anyone here from coventry ?

If so i apologise before i start.

My daughter ( eldest ) told me that its 100 times better than Brum shops ... cleaner ... more choice ... nicer people ... etc-etc.

Oh and right next to the train station.

OK ...SO i took my other daughter ( to look for a prom dress ) and bits n peices and my son.

WHAT A PERFORMANCE! For starters its not right by the train station AT ALL... Had to get a bus from the wood to marston green a train from there to coventry, walk from there to the shops and then the same back except i got a taxi from coventry to train station cus i couldnt recall the way we had gone.

Shops ... yeah ok ... HUMONGOUS PRIMARK, WILKOS, Pound shops ... they did have all the other ones ( further along ) but those 3 Shops dominate the center.

CLEANER ? Who you kiddin ? compared to the BULLRING / BRUM --- TOUCHWOOD / SOLIHULL Not a chance mate!

SPENT A FORTUNE IN THE END CUS I DIDNT WANT IT TO BE A WASTED JOURNEY.

Then on the way home in coventry train station , missed the train so i said they could have a sandwhich n drink in the waiting room cafe thing on the platform.



WAIT FOR IT :


CHEESE SALAD ON WHOLEMEAL SANDWHICH
2 TUNA BAGUETTES
3 PKS CRISPS AND 3 BOTTLES SPRING WATER ( as it was 99p for drink and crisps if you bought a sandwhich ).

TOTAL = 12.08


F*** O**!!!!

NEVER EVER EVER IF I LIVE TO BE 100 WILL I BE GOING THERE AGAIN.

Just wait till natalie comes in from work :shock: :roll:

LOL - I agree about the Cov, Solihull is my fave, not so big like the Bull Ring. I get lost wandering around trying to find what I want :)

And Cov, yes .... Pool Meadow Bus Station is also not the cleanest going, and could do with the bulldozers coming in !

and that was one expensive baguette Elaine - yikes ! did they bake the bread for you on site for that price ?

next time, stick to what you know, and the shops on the Town Centre are OK anyway. New Look, Peacocks etc. I think its a shame that Food Giant went years ago :(.

Oooops! well parts of brum are indeed SHI*HOLES lol - as with any place i suppose and technically i dont even live in brum myself now. Though thats mere formality re the council. But sit on the bus for 5 mins in most directions and im back in brum.
