Excellent dentist, really friendly and helpful. Great with kids, accommodating to their needs. Great with adults too, I’ve been coming here for years and still have all my teeth.

Having not been to the dentist in 10 years and having a gum problem, Alton dental were extremely proficient and quickly got me in to sort the problem out. All staff were extremely professional and friendly and always had a smile on their faces! Weirdly makes going to the dentist not so bad 👍🏻 Would highly recommend.

Watercress House Dental

1 The Windmills, St Mary's Close, Alton GU34 1EF, UK – 01420 544408

Marcello did a fantastic job of filling the gaps between my upper and lower teeth. I can certainly recommend this procedure as it prevents a lot of food getting stuck between the teeth and aesthetically is a great improvement. His work is always very precise. He is gentle and has a very good eye for detail. I’m delighted.

I am writing this review on behalf of my Mum as she isn't techno minded, but wanted to review this marvellous dentist. In her own words:- "Having an emergency of a front tooth falling out, just before Easter when I planned to visit family, rushing straight to my dentist I was very lucky to find him in the reception. Unbeknown to me it was his lunch break. However, without any hesitation he immediately agreed to undertake the repair and do it straight away, forgoing his lunch. He is a superb dentist and the kindness and care shown was second to none. I must say he is always so kind and did a wonderful repair on my tooth. His name is Dr Marcello Tulone. The practice as a whole is a wonderful place". By Mrs Elizabeth Manley.

Beautiful old building. Plenty of interesting historic features. Bullet holes in the door from the English Civil War, 15th century paintings on a pillar, carved Norman capitals.

Needs a good clean and quite bare inside thanks to Puritan whitewashing but the fine location and civil war history are notable. Norman core inside, not really detectable but very old.

Alton Household Waste Recycling Centre

Omega Park, Alton GU34 2QE, UK – 01420 544067

Good center. People are helpful.

It used to be quite excellent, only letting me down when I turned up with about 400 asbestos slates off my garage roof... I had to take them to Basingstoke. But now they've started charging for even small quantities of rubble and plasterboard. I'm gradually refurbishing our house, and now I have very little I can take without being charged. So, I break stuff down and put it in my wheelie bin at home, over a period of a few weeks. They should be offering free "Fly tipping" guides.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Holybourne

Pizza Express

5 Market Street, Alton, Hampshire GU34 1HD, UK – 01420 89839

I’m a fan of Pizza Express, tasty food, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere. This is a good location, close to the large car park and just off the high street. I visited here on a Friday at midday with my wife and small kids, we received a warm greeting and were seated quickly. The place was pretty quiet so we got to seat wherever we wanted. There was some sort of deal on as my wife ordered a pizza and a soft drink and it was less than £7, what a bargain. I ordered a pizza but requested the base be changed, when the food arrived it was on the wrong base. No biggy, I was hungry and ate it anyway. It was delicious. Good selection of food and drinks, including a decent non-alcoholic beer. Overall, really happy with the trip, the staff were great with our small kids. If the food order was correct I would have given this place full marks!

Lunch with friends, service overall not bad but let down when only 3 of the 4 starters ordered arrived at the same time. A couple of us had almost finished our starter by the time the 4th was served. After that, no problems, indeed service was excellent. The food here in Alton is always good, & lunch was no exception.

River Kwai

3A Cross and Pillory Ln, Alton GU34 1HL, UK – 01420 87796

We love this Thai restaurant as a family. The owner is super friendly and welcoming. The food is very authentic and is delicious. The decor has not changed since the 80's but it does give it that bit of a retro feel now. The prices are extremely reasonable. There is a public car park to the rear and we have always managed to park. Overall, this is a great place to eat and we are always recommending it to friends and family.

Great friendly Thai restaurant. The food is good and fantastic value. We keep going back that says it all.

Frango Grill

1 Cross and Pillory Ln, Alton GU34 1HL, UK – 01420 768100

Love it! Staff are courteous and friendly. The food... flame grilled chicken. How can you go wrong?! Great service; great home delivery; great food.

Good food, bit tame on spice. Food takes quite a bit longer than I had expected. Spicy rice side dish was completely unspicy and a third the size I expected. Very good chicken!

Eggar's School

London Rd, Holybourne, Alton GU34 4EQ, UK – 01420 541194

Joined in 2011 the school was good and learnt a lot. After about 2 years with a new Headteacher the school took a turn for the worst and has continued to fail students including me and my brother. It's a pot luck draw on which teachers you get, get a good one and you will exceed expectations but get a bad one and expect to fail. Their continued employment of bad teachers will ultimately be the downfall of this school. However longer standing teachers continue to help the students exceed. Finally the label may say a science school but this department is appalling and needs a serious revamp both department and teachers. The school however exceeds in other areas such as Further Maths courses (the experienced team of mathematicians), English and ICT.

Best school ever. When there was an issue they let me know immediately when it happened they didn't just leave it to the end of the day.

It's Also Such A Brilliant Place To Just Stroll Around. An All-Around. Brill Prep School!
