Yes
Nearby: 
Half a mile walk from Preston Railway Station. The nearest cinema is the Odeon, which is located about 1.5 miles away, down by the Ribble on Riversway Industrial Estate. There's a Lakeside bowling alley just north-west out of the city centre - about 2.5 miles away from this Nando's.
Parking: 
There are many well sign-posted car parks, such as the Central Bus Station which is 5 minutes walk away and is priced at £1.20 for the first hour, £2 for two hours, £2.70 for 3 hours etc (Mon-Sun). Market Hall parking is the same price except from 9pm-8am it's free (and is also 5 minutes walk away).

I was greeted to a very friendly & genuine welcome from Kate & shown to my table. Andy brought me a superb coffee very speedily whilst I perused the menu. The spicy chicken wrap with pineapple was succulent, spicy & hot - I think it was Fran who cooked this & she brought it quickly as I needed a speedy exit. I shall be returning as soon as I can with my family to enjoy another tasty meal!

Disappointed. Mash was supposed to be CREAMY it was in fact lumpy. Chicken was burnt on the top, hard and chewy. Most of the sauces didn't even pour. Ordered something to takeaway and ended up waiting another 15minutes because receipt got thrown away and was then repeatedly asked if we paid for the takeaway. I think I'll stick to the deep dale nandos.

A near perfect Nando's would say... if it wasn't for the fact I rocked up at noon, the advertised opening time and the doors weren't open.. I waited a few minutes a the staff opened the doors and told me there'd be a 20 minute delay. After a wander, returning after 25 it wasn't open, but it opened at 12:30..

Not entirely sure of the date, but possibly the worst experience at nandos. After always having rather high standards of other nandos restaurants I can honestly say I was horrified at this trip. I asked to change my order after paying and one of the employees came up, Sarah, and spoke to me in such an arrogant and condescending tone about it and then continued to speak very unprofessionally to her staff. I then discovered than Sarah was in fact a manager which made the situation even worse.

I ordered the Chicken Wrap... I might as well have ordered a salad. With there being only 2-3 little chunks of chicken there was a humongous amount of lettuce. Not only was I hungover but I was annoyed, so I told them politely and they simply said oh sorry and walked off. Not cool, free nandos should have come my way.
