This is on Giltbrook Retail Park (otherwise known as Eastwood or the IKEA Retail Park) and is very well signposted by car. It's just off J26 of the M1, but is definitely one to get to by car.

Arriving at 11.30am on a weekday is a recipe for a quick Nando's, and this was no exception. I was seated and had my food in front of my within 5 minutes of parking my car. Since it was the hottest day of the year so far I sat outside on some intriguing chairs which looked like birds' nests.

A fabulous Nando's in Nottingham broke up the long drive from London to Newcastle and I was joined by 3 fellow gooners for what turned out to be an exceptional Nando's. We were the first people to enter the restaurant as the doors opened at 11.30 but by the time we left (12.45) the restaurant was almost full maybe because it was the sales or simply because it was a Saturday lunch time.

This Nando's is on the Giltbrook Retail Park (otherwise known as Eastwood or the IKEA Retail Park) and is very well signposted by car and has hundreds (if not thousands) of free parking spaces. The park started with just an IKEA, Decathlon and a Next and has now grown to include Pizza Express, Laura Ashley, BHS and a host of other shops. It's just off J26 of the M1, but is definitely one to get to by car.

After an arduous weekend on the peak district we decided to call into this Nandos due to its close proximity to the motorway on our way home. Based In a large industrial and shopping estate it is somewhat out in the sticks and not the pleasent view.

Parking was free and plentiful and we could stick our bus right outside the door.

Toilets were clean and the decor of the store was bright and cheerful.

staff were freindly enough and service was ok.

This store had not long opened so I was very keen to try, how disappointed I was and haven't returned since! Although staff were polite enough and the place was well decorated and clean, the service was the slowest I've ever received in a nando's and staff were ignorant when they wanted to be. When food and desserts had not arrived after a lengthy wait they were ignoring us so they didn't have to answer our questions on where I food was.

Parking is free which is always a plus and its in an area full of other shops and next to an ikea (for those that like a bite to eat after shopping for furniture ha)
Only issue i have was they got my order wrong meaning i had to send it back so time my food arrived my boyfriend had pretty much finished.
