Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

Came to this Nando's on a Sunday afternoon at about 1pm. I was in London for the weekend so was on the tube, but would say the parking is N/A.

First impressions was that this is a very small branch, with tables cramped in where possible. There's not a great deal of room between tables, so I imagine when it's busy it's pretty hectic. There's maybe only 25 tables at most, which shows how small this branch is. There's one larger circular table in the front window but the rest are just tables/chairs in this small and narrow restaurant.

Front section (before the staircase to the toilets) has a decorated wall with 10 differently sized canvas paintings. Towards the back, there is another large canvas painting together with the end wall being completely wood panelled.

There were a couple of interesting lampshades for the lighting, but mostly it was just small spot lights embedded ina white painted ceiling. It was all clean, but average inside.

Luckily, the restaurant only had one other table in use when I arrived, so it was more comfortable - which also meant no queue to order and the food came in 7 minutes.

Being a lunchtime I opted for a chicken breast burger with chips and it was nice. The breast was very well marinated, but unfortunately it barely covered the cibatta it was on. The chips were scorching hot and crispy. It was tasty, but I think the tiny piece of chicken can only give this a 3.

Staff did the minimum too.
