I went into hsbc Strood today to deposit some money . Id come down from London to visit my mum. Whilst she went to boots I stood in line. When I got to the counter & made said deposit I had severe chest pains. (I suffer from heart & blood pressure problems ). As I tried to take a breath the cashier Natalie noticed something was wrong & immediately jumped into action. Telling me to "sit down right now I'm coming to you" . She brought me water & found my pills for me rang my mum & stayed very calm in a very tense situation.. she kept me talking & totally put me at ease asking me if I needed an ambulance she would get one straight away. I explained my condition & she talked me through it whilst I calmed down. I just wanted to say thank you so very much Natalie. Your instincts were spot on & without u taking control I would have needed that ambulance. ... you went above & beyond for me today without question & I thank you from the bottom of my heart (excuse the pun) & my mum thanks you also !!

I rang for a bit of advice and the representative was quite defensive and talked over me when my call was not a criticism. Perhaps need to work on their telephone manners

Always friendly good banking service where you talk to a person not a machine


56 High St, Rochester ME2 4AG, UK – 0345 788 8444

Very helpful staff especially the young blonde girl, shame that the older generation can't use the ATM or online banking for their banking needs They cause the queue's! Never queued to use the ATM inside the branch and never have to queue using the online app!!!

Very helpful staff. Although looks small, service is quick

Dental Surgeries

Chatham Dental Surgery

131 High St, Chatham ME4 4DH, UK – 01634 406776

Sadly our experience at this surgery has not been positive. After some continued issues with treatment we asked for all dental records so we could transfer to a new practice, which was never received. The receptionists were not as friendly as they could have been. The surgery is not wheelchair accessible, patients must walk a flight of stairs to reach reception. The surgery itself seems run down.

Thorndike Dental Care

374 High St, Rochester ME1 1DJ, UK – 01634 817417

Brilliant and friendly staff. Always able to get an appointment. Dentist is superb. Won't find better.

best dental practice around.There level of care is second to none would not consider using any other dentist.

Gibraltar Dental Practice

Gibraltar House, New Road, Chatham ME4 4RY, UK – 01634 400128

Absolutely couldn't fault Gibraltar house, I went this morning to have a tooth out under sedation, was extremely nervous as I had a bad experience years ago, all the staff were amazing and put u at ease, was all over in 20mins and I don't remember a thing! Thank you so much, will be back for my next treatment soon

Wife cracks her tooth which pushes into gum 'under the gum line'. Had to go straight there as phone busy and they are unfortunately skeleton crew. They explained to our dentist the urgency and pain and, although he was in need to leave early, had no problem treating my wife. Fantastic service and a very kind professional person. So glad we are at this practice. Excellent treatment. ( even though she will need to have the tooth removed at a later date).

City Way Medical Practice

65-67 City Way, Rochester ME1 2AY, UK – 01634 843351

On the whole this is a very good practice, i have been registered here for over 20 yrs and in that time have been very well looked after. Unfortunately it is the attitude of the few that tarnishes the whole, there are a couple of people on the administration team that have poor customer skills and are very condescending, if this could be addressed then i am sure the patient views will only improve. Lets hope that the new practice manager Kelly Temple can get these issues addressed for the benefit of everyone

The Gun Lane Medical Centre

Gun Ln, Rochester ME2 4UW, UK – 01634 727888

Difficult to get an appointment at times. Most gp's are okay there. One gp Dr ray is great but only works there for 2 days a week. Could use a refurb, looking very dated and a bit untidy around the edges

Excellent surgery ...I have had no problems getting a appointment and medication ..keep it up !

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.

REEM hair and beauty

2 Church St, Chatham ME4 4BS, UK – 01634 812204

I chose Church because of their great reputation in the medway area. I have been having my hair cut and styled for over a year now. I have recently started using them for massage treatments and have to say having travelled a lot and used many spas, the massage at Church is second to none.

I went to reem hair and beauty to buy a surprise present for my wife, I had chosen REEM because of it's 5stars on the good salon guide. She was very worried about going somewhere new for her cut and colour but the staff were very welcoming, they listened to her needs and she left with exactly what she wanted. Now we bring the whole family down and will always use in the future. Steve Humphreys

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Rochester

Coast to Coast American Restaurant & Bar

Medway Valley Leisure Park, Chariot Way, Rochester ME2 2SS, UK – 01634 715257

Kitschy American diner style chain with above average food. The menu is what you would expect with burgers, steaks, and wings etc but a cut above the usual pub grub deep fried and reheated standard. A happy atmosphere and good service. There is even a bit if a view of the Medway. The location isn't great being stuck in the middle of nowhere at a leisure park outside of Rochester but we were stuck at the hotel there and this was a pleasant surprise.

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. I had just got engaged and we came here for dinner. The manager had provided us with a congratulations bottle of wine as well as strawberries and chocolate sauce. Service was great, food came out very fast and was delicious and our congratulations wine was free!

Elizabeths Restaurant

154 High St, Rochester ME1 1ER, UK – 01634 843472

Decided to go out rather than cook and asked Google for a good restaurant. Found it! The food and serivce were great. welcoming and warm with a very good gin and wine selection.. beautifully cooked meal for 2 with wine, drinks, coffee £85.00 great value. So why a 4 star not 5..trained chef's spot minor errors. That didn't detract from our evening and will return. Thank you Elizabeth's

Very nice up market restaurant with very well presented waiters/waitresses. Very polite and very well organised. Food is fantastic and the menu is great with a good selection. All for a very affordable price. Worth trying if only for the experience of dressing up smart and feeling like your a part of a higher class (posh type restaurant) but for a price very unlike a posh type restaurant

Pizza Express

21-23 High St, Rochester ME1 1LN, UK – 01634 812171

Great food but mixed service from the owner and son. The son was great, the dad not so especially when offering to serve someone who was behind us in the que first! The golden rule is to take note of your waiting customers.

Said they didn't receive are bookings for a table but was still very friendly to help fix the issue, friendly waiters and food was nice.

Cherubs Montessori

This is an outstanding nursery and pre-school. Both of my children attended and we were astounded at their development while they were there. The staff are all very friendly, you get a lot of information about what the children have been doing each day, you get regular parents meetings to speak to key workers about your child's development. My children were always very happy here.

Cherubs is a lovely nursery, both my children go there, the staff are lovely and it's a very happy place. They are open almost all year round taking few holidays and run from 0700 to 1900 amazing!
