Default Water problem

The water coming into my house seems to be pulsing rather than flowing
continuously. The cold water tap in the kitchen works fine, no
spluttering or anything, but gently pulses. There is also a regular
dull banging sound coming from any pipes directly connected to the
mains, consistent with the pulsing of the water coming out of the
kitchen tap. This noise, which sounds a bit like a heartbeat, remains
constant regardless of what taps are running.

The next door neighbours don't seem to have this problem. Thames Water
say there's been no disruption to the pipes in the area. Any thoughts
as to what could be causing the irregular flow?

Thanks in advance

Are all the pipes (particularly but not exclusively plastic ones) securely
fastened down and have you avoid the use of any flexible connectors?
