There is a Cineworld next door to Nando's in the new Hive section. Stoke-on-Trent train station is under 1.5 miles walk away.
Parking: 
There are 1200 parking spaces at the Potteries - and during the day it is a tad expensive (priced at £1.20/hr Mon-Sat 8am-4pm), but from 4pm-midnight (when the centre closes) Mon-Sat it is priced at just £1 for the whole stay. Sundays are priced at £1.50 for the whole day. During the day if you fancy a short stroll, then you can park for a couple of hours for free at Sainsbury's (on Etruria Road) or Tesco's (on Broad Street).

Our first visit to a Nando's and I was curious as to what all the fuss was about. However, when we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by a very polite and curtious young lady who went on to explain the menu in detail. The food was fabulous and the service outstanding. Will definitely be going again soon.

I had the classic butterfly chicken, chips and corn and it was phenomenal. The store is amazing. Best nandos I've been to

A visit to the brand new Stoke Nando's was the highlight of a relatively successful day in which Arsenal managed to avoid defeat at the Britannia stadium.

Lovely restaurant, I do like how all the restaurants are decorated differently! Greeted immediately and given the choice of table.
I chose the livers (no surprise there), my friend had the butterfly chicken burger and we shared a few sides. Food came out quickly and was hot, and of course very tasty!
Very well looked after by Jim & Joe.
Loads of parking nearby.

OK it was really busy and only just opened but it was not good. Staff were rushed and panicky, not one smile, floor manager was very rude to his staff. Opening nerves you can put that down to, you cannot excuse overcooked dry chicken though. Two of us had butterfly chicken, much smaller than other nandos and really dry so much so you couldn't eat some parts. My son had half a chicken which wasn't dry but tasteless he had it medium but said it didn't taste of anything.

So the wait is finally over and Stokies have their Nando's! No more driving to Derby, Manchester or Birmingham... they can instead all go "up Hanley Duck"... and up Hanley I'm sure they will go in their thousands! Thanks to the very kind chap Jim, I got to go to one of the practice days just before this Nando's opened.
