Dental Surgeries

High Barnet Dental Care

59 High St, Barnet EN5 5UR, UK – 020 8275 2980

Although I had to wait a couple of weeks for their first available appointment, the care was exemplary. Findings well explained, evidence on treatments cited. A very good dental practice - would highly recommend.

I have been with this practice for around 4 years and I find them excellent and efficient. I used to be scared to have a filling but with today's modern technology treatment are pain free. I would recommend the dental practice to anybody. Laura F

Portner Pittack Dental Practice

8-9 Thornfield Parade, Holders Hill Rd, London, Mill Hill east NW7 1LN, UK – 020 8349 3924

jonathan and his reception staff 1st class... Great practice. Highly recommend.

Always First Class, have been going to Jon and his team for probably 20 years now and can't recommend highly enough, professional and caring in every aspect of dentistry. Meeta is a great Hygienist too, as are the front desk girls ;-)

Woodhouse Dental Practice

229A Woodhouse Rd, London N12 9BD, UK – 020 8368 9229

I had a a hygiene appointment and the results was amazing. I will visit them again 100%. This is the first dentist i have been to that have been very welcoming, friendly and try to make thinks conviction to me. Whenever i am there i feel very calm, reassured and comfortable. Highly recommended

When the practice was relatively newer, Dr Khan was available to NHS customers and he never disappointed. However as the practice flourished owing to his skill, he dropped NHS patients in favour of private patients which wasn't very nice. Even so, he'd make an exception once in a while to see the older clients. However what irks me, is that they are constantly pushing clients to make appointments with the hygienist which aren't covered. You'd go in with a specific problem and they'll ensure that you make an appointment with the hygienist before the doctor saw you again. Also, unfortunately as there isn't a step free access, I had to look for a new practice. I do wish Dr. Khan the very best as he is an exceptional doctor.

Torrington Park Group Practice

16 Torrington Park, London N12 9SS, UK – 020 3667 5030

Excellent system for dealing with urgent appointments for children - I am always able to see a GP if needed and the doctors I have seen have been understanding and given excellent care. Thanks too to the reception team for managing the appointments system effectively.

I tried to book an appointment today and because of the poor signal on my side, I couldn't hear the appointment time properly through my mobile so I requested the phone operator to repeat, so she repeated around 3-4 times until I finally got it. Before I hanged out, I heard the phone operator saying things like 'Oh..my..God' which she should have done it after I hanged off. On the other side, my GP was good so it made my day at the end.

Southgate Surgery

270 Chase Side, London N14 4PR, UK – 020 8440 9301

Cornwall House Surgery Gp Practice

Cornwall Ave, Finchley, London N3 1LD, UK – 020 8346 1976

Have had good experiences here. Practice nurse Alison was lovely. Dr cuddis was also very nice. Have been able to get same day appointments if I needed them urgently. Thank you.

Just wanted to say thanks to all the staff at the surgery. Despite the crisis engulfing the NHS at present, my family always seem to get prompt and high quality care.

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.

Barnet Hospital

Wellhouse Ln, Barnet EN5 3DJ, UK – 020 8216 4600

I have to congratulate Barnet Hospital A& E team. I had my CT scan, blood and urine test done within 3 hrs of my arrival.Everyone was so caring and attentive.Top class treatment from start to finish. I feel much better a day after already.A BIGTHANK YOU XXX

I want to thank the amazing staff of Barnet Hospital A and E who were on duty on Friday 1st December. Thank you for your kindness, humour, love, patience, speed (notwithstanding what's possible if life threatening events intercede). When I arrived with my 90 year old mum, every single person - from the fantastic paramedics, Sarah and colleague - to the lovely security man who took me to the place to get a taxi at 2.00 am, was kind, committed, hard working and genuine. I was incredibly moved to see hospital staff from all over the world, all colours, speaking many languages, smiling, helping and supporting each other aswell as a very challenging and mainly elderly patient group. I'm sick of people knocking our amazing NHS, completely free to the user . Also without all nationalities converging from all over the world, we would not have an NHS. Charlie, Katherine, Marta, Dr David, Michael and all the others last night, thank you. You set the bar very high with your warmth and tenderness, patience and commitment. I could not do your job (I'm a psychotherapist). Paramedics, nurses, porters, cleaners, doctors, reception and security - you made my mum feel welcome and cared for last night. X

