  • One of the shops that I always love to visit on a shopping spree. It is not as crazy 😜 busy as the other more well known shops and there is a lovely ratio between staff and consumers. It offer a good variety of everything in a clean and pleasant environment. There are also cafes where you can catch a lovely coffee.
  • I love all the high street shops. Debenhams offers a very good shopping experience and is clean and well presented, while not being too large, some bigger shops can be overwhelming, though this may mean less selection than John Lewis or Selfridges.
  • So much sections why different products. There were areas not staff so had no one to ask a question. I believe with do much departments enough persons for good customer service
  • Very nice relaxing atmosphere... Can get your occasion outfit under one roof and drinks in the restaurants and cafe are value for this store!!!
  • I had breakfast there today and ordered a great British breakfast and French toast. The woman on the till only brought me the French toast with fresh fruit. And forgot about the breakfast. When I asked about it she told be I only ordered French toast! I think I know what I ordered. Aside from that the food was terrible the French toast came with two halves of a strawberry and 3 blueberries in a separate dish. The breakfast was dry and poor quality.not worth the money or the prolonged wait ! Avoid !
