Banks

NatWest

21 Eastgate St, Gloucester GL1 1NH, UK – 0345 788 8444

Came in today and had a few things to sort out. "Shez" was the ladies name I think. Great service and really helped me out thank you. Exactly why I bank with Natwest.

Service here used to be quite slow and sluggish but has definitey improved vastly in last 3 months. They could improve by having a separate cash desk for business customers at busy times especially Fridays.

Barclays Bank

18 Southgate St, Gloucester GL1 2DH, UK – 0345 734 5345

I think it's great to have machines (as long as they all work).so much quicker than waiting at the desk I'm in and out ,all you have to do is read Instructions on screen if you get stuck ask !

I would recommend!

The Co-operative Bank

23A St Aldate St, Gloucester GL1 1RU, UK – 01452 385020

Looks dated inside but customer service is excellent

Parking's difficult, unless you're disabled then you can park right by the front door of the bank! You can park in Hare Lane or round the corner near Wilkinsons.

Clarence House Dental Health Centre

22 Clarence St, Gloucester GL1 1DP, UK – 01452 522720

Being a nervous visitor to the dentist I felt I must thank Kate and her assistant for the brilliant job they did today. Kate showed genuine empathy and was considerate and gentle. I experienced no pain and was reassured throughout the procedure. Thank you

All care is sensitive and to an extremely high standard. I wish I had found them years ago.

Quedgeley House Dental Practice

Unit 39-42, Space Park, Olympus Park, Quedgeley GL2 4AL, UK – 01452 886954

Don't be put off by these other reviews. I have to say I have nothing but praise for team. I've found them efficient, flexible as they can be, understanding and reasonable. Special thanks to Georgia for clear and professional advice without being cold. Good work guys.

Found all staff to be friendly and helpful. The two dentists who had assisted me were extremely patient and calming. Highly recommend. Please note appointments can take a while to get but well worth it. After having several lots of treatment due to my fear of not going to a dentist for over 12 years, my dentist is superb. He is patient and caring and his dental assistant, exactly the same. Best by far

St.James Dental

St James', Quedgeley, Gloucester GL2 4WD, UK – 01452 727667

My family have been patients at St James for the past 6 years. The practice provides an excellent technical service for both hygienist and dentistry requirements along with a smile from all members of staff. They went out of their way to provide out of hours treatment for my son after an accident. Their prompt action to meant that he was able to retain a front tooth. On a personal note I have found Oli to be a well informed dentist who is very approachable. All this and at a reasonable cost.

What a fantastic practice, from the moment you walk in,friendly,professional staff greet you. ( first impressions are very important ) I have had lots of cosmetic treatment done over the past year and Imran's attention to detail is second to none, he takes time to explain and certainly makes you feel at ease, and Sammy, Imran's right hand lady, with that lovely smile is always ready to hold my hand if necessary. IMRAN AND SAMMY -what a team.

Dr Foster's Waterfront Bar & Restaurant

Kimberley Warehouse, Gloucester GL1 2ES, UK – 01452 382157

What a lovely place this is, the food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is great and the service is brilliant. Rachael was our waitress and what a lovely lady she was. Constantly wears a smile and very friendly, she made our night a good one. A credit to the team.

Food and drinks were fine, but service was not. Dirty plates and cups everywhere, sticky table. Too bad, the interior is nice and atmospheric.

Rosebank Surgery

153b B4072, Gloucester GL1 5JQ, UK – 01452 543000

This week both my daughter and my baby son have been poorly.. meaning two separate visits to the surgery. I have to say the receptionist I spoke to both times on the phone was so helpful and polite aswell as empthetic . We saw the nurse practitioners the same day within hours of phoning asking to see someone. I forget the gentlemans name , but we also saw Jenny for my son and both of them were so patient, professional and kind. Not at any point made me feel like I was wasting there time and not rushing us out. Absolutely fantastic staff a credit to the surgery. Jenny especially took the time to examine other minor things I mentioned regarding my son (which I never asked for ) and she treated accordingly. Then she followed up with a phone call the next day. A truly caring person . You made my week a lot easier .

When I first joined I was nervous due to the poor reviews, but my experience over the last year has been nothing but exceptional. Helpful staff (yes they are busy but always try and help), seen on time, got referral I wanted and the midwives are great.

The College Yard Surgery

Mount St, Gloucester GL1 2RE, UK – 01452 412888

Excellent surgery.Dr Miller is a fantastic doctor, who efficiently sorted out a health problem that I have had for many years.

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.

