The signs are useless and the maps are few and far between. The staff don't seem to know when certain restaurants are closed for refurbishment and the whole place felt less welcoming than France.
Expected it to be much bigger. Not a great selection of shops but you'll find all the basics plus some. Restaurants by the lake are nice. Food court small but pleasant if you get there early.
Loads of places to sit down while the women shop!
Free wi-fi, lots of good shops, easy access by car or bus
Free WiFi at the mall, also be sure to take a stroll around the lake to escape the chaos (weather depending).
Nicely revamped top floor food court now called Eatery
Here with marc and legend
Mad busy as always but still enjoyable ... leave an hour to get back onto the M25
Free parking. Free WiFi, lots of stores with plenty more on nearby retail parks.
Shopping all the way! :)
One word, massive. Ohh & free wifi :)
Great place to shop. Has everything you need.
For the love of everything good and right in the world, avoid this hellish place on a Saturday.
Pizza hut on the ground floor is quicker with better service
Avoid Cafe Giardino. Rude staff, didn't want to sell me food 45 minutes before closing, so I left without buying anything.
Not that great for shopping
The best time to shop at intu Lakeside is Friday afternoon because you will not encounter traffic jams.
There are shops and more shops
Much shops. So food. Many Essex.
Check out the sales at House of Fraser very tempting.
Free parking great places to eat
Great Brands on Menswear
That have free WiFi here.
Sport World tanioszka :)
Great place to shop
☔☔👍👍always something going on
Everything you need under one roof.
Taco Bell in food court cheap tasty eats better than most fast food chains
Bring a jacket it's freezing in here.
Definitely go to Cinnabon. Bring me one too.
Nice shopping but way too hot in summer :-((((
Avoid at the weekend... Always mental
Open till 10 pm free parking whoop whoop
Surprisingly small. Anyone who's been to other malls round the country might be a bit surprised at how undersized Lakeside is.
Free WIFI throughout the mall. Select "intu Lakeside"
Great place to spend the day free parking cool
Horwl chocolate easter eggs fab
Don't go on a weekend unless you like playing bumper cars with people ;-)
Don't drive here on a Saturday, unless you thrive in traffic of inconsiderate nutjobs.
Late night shopping until 10pm Monday-Friday and 9pm on Saturday
Feels very dated.
Prefer this place to Bluewater ... go about 8pm ... an absolute pleasure to walk around
Want a contract for the latest smartphone or just a cheap pay as you go deal? Whatever you're after, come and see us at our store on Level 2 to find out what we can do 4u!
Try not to get bored while your other half shops for clothes!
Despite sales, the shopping centre is empty!
Best shopping centre
AVOID like the plague during the xmas season!
This place is huge. Be prepared to walk a lot
Loads of shops and beautiful women. Nice.
