We’ve landed at Gatwick!

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

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!

New card, new tricks! #NandosCard

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

We’re absolutely delighted to announce the launch of the Nando’s Card – our brand new electronic loyalty scheme designed to give you, our fans, more rewards than ever!

It’s really simple. Each time you tuck into PERi-PERi chicken, you’ll earn a Chilli, and Chillies bring rewards! Three Chillies earns a reward that can be spent on the spot or banked for a future visit, meaning you can store all of your hard earned rewards and claim them whenever you wish.

You can grab your very own Nando’s Card from any of our UK or Republic of Ireland restaurants from today, which comes packed with a flyer to explain how it all works, and a free Chilli to get you started on your road to rewards!

There’s now a greater selection of rewards – including veggie options and those of you who prefer their chicken off the bone! Here’s a breakdown of the meal rewards:
- Green Reward – Collect 3 Chillies
o Get a ¼ chicken or any appeteaser
- Orange Reward – Collect 6 Chillies
o Get a ½ chicken or any single wrap, pitta or burger
- Red Reward – Collect 10 Chillies
o Get a whole chicken or any single combo meal


Registering your Nando’s Card online at allows you to check your rewards balance via the Chilli Wheel, as well as hear all the latest news directly from us. And best of all, you can keep your rewards safe even if you lose your Nando’s Card, and add Chillies at a later date by requesting a “forgotten card” code in the restaurant. We’ve got you covered!

And for those panicking about the numerous rewards built up on your paper Loyalty Rewards card – do not fear, your Chillies are not lost! We’ll still be accepting rewards on the old Reward Card until 30th June 2014.

The Nando’s app has also received a shiny new makeover and comes packed full of new features including a calorie counter, nutritional information, a restaurant finder and a scribble pad for jotting down food orders. The Nando’s app also allows you to register your Nando’s Card and check your Chilli Wheel and rewards balance on-the-go from Apple or Android devices (coming soon).

We hope you have fun with it all, get your mitts on all those rewards and remember to let us know what you think (#NandosCard).

Yesterday something big happened – we welcomed our millionth follower to the Nando’s Twitter flock. That blows our tiny little minds as it seems to have happened so quickly, right before our eyes, and it couldn’t have happened without all (million) of you.

So, to celebrate that there’s now over a million of us PERi-PERi lovers all in one place (and the fact that we now get a special ‘M’ on our profile), we couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than doing what we do best – showing some #NandosLove to some of our fans.

From filling your timeline with our daily dose of PERi-PERi-related news, to helping us wish Niall happy Birthday – it’s been a journey and we’d like to say thanks for getting us here.

We’ve already sent some goodies out to a few fans (as a little surprise) and throughout the day we’ll be picking some of you (some at random, some not so random) to say an extra special thanks to.

So, keep your eyes on your timeline and your phone close to hand. There might just be some #NandosLove heading your way today.

Love, Peace, and PERi-PERi.

This week saw London Scottish players swap rugby balls for PERi-PERi chicken, as they tried their hands at being Nando’s staff on Wednesday at our Hill Rise Nando’s in Richmond. Fans flocked from far and wide to see the boys don aprons and man the grills and tills to keep our hungry customers happy.

After everyone had eaten to their heart’s content, the players sat down to enjoy a team meal and reflected on the rigors of working on the grills at Nando’s. Although they gave it a great try and had damn good handling skills, they were no match for our Nandocas.

Thanks again to the London Scottish boys, who coped with the heat of our chicken and make us proud. And we hope you have a clucking good end to the season!

Snow update: There are no closures – for now!!

Friday, January 18th, 2013

All of our restaurants are due to open as usual today. However we know how unpredictable this weather can be! So if you’re in an area with loads of snow or think there’s a chance we might not be open please give the restaurant you wish to visit a call beforehand. Just in-case Jack Frost has paid a visit before you! We’d hate you to have an annoying wasted trip if we have to close early.

Stay safe and keep warm.


Two New Openings (and a new way to find out what’s next …)
