“Boring”
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”
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

“Well laid out”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

All the outlets you'd expect if you've visited others in the McCarthur chain. Go have a coffee in Thorntons, it was lovely.

“Ok not very big”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Okay to spend an hour or so, some really good shops, would have been good with a bit more variety. Some really good shops, Adidas, Barbour, game etc, just could have been better with a few more shops
