Last time I went to ASDA there was, er, no need to ask where the fish counter was. By the time I emerged blinking into the sunlight I felt like I'd been slapped around the face a few times with a ripe haddock.
If change has occured I may feel rather more motivated to go back, particularly since ISTR they did organic hand-knitted soup much more cheaply than in Sainsbury's. If I actually knew where any ASDAs were around here, that is. :/

I've not noticed the fish counter at Asda in Cambridge smelling.

It's up Coldhams Lane, at the Beehive Centre. Coldham's Lane is the one with Sainsburys at one end and Newmarket road at the other.

That was the one; I used to pass it every day on my way to work. Unfortunately I live in Bedford now. :(

To be fair, ISTR it was an unexpectedly hot day early on in the year, so they'd probably been caught unawares and sorted it out later on.

asda.co.uk reckons that the nearest ones are Dunstable and Luton - so not that close, then.

Similarly, if you type in `Oxford' then you get Wheatley (which is a tiny store by comparison) followed by High Wycombe, which is 22 miles away.
