We had just walked in and me and my mate where sat quickly to a nice small table just perfect for us. The member of staff as tall, skinny and had brown curly hair. He was very chatty and welcoming which made us feel really comfortable. Cracking jokes and making us feel like valued customers. Great service defiantly be back again

A very interesting visit for all the wrong reasons.

Went to this branch with DJ Damien and the gang as this was the 92nd restaurant opened in the UK. I've never been to Bedford before but I'm glad there's no other Nando's so I never have to go again. It's about a 15 minute walk from the train station on the other side of the main high street just next to the Bedford Bridge.

Nando’s 92 was in Bedford, a place that I knew little about, except for that I see the name up as the final destination of several trains that run through my area. The train service seemed to be running a slightly shoddy weekend service, but with a couple of changes, we made it to Bedford for a late lunch.

I visited on Easter Monday mainly to have the sweet potato wedges I had loved few days earlier in the Milton Keynes - Centre location (see separate review) again.

I order the Churrasco Thigh Burger (medium) with sweet potato wedges, macho peas and a soft drink. I also separately ordered the white chocolate raspberry swirl cheesecake.

Visited Bedford Nandos with my girlfriend for a quick meal before the cinema. We arrived at the Bedford branch and were greeted politely by a member of staff who showed us to a table. The décor was good but not great, although I hadn't come for the view! I had a butterfly chicken breast with sweet potato and my girlfriend had a chicken pita with chips. We were served quickly and they remembered the extra mayonnaise that I had asked for when ordering.

This store is on the edge of the river front close to the town centre just over from the church and by the bridge and with the Swan hotel and Boer war memorial on the other side. The interior of the store wasn't that great and looked tired. The store didn't feel that full but the queue to get served was gigantic. The staff were so and so and didn't really have the gleam.

Very diss appointing! Girl who took my order constantly yawning. Not friendly in the least. Forgot to give me my change.
Had to be reminded and even with that was not apologetic in the least. Ordered chicken that was over done. Overall a very unpleasant experience.

Well let just say this wasn't a great nandos experience going here. not many places to park nearby as the place is near a busy part of bedford. Not well like outside and when you walk past it make you not want to go in.

This Nando's is right at the end of the High Street - and fortunately for me, it was a short walk from where I was working. Otherwise, unless you can park at a car park (I'm not sure if any are nearby), I would say that parking is scarce.

On this occasion it was just a lunch for me - work shirt and all, so I stuck to chicken breast burger and dabbed over with some Extra Hot sauce. It was as you expect and not too dry!
