Barclays Bank

708 London Rd, Aylesford ME20 6BN, UK – 0345 734 5345

A great local branch and the staff are always helpful. However, parking is extremely limited, which makes visiting a painful experience.

Good bank

NatWest Bank

718 London Rd, Aylesford ME20 6AN, UK

Handy local branch rather than having to go into Maidstone town centre. Popular as there has always been other customers on each of my visits. Staff have always been helpful, friendly and have assisted me in using the new self service machines. There is however, still the option of using the "human" cashier if you prefer. Good open plan layout and easy access for wheelchair users. Parking is on the road outside but has always been busy on my visits. There is a free car park at the rear with designated Natwest spaces.

Good friendly bank

Building Societies


69 High St, West Malling ME19 6NA, UK – 0800 554 0860

Its a building society which, as it's name suggests, has branches all over Kent, even on Sheppey. Being a bit of a nonconformist, I don't use it for a mortgage. Instead, I use it as a bank, as it has a very handy ATM.

Kings Hill Dental

My husband and daughter were singing the praises of Simon's practice - I am a very nervous patient and hadn't been to a dentist for some years and my teeth were in a poor state. I decided to make an appointment with Simon and his kindness and expertise were outstanding. I have complete trust in his advice and can recommend this practice to anyone wanting a thoroughly professional and caring service. All my family would endorse this. Fiona Gillard - Jan 2012

Highly recommended

West Malling Group Practice

116 High St, West Malling ME19 6LX, UK – 01732 870212

I know that WMGP have had problems with the booking appointments system, but I've recently used the practice twice (with the new system of phone triage) and I've found the service to be great. Last week, I had to arrange for a duty doctor to call, to then send out a home visit for my elderly neighbour and the system worked perfectly. Today, I used the system for myself. I was called back quickly and given a prescription via the phone, which I'm sure saved time for both me and left the appointments at the surgery for people who need to be seen by a doctor. I've been a patient at the surgery for 14 years and have never been unhappy with the actual doctors or nurses, who have always been kind, professional and attentive. I know it has been frustrating getting an appointment in the past but I think that the fact they've recently changed everything shows they are listening to the patient feedback and are doing their best to correct things.

Kings Hill Opticians

2 Liberty Square, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4AU, UK – 01732 875544

I've been going to Kings Hill Opticians for a very long time and the service from everyone has always been excellent. Last year I was recommended the copper mesh glasses to help with headaches and fatigue being exacerbated by working at the computer. These have been a great help and make a noticeable difference when spending time on the screen. Would highly recommend the practice.

So happy to have transferred my eyecare to Kings Hill. I have never had a more thorough examination, with everything explained clearly. I have a chronic condition and feel that they have tailored my glasses to my needs and lifestyle. There is no hard sell, what is important to them is to get something that will give you the best vision possible. A change in frame shape and correct fitting will help the issues I have been having, something that had never been discussed before at other opticians. The staff is friendly, patient, kind and professional and are really good at what they do. Thank you.

Kent Medical Imaging

Suite 33, 40 Churchill Square, West Malling ME19 4YU, UK – 01732 897666

Great experience. I went for an internal pelvic ultrasound. The waiting area was very homely. The staff were lovely. The room itself was dimmed lighting and didn't have that bright clinical feel to it at all. Price was great. Would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful ultrasound and bone density clinic with private practice. The sonographers Jane and Fiona are both lovely people who have supported wife through her diagnosis of poly-cystic ovaries and our now 18 weeks pregnancy highly recommend, one of the most reasonably priced clinics this side of London & Kent.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around West Malling

Sino Restaurant

10 Liberty Square, Kings Hill, West Malling ME19 4AU, UK – 01732 872888

A really nice restaurant, very good service and very good food. We went for a birthday and the staff really went above and beyond to make it special. They have a wide variety of food for everyone. We had two vegans in the group, one person who does like spicy food and a couple of people who don't like certain veg - so quite the problem group. But they accommodated well for everyone, taking the time to explain the foods to us. Will definitely visit again. The place itself is well spaced out so you don't have to listen to the table next to you talking. Very impressed.

