Banks

TSB Bank

9 Manchester St, Luton LU1 2QB, UK – 01582 457070

Customer service, excellent. So much better since being split from Lloyds Bank. Had been a customer of TSB before them joining with Lloyds. It's good to see they've kept their original values in customer and community support

Not too many customers, staff also not very keen to interact with customers.

Lloyds Bank

60 George St, Luton LU1 2BB, UK – 0345 300 0000

Me and my partner today we was witnessing an excellent service provided by this Lloyd’s brunch. i would like to highlight Mr Charles he is excellent star of this branch. in one word, He is a absolutely perfection of the retail banking and “costumer service” meaning. Thank You Attila and Andrea

Dental Surgeries

Vogue Dental Care

260-262 Crawley Green Rd, Luton LU2 0SJ, UK – 01582 432181

I've recently finished my C-Fast braces treatment at Vogue & couldn't be happier with the results! I've always been very nervous when it comes to the Dentist but from the first consultation Dr Rhishi Patel made me feel so at ease & comfortable. All the nursing / reception staff are lovely & friendly. I cannot recommend Vogue Dental Care enough!

Called at 8.30 in the morning as I had chipped a tooth at the weekend. Fitted me in that afternoon and at 3.45 I'm home with it replaced looking better than it did before. Excellent, professional service and a no nonsense approach to dentistry (which is a rarity)

Luton House Dental Practice

61 George St, Luton LU1 2AL, UK – 01582 485426

My Gran needed an emergency dentist after falling and breaking two teeth. This practice was suggested by 111 helpline. We phoned on Saturday and they gave us an appointment the next day. She was seen by a dentist who was also qualified as maxillofacial expert so he was able to fully asses her facial injuries as well as providing two temp fillings. My Gran felt so much better after her visit to this practice and we wanted to leave a positive review.

Had serious nerve pain and was in need of emergency treatment. Luton house dental practice managed to get me an appointment within two hours, absolutely great service and did a quality job. Everyone is so helpful and kind.

Village Dental Practice

632 Hitchin Rd, Luton LU2 7UG, UK – 01582 400282

We are only part way through a course of treatment but I just had to say what excellent treatment we have received so far. I say “we” because it is my mum in law who required the treatment but because she was so scared at the thought of going to the dentist, I have gone along with her. The receptionist I spoke to on the phone initially was very understanding and reassuring when I explained Mum in law’s fear. We were given an appointment within a week and again the receptionists were all very helpful and friendly. I was allowed to go with Mum in to the surgery and so saw, first hand, the excellent treatment she received. The dentist, Sharon, and her dental nurse, Sandra, could not have been kinder. Very gentle, unhurried, reassuring and explaining clearly everything that was happening. The outcome of that visit was that Mum needed three extractions. That took place this morning, only one week later. Obviously Mum was extremely nervous before the appointment but once again, Sharon and Sandra could not have been kinder. They treated my mum as if she was their own mum, very attentive and aware of her fears, but giving excellent treatment at the same time. The ultimate compliment from Mum was that if she had known what the experience was going to be like, she wouldn’t have waited so long to go! She is so relieved to have finally taken a step that she knew she should have done long ago. As a result, she now feels able to go regularly without any of her previous fear. Thank you so much to all the staff at this practice. You have literally changed my Mum’s quality of life!

Very good practice. Always a warm welcoming from the receptionists. Having had a fear of dentists due to bad experiences in the past, your practice has definitely restored my faith in dentists. The staff behind the desk reassured me and put me at ease. I saw the lovely Sharan and she was ever so gentle with me throughout the treatment and also very patient with me and explained everything in great detail. I cannot thank Sharan and your practice enough!

Dr. T Verity - Caddington Doctors Surgery

33 Manor Rd, Caddington, Luton LU1 4EE, UK – 01582 725673

I would like to thank Dr Luckhurst personally for my last visit to the surgery was for an issue of chest pain, breathlessness and asthma review. Dr Luckhurst was understanding and very helpful, she went through all the issues I had and more, this was an emergency appointment at the end of the day and Dr Luckhurst spent more time with me than she had with her busy schedule and her designated timeslots. Dr Luckhurst reviewed my Asthma medicines, discuss some personal issues, investigated and wrote a hand written letter to the L&D Hospital requesting an appointment to resolve a reoccurring hernia. I would like to thank Dr Luckhurst for being so accommodating as my life schedule is very busy and I don't attend the surgery very often and imposed her with many more issues that I should have done. Thank you Regards Roger Morgan

Dr T Abubacker - Bellhouse Medical Centre

163 Dunstable Rd, Luton LU1 1BW, UK – 0844 387 8123

I have been a patient at this practice since the early 80's, at first a patient of the lovely Dr Stanton who has long left the practice I have always received the highest standard of care and would not dream of changing to another doctor. Yes it can sometimes be difficult to getting the exact appointment to fit in with a busy life but they always offer emergency same day appointments. The receptionists on the whole are lovely and helpful and I have only ever had issues with one of them over the way I was spoken to; I did explain to my GP exactly what I wasn't happy with and she promised to investigate. As an ex NHS employee I felt it was important to do this.

