This branch is located in the town centre, right by the War Memorial and just round the corner from the Museum and Church. Sixfield Leisure Park is a couple of miles away which is where the nearest cinema and bowling alley are. Northampton train station is also only half a mile walk away from the town centre and Nando's too.
Parking: 
As for parking, St Johns Street multi-storey (24hrs) is only a 5 minute walk away. It's cheap during the day/week giving the first 2 hours are free and then £1.20 for the 3rd hour and all day parking at only £7. An evening rate from 5pm-11:59pm is only £1 - and there is free parking all day on Sunday/Bank Holidays! This car park is also right by a large Morrisons/Dunnes car park so you could probably sneak a couple hours free if need be. There is also parking right outside but a maximum of one hour stay.

A fourth Nando's in what was a Nandventure-filled week was the perfect way to end a lovely holiday in the Peak District.

There is 2-hours free parking in St Johns Street multi-storey car park which was very convenient and just over a five-minute walk from Nando's.

We had a short wait as it was a busy Friday lunchtime but were seated in under 10 minutes. This is quite a nice Nando's with an interesting wooden effect on the ceiling and some cool lighting near the front.

I visited Nandos around 5pm and a lovely litte staff member Rochelle served me, although she told me she was just finishing her shift she still served me with exceptional friendlyness and a smile on her face. I ate half a chicken that was presented great and tasted just as good, the only down side to this restaurant is the parking!

Surprisingly this is the only Nandos location in Northampton, I say surprisingly because in a town of this size you might expect more than one (perhaps Nandos might consider a new store at Sixfield leisure park? - just my suggestion). This would be my first visit to Northampton Nandos which is located in the heart of the town, just next to the main market square and a couple of minutes walk from the Grosvenor shopping centre.

Often visit Northampton Nandos. The meeter and greeter is one of the friendliest people we have come across in a restaurant. We think that his name is Manny, he is lovely and makes everyone feel special and welcome. We have seen him on a number of occasions and he is always the same.

After a long day of work, my friends and I decided to go to Nandos we are originally from London so this was our first time in Northampton and I must say this was one the best visits to Nandos I've ever experienced. The customer service was amazing, the cashiers were incredible, very friendly and engaged

Went as a group of us, to lose some of my friends nandos virginity. As I'm a frequent visitor at northampton we didn't have to wait long, but if you have a big group like mine don't expect to be taken straight to your table. As soon a we were to our table we got our food with in 5-10mins of ordering and a few of us had discount cards i.e. Cineworld Unlimited Card 20% off.

I originally thought this was just another "chicken and chips" place so always walked past it. I work as a carer and took a client in there for lunch. The chap on the door was very nice and polite and explained the menu to us. The lady I was with has learning difficulties and he was very patient and understanding with his explanation of it to her. The décor of the place is very unusual and the music blended in well.

Well after a half marathon what better way to refuel than another Nando's?? Seeing as though I was in the area (running in the Delapre Abbey estate), it would have been rude not to go to Northampton Nando's!

Just off from pedestrianised area and view of church and war memorial imediate outside door of store along with small seating area. Disabled parking imediately outside and cheap short term on road parking close by. Very well decorated with plenty of art and nice environs. Liked red heart lighting in windows and loved copper till area. Dislike no booths in this store.

Nando's Northampton is the bee's knees! I've been to a few Nando's in London, Milton Keynes and Birmingham and Northampton is the nicest by far. The staff are all really friendly and the restaurant is in excellent condition/always clean. I've also never been disappointed with a meal from this branch and I've had lots!

We visited at 5.40pm on 23/01/2010 - the "greeter" and assistant on checkout were very friendly and helpful. There was a long wait for our apppetiser - (Hummus and Pita) - when it arrived it looked congealed and not fresh at all.
