Been to the ones in Kingston and Richmond. You can often get a voucher online, e.g. 2 for 1. Just need to look for them on Google.
Normally good service, though once they served a steak they called sirloin but was in fact a cheaper cut of meat. They blamed someone else for that. They gave me dad a free dessert after he comnplained about that. Best to stick to pizza when you order there.
Richmond really struggled with a pre-theatre crowd. Lots of angry customers that day.
I was looking to buy some jewellery for my wife who likes silver jewellery and found this site.
Its quite a small site, and the look of the website could be improved a bit, but the actual jewellery was nice. I had to exchange a few emails with Sonya who owns the site (and makes the jewellery) as I had some questions about it, but in the end I made my order and my wife was pleased with it.
I shopped around for a cheap place for my SIPP and found Alliance Trust. All charges are up-front, and they rebated fees before the law forced companies to do so.
Website is a bit clunky and sometimes felt the ETF and bonds available limited though.
The rates on my accounts were all good for 12 months, then became terrible. I stopped putting money in the current account and was gouged £5 per month till I realised.
The branch staff are ill trained and it took several branch visits to close my account and get my money back.
Not sure what you gain for going with them. You can get cheaper phone and internet elsewhere, and FreeSat gives loads of channels for nothing.
Used to be a customer, a refugee from Talk Talk, but didnt keep them when I moved house, as the cost wasnt worth it
My wife used to rely on them for much of the Christmas gift shop due to their range and prices, but there have been too many errors in delivery. so she stopped using them.
Examples of errors: sending the wrong item; covering the box in sellotape, making it hard to give as a gift, very, very late delivery.
I often use Zoopla to give guideline valuations of houses. It does sometimes disagree with what local estate agents try to get, but maybe that is a good thing.
I agree with some other reviews that some valuations are a bit skewed due to the recency of sales, but I can sort of see where its coming from. If one house sells for a lower price than another in the street, you might think it remained worth less than the other later on.
Its only meant to be a guideline anyway.
Its a good service though, and I use it when researching the next dream house, and the next "final move".
The subsitutions are sometimes a bit annoying and they are occaisionly late without warning, but most times its good enough.
I have an HTC Wildfire. It is normally brilliant, but from time to time it freezes, I need to take the battery out and then reset the time and date. Very annoying especially as it happens every week or two.
Otherwise very intuitive phone. Better than my nokia brick

Have bought loads from them. Sign up with your email and wait for the offers. Don't bother with the normal price. have T-shirts, calendars, business cards. Quality is ok, not rubbish, not high end, but not bad for a few quid.

Used to be a customer. When I moved house I tried to transfer service. 3 months later no joy. Lots of cancelled engineers and false promises. Customer service all over the world. The South African team were more helpful than the Indian one. Not sure I ever spoke to some one else in the UK
My £100 from O2 never appeared, but have made lots of money from other websites I clicked on
Amazon is really good.
I like being able to sell unwanted books on the market place (the fees are a little expensive though, but better than eBay).
When buying, the times when there are problems they sort them out without hassle.
The gift list is a great idea and well implemented.
I have a business account with Paypal. Up till a month ago, the service was good, 5 out 5.
Since I started paying for things in USD from my GBP account, I have had my account limited 3 times in a month. They say my IP address has changed since the last time I used it, so clearly my account has been hacked. What a complete joke. What are passwords for then?
If you want to speak to them, its an 0870 number then an automated answer machine, then someone in India, then a 15 minute wait for an accounts manager in Ireland.
I just wish there was a proper alternative to them.
Service is generally pretty good, but don't bother contacting their customer services. I asked if I could get another user on my account to view my bills. Was told they would set up an email to them. Nothing happened, the notes did not mention that promise, their complaints website form is broken and they didn't reply to a complaint letter.
So phone connection + 3G: 5 out of 5
Customer service : -1 / 5,
so a total score of 2 / 5
When we used to used gumtree to find builders/tradesmen, the majority were hopeless or cowboys. With Check a trade, the quality is better, but its not perfect. Still get 2 or 3 quotes and still be wary.
Am struggling to post feedback on it. Had no problem when I reviewed someone good, but seems system struggles to process negative comments. One week since I tried to post a less than glowing review and it still hasn't appeared. A coincidence I am sure.
