Felmores Dental Care

1 Lanhams, Felmores, Basildon SS13 1PN, UK – 01268 726789

This dental surgery has for me at least, always been extremely polite, helpful and very caring in the service that they provide. I am so glad I went to this dentist instead of the butchers that are in Pitsea town centre.

Friendly reception staff, great customer service, was seen immediately as a new NHS patient signing up to the dentist and resolved my problems. two appointments on two days. Highly recommended

Pitsea Dental Surgery

Dental Surgery, 4 Burns Ave, Basildon SS13 3AG, UK – 01268 552137

Staff are very attentive. Nobody enjoys the dentists but the staff try to ease the pain. Dentists are friendly.. Could do with some reading material in the waiting room. Health and safety gone mad.

Never have to wait long to see someone the desk staff and the dental nurses are great with me as I am an extremely nervous patient! Being a wheelchair user I find it very accessible

Murree Medical Centre

Pattiswick Square, Basildon SS14 2RJ, UK – 01268 520552

Absolutely wonderful young lady at reception. Can't praise her enough. Had to call her for directions as I don't know the area. The website for this medical centre had directions option. These directions are wrong. They do need to add the full address/street number to actually find it. The directions took me the opposite direction. Upon finally finding the centre, only by asking directions 3 times, I was actually told by a young man that I was parked outside it! It looks like a derelict building. Overgrown shrubbery and weeds to nearly the height of the building and windows caged up. No clear signs to say it was the surgery. Absolutely a massive shame, because inside was exceptionally clean, greater by the wonderful young lady, altho she had to stand and move from her desk to see the front door. (Might consider moving the window/desk/reception for security and safety of staff. Not all that walk into a medical centre are friendly. Over all. I can't thank the practice for all their help. Wonderful staff. Please if the council are responsible for the outside grounds, shame on you. Fix these grounds, these guys are wonderful. To the lady on reception I thank you for your patience in helping me finally locating you and your kind professional nature your a credit.

Lovely staff! Lovely doctor!

This surgery is fantastic. I moved from Aegis Medical Centre when my Dr retired. I thought they were good but Long Riding is 100% better. Very professional & very thorough. The receptionist are also very good and friendly. Excellent practice.

The Surgery

91 Rushbottom Ln, South Benfleet, Benfleet SS7 4EA, UK – 01268 209269

I have been going to this surgery for two years now, and have nothing but good things to say about it. The receptionists are really helpful and courteous, always do their best to help and it is very rare to not get an appointment. As for the Doctors and Nurses themselves, they are excellent, professional and (something rare I find in Doctors) always speak clearly and concisely to ensure you understand. Wouldn't go anywhere else!!!

Excellent surgery. Very caring and competent doctors and nurses. Reception staff always helpful. Never being let down

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.

Find Recycling Centres


Basildon SS16 4UH, UK

Far to busy for layout and poorly signed as to what goes where, guys helpful where possible, to many trader vehicles, vans with large loads should be separated up to allow cars a faster track and help clear queues, sort of like fast track tills at check outs. Generally clean and tidy.

The area for dumping rubbish is kept clean and tidy very large skips for rubbish all marked for household rubbish /metal and cardboard they have a seperate area for white goods and other electrical goods can get very busy

Total Waste Management Ltd

Hovefields Ave, Basildon SS13 1EB, UK – 01279 444406

A no nonsense professional operation. They were on top of the house keeping and the yard was well ordered and tidy. I arrived early and was booked in to load a 20ft container.

I hired a skip from Total Waste last month and their service is brilliant. After I called to enquire, they delivered the skip the next day and even offered if there was anything immediate that I needed help loading into it. I was allowed to keep the skip for as long as I wanted - I just called when I had finished with it. I kept it for a week. They came to pick it up the day after I notified them I was ready for it to be collected. Again, the guys were really friendly. What's more, I got a very good price. Would definitely recommend and use again

Amazing quality! Incredibly good food and excellent service. Staff are really friendly and the restaurant is clean with a very nice atnosphere. Much better than similar local restaurants and takeaways. Highly recommended.

Very nice food, only a takeaway meal this time, but lovely and hot, speedily served by very attentive waiters, will certainly be going back again.

Basil Spice

2, Adams Business Centre, Cranes Farm Rd, Basildon SS14 3JF, UK – 01268 523526

Again as per usual. Food on time piping hot. I have been ordering for over 4 months every week on Tuesday’s or Thursday’s( discount days) and yet Basil spice have not let down my expectations. Occasionally I pop into eat with my wife and I have been made so welcome and never hurried like some other Indian places I have been to in the past. Good luck guys and see you soon ( Grease night).

This is a MUST for Indian food... when you've got Indian people eating in there you know it's good.... it's absolutely the freshest food I've eaten. I've had many Indians meal in the past, this place is the one for me and my family now. I'd give this 10/10 fairly priced great service exceptional quality. Thank you Basil Spice you need to creat LOYALTY CARD.

Beefeater Watermill

Felmores, East Mayne, Basildon SS13 1BW, UK – 01268 522227

A pleasant Beefeater restaurant, with a modern interior and plenty of car park spaces. The inside is fairly clean, perhaps a little rough around the edges, and has a nice atmosphere. Service is good, but not spectacular, have not been wowed or seen/received anything above par before. Biggest disappointment is the food, it is very underwhelming for the price you pay. Been several times and while the food is always well presented, I have always left feeling a bit let down. Portions aren't great and neither is the quality (again, for the price). Last time I went the menu had been changed and there was not a great selection either.

Got there on Sunday about 2 o'clock half empty surprised but happy limited menu but ordered and waited and waited and waited eventually the food arrived, my steak medium rare turned up rare no one asked how theeal was no asking if we wanted extra chips. Won't be going back for a while service poor food average the place never got above half full
