    This is a massive Tescos, and the perfect shop to do your weekly/ monthly grocery shop.
    The carpark is huge and so you are almost guaranteed easy parking. The store itself offers really good value, with permanently low prices as well as special offers making your pennies stretch even further.
    They sell some beautiful bouquets flowers and plants, which are great quality and very good value. They also have a wide selectiono f magazines and newspapers.
    This branch has the added benefit of a Krispy Kreme doughnut stall, enabling you to treat yourself to a gorgeous doughnut while you're doing the weekly shop!
    The store is well stocked as huge huge departments of fruit, vegetable, diary products, meat counter, delli counter, fish counter, and a huge frozen section. There is also a massive section on beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and an instore bakery.
    This shop is great value- especially if you have a Tesco Clubcard- and definitely worth trying out for your weekly shop.

    This is known fairly widely as 'Big Tesco', to distinguish it from the Tesco on Cowley Road, and it certainly lives up to the name. It's got a huge range of items, although no adult clothing (other than underwear) or much in the way of electronics/media/toys, unlike even bigger stores. For groceries, though, it's got a lot to offer. Fruit and veg are of good quality and usually well-stocked. The deli and fresh fish counters offer a lot of choice, and they even have a large 'Polish food' section. They have two 'car trolleys' which amuse small (and big) kids greatly, and make the shopping trip easier with children who are too big for the trolley seats but too small to walk all the way around without whining.

    Staff are friendly and helpful, and offers on food are good value.

    ample parking, great selection and always plenty of bargains. coffee shop and petrol station also in situ. the staff are very friendy, and the store is open 24hrs a day so very convenient if you run out of nappies or baby milk in the middle of the night and can't wait til the morning.

    A huge store, though nearly all food and housewares, there's very little clothing apart from underwear and a little bit for kids. It's a typical Tesco, with a wide range and good prices, fresh fish, meat and cheese, a good range of fruit and veg. I tend to go early evenings, which has the advantage of a lot of reduced to clear items, and the disadvantage that some items I need have run out. There can be queues for petrol in the evenings, too, with only a few pumps in operation. But mainly, I walk there, and one of my main gripes with the store is that pedestrian access is very poor, specially if you're trying to negotiate traffic around the car park and lugging a shopping trolley. My other gripe is that the recycling centre at the entrance to the car parks is full of rubbish, not just plastics and bottles which don't fit into the bins, but sacks of refuse, old nappies, broken household stuff. Not Tesco's fault, but not nice to walk past on your way to the store.
