HSBC

I made my account months ago with a very well spoken gentleman who made the process very easy and very enjoyable, not tedious in the slightest. I left the bank feeling valued as a customer and a human. Great customer service. This cannot be said for the other banks I have visited to say the least.

Local Chambers of Commerce for N20. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support.

Jobcentre Plus

15 Western Parade, Barnet, Hertfordshire EN5 1AH Western Parade, New Barnet, Barnet EN5 1AH, UK – 0843 487 1844

In my previous job; I used to liase with Jobcentre Plus and DWP staff on almost daily basis. Then, the atmosphere at Jobcentres was inhospitable and austere. When a close relative told me she had to visit Barnet Jobcentre. I advised her to leave her sense of dignity behind and prepare for harsh treatment. BUT, I was very wrong, she found the staff very courteous, helpful and professional. The Jobcentre is opened Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Except on Wednesday 10 am to 5 pm & close on weekends.

Nicest jobcentre I've been too. Efficient, everyone is always working. Helpful, polite, nice. So different from the others I have been too. They treat you like humans! I miss it...

Eyes & Smiles - Opticians & Dentists

53 Friern Barnet Rd, London N11 3EG, UK – 020 8368 0924

Great service very professional and never wait more than 5 minutes and very happy with the final result. The place is spotless and the staff very friendly. Definitely best dental surgery in North London 10 out of 10 definitely recommend. I had an airpolish and white filling done I was feeling very comfortable during both treatments. I had an x-ray also was the first time I had a dentist taking pictures with a professional camera before and after the treatments which he sent to me by e-mail and I was able to see in person the job done. Great experience

The treatment I received at Eyes and Smiles Dentist was absolutely first class, I was also very impressed by the spotlessly clean premises. The Dentist who treated me (Preemal) is a very warm and friendly man, he was extremely gentle and meticulous in the cleaning procedure administered to myself. He was also highly informative and gave me useful information for looking after my teeth in the future. Overall I would recommend and thoroughly endorse all the help I received at Eyes and Smiles, the best Dentist I have ever used and that is coming from a 63 year old male. Lastly, just to add, their Optical Care is wonderful too, I have been with them for over twenty years and found them to be very kind people.

Barnet Dental Practice

37-39 E Barnet Rd, London, Barnet EN4 8RN, UK – 020 8441 8000

Having not been to the dentists in a while, I went with some apprehension, however from the moment I walked in the staff were reassuring, friendly and professional. Excellent customer service all round from the Dentist and reception staff. The service was so good that my two children have been enrolled too. It is safe to say that my next visit to the dentist will not be quite so long! Highly recommended.

My treatment was brilliant very nice dentist and dental nurse made me feel relaxed. No problems with admin staff they seem to be very busy so no time for chit chat

Hadley Wood Hospital

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

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.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Barnet

Anuraag Tandoori Restaurant

3 Station Parade, Barnet EN4 0DL, UK – 020 8449 1953

We had a very tasty meal and staff always friendly and attentive.

The food was perfectly pleasant, though unsurprising, but the service was somewhat bizarre. Asking for a large bottle of sparkling water was beyond them. It took two waiters and they still only brought a small one! This was pretty typical of the rest of the service! Not unpleasant, but there are plenty of nicer places to eat nearby.

Bayleaf Restaurant

1282-1284 High Road, London N20 9HH, UK – 020 8446 8671

Went here on date night and we were treated so nicely. Even given a free dessert. The host and waiter were great and the food was delicious!

Best Indian restaurant I have ever eaten in. I have taken my family here for meal a good many times and have always felt welcomed and really enjoyed our meal. I highly recommend going here for amazing food and wonderful service.

Beheshte Barin Restaurant

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

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.

Great Iranian restaurant, in fact best I've been to. Can get very busy so best to book in advance.

Nursery and Preschools

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

Moss Hall Nursery School

Primary and Secondary Schools

Dwight School London

6 Friern Barnet Ln, London N11 3LX, UK – 020 8920 0600

I am a student at Dwight London, and it is a good school overall, however the two complexes can be improved. A viable choice for a new international students coming into London. Very welcoming staff and teachers.

Went to school here for 5 years. Really enjoyed my time here as a student since the students are all extremely friendly, the teachers almost all welcoming and the teaching of generally excellent quality. The facilities however were somewhat lacking and some of the teachers questionable in regards to their teaching quality and completely understanding what they're teaching. However, this did not prevent me from having an incredible, eye-opening and wonder experience at this school.

Wren Academy

Hilton Ave, North Finchley, London N12 9HB, UK – 020 8492 6000

Excellent school, V disciplined, students are way better behaved than from any other local school.

Amazing atmosphere, teachers incredibly welcoming 👏

Walker Primary School

Chanique and Samia

Public & Preparatory Schools

Vita et Pax School

6a Priory Field Dr, Green Road, London, Edgware HA8 9PU, 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
