Pleasant enough staff but always big queues. Always push you to use machines rather than humans, moving towards a robot society. TSB is right opposite, a far better option when it comes to banking.

Very helpful stuff, excellent customer service!

Dental Surgeries

Edinburgh Dental

59 Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1ST, UK – 0131 667 4433

Dentists, or having dental treatment, has never been something I look forward to, like most people, but I had an extraction today, and have to say it was the least distressing experience of visiting dentists for over 60 years! Quite frankly it was excellent - I have to go back for more; I won't say I'm excited, but I'm certainly not fearful. Thank you all.

Highly recommended, being a very nervous patient the reassurance and care I received was excellent. Thanks to the receptionist, dentist and medical staff for your care.

Southside Dental Care

125 Mayfield Rd, Edinburgh EH9 3AJ, UK – 0131 667 5656

Have had a great experience with Southside. Leanne has helped me maintain my teeth to avoid more fillings as had some issues after pregnancy. Friendly and empathetic she has guided me through treatments I have needed and ensured I was pain free throughout. Leanne also prescribed a toothpaste which has really helped my sensitivity. On my last visit Leanne recommended the hygienist who has been really helpful in guiding me on extra cleaning of my teeth and I’ve had better teeth each visit because of this. Great service!

I have always had very thorough and conscientious dental check ups with Leanne. Hygienist cleans are refreshingly detailed and never feel rushed. Until recently I have never had any issues with my teeth but thank goodness I have a dentist who is proactive and attentive. My dentist spotted a routine x-ray didn't look right and caught the early signs of my tooth failing. I was talked through all the options and costs so felt informed to chose the right treatment for me. Impressively quick appointments (I travel lots with work). Without such attentive care I could have lost my tooth. Thoroughly recommend Southside Dental, in fact, they are now our family dentist, no higher praise!

Barbour Dental Care

39 Mayfield Gardens, Edinburgh EH9 2BX, UK – 0131 668 1521

I have been a patient here for 30 years and have always found the staff here to be very pleasant, professional and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending this practice to anyone looking for dental services.

I have been a patient of Dr Barbours for many years and have no hesitation recommending anyone who is looking for first class treatment and dental advice to use this practice. With friendly professional staff and first class facilities it is an excellent dental surgery.

Inchpark Surgery

always lovely. super doctors


Southern Medical Group

322 Gilmerton Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7PR, UK – 0131 664 2148

Very happy with this place. All of the doctors and nurses that i have seen have been very friendly. I need regular blood tests and they are excellent at drawing blood. Never a long wait at appointment and quick and easy to get refills. Very happy with this GP.

Cannot disagree more with a couple of these posts here! Seriously, would you rather see a Doctor or worry about the decor? I have been with this surgery a long time and have never had cause for complaint, the staff from the receptionists to nurses and the doctors have never been anything but friendly and professional at all times! Perhaps a couple of the reviewers should change to a new practice that is newly built where the staff have the time away from other patients to hold their hand? Check out the other surgeries in your area and their ratings and that will bring you back down to earth!

Gracemount Medical Practice

24 Gracemount Dr, Edinburgh EH16 6RN, UK – 0131 664 2377

Don't listen to these bad reviews. Yesterday needed an urgent appointment, after 4 tries got through and had an appointment at nine. Needed a repeat last minute appointment today too and again got through after a few tries. Treatment from the GPs on both days was brilliant so we'll done and thank you. Only downside is finding a parking space as the car park is shared by a gym. You just need to be patient and you'll get one.

Pros: Staff are excellent and very friendly. I've never had an issue with them and always helpful. Cons: Appointment system isn't the finest. I'm informed that there are early appointments bookable in advance some days by some doctors from 7am. Aimed at people that work, but seem to get filled by older people that (I can't confirm) don't work. Must be the only doctors you can't book an appointment for more than 1 day in advance for everything else. So need to stand outside at 7.45am or get thumb and neck ache pressing redial by phone, to have to redial the next day.

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.

Spire Shawfair Park Hospital Edinburgh

10 Easter Shawfair, Edinburgh, Danderhall, Dalkeith EH22 1FE, UK – 0131 654 5600

The hospital is lovely, the rooms spacious and comfortable. The staff were exceptional, especially the nurse looking after me after my operation. I was in a lot of pain and she made me feel so comfortable and at ease and showed genuine concern, and kept chasing up more meds for me. The toilet was a little dusty but I was in and out in a day so not too big a deal. 100% recommend this hospital.

Saw Mr Robinson yesterday very helpfull professional staff down side of location travelling time by bus from the city centre

Fantastic care to patients


Royal Infirmary Edinburgh

51 Little France Cres, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, UK – 0131 536 1000

Have to praise the staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. From the moment mum was taken in on Monday, the care and attention she received was outstanding. Particularly the nurses of base 4 in the Acute Medical unit. Those girls were awesome. They made a difficult week much easier to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole family was looked after and mum got the best care possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are xx ❤

Couldn't be more happier with the care i received from the Royal this morning. I had a check up to see if everything was okay and Cathy one of the student nurses was so helpful and very efficient. Very friendly. All the best with your future. Xx

Came here with my family for a 70th birthday lunch. A great time had by everyone. Excellent food and service as always, thanks Beijing Banquet, we'll be back again soon.

The best family place I know. We are here almost every month and every time we are happy with the way the food is prepared. Over last five years we found that Staff is always friendly and the place is always clean. Highly recommended. Better then some other buffet place's

Edinburgh Food Studio

158 Dalkeith Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5DX, UK – 0131 258 0758

Amazing concept and very charming and professional service. We enjoyed an impressive menu made of Scottish ingredients, every course introduced by the owner and head chef Ben Reade. Wine pairing was spot on with outstanding, carefully selected wines from small producers. An evening to remember, not only because of the unique atmosphere but also because of the perfectly prepared and plated dishes of outstanding quality.

Probably the most exciting restaurant in Edinburgh right now, an ever changing tasting menu at the cutting edge of food, with a shifting roster of incredible guest chefs. The attention to detail and quality is exceptional, and the food is always special and interesting, without being overly theatrical. The atmosphere is one of collective anticipation of the good things to come, and the delight of being able to geek out about what you've eaten with the people who prepared it. This is food prepared by people who love food, and want to share their excitement about new things - unique and wonderful.

Nursery and Preschools

St Margarets Nursery

10 Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh EH16 5NE, UK – 0131 667 0778

I have worked at St Margarets for several years and love working there. The staff are great and we all work well as a team. The large garden is amazing and the children thrive outside as well as inside. The job is demanding but very rewarding and I have formed very good bonds with the children and the parents 💕

St Margaret’s Nursery is a brilliant place to work I have been there nearly 2 years. I am part of an amazing team and they have helped me grow in confidence. I’m about to start my SVQ Level 4 management have been really supportive and encouraging me to take the next step to work towards level 4. I love working in the baby room and seeing them grow and progress I definitely recommend this nursery.

Good solid school

Liberton High School

328 Gilmerton Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7PT, UK – 0131 664 7514

As a student at LHS I don't understand the bad reviews it's not a bad high school yeah it has a bad reputation but it's still a not a bad school. Edit: it’s a good school, polite students mostly. I’m moving into my final year of the school have been at the school since S1, can say some bad things about it but not a lot. Yes some students are rude but not all. All we want is are school to have people give it a try, that’s all. Over all I’m just saying take the review from a student not a parent who has a child in this school. Thank you 🙂

Liberton is a good school. It may have it's faults like other schools., but it has some of the finest pupils and teachers, that I have had the honor to know.
