This Nando's is in the heart of Peterbrough in Cathedral square the historic centre of the town with views of the old Guildhall outside and a short walk to the town hall, the cathedral and Queensgate shopping centre. In Queensgate shopping centre is the local bus station and also parking which is charged at £2 for 2 hours increasing by a £1 each hour. They have special prices with free parking after 5:30pm on Thursdays and just £2 all day on Sunday.

The store is very tall from the outside with a large glass front and outside seating on the square itself. Inside the serving counter, kitchen and clean up area go down the left of the store and there is vaulted wood ceilings with parquet flooring. Narrow steps lead up to the first floor where there is a very small amount of additional seating and the toilets which seemed to be busy with half of Peterbrough coming in to use them which is strange as they weren't that special. Staff are also kept fit running up the narrow stairs with plates. The sauce area was smart and had everything laid out well including a whole stand of sugar.

I had about a 10 minute wait to get a table and again a queue to get served and another 15 minute wait for the food to come out. When it did come out the chicken was very tasty and well cooked. The Halloumi was very tasty but was a small scrawny portion. The chips whilst a fair portion didn't seem to be the normal Nandos chips and were thinner and more bendy. The Bread roll was spot on.
