Dental Surgeries

Edgbaston Dental Centre

127 Pershore Rd, Birmingham B5 7NX, UK – 0121 440 2751

Best dentist I've to! Most notably Dr Sodha, he really does go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable during procedures and treats your teeth like his own, so results have been great so far! He has a lot of patience and happy to answer questions in an effective matter. Consequently, I would really recommend this dentist to people. Great service, can't fault it!

Another visit to this practice again today and again a most pleasurable visit. My dentist Kieran and the dental nurse are amazing. I've always had a massive fear of the dental chair,but found myself nodding off today I was that relaxed. My teeth are looking fantastic and I'm so happy with it all. A big thankyou all again and keisha you are amazing and actually care about the people who attend your clinic.

Birmingham Dental Hospital

Had some early issues in my treatment. but they acted speedily to resolve these - and the treatment from the senior consultant has been superb. Easy to access site with good parking close to the building and friendly and helpful reception and support staff.

Amazing hospital lovely caring staff. I had a wisdom tooth extracted was in so much pain when arrived there, all the staff were so caring. Thank you 😊

Academy of Birmingham Cosmetic and General Dentistry

Friendly, easy going yet professional service. I can highly recommend the services at ABC Dentistry. Very good value for money. Despite I am moving to the Netherlands I will be back for the recommended check up for sure! Thank you!

Small Heath Medical Practice

2 Great Wood Rd, Birmingham B10 9QE, UK – 0121 766 8828

I would agree with other reviewers about the doctors being respectful and attentive to the needs of patients. Dr Sweeney is by far the best doctor here , in my opinion. They do have a habit now of getting things wrong- my prescription was sent to a pharmacy for no reason at all without my instruction or consent. Compounding matters even further, the wrong items were issued so i had to go back to the surgery. Such errors are tremendously inconvenient and have been occuring with a disturbing frequency. Occasionally receptionists can be a little rude but as its not an endemic problem i just put it down to a bad day, they do have to contend with a whole array of different patients from the pleasant to the pugnacious.

Always been a first rate medical centre with innovative ideas. Can't recall a situation that warranted a complaint. I've been under their care over 45 years!

Hockley Medical Practice

60 Carver St, Birmingham B1 3AL, UK – 0121 554 1757

Great Doctor's practice, modern, light, has a pharmacy attached. The staff are great, the doctors are good, really talk to you about your problems and what the best course of action is. Massive difference compared to my last Doctor's. Thank you to all the staff for making this such a good place to visit.

Catering facilities and staff, fantastic and the care by all the consultants, doctors and nursing staff was exceptional.

The Westbourne Centre

The Westbourne Centre, 53 Church Rd, Birmingham B15 3SJ, UK – 0121 456 0880

I recently attended the Westbourne Centre for a tooth extraction with Mr Evans. The first of my three visits was brief. I had a dental x ray, followed by me explaining the issues I had encountered and what could be done to resolve it. I was reassured my other oral issues were linked to my wisdom tooth being impacted, and that he could resolve this for me, no problem. Whilst waiting for a letter to confirm the details of my surgery (just over a week), I thought I’d pop into the centre to see if I could get a cancellation slot or anything sooner. Reception kindly found an available slot for the following week. Extraction day. Mr Evans could tell I was really nervous but again, he reassured me it would be fine, done in 20 minutes and made a couple of jokes to lighten the mood. To my delight, the tooth was out in around 15 minutes (I timed it) and I felt no pain at all. I was given advice for after treatment and I was out. No problem. Ten days later, I had my final consultation regarding the extraction. I was very happy with the surgery and aftercare received from Mr Evans (still no pain). I will be returning to Mr Evans to have a Salivary gland stone under my tongue removed. I'd like to thank all the staff at the centre for ensuring I had a pleasant experience.

I have always had professional, friendly care from everyone at The Westbourne Centre; I have been there for various appointments and procedures and will always recommend it. In addition, the surroundings are clean, modern and relaxing. I am going back soon for a further procedure because I feel I am in great hands there.

Edgbaston Old Church

Church Rd, Birmingham B15 3TA, UK – 0121 454 5439

I first visited in the early 1990s to see the grave of Joseph Henry Shorthouse, author of "John Inglesant", which has been called the greatest religious novel in English literature. No one there knew where he and his wife are buried, but someone kindly checked the registers and located their graves near the porch entrance. I see he is still not listed on the web site, and that saddens me. So some church member, please read the novel and photograph the grave, and post it on the web site. You might also get a copy of "J Henry Shorthouse, author of 'John Inglesant' by Charles W Spurgeon. Shorthouse's novel, set in the days of his late majesty, Charles I, earned Spurgeon a PhD from the University of London. The doctoral dissertation does not matter; what matters to me is that St Bartholomew's is still neglecting one of their very worthy saints. You have a beautiful church building, and I hope the spirit of your congregation is as beautiful!

We love this church! The congregation are the best in Birmingham. They really mean it when they say that all are welcome! Children are particularly welcome (although there aren't many of us with children) our children would absolutely love there to be more youngsters. You have got to hear Alison Joyce give a sermon - she is awesome!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Birmingham

The Warehouse Cafe

54-57 Allison St, Birmingham B5 5TH, UK – 0121 633 0261

An incredible vegan cafe! I honestly didn't think vegan food could taste this good! Went for Sunday Lunch and it was delightful. Very quick and friendly table service, food arrived swiftly and are huge portions for the price. I very much recommend this place for a nice meal or raven just a coffee in the chilled ambience.

Great vegetarian cafe. Good menu with lots of options. I had the Buddha bowl, which was delicious. The fruit and veggies were all fresh and the various beans and grains went well together. Nice interior and nice staff.


