A great dental practice, very professional (and thorough) and very friendly. Parking can be difficult here, so you may have to pay to park in Sainsburys and walk!

Always a pleasure to see everyone, I have been squeezed in several times for emergency treatment and always come out laughing from Danny. My whole family have been with this practice for years and wouldn't change

After my own dentist booking me an appointment in 2 weeks time !! And dentaline giving me antibiotics when I was in agony, other dentists saying they could not see me as I was not on their books, I tried TDC and they said to my relief they would see me if it was an emergency. I now am sitting in reception with an extremely happy numb mouth waiting to have a route canal treatment , when they actually don't have space on the list to see me. Now that's service .

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

Christ Church

High St, Tonbridge TN9 1SG, UK – 01732 770334

Large upstairs hall. Acoustics ok from one direction but poor in other. Kitchen facilities available but charges separately I believe.

Friendly and welcoming - with churches within a church! I have been to a variety of 'free church' URC services with a message from different speakers every week (10am) with songs modern & traditional. While the Redeemed Christian Church of God (Nigerian Pentecostal) at 11am has an enthusiastic and passionate worship style and the 6pm River Church - a charismatic house church - offers yet another way to meet with God. Come along and meet us! Not ready to worship? Try the LifeSprings Cafe weekdays 10-1pm for cheerful chat, fresh ground coffee and friendship.

St Andrew's church is an absolute gem. It may not look very much from the outside, but inside is so beautiful.

It is only open on Sundays for services that all start at 10am, but you will always receive a warm welcome here.

Great team, fast at their work and very reliable. Cleaned up after themselves and showed me all the relevant documents needed in their trade. Would highly recommend their services and I personally will be using them again. Thanks JR Metal and Waste

I saw JR Metal & Waste Recycling advertised and rang up to ask about clearing my garden. The price was good and the person on the phone was extremely helpful. The guys turned up on time, did a brilliant job, stuck to the quote provided and nothing was too much trouble. They promptly cleared away any mess and were incredibly friendly will use again and highly recommend.

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 Leigh

Pizza Express

91 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DR, UK – 01732 368787

Staff efficient, friendly and accommodating. Good food at reasonable prices.

Excellent and friendly service at Tonbridge Pizza Express. Food was brilliant as well.

Havet

150-, 152 High Street, Tonbridge TN9 1BB, UK – 01732 387387

My girlfriend took me here for Father's Day lunch and it was excellent. We'd pre-booked and were immediately shown to our table. Staff were efficient and polite despite it being relatively busy. The menu was wonderfully varied and of the array of lamb, chicken, aubergine and king prawn dishes we ordered, I couldn't pick a favourite - they were all so good! In fact, they were utterly delicious; a definite notch above simply being 'nice'. Prices were reasonable and portions were generous, but not over-facing. Highly recommended; I'm sure we'll be going back.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Tonbridge. The combination of very good food and very reasonable prices makes it very popular. There are a wide range of choices on the menu, with some dishes I haven't seen elsewhere. The staff are very helpful and courteous, and the open kitchen area makes for a nice atmosphere. It's well worth booking in advance, especially at weekends, as it's hard to get a seat otherwise! If you have not booked, you can try your luck getting a seat in the bar area. There are a few booth seats, which affords a little more privacy, otherwise the open layout has plenty of space for larger groups. Overall I highly recommend it!

Alishan Restaurant

149 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DH, UK – 01732 770616