I recently had major surgery at Gloucester Royal Hospital and was an inpatient for 3 days. The professional care and kindness i was given was excellent. The Consultants, Doctors and Nursing staff were reassuring and Professional. The staff answered all my questions and worries with straight and helpful answers. I was treated with dignity and privacy. The food i was given was tasty, hot and well prepared. The rooms were cleaned at least twice a day and were spotless. This is the NHS at its best. Thank you Gloucester Royal Hospital

My 3 year son has to go for a minor surgery..we arrived around 8 am, lots of parking spaces , everyone was friendly and welcome us. All has been done pretty professional and by 2 pm we were out. I want to thank all the paediatrics staff and Doctors.

Why is it people have to moan so much!! obviuosly got nothing better to do!! We have been to the site more times than i care to remember & have ALWAYS found the staff to be helpful & cheerful. Generally its the atitude that people go to the tip with than can make a difference. Get a life & cheer up. Well done to the staff for doing an excellent job!!!

Excellent management! Easy booking online. We took a horse trailer full of hardcore and a lovely gentleman called Mark (with glasses) assisted me along with a younger lady in correctly disposing waste. Additionally they helped to lift heavy items. Genuinely delighted with the experience. There is no need for people to fly tip with a service this good available.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Framilode

The barge restaurant

The Docks, Gloucester GL1 2DN, UK – 01452 506779

First time I went here the food was excellent. However the last two times the food has been mediocre at best. The restaurant is pretty small (not a bad thing), but the menu is very extensive, personally I would say too extensive. To me is seems like they are sacrificing quality to serve such a large menu. The steaks weren't the best quality and the pie was more pastry than anything else. The staff however are very lovely people. It's a shame about the food quality as this could be a great place if they just concentrated on serving a high quality, reduced menu.

If you are looking for a good meal at Gloucester docks, you couldn't do better than the Barge.We had dinner on Saturday evening and immediately booked for Sunday lunch. Food outstanding, prices very reasonable, surroundings​ and service excellent.

Sahara Lounge Restaurant & Grill

3 Brunswick Rd, Gloucester GL1 1QN, UK – 01452 415855

A lovely family run restaurant with very high standards and a love of good food. The owner and his family are caring, generous, and really lovely people. The food is excellent and a good variety. I can thoroughly recommend it to every taste.

Love Sahara Lounge. Good food. Tasty. Big portions. Does takeaway service too or eat in. Owner is fab.

Blue Ginger Indian Restaurant

72, Bristol Rd, Gloucester, Gloucestershire, Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL1 5SD, UK – 01452 411102

Nice selection of food. Husband loved it but found mine too hot despite asking for them to make mine milder.

Lovely staff, very good food and very good portion sizes. The sizzling meals done in the tandoor are amazing and highly recommended. Have been multiple times over the last 2-3 years and the only shortcoming previously was that the curries could have had a little more spice, however on recent experience this has been resolved and warrants the Blue Ginger a rarely awarded 5 stars. We have had delivery from here too and the delivery was very quick, fresh and still really good quality food. 3 Standout Good Things/Things to try: 1. Chicken Tikka (dry) is absolutely amazing and comes out sizzling on a hot plate 2. The set meal for 2 is amazing value for money and could feed a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 young kids) 3. Bring your own alcohol means that bills aren't pushed up by costly drinks 3 Areas that could be improved: 1. Naan bread isn't as flavoursome as some we've had and has on occasion been a little overcooked 2. The mint yogurt isn't as nice as we've had elsewhere and is actually a little more sweet than minty 3. The sides that come with the poppadoms don't include spicy option (in most restaurants this is the lime pickle) I like to try and include 3 points in each category for my main reviews and so the negatives and positives should really be taken in the context of the whole review. In the case of the Blue Ginger, this restaurant really is amazing and those areas of improvement would only, in my opinion, improve an already amazing restaurant. It certainly hasn't (and won't) put me off going time and time again and definitely shouldn't put you off giving one of the best Indian Restaurants in Gloucester a try.

Into-Play At The Quays

24 Llanthony Rd, Gloucester GL2 5HQ, UK – 01452 413131

My boy/girl twins have attended Into-Play nursery since they were 2 years old. They have now been there for almost 18 months and I have never looked back. I had the option of using my sister to look after them who is also a childminder but I wanted her to remain their 'Auntie' so chose to look for a playgroup independently. Into-Play came highly recommended to me via lots of friends and I am thrilled that we found them. All of the staff who work there are highly professional and genuinely care about every single child that attends. When dropping the twins off I can walk away with complete confidence that they have been left in capable hands and honestly cannot recommend them more highly. I feel very lucky that they have had such a great start to their little social life/schooling and cannot thank Into-Play enough : ) xxx

Can't rate these guys high enough. Our son has been going full time since he was 8 months old. He crawls off with a massive grin in the morning and is always happily playing when I pick him up. Louise (his KW) and the girls in the under twos are amazing and I'm sure he sees them as extended family! Going back to work when you've had a little one is tricky; but knowing that our sprog is in amazing hands makes it that bit better!
