Dental Surgeries

MediKa Dental

175 Devonshire Ave, Portsmouth, Southsea PO4 9ED, UK – 023 9273 2047

The dentists are very professional and their skills are exquisite. I have visited a number of dentists within Portsmouth and I can confirm to anyone who reads this review that this dental practice is equipped with very capable dentists who are by far the most exceptional in dealing with serious dental issues. Highly recommend as long as they fire one of the receptionists.

High quality practice..Understanding and caring..Bit of a wait sometimes.

Lighthouse Dental Practice

19 Clarendon Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 2ED, UK – 023 9282 2740

I had several extractions over 2 weeks. I couldn't fault the Dentist or nurses, explained everything as it was happening, made sure it was comfortable and were just generally very caring. Even took time to talk to me after the procedure when i was concerned something wasn't quite right. Amazing team

โ€œWhat a wonderful example of outstanding customer service and patient care!โ€ I have never been a fan of dentists and after my last experience at a previous dentist I was very nervous at the thought of having any treatment, filled me with dread as I am not a good patient. After several phone calls to several dentists in the area I was given an appointment the next day. I was greeted by Dona who is extremely welcoming and put me at ease straight away. She also happily chatted to me whilst I was waiting which was not for very long as with all my appointments I was seen straight away. Dr Mohamed was brilliant even down to the injection which did not hurt and this for me is the most terrifying part of going to dentists. I am now delighted with my gleaming pain free teeth. I just wish I had this type of service twenty years ago then I would not have neglected my teeth so much. I have now booked an appointment for a check up in 6 months time which is something I have never done in the past. All the staff at Gowers Dental surgery have treated me with great kindness and excellent customer care.

mydentist, Chichester Road, Copnor

310 Chichester Rd, Portsmouth PO2 0AS, UK – 023 9266 2517

Happpy with their service. Very clean environment, the receptionists as well as the dental professionals are both very friendly & helpful. It's been quite a long time since we've joined as a family for our dental health care & they're doing a fine job, especially with young kids.

Before going to this dental practice I was always nervous and panicked abit as have had bad experiences in the past. They are really lovely and patient and stop when I feel any pain..such lovely dentists and it's now like a doctors appt. Thank you. P.s the receptionists are great too as so bubbly and friendly. I would definatly recommend this practice.. P.s just added to this as had my first crown..still feels weird trying to eat but so so happy!!! Thank you dentist lady Fiona.. (This lady has just been out to bosnia to treat all the kids that have been in pain with their teeth for years!! We take too much for granted in this country and are so lucky)!!

Trafalgar Medical Group Practice

25 Osborne Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3LR, UK – 023 9282 1371

The practice has become busier and it can is hard to get through on the phone and make advance appointments. HOWEVER my family and I have always been seen on the day quickly and efficiently when needed. The surgery now has a good system where you can message a doctor on their website which works well and a doctor will always phone you when needed. Face time is not always required which saves time all round. They have always been extremely kind and professional and gone to lengths to treat us. I would particularly like to praise Dr H Smith, Dr Price and Dr Singh.

Waverley Road Surgery

34-36 Waverley Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 2PW, UK – 023 9282 8281

The doctors are helpful and patient. It is very hard to get an appointment whithin a two week period and the walk in surgery often has large queues at the door first thing in the morning with wait times up to and around 2 hours.

I had been poorly for over a week. Rather than bother the surgery, I tried Paracetamol and Ibuprofen but I wasn't getting better. Having spoken to the surgery, the advice given was to come to the walk-in surgery rather than wait for over 2 weeks for an appointment. After being poorly for a week, I was so glad to be seeing a doctor. Sadly, the whole experience was most unpleasant. Having read the review from Tracy, who visited the walk-in on the same morning it seems that we have both been treated badly.

The Surgery

3 Aylward St, Portsmouth PO1 3DU, UK – 023 9281 2033

Have been a patient here for over 10 years. Reccomend so highly that I recently brought my wife and son over too which they accommodated. Other surgeries seem to struggle with demand but I always feel like here I am valued and appointments are made much quicker. Professional staff working in a high pressure environment. Have seen a few doctors change but my level of care has remained consistent.

