Reliable tasty food..

Visited this restaurant after a trip to cineworld. Fast service, tasty food and friendly service. It is what you come to expect from Nandos. NHS staff get a 25% discount off one meal - nice touch - makes up for the rubbish salaries and pension!!

Love Nandos- always tops other restaurants in the area simply just because of how good the food is. Delicious!! Always cooked to perfection and always correct. Staff are polite and friendly. Reasonably priced and always get quick service!

Who doesn't love chicken? My most recent visit was with my boyfriend, around 9 o'clock at night after a movie. The staff where cleaning and shutting up for the evening, we decided what we wanted and went to the till, as you do, to order our food. We both wanted butterfly burgers and the lady on the till told us... More

I was expecting Nandos to be cheap and cheerful............ It's neither, the foods expensive with minuscule portions, over £30 for essentially 2 plates of chicken and chips, a bottle of beer and a bottle of water, eaten from a strangely sticky table, save your money and head over to Fowlers farm, you'll have a fuller tummy and more money left...

We came here on a rainy sunday afternoon with my niece as a treat. The service was friendly and helpful and the food was really nice, but I would say it is expensive for what it is. for the 3 of us for 3 dinners, drinks and a Nata each came to £45.00. Saying that, I was impressed with that... More

We had time to kill before a film and were a little peckish . So we thought we would try Nandos , we have not been in Nandos for a quite a few months. Was not over busy plenty of tables as the weather was great and there was plenty of tables outside. Although we didn't sit outside as I... More

In fact this is the worst nandos I've been to. The service was extremely slow here, which is unlike what I have come to expect from other nandos restaurants. It took around half an hour to have our food brought to the table, which was fine, but after we had finished we were left staring at our plates for longer... More

I ordered the mushroom wrap and within about half an hour I was shaky, feeling faint and very sick to the point I couldn't drive home for a while. I hadn't even eaten any meat so this was very strange! I don't know what they did to the mushrooms but I have never eaten there since!! Chips were good though
