Banks

HSBC

38 High St, Dartford DA1 1DG, UK – 0345 740 4404

Been banking here since it was Midland Bank 25 or so years ago. Staff are always friendly and queues are not too bad.

TSB Bank

U111, West Mall, Bluewater Retail Park, Dartford DA9 9SS, UK – 01322 799998

I've found the staff to be super friendly and helpful, they know the products TSB sell well and have always managed to answer any questions I have asked them. Paying in cash is simple despite the branch having no counter service as a automated deposit ATM is available along with another 24hr cash machine in the lobby.

Barclays Bank

62, Bluewater Park, Upper Thames Walk, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9SQ, UK – 0345 734 5345

Usually a small queue. Friendly staff. Plenty of ATMs

Building Societies

Nationwide

7-9 Hythe St, Dartford DA1 1BE, UK – 0800 554 0673

The Nationwide website is basically fine - there are few difficulties in using it and it is generally accessible 24/7. If I had a criticism it would be that it has so many adverts on it that speed of access is sometimes reduced - as you wait for the ad to load before you reject it. While I understand the bank's enthusiasm for advertising it's products to its customers, I do occasionally think that a simple switch to block adverts that customers see repeatedly would be a good idea (as well as a good selling point!). Some of us simply want online access to our accounts with options to choose other services rather than a continuous barrage of products - many of which we have no interest in.

Dental Surgeries

Highfield Dentist Center

23 Highfield Rd, Dartford DA1 2JS, UK – 01322 225397

Best dentist in Dartford. Very polite always professional and makes you you feel at ease. I found them when I needed an emergency repost of my tooth, I was genuinely surprised at how different and nicer the whole experience was than any other dentist I had been to in the area. Keep up the good work guys.

I am a very nervous patient who in the past has had to be sedated but thanks to the kindness of everyone at this practice with special thanks to the dark haired receptionist whose name I don't know and my dentist Sarika Julka and also the kindest dental assistant I have ever met Edinah Nauru I am still nervous but am now for the first time in ten years having regular dental check ups. From the very beginning they have been nothing but kind and professional to myself, my husband Paul and our sons max and Ben. It is thanks to people like all of these that families are more likely to have good dental health. I would recommend this dentist to everyone and particularly nervous patients.

Casey D

160 Main Rd, Sutton at Hone, Dartford DA4 9HP, UK – 01322 862580

I am a regular patient at Casey Dental Care and am extremely impressed with the professional service I receive. I have had numerous appointments with Dr Casey and Maria Casey (hygienist) and I cannot praise them enough for their hard work, skills and dedication to the work they carry out. Each time I visit the surgery I know I am going to be satisfied with the service and treatment I receive. I have had a range of work conducted on my teeth, from fillings to cleaning to whitening and I cannot fault any of their work. All the other staff at the surgery, receptionists and Dental Nurses are extremely friendly and always willing to help and accommodate personal needs where necessary. I would highly recommend this surgery to anyone - the staff professional, helpful and friendly! This is a great Dental Surgery.

Photay & Associates

46 West Hill, Dartford DA1 2EU, UK – 01322 223352

Best dentist ever. Very gentle!

Very good service

Pilgrims Way Surgery (Drs Patel & Kasinathan)

Pilgrims Way, Dartford DA1 1QY, UK – 01322 279881

Firstly, can we differientiate between the two surgeries. Pilgrims Way Surgery with Dr Kasinathan & Dr Patel is based within Dartford East Health Centre (Dr Shimmins & Partners including Molly), on Pilgrims Way, Dartford. I have been a patient at both, if I was to rate DEHC I would give it 1-2 star, which is why I moved to Pilgrims Way Surgery several years ago & I couldn't be happier, hence the 5 stars. Yes they are incredibly busy, like every GP surgery but if it's urgent they will normally find a way to fit you in but mainly I can't fault the very friendly staff from Reception staff, Practice Manager, Admin Team, Nurses & GPs. I have to give a big shout out to Dr Kasinathan who is by far the best GP I've had in 40 years, he gives you time, accepts that he doesn't know everything, especially those of us with chronic health issues but mainly he listens. Brilliant team, so when reviewing make sure you're reviewing the correct surgery!

Great surgery and great practice. Doctors know what they're talking about and have helped me tremendously with my personal problems.

Dr Short

Dartford West Health Centre, Tower Rd, Dartford DA1 2HA, UK – 01322 223600

It's fine. Everything's fine.

Lowfield Medical Centre

65-67 Lowfield St, Dartford DA1 1HP, UK – 01322 224550

Lovely staff and a fantastic doctor Dr David Lawrence he has helped my family a lot

worry about my child, take it to see it and told in some words, "you waste my time comming here. its just a virus." Well.. not everybody is a doctor. Thinking to change place.

