“Fruit and vegetables well past their best.”

Written on: 22/11/2016

Visited Lidl store Woodlesfod, Leeds 20th November 2016. Whilst being happy in my purchase of bread, meat and dairy produce, I was appalled by the quality of Oakland's fruit and vegetables. Oranges were green mouldy and rotting in the pre packed boxes and bags on display, the celery was dark green and obviously picked too early for consumption. If I had bought some, it would have gone off before it was easy to eat. I purchased some carrots, which were just ok along with a bag of baby… Read Full Review

“Lidl the best supermarket EVER”

Written on: 19/11/2016 by StockwellTiger (1 review written)

I used to be a supermarket snob until I went home to visit my family in Ireland and my mum was always raving about Lidl and telling me how great their laundry liquid and cat and dog food is so I decided to go with her when she went shopping and was surprised at the amount of fresh produce, cheeses, cold meats and especially wine they stocked. I live in London so when I returned from Ireland I went for a shop in Lidl Streatham and have been doing my shopping in Lidl since then 2012. I always… Read Full Review

“Quite cheap, very nasty.”

Written on: 14/11/2016 by Lordsnotty (1 review written)

Not a pleasant experience. The store looks dirty and is very cluttered.They are understaffed to the point of being chaotic. Always long queues, no express tills if you are trying to buy a few items. The car park is a death trap. Trolleys dumped everywhere… Read Full Review

“Could be better”

Written on: 28/10/2016 by HaidenMcGuire (1 review written)

They distribute unwanted junkmail flyers through the doors in the surrounding area. I had another one today. They spray the fruit with shellac from beetles and don't advertise this. Three independent local shops have closed since they came here. There are always their shopping trolleys dumped in the river, and they did nothign about it when I reported it. They encourage unnecessary car use - there's not even a safe pedestrian route to the local store. Lots of litter on the paths around the… Read Full Review

“do not go with a car”

Written on: 15/09/2016 by ballanja (1 review written)

I totally agree with this comment. Shopped at Lidl Chapel Allerton Leeds for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Went with my husband who is 70 and who is awaiting a new hip. We also have a medical condition which we need to be mindful of and we check ingredients of products which are new to us. As this was the first visit there it took some time but we left happy with a purchases totalling just over £100. I was delighted with the variety and quality of the fresh products and fresh bakery… Read Full Review

“Parking at Lidl .. beware”

Written on: 15/01/2016 by itsjustajoke (2 reviews written)

Lidl is not the cheapest if you end up with a £90 parking ticket for simply shopping with them. Long wait at check out due to lack of staff. The Parking Prankster web site SAYS "At one time Lidl contracted one of the larger parking companies to manage their car parks. However, once they learned how much money was being made by the company for overstays, they sacked the company and brought the operation in-house" In other words, Lidl pocket the parking fine to boost their profits. Be… Read Full Review

I totally agree with this comment. Shopped at Lidl Chapel Allerton Leeds for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Went with my husband who is 70 and who is awaiting a new hip. We also have a medical condition which we need to be mindful of and we check ingredients of products which are new to us. As this was the first visit there it took some time but we left happy with a purchases totalling just over £100. I was delighted with the variety and quality of the fresh products and fresh bakery items and fresh meat . I started to tell friends....... but to my horror we have received a £90 parking fine reduced to £45 if paid in 14 days. This has cancelled out the savings and made it more expensive than Sainsbury's.. who encourage you to take your time as they provide a coffee and food outlet in Moortown. So Lidl I understand that if your site is on a bus route just on the outskirts of a major town that you may feel that someone would park their car in your car park, but If you can see me come and go in my car, you can also see me come and go through the main doors to the store and pay for a large trolley of shopping as I will have been waiting in line for a good 5-10 minutes before I can leave. Therefore you do not get my thumbs up, you do not encourage a family shopper and you are not all you make out to be.

“The cashier was soooo rude”

Written on: 23/12/2015 by Cruzgj271 (1 review written)

I have always used lidl and when I went to its branch in Chelmsford few weeks ago. As I was packing she said ' hurry up ' I was astonished and shocked at her attitude. I apologised and said I m trying my best. After that day I have never gone back. The lady with short hair made us feel like a piece of string… Read Full Review

“Never managed to buy ANYTHING in Lidl”

Written on: 22/12/2015 by chrisstressedout (1 review written)

For 3 years, Lidl has advertised Hungarian Tokay 5 Puttonyas wine. which I am very fond of. After visiting stores in Eastboiurne (twice), Exeter (twice) and Reading, I have never been able to purchase any Tokay. In two cases staff had heard of it - in one case they thought it might be in a reserved place 'as we don't have much of it' - and in 3 cases including today, staff knew nothing of the product and would not find out for me if or when it would be in stock. When I said they never seemed… Read Full Review

“Lidl is changing?”

Written on: 16/12/2015 by HillaryZ (3 reviews written)

Lidl was a great choice for me to buy cheap products. Most products here were of good value, their own brand products were tasty, so I liked some of them even more than similar products from more expensive brands. My favorite bread for breakfast came also from Lidl. But in the last months something is happening here… The taste is not always the same, I can´t find good fruit anymore, and the price has increased. I used to find here good quality for reasonable prices. I probably still would… Read Full Review

“Customer service?. LIDl makes a mistake & it costs me...”

Written on: 05/12/2015 by karajaal (1 review written)

Step right up LIDL suckers I've done all my grocery shopping at LIDL for the last 16 years. Now I've switched from Lewisham LIDL to ALDI and if you have any sense you'll think about it too. Recently my car was damaged in an accident and I was using a hire car. After shopping at LIDL as usual I was asked for my cars numberplate. I said it was a hire car and didn't know it but the guy on the checkout said it would be on the keys - which it was. About 2 weeks later the car hire company get a… Read Full Review

“Our shop of choice”

Written on: 27/11/2015 by jeeping (9 reviews written)

We started shopping at Lidl about 3 or 4 years ago, and it has saved us a small fortune. We regularly go to the Driffield, Pickering and Malton stores. But also the Thirsk, Whitby, Harrogate & Willerby stores. Without exception they are clean, generally well-stocked, easy to navigate, easy to park (we have a large van), the staff are friendly, efficient and very quick at the checkout. Sometimes we have to wait a little while, but it's a supermarket, other people go there as well (amazingly… Read Full Review
