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 Nando's is in the new BH2 development which also houses an Odeon and another (soon to be) 13 restaurants (only a few are open currently). 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. Bournemouth train station is 1 mile walk away.

Stopped in here around 1pm and it was pretty quiet, with the food coming in just over 10 minutes. I had a single chicken breat burger and chips and it was a standard portion. The chicken breast wasn't too thin nor thick and there was enough sauce on it. The chip portion was a standard side and all were generally cooked well enough.

This is a nice bright new Nando's, with full length windows running the whole length of the curved restaurant. The ceiling follows the curve and is wooden clad with yellow string running along the ceiling too. There are spinning sort of discs for some of the lighting in the windows and other lanterns for further lighting. There's some seating 'outside', but just a few small tables and then a good variety of seating inside including lots of square booths to cater for the cinema crowds. Toilets are at the back and are a series of unisex cubicle rooms tiled in a grey and lime.

Staff were pleasant and doing as expected.
