"...more for your money. Heron Frozen Foods helps me a little bit by being able to buy food at bargain prices. Heron Frozen Foods is a little known chain of freezer shops. Apparently it has 117 branches with it head office in Hull but I had never heard of it until I came across their branch in Stretford mall in Greater Manchester. They are a down market version of Iceland and Farmfoods (I bet you did not believe that was possible). They sell a range ..." Read review

N-Ice Bargain Hunters Hidey-hole!

AdvantagesMethodical, Cheap, Branded

DisadvantagesSmall, Cramped

"...needs them, everyone uses one. Heron Frozen Foods, as they were known until recently, are predominantly northern with their base in and around Hull. I am lucky in that I can find at least 5 within a 10 mile radius. For those who are lucky, other branches further afield from Hull, that I know of, include Bridlington, Scarborough, Mablethorpe, Skegness, Grimsby, Spalding, Lincoln and around Greater Manchester. I will not try to bore with all locations! ..." Read review

'Heron' Knows what I'd do without them!

AdvantagesBranded Goods at Low Prices

DisadvantagesSmall Stores, High Shelves

The decor isn't anything to write home about and it totally gives ..." Read review

Shopping on a budget and not missing out.

AdvantagesBrand and Heron products all at low prices

DisadvantagesThe store is small and not easy to get around

"...that I love and makes Heron stand out from the other stores is that they sell a lot of brand names sometimes at half price or lower. They sell a lot of the weight watchers meals at half price adn for the vegetarians their is a great range of their own and also a lot of Linda Mcartneys ready meals, sausages, burgers ect. This is great for me as my partner is a vegetarian and shopping here can sometimes cut my bill in half as anyone who purchases ..." Read review

Not as far as Iceland

AdvantagesVery cheap, if you are buying in bulk

DisadvantagesSome products don't have a long shelf life

"I wanted to write this op because I feel the shop deserves to be known about, the problem with that is I believe that the company is actually just a Hull based shop so unless you can get to Hull easily than you may not be interested. Here goes anyway… The front of the shop looks just like a typical freezer shop, a big window with this weeks special offers on large poster to entice you in. The shops, and there are about one on each main shopping ..." Read review
