This Nando's used to be my local Nando's for nearly four years, so it was only right when re-visiting my former home, I popped in for some chicken. I arrived by rail, and made the short walk through the town centre to Tuesday Market Place, where Nando's is located. The exterior is very impressive, and the inside equally so, so I was glad to be back!

I entered the outlet, and was taken straight to a table by a friendly Nandoca. They observed the usual pleasantries and questions, and I was left to ponder the menu. After a short period, I went to place my order, which was pleasant, and quick, before returning again to the table.

The outlet is quite large, and contains three areas. The first, as you enter, is a long room with a very tall ceiling. There are a number of tables and chairs in this area, some of which are higher 'bar' style on the left, and normal low seating on the right. The till and grill is located right at the back. The second area is to the right of this seperated mainly by a large column and evidence of where a wall used to be, and contains further seating, some of which is in a round-style sofa. The third is the toilets, which are in the rear right hand corner of the outlet. The cutlery and sauce point is near the till and grill.

My meal arrived after waiting a mere 8 minutes, and was just as I had expected. Ordering a quarter chicken medium with chips and garlic bread, the chicken was quite well cooked although a little too crispy in places. Chips were light and fluffy, with the garlic bread very tasty. The meal was quite quickly munched, washed down with some orange soda, before having to leave to attend the main reason why I visited King's Lynn.

This Nando's is in an old Bank, located on the corner of the Tuesday Market Place conservation area in the heart of King's Lynn old town. There is parking available in the Tuesday Market Place, charges apply. Additionally, the bus and rail stations are not far from this outlet. There is a Wetherspoons pub and Prezzo at the opposite end of the market place, a pharmacy directly opposite Nando's, a bank to the left, and the Corn Exchange (theatre) is also within the Tuesday Market Place area.

Overall quite a nice little outlet, in a very impressive building with impressive surroundings. Certainly worth a visit whilst passing the town, but I wouldn't say it was worth a specific trip if you are not in the area, as King's Lynn isn't the easiest place to reach and is quite isolated in terms of other Nando's locations (nearest being Norwich, Peterborough, and Cambridge!).
