130 New St, Birmingham B2 4JU, UK – 0345 740 4404

I would recommend Brad (Bradley). He demonstrates an excellent ability to connect with people. Very helpful and nice guy. Helped me open up my account within 30 mins without any hassle. He answered my all queries and explained me about bank features and products very well. Employee like Brad are an asset to bank. I have given 4 stars as I have yet to use features of bank, post that, I will reconsider my review about bank. Hopefully it would be great.

Fantastic staff, very helpful. They treat you like a person, not like in other banks. I recommend this place with clear conscience

Local Chambers of Commerce for B19 3TG. 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. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Couple of things to keep in mind. Make sure you are on time. Even if you are 5 min late, you will be asked to book another appointment. I believe staff is well behaved as long as you follow the guidelines. You will get lot of parking space within 2 min walking 🚢 distance so no issue. If you are going to book a child birth then you can go alone as long as you are in civil partnership. No need to bring you new born. Book 9 AM appointment and you will be served in 5 min. Overall, I had great experience.

Very friendly staff. Will take there time to go through the details with you. Was seen within five minutes of arriving. Brilliant service.

The Islamic Council UK

43 Temple Row, Birmingham B2 5LS, UK – 0800 622 6111

I would highly recommend them as they do not abuse Sharia Law. I can not thank them enough in the manner they dealt with my case. Some people dont like them because they dont encourage men or women to stay in a abusive relationship. Instead they listen to both side of the story. Plz dont go to fake Sharia councils.They will only waste your time and money. Contact Islamic Council UK and inshaAllah you will find out for yourself that they provide excellent customer service Alhamdulillah...

Highfield Dental Clinic

Dr.Assadi has totally changed my fear of dentists. He is so caring and understanding as well as being a fantastic dentist! His team are also lovely, caring and friendly. I'm loving my new smile!

Dr Assadi is fantastic!. All the team are friendly and professional. Would highly recommend.

Will Murphy Dentistry

51 Newhall St, Birmingham B3 3QR, UK – 0121 236 7630

This is a fantastic dentist, the surgery is well equipped, welcoming and doesn't feel like a traditional dentist. The best thing about the place is the manner in which Will deals with his patients. Always reassuring and trying to do the very best for them. Highly recommended.

I can thoroughly recommend you use Will as your dentist. He delivers a professional, courteous and caring service. He has looked after my dental requirements for many years and my teeth remain in perfect working order. Paul Tracey

The Dentist in Town

10 The Minories, Birmingham B4 6AG, UK – 0121 236 8681

I can honestly say Tom is THE Dentist in town. Soft spoken and always careful about your comfort there's nowhere else I'd go to get my teeth treated and although my teeth don't need to much work at the moment, I've met people who have been seeing Tom for over 20 years and that says it all. If you work in the city centre it's only a few steps away for a check up, a nice chat and a lovely cuppa'. Thanks Tom and the team!

I am a "newbie" patient at The Dentist in Town and have recently undergone quite a few interventions under Tom's immaculate care. I was made to feel welcome, comfortable and well informed about all the treatments that I required. Tom has restored my faith in Dentistry and I wholeheartedly recommend his service to all those who feel a bit dubious about choosing a dentist. Tom and his wonderful team are must for all those who are of a nervous disposition and looking for an exceptional standard of care.

Hockley Medical Practice

60 Carver St, Birmingham B1 3AL, UK – 0121 554 1757

Cannot agree with this comments. Me and my husband join this GP 4 months ago, we never had any problems. Sometimes I need emergency appointment, I call reception at 8 am and I'm coming to see doctor few hours later. Receptionists are very busy, but they not rude at all. Always try to help you.

I don't recognise the negative descriptions of the receptionists. They have always been efficient, friendly and helpful towards me. I have had to have a number of appointments and I've never had to wait long past my appointment time and I've had great care from all concerned.

Halcyon Medical

67 - 69 High St, Birmingham B4 7TA, UK – 0121 411 0363

I find that the surgery is much quieter during the university holidays than during term time. That said, I have always found the reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. I think the medical staff are extremely good and always listen and are very good at taking the time to explain test results and, if you need to be referred to hospital, why you need referred and what the potential outcomes might be. I think it is entirely unfair to criticise the staff because the surgery is busy - I think they do a fantastic job of balancing costs and staffing, with the patient experience in an extremely busy surgery where a large number of the patients have poor to no English. An example I overheard in the waiting room - the reception staff at the last minute changed a patient's doctor because they realised she had very little English as she was from Iran and they switched her to a doctor who could talk to her in Farsi.

Newtown Health Centre

171 Melbourne Ave, Birmingham B19 2JA, UK – 0121 411 0349

I've been with this surgery since day one n I've not had any major issues ok they ain't perfect sometimes getting my script un signed but then I Hav to go all the way back to solve it , all the staff that Hav been there from time r more than helpful,its not their fault wen its busy they only human n get stressed like us , I've learnt as long as u b nice with them they do go out of their way to help.but they can improve on the telephone waiting times😁😁😁

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.

Had my baby daughter here recently, serenity suite staff are amazing. Looked after me and my partner and were helpful with advise and support around the clock while we were there.

Attended a@e today, and I have to say the service was excellent, all the staff we came into contact with were really helpful and polite. One member of staff really stood out her name is Gulshan ( a nurse) I found her to be professional, caring, and nothing was to much trouble for her. she explained everything she was doing and kept us updated as to where we would be going after a@e, she is a credit to your hospital

3 Brindley Pl, Birmingham B1 2JB, UK – 0121 632 6001

Exploring around the canal area in Birmingham and was deciding what cuisine to try when we chanced on CAU an Argentina restaurant. We ordered the pork belly and hummus starter. Sorry didn't have time to take photos on that. The pork belly melt in the mouth, everything is tasty. Service is good, food is good too! Highly recommended.

Great venue for pre-concert meal. Well presented and tasty starters and desserts although the main event is the excellent steaks. The service was attentive, efficient and friendly and made our evening which was for a special wedding anniversary celebration. Well located for the Barclaycard Arena and much better than eating at the venue. Highly recommended.

Barajee Restaurant

265 Broad St, Birmingham B1 2DS, UK – 0121 643 6700

Fantastic service early on a Friday evening and the food was very good too. Not rushed at all. Very accommodating of special requests. 'Sat with a great window view of the boats and early evening 'night life' for the children to watch. A lovely experience all round. We would certainly return again.

Not bad. Very busy. Friday night. Hard to get waiters to acknowledge you for more drinks and stuff. But overall a good night out. 4 people with 2 rounds of drinks cost about Β£120

Nursery and Preschools

Edgbaston Kindergarten

413-415 Gillott Rd, Birmingham B16 9LL, UK – 0121 455 0883

Really wonderful setting. I knew when I first visited to inspect the place and all the older children rushed out of their room to see who I was and ask me questions about my baby that it was right for us. Then I saw a kindergartener be tasked with independently taking an item to another member of staff in a different room, and I was even more sure. The staff here really get to know your kid and how they tick, and they thrive as a result. It's the Montessori way. There's rarely any crying, the kids are always happy and appropriately challenged. Both my kids started at 12 months and left aged 4, picked up their alphabet and numbers quickly and generally loved their time here. It really felt like an extension of the family. They were very supportive of my parenting choices - baby signing, breastfeeding, washable nappies and daytime naps even for 4yr olds, and the kids were happy and secure as a result. My kids still ask to go back to visit, a year later!