Hadley Wood Hospital

52 Moxon St, Barnet EN5 5TS, UK – 020 7317 7751

I found this Hospital and all the staff to be exceptionally good. Nothing seemed to be a problem and they couldn't do enough for you. It's nice to have a meaningful chat with them at different stages as it relaxes you no end. The blonde receptionist was bright and cheery and the endoscopy was really not bad at all - the advice to breathe through the nose was spot on and i decided to give the sedative a miss as i was very relaxed. The lovely black girl - forget her name - was great to me getting me a few cups of coffee and biscuits which i really enjoyed after the fasting. The Doctor, Dr Alisa had travelled a long way in heavy traffic and never complained. The CT abdomen scan was a breeze, again great staff. All in all - a top class experience. Very modern, the hospital and almost new i was told and what a great place !!

I would like to thank all the staff at Hadley Wood Hospital for so many reasons including ensuring everyone I dealt with at every stage from my initial referral by the NHS, to booking cab for me to leave. In between, I dealt with courteous admissions staff, an outstanding Nurse Kennedy who provided a detailed and reassuring telephone assessment and consultation, a flawless receptionist, and wonderfully friendly and professional staff on the day of my dental surgery. I met a nurse on her first day who will no doubt enjoy working with her friendly team, and I'm sure her warmth did not go unnoticed. I was introduced to/treated by 11 members of staff, including nurses, the matron, surgeon, and the anaesthetist who respected my privacy and made sure I had everything I needed. This highly-organised team is magnificent and I know private and NHS patients who may be referred to them will recommend this new hospital. I am currently recovering pain-free after having teeth extracted, and my relief at the surgery being over, and having been treated so well have left me very happy.

Great place. Helpful and friendly staff. Completely the opposite to Barrowell Green - go there at your peril.

Recycle All Ltd

2 Woodberry Grove, London N12 0DR, UK – 0800 774 7005

I have used Recycle All company twice in the last year for House moves in Surrey and Christchurch, Dorset. A friend in North London recommended that I use them, and I have no regrets! They took perfect care of everything they moved, including some valuable items . Each member of the team involved was friendly, professional, good humoured and nothing was too much trouble. I would like to say a huge thanks to you all involved, you all worked so hard, you were amazing! Will definitely use you in the future.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

My experience of using Recycle All waste clearance was satisfactory. Their fee was reasonable and close to the estimated quote. They arrived when they said they would, cleared our rubbish and cleaned up behind them. They provided a reasonable service for a reasonable price. As a satisfied customer I will happily use them again.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Barnet

Izgara Restaurant

1274 High Rd, Whetstone, London N20 9HH, UK – 020 8445 2196

Amazing food. Quick service. Lamb shish n the sea bass are delicious. If you are ordering take aways make sure you remind them to put the rice in.

Gorgeous food and fantastic staff - friendly and attentive. Will definitely be coming back!

Melange Restaurant

135 High St, Barnet EN5 5UZ, UK – 020 8440 1747

Good food and decor. Horrible practice of adding a "discretionary 12.5% service charge" to your bill without warning. We were only a table of two. Were extremely rude when we left this off the bill, at our discretion, and instead tipped staff directly. Took the shine off an otherwise nice evening. Would have given four stars without the tip debacle.

Nice food , great steaks a bit on the pricey side but good

Beheshte Barin Restaurant

118 Ballards Ln, Finchley, London N3 2DN, UK – 020 8045 4431

Great ambience, attentive staff, excellent menu and beautifully presented food. Reasonably priced, especially given the high quality ingredients. Strongly recommended.

