Cheeky peek at new-look Lincoln Nando’s

Chicken lovers rejoice! Nando’s is back on the menu in Lincoln this week as the restaurant finishes a major refurbishment.

As previously reported, the popular chicken restaurant on the Brayford Waterfront was closed for a month-long refurb.

New seating, art work and lighting have been installed ready for the restaurant’s reopening on Thursday, October 4.

The refurbishment has seen the restaurant move away from its Portugese style in favour of a brighter and fresher South African look.

As part of that move to a lighter look, the restaurant has removed its bamboo ceiling to show off the building’s rooftop windows.

Pippa Slater, project manager at Nando’s, told The Lincolnite: “It was important for the refurbishment to work with the Brayford Waterfront building and show off its design.

“The space now looks a lot brighter and that’s part of Nando’s shift from its Portugese inspiration to a more South African feel.

“Every refurbishment that we do aims to make the restaurant more eco-friendly, so we have used reclaimed wood, LED lighting and improved the kitchen.”

The walls of the restaurant are all covered in original pieces of South African art, while other features reflect the unique curve design of the building.
