NatWest Bank

778 Fishponds Rd, Bristol BS16 3TX, UK – 0345 788 8444

Staff are super friendly and helpful but there is only three counters for what seems like a very busy branch. Also their computer systems seem to crash a lot. Cash, cheque and coin deposit machines available. They have a coin counter machine that gives you a paper receipt that you have to get in the queue with. You can make appointments and pre order change bags online to speed things up.

Long queues. Not enough counters. However staff is very friendly and they do whatever they can to make you feel comfortable and help you out. They have self service machines for depositing cash and do daily banking however not very private. It is very small inside. I have seen people queuing outside the bank some times. But as I say it is not the fault of the staff but bank policy to cut the staff and customers have to suffer

Dental Surgeries

Frenchay Dental Practice and Implant Centre

Beckspool Rd, Avon, Bristol BS16 1NU, UK – 0117 956 7603

I have used Frenchay Dental Practice since moving to Bristol about 5 years ago. The service is very professional and friendly. Having helped me with a couple of existing problems that I had, I was able to discuss some treatments that I had long been considering. These conversations gave me the confidence to move forward with the treatment and I've never looked back. I'm more than happy to recommend the dentist, orthodontist and hygienist. Keep up the good work.

I visited a number of dentists in order to get a brace fitted to straighten my teeth. Frenchay dental practice was the only place that made me feel confident they would do a good job, and they have not let me down! I am so happy weith my teeth now and fee so much more confident. Service with a smile we have now moved as a family to use their services in full going forward.

Phoenix Dental - Staple Hill

38 Victoria St, Bristol BS16 5JS, UK – 0117 957 0146

As a new patient I found them helpful and friendly and the premises were new and very clean. The dentist's explanation of what was needed to be done was excellent.

Friendly staff and easy to get an appointment

Centre for Dentistry

Fox Den Road, East Filton, Inside Sainsbury's, Stoke Gifford, Bristol BS34 8SS, UK – 0117 259 1002

Service received at my check up with Eugene was great as usual. Detailed explanation of my x-rays was great along with a comparison with the last lot. Always recommend as appoinment times are so convenient I don't have to miss work and use my annual leave for appointments. Reception staff are also very patient and accommodating when it comes to my requests to reschedule appointments.

I haven’t been to the dentist in a while as get quite anxious about going. I have to say I was over the moon with the service and all the detailed explanation of X-ray and basic dental care that other dentists don’t really mention. I was seen by Charles Blanchard. He was fantastic, best dentist I have been to and made me feel at ease. He is an absolute credit to the profession. I’m no longer dreading my next appointment! Thank you so much

Dr J Matthies - The Orchard Medical Centre

MacDonald Walk, Avon, Bristol BS15 8NJ, UK – 0117 980 5100

Fishponds Family Practice

39 Beechwood Rd, Bristol BS16 3TD, UK – 0117 908 2365

Excellent practice. Very efficiently managed and very easy to make appointments. Receptionists very helpful and overall a very good practice. Easy to obtain prescriptions. GP I saw very open and helpful. Would recommend this practice.

An amazing practice. I have been with them for more than 40 years and would never change. Doctors and nurses are so caring. Receptionists do a great job under very stressful conditions.

The Willow Surgery

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Emersons Green

The Lock Up

182 Church Rd, Bristol BS5 9HX, UK – 0117 329 0707

Never had a bad meal here! We've been loads and have enjoyed it every time. I'd recommend booking to save disappointment as it's always busy. Staff are amazing, food is a delight and the atmosphere is just right. We're so grateful to have this little gem of a place to go to!!

Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants I've ever visited. I've been about 5 or 6 times now and am never disappointed! The food is delicious, I really recommend the steak, it's cooked to perfection. Great selection of wines and cocktails, incredible food and friendly staff, what more could you ask for!