I've found the staff to be polite and efficient.

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.

I had to use there facilitys and found that the treatment i recived was second to none! The buildings might be old and dated but so would you be if you was born in the late 1800 (Hundreds) also the food there is prepaired on the site and not any of that in- ported rubish that most hospitals use nowerdays lol 199% best hospital i have visited or used.

Saint Mary's Community Health Campus

Milton Rd, Portsmouth PO3 6AD, UK – 0300 123 6610

I visited the dermalogical department yesterday and also 6 months ago. The doctor and nurses there are absolutely fabulous. So caring professional and made me feel like I could totally rely on them. Thank you so very much for your help.

There's a ER for minor injuries and illnesses running from 9 to 9 everyday. Better than a trip to QA. The only problem it's that not always there's a GP, only nurses. The midwife service in the campus it's excellent.

St Mary's NHS Treatment Centre

Milton Rd, Portsmouth PO3 6DW, UK – 0333 321 8277

Having seen three and a half hours waiting times for my grandson previously. My wife and I arrived at 7:15 for a 7:30 opening, receptionist was pleasant and helpful as was the triage nurse. We got to see the medical professional quickly after, who carried out a thorough, professional examination in a very attentive manner. However this person was NOT a doctor (GP) and admitted that there was NO GP available even though one was supposed to be on. What a total waste of a fantastic facility, we were advised to go to QA hospital or the after hours GP service at night. I can assure you that had I waited three and a half hours and had not encountered helpful and pleasant staff this review would have been a whole lot different. Building & Facilities 5* - Staff 5* Management Mad !

I love to worship here and to meet with friendly people.

During my time in England I've always enjoyed beeing at this church.

St Jude's Church

Kent Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3EL, UK – 023 9275 0442

An active church with an impressive range of outreach projects. I have personal experience with the Friday Fridge (horribly appropriate in recent weather) and having previously been in danger of homelessness myself, I respect the community of this church who work for the dispossessed, all the more. The leadership team seeks to minister to and reflect the cultural diversity of the parish.

A Friendly Anglican Church for all types of people. I attended the 18.30 service, which is slightly more informal than the other two and I find it enjoyable and focused on God.

Portsmouth Seventh Day Adventist Church

131A Chichester Rd, Portsmouth PO2 0AQ, UK

We visited this church from Essex. Enjoyed an amazing interactive youth day last Sabbath. The theme was reckless love. There was lovely singing, numerous musicians playing together, group prayer for the youths. May God bless the youths of this church as they place their hands in His arms as He lead them to all-around success. Let no man despise tour youth. Stand strong and brave for Jesus and seek first the kingdom of Heaven and all other things will be added unto you. We we catered for with sweet fellowship and lunch at the Joseph's residence. A lovely couple with a handsome prince called Joshua. Glory to God for His children all around the world. Weeping may endure for r a night but joy comes in the morning.

Lovely church and friendly people of God.

Excellent service as always from these guys. Had more stuff than I thought, that I needed removing. They took it all away for me, which was a great help. I can recommend them to anyone, and I'm sure I'll be using them again in the future too. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

Called them up in the morning to get rid of house waste. They managed to fit me in on a busy Saturday with no problem. The job was done quickly and professionally. They even got rid of extra waste without hesitation and for the same price as earlier quoted. Thanks for the help!

H&S Metals

Fast enough to take it ect so was best pleased with this outcome but when promised a payment into my account by 5pm latest (while incurring a ยฃ5 charge for this privilege!) I have yet to see anything in my account.(14th) *Edit* Have had the full amount paid into my account (15th) including a refund of the ยฃ5 express surcharge without full contact so thank you kindly!

I confirm what the previous reviewer said. Welcoming, friendly service. Quick and efficient too.

Bicycle Recycling

Unit 1 Ark Royal House, Winston Churchill Ave, Portsmouth PO1 2GF, UK – 023 9281 4967

Impeccable quality of work completed in a short timeframe, the ride on my bike feels brand new. All reasonably priced too!

Bought a bike from there with some accessories. The staff was really friendly, eager to help me and answer my questions. Would definitely recommend.

