Historical version 13 of Tesco (Cowley Road)
- 159-161 Cowley Road
- OX4 1UT
- 7am-12midnight (Mon to Fri), 7am-10pm Sat, 10am - 4pm, Sun
A small Tesco Metro store.
Unpleasently busy with long (> 20mins) queues a peak periods.
Check the date on supposedly fresh bread—I've known it to be 2 days past...
But while the above is, no doubt, true, I think it's also a little harsh. This Tesco is hardly the pinnacle of supermarket achievement, but, compared to the other options vaguely close to the centre of Oxford, it's great. Certainly miles better than either of Sainsbury's offerings.
A branch of the CO-op has opened nearby;
An impenetrable maze of illogical aisles and over-priced rubbish (one of the most expensive Tescos in the country, including London) but decent fruit and veg offerings.
Always long queues and never enough staff, it would never happen to the new outlets in California! This place has driven me to MarksExpensive. Come on Tesco have some respect for your staff and customers.
