Helpful service


57 High St, Christchurch BH23 1BB, UK – 0345 788 8444

Yes, it's a bank! But they have always been very good to me at NatWest and I have no complaints. This is not my local branch, but I use the business services here as this one is our area's business centre.

I always get great service from the staff and feel welcome. They have a side door access through the alley way to the pay and display car park behind.

4 Castle St, Christchurch BH23 1DU, UK – 0345 300 0000

I went in this morning to ask for some assistance with sorting out a credit card payment. I was greeted by Laura who was very helpful indeed. The issue which would have taken an eon by me on the phone if past experience is a guide, was sorted by her in less than 10 minutes. Thank you

Staff are lovely. You don't have to cue for ages. It gets done quick

Dental Surgeries

Pearl Fine Dental Care

1B, Carbery Row, Southbourne Rd, Bournemouth BH6 3QR, UK – 01202 421999

I love my dental implants! They really do look and feel like my real teeth, except even better! I was nervous about the dental work, but Dr. Gorjifar was calming and worked with me to overcome my fears. He spent time educating me about the implant surgery and what I could expect and didn't pressure me to make a decision on the spot. The staff were kind and considerate, meeting my needs all along the way. If you are missing teeth, dental implants are the way to go and Pearl Fine Dental Care is a great choice for having them done!

A very nice clinic with modern equipment and excellent service. The staff were nice and helpful, and the dentist took time to answer my questions and make sure that I understood the treatment. They were very attentive during my appointment and did their best to make sure it would be a pleasant visit for me. I will definitely go to them again. Highly recommended!

Damira Dental Studios

99 Southbourne Rd, Bournemouth BH6 3QN, UK – 01202 425616

Absolutely brilliant dentist. The desk staff are amazingly helpful, friendly and approachable. I had a check up and needed a filling and was booked in in under a week. The dentist (Team Waqas and Gyula) is friendly, hyper-efficient and the filling didn’t hurt AT ALL! (Whereas all my other fillings at other dentists have hurt at least a little).

Crescent Dental Practice

1-3 The Crescent, Bournemouth BH1 4EX, UK – 01202 392202

They have always been very good for me, very good service and care.

Thank you Mrs Blome-Becht and Assistant, fast and indolent treatment. Bettet not say to see you soon buy thank you.

Dr Richard Jenkinson

Burton Medical Centre, 123 Salisbury Rd, Burton, Christchurch BH23 7JN, UK – 01202 474311

Have been seen by Dr Jenkinson twice in the past two weeks. I am very grateful for the exemplary treatment that I have received . I am really very grateful for the all encompassing care that I have received. Thank you.

Woodlea House Surgery

1 Crantock Grove, Bournemouth BH8 0HS, UK – 01202 300903

I have been with the surgery for 8 years & have always found them to be excellent, very happy with the service

Good doctors who care about their patients and listen to them too. Can be a little frustrating getting an appointment at short notice but I think every GP surgery nationwide is under-funded which doesn't help. However, they always squeeze me in due to my chronic medical conditions, and are always helpful. Been happy to use this surgery since I moved into the area over 10 years ago.

Beaufort Road Surgery

21 Beaufort Rd, Bournemouth BH6 5AJ, UK – 01202 433081

Love this surgery, receptionists and doctors are all lovely. Don't have a bad thing to say. Wonderful. Dr Mitchell is the best doctor I've ever had!

Reception and clinical staff always polite and helpful. I've been a patient at the surgery for 13 years and have never had any issues with the service or the staff - only positive things to say.

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.

Great Hospital in fact excellent physical space of very good well kept clean efficient modern well laid out much better than sum of its counterparts in nearby towns staff superb very friendly very efficient organised really he's a very good Hospital

Very clinical here... doesn't feel like 'home' prefer Poole General Hospital has more of a homely feel to it

Christchurch Hospital

Fairmile Rd, Christchurch BH23 2JX, UK – 01202 303626

Nice hospital. Christchurch Hospital was a very large facility, but, most has been converted to flats. The remaining section is more for specialist appointments.

It is a hospital so it gets 5 stars. Hospitals are cool.

Kings Park Hospital

Gloucester Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JF, UK – 01202 303757

Thought they were excellent

I have to counter the negative comment. I am not going to say mental health services are great in this country (what-so-ever). All the cuts and society not rating mental health issues etc.. But I feel the people at CMHT Kings Park (with what they have) really do there best and i am not sure I would be here without them. I have the best psychiatrist ever (Dr Schrader) and had some great care workers that all do care..

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bournemouth

Restaurant Roots

141 Belle Vue Rd, Bournemouth BH6 3EN, UK – 01202 430005

Very good food indeed. Highly innovative and well thought out. No unnecessary gimmicks or things being served on inappropriate materials - just amazing flavour and texture combinations that really work, some of them rather surprising. Vegetarian alternatives offered for all meet dishes and those are of the same high quality. The restaurant is quite small and just offers three tasting menus for dinner, allowing to really focus on the food and it shows. Service is very good with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is definitely at Michelin star level and service almost there - but the price is not so you get amazing value for money. Reservations highly recommended as the place is, understandably, very popular.

Fantastic little neighbourhood restaurant serving food to Michelin star quality but without the price tag to match. Booking essential at a weekend, but also open most evenings in the week. Fabulous and unexpected flavours - a must if in Bournemouth

Joy Southbourne

129 Seabourne Rd, Bournemouth BH5 2HG, UK – 01202 431166

The Best Indian Food since moving down south.. Excellent food, beautiful presentation, great service and value. Recommended to anyone.. Don’t miss this gem

Been twice now. And love it. Food is fabulous n staff are amazing. They make you so welcome. If you want a friendly atmosphere then joy is the place to go.

Pizza Express

73 High St, Christchurch BH23 1AS, UK – 01202 486771

I really like Pizza Express. I go there almost every Friday because I can use my O2 voucher which allow me to pay only £5 for a main course. My favourite dish is the Nicosie salad (in the picture). It's full of flavour, healthy and very filling. The atmosphere is always nice and the Staff is lovely.

Nice pizza. Howeverit took ages for the food to come. Starters were served before the drinks. If use 02 Priority check how you use the voutcher! Nice friendly waitress. Situated in a good area with a good menu!

Nursery and Preschools

Three Bears Pre-School

St. Georges Church Hall, Jumpers Road, Christchurch BH23 2JR, UK – 01202 496163

Family run nursery for preschool children. Friendly people and look after the kids well.

St Saviour's Pre School

32 Colemore Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6RZ, UK – 07719 403482

The team that run this PreSchool are amazing. They supported my little one with settling in and throughout his preschool journey. They allowed him to be an individual and celebrated his differences. The team is very caring, enthusiastic and professional. The team remained the same for the 2 years we were there, creating a safe and familiar environment for little ones to grown. There was a real team atmosphere and you felt like they really cared about your child.

This Pre-school is amazing, the staff are so warm and caring and they really do care about all the children. You feel like a person, not just a number. A real family environment. My little boy loves it there and has really blossomed.

All three of my sons went to Barbara Rose. I would highly recommend this group.
