This store on the corner of Denmark Hill and Coldharbour lane isn't in the most affluent of areas, should you be wishing to call into a pawn shop on the way into there are about 5 in the vicinity and also a fair few betting shops. There is also a large Jobcentre next door.
This store did take part in the 10 mile walk for London children a few years back and it's where I decided to change my socks on the walk.

I wasn't expecting much from one of the lowest rated Nando's in the country, and I therefore wasn't disappointed, by a spectacularly average dining experience.

Luckily the staff weren't as bad as some of the review suggest, though I certainly didn't pick up any particular warmth or enthusiasm from those I came into contact with. Everything arrived in a decent time though, and the decoration was as expected for a Nando's in the suburbs.

So i walked in, no one to greet me i went to the loo. Came back, still no one to seat me so i found my own table. About five members of staff walked past me and went outside, some sort of drill? Five people queuing to order and only one til? Staff walk past until someone finally opens an extra til.

So here it goes... my 250th different UK branch... and onto the second Nando's of the evening and I realised that it'd actually take longer to get the tube/train from Brixton to Camberwell, so I decided to have a leisurely 20 minute walk up Coldharbour Lane.

Camberwell Nando's had only ever received one review in the first 3 years of RYN so I took advantage of a free Saturday afternoon to see if the service was as bad as when Damien went. Luckily it wasn't, more to follow.

Camberwell was the 8th UK location to be graced with a Nando's restaurant.
Our Saturday afternoon trip here started out fine, and we were seated outside on a lovely sunny day.
We ordered, and all was fine until a bumbling waiter or waitress gave most of our food to another table (who cunningly ate most of it before complaining it was the wrong food - tip there!)
