    I was recently at frankie & bennys for my daughters 6th birthday. We travelled by VIP minibus as a treat for her & her friends and got a ticket as the minibus took up nearly 2 spaces. My daughter has a disabled badge and as we couldn’t fit in the disabled bays the minibus dropped us off at the door and then went off to park. Seeing as though the car park is free and my daughter has a disabled badge, which was clearly displayed, we shall be disputing the ticket!

    I agree that people should be able to park within 2 lines, even us ladies! but they need to make the car park more accessible for other uses; bikers, minibus users or maybe even coaches! Bad press is never good but we certainly won’t be using the facilities is a rush again, especially if in anything bigger than a car!

  2. David says

    Regarding the earlier comment by Dave to fraudulently photocopy a disabled badge. What a disgusting person.

  3. Rebel says

    Tip: Don’t be bullied by the evil private car park companies. Ignore any ticket. Just do not respond to any of the bullying letters. They will drop it as they would not like to face a judge in the small claims court, they have a very weak legal case for charging you.

    Just got back from eating at frankie and bennies at Ashton moss. There wereno spaces and we have avert large car sparked behind the restaurant nextel the ins not obstructing anyone. When we’re turned parkinticketsaywewerenot parkedinabay.absolutely junta money spinning rip off. We did regularl butaftertonit won’t ever go back.

    I agree entirely with Carol Fotheringham. Not all of us want to park like packed sardines and gather car park battle scars from careless people who open their car doors into your nice car. I parked behind the Harvester on what looks like a cul-de-sac/service road. There were no markings, no signs and I was not impeding access to anything. It did not even look like part of the car park. Sure enough, I got a parking ticket for 40 pounds if I pay within 14 days! This seems very unjust to me, especially as there were no signs or markings where I parked. It seems to me the private parking company are onto a real money-spinner here. Anyone with any fairness or ethics would have simply left me a note saying that I shouldn’t park there and give the reasons. The simple reason given on the ticket was ‘not parked correctly within the markings of the bay or space.’ No wonder parking wardens get punched!! Top tip…appeal the ticket but send a photocopy of someone’s disabled badge and claim that you needed extra space to be able to maneouvre your aged relative and wheelchair!

    I have just taken my boys to the cinema at Ashton Moss, and got a parking ticket. We wont be going back. You would think somewhere that has places you take children bowling and to the cinema would have parking spaces wide enough to get the family out of the car?

  7. Joanne says

    We go to Cineworld at Ashton every Christmas Eve and then on to Eat Inn. We’ve never had a ticket or cold food and the food is lovely.

  8. Stephen Monstaa Blood says

    I go to Ashton Moss a lot! I’ve never been fined and I drive a Ford Escort (not smallest car in the world) and always have fun!

  9. sinead says

    Go to the cinemas or bowling and then go to either Frankie and Bennys or Nandos because they are the best. Eat Inn is not very nice unless you like cold food.
    Nandos is just pizza really. I don’t like it that much.
    The cinema is not cheap but neither is bowling any more.

    For anybody unsure about the parking at Ashton Moss follow the simple rules and you will be fine. Rule 1 don’t park in a disabled bay if you don’t have a permit (you will get a ticket no excuses). Rule 2 double yellows – you will be fine parking on them as long as you don’t leave your vehicle. If you leave your vehicle then again expect a ticket. Rule 3 cars/bike’s park in between the white lines and you will be ok. Vans have your front bumper either at the white line or the entrance line to the space. Rule 4 do not park at the back of the eateries in the staff car park area. If you are unsure where to go find a space where you have 3 while lines around you and park in the middle. My personal pet hate is in a disabled area without a permit. You deserve your ticket how ever long you parked there or what ever excuses you may come up with. The facilities are meant for everyone who comes on site. The ones who don’t adhere to the rules get fined. Bikes, cycles and motorbikes – there are parking areas either side of the cinema.

    Never had a parking fine on this site and do think people should think of others when parking. But this a leisure park and needs to attract people back. These fines seem high. Ashton Town Centre has some of the strictest parking and yet you could pay for two spots for much less. Maybe someone should rethink the level of punishment to the "crime" and some self-righteous people should be less bitter. Pride comes just before a fall.

  12. Chris says

    There are no bike parking spaces in the whole development. It is 2010, this kind of poor quality planning is unacceptable. I had to take my business elsewhere. There must (or at least should) be laws about proving adequate facilities for those of us choosing to get to these kind of places by ethical means.

  13. Phil says

    Parked my Saab 93 sports-wagon went to the cinema and a meal at Nando’s and got a 45 pound fine and 50 pound administration fee from my company. I did get a lovely photo of my rear tyre touching the white line as a memento. Not a little complex, though if the only press they get is due to harsh way the ex SS office parking attendants go about their job of work something is wrong.

  14. mel says

    I agree with both Dave and Chris. It’s not hard to park in between the lines, and boys I am a women. I have been Ashton Moss lots of times for food and pictures and think it’s a great day/night for fun with friends.

  15. em says

    You need to learn how to park, then you wouldn’t get the fines would you?

  16. chris says

    I totally agree with Dave. Use one car parking space and then no fine; easy! And yes ladies I do have kids and drive a 4×4 but I have no problems parking!!! Be more considerate to other users of the car park. There are enough spaces!!

  17. katie says

    I have been here loads of times, never been fined, but have never noticed any warning signs either – bet they are really tiny.

  18. Carol Fotheringham says

    I completely agree with Linda. I went to the cinema on a Sunday evening, then to the KFC after. We parked in the empty section of the car park to avoid others scratching my car – as often happens in places like this. My husband had also parked slightly over the line. This resulted in a parking ticket for 45 pounds, in an empty car park. this is ridiculous. If it were a busy Saturday and we were preventing others from parking fair enough, but in an empty car park, this was just a pathetic excuse for extorting money from patrons, which we will never be again. I will be disputing the ticket, based on the grounds that their rules and regulations for using the car park are not clearly displayed.

  19. liz says

    Dave, guess you’ve got no kids then so you’ve probably not struggled to get a child in or out of a car with very little to room to open the door!

  20. dave says

    Hey Linda – maybe you should learn to park properly then you wouldn’t be getting fined left right and centre would you? The lines are there for a reason.

  21. Linda says

    Car parking facilities are extensive but there are no mother and child parking bays. If you also manage to park over a line to try to give yourself more room to get your child out you will get a fine of 40 pounds from the parking Gestapo. Overall a place to avoid.