Everyday Thai Restaurant

11 New Station Rd, Bristol BS16 3RP, UK – 0117 965 7007

Thank you for accommodating 9 of us last minute. Set menu B was delicious. Portions are generous. All the sauces are home made. The starters prawn toast, battered prawn, chicken satay were wonderful and fresh. The crispy duck pancakes were exquisite. Service was attentive and always with a smile. Highly rate this place will come again.

Starters (Starter Trio) were delicious, accompanied by selection of sauces. Main meals (Prawn Pad Thai and Tamarind Duck with broccoli) were even better. Tamarind duck was super soft, falling apart in your mouth, perfectly steamed broccoli (softer than fresh but still slightly crunchy) all with a rather rich sauce perfect for dipping. Pad Thai arrived in a generous but not too big portion. Prawns were fresh and so was everything on the plate - full of flavour. We have also ordered Thai Iced Tea, although very tasty it was VERY sweet. However, I've had mine and half of my girlfriends anyway 😊. Everyday Thai has amazing staff, welcoming, helpful, and extremely polite! I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone, and I will definitely be coming back here soon. It's a good idea to book your table in advance as the restaurant was full when we arrived and stay like that throughout the 2 hours that we have been there. Forgot to add; prices are reasonable. You'll be getting very good food for the amount of money you're paying and you definitely won't be hungry!

The Burger Joint

773 Fishponds Rd, Bristol BS16 3BS, UK – 0117 965 7690

Never let me down when me and my partner have fancied a great burger! Honestly one of my favourite burger restaurants of all time. Delicious food and great staff, also the music playlist is the best.

On a crisp Friday lunchtime in mid April I arrived at the Burger Joint along with a party of 3 others and was positively greeted at the door by a friendly server. I was impressed with the stylish red decor and welcoming feel of the restaurant. The prices that are drawn out are fair and match up to the quality of food I received however the menu was complicated and took me a while to get my head around. Instead of a set menu Burger Joint offers a ‘create your own’ menu in which you can choose from a selection of cuts of meat, toppings and sides. With so many different options available I was overwhelmed by the vast amount of flavour combinations before my eyes. After some considerable time designing my own burger the wait time was admirable and left a perfect amount of time to catch up with those around me whilst not becoming too omnivorous. The atmosphere of the place was chilled and stylish and the burgers were delicious with amicable fries and salad. On the whole a great experience with only the stress of having to design the burger yourself the only downfall; a set menu would have been preferable.

Mama Bear's Day Nursery, Downend Pre-school

Great nursery, with really friendly and helpful staff - Mollie will miss you all at the toddler unit but is looking forward to her adventure up to the "big nursery"! :)

Warmley Pre School

20 Deanery Rd, Bristol BS15 4NB, UK – 07951 309201

My first child went to Warmley preschool and she loves it. She loves it more on the days where she stays lunch club as she gets to eat with the teachers, and that is something she loves. My second child used to cry when her sister was at preschool and would try to get in with the other children. Now she is allowed in, its like she is getting the best thing ever every day. The staff are friendly and informative, they engage with parents which makes you feel part of the preschool. Its lovely when you get a chance to go in and have a play with the children. I'm more than happy with the preschool.

My 2 children go here and love it. Great staff and fantastic preparation for school

King's Oak Academy

Brook Rd, Kingswood, Bristol BS15 4JT, UK – 0117 992 7127

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 5m digital planetarium experience to 60 Year 1 pupils at King's Oak Academy Primary (The Acorn). I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The morning was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, handling a meteorite, learning about different round space shapes and flying through the rings of Saturn. Thank you King's Oak Academy Primary for a very pleasant visit.

I made lots of new friends and it's a good school but the teachers don't really listen and the headmaster don't really do any thing just wants to make a laugh and every one be happy but the teachers don't really teach any thing and their is a lot of trouble in that school most boys but if you have a troubled child that needs help in school don't go their you will get bullied I'll give it a 3 out of 5
