Hereford happy it finally has a Nando's

FIRING up its grill for the first time yesterday, Nando’s has long been one Hereford Old Market’s most-anticipated new arrivals.

The feeling is mutual, apparently, with the much-loved PERi-PERi chicken king looking to set up in Hereford for some time.

And despite PM David Cameron snapping a cringe-worthy selfie in Nando’s’ Bristol location earlier this week, the chain remains one of the most popular among the UKs youngsters.

Nando’s’ Regional Managing Director, Mark Witherspoon, said: “Hereford’s a town that’s been on our radar for a while.

“The demand to open here has been nothing short of incredible.

“We’re all incredibly excited about opening, and can’t wait bring a little extra heat to Hereford this summer.”

It will mean those in the mood for some of the restaurant’s patented flame-grilled chicken will no longer have to make the trip to Worcester – and with the Odeon opening on May 22 the Old Market will be able to offer the two Friday Night favourites within minutes of one another.

Among those chicken-lovers taking to Twitter to express their excitement is James Watters (@Watters20) who tweeted: "Don't think I can resist Nando's any longer! I need chicken #piripiri #nandoshereford".

He was joined by Roz Pringle (@roz_pringle), who tweeted: "Nando's in Hereford is now open. Life Made."

And PoshJack (@Jackhope01) who said: "@NandosUK thanks for my free meal for being first customer in #NandosHereford Been looking forward to it's opening for ages."

The eatery has room for 110 guests, and is located to the East of the new development, alongside the six other restaurants.

Frankie & Benny’s and Miller & Carter have also opened their doors this week, with Chimichanga, Prezzo, Zizzi and Wagamama soon to join them.

If they been wanting to come to Hereford for some time, what was stopping them? There are and have been plenty of premises in Hereford.

None of these new shops and restaurants had any interest in Hereford, i will carry on supporting the companies that came here on their own accord and not because they was done a deal.

I don't mind all the foreigners coming to live here but why do we have to eat all this foreign food. First Nandos then what. I'd much rather have more traditional English food like a good curry or a Chinese take away.

I don't mind choice and choice is always a good thing and i am not against these food places coming to Hereford, even if I doubt I will ever use them. but I just think that they could have come here before if they was that interested. these restaurants are not thing to be honest, I have not even been in McDonalds for over 30 years, I prefer small local cafes.

These new places for food now offer a wider choice and more jobs, so that has to be a plus! I bet they all have to close at 11pm though which will be a shame.

God give me strength, what atrocious journalism.

First they just print the press release BS from Nando's themselves, not even bothering to edit out the subjective buzzwords like 'excited'. (Anyone's who's seriously excited about a new fast food chicken option needs to get out more, IMHO.) Then they season it with some inane comments from Twitter, saving themselves the effort of getting real quotes or finding out if other people are anti it and even indifferent. Did Nando's promise you a load of ads if you printed this garbage? Just guessing.

BTW, it strikes me that GertrudeBeach's comment about 'traditional English food like a good curry or a Chinese take away' might just have been a joke, albeit one cribbed more or less directly from Come Fly With Me.

What is racist about the remark?

The first sentence is a bit ill thought out about the foreigners and foreign food but it does not denigrate foreigners, it merely expresses a preference.
The second part is a rather amusing remark about what has become traditional in our restaurant culture in the UK. i.e Indian, Chinese Restaurants are ubiquitous in our towns and not English Fayre.

It is quite a serious charge to call someone a racist. You really need to be sure of their motives before you level what can only be termed abuse at someone because you may have misinterpreted something they have said.
Perhaps you should ask what they mean before accusing someone of something quite so appalling as racism.

I think you should apologise.

The problem is the jobs are naff, i doubt many got more than a 20 hour contract and pretty close to the minimum wage. so no tax to tax man, which means country is losing out and yet these companies are in a win, win, win situation. I also wonder how many got a contract and if they have I expect it is a short term contract so they can be laid off at any time with no come back.

Give it time and the amount of jobs at this brand new centre, what ever it is suppose to be will become less in less than a couple of years.

People really need to take their blinkers off and look at things in a different way.
There is nothing at this development that would get me excited, people who get excited because some fast food restaurant can't have much excitement in their life.

You make a good point there. Who has the time to go trawling websites and researching the provenance for the food at an establishment. Especially if you are Hank Marvin and have a couple of Lee Marvin kids in tow voicing their desire to comest piri piri chicken most fervently.

It would be committing parental self flagellation to commence a lecture about factory farming and it's moral implications at this point as the bin lids would not give a moneys and simply want their chicken butterfly with hot sauce and and fino side immediately and making them cross town to go to the cafe in the church where they can have a nice slice of quiche may get you lynched by your own offspring from the nearest lamp post.

This of course would be the right thing to do though in my opinion. It's not for me to lecture anyone on the morals of food or it's production or indeed the ethics of businesses such as nandos, but I can safely say my moral compass would not permit me to dine there. The food simply would not taste very good.

I always check the menu before i go anywhere to eat - that way there is no unpleasant surprise when you find out how much some ribs with a bit of meat on is going to cost you, that way you can plan ahead and get a more satisfying meal for less somewhere else (locally owned and locally sourced food to in most cases)

I don't mind all the foreigners coming to live here but why do we have to eat all this foreign food. First Nandos then what. I'd much rather have more traditional English food like a good curry or a Chinese take away.
