Comments - Stand out in our weekly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

Yate Nando's ticked all the boxes as a convenient stop to break up the drive from London to Cardiff for a lunchtime peri-peri fix with free parking right outside and a relatively new restaurant to check out. This Nando's is coming up to its second birthday and has received numerous accolades in its region for breaking targets and being brilliant all-round, which is certainly no surprise based on my experience there!

The staff welcomed me in nicely and gave me a choice of tables. I opted for the right-hand side of the restaurant near the front where plenty of natural light enters the building and the lighting inside is as bright and colourful as you'll see at any Nando's, with the rainbow style particularly well-suited to this restaurant.

I went for the fino pitta because I bloody love halloumi and it didn't disappoint. It was very saucy, spicy and delicious. It's one of those that you can't put down once you pick it up, but that worked well with my three extra hot wings combining nicely with my sweet potato wedges.

Manager Ash and Patrao Adam were very friendly and already aware of RYN which was great to hear. Adam also mentioned the new Christmas menu which is going to be coming out over the coming weeks, so watch this space!
