#NandosDash in Vauxhall today!

Vauxhall, on your marks, get set, Nan-GO!

Because we just get a kick out of being generous, today we’re treating the chicken lovers of Vauxhall to one of our legendary #NandosDashs.

We will be giving away a free ¼ chicken, single pitta or burger to each of our fans*, on a first-come-first-served basis. You have to eat-in though, so make sure you get your dash on as there are a limited number of seats available (though we’ll try and accommodate as many of you as we can within the hour).

Put your sandwiches back in the fridge, dust off those running shoes and grab yourself some free PERi-PERi chicken!

We’ve landed at Gatwick!

G1Our shiny new Gatwick restaurant has finally opened its doors at London Gatwick’s South Terminal! Holidaymakers and jetsetters are in for one heck of a treat, as our delicious flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken is now available on tap from Nando’s Gatwick every day, from 4.00am until 10.00pm, airside.
We’ve stocked the restaurant with heaps of coffee, fruit, innocent smoothies and soft drinks, and Nando’s Gatwick is also the first and only Nando’s to serve our tasty new Breakfast Roll – a flame-grilled chicken sausage in a Portuguese roll, ideal for those travellers in a rush to get to departure gates. G2And in true Nando’s fashion, the restaurant is adorned with our iconic and bright African inspired design, with the added bonus of runway views and some rather nifty wooden USB eggs to juice your devices while you eat. We’ve got you covered whatever time, whatever you fancy. G3You may have also spotted that our good friend (and newly appointed Captain), Nicola Roberts, helped us open the restaurant this week…Nicola Roberts

Do swing by if you’re flying through Gatwick!
