I would definitely go back to this branch just to see Wolverine again. He didn't come back to get Barcelos from us because he changed shift but he is probably pulling all the ladies here.

Last Nando's for Leeds so we headed to the Light. It was to be the first on the Friday but as I wanted to go to Primark, it was changed to the Trinity, which set the bar for the rest of the weekend. Situated inside the Light Shopping Centre, its found on the ground floor as soon as you enter which is good you don't have to walk around looking for it. Only one level inside, the extra seating places outside the branch increases table numbers. Also good for rainy weather as it is inside the Mall.

I think it may have been about a 15 minute wait for the food, there were plenty of tables to choose from here but it was very dark, not much lighting going on at all. The sauce/ drinks station is smack bang in the middle of the restaurant which is great for everyone inside, at the front, few tables of four, along the back in the booths and down the far side. For this it's probably not good sitting outside in the foyer.

Quarter chicken m &l, peri chips and garlic bread again. Breast piece was kind of flat, a little dry but the skin was so nice, saucy and a little crispy. Plenty of chips on the plate with the salt, but the garlic bread had seen better days. There were chunks missing out of it, and it was a little burnt, still ate it, just soaked it in lemon and herb sauce. Otherwise the meal was good.

As I mentioned before, the branch had little lighting so it was very gloomy. Nothing really stood out by way of decorations or paintings or artwork that I could see. I would definitely go again as it was really easy to find walking from the train station via the Wetherspoons. We also popped into the Art Gallery which was open where we surely saw some interesting artwork. Not the worst of the weekend (Harrogate) but not the best, which was Wakefield. But i'll be visiting Leeds again for the remaining branches we missed off this time so will do another review.
