After watching a beautiful sunset on Dartmoor, I headed for my first Plymouth Nando's experience at the easier-to-park-at Barbican. It turned out to be a great choice since the food was exceptional!

Only one downfall is in the single Wrap you get approx 2 small pieces of chicken in each half. I understand you can get a double wrap but there's no in-between its either not enough chicken or too much and in the single wrap its just overpowered by lettuce.

My wife and I travel down to Plymouth from Leicester around 6 to 8 times a year to visit my youngest son Joe (my little baby boy, but don't tell him I said that) who is at university there reading English. It is a long journey as you can imagine. On arriving on our first visit we asked the hotel receptionist about local eateries, she recommended the Nando's at the Barbican, so we decided to give it a try.

We bought the peri peri chicken thigh and drumstick combo meal and shared it between 3, had large chips, ratoutille and olives...we are new to nandos and always wondered what the fuss was about and now we know and now we can't wait to come back again.
Refillable cold drinks too, and table sauces you can take to your table, it was a pleasurable experience.

Staff were very welcoming, it made a lovely change from the other places we normally go to.

Plymouth Barbican Leisure

Another day in Plymouth means another Nando's! And after running the Half Marathon what better way to refuel? This time it was the Nando's in the Barbican Leisure Park - which meant free parking in the hundreds of spaces on the complex. In the complex you'll also find a Tenpin Bowling Alley, Vue Cinema, Oceana club, Nuffield Gym and other eateries.

Very welcoming staff, did have a long wait in the queue as the person in front was obviously a nandos virgin and spent about 10 minutes at till deciding. with 8 staff wandering around in background was getting annoyed by wait but eventually one of them came and opened up a second till. Beverages and sauces central location, toilets upstairs could do with better signage but were clean.

This Nando's is right next to a Vue cinema. Parking is free in the cinema car-park. The nearest train station is Plymouth station, and it is about 2 miles away. It is on a major road and is close to the City Centre.
