Dental Surgeries

Welldene Dental Clinic

Canterbury Rd, Ashford TN24 8JY, UK – 01233 624816

I was recommended by a family member to Welldene and I am very impressed with the staff & dentists, especially with Michelle who is the receptionist at Welldene, she is very helpful, polite and kind, she accommodates me with my work schedule when possible and she is excellent when it comes to my panics (always very nervous when it comes to dentists naturally), for me, Michelle is a role model for customer service and a asset to Welldene Dental Surgery. Also all of the dentists and hygienists I have had at Welldene have been excellent with myself and my teeth and could not recommend Welldene highly enough.

Emergency appointment; the staff were great and the dentist was excellent. I didn't have to have any work done but I was very impressed with all of the process.

Beaconsfield Dental Practice

St. Stephens Primary Care Health Centre/St. Stephens Walk, Ashford TN23 5AQ, UK – 01233 614336

I’m not a fan of going to the Dentist but this practice has made it far easier to bear. I can’t fault anything about this practice. The Reception staff are kind and actually return your calls and the Dentist I am under is brilliant. I say this after having many bad experiences with awful Dentists elsewhere! This is the first time I actually felt confident with the treatment plan and the removal of a tooth. I’ve Finally found a Dentist I trust! Thankyou.

Dental practice for NHS clients and private patients top floor. General practitioners doctors surgery ground floor. Also a handy pharmacy on-site also to the left of the entrance.

Oradent Dental Care - Ashford

169 Beaver Rd, Ashford TN23 7SG, UK – 01233 620359

Was seen over a couple of visits by the dentist Sunny (and her excellent nurse Helen) who was everything her name suggests, happy, smiley and radiant. She made me feel totally at ease and my teeth now feel brilliant compared to how they were before. Big thanks, highly Recommended.

What an absolutely lovely practice, with the most lovely staff. I was so miserable with my smile as I have gotten older. I was not sure what do to but these lovely people helped me so much by talking me through all options that was available to me to help restore my smile again! Thank you is not enough! See you in six month ladies

Hollington Surgery

Hollington Surgery/Blue Line Lane, Ashford TN24 8UN, UK – 01233 622361

Dr Mohammed continues to provide the extremely high standards of compassionate care set by his predecessors in this long established practice. I unreservedly recommend this surgery if you can get on the list.

Best surgery in Ashford!!. I have been a patient of this surgery for over 22 years and so have all of my family and I can't fault it!! From When Dr Davies was there to Dr Mohammed!!The Nurses, Physios and of course all the Receptionists They are all Brilliant!! Would not move from this surgery even if they payed me!!! Keep up the good work!!!xx :)

Kingsnorth Medical Practice

Ashford Rd, Kingsnorth, Ashford TN23 3ED, UK – 01233 610140

I feel very lucky to be a patient at this practice. Everyone there from the Doctors, Nurses & Admin staff are very professional, thoughtful and kind. I have had occasion to use the triage system and it works really well and I know that I am going to get a phone back from a Doctor within a few hours and if I need to be seen it will be the same day. In my previous practice I could wait for up to three weeks for an appointment. I would be happy to be treated by any one of the excellent doctors at this surgery and appreciate all their hard work and service they provide for their patients in what is difficult times for the NHS.

I feel very privileged to be a patient at Kingsnorth Medical Practice. I have always been treated with dignity, understanding and respect, and given undivided attention during any appointments. Like all services within the NHS, the staff are under tremendous pressure, but I have always found the staff at the Practice to be welcoming, polite and supportive. I have great respect for each and every one of the Doctors, Nursing Staff, those within managerial positions and the many staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes providing us with such an outstanding Practice. Thank you all.

Household Waste Recycling Centre

Really helpful staff. On Friday I had a large bag of hard core and Martin came straight over and asked "DO you need a hand?" Then on Saturday exactly the same again - Martin came straight over and repeated the assistance. I do appreciate good service especially as I have experience of taking refuse to certain sites in Buckinghamshire and the experience is the exact opposite where the staff act as inspectors only and won't lift a finger to help. Ashford Centre seems to be very well run.

Surprisingly well managed and very friendly staff. In other recycling centres you need to have utility bills and proof of council tax paid

Eureka Park, Ashford TN25 4BN, UK – 01233 646037

Much improved over the last 12 months. Would recommend. Decent portion sizes. Service is relaxed and friendly but not somewhere to go if you're in a rush though.

Great place for a relaxing meal or drinks. Good mix of seating indoors and there's outside seating if the weather is nice. Friendly service and great food.


30 North St, Ashford TN24 8JR, UK – 01233 666945

Good food. Friendly service and staff. Felt welcomed. Quite squished in. Was an extremely hot day and the air conditioning was obviously struggling (if there was any ☺️). It was sweltering.

We came here on a very hot evening and there were no windows open or air con so it was quite stuffy. The staff were nice though and the portions were very generous and the food was tasty. I had the scallops from the specials board for my main and they were a bit overcooked. If I come again I will try something else and hopefully change my rating.

Everest Inn Ashford

Saturn House, 113 Station Rd, Ashford TN23 1PJ, UK – 01233 643643

The food was delicious. The ambiance is nice, they play music to make it feel like your almost in Nepal. The dishes are amazing and great to share. The prices are fair, not cheap, but not overly expensive. The desserts are a must have. Really enjoyed my meal, would totally go again. The coffee was also great!

