Banks

TSB Bank

200 Morningside Rd, Edinburgh EH10 4QQ, UK – 0131 517 9993

This out of the way branch has an air of pending closure about it......

Nationwide

320 Morningside Rd, Edinburgh EH10 4QW, UK – 0800 554 0936

Always found the staff to be very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Only downside is the location - Morningside Road, a notorious bottleneck with legal nearby parking at a premium.

Really helpful staff. Compared to the high street bank I also use, Nationwide is a breath of fresh air. Also have a pretty decent app, which means I find myself coming here less.

Dental Surgeries

Colinton Dental Practice

21 Bridge Rd, Edinburgh EH13 0LH, UK – 0131 441 2999

Very good treatment of root canal which was painless so thanks to Jill

I am happy with the treatment I receive in general, and have been going to this dental practice for years, but find it hard to understand why there it no one to take a phone call in the middle of a Tuesday morning when I have a chipped tooth that needs attention.

Seven Hills Dental Practice

302 Oxgangs Rd N, Edinburgh EH13 9ND, UK – 0131 441 3231

I've researched for a few dental clinics in Edinburgh for awhile and finally found the one for me. My first visit to Seven Hills Dental Practice I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and welcoming they were. When I first met my new dentist Dr Veneeth Balachandra he made me feel right home. He has offered me more choices of treatments for my specific problems never offered by previous dentists. I am looking forward to starting my treatments and I am certain I will have a successful results. H. Evans

There is a ramp up but has a lip on door. U could get wheelchair over it but there are steps down to where u go to see the dentist

Craiglockhart Dental Practice

132 Colinton Rd, Edinburgh EH14 1BY, UK – 0131 443 4050

I can not recommend this practice enough! I recently joined as I required some urgent dental work but I was also interested in the teeth whitening treatments as well as getting my front crown replaced (as I always felt my last crown didn't quite match my other front tooth in colour or shape). I found the service here excellent and the staff were all so friendly. I was amazed at the results and everyone who knows me comments on how great my teeth look!!

Staff very friendly and helpful, and I was seen as soon as my appointment was due. No undue pressure to undertake unnecessarily expensive treatments, but instead a professional and first class scale and polish - and all on NHS. I was with a private practice for years and there is absolutely no discernable difference in the quality of care...except there's no wallet-paralysing bill at the end. Cannot believe that everyone eligible doesn't take advantage of this excellent service.

A beautiful chruch located next to water of Leith and easily accessible by water of Leith walkway. Building of chruch was combination of historical church along with modern cafe. Graveyard next to chruch was very peaceful and clean. Overall it was very relaxing environment and can be thoroughly enjoyed. It also insight to work of Robert Louis Stevenson who was famous Scottish writer.

Love this place but unfortunately quite a bit away but good for getting out of city chaos

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Charwood

47 Buckstone Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 6QJ, UK – 0131 445 2233

I always enjoy going in to Charwood. It's a great open plan area with full length glass windows over looking the patio and water feature. The menu is great as is the choice of drinks. It's always the same staff who are in and they are lovely! :-)

Good choice of both drinks and food, at a very reasonable price. Staff extremely friendly and helpful in a clean and modern atmosphere. Can be a little noisy however if you use any hearing aids due to accustics of the building

Dantes

48-50 Bridge Rd, Edinburgh EH13 0LQ, UK – 0131 441 7427

I came to dine with my partner on Monday night. Service from the two male staff that where on was very good. Could not have done more for us to make sure we had a pleasant meal. As for the food it was very well presented and very very tasty too. Would highly recommend Only down side and it is minor is that a lot of the wines didn’t look to be done by the glass only had bottle prices.

Amazing family restaurant. Great atmosphere fantastic service and fabulous food. Well worth a regular visit 😁

Osteria del Tempo Perso

208 Bruntsfield Pl, Edinburgh EH10 4DE, UK – 0131 221 1777

If you're looking for an authentic taste of Italy this is the place you're looking for. Everything about Tempo Perso is amazing: - the staff is always warm and welcoming, makes you feel at home and they're always checking you are truly enjoying your food; - the restaurant itself, although not too big, is decorated with exquisite taste and there's Italy on every corner; - the menu choice is very good and not too big, which means that every meal has been carefully studied in order to offer the best experience; - food is just spectacular, the quality of the ingredients is top and the chef's team does an incredible job by preparing wonderful meals that have been put on a dish with exquisite taste, portions are big as per Italian style. Considering the quality of the ingredients, the beautiful preparation and the impeccable service, the restaurant it's not even pricy! What's more to say? I have been here already 3 time in a couple of years and I am already looking forward for my next time!! Marco

Great food, great service. Great place to go for Italian in Edinburgh. Our guide r commended the place and he wasn’t wrong. Our server treated us to a shot of goodness after the meal to cleanse our palette and wake us up. Damn Daniel!

Good school

Edinburgh Steiner School

60 Spylaw Rd, Edinburgh EH10 5BR, UK – 0131 337 3410

I have three children at the School, and they have always been really happy here. It is a wonderful school, and a great community.

The care for the children and attention to detail that the staff give is outstanding. I wish there were more schools like this one. The children are happy probably because they are allowed to be the individuals that they are. I love the fact school starting age is 6 or 7 in steiner schools. Research shows that this is better for the children's self esteem and also for academic achievement as children learn most from playing before the age of 7. I have met many wonderful people through the school. It is a lovely community of families.

Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh

294 Colinton Rd, Edinburgh EH13 0PU, UK – 0131 312 2200

I was a pupil at Merchiston Castle School from 2000 until 2005 (which was when I finished my A-Levels). I really enjoyed, and have fond memories of, my time at Merchiston. The staff and teachers were always very helpful and facilitating to the pupils' needs. I cannot recommend this school enough!

Absolutely top notch. Had my boys at another competing school in EDI for a bit and found the culture gravely lacking, and teachers unwilling to really care about it beyond a bit of lip service. In contrast, Merchi walks the talk through and through. Very 'real,' happy, enriched boys who support each other and are supported by teachers and staff with emotional intelligence and true caring for the experience and excitement for learning. Fabulous education. Where at prior school the kids cut each other down, here one of my sons had a peer warmly talk him through some homesickness as he tried to fall asleep, etc. Such a warm, welcoming place and parents are always about and welcome. Whereas the prior school was a scratchy starched shirt, Merchi is a warm, cozy cashmere jumper. You really can't find better. Be sure to do a taster day as again, some schools sell well but your child can only thrive and be happy and excited to go to school if the experience is amazing every single day, with every single teacher. And as a lesson learned on my part - trust your child after the taster day. You don't want to have to switch schools after 3 months because Mom and Dad were impressed by a lower-culture school just b/c "TB went there..." Merchi offers the real thing through and through.
