A lovely drive down to the New Forest was split up perfectly by this fantastic lunch at Basingstoke's second Nando's which is in a retail park with ample parking right outside. The weather was on our side and we were able to sit outside for a scorcher of a meal.

My chicken pitta was very enjoyable, and had the perfect level of spice. I followed this with some bottomless chocolate frozen yoghurt, which was delicious!

Peri Peri chicken livers dry due to the kitchen not adding sauce sauce. No butter for the rolls. Butterfly chicken burger very dry. Chicken texture like leather. Prepared food mounting up under heater and staff standing in groups chatting. This is my second visit to this branch and will not be visiting this branch again ! For the price you pay you would expect a good quality meal. Shame on you Nandos !

Seems odd that this extension to Brighton Hill has been done, especially when there is a huge Toys R Us empty... but hey ho.