I really liked the Everest inn. It was quiet when we went but the service and food were of a very good standard. The food was very flavoursome and I will definitely go back.

Great, highly recommended childcare, clean, safe and spacious building and garden area, lovely staff including management, my daughter settled in straight away and shes under 2!!!, no issues or concerns, took her out of childminding and now my mind is just at rest when shes there! Can ring anytime to find out how your child is doing and see your child on the camera behind reception once you've left the room. Makes you feel confident in them as they have nothing to hide! Its not my local nursery but they are that excellent and of a great standard that I'm willing to travel a little further from home and know my daughter is safe, comfortable and happy!

If you would like the little people you love the most in your life to be looked after like you, as a mum, would do it yourself, then you have arrived to the right place. Lucy, Carol, Diane, Lesley and their AMAZING TEAM, definitely go the extra mile to make sure your mind is at rest while you are at work. I cannot be grateful enough for ALL these INCREDIBLE PEOPLE have done and currently do for us. YOU ARE WORTH MILLIONS!! xxx

Primary and Secondary Schools

Great Chart Primary School

Hoxton Cl, Ashford TN23 5LB, UK – 01233 620040

All my children have done well at this friendly, local, excellent school

my first time at the school was very scary but after a while it got better. my worst class was with miss filmore and she was so strict!! the head teacher was very strict who was miss duncalf but she retired. thank god! now the deputy is headteacher, miss pang and she is awsome!

East Stour Primary School

East Stour Primary School, Earlsworth Rd, Willesborough, Ashford Kent TN24 0DW, UK – 01233 630820

Nice school and nice teachers, but can be really disorganized at times,which cause a lot of issues with ur planning.

A really lovely school - a nice size for a town and a good alternative to the huge Willesborough primary. It has good size playing field - rare these days! The kids all seem happy and polite. There is a breakfast club and an after school club. I'd recommend packed lunches as the dinners are not good. They lack nutrition and flavour and my children will eat almost anything, so I was amazed they were so bad - especially for over £2!! Not the schools fault but I think anyone with kids going would want to know. Other than that they organise great trips and clubs.

Ashford Prep School

Ashford Rd, Great Chart, Ashford TN23 3DJ, UK – 01233 620493

I have two daughters who both attended the Prep School and excelled in every aspect of the school life. Within every area, the school encouraged them to participate, showing that the ethos of finding the 'best in everyone' and Adventurous Learning is certainly true! They both went onto the secondary section of the school and have achieved amazing results through GCSE's and A Levels. The teaching and pastoral care at both sites is second to none. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of Ashford School for their children, not just for the academia but for sports and the creative arts too.

My son attends the nursery at Ashford School and absolutely loves it. He benefits from an incredibly wide range of rich learning experiences provided by the excellent nursery teaching team and the spacious facilities. The school maintains a strong ethos matched with high standards and their adventurous learning atmosphere is evident everywhere you go. My wife and I are very happy with the school indeed.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Ashford School

East Hill, Ashford TN24 8PB, UK – 01233 625171

I love the school because of the people I met including friends, teachers and boarding stuff. Teachers of the subjects I am currently studying are very good and helpful. However, some stuff in boarding can be very unreasonable which can ruin the experience in the school but obviously, not everyone in boarding is like that, there are some very nice people inside boarding houses and I can definitely say I’ll miss them. Food is okay but sometimes not good at all, especially in the evenings which is bad for boarders because we need to eat in the dining hall on daily basis. Rules aren’t that strict for sixth form which is good because it prepares students for life outside the school. I am really glad I moved here because if you think about it in general, only good memories come up. I would definitely say that this school is so much better comparing to the one I used to study before in Somerset and I’m so glad I moved

For those guys who are shined under the red flag of 5 stars,this school, I mean, is the one that u have to confirm using the speed of Bolt after receiving the offer. The life there was the second paradise for me( not sure if I will see the first one). Why? Because u never get ill here(stop talking Paracetamol Ustym); u never be cursed here( in English); and for the name of my previous agent, u never see too many Chinese or Russian here(but Ukrainien). Just joking, but really, the teachers were very very nice(especially for English, Biology, Chem, Phys, Math, History, IT, EAL, ) Good luck for those new-comings! And pls bring my words to Mrs Miller that I got full mark for my biology.

Goldwyn School

Godinton Lane,, Ashford TN23 3BT, UK – 01233 622958

I went here to pick up some essentials for my truck, but I ended up getting the essentials and some very exotic crisps! My name is Miguel and I like exotic things, so this came to a surprise to me! However, I had trouble getting out because of people being very annoying with their cars! Me no like. Thanks for reading

My son has been going to this School since he was statemented at the age of 11. He is now nearly fifteen. The School and teachers are truly fantastic. Goldwyn is one of the few schools that take GCSE's which is obviously a massive plus. They have just received an Outstanding by Ofsted and it is well deserved. They couldn't do more for the children, fantastic school that I couldn't recommend highly enough, and I did visit all special schools within the area before sending my lad here. You wouldn't be disappointed.
