Dental Surgeries

Queen Square Dental Clinic

17 Queen Square, Bristol BS1 4NH, UK – 0117 927 2797

I've had a lot of dental work - it only takes one ski in a mouth! Over 40+ years there have been two outstanding dentists - one in La Jolla, California (a lady who's now retired) and the other is Alfonso. 100% recommended. Quick update (April '18): I'd also add Emily the (new to me) dental hygienist - exceptionally skilled. There are many things in life where second best is good enough... not dentistry - pay for excellence every time! The team here are truly exceptional.

I was made to feel so welcome it was as if I'd known these beautiful people for years. Their kind, warm and very calm welcome seems to rub off on you making you feel at ease and not at all nervous . Probably the best dental clinic in the country. I would highly recommend it to anyone A Carruthers

Dental Touch - Dentist in Bristol

9 Cotham Rd S, Bristol BS6 5TZ, UK – 0117 924 4440

The cutomer service and treatment I have had at Dental Touch has been faultless. Dr Vinay Borha and Jane Dimery oversaw my Smileline orthodontic treatment and I am delighted with the results. Vinay and Jane made the experience feel easy and straighforward. I would recommend them to you unreservedy. Smileline as a product is quite expensive, but the price charged at Dental Touch was actually very competitive - I obtained initial examinations and quotes from 3 other practices before I decided to go with Dental Touch. My teeth look great and I now no longer feel self conscious when I smile, which in itself is well worth the money.

Super nice, friendly and efficient.

Clare Street Dental Centre

16-24 Clare St, Bristol BS1 1YA, UK – 0117 927 5890

Excellent treatment from start to finish for a wisdom tooth extraction, and a calming presence throughout for a very nervous customer. Would thoroughly recommend.

Really lovely staff and great advice and eduction about how to keep My Teeth healthy in between visits

The IGP - Private Doctors - Bristol

Spire Hospital, The Glen, Redland Hill, Durdham Down, Bristol BS6 6UT, UK – 0345 625 2252

Fantastic experience. Professional, thorough and caring. Will definitely use again and would definitely recommend.

Fantastic service, brilliant GP care. Great admin team! Very helpful. 5*

Dr Fox

City Rd, Avon, Bristol BS2 8TX, UK – 0117 205 0198

Informative website, fast delivery and great communication. Perfect for providing medical information and medication for my Kilimanjaro hike!

Cheapest prescription meds online, very good professional service and super fast delivery, well definitely order again once my meds are running low

Dr Sarah Colthurst

67 Coronation Rd, Bristol BS3 1AS, UK – 0117 966 9724

I'd recommend Dr Hendley and Dr Adams at this surgery. They are both ask questions to help you get to the bottom of the issue and give useful advice about how to proceed, signpost to other services when necessary and give clear information about the symptoms you need to be aware of that may require require further visits. I've felt very safe in their hands and would say they are excellent GPs. I agree with other reviews in some respect and wouldn't recommend every GP at this practice.

Just moved to the area and registered here - very helpful and would recommend them

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.

Nuffield Health Bristol, The Chesterfield Hospital

3 Clifton Hill, Clifton, Bristol BS8 1BN, UK – 0117 906 4870

Had knee op. Utterly brilliant facility. If I was going to design a hospital it would be like this ! Everthing I need is planned for and provided. Feel confident about rest of stay here. Staff helpful and cheerful , nothing too much trouble. Professional and attentive.

Went for a few teeth fillings yesterday. Happy so far with the work done. The staff and the dentist were friendly and helpful. They helped me get my X-rays as well from another dentist I went to earlier. Only downside is it's a bit expensive. But will recommend to others.

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

St Mary Redcliffe Church

The Parish Office, 12 Colston Parade, Redcliffe, Bristol BS1 6RA, UK – 0117 231 0060

St. Mary Redcliffe is an Anglican parish church located in the Redcliffe district of Bristol, The church is known for the beauty of its Gothic architecture and is classed as a Grade I listed building by Historic England. It is more like a great cathedral than a Parish Church. The impressive Spire is 292 feet tall. Besides the impressive Gothic Styling, the stained glass is lovely as are the ceilings. The nave of St Mary Redcliffe is exceptional with its perfectly proportioned arches. There is a café in the undercroft. If you like architecture and Art or just want a quiet reflective place then this is for you.

Loads to see inside. Fabulous statues. You're allowed to walk everywhere, except during services of course.

Woodlands Church

Woodland Rd, Bristol BS8 2AA, UK – 0117 946 6807

This is really my home away from home! I absolutely love this place from the Praise and Worship to the Word of God, everything! Awesome just Awesome!!

Reviewing a church with an out 5 star rating system 🤔 very strange. I hope no one uses this to actually decide if they want to go or not. It's not an entertainment facility, its a place of worship.

City Church Bristol - Cotham Site

The Elmgrove Centre, Elmgrove Road, Bristol BS6 6AH, UK – 0117 924 3322

A wonderfully friendly church community. Great worship and on point sermons. Highly recommended.

Great guys. Great prices.

I have to diagree with the previous review, having used Manor for years a fair price is always paid and always better than anywhere elese i have been. Always so friendly and helpful and can never do enough. Always weighed together and agree it is accurate before agreeing the price.

These guys are super friendly & very professional. I would highly recommend them!

