The BH2 development also houses an Odeon and another (soon to be) 13 restaurants (only a few are open currently). Bournemouth train station is 1 mile walk away.
Parking: 
There's an NCP underneath which is a bit pricey at 1hr/£3, 2hrs/£4, 3hrs/£5, 4hrs/£6, 5hrs/£7 and up from there. There's a much smaller pay and display car park opposite the entrance to the NCP priced at £1/1hr, £2/2hrs, £3/3hrs, £5/4hrs for a maximum 4hr stay.

The one and only thing that I and all my friends/clients agree with, is that the portion of rice is too small for the price.

this Nando's in brand new Retail Park unit 1st floor, in the centre of Bournemouth,
really colourful and great decor, and good position, overlooking the Winter Gardens. (Cinema complex in the same Retail Park.)
The great thing was the food was tasty and quickly served,
(postcode BH2 5AU)

Stopped into this Nando's to catch up with all the recent openings and have now been to all of the UK Nando's, again, or at least until Hammersmith opens next month!

This store on Exeter road in the town centre is a Crescent shape around its neighbouring Odeon cinema with a outside balcony over looking the lower gardens and has under ground parking for those that need it. The toilet was unisex cubicle style which were a little tight and cramped.

When Jackie messaged me to ask if I wanted a one way road trip to Bournemouth I didn't hesitate to say yes. Checked the RYN website and saw there were two branches so I could get two killed birds and eat them. It was great.

Less than a two hour drive and we were in Bournemouth by the beach. The weather isn't the best but I'm not there to sight see. The Nando's is in town by the shopping parade, above TGI Fridays and next to La Tadcaster. They don't have a Five Guys yet.
