Doncaster Rovers aces Harry Forrester and Luke McCullough were among the guests at the opening of Doncaster’s first branch of Nando’s.
The stars, fresh from Tuesday night’s 0-0 draw with Notts County at the Keepmoat Stadium, dropped in to the Lakeside restaurant along with Doncaster Rugby League Club favourites Tom Holt and Alex Palmer. Superfan Kerri Gillespie of Askern was also in attendance.
The 110-seater restaurant, designed in Nando’s unique Afro-Portuguese style, boasts several giant pieces of artwork, including a portrait of Nelson Mandela and lots of unique lighting fixtures, along with booths and spaces for larger groups of diners.
The opening has also created more than 32 new jobs for the area, ranging from cashiers and grillers to assistant managers.
