4 The Downs, Altrincham WA14 2PY, UK – 0161 941 2501

I have used this bank for many years and on the whole they have given me excellent service. The branch had been let down by poor support from head office with lack of the investment and staff reductions. However, the branch staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

Had to do a transaction to a Greek bank account today in euros and didnt have a clue! Cloe was very helpful with dealing with this and other things. A credit to your branch. Top marks.

Very useful branch. Very helpful. Great to have somewhere local with a personal touch and local knowledge. It's great that somewhere like this is still kept open for local and passing people in these times when everything is being centralised and farmed out abroad. A useful asset to Timperley PLEASE KEEP IT OPEN!!!

Local Chambers of Commerce for WA14 4AJ. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Roberts House, 80 Manchester Rd, Altrincham WA14 4PU, UK – 0843 487 1844

The walk-in centre staff are very helpful and friendly, never had any issues. The only thing I would ask to be improved is the 'Universal Credit' phone line. In the past, I've felt that the male workers who answer the phone are a little more understanding when it comes to rearranging appointments. The women I find can sometimes be accusatory, sometimes demanding why you can't attend the appointments. The other issue I have with the phone line is waiting over 15-20 minutes sometimes half an hour before I can get through to somebody. Other than that, everything is as it should be.

Great staff, especially Mike. Really helpful.

Sinderland Road Household Waste Recycling Centre

Woodhouse Lane, off Sinderland Road, Altrincham WA14 5TB, UK – 0161 928 6995

This is the ONLY dentist I will consult. Mr Flattery cares about his patients. He makes sure that each one is relaxed and clearly understands what treatment is to be carried out. To complete his team is an efficient, but very caring practice manager. Highly recommended.

Great dentist. Lovely staff and the dentist I saw really explained things well. Will definitely be back! Thanks

Greenwood Dental Practice

Fantastic dental practice! So child friendly couldn't ask for a better practice. Honestly wish I could get myself in there! Thank you for being so helpful and amazing with my two year old, she's still talking about her trip to the dentist and the lovely lady she saw!

This is a very friendly and very efficient Dental practice. I have always found their services excellent. Their staff are very friendly whilst very professional. Highly recommended.

Westwood Dr C

Timperley Health Centre/169 Grove La, Timperley, Altrincham WA15 6PH, UK – 0161 980 3751

Exceptional GP surgery providing wonderful Patient care. It is always very easy to get an appointment and I always feel listened to by both doctors and all staff at the surgery. Would not want to be registered with any other doctor.

Kind, understanding and effective at treating my needs. I have found both Dr Colin and Dr Helen a credit to the practice at Timperley Health Centre. It makes me sad to read negative comments about these two excellent Doctors. The NHS is very near breaking point and people will insist on abusing the system and knocking the staff who work tirelessly in it. We will all be sorry if/when it is privatised because there is no more money!

The Village Surgery

Grove La, Timperley, Altrincham WA15 6PH, UK – 0161 903 9010

Always been ready to listen and do his best for you.

Park Medical Practice Drs Barlow and Guest

119 Park Rd, Timperley, Altrincham WA15 6QQ, UK – 0161 973 3485

Saw a bad review for this practice so I had to redress the balance! Have needed several appointments here over last few years for my family and myself and the service is always excellent. They have genuinely always seen us very quickly, sometimes even same day. Always seems quiet and well run. Lovely building. I have a problem reconciling this great surgery with the ones you hear about elsewhere where you have to wait days or even weeks for an appointment! So far I recommend this practice highly.

Dr Guest actually spends time with you. Really listens to you and understands. Down to earth with a lovely 'bedside' manner. Can't speak highly enough of him and the staff. Always friendly and helpful.

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.

Had a good experience visiting the Eye clinic for tests. Efficient processes, friendly professional staff who explained fully each procedure & a clean modern environment. Excellent NHS hospital.

Called at 6pm with a badly sprained ankle which was taking a while to heal. Within 45 minutes I had seen a nurse, had an x-ray and then seen the nurse again. Excellent service.

The Priory Hospital Altrincham

Rappax Rd, Hale, Altrincham WA15 0NU, UK – 0161 904 0050

Saved my life. Awesome consultant and staff.

I can only speak as an outpatient, but I have only good thinks to say about my experiences. My consultant has been excellent with regards to considering and talking through my treatment options in a pragmatic way, and has been extremely good about following up or being available at short notice if I needed to speak with him. The whole experience has been very good, with both the secretarial and receptionist staff being extremely effective and helpful. I am truly grateful for the great care I have received.

Holy Cross Church in the Parish of Timperley

97 Park Rd, Timperley, Altrincham WA15 6QG, UK – 0161 980 4330

I moved to the Timperley recently, after living in Spain for 10 years. I didn't know anything about the churches in this area, so I looked on the Internet, and decided to give Holy Cross Church a try. I was made very welcome as soon as I arrived, and as I had come alone, it was lovely to be greeted so warmly. The church has a mixed congregation, and it was lovely to see young children, as well as people of my age. After only a few weeks, I already feel part of the church family, and look forward to both the worship, and the fellowship!

Extremely welcoming and friendly church.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Altrincham

Borage Restaurant

7 Vale View, Vale, Vicarage Ln, Bowdon WA14 3BD, UK – 0161 929 4775

Popped in for lunch, having had a strong recommendation from a friend. He raved about it being fantastic food, friendly and decent value. He was right. He took home extra portions of desert. If we'd not eaten so well across the 3 courses, we'd have done the same. We had great food, really well presented. It would be great anywhere and certainly stands out in the area, which given the competition in hale and altrincham is saying something.

Fresh ingredients, homemade, absolutely lovely food. Small restaurant, booking recommended. Fine dining but casual at the same time.

Mhariam Restaurant

2 Goose Green, Altrincham WA14 1DW, UK – 0161 904 0777

Great food, friendly staff and the bonus of bringing your own booze !

Good meal and there is a bargain booze a few doors down where you can buy your drinks

Da Noi Restaurant

Went for a birthday meal last Friday 3rd November and had a fabulous evening. The cocktails were delicious as was the food. Staff were extremely friendly, attentive and obliging...have booked again for special family evening (12) coming up in a couple of weeks! highly reccomend

Excellent nursery. 5 mins walk from tram station. Good facilities.

Narnia Day Nursery

37 Regent Rd, Altrincham WA14 1RU, UK – 0161 929 1307

Our son is lucky enough to have been at Narnia from being 9 months old so he has progressed through each of the rooms. There is a very low staff turnover so he has benefited from long relationships with each of his key workers. The nursery is a very caring and nurturing environment for the children to be part of and all of the children feel happy and safe in the environment; you can really see this with how at ease all of the children are in each room as they move through the nursery. Tasks are targeted in line with the child's individual development and they are continually encouraged in both social and educational activities. The outside play area is used at least twice a day by the children, in all weathers, and this is something our son has loved during his time at Narnia and it provides a lovely variety to the children's day. There is a great routine, which we think will really help our son when he comes to start school, circle time has really built his confidence and he is very happy to talk about his feelings and activities he has done. Mealtimes are also very social and again, we think this structure will help a lot in the early days of starting school. We could not recommend the Narnia team highly enough. The nursery is very small and has a real family feel, which was the key reason for us choosing to send our son there. The 'back office' processes and requests are seamless and there is a very open forum for communication between parents and staff. An excellent nursery and we will miss everyone very much come September!
