2-6 Gallowtree Gate, Leicester LE1 1DA, UK – 0345 740 4404

HSBC played me around today which I was not happy about at all. I was given wrong information twice by different staff. Been back and forth from home to branch 4 times in one day, not very pleasing. However, The Branch Manager (unfortunately forgotten his name) was extremely helpful and although my issue wasn't fully resolved his attitude and CS skills were excellent and kept me calm. It was explained to me about the wrong info given to me and was given many apologies and unexpectedly recieved some money as a compensation. Again, although my issue was not resolved, it was explained to me what actions to take next but because of the help I received from the Branch Manager and another Staff Member, I thought it was worth leaving a review. P.S - Thank you very much Branch Manager :)

quick service, staff very helpful

Very happy I chose Granville. Nice people and excellent care.

Have been going to this practice for quite a few years. Love the practice, from the moment you walk in the door you are welcomed with a smile from the lovely receptionists. The Dentists and Nurses are great too, Neil has been treating me for years and I have total confidence in his abilities. When I visit the hygienist, she is great too. I would happily recommend this practice to anyone looking for a dentist, I have even taken out the care plan there which saves me money in the long run. Thank Neil and all your team.

Carisbrooke Dental Practice

238 London Rd, Leicester LE2 1RL, UK – 0116 270 7030

In my opinion this is the best private dental practice in the UK and they have been my dentist all my life. A centre of excellence where people are referred to for their expertise also from Europe etc. Also excellent for normal routine dental work. Everyone is very friendly and nervous people put at ease. Recently they helped Taylor a friend of mine and i would like to thank everyone at the practice for all their help and in particular Drs Havinder, Jeremy, Mike, Neil Francis and Brenda, the practice manager . Julie and all the reception staff, , Many Thanks and Best regards Shelley

I am extremely pleased and satisfied with the dental treatment I received from Dr Fiona Phillips. I was explained my treatment plan clearly and felt at ease with her. I highly recommend her for the expertise and professionalism, without a doubt this is the best dental practice I have visited.

1st class treatment. My 6 year old had a small operation on her tongue and the staff were caring and kind too all of us. She was very nervous and they were considerate and put her at ease very easily. Thank you.

I have just had surgery at the this Nuffield hospital and can only praise all the staff that I came into contact with. My Pre-op assessment nurse (Sue) was very thorough but we enjoyed friendly banter as the examination continued From admission through to my leaving the hospital the following day I can only praise all the staff for the attention and care I received If all patients are treated in the same way I could think of a better place to be treated Thank you all See you soon for my next op

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Leicester

OGGI Simply Italian

161D London Rd, Leicester LE2 1EG, UK – 0116 254 5376

Lovely authentic Italian restaurant. Seated instantly and all of the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Proper Italian service too - lecturing me on my use of Italian slang, pinching the cheeks of children. If you like Italians, you will like it here.

One of my absolute favourite restaurants!!!!! The waiters are so attentive and make an effort to make your dining experience lovely. The food is AMAZING. Very reasonably priced! Would definitely recommend x


153 Granby St, Leicester LE1 6FE, UK – 0116 255 4667

Upscale Keralan restaurant with diverse food absolutely packed with flavour! The staff were very friendly and were able to help us narrow down the difficult choice of what to eat. Ended up sharing the Thali with the Kayal fish curry, both were sumptuous. We had an absolute feast for a reasonable price, would thoroughly recommend. Disclaimer: I love authentic Indian food.

Dosa!!!! Pay more and get the lamb curry. It was phenomenal. The breads are great and so different. The staff were friendly and amazingly helpful without being pushy. Will go back the next time I'm there


50 Granby St, Leicester LE1 1DH, UK – 0116 275 8303

Good food if you like spicy chicken... service took a little to long for a hour lunch break. Staff were friendly. Food was tasty.

The food was very good and well presented; the decor and general presentation was also a very good standard. The till server was very helpful. I deducted one star as there was no greeter and after some waiting I found my own seat. I could also see food backing up in the collection area with staff walking around empty handed. Some attention needed to resolve that but don't let it put you off eating.
