“Plenty of choice - easy parking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Can't find any real faults but I find it hard to get enthusiastic about shopping. Easy to find your way around and adequate parking

“Nicely Laid out, some good shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice to pull off the motorway for some retail therapy!
This is nicely laid out with plenty of food choice and some good brands represented. personally I would love to find here a Molton Brown outlet but they are few and far between!

“Worth a visit if you are in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

But don't waste any fuel going out of your way to visit !
The car park is inadequate for the amount of cars, people end up parking on the kerbs and around the roundabout. I walked past 10 disabled bays that were full with only 3 cars displaying a disabled badge.

The retail park is about a quarter of the size of Bicester - quite small !!

“Boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Not a great deal of shops, barring the usual M&S and a Adidas store. There's also a Game and Nike store too, not a much more. The food court is fast food heaven and features a subway and a potatoe place, boring....

“Not worth a diversion off the M1”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Lots of closed stores. Next & M&S had mainly clothes made especially for the outlet stores rather than properly discounted goods. Not worth a diversion, nowhere near as good as Cheshire Oaks
