There is an abundance of free parking right outside, on the retail park, for up to 3 hours.

This Nando's is on the Roaring Meg Retail Park and so is easily found just off junction 7 of the A1(M). It's less than a mile from the town centre and train station - and also from Stevenage Leisure park where things like a Hollywood Bowl and Cineworld are. There is an abundance of free parking right outside for up to 3 hours.

Arrived at this Nando's around 5:30pm and it was very quiet - only a couple of tables in use and at one point I was the only person in there.

What a brilliant meal! This new Nando’s is six weeks old and it’s a cracker! You can park right outside for free and you should find it easier to get a table here than at the first Stevenage Nando’s which is very nearby.

To echo Marc's comments, this Nando's is in a very easy location with free parking, and has stunning decoration - they really went all out on this one. The manager told us about some lightbulbs which are made individually by hand in South Africa and take about a month each to complete!

The food itself was absolutely delicious, and a rare 5/5, with the chips being perfectly covered in peri-spice, and my double pitta well made and suitably filling.

I often wonder how your staff have the patience to do their job with the amount of bad behaviour they have directed at them. I had a warm, friendly welcome, good food and great service. However while sitting enjoying my food I noticed not once but twice a young waitress (Rebecca) was subjected to quite rude behaviour from customers, totally unprovoked, yet she remained calm and helpful throughout both exchanges, she is a credit to you.
