Very polite, no queue - i'll come again!

Promoting self service banking. Good service.

Good bank but only accessible during working hours apart from Saturdays, need to take time off work to go in


13 Parliament St, North Yorkshire, York YO1 8RS, UK – 0345 740 4404

I always had good experience in this branch. I am sorry for some who didn't. Sadly though bankers want to act as masters rather than service for customers and industry. This branch is good though. Act like human rather than a machine 😁

The staff were so much more helpful than any other bank I've been to in York. As opposed to a week wait to get an appointment, I could see someone on the spot. All questions answered and were able to help instead of put up barriers. Thanks guys!

Dental Surgeries

Clock House Dental

95 Heworth Village, York YO31 1AN, UK – 01904 422918

Went today with my son after he fell off his bike and broke his 2 front teeth. Very pleased with receptionist who was able to give me a private appointment within 3 days of phoning. My nhs dentist offered me one 6 weeks later. Dentist Mr Khan was very helpful, has done a great job remodelling his teeth. Very friendly, efficient service. Definitely recommend this practice.

A bit disappointing as two appointments were cancelled with no advise. Had to take time off work just to be told that either the system was down or that my appointment disappeared off the system. This was disappointing as had to arrange with work to take time off and then spend money to get an expensive uber to go back to work. Apart from that the dentist and his team were great, always explaining, giving advise and keeping me at ease at all times. Definitely would see the dentist again, but would be worried they will mess up the appointments again.

Hopkins & Poyner

29 High Petergate, York YO1 7HP, UK – 01904 623582

Very good bedside manner, pleasant staff, clean & welcoming surgery, ala in all, very happy

Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio

25 Blossom St, York YO24 1AQ, UK – 01904 654889

We’ve been coming here for a few years as a family. James is great with the boys and passionate about dentistry. I had to have emergency treatment at one stage and they were so helpful. The reception staff are friendly and hygenist very good. If you leave a message when the phone is busy, they are good at calling you back. A great family dentist!

My family have been patients at this dental practice since 1996 and it is testimony to the length of time we have used it to show how lovely and friendly the staff are. Our dental surgeon even welcomes us on first name terms and explains everything in a calm and professional manner what treatment needs to be done. Top practice and top staff.

York Medical Group at Monkgate

35 Monkgate, York YO31 7PB, UK – 01904 206862

The care provided is generally of an excellent quality, the doctors and nurses are professional and caring and exhibit real empathy for their patients. The quality of medical care is however let down by disinterested and sometimes even rude reception staff who make calling the surgery unpleasant at times, utilise online booking to avoid reception staff.

Rawcliffe Surgery

1 Belcombe Way, York YO30 6ND, UK – 01904 654228

Been my local surgery for years. When you call up you can usually get an appointment next day (not 3 weeks like my wife's local surgery). Staff are helpful and sympathetic, receptionists are pleasant and don't try to be doctors - come on you know what I mean ;) So, in my opinion, the best surgery in York.

Stonegate Medical Clinic

23 Stonegate, York YO1 8AW, UK – 01904 631815

It's a shame the NHS can't care for patients in this way: efficiently, with genuine interest in the patient, and with overall health the goal. Highly recommend.

I have used Stonegate Medical Practice on three separate occasions and I have never failed to be impressed by the professional standard and service offered by a dedicated team professionals.

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.

Nuffield Health York Hospital

Haxby Rd, York YO31 8TA, UK – 01904 715000

I cannot rate this hospital highly enough. The cardiologists I've seen have been absolutely amazing. Dr Gupta is one of the nicest, kindest, best doctors I have ever met and he spends so much time really helping you and understanding what the problem is. He is a remarkable person. Dr Hayes also recently arranged a stress test for me and was very kind and accommodating with me, arranging for me to have the test then come straight over to Nuffield with the results so we could go over them before he went on leave as he knew I was suffering from severe anxiety. I very much appreciated his help and both doctors have been fab at arranging test for me when needed. I recently requested copies of my medical records from Nuffield and the lady that dealt with it was incredibly efficient and helpful but I can't remember her name :( Whenever I come to clinic, the lady upstairs on reception always greets me with a friendly smile which is appreciated as I'm sometimes very stressed when I come in. All the nurses are friendly and approachable. It is a lovely atmosphere in the hospital so it doesn't really feel like a hospital. Follow up letters to my gp has always been quick and I don't believe I've ever had to wait even a week for an appintment. I would strongly recommend to have cardiology services here, they have helped me immensely over the last few years.

