Nando’s in Eastbourne has been affected by staff and food shortages.

This story has been making national news over the last 24 hours.

The restaurant group has had to shut around 50 outlets temporarily after apparently running short of its staple fare: peri peri chicken. The branch in The Beacon is open for eat-in and collect only.

A Nando’s spokesperson said: “The UK food industry has been experiencing disruption across its supply chain in recent weeks due to staff shortages, and a number of our restaurants have been impacted.

“However, we can confirm Nando’s will be lending seventy of our brilliant team members to support our key suppliers – working in partnership to help get things moving again.”