Excellent Dr Campbell and Dr Abubacker

The Ashcroft Practice

49 Ashcroft Rd, Luton LU2 9AU, UK – 01582 391831

My whole family are with this surgery and have always been looked after from easily accessible appointments through to prescriptions at short notice. Thank you Dr Bath and team!

Thr doctors are great and pay attention to your health issues and address them where needed. However following a visit to the nurse one morning I felt there was a cold attitude and the nurse kept waving everything off as being normal with no further information or any sign of actually wanting to help. This was a very disappointing visit as normally they are quite nice.

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.

Thornhill Clinic, 1 Thornhill Rd, Luton LU4 8EY, UK – 01582 561999

Very professional, expert staff. Explaining all the procedures very well and obviously very caring about their patients. Appointment was easy to book with friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Thank you for carrying out a simple procedure, which i probably wouldn't have been able to get done via the National Health Service.

5 stars all the way .. I'm very satisfied with my experience at this clinic. Had my op under local and was very nervous. The super high standard of the staff and doctors mad me feel at ease . the advice and after care was amazing if you need a op this is the place to go.

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

St Mary's Church

Church Office, Church St, Luton LU1 3JF, UK – 01582 721867

Really old church with wonderful features, full of history. Peaceful place to.pray and meditate

Grandly presented with flint design externally, this magnificent church building, on the site of an earlier church, is dated from 12th century, though mostly from 14th and 15th centuries. Cardinal Wolsey and Royalty were church patrons - which accounts for some features in the church such as the very unusual baptistery (stonework creation around the font). I found the church office team very welcoming and kind - they provide access to the church when it's closed (you'll probably need to sign in and enter through their office). The church is about 5 minutes walk from the railway station and close to the shopping centre.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

8 Cutenhoe Rd, Luton LU1 3ND, UK

Lovely environment for Worship. This church welcomes everyone.

Nice church. Family friendly.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Luton

Jimmy's Restaurants

37 George St, Luton LU1 2TL, UK – 01582 451171

We spent approx 2 hrs in here. Saturday night. 6.30-8pm. Wine is expensive, so be careful as it bumps up the bill. Been here a few times now. Always been good. People are nice and friendly enough. Was surprised as we went at dinner time so paid £15.99 each for food. Over the time we were there we could only have a small amount of Korma or Rogan Josh as far as Indian curry goes as the other servers were empty and not refilled. Only a tiny bit of rice available and that was egg fried. I don't know what was happening as it was more like the choice at lunchtime. I heard a few people asking after rice but none appeared. The pizza and spicy garlic chicken was amazing as always and the puddings kept the kids happy.

Had a nice christmas meal there. Service was great, food was good. Enjoyable!

Nakorn Thai Restaurant

45 Wellington St, Luton LU1 2QH, UK – 01582 481554

One of my favourite restaurants. Great Thai food. It’s always busy when I go, because the food is so good. There’s always at least one birthday group celebrating so there’s a good atmosphere. The staff are very obliging. My friend asked for another chocolate mint (that came with the coffee) and he brought us out the box!

Friendly staff and great food! Good for groups, big and small. I came by myself so I was only able have one dish, the duck. If I had the chance, I would go back to try more dishes

Wernher Restaurant

The Mansion House, Beech Tree Dr, Luton Hoo Estate, Luton LU1 3TQ, UK – 01582 698888

Expected slightly better service, waited a while to get first drinks. Excellent greetings at the front of house from the car park to the front lobby. Food superb, wine well priced, just thought the service should be a bit more responsive.

Very nice and authentic setting, professional and friendly staff. Ideal for a romantic evening out. On of the tastiest good I had.

Sending my daughter to nursery and so far so good. Very helpful and accomodating staff. It is a little on the small side however in the process of applying for a larger premises. Fees on the other hand are steep but perhaps not if you consider the subsidy for a public school per child. I truly wish them the best in all regards inshallah.

Alhamdulillah very good school
