I would recommend my branch (and TSB in general) to anyone.

Dental Surgeries

SCA Trafalgar Dental Practice Portsmouth

1-3a London Rd, Portsmouth PO2 0BQ, UK – 023 9266 5877

Quite Frankly I am astonished that some have given 1 star ratings but each person is entitled to there own opinions. However with my experience of this dentist so far I am highly impressed. Customer service: 5 I have never received rude or snobbish behaviour from any of the staff here, on the contrary. If you are polite and courteous with them they will reciprocate freely. I could not rate you any higher for the helpfulness. Dentistry: 5 I would like to thank the new dentist Kate for her highly professional and friendly attitude. As always my experience with the dentist is always a positive one. Really incredible work and attitude Location/Hygiene: 5 This is a very convenient location near 2 large car parks and on bus routes with regular timings The The dental surgery is clean and hygienic even with some music on it really helps you feel comfortable for the appointment ahead. Thanks so much for the great work you do!!

Dr Pritesh Bhatt is the only dentist I trust. I no longer live in Portsmouth but travel to this dentist because of him. He is honest and I have never had any treatment which I felt was unnecsessary.

mydentist, Kingston Crescent, Portsmouth

33 Kingston Cres, Portsmouth PO2 8AA, UK – 023 9266 7317

Flo the dentist is amazing. The only issue I've had is that my treatment has taken so long to be done.

Lake Road Dental Practice

Lake Road Practice, Nutfield Pl, Portsmouth PO1 4JT, UK – 023 9282 6117

This is a general practise so is not just a dental practice but also doctors and other NHS amenities. Hearing aid batteries can be issued. Very helpful staff.

Great help

Trafalgar Medical Group Practice

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

Over the last few months myself, my daughter and my grandson have all received excellent service from doctors and staff at both Eastney and Osbourne surgeries. In particular, quick action by Dr Singh meant that my grandson received excellent and timely treatment for his perforated appendix at QA.

Waverley Road Surgery

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

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.

I wouldn't be here without these people. From the receptionist to the doctors.

The Devonshire Practice

262 Devonshire Ave, Portsmouth, Southsea PO4 9EH, UK – 023 9273 1358

Very sincere, dedicated and thorough GPs

Devonshire practice always strive to do their best. Staff are friendly. Doctors do their best and I've always been happy with their service in an environment where there is so much pressure on them. Well done!

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.

Saint James Hospital

Locksway Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO4 8LD, UK – 023 9268 5000

This was my father's work place for years the late Dr Bale .as a child spend a lot of time there it has really beautiful grounds with big willow trees . conkers you find there are amazing .I was christen at the chapel and my father married there to x I loved the spiny round doors x

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.

St Mary's NHS Treatment Centre

Milton Rd, Portsmouth PO3 6DW, UK – 0333 200 1822

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 !

Good service considering it was a busy Sunday morning. My fractured arm was diagnosed, x-rayed and sorted within 3 hours for free. Thanks to the expert team there. Much appreciated.

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.

Good for coffee and tea, breakfast sandwich for those who are on low income.

Love my church

ChristCentral Church

23 Queen St, Portsmouth PO1 3HN, UK – 023 9320 0184

Very welcoming, biblically based and gospel focussed church!

I found Solent when I came back to Portsmouth after finishing uni. It's made up of a great bunch of people and I now count some of them as my closest friends. Students, 20s/30s and young families make up the bulk of attendees but there are some awesome older folk also. Worship is lively and modern and the teaching is Bible-based. The church is a part of the New Frontiers family so if you're familiar with Terry Virgo et al you'll know the sort of theology underpinning Solent. Solent also has worship and teaching influences from Bethel, Soul Survivor and a host of other groups. It's a nice mix :)

St Mary's Church

Fratton Rd, Portsmouth PO1 5PA, UK – 023 9282 2687

H&S Metals

Prospect Road, Portsmouth PO1 4QS, UK – 023 9275 5900

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 £5 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 £5 express surcharge without full contact so thank you kindly!

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

Best bike service place in Portsmouth, staff always happy to help!

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

Nemrut Restaurant

94 Albert Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 2SN, UK – 023 9275 6777

I love going to this restaurant. The food is always good and the staff are friendly and efficient. You can see the food being cooked, so this makes for a memorable evening. It is a small restaurant, so booking is a must! It is busy given lots of repeat customers!

Small and friendly restaurant. Food is cooked on charcoal at the front of the premises. Good value and good food.

Bodrum Restaurant

165-167 Albert Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO4 0JW, UK – 023 9282 9707

Great food and fairly decent drink options. Everything is fair prices. I'm gluten free and they were very accommodating with a large selection of food gf sadly the chips and rice sides are not, but then kindly did some chips in the oven to go with my meal. They also do takeout options too. Very impressed and can't wait to visit again

A nice relaxed place to eat. The menu is vast but for large parties or for those unsure what to pick there are some good set menus. The decor is rustic and the traditional music was a little on the loud side. One of the pluses of this restaurant is the charcoal grill which makes the meat delicious, however it does mean that your clothes smell a little afterwards The main problem was the speed of service for our large group but of you are going as a couple I don't think that would be a problem.

Montparnasse

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

Fabulous food and exceptional service with attention to detail from the whole team! 12 of us celebrated my mother’s 70th birthday here. Food is exceptional and well worth it! I totally recommend this restaurant for anything from a quiet evening meal to celebrating in their function room. The food was fabulous! Enough said! Cooked to like and perfection! You wont be disappointed!!!!

Great food, great selection of wine. Lovely atmosphere. If you book a table for more than 7 you can sometimes get the whole top area to yourself!

Nursery and Preschools

Little Bears Forest Preschool

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

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 could’ve taken my older son to Little Bears at that age too, so that he could’ve had the same experience.

Primary and Secondary Schools

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.

The best school in town, I can't imagine my boys being in any other school. It's a very nurturing school with very supportive staff. Thank you

Fantastic school in the heart of Southsea. We have three children in the school and all are extremely happy with the education that they're receiving.

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.
