This is a large Asda store which has recently been refurbished and extended to include a mezzanine floor for clothes and household items. It sells a good range of George clothes, CDs, DVDs, books, stationery and toys as well as a huge range of foods.
There is a good fresh produce department and bakery as well as other specialist counters.
They have good offers around the store and are one of the cheapest supermarkets in the area.
There is a large car park at the back of the store - you have to pay £1 to park, but this is refunded when you hane your ticket in at the chckout.
I have been shopping in this Asda since it was first opened, and generally it is my supermarket of choice as it is well located and stocks a wide range of goods that I enjoy.
Another reviewer mentioned that this Asda used to be open 24 hours, but as I recall this branch of Asda has never had 24 hour opening. The hours are very good in my opinion, it is open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 10pm Saturdays 8am to 9pm and the normal Sunday 10am to 4pm.
Asda has recently had a make over and now has a second floor where all the clothes, electricals, DVD's and home stuff is located.
I do my weekly shop in Asda as generally they stock the widest range of the types of things I like to buy including a very good selection of salad and vegetables, as well as a wide range of meat.
The staff are normally pretty helpful both at the tills and customer service desk, and generally the items I want are in stock.
Generally a good supermarket, but not where i currently choose to do my monthly shop. Like another user has mentioned, this Asda tend to be out of stock of many items these days. Generally a good store, but advisable to go in at quieter periods to make sure you can get what you want.
Recently refurbished, this branch now has a large (and very good!) homewares and clothing department!
This is a big store in Fratton. It used to be 24 hours but is not so now so though it's open late you should check its opening hours if you have late night munchies.
This store recently had a refit and they've added an upstairs section which contains clothes, TV/electrical and home furnishings / homewares. This has freed up some space below and they've reorganised the shape of the aisles - most of which are filled with toiletries.
This is a very busy store and there often queues snaking back some distance - this can make navigating around all the aisles difficult. Shelves are sometimes bare if you come at busy times.
There's an instore bakey in common with other ASDAs but the cheese deli is all prepacked stuff.
The car parking is £1 for two hours but you get a refund when you spend £2+
This Asda is the biggest Supermarket with central Portsmouth. It has plenty of parking and is really easy to get to.
It has a pizza counter, which is one of the best places to get a really loaded huge pizza to cook at home.
It had a hot meat counter and does hot chickens, sausages, ribs and stuff.
It has a fish counter that has quite a good selection.
I can't understand why it doesn't have a cheese and meat deli counter like all the other supermarkets, as it's prepacked stuff isn't that great.
There is also an adsa pharmacy and toilet facilities but there isn't a cafe (but there is one in the bridge centre).
There are always ques and at the weekends and at Christmas they are so long that half the isles are difficult to shop down.
Lately they've been having a lot of stuff out of stock. They are expensive for a loaf of bread, but do nice flowers for your wife or mum!
They have recently refurbished this store and it now has a mezzanine floor which houses the clothes, homeware and electrical items. It is now easy to find everything on this top floor but during the refurbishment process the ground floor was a mess! It was very difficult to find things and although the floor is finished it is still hard to find what you want in the refrigerated sections. I am sure when it is finished it will all run smoothly.
Overall a well stocked store that is generally clean and tidy.
I find that I can normally complete my weekly shop in this branch of Asda without many items I need being out of stock, though recently there seem to be some problems with various fresh vegetables being out of of stock quite regularly, but other than this stock levels are very good, and this branch of Asda is very good at have items on special offer in stock most of the time.
The recent refit has allowed for more room at the tills, which i think is a major advantage. Also there is extra space for clothing, home wares, and other non food ranges though these ranges are still not as large as at some other bigger Asda stores.
The Asda in store bakery has the biggest range and is the best value for money of any supermarket in Portsmouth in my opinion, with very tasty rolls, and cakes etc.
Car parking facilities are good, it's easily accessible by public transport and in a central location which is good if you are getting a taxi.
A really good Asda store in Portsmouth. it has very recently been renevated to include a mezzanine level which now holds all the cds, dvds, home products - i.e towels etc and a good range of male, female and children's clothing. There is a large section downstairs for stationary, books, magazines and gifts. There is now a massive range of christmas goodies - snacks, chocolates, stocking fillers. I think the prices are really reasonable and the store has a great range of fresh products, hot chickens and homeware goods. Oh forgot to mention all the electrical goods for sale. Basically has almost everything you need in your home! the service is always pleasant too.
This large asda store is located in the Bridge shopping centre which means you can pop in a couple of other shops
as well when doing your weekly food shop. I always shop in Asda because I find it good value for money. This
store usually has lots of offers, which tempts me to buy more than I went in for. Most of the staff are friendly
and will chat to you at the till, especially if it is quiet. At busy times they try to control the queues which
helps bring some order to it. The store sells a wide range of goods including household items, clothes and dvds
and cds, as well as food and drink. This means you can get almost everything you need in one place. The store has
recently been modernised and most of the non food items have been moved upstairs. The only drawback with this is
that I can't always be bothered to go upstairs, but at least this saves me money.
