My wife and I travel down to Plymouth from Leicester around 6 to 8 times a year to visit my youngest son Joe (my little baby boy, but don't tell him I said that) who is at university there reading English. It is a long journey as you can imagine. On arriving on our first visit we asked the hotel receptionist about local eateries, she recommended the Nando's at the Barbican, so we decided to give it a try.

We were really pleasantly surprised by the genuine friendliness of the staff, their honest in their assessment of waiting times was spot on as it always seems to be, we were handed menus to peruse and when a table became available we were served promptly and courteously. the food was very nice and the restaurant was clean and well maintained.

We were so impressed, instead of meeting Joe at the hotel; we now meet him and some of his friends at Nando's on arrival in Plymouth. It has become a Smith family tradition to kick off our visit with a Nando's, it does really make the long drive easier knowing what is at the other end. Joe will start his third year in the autumn and our Nando's tradition has never disappointed.

Cheers or Saúde I should say.
