People work there so friendly not even open account there . But the one in Gravesend that we had open account there there are absolutely joke not even showed their expression for caring customers .What they only said is the rule. And even their custo.ers relation head office us completely joke too. The recent I gave 3 * they should received 5 but the head office their customer services like the one in Gravesend. So I can imagination that anything's when wrong they won't look after customers at all. Very shame of head office managers . I requested for talking.g to managers in head office they said their boss busy or go holiday. Now nearly 1 months not even heard anything's. What kind of customer service is that???. If u have money need to tho ked about their customer services.

The Nationwide website is basically fine - there are few difficulties in using it and it is generally accessible 24/7. If I had a criticism it would be that it has so many adverts on it that speed of access is sometimes reduced - as you wait for the ad to load before you reject it. While I understand the bank's enthusiasm for advertising it's products to its customers, I do occasionally think that a simple switch to block adverts that customers see repeatedly would be a good idea (as well as a good selling point!). Some of us simply want online access to our accounts with options to choose other services rather than a continuous barrage of products - many of which we have no interest in.

Dental Surgeries

Smiledartford Dental Practice

69 The Brent, Dartford DA1 1YD, UK – 01322 220677

First experience with SmileDartford all I can say is it’s the best dentists I’ve been too. All their staff are very warm and helpful. Professional service, will recommend to family and friends.

A huge, huge thank you for the emergency treatment I received 02.08.2017. I was in such uncomfortable pain and had been all night and was in no way expecting to be seen so swiftly. Dr. Logue really is a fantastic dentist, not to mention a really lovely lady. I have moved to Wimbledon and I still insist on driving over to Dartford to see her. Not only am I very comfortable with her and trust her judgment, the surgery itself is brilliant. Lorraine (the receptionist) and I don't doubt she does much more than that, is also excellent, very helpful and really felt sorry for me and worked hard to get me an emergency appointment. Having recently met Olivia (Hygienist), who is also lovely – it really is a credit to Dr. Logue running a surgery that has such a family atmosphere. I would absolutely recommend Smile Dartford, it's an excellent practice.

Pilgrims Way Surgery (Drs Patel & Prang)

Pilgrims Way, Dartford DA1 1QY, UK – 01322 279881

I have always had a very professional, warm service here with Dr Shimmins and partners. The nursing staff are also a pleasure. Keep up the good work.

I think people are mixing 2 different surgery's in the same building. pilgrims way surgery is one of the best I been. Never had any problems . Normally if it's an emergency they would book me in to see paramedic on the same day no problem to call and book always picks up the phone . good receptionists . Dr Patel & Dr Kasinathan really good doctors . both doctors they are really busy so you need to book weeks in advance but understanding that they have a lot of people to look after can't blame them . but as I said they are always happy to book you in to see paramedic if its urgent . so when you write a review make sure you are in the right place

Darent Valley Hospital

I can never thank all the staff enough at Darenth valley for the amazing care they have given me. I would not be here if it wasn't for their care. A&E AMU surgical team ICU and Juniper ward staff pharmacy and physio every one treated me professionally but with kindness and compassion.

Nadine @ A&E reception was absolutely helpful and very patient. The importance of 1st impression always come from reception and staff here are absolutely wonderful. Sometime they might have a hard time with patients but there’s nothing much they can do. Overall experience was good.

Church Rd, Dartford, Greenhithe DA9 9BE, UK – 01322 382076

I was a choir boy at st Mary's church 1946 unti1951 the Rev Dudley Brown was the vicar, we had quite a large congregation which came from the surrounding area,of course at that time the church was quite isolated which meant that the congregation had quite far to walk. i know the church is over 1700 yrs old and used to have a tall spire which I was told was lost in a fire but I have no proof of this.The last time I was at the church was in 1984 and the same happened church was locked and no vicar. it is a shame that it has become necessary to lock our beautiful old monuments but I suppose in this modern age we have to put up with it or have them vandalised even during the war the church was never locked,and nothing was ever taken except maybe time to pray, i dought I will ever see the place again but I still have very fond memories.God bless all

Beautiful photos, a shame there are no internal ones.

