Tesco Cashpoint

Norman Industrial Estate, 109 Cambridge Rd, Milton, Cambridge CB24 6AY, UK

Quick and easy, just redone the machines so it's quicker and cleaner, some of the time one of the points are out of cash but will only be like that for one day but of so there's one by the petrol station. Never normaly a que so that's a plus.

Carter Jonas - Cambridge North

169 Histon Rd, Cambridge CB4 3JD, UK – 01223 472011

We bought a house in North Cambridge that was sold through Carter Jonas. They were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole process and happy to answer my many questions about buying! Would definitely recommend them.

I have sold and bought with Carter Jonas, the Histon Road office staff were very helpful and friendly, the whole team supported our property journey and provided a smooth experience. I am very grateful to the team for their hard work.

Quite tranquil place, small park

Nice-sized hall with good facilities and a playground outside for the kids. Concrete block walls mean the acoustic isn't the best though.

Dental Surgeries

Histon Dental Surgery

66 Station Rd, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9LF, UK – 01223 236799

I have been attending this surgery for several years. I can often get an appointment quite soon after I call. I am very satisfied with the work done. They have not tried to 'sell' me expensive treatments.

The dentists themselves are good - four stars. They're let down by the receptionists who are difficult to deal with, for example you need a filling replaced but they will only book a short appointment, so you end up having to visit twice. And if you need an emergency you'll be lucky to get anything quickly. You can wait a long time in reception to be seen, and there's no wifi for patients. There is a car park, and it's convenient to get to if you live/work on the north side of Cambridge.

Hurst Park Dental Practice

2A Hurst Park Ave, Cambridge CB4 2AE, UK – 01223 356765

I was referred to the endodontic specialist at Hurst Park Dental Practice with a severe root infection, after having received root canal treatment at a different Dental Practice. Although the delay in referral by my previous dentist had exacerbated the condition, Hurst Park dealt with the problem efficiently, painlessly and effectively. They saved my tooth! What more can I say except a very heartfelt thank you. I would definitely recomment Hurst Park Dental Practice.

I had to have quite a lot of dentistry work in 2013. Loose and broken bridges needed to be replaced. Stephen was able to replace the bridges by putting in implants. The temporary dentures were amazing but the implants are brilliant. You cannot tell the difference between the implanted teeth and my real teeth. The colour match is unbelievable. There was no discomfort during the treatment or the healing process. My implants are stillI serving me well. No problems what-so-ever. I cannot praise Stephen highly enough for the standard of his work.....and he plays really good music in the surgery while you are in the chair.

Histon Dental Clinic

10a Station Rd, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9LQ, UK – 01223 566121

I've been a patient here for years. Always happy with the treatment and service I have received from Dr Norah-Marie Rattigan who explains treatment plans clearly and will always look after my best interest. Early appointments at 7.40 available, great to have treatment/checkups before work. Practice manager Cathy always helpful and will support with filling in forms. I have recommended friends and family for emergency treatment out of hours who have now stayed with the clinic as they are happy with the service.

Having received treatments from both Dr Norah-Marie and Dr Damian, I would highly recommend this dental clinic. I found the service to be extremely friendly & professional.

Arbury Surgery

114 Arbury Rd, Cambridge CB4 2JG, UK – 01223 364433

A excellent dedicated group of doctors, nurses also employee's. The practice put forward a first class service to the patients.

On the whole, knowledgeable caring staff

Professor Cathy Speed

Vision Park, Conqueror House, Chivers Way, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9ZR, UK – 01223 200595

The is professor had one appointment with me and she took her time to diagnose and help me get the care I needed.

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.

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital

30 New Rd, Impington, Cambridge CB24 9EL, UK – 01223 266900

Used this company last year for a knee scan. They rushed through the process offering no insight for the problem and promptly took 250GBP and then referred us to get an MRI scan. Complete fee vultures in my opinion. If you expect anything that is not available on NHS then look elsewhere.

