Chafford Hundred Dental Care

Drake Road, Chafford Hundred, Grays RM16 6SE, UK – 01375 481000

What can I say except a great big massive thank you to Dave and he’s amazing staff for looking after me for the duration that it took for my teeth to be straightened with the wonderful Nuvola braces. I really could not of ask for better service and so professional to. Not only is Dave a fantastic dentist he’s also really nice to chat to and makes you feel so comfortable. So I’m saying thanks again and if I need anymore treatment in the future then I will be back! Oh and also the dental practice itself is clean and very welcoming with lots of magazines, leaflets, spotlessly clean and TV to watch while your waiting to be seen. Plus there is loads of safe parking directly outside :)

Dave is the best dentist I have ever come across, I've seen quite a few in the past but non as excellent as Dave. I went in to see about having braces and 1 1/2 years later I am able to smile proudly showing off my new straight toothy pegs. We didn't take the braces off until Dave and I were both happy, he's a perfectionist. I am so thrilled with the results and recommend Dave to everyone. Lovely friendly guy, I love going in for a catch up and all of the staff are so friendly! Can't imagine going anywhere else now!

Street Farm Dental Studio

West Rd, South Ockendon RM15 6PL, UK – 01708 853019

I can not recommend this place enough. Suffering with severe anxiety, I've never felt comfortable with the dentist before. Having recently moved to the area, I came across Street Farm Dental. The reception staff are very friendly on the phone and in person. They were aware of my anxiety so they made me feel very calm and relaxed. I had Dr Vijay, and I couldn't recommend him enough. He also made me feel very calm and relaxed. He talks to you a little to get to know you as a person, which I thought was really nice. In all the years I've been going to the Dentist, I can honestly say this is the first time I enjoyed my experience. Thank you.

Over whelmed ! At first I was very apprehensive to have my teeth straightened by this innovative fast track brace because the promised results and schedule seemed improbable. After much thought I decided that I would take the chance and go ahead with the procedure carefully carried out by vijay. Of whom was very accommodating and made me feel like I was in good hands, of which I was. I was surprised by the efficiency of the treat meant and overwhelmed by the results. I could not have hopped for better. I’m no longer conscious of my teeth as I was before. Instead I find that I can’t stop smiling. I would recommend street farm dental studio to anyone and every one. Thank you very much.

The GP is amazing, I love the staff from reception to practice nurse to the doctors. The phones in the morning can be annoying however once you are through they will give you 100%. They will make an effort to know every patient 1/1 basis. They have been there for my family every step of the way from small to big things. They have watched my family grow. Keep doing what you guys do, your the best x

I cannot speak highly enough of this practice, from all aspects the Reception Staff are friendly and caring, the nurses will put themselves out to help and Dr Yasin can do no wrong in my eyes. I feel without her care I might not be here now. I know it can be frustrating when the phone is busy or you have to wait for an appointment but in my experience if it is truly an emergency the staff will try their best to make sure you get the care you need when you need it.

Peartree Surgery

Peartree Cl, South Ockendon RM15 6PR, UK – 01708 852318

My appointment was at 9 today... I arrived early and was seen and out by 8.50. Staff were all very helpful and polite.

Dr Tonio Abela (m)

Drake Rd, Chafford Hundred, Grays RM16 6PS, UK – 01375 480000

After I've got a pretty rude attitude of one of the reception staff when I have called to request information about registering as a patient with this practice, I was quite doubtful that this is the GP Practice I actually want to be assigned to. However, Big indeed was my surprise when, at my first visit with the midwife I've got to meet face to face the reception ladies.....very busy, trying as much as they can to assist and I guess sometimes they do come across not as thoughtful and helpful as we would like them to be....but I was truly pleased to meet Joanne, a very nice and polite lady who went beyond the scope of duty to make sure I am a satisfied 'customer' and I can make all necessary appointments I need in time. As I am currently pregnant, the midwife I have met was also very helpful and arranged an appointment with the GP the same day and requested for a meeting with a OBG Consultant much earlier than it was initially booked .... making sure that there will not be critical hiccups with the pregnancy, particularly during my first trimester. What can I say, despite the initial less promising contact with the surgery over the phone, my afterward experience was a very positive one. I am sure there is still room for improvement anywhere else otherwise.....however all in all I am really happy with the speed appointments have been confirmed and the way I was treated as a patient up till now. Thank you Joanne once again! You are a great lady on so many levels. Merry Christmas to Everyone at Dr. Abela's Practice and the best wishes for 2018!

Thoroughly pleased with the service. Always friendly on reception and doctors/nurses very thorough and friendly. Waiting times are also not too long at all! Clean practice and me & my partner very happy to be clients.

Fairly big (300+ congregation) community church with lively worship and bible teaching.

Plenty of opportunities to get involved too from volunteering on Sundays e.g kids work, welcome team etc, or through the week/ holidays with the 180 Project (Community/ Social action arm of the church.)

I have just returned from taking my recycling to Gerpins Lane, I asked at the gate for help because I have just had a knee replacement, and cannot do steps, which is where the cardboard is and the orange bags. I have to say 3 men went beyond the call of duty helping me with everything, it was very much appreciated, and noteworthy on their behalf, thank you Gerpins Lane, a brilliant lot of workers.

The staff on site are always friendly and helpful. Even in the wet weather they were still laughing. Staff gave advice on where to put specific items I had to dispose of.

Fantastic food! Polite waiters, bring your own drink though. Thoroughly recommended.

Prezzo Lakeside

Lakeside Shopping Centre, Grays RM20 2ZP, UK – 01708 862739

IV been here more than 3 times and it's always a great experience. I would say this place is very upmarket and classy for a chain restaurant. Each Prezzo around the UK (iv been to one in central London, and Eastbourne and this one), and they all have a unique sophisticated look to them. It can be noisy at times but its a popular restaurant, so I can't complain. The food is amazing. A great selection of Italian food with alot of flavour. There enough vegaterian dishes to satisfy people. I reckon the butternut squash soup and the chicken pasta. I haven't tried the deserts but I assume there amazing. I recommend this place. Easy to find, great atmosphere and lovely food.

Nice food and consistent

The Oriental Pan Asian Restaurant

Fleming Rd, Chafford Hundred, Grays RM16 6HH, UK – 01375 481268

Clean fresh friendly restaurant. Good excellent. Five adults had a variety mix to share very good . Red and white wine good . Beer went down well . Service spot on without being a pest. Definitely recommend

Great tasting food. A little dearer than other Chinese takeaways. Nice atmosphere to eat in. Not a very big car park though.
