11 of us dined at Bicester Nandos last night. We were given the upstairs room beacuse we had rung earlier and told them that we were holding a meeting. They were happy to oblige and we had the room to ourselves. We did say if required we didnt mid other diners. We were asked what time we would like to eat and and the food arrived exactly when we wanted it , piping hot, plenty of it and served by very polite andf capable staff.

A Sunday drive down the M40 from Walton to Bicester was easy enough until we exited at junction 9 and encountered traffic caused by the thousands of Bicester Village visitors. Luckily this Nando's is in the town centre away from the hardcore shoppers and even luckier in this case was the fact that a Sainsbury's was located just opposite the restaurant meaning many birds could be killed with the proverbial stone.

This was my first visit to Nandos which my daughter had booked for her birthday. There were 12 of us.
I had 1/2 chicken with Creamy Mash and Macho Peas.
My meal was perfect and probably the best chicken I have had.
The whole evening was excellent, with friendly helpful staff, and great food.
I will certainly go again and can only recommend Nandos Bicester for a great meal.

This store is part of a new development on the edge of the centre of the small town of Bicester, it has a host of parking in the multi-storey car park which is above the large Sainsburys which is the anchor store of the development.

Will was a very attentive host greeting us at the door. We turned up with a large party an only had to wait about 25 minutes for a large table to be organised. It was quite busy, but being a Friday night that's entirely expected and we didn't have to wait too long for food. My only tiny little negative is that I only had a 1/4 chicken which was delicious however it was made up of more bone than meat and I had a huge piece of chicken spine.

Well, after having been on the road for nearly 3 hours, Bicester fell nicely as a stopping off point on my way home... and the perfect excuse to check out this new Nando's!
