Nandos has told Gedling Eye its new restaurant at Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield ‘will be opening soon’ after rumours began circulating on social media that it had abandoned plans to open up in the town.

The food giant last year began work on constructing a new unit to house a new restaurant on land previously used by Morrisons for car parking. Work began on a new Starbucks drive-thru at the same time.

Starbucks opened their doors a few weeks ago, which left many in the area questioning why little progress had been made at the Nando’s site next door. This prompted rumours on social media that they had pulled out of plans to open a new restaurant.

Gedling Eye got in touch with Nando’s yesterday to get an update on progress or confirmation they had left the site.

A spokesman for he food giant told us plans we still in place but progress had been delayed by the Covid pandemic.

They said: “I can confirm that the rumours on social media are not true.

“While Covid might have postponed our plans slightly, we are still very much looking forward to coming to Victoria Retail Park.

“We’ll be announcing an opening date shortly.”


  1. Well what can be said for the retail park, apart from utter carnage. Made a trip to Morrison’s late Saturday afternoon and not only is the traffic queuing in the left lane into the retail park because of the drive through McDonald’s at the first roundabout. But on exiting the roundabout for Morrison’s you are hit by more queuing traffic for a coffee drive through. And now a Nando’s…………Getting more like the American’s every day with surgically attached cars.
