nottingham

Le Mistral

575 Mansfield Rd, Nottingham NG5 2JN, UK – 0115 911 6116

A lovely little bistro in the heart of Sherwood on the Mansfield Road. A French themed menu with a good selection of chefs specials. The wine selection is very good with good quality wines on offer. The food was freshly cooked with good ingredients and was of a high standard. I would have no problem in recommending this restaurant.

Really nice food. Friendly service

Ania Polish Restaurant

558 Mansfield Rd, Nottingham NG5 2FS, UK – 0115 985 8666

This one took me by surprise and not necessarily in a good way. Having read many reviews directing me to the 'best restaurant in Nottingham' I was disappointed to find that the food was a little lack lustre. Don't get me wrong it was tasty and not doubt the recipes authentic polish, but it was mostly under seasoned, under ambitious and overall and little bland. The portion sizes were very generous though, and the chap serving us was a super hero! The drink menu was comprehensive. There is some. Parking outside, but give yourself 5 minutes to find one before your reservation.

Fantastic restaurant. We've been quite a few times now and will keep going back. Always a fab atmosphere and perfect food served and cooked by people who obviously care. Make sure you call in advance as it is always fully booked once you try it you will understand why

Himalayan Inn Nottingham

158 Front St, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 7EG, UK – 0115 920 5480

Went there for a Christmas meal and it remains as a restaurant experience I compare others to. The service was second to none and the food was authentic and tasty. Nothing was too much trouble and they spoke passionately about their home and what an amazing place it is. Genuine people running a fantastic establishment, had this been in the centre of the City this place would have made restaurant reviews and critics lists easily. Would highly recommend.

Great place for family meal or a meal with friends. The staff are attentive and helpful. And it's always service with a smile. I loved it. Food was really tasty. Excellent

Coteswood House Pre-School and Day Nursery

Our eldest son went to Coteswood House School five years ago, our daughter is there currently and our youngest son is starting full time this coming September. It's a fantastic little school, in a great setting with lovely teachers. Our experiences have always been positive. I'm happy to have been able to play a part in saving Coteswood House from closure in April 2014 along with all the other parents, ex-pupils and staff that have rallied to save this little gem in the local community.

Arnold St Marys Pre-school

Church Ln, Arnold, Nottingham NG5 8HJ, UK – 07969 544137

My youngest son has recently started here and is loving it. His older sister attended so I knew he would be in safe hands. All the staff have remained the same and you can see how well they all work as a team and their genuine love for the children. They provided a very gentle transition period which resulted in no tears for my son, even in the early days. I have received large amounts of feedback regarding their progress, with lots of examples and photos (which I was given when my daughter left). The outdoor space is excellent and I love that my active child will get lots of opportunity to burn off energy! When my daughter attended I received several feedback survey's and its great to know they are continually looking at ways to improve.

After first sending my daughter here 4 years ago I just had to send my youngest. She started in September and already can see a hugh difference in her speech, knowledge of colours and many other things. I love that the children have the opportunity to play either indoor or outdoor at their own leisure be it sunny or raining. The staff are amazing and nice to see the same dedicated staff as the first time I came. Overall it's a brilliant pre school to help your little ones get ready for big school.
