Nando's will welcome customers into its new branch off Squires Gate Lane, near Morrisons, for the first time tomorrow.

The South African fast food chain, which specialises in flame-grilled peri-peri style chicken, was first approved by Fylde Council in 2019, at the same time a drive-thru Starbucks was approved next door.

Development began onsite in October that year and two new entrances from the supermarket car park onto Squires Gate Lane were created.

But when the Starbucks opened in April 2021, a Nando's spokesman said they had no definitive date for the opening of the neighbouring restaurant, which was initially supposed to open last year.

"Opening our doors on January 26, with indoor and outdoor seating areas, you can find us by Blackpool Airport, just across from Starbucks."
