Very good and professional service, hence I always have had excellent experience with them. Staffs are fast and efficient. I strongly recommend others to do banking with TSB instead of other banks.

Staff are helpful and insightful with most banking related requests.

Barclays Bank

17 Church Square, Oldbury B69 4DX, UK – 0345 734 5345

Maybe if people weren't so stupid they wouldn't have problems and have to leave bad reviews. Banks perfectly fine, sometimes there's a queue but Google does tell what you times are busiest. It isn't hard to look up. The staff have always been polite. My only problem so far was that one cashier said I couldn't pay money into my mother's account for her when two other cashiers said I could. Bit confusing but nothing to kick up a fuss about.

Usually have to queue.staff helpful and friendly.

A good dentist I have used this dentist for years -I don't go too often but when I do I have never had any problems with anything they have ever done with my teeth .A fantastic friendly dental practice

Shires Dental Practice

45 Three Shires Oak Rd, Smethwick B67 5BS, UK – 0121 429 5497

Dr Bahia and all the staff are always very courteous and friendly.. I was dreading taking my child of 6 for her filling as she is petrified of the dentist. I had finished getting my hygienic scale and polish and my daughter was next... only to find my daughter hiding under a chair in the treatment room as she didn't want to sit in the dentist chair.... Dr Jennings was very patient and gently persuaded her to sit in the chair in a fun manner and allowed her to look at the dentist tools and equipment to get over her fears. I was amazed to see my daughter sitting there getting her tooth repaired and actually enjoy the treatment instead of screams and tears. I Highly recommend this dental practice especially to those with children.

I had to attend, I'm very scared of operations with teeth, but here all my worries disappeared. I recommend it to everyone such as families,children, friends. Thank You so much!

Euro Dental Care

368 Court Oak Rd, Birmingham B32 2DY, UK – 0121 428 2999

I travel 30 miles to come to this dentist because they are just that good! If you're scared to go to the dentist, give these guys and girls a try. Truely the gold standard of dentistry.. If only they were all this good!

I had my teeth straighten done here,I'm really happy with results I would say all the dentists r really help full n professional they explain everything in detail and in friendly way, all other staff is externally friendly n polite too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Ridgacre House Surgery

83 Ridgacre Rd, Quinton, Birmingham B32 2TJ, UK – 0121 422 3111

Hi I have been going to the doctors surgery for more than 40 years and it gets better every year! The nurse's are top class and all the doctors are first class!! The practice has most of the new equipment at hand it's to me a first class surgery or 5 star doctors!!!

I've lived in Quinton (about 5 mins walk from the surgery) for 6 years but I've only in the last 6 months registered with this practice as I generally don't need to go and was too lazy to move over from my last place on the other side of Brum! The service so far has been excellent, phoned at 8.30am and got appointments on the day if I've needed them or scheduled for a more convenient time. The receptionists are very friendly and both doctors and the one nurse I've met so far have been amongst the most friendly and attentive I've met and they've laughed along with my self deprecating jokes (I've injured myself doing exercise quite a bit over the last year so it makes for amusing stories). I highly recommend this GP surgery.

Lapal Medical Practice

95 Goodrest Ave, Halesowen B62 0HP, UK – 0121 422 2345

Further to comments from Emma Pitt. As a patient at this practice I find all the staff excellent and feel the need to come to their defence in regards to the comments from Emma Pitt. I happened to be in the waiting room when Emma Pitt came into the surgery demanding to be seen. At no point were any of the reception staff rude or unpleasant to her or to anyone else. In these circumstances Diabetes UK advise contacting NHS 111.

My wife and I have been a patient at this practice for MANY years and have found the receptionists to be unfailingly polite and the doctors to be willing to go out of their way to be helpful and efficient. The older family doctors ask after members of my family who have now moved out of the area. When referrals are required they are made with due regard to all relevant criteria. There is friendly atmosphere in this practice and this helps a visit to Lapal Medical Practice to be a comfortable and worthwhile one.

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.

My (Muth) Mother Vera Ashfield was admitted into Leasows and spent the last 7 weeks of her life there...

If she had been a Queen she could not have been looked after any better, physically, mentally and as a human being... The care was exceptional, even too us her family... Bless you all xxx

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Oldbury

Zaalsha Indian Restaurant

22-24 Abbey Rd, Smethwick B67 5RD, UK – 0121 429 7043

Had a top notch meal - cannot believe that I've not been here before. Tuesday night was more quiet but it gets very busy on Friday and Saturday. Because you can take your own alcohol the bill is always a pleasant surprise! Highly recommended.

The only Indian Restaurant and the best in Birmingham!! Food is gorgeous, staff always are pleasant and is value for money. I rate it very highly so why not try it out?

Chilli Buffet Restaurant

999 Wolverhampton Rd, Oldbury B69 4RJ, UK – 0121 544 0000

Been here a few times in the evening, at times you have to wait for the food to be topped up and at most is at best warm not hot, there's been times when I've picked up 4 plates before I got to a 'clean' one. Staff not attentive enough and plates are slow to be collected however....we went there recently at 2 pm and the experience was much better, plenty of hot food, plates were clean and the staff were great, obviously its not as busy in the afternoon and I can say this is the best time to go, bare in mind early evening and your eating food that's been there from lunch time.

Lovely staff, lovely service, lovely food and service on drinks was very fast and overall the place itself was actually very nice inside Definitely recommend!

Great staff.. Have had issues with management on numerous occasions, however these issues have since been rectified hence why i have edited my review. my daughter loves it there thats the main thing

This nursery is amazing. The staff are one of a kind. The way they play talk sing dance and learn the children is brilliant. Both my children go and at the age of 16months my son can count to 10. That's a massive achievement for his age. I absolutely love this nursery. The owner is a lovely lady. Always willing to help and always got the time to listen. Even running 3 nurserys. If I have more children this is where I will be sending them. I have made really good friends with the other families. I recommend this nursery 100%. Well done to all the staff and the owner, keep up your hard work. It pays off in all the children. Thank you x

Harborne Primary School

Station Rd, Birmingham B17 9LU, UK – 0121 464 2705

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 5m digital planetarium experience to 90 Year 5 pupils at Harborne Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The afternoon was well organised with all groups arriving on time. The excited but well-behaved students enjoyed a rich selection of content: peering up at the planetarium night sky, visiting the International Space Station, handling a meteorite and travelling through a future colonised Solar System. Thank you Harborne Primary for a very pleasant visit.

A high achieving school with profession staff.
