There appeared to be only three member of staff - a chef, someone on the till and one person servicing and tidying up - it was extremely busy but the waiter, I believe it his name was Jon, was extremely attentive and apologetic. I wanted to wait the time to be seated because I have a wheat and dairy allergy which makes eating out a pain but at nandos I can still have the dish I would order regardless!

This Nandos does good food however the staff seem very disorgabised and slow. The female manager with tattoo on her arm was the most inaficiant from a customers point of view. The food coordinator was shouting "runner please". The running was busy dealing with other customers. The manger walked casually past the food 6 times.

The third and last Nando's of my weekend tour of the South coast (Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester), and arguably the best. Parking was nice and easy in the bay's opposite, for the ludicrously cheap price of 20p for 2 hours (50p for the whole day if you are interested).

This Nando's is located on the newly developed Brewery Square, which is host to an Odeon Cinema (and a big Screen On The Square!) and other eateries. The nearest bowling alley is in Weymouth.

This is a new store as part of a leisure complex development in the south of Dorchester. Literally around the corner from Dorchester south train station. Its opposite the Wednesday market and close to a new Carrlucios and underneath/beside a New Odeon cinema still featuring scaffolding and hoarding.