We had seen this place a lot, but never ventured in. Well worth a try. Getting the mixed meats was a great choice for 2 hungry people, it would be easily stretched to 3. Bread is freshly made and fabulous, especially if you have starters. I won't claim to be an expert on Persian food, so I can't say it is the best in the area. On first appearance it seemed to be similar to Turkish food, but it has a better range of flavours and more interesting. All the meat was nicely done, tender and not charred to a crisp. We were a bit clueless how to eat the starters, but will ask next time. Stop walking past this place and give it a try.

Nursery and Preschools

Mace Montessori School

Gloucester House, 150 Woodside Ln, London N12 8TP, UK – 020 8446 1969

I was trying to find somewhere more school-like to fill in the year between 4-5 years.The environment which has been created is very conducive to learning and development. Teachers and staff are very helpful and friendly.I would definitely recommend to other.

Nightingale Day Nursery

23 Victoria Rd, London, Barnet EN4 9PH, UK – 020 8441 8788

I found Nightingale last September when I was looking for a new nursery for my 3 year old, nearer to home. It is a lovely place! All of the staff are exceptional - really friendly, the children love them all, so caring and very responsible. Each one can tell you exactly what your daughter has been up to, the whole day, which makes me think they all participate really fully in each child's needs and development. They are very clean, prepare great food (home made cup cakes sometimes!), and spend as much time outside with the children as possible - which again, I love, as I think it makes them really healthy. Would not fault it, and would recommend to anyone - especially now my younger, 2 year old daughter has also just started there and she loves it already too!

Both my children have been thought Nightingale Nursery. Peggy and Jenny (the mum and daughter who run it) are fantastic. As soon as you enter you feel the relaxed calm environment in which both my children flourished. My wife and myself have been very happy. Charlie

Gainsborough Pre School

St Stephens Memorial Hall, Christ Church, 620 High Rd, London N12 0NU, UK – 07903 803992

Gainsborough is a brilliant little community preschool. Moments from North Finchley it is absolutely perfect for me. Timing wise, the sessions suit so well. With the 9.15am start, I can do the school run first to Moss Hall and then drop off my little one to Gainsborough. Also, the 12.15pm finish means he is tired and ready for lunch when I* collect him. I don't like the thought of him eating or napping outside the house so it works perfectly for me to collect him, feed him lunch and then put him to sleep until school pick up. Essentially, it is everything I need and I don't pay for more time than I use, which I was doing at his previous nursery. Not to mention, the staff are brilliant - slightly older then the staff at other nurseries and mostly parents themselves which gives them real compassion and connection with the children. They have always dealt with any incidents professionally, discreetly and sensitively. They almost always have room so you are spared the stress of waiting lists - although I can't see this lasting for too long so get in quick before everyone else finds them too! I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Frith Manor Primary School

Lullington Garth, London N12 7BN, UK – 020 8346 2388

Absolutely love Frith Manor Nursery – it is very warm, friendly, safe and welcoming. The children seem very relaxed and at home. The staff are wonderful and very helpful, my son loves them all which makes me very comfortable leaving him there. There is always a pleasant atmosphere and lots of activities going on for him to participate in and parents are always kept updated and involved in their child's development. Our son has come on leaps and bounds since attending Frith Manor Nursery. The teachers are very professional, informative and caring I would definitely recommend Frith Manor Nursery to all our friends and family! Thank you to all the nursery team.

Very good school i have made a lot of friends very good teachers. I would go to this school.

Vita et Pax School

6a Priory Cl, London N14 4AT, UK – 020 8449 8336

As a pupil from Reception to Year 4 I loved the school. It was a slow start as I was very shy but once I made friends my popularity grew with kids and teachers and my real personality was shown. Once moved to Berkshire I never regretted moving for a solid two years. Now entering senior school with the teachers not as homely and friends being a lot more snakes as you would find elsewhere I would 100% recommend the school