The aftercare I received following my knee operation was absolutely appalling, I was informed to "check on the internet" because the surgeon neglected to inform me of the what he had actually done to my knee and whether I was to use crutches or not. I left the hospital with no stick or crutches, holding onto my friend's arm and the wall, in tears and pain, in order to leave the hospital. Except for the receptionist no-one came to my assistance! Having said that, once I was actually seen by a physio therapist, the care, imparting of knowledge and management of my progress has been outstanding.

York Hospital

Wigginton Rd, York YO31 8HE, UK – 01904 631313

We cannot fault the N.H.S and EVERY MEMBER OF STAFF at this hospital who took care and treated my husband after falling and breaking his leg. You have all been AMAZING! Your dedication, patience, kindness, consideration and the hard work you do - under a lot of pressure is truly appreciated by this very elderly couple. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH !!

This hospital is an excellent hospital with great staff, they are always keen to help and show genuine care and compassion. Of course you will always encounter the odd person who could do better but overwhelmingly as a whole unit the hospital and all who work there are excellent. As with all hospitals parking is expensive but at least in this case it’s plentiful. If you’re visiting a child on paediatrics then they’ll validate your ticket so you can park free.

York Cardiology

8 Haxby Rd, Greenfields, York YO31 8LA, UK – 01904 500957

Dr. Gupta, is highly knowledgable and so VERY informative. A truly caring individual. Blown away by his kindness and care. Felt so much better after speaking with him. I cannot speak highly enough of his consultation.

Doctor Gupta explained what my condition was after 12 years of not knowing and when he explained it to me it made perfect sense, over 100 doctors did not know what was wrong with me but he did. I am now on the road to recovery with his treatment plan. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you

Come and experience a worshipful and lively community. Guy Fawkes was baptised here. And Jesus is alive here today.

I were after directions to the church and got them quite easy

Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate

Goodramgate, York YO1 7LF, UK – 01904 613451

The York Viking Market was located here this year, and likely will be next year. A very sweet building, with its painted glass windows, the enclosed pews and aura of times past. Loved it!

Definitely worth taking the time and trouble to seek this out. This is a beautiful old church, totally hidden from view. You would never chance upon it accidentally unless you're exploring the snickleways.

St Wilfrid's Catholic Church

5 Duncombe Pl, York YO1 7ED, UK – 01904 624767

A wonderfull place for quite reflection and contemplation. A beautiful old Catholic Church. Remember it is a house of god and devotion so please respect its purpose.

Extremely moving to walk into the narthex of this church in the shadow of the Minster and read the list of names of English martyrs. Nearby is the shrine of St. Margaret Clitherow. "In all thy works remember thy last end, and thou shalt never sin." Sirach 7:40

York Recycling Service

32 New Building, Murton Way, York YO19 5UW, UK – 01757 282550

Possibly the best and friendliest company I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. Very helpful, not pushy and prompt too. Cannot recommend them enough. Shame more companies couldn't be like this one! A big 5 stars indeed!

I've used York Recycling Service twice and it was such a huge help. Its such a great way to get rid of cardboard after moves or large trips to IKEA. Highly recommended!

St Nicks - Nature Reserve & Environment Centre

57 Rawdon Ave, York YO10 3ST, UK – 01904 411821

Can't get enough of this place, a green oasis teeming with life, a massive asset to a great city and a fantastic bunch of people working there. I've seen loads of finches, beetles, and a few water voles, but the kingfisher still eludes me!

Nice place, great work in the community

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Heslington

The Park Restaurant

3 St Peter's Grove, York YO30 6AQ, UK – 01904 540903

This is a fantastic venue for celebrating a special occasion. We went here for my birthday, the staff are welcoming and friendly. Nothing too much trouble. Drinks and food presented are amazing. This really is a fine dining restaurant. If you do decide to go, splash out and have the wine experience with the meal. The wines were matched brilliantly and we never felt rushed while dining there. I'll definitely will be back again.

We had the new three course Saturday lunch menu, with the wine package. I wondered if the lunch menu would be on a par with the 7 course evening menu, and was not disappointed Adam Jackson and the Park staff continue to deliver the best dining experience in York. The service was impeccable, the food was simply fantastic and the wine choices were inspired. If you have an opportunity to come here I highly recommend it.

Melton's Restaurant

7 Scarcroft Rd, York YO23 1ND, UK – 01904 634341

5/5 still isn't high enough. Incredible food and service for a very reasonable price. Easily the best meal I've ever had. You know a main course is good when you're genuinely sad it's over. Extensive wine list is superbly priced also. If I had to recommend one place in England to visit it would be here.

Have eaten here several times so had no qualms about having our 50th wedding anniversary celebration here.Without exception all present thought the food excellent.