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.

A & E on a Saturday day time I thought would be a nightmare! But no. the staff were amazing, they were so friendly hard working and I felt so at ease with them. I had a number of tests in different departments and it was all so easy and there were no complications. I would highly recommend this hospital

Had a CT scan carried out today and must say I found all the staff in that department friendly, helpful and very informative. They are all a credit to DVH.

St Mary The Virgin Stone Parish Church

Church Rd, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9BE, UK – 01322 382076

I was a choir boy at st Mary's church 1946 unti1951 the Rev Dudley Brown was the vicar, we had quite a large congregation which came from the surrounding area,of course at that time the church was quite isolated which meant that the congregation had quite far to walk. i know the church is over 1700 yrs old and used to have a tall spire which I was told was lost in a fire but I have no proof of this.The last time I was at the church was in 1984 and the same happened church was locked and no vicar. it is a shame that it has become necessary to lock our beautiful old monuments but I suppose in this modern age we have to put up with it or have them vandalised even during the war the church was never locked,and nothing was ever taken except maybe time to pray, i dought I will ever see the place again but I still have very fond memories.God bless all

Beautiful photos, a shame there are no internal ones.

A To Z Waste Recyclers

Dartford rd, Dartford DA1 3EY, UK – 020 8303 1223

The owner (Ronnie) could not help with my asbestos problem. HOWEVER, he did arrange for companies that could. Thank you so much for all your help and would definitely use for any other environment waste disposal. I recommend this company as I know you won't be ripped off!!

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 Dartford

Peking Garden Restaurant

Westgate House, 5-6 Spital St, Dartford DA1 2EH, UK – 01322 226549

Great food and service. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

Best peking and Szechuan food in Kent ...by far

Royal Siam Thai Restaurant

85 Lowfield St, Dartford DA1 1HP, UK – 01322 288887

This has got to be the best Thai restaurant I have been to. The service is exceptionally good especially from the giggler . We have never had a bad meal at this restaurant , the food has some fantastic flavours. Try the jungle curry with the special noodles FANTASTIC. I have eaten and reviewed this place many times and cannot complain about a thing. Keep up the good work and we'll be back.

Food : 5/5 ! The food was excellent and freshly made! By far one of the best Thai I have had! Service: 5/5 The waitress was very good and thoughtful. Drinks: 4/5 Unfortunately I fancied coke on the night. They only have coke in large bottles so it was very flat.

Green Spice

Green Street Green Road, Darenth, Dartford DA2 8DP, UK – 01474 708428

Fantastic food and service and coincidentally the owner went to the same primary school as I did, so got a little discount too :-) The food was great, ordered Lamb Chops (Starter), Garlic / Chilli Chicken (not for the feint hearted), Chicken Shaslick and King Prawn Tandoori....the latter which was amazing; lovely red colour and very tender with a charcoal taste. I usually don't order king prawn, very expensive in most places, but I'm glad I did, by far the best dish of the night. I would definitely go back and King Prawn Tandoori is a given 😋

This place never used to have a good reputation but they have hired new chefs which has transformed the quality of their food. This was honestly one of the best Indians we had in quite some time. The Jalfrezi was amazing, the service on point. It also has a car park which is convenient.

Star Day Nursery Dartford

21 East Hill, Dartford DA1 1RX, UK – 01322 836090

Star Day Nursery - Dartford is a great family run nursery with priority on top quality care and creating a great environment for children to learn in. It is highly rated by OFSTED and supported by Kent County Council. It has recently been taken over by a forward thinking management with a passion for all things education. The Dartford branch has a great deal of attention to detail and the small touches in the various rooms and garden makes it feel like home away from home. My 4month old son loves it! The staff are also very committed and enjoy what they do on a day to day basis, displaying their passion in the creative ways for the children to learn. The proximity to the station is also fantastic as I commute into London daily. Pop in and have a chat :-)

Our Lady's Catholic Primary School

7 King Edward Ave, Dartford DA1 2HZ, UK – 01322 222759

The teachers were quite nice and caring, and the school also had a sense of community. I met a few nice people there but the school lacked challenge. I hadn't learnt anything from Yr 4 onwards. The number of assemblies were excessive (maybe even an understatement). The only music lessons I recall having were in Yr 4. The only other instrument was a recorder, which only practiced hymns for the local church. They also lacked in drama. The only time I remember practicing drama in the school was in Yr 6, practicing the end of school play (which is essentially the bare minimum). As soon as I got into secondary school, I was completely unprepared and had a tough time learning certain subjects because we had not even briefly covered them in primary school. The school maintains relatively good behaviour however. I would say that both the negatives and positives balance quite equally. That's why I rated the school 3 stars.

best school i have ever been to hi everyone its Ben Tanner keep up the good work.
