Banks

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.

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.

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

Smiledartford Dental Practice

69 The Brent, Dartford DA1 1YD, UK – 01322 220677

Extremely good care. Very polite staff. I'm so impressed. I definitely recommend.

A huge, huge thank you for the emergency treatment I received 02.08.2017. I was in such uncomfortable pain and had been all night and was in no way expecting to be seen so swiftly. Dr. Logue really is a fantastic dentist, not to mention a really lovely lady. I have moved to Wimbledon and I still insist on driving over to Dartford to see her. Not only am I very comfortable with her and trust her judgment, the surgery itself is brilliant. Lorraine (the receptionist) and I don't doubt she does much more than that, is also excellent, very helpful and really felt sorry for me and worked hard to get me an emergency appointment. Having recently met Olivia (Hygienist), who is also lovely – it really is a credit to Dr. Logue running a surgery that has such a family atmosphere. I would absolutely recommend Smile Dartford, it's an excellent practice.

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.

Photay & Associates

69 Lowfield St, Dartford DA1 1HP, UK – 01322 224555

A very friendly, helpful little practice. The staff team are professional, courteous and display an interest in each patient. The dental treatment is thorough and where necessary, in my case work re. implants, referral is made to their other practice nearby for a more specialised review. The area surrounding the practice has been neglected due to the negligence of Tesco not proceeding with their promised investment but do not be put off by this. The practice continues to provide a very good standard with regard to dental health. Surprisingly, they are still able to provide some NHS treatment, something I haven't been able to access since childhood!

Horsmans Place Surgery

Horsmans Place Instone Road, Dartford DA1 2JP, UK – 01322 299790

Dr B S Shora

Maple Practice, Dartford West Health Centre, Tower Rd, Dartford DA1 2HA, UK – 01322 220594

Have been with this surgery for more than 24 years excellent caring will always fit you in for an appointment would recommend to all

Been under this surgery for over 20 years with Dr Shora excellent surgery and execellent staff would never go anywhere else

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.

R.S Skips Ltd

9 Great Queen St, Dartford DA1 1TJ, UK – 01322 450069

Wanted to order skip exchange but did not had an opportunity as woman on the phone sounded like "you're wasting my time" with "alright?!" after every sentence. Told her to forget it. Tried to ring 0800 number but same women answered so ended up arranging collection only.Will wait extra day till skip is collected and will order with different company. LOW level arrogant customer service which I did not deserved. P.S. When this skip was delivered originally(this was third skip from same company) - driver also was arrogant and rude - said he can't drop the skip as not enough space although previous two skips where successfully dropped/picked up by same company from same spot. Once explained this to driver, he still did not dropped skip and said "call us when you be ready for us". I was about to look for different company when eventually same driver came back (4 hours later) and unloaded skip in same spot where according to him was mission impossible in the morning hours. Childish & unprofessional...

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Dartford

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill Restaurant

West Village, Bluewater Pkwy, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9SE, UK – 01322 623930

We had lunch for two today, service was very slow, restaurant was very short staffed so we had to wait to be seated as tables were not cleared. Once seated we had to wait a long time for our food. The food was good but that gets forgotten when service is slow.

We visited the restaurant to sample the new menu. The choice was limited but that was expected. There were many different choices from fish, meat and vegetarian, so we weren't disappointed. The staff were excellent, the food impeccable and the whole evening was a pleasure.

Wahaca Bluewater

The Plaza, Bluewater, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9SG, UK – 01322 380211

Ate here tonight and was blown away. Food was amazing; wasn't sure what to go for, as the Sweet Potato Taquito was out (given that it's AMAZING I'm not surprised!) and our awesome waitress Eni offered some really good suggestions. All the food I had was incredible, the tequila wasn't bad too!😉 Really, really great vibe and food, with lovely sraff. (Particularly Eni, really lovely lady and will definitely be going back in equal part due to the amazing food & Eni's great service!) Thanks!

We often eat here when we come to Bluewater and so far have not been disappointed. The food is generally delicious and fairly priced but don't expect large portions as it's more in the style of tapas than meat and two veg.

Pizza Express

Bluewater Pkwy, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9SE, UK – 01322 427526

My daughter had a fantastic pizza making party. Thank you to all the staff for an amazing and fun experience.

Quick service and great variety on the menu. Even my picky daughter liked everything on the kids menu. Definitely would recommend to anyone.

25-25a Essex Rd, Dartford DA1 2AU, UK – 01322 289662

Both my Children have been here, although only one is there now as the eldest now goes to school, and they both love going here. The staff are actually awesome and really care for each and every child. There are a couple of nice outside areas (one of which is being extended) for the kids to play in and when ever I got to drop off or collect my children and all the others are having the time of their life. I am sure every parent worries about putting their children into day nursery but I can 100% say that staff here will look after you children, help them develop and have a lot of fun on the way.

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 180 Year 1 & Year 5 pupils at Fleetdown Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The day was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, travelling across a future colonised Solar System and learning about the various types of stars. Thank you Fleetdown Primary for a very pleasant visit.
