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.

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

While I was attending a first aid course in the area, i decided to grab something out for lunch. A friend told me Nando's did a take out option so I went here.

Great food. A table was found for 4 immediately and we were made comfortable. Food was the best we've had in a Nandos yet beating Ipswich and Birmingham.