Chris recently helped my clearance when house selling. Very professional service, also he makes the whole experience very positive with his genuine warmth and friendliness. AND, you can drink coffee and chat to him about Voltaire while he's measuring up. How cool is that! A rare gem :) Dr Pangloss, or Andrew

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bristol

wilks Restaurant

1 - 3 Chandos Rd, Bristol BS6 6PG, UK – 0117 973 7999

Can't fault this place and has just won best restaurant in Bristol, which is thoroughly deserved. Had the tasting menu and the wine flight on my visit and the flavours complemented together really well. Staff were very well informed and explained each course as you went through. The wine waitress was equally as informed on her wines. Love coming to this place and will be back soon

I went to Wilks last night with my parents. The food, as others have said, was excellent - extremely high quality and much care and attention had been paid to each course. However, I can't help but think there are other restaurants in Bristol which I would choose over this one next time I'm looking to celebrate a special occasion. Aside from the eye-watering expense, the service was efficient although quite aloof at times. It's a very formal affair compared to other establishments in Bristol and, for me personally, I missed the more relaxed feel. It really depends on what you like from a restaurant but if you're like me and prefer to be able to hold a conversation slightly louder than a hushed whisper and don't want to feel like you're being given the once-over by fellow patrons, I'd look elsewhere.

Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill Restaurant

The Old Granary, 51 Queen Charlotte St, Bristol BS1 4HQ, UK – 0117 930 7160

Went Friday 20th April had table for 2. I had prawn cocktail for starter which was nice, husband had scallops, when plate arrived only 2 scallops expensive for what it was. Main I had smoked fish on mash with sauce & lots of greens. Too much sauce, the little mash I was given dissipated into sauce, really needed spoon to scoop up. Fish was tasty. Husband enjoyed his main. Decided not to bother with sweet. French waiter who served us, tall, slim with glasses, screwed his face up to my husband a few times he didn't think I noticed. Not a great experience.

Really fantastic food and great staff! Nothing was too much trouble and also helped with choices to accompany the fish dish I had chosen. Beautiful building. Very lovely evening overall. Definitely recommend Loch Fyne.

COSMO Bristol

30 Triangle W, Bristol BS8 1ET, UK – 0117 934 0999

Good quality for 7.2/per using student card, and child only cost 2! Even taste different dish a bit, I am very full! Love curry and most of the Chinese dish. Dessert is also good than I expected.

Came here for my fathers 60th birthday meal. We accidentally booked a table too small however the staff were very quick and helpful and added a table. We brought in a cake which they added a firework candle too for affect.. without asking!! The food was beautiful, hot and constantly fresh. Waiters and waitresses were helpful and quick. Staff all joined in to get everyone singing happy birthday. What an incredible restaurant!

Nursery and Preschools

Lantern Preschool

Redland Church Hall,, Redland Green Rd, Bristol BS6 6YE, UK – 0117 946 4699

Lantern is a brilliant preschool! Caring and committed staff combined with fantastic play equipment make for a lovely nurturing environment which both my children have loved. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great start to their children’s school journey!

Christ Church Clifton Pre School

The Crypt, Christ Church, St Brendas Court, Clifton Park, Bristol BS8 3BN, UK – 0117 325 1214

My twin girls were at Christ Church Preschool for two years until July 2015. They thrived in the warm, loving and supportive environment. I watched with joy as they would run into play; their speaking developed, their social interaction skills grew and they became confident little people. The team are wonderful and all work so hard. The recently added new red toilets, the garden at the back and the weekly forest school adventures all added to the fun. I cannot recommend the preschool more highly.

We moved from Cornwall to Clifton in April 2014 and the team at Christchurch Preschool provided so much support and community spirit in helping us settle in. They managed to accommodate our twin girls and the girls were so happy in their learning and playing. They quickly made new friends and the move was made so much easier thanks to the wonderful nurturing nature of the staff. The forest school sessions were a great asset to the preschool and with its own little garden the staff make the setting a fun and happy place to be.

Mama Bear's Day Nursery and Pre-school, Oakfield Road, Clifton

17 Oakfield Rd, Bristol BS8 2AW, UK – 0117 974 2929

Our little boy attends Mama Bears Oakfield Road and we couldn't be happier with this nursery. The team are fantastic, very caring and nurturing, imaginative and huge fans of messy play (which is great as a parent who does not enjoy messy play at home). The nursery offers wonderful outdoor space which they use all year round, a ball pool room, sensory spaces as well as individual rooms for different age groups. Our son has flourished in this environment and loves being part of this nursery community.

My daughter likes a lot this place because she met quite a lot new friends. The staff is polite and gentle with the kids and during the week I feel safe about my little princess. When I pick her after work she has hard time leaving. And if you could have seen her in the beginning - she was crying not to leave her there! Definitely a child friendly place.

Bristol Steiner School

Redland Hill House, Redland Hill, Bristol BS6 6UX, UK – 0117 933 9990

Hello Everyone at Bristol Steiner School. I am annexed to Rudolf Steiner and how he indicated awareness of the spiritual physical and natural technology. The Consciousness of the Human Soul and the Christ Mysteries. I was a pupil at St Christopher's School back in the 1970s which I found wonderful and I loved St Christopher's School. Rudolf Steiner pointed out the need for the renewal in education science art medicine and religion. I am so arrested by his lectures and the Waldorf teaching. Rudolf Steiner is in my gene and so is St Christopher's School or it was when it was Rudolf Steiner Principles based. Stephen Blasby

This is a lovely school,with wonderful long standing teachers who are dedicated to delivering a Steiner curriculum in a close nurturing environment. Three of my children have attended here and have been very happy and well educated. Two of my other children have been to 'outstanding 'ofsted graded mainstream schools and their handwriting and their depth of understanding of subject matters have never been as great as my children who attended Bristol Steiner school.
