Today I had the most amazing experience at this surgery whilst having a vasectomy. The staff were very friendly and professional, and the surgeon put me at ease with his professional manner and personality. He was even skillful enough to have a laugh with me mid procedure when I started having a giggling fit (I'm very ticklish down there). Gentlemen ,if you're thinking about having the snip , I highly recommend this surgery!!!

Flt Sergeant John Hannah VC at 18 was the youngest ever airman to receive the Victoria Cross. In 1940 he was flying in a bombing raid against invasion barges off the coast of Belgium. The Hampden was hit by flak and caught fire. Thanks to John successfully putting out the fires the plane made it back to England. His burns were treated in a hospital near Lincoln. It was his last mission, he was de-mobbed on a full pension a year later.

Gypsum Close Recycling Centre

I come here regularly and think it's a good set up catering for just about everything that needs recycling. It's well designed and has a good area to park up and empty out your vehicle. The staff are helpful and friendly and you can pick up your recycling bags at the same time!

Good facilities with long openening hours. Unfortunatley I must have gone on a day when the staff were having a bad day as one in particular was less than helpful, with a bad attitude to go with it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Leicester

Everest Dine

61 Belgrave Gate, Leicester LE1 3HR, UK – 0116 251 0555

We have been here before and chose it to host a wedding lunch for about 100 close family and friends. We had a fabulous time. The staff looked stretched at times but were good at looking after all our needs. The food was really good and all the dishes had their own distinct flavour, clearly the sign of a good chef. Would highly recommend. Well done guys.

Nice place to dine with a impressive ambience.. and very high quality napali food. We just love it.. would love to visit again to explore more food quality is great no doubt.. but the only complaint we felt portions are bit less for sharing.. the starter are not massive to be shared between 2-3 adults.. we like momos but felt portions were bit less the king pron curry dish is nice.. the overall place is nice.. good royal feel the service was brilliant as well.. good place to dine and hang out with family and friends.. will score 8 out of 10.. Place to improve would be to increase the size of meal by a bit as compared to the cost of the items.. and increase customer base..we went in lunch hours did not find much crowd as compared to the size of the place..

Restaurante Madeira

60 Woodgate, Leicester LE3 5GF, UK – 0116 233 3401

Lovely place with great food. Prawns in garlic are absolutely delicious! Highly recommended! ❤️

Food is fantastic, don't be fooled by the location! Chef is very friendly, talkative and approachable, and very knowledgeable about his dishes. Well worth a visit!


Highcross, Shires Lane, Leicester LE1 4FP, UK – 0116 251 9672

Arrived, seated immediately. Staff were very friendly, and the food came out fast and well prepared. It wasn't very busy at the time of my visit so the food flew out of the kitchen. I didn't even have time to finish my starter before my food arrived! The location could be a bit better, it's a bit tucked away behind the cinema, but the interior is nice as in any other Nando's. If you're craving some chicken, this is a good location for it!

Very clean and tidy restaurant. The decoration is fantastic. Also, the staff is very friendly, they ask if you need something and how was the food. They prepare the food quickly. And everything is delicious like any other Nando's restaurant. Nando's is always a great option for family and friends who want to enjoy a great time together eating a delicious chicken. I highly recommend it.

Good school but a good walk uphill

This is a great school my son went here, now my granddaughter is here.

Abbey Primary Community School

109 Ross Walk, Leicester LE4 5HH, UK – 0116 266 1809

I would like to give rating 3 to this school because staff Is not smily and friendly especially gujrati teachers with the parents. Most importantly, I always notice when I drop and pick my child from school ....teacher never ever make sure if child has entered the class or teacher has handover the child to the parents at pick up time. Make a rule for parents to stand in queue then everyone will follow. Secondly, they open the gate at pick up time at exact 330 pm which should open before 10 min, that can help parent to see what activity is going on in the class. Third point , school timing is really very very long. We most parent want it must to be 850-3:00pm or 830am to 230. And on every Friday which seems a cool and relax day , must got off at 1 pm ( 850am -1 pm). So after getting a break of getting fresh at home , children can participate in activities in the school which play after school. Especially FSY -1/2 ( reception class) to year 3 timings must be less. Thanks

Good I love the shcool the teachers are very freindy

Taylor Road Primary School

53 Taylor Rd, Leicester LE1 2JP, UK – 0116 262 4597

My daughter started at taylor rd primary in foundation(nursery).When we moved to another area she had to leave taylor rd primary due to catchment area policies within LCC. You could tell that she was unhappy with her new school as every morning there was constant moaning,she would hardly talk about her day and almost everyday drag her heals on the walk to school let alone the non existent interaction with teachers at the end of the school day. This as a parent would really hurt dropping your child off knowing full well that she is unhappy.A whole year went by and we put her name down for taylor rd primary fortunately due to expansion a new class in year1 opened and my daughter got her place. The Difference in her is unbelievable she skips into school,looking forward to breakfast club bright and bubbly as a child should be. All in all this is an outstanding school with outstanding staff ,from management ,teachers and support staff which i find are all equally approachable.

Capable and hands on Senior leadership management, excellent, helpful and friendly staff: teachers, academic support staff , office staff and non academic staff all play their part to make the school an excellent and nurturing environment for our children thus the extraordinary performance of the school. I recommend it to everyone but it comes with a Warning attached : if you'll get placement for your child in the first place.