Really nice food, probably best Chinese I've had. Bit more expensive that most Chinese restaurants/takeaways but it's worth it. Shame to see the food hygiene rating is 2/5 (Jan 2017), had I noticed this before visiting, I wouldn't have gone. But it was very clean inside and food was hot and tasted fresh. Glad we ordered and will order again soon. Maybe should have another visit for council to rate them again for food hygiene level.

Imperial Dynasty Restaurant

18-20 High St, West Malling ME19 6QR, UK – 01732 840402

The food was good but the service was aggressive. Although great if you are in a hurry. We were rushed in and out and our main arrived immediately after our starter. As one waiter walked away, another came with the mains. I was told they needed the table by 9 but we were out by 8. Shame, as previously I have enjoyed it. And they were much nicer with the groups. We both felt they wanted to get us out asap and even started resetting the table while we were finishing our wine. Maybe stick to a takeaway.

Lovely food.. Helpful staff.. Nice experience. Very busy on a Friday and Saturday so be warned. Worth it though 😀

Franks Restaurant and Mussel Bar

53-57 High St, West Malling ME19 6QH, UK – 01732 843247

Always a fantastic meal with wonderful ambience. A monthly trip for us, sometimes more! The wife loves the mussels and I the steak. Highly recommend!

I have been to Franks twice now and have mixed feelings. The mussels are great, steak good, but the lobster is awful. On my first occasion I sent my lobster back it was so tough, second occasion I foolishly ordered it again, also tough but I resigned myself that Frank's are unfortunately not great at cooking lobster.

Children's House Montessori

Birling Village Hall, Snodland Rd, Birling, Maidstone ME19 5JG, UK – 07464 232603

My daughter has been at the nursery for the last two years and thoroughly enjoyed her time. Randa the Principal takes the time to understand each child's needs as well as personalities - we've seen an amazing progression in our daughter's interest in learning as well as communication. Thoughtful preparation for school has been welcome. Overall I struggled to find a nursery which offered such a wide variety of activities including; French, cooking, dance, yoga, owl visits! All of which has been embraced and enjoyed. The setting is very easy for parking, the garden is great fun with plenty of engaging activities including mini hospital and veg patch! The staff are lovely and approachable with any questions or concerns. Overall a small, friendly, personal, safe and caring nursery. Thank you for looking after our little one so well and starting her education journey.

My little boy has settled here so quickly, I would recommend Children's House to anyone. There are lots of lovely activities indoor and out in a small, intimate, village environment. All the children are lovely and the staff are excellent. Parents are regularly invited for extra activities such as Easter egg hunts and reptile shows.... it really is an ideal place for kids before they start school. There is a big focus on independence and within weeks of starting my son was doing so much more for himself, such as taking his shoes and coat on and off. It's not a hassle, he wanted to do it and he loves doing things 'all by himself'. Thrilled to have this lovely place on my doorstep.

Best leavers ever, limos, party, real guns for our end of year play that actually squirt! (We did bugsy malone) Could get into Skinners (very posh school) which is one of the best in England

It is a great school to go to. I now go to MGGS. This school is a great place to learn and does not tolerate bullies. I found it hard to leave all my friends that I had made and all of the lovely teachers there. A GREAT school to go to!

Public & Preparatory Schools

The Malling School

Beech Rd, East Malling, West Malling ME19 6DR, UK – 01732 840995

This school recieves a lot of hate and exaggerated news about it.It used to be really bad, as everyone points out so clearly,but now its a really good school with amazing staff and pupils. Obviously theres always some kids that are chavs and bullies and just disruptive,but all schools have that. for example a while ago many pupils in mgs and oakwood were found with weapons in school, yet no one makes judgement from that due to it being a grammar school,its just people like to point out the few pupils that behave like that and make their judgement of the entire school from it. this school has improved so much more and a lot more people have realised it.

An amazing school with amazing teachers and opportunity's. Such as taking a latin Gcse 2 years early!
