The magic hasn’t gone, but it has changed. Moto now manage the site and they are doing a grand job (for the consumer anyway) with the arrival of Marks & Spencer, Greggs and Costa. WH Smith, Burger King and the slot machine areas are still there and the outside area has new facias and a huge screen outside the main entrance (Southbound).


With 2 hours free parking (don’t bother, they use ANPR cameras) and clean toilets make visiting a lot more pleasant than in the old days. Continue reading “When your takeaway flat white looks this good”