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 Southsea

Becketts Southsea

11 Bellevue Terrace, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3AT, UK – 023 9286 5000

Fab place. Very nice friendly staff. Lovely & modern inside, with great background music played via sonos sound system throughout & including the restrooms. I liked it that the menu was small but a great choice. The food here was lovely & the choice of cheese on the cheese board was superb. Would recommend trying this place out for a nice Sunday lunch.

a great chilled sunday was spent here. It looks nothing from the outside but when you walk in its buzzing. Excellent roasts executed perfectly. Nice decor, friendly staff, chilled sounds, excellent food. A nice little find. We will be back!


103 Palmerston Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3PS, UK – 023 9281 6754

The best restaurant in the region, let alone the city. The food is exceptional with a great wine list. The staff are very friendly and helpful with a warm welcome from the proprietor. Unfortunately, we don't visit quite as often as we'd like but the consistency of the whole experience remains excellent throughout the years. Thoroughly recommended.

Food is excellent but a little bit overpriced in my opinion. Beer is ยฃ5 for a small glass. Small glass of coke ยฃ3. This coke was flat and I reckon it came from a larger bottle, not even a slice of lemon. Small tea or coffee ยฃ3.95. 3 course meal ยฃ43

Algarve's Grill

48 Osborne Rd Southsea, Portsmouth PO5 3LT, UK – 023 9307 6062

Been here many times. The food and staff are excellent. Go early for 5 tapas n bottle of wine for ยฃ25 excellent value. The main dishes also well priced and always very good.

One of my favourite places. Busy and buzzing in the evening and great for leisurely lunch and chat over coffee during the day. A great and friendly place.

Nursery and Preschools

Little Bears Forest Preschool

Shore Ave, Portsmouth PO4 8NB, UK – 07544 112751

Visited with a College student, the student and I welcomed by all the staff. The children were happy and stimulated with indoor and outdoor activities.Nurturing environment and if my son was pre school age again I would want him to attend. Fantastic experience, thank you.

My daughter attended Little Bears until she started school in September. I cannot express what a wonderful time my daughter had and how much she loved the staff, she had the best experience I could have wished for. The children are loved and nurtured so much, which was what I wanted most for my daughter, plus she got to play outside and get muddy every day! I only wish I couldโ€™ve taken my older son to Little Bears at that age too, so that he couldโ€™ve had the same experience.

Fernhurst Junior School

It's a fabulous school, they teach you all the things you need to learn for future SATS and if a child does not get something, they always work with the child !! It's a fantastic school, I am in year 6 in this school and they've given me confidence to achieve higher and to move on to the next things in life This school is phenomenal !! I really think that you should send your child here because, there is also unforgettable experiences ( trips ) . Thank you all the teachers there, it's an amazing school ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

I go to that school and It is amazing! I like Mrs C.Scott, Mr S. Harrison and Miss C. King. The school dinners are lovely and I wish I wasn't leaving not this September but next September :(

Milton Park Primary School

Eastney Rd, Portsmouth PO4 8ET, UK – 023 9273 3792

My son love this school! The teachers are very kindly, direct and attentive.

A really good school with a focus firmly on The kids. They are not fancy but the head teacher and team obviously have a very good handle on things. I had reservations before enrolling my child to the school, but they have all been resolved and my mind put at rest. 1 year in I am so far very pleased with the results.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Portsmouth High School (GDST)

25 Kent Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 3EQ, UK – 023 9282 6714

We have only been attending this school for a very short time, but in that time I can seen a significant positive change in my daughter. She has got her energy and enthusiasm for school back and that is down to the wonderful knowledgeable and inspirational staff, fantastic facilities and great opportunities at PHS. I would highly recommend and if I could, would give it more than 5 stars!

Our involvement with PHS goes back 11 years during which time all three of our daughters have attended. I can honestly say that the school is first class and has offered my girls fantastic opportunities. We were attracted to the small class sizes which means girls receive more attention than they would elsewhere. An all girl school means they don't have the added distraction of a mixed environment. Our girls have been very happy and formed long lasting friendships and to top it off exam results are best in the area - what more could you ask for.
