This Nando's is about a 10 minute walk down the steep hills from the Castle and Cathedral. It's 100 yards or so from an Odeon. Lincoln Central Train Station is also in the city centre and half a mile walk from Nando's.
Parking: 
There seems to be a car park on just about every corner in Lincoln city centre - all of which accept cards and payment by phone. All vary in size, hourly/daily rate and some also have maximum stays. Generally speaking you'll pay about £1 an hour, up to £6 for all day, or £2.50 for evening only (6pm-8am). The Lucy Tower multi-storey is nearest to Nando's and just a hundred yards walk away.

I had a chicken breast pitta with peri salted fries and creamy mash. Food was very nice, slightly tight on portion of chips but still nice. Didn’t get a drink as only a flying visit and didn’t want to pay for bottomless to only have one drink.

I had a Veggie Burger with 2 sides and a coke! Awesome service from a lovely girl called Sophie Harrold, helped us out in every way she could, even reccommended good parking spots! Awesome food, on time even though the place was full, hot and tasty as usual! Thanks to Sophie Harrold for the awesome service, definitely come again!

This store is on the northern shore of Brayford Pool an inland harbour full of pleasure boats and surrounded by gentrification of the shoreline with a range of restaurants, hotels and a short walk from the Odeon cinema. I parked in the municipal multistory car park on Lucy Tower street which has narrow spaces and winds it's way up with tight corners but is only a short walk away.

The worker with the crazy ginger hair stood out to me. He was incredibly friendly and helpful, easily the best employee you have there. He easily made me want to return to your restaurant which I shall do in the future. Give him 10/10 glad he works there, an incredible employee.

After finding Rate Your Nandos on Instagram and signing up immediately, I rushed out that evening to review my local Nandos. I am a student and have visited this Nandos on many occasions so had high hopes. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed. I feel like I should point out that in the circa 20 times I have visited, this was the worst visit I've had- sod's law isn't it?

This nandos has a beautiful view of the brayford, I can't wait till it's sunny enough to use their outside seats and grab a big jug of sangria!
All staff were super friendly and even brought cutlery over to me as they had noticed I'd forgotten to grab any.
The food itself was as delicious as ever.

A great experience was had. The restaurant looked fantastic from the outside to the inside and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. The food was brilliant, chicken was juicy and chips crispy and hot. My favourite Nando's by far!

In Lincoln for the weekend and what better way to fuel up for a half marathon than some chicken and chips??

This Nando's is located in the Brayford Waterfront area, which is home to other eateries and bars and just a couple minutes walk from the main city centre shops. This is also only a 10 minute walk down the steep hills from the Castle and Cathedral.

The only thing i was disappointed about was the speed of service. This is my favourite Nando's and i never normally have any issues at all. However as a party of 4, 2 meals arrived fairly quickly and the 2nd two meals took a further 10 minutes to arrive which was not ideal as the first two has pratically finished by this point.
This Nando's is usually amazing though!

Very nice restaurant overall, although out table was very sticky; the sleeves of my top kept attaching themselves to the surface!

Odeon Cinema is a short walk away, as well as a variety of pubs and bars.

Parking is ample, although incurs a charge which can be a lot of you park at an NCP car park.

Had to find my own table as no-one was available to greet me! Food was in good time and staff seemed keen to help...just needed more of them...was busy for a mid pm time. Has a good view across the lake outside and you are able to watch the trains pass in/ot of Lincoln just behind. City-centre parking is the only downside. Next door to a Wetherspoons and other pubs.
