TSB Bank

18 Busby Rd, Clarkston, Glasgow G76 7XL, UK – 0141 397 9988

Hit or miss with customer service in this branch of TSB. Depends on which member of staff you get whether you’ll have a positive customer experience or not.

Having had great difficulty accessing my account online, in exasperation I went into this branch of the TSB. I was treated with great patience, professionalism and helpfulness by Lynda. She showed just how customers should be treated and I cannot recommend her service highly enough. Thank you. J Dawson

Local Chambers of Commerce for G45. 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!
Rutherglen Town Hall

139 Main St, Rutherglen, Glasgow G73 2JJ, UK – 0141 613 5700

Doesn't matter if you are just coming in for a coffee/cake in the cafe or coming to an event in the Grand hall, Rutherglen Town Hall has it all. Great venue and great staff.πŸ˜€

Nice building exterior, modern glass extension to the back that has a leaky ceiling onto the tables and floor of the cafe below. The cafe itself is pricey but food is fresh made to order and quite tasty. The children's lunch meal is good value and a hit with my youngest. Downside is the upstairs toilet facilities, only one downstairs disabled access toilet, engaged more often than not. Quite pleasant overall

Dental Surgeries

Michael Kelly Dentistry

667 Clarkston Rd, Glasgow G44 3SE, UK – 0141 637 1745

I had two implants done at MKD. Michael very reassuring and took the time to explain every detail. As well as the implants I also required a bone graft. Again no problem and Michael guided me through every step. The process took longer than normal due to illness. Now I have teeth to be proud of and are a perfect match. Great dentist with brilliant staff. Well done MKD.

I came to Mr Kelly following a long, frustrating (and expensive) experience with another dentist which had left me reluctant to smile as the denture provided by them was of poor quality, did not actually suit me and had left me unable to say the letter S! Mr Kelly listened to my concerns and worked with me to produce a new implanted denture, within a given time guideline, which, aesthetically, suits my face, and is a better fit, so that I no longer spit over people when I talk to them! In the few weeks since my treatment has finished I have received two compliments from complete strangers on my 'beautiful smile', first time from a lady at a wedding here in Scotland and the second occasion, on holiday in Tenerife last week, when a Spanish lady crossed a restaurant floor to say the same thing! I was a bit embarrassed, but delighted at the same time...... I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Mr Kelly and his practice. I am a very happy customer (and I smile a lot!)

Brite Dental Clarkston

Carolside Gardens Glasgow, 11 Busby Rd, Clarkston, Glasgow G76 7BX, UK – 0141 644 1210

A great team of professionals who are good with the whole family. I've had to ask them for emergency appointments a few times and they always squeeze me in with a smile. Brian and his team have always gone the extra mile to ensure my complicated dental care is handled with sensitivity and professionalism. Thanks for looking after me (and my children) so well.

Been a patient since practice opened. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Brian and staff always pleasant and put you at ease. First class service.

Whitecart Dental Care

15 Clarkston Rd, Glasgow G44 4EF, UK – 0141 637 5081

Went to this Dentist after having a negative experience with another one. The place has a very relaxed atmosphere and staff at reception were chatty and friendly. My teeth were checked by Martin; very friendly and capable guy who explained everything really well. There was no delay in getting everything done to my teeth which needed doing and I was more than happy with the treatment received and service provided. EDIT (JAN 2018): I believe Martin has now moved to pastures new and I am now usually booked in with Carole. She is really lovely; chats away to you, has superb knowledge and advice to offer and was only too happy to reshape my worn-down canines with composite. After years of teeth-grinding resulting in flat canines, I was given proper, normal-looking teeth back at a fraction of what I thought it was going to cost. To find yourself in the dentist's chair- something that people often panic over- and to be handed a mirror to look at your new smile, together with the completely relaxed atmosphere really makes you feel like you're in a clinic in LA. Alright I exaggerate just a tad but you get the idea. I hope this place never changes.

The team at White Cart Dental are fabulous! I had spoken to Colin about improving my smile. I had had braces as a teenager and the work had not been done correctly and my teeth were still overlapping and it had been incredibly painful so I was reticent to get braces again. Colin was very understanding and came up with an alternative, filling in some gaps, levelling my teeth and whitening. I am so happy with the results and while they are subtle, I am so much happier with my teeth and I am smiling more in photos.

Kings Park Surgery

Very good doctors

The Battlefield Surgery

Very good practice, never had a problem getting an appointment. Always had one that day for urgent issues and within a week for more routine appointments. Staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Excellent local surgery. Flexible opening hours, good doctors and the staff are always happy to help and accommodate.

MacLeod R J

9 Baker St, Glasgow G41 3YA, UK – 0141 632 4962

I have been with Dr MacLeod for nearly 40 years and have nothing but praise for him and the members of his staff. They couldn't do enough for me and my wife and I do not understand what the other person on this forum is on about. Even I know that there is not too much you can do for broken rids. Or is there another motive for what this person was after? Strange.

25 years Dr MacLeod, RJ. has been my GP. deserves a medal !

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Glasgow

Battlefield Rest

55 Battlefield Rd, Glasgow G42 9JL, UK – 0141 636 6955

Best fillet steak I have ever tasted. It was just part of an excellent evening. First rate service with a friendly touch, fresh local produce and a kitchen on form Glad I don't live nearer. Would not eat at home.

Quick visit on a whim for lunch while working. Delicious baked pasta primavera with a glass of diet Coke for Β£6.90 Absolutely delicious! The atmosphere and taste of Italy in a lovely little historical building (a converted tram and bus terminus). Service pleasant and quick although the restaurant was quite busy (a testiment to its popularity). I can't fault this venue for a great lunch, and I suspect dinner would be equally great, with the addition of some lovely Italian wines!
