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.

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

Pilgrims Way Surgery (Drs Patel & Kasinathan)

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

I think people are mixing 2 different surgery's in the same building. pilgrims way surgery is one of the best I been. Never had any problems . Normally if it's an emergency they would book me in to see paramedic on the same day no problem to call and book always picks up the phone . good receptionists . Dr Patel & Dr Kasinathan really good doctors . both doctors they are really busy so you need to book weeks in advance but understanding that they have a lot of people to look after can't blame them . but as I said they are always happy to book you in to see paramedic if its urgent . so when you write a review make sure you are in the right place

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!

Darent Valley Hospital

Darenth Wood Rd, Dartford DA2 8DA, UK – 01322 428100

Five star for me. Taken to A+E with renal colic (kidney stones). Was in theatre within four hours due to both kidneys being blocked. Had five more stays which were all excellent and the ward staff loved a bit of banter. Special thanks to Dr Anjum, saved my kidney and has become someone that I would call a friend. Great hospital, food could be better, but wasn’t too bad. People need to remember, the nhs is at breaking point and the doctors and staff should be given a lot more respect as their doing the best they can.

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

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

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...

We've been here a few times and the food is always good. One special occasion, I had the Sea Bass. I received the whole fish baked to perfection! Unfortunately, I couldn't do justice to the accompaniments, there was just so much on the platter. It was delicious.

The inside design is lovely. I didn't like the waitress. She barely could understand what we are asking. Food was tasty. Big plates

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 :-)

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.

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.
