This store on an industrial, retail and leisure park on the outskirts of town wedged between an Ice rink, bowling alley and a cinema with plenty of parking around it.

I entered an empty store, a manager's meeting was going on to the left side which I shall come back to more later.

Really impressed with my experience today. My chicken was a bit dry and Jamie the manager was extremely apologetic and was very quick to replace my complete chicken pitta.
He was extremely polite and courteous and returned to ensure that this chicken in Pitta was ok with me.

Really impressed today with the Fino Platter and kids meals. The staff are always amazing when we visit but today would like to point out how amazing Emma was at the Nandos is Widnes. A child spilt a drink and a customer shouted at the child. Emma stayed calm, diffused the situation and made sure the child was okay. She took the child to his family and cleaned the mess made by the broken glass and spilt drink.

We could not bring our selves to eat are food as the grille who cooked it had a really long disgusting beard that was very off putting. They should not be aloud facial hair that long. The thoughts of it falling in of food was enough to just leave. I used to love the staff here that was always friendly but now it seems to be a rock/punk run business . All long hairs with beards, tattoos and piercings with big tall doc martin boots on. Very unclean dusty restaurant.

This was my 3rd visit to the widnes branch' It was very busy and all the staff were very busy but all had a smile on there face. Lovely atmosphere and a staff member named Leanne or Anne got me some cutlery and side plates as i forgot to get them myself, she was very friendly and polite and brought my cutlery to me as well as stop to have a conversation :~). Lovely staff so well done to the new restaurant!

In St. Helens for the day - so what a great opportunity for a slight detour to the newest opened branch in Widnes! It's located in the newly opened "The Hive" leisure park, with a Superbowl, Reel Cinema and Frankie and Benny's in the same patch, with hundreds of free parking spaces right outside.