Le Cochon Aveugle

37 Walmgate, York YO1 9TX, UK – 01904 640222

Had an absolutely brilliant evening here. The setting, the service, the staff and of course the food made this a really lovely surprise night out. The staff could not be more courteous, and so friendly, they were knowledgeable and helpful for suggestions of wine etc. The food was amazing, we are still talking about it 2 weeks later. I can't wait to go again, and next time we're going to sit at the kitchen station and watch the food being prepared and get a chance to listen to Josh.

The restaurant was marked as one of the best spots in York. Definitely it is an original one because the menu can’t be chosen or even seen before served. Quality of the food is good but not fantastic which is what you expect in a restaurant like that. Friendly staff. Slightly pricey.

Nursery and Preschools

St Paul's Nursery School

York Montessori Nursery Fulford

33 Hospital Fields Road, Fulford, York YO10 4DZ, UK – 01904 642666

Really great with the kids. Very caring.

Clifton Day Nursery

5 Sutton Way, York YO30 6JF, UK – 01904 674000

My daughter has attended Clifton Day Nursery since she was 9 months old and she has thrived in the small caring nursery. We often comment that it is like her second home and she is so happy and content there. There is a real sense of love and care and the team strive to help the children play and learn. The large secure garden is brilliant and messy, natural play is positively encouraged. The early years foundation is covered effectively but this is balanced well with time to play and be a child. If you want a small and relaxed environment for your child to grow into a happy and confident person then this is the place.

Such a lovely nursery, both our children have gone here and flourished. Even after moving to the other side of York, we still continue to use this nursery. A more loving, caring and personal nursery you will not find. Clifton Day Nursery really deserves to be recognised for the work they do. They are Fantastic!!

All Saints RC School

Mill Mount Lane, York YO24 1BJ, UK – 01904 647877

Has a great, nice and friendly Sixthform. The teachers are always there to help out when ever you need , the school is very open, well managed and organised !! Enjoyed studying here~

Wonderful teachers with a great sixth form, well respected school that performs well

Fulford School

Fulfordgate, Fulford, York YO10 4FY, UK – 01904 633300

Very good school, teacher have very close relationships with the pupils.

Was a wonderful school in my days, photography was my main subject

Public & Preparatory Schools

Bootham School

49-57 Bootham, York YO30 7BU, UK – 01904 623261

As parents we find Bootham School brimming with many qualities, there is a calming atmosphere punctuated with a strong sense of purpose,- forming a perfect baseline to facilitate learning and self confidence. "Adventurous & Liberating" is the School mantra. Our two children have made some wonderful friends and from starting Bootham in year seven, have never looked back. The teaching staff are supportive and motivating. The activities after 1600 hrs add another dimension to the learning and development of children, giving them a taste of things they (and we) would probably never think of in the fast paced world in which we live. Finally, the food is consistently of the highest quality and the children (& us on Saturdays),look forward to every meal !

As a former pupil, I cannot sing their praises high enough. I came from a school (St Olaves) where I was bullied for many years. I was generally miserable and had low self confidence. Bootham brought me out of that shell. The teachers were all lovely, I may not have liked every subject, but i still liked the teachers. The ethos and attitude of staff and pupils quickly formed me into a totally different more caring person. I was much happier, my grades rose and I joined as many after school activities as I could. At my previous school I never wanted to stay longer than I had to. At Bootham I never wanted to leave. School lunches were also amazing, In the 7 years since I left I have tried to keep my home food as varied and healthy as the lunches I got at school. Friends and family love the food I make and I still don't think it is as good as my school food was. I wasn't the only pupil to go to Bootham after being bullied, I think it attracts a lot of kids who are kind and bright but have been stifled through adverse experiences. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is more introverted and wants to develop in a caring and protective environment which still prepares you for the world ahead. My friends and employers have commented on how kind and hard working I am. These are qualities I am certain I formed during my time at Bootham. In the sixth form they give you more freedom and if staff think you are capable they stop spoon feeding information. Deferring to guiding your own research. This was a invaluable skill when it came to university.

York Steiner School

25 Fulford Cross, York YO10 4PB, UK – 01904 654983

Not just a school, but a community. From birth (Gentle Beginnings), through the toddler years (Parent & Child Groups), pre-school (Kindergarten) to the Main School (age 6 - 14) York Steiner School offers a nurturing environment and a rounded education. Highly recommended.

Best school ever.

The Minster School

Minster Yard, York YO1 7JB, UK – 0844 939 0000

Please note this a review for the architecture of the building (as it is currently an independent preparatory school); anyway, the Gothic architecture of the building is beautiful.

Best school ever... I will always have the fondest of memories and the largest amount of respect for this school - a great working enviroment with fantastic results and a warm community.