12-22 Newhall St, Birmingham B3 3LX, UK – 0121 200 2767

Very nice food. The items I had seemed to have a North Indian influence and were lovely, but pricey. The welcome is not as warm as I would expect from this brand and price level. It seems very rushed and could be improved. For this price level, I would expect some level of conversation and not just order taking. As mentioned the food, drinks (including mocktails which my kids loved) and desserts were lovely, but be prepared for your wallet to take a hammering.

I’m a peoples person. I care and want them to care “have you been here before” is an important thing for me to hear. It opens up conversions and comfortability with the waiter. That was lacking, I never even got a name. They (two different people) came to take the order and left. The guy talked fast and mumbled THE FOOD. That being said food was fantastic and that is the reason for a 4 rating. It was flavorful and filling. More than enough to eat with a bowl of rice and curry


55 Colmore Row Lower Ground Retail, Birmingham B3 2AA, UK – 0121 439 9236

Thank heavens they've softened the ambience a bit. Still underground, but less steel and mirrors, more drapery which means the echo and noise has abated considerably, which makes it a much more pleasant experience. This is THE place to have steak, it's fabulous in that regard. Also good for lunch and evenings alike. Being Argentinian, they cook things on the rarer side of normal for me, so my tip for diners is thus: where steak is concerned I normally go 'medium-rare', but here I go 'medium' and that is perfect, and I mean perfect. Vegetarians will find a very slim choice, so check the menu online first if you think this may sway your booking or enjoyment

My wife and I came here for our anniversary in August 2017. We felt like it was a magical evening and like the staff wanted us to truly enjoy our evening together. Just came here today for Father's Day and my father-in-law absolutely loved it! He's nearly converted, just need to get him to try the steak now!

Nursery and Preschools

Edgbaston Nursery School

41 Calthorpe Rd, Birmingham B15 1TS, UK – 0121 455 7887

I have gone through so many Nurseries. I visited maybe 10 and joined 2 for maximum 2 weeks but none was as good as this nursery. They care about the child they let them play outside often. They have HALAL meals. And most important that they work as a family.

My son has attended Edgbaston nursery school from baby room right through to pre school,I cant rate this nursery highly enough. I now have my second son joining after Xmas as I am going back to work after maternity leave,and I'm so happy to leave him as my first son loves it, The staff are very friendly and go out of there way to do as much as possible to make my son feel special. I receive text messages on how my son is doing and what activities they are doing during the day and I love it, it stops me from calling all the time to see how he is, Although sometime I do its so nice to hear he is ok and the staff are happy to explain how he is and put him on the phone to talk to me if I need to ...happy mommy :-)

Moseley Montessori Nursery

St Columba Church, Chantry Road, Moseley, Birmingham B13 8DJ, UK – 0121 449 1801

My daughter was at the Moseley Montessori nursery for 4 years from September 2013 until Summer 2017. As a solo parent I can't tell you how much help and support I had from this incredible team of people in nurturing my daughter through her early years, and done with such sensitivity and consideration for the both of us. The Montessori approach is just amazing and my daughter has been supported in becoming such an imaginative and persevering soul and have to attribute much of this to what she experienced at the nursery. The holistic approach to her growth and well being was outstanding. If I had had the chance to keep her in the Montessori method I would!

We have nothing but praise for Moseley Montessori Nursery! Our first child went here in 2013 and had an excellent time. We noticed his development speed up as soon as he began here in the baby room and he stayed all the way through, even though we moved away from the area. Our second child began at a nursery closer to where we live now but we had such a bad experience there (despite it having a wonderful ofsted review) that we decided that he should also go to Moseley Montessori. We make the journey from the Maypole end of Kings Heath so that he can have as good an experience as his brother did. I believe that the Montessori methods for early years development are wonderful but that is not the only reason our children have gone here. The amazing staff and managers are reliable, trustworthy, warm and caring. Many thanks to all the staff, we cannot recommend you highly enough!

King Edward's School

Edgbaston Park Road, Birmingham B15 2UA, UK – 0121 472 1672

I have two sons at the school and both have benefited from the academic focus the school provides and the opportunity to develop both intellectually and socially. For a provincial day school, its outlook is remarkably non-parochial. It fosters a tolerant and almost international outlook. It has yet to reach a needs blind admissions system but for a UK school gets close. The fact that it offers a generous assisted places scheme speaks volumes about its ethos and commitment to social mobility and inclusion. It is well known in the Midlands but deserves more national recognition. My boys are lucky and thankfully they realise it.

The best school in England. U have to put ur son in this amazing place!

Priory School

39 Sir Harrys Rd, Birmingham B15 2UR, UK – 0121 440 4103

Since I have been at priory school, I as a person have changed for the better. I now have so much more confidence to get up on stage and found all my hidden talents that before I didn't know I had. I have been at priory school since year 3 and I am now in year 7. Priory school offer loads of amazing activates and opportunities to school productions, sport fixtures, school trips and many, many more. All the staff, teachers and students at Priory are outstanding and pushed all of my potential out of me and made the best of me. I have made life long friends that I will never forget and memories that will last life time. I have enjoyed many years and amazing memories at priory and can't wait for the next years to come. Maddie Y7 student

I've not even been here a year and I love it. All the teachers are nice. All the lessons are fun and I really enjoy them. There are small things the school can improve on e.g. The way we pay for food. They are not things to worry about though. I totally recommend coming here you'll make good friends and enjoy the lessons and all the special events such as preforming arts day. So remember if your looking for a school Priory is one of the best options.