R.S Skips Ltd

9 Great Queen St, Dartford DA1 1TJ, UK – 01322 450069

No jokes, punctual and a call before arrival the best service ever and no waste of time. Saves money. Real GEMs

Wanted to order skip exchange but did not had an opportunity as woman on the phone sounded like "you're wasting my time" with "alright?!" after every sentence. Told her to forget it. Tried to ring 0800 number but same women answered so ended up arranging collection only.Will wait extra day till skip is collected and will order with different company. LOW level arrogant customer service which I did not deserved. P.S. When this skip was delivered originally(this was third skip from same company) - driver also was arrogant and rude - said he can't drop the skip as not enough space although previous two skips where successfully dropped/picked up by same company from same spot. Once explained this to driver, he still did not dropped skip and said "call us when you be ready for us". I was about to look for different company when eventually same driver came back (4 hours later) and unloaded skip in same spot where according to him was mission impossible in the morning hours. Childish & unprofessional...

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Dartford

Royal Siam Thai Restaurant

85 Lowfield St, Dartford DA1 1HP, UK – 01322 288887

Visited with a fairly large mixed age family group and found both the food and service top notch. It was a Saturday night and busy too. The only problem was the stuck up woman sat nearby with her husband who took exception to a diminutive 88 year old woman in our party standing next to and talking to someone she hadn't seen for 45 years. So glad this woman turned her nose up, got her food put in takeaway containers and "huffed off" with her poodle husband in tow. Perhaps she should have gone somewhere more expensive and exclusive?

I normally go out dinner there and the food is great, but this time i wanted to try the lunch buffet but was a bit disappointed. Not many choices of dishes although it's value for money. The plates were cold and you already lost your appetite. The staff was more than happy to warm the plates for me although they do not normally. The food was on the salty side. It's value for money but I would not really recommend. I prefer to stick to the à la carte. Unless, there is a major change in the lunch buffet. Nevertheless, the staff was courteous, polite and ready to help.

Kent Curry

Browns Bluewater

SVL06A, Plaza Bluewater, Dartford DA9 9SG, UK – 01322 422880

Stopped in for a cocktail. Had an old fashioned and my partner has a cosmopolitan. Very well prepared and served perfectly. There is a seating area outside, although surrounded by very tall buildings it was a nice setting. Noticed there's also a nice seafood menu. We will try this next time.

Great location (with outdoor seating area), delicious food, foodie menu and fantastic service. A little more expensive than a burger joint but you pay for what you get. Here you do get value for your money.

Good nursery but a little more pricey than the others I know of.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Our Lady's Catholic Primary School

7 King Edward Ave, Dartford DA1 2HZ, UK – 01322 222759

The teachers were quite nice and caring, and the school also had a sense of community. I met a few nice people there but the school lacked challenge. I hadn't learnt anything from Yr 4 onwards. The number of assemblies were excessive (maybe even an understatement). The only music lessons I recall having were in Yr 4. The only other instrument was a recorder, which only practiced hymns for the local church. They also lacked in drama. The only time I remember practicing drama in the school was in Yr 6, practicing the end of school play (which is essentially the bare minimum). As soon as I got into secondary school, I was completely unprepared and had a tough time learning certain subjects because we had not even briefly covered them in primary school. The school maintains relatively good behaviour however. I would say that both the negatives and positives balance quite equally. That's why I rated the school 3 stars.

best school i have ever been to hi everyone its Ben Tanner keep up the good work.

Fleetdown Primary School

Lunedale Rd, Dartford DA2 6JX, UK – 01322 226891

Was an awful school, but since ms kon left, it has gone SKY HIGH

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 180 Year 1 & Year 5 pupils at Fleetdown Primary School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and found the hall prepared just as I had requested. The day 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, travelling across a future colonised Solar System and learning about the various types of stars. Thank you Fleetdown Primary for a very pleasant visit.