So much better experience than the NHS, How hospitals should be run! Brilliant consultant I'm under every appointment bang on time and great FREE refreshments unlike addenbrookes!

Decent Cleaning - Cambridge Domestic & Commercial Services

Orwell House, Cowley Rd, Cambridge CB4 0PP, UK – 01223 655425

Great service -cleaners were friendly and efficient. Very thorough job and for a very reasonable price. Used for end of tenancy deep clean - no quibbles from the estate agent.

I was very impressed with the service offered by Decent Cleaning Company -they were efficient, professional and very friendly. As my tenancy was coming to an end, Decent Cleaning was incredibly helpful in coming on the weekend, and left the place spotless for the estate agent inspection. It was great to be able to rely on their services at such a stressful time! Their rates are also very competitive – very good value for money. I would highly recommend them and will be sure to use them again in the future.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Cambridge

Graffiti Restaurant, Cambridge

Hotel Felix, Whitehouse Lane, Girton, Cambridge CB3 0LX, UK – 01223 277977

What a beautiful restaurant . We went there last night. The food was amazing and very good service.

Consistently good food and service make this a great spot to celebrate a special occasion!

Golden Spice

74 Akeman St, Cambridge CB4 3HG, UK – 01223 720630

I ordered through hungry house which was a bad idea, I called the restaurant and dealt with them directly which helped, they were friendly and helpful. Food arrived pretty much when they said, hot and really tasty. The dishes had the right meat/sauce ratio and they were good cuts of meat which you sometimes don't get elsewhere I've tried. Loved it. I'll definitely be ordering from them again. 💯✔

love this place, love the food. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

Beefeater Travellers Rest - Cambridge

Huntingdon Road, Cambridge, Girton CB3 0DL, UK – 01223 276182

Have to say booked for a Sunday evening without reading the reviews. Once we did we were a bit worried. Apart from being kept waiting a few minutes on arrival (which started to reinforce the reviews) we actually had a great experience. It was busy but service was good. Staff were very friendly and helpful to us and others. Food was well cooked and tasty. We had battered fish and chips and smothered chicken . Waitress seemed surprised that we paid in cash. It is closing down shortly for refurbishment.

I love this place, so pretty and unusual, on the outskirts of the city so easy to meet up rather than struggle to park. Food can be a little slow coming, and sometimes tasty sometimes not, think it depends on timing and how busy they are. Agree with the slow service which is disappointing, I enjoy it there though.

Nursery and Preschools

Girton Nursery

Camboro Business Park, Oakington Rd, Girton, Cambridge CB3 0QH, UK – 01223 233751

Look no further for a truly great nursery. Ofsted take note, this one should be Outstanding!

Absolutely lovely nursery two of my children have attended here, staff are so caring it was like home from home. Management great very approachable great outdoor play area too.

Colleges Nursery and Family Centre

Centre Hamilton Rd, Cambridge CB4 2LD, UK – 01223 712168

Colleges Nursery school is a fantastic place and I would recommend it in the warmest terms to anybody. The teachers and staff are experienced, caring and utterly dedicated. They have a real understanding of the age group they work with, and support families in the best possible way. The activities they do are imaginative and ambitious and we are always so impressed by the things our son tells us about: cooking, forest school, crafts, celebrating festivals from many different cultures, etc. The outside space is also really great and has all sorts of different things to do. Our son asks to go to nursery at the weekend sometimes...

Lovely nursery. Staff are friendly and all the children seem happy. They have a good mentality to looking after children which was a primary reason for choosing them for my son. My only issue is that the site is not big enough, in my opinion, for a young child to grow up. With that side, they have done wonders with the space and activities they can do in the site.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Chesterton Community College

Gilbert Rd, Cambridge CB4 3NY, UK – 01223 712150

Attended between 2004 and 2007. Teachers are okay, however bullying isn't addressed incredibly quickly...

It's a good school. Overall quality of teaching is good and you're going to have a good time in the school, regardless of who you are. No faults as far as this student is concerned.
