    Nando’s is hiking its prices by 20% in a disaster for chicken lovers across the UK.

    The price of a quarter chicken has now jacked up a whopping £1.70 when you order it with two sides.

    The news of the price hikes comes despite reports that Nando’s is doing rather well on the business front, seeing its revenue pass £1billion last year.

    A quarter chicken on its own was £4.25 in January 2022 – now it's £4.95.

    Meanwhile, the same dish with two sides has jumped from £8.25 to £9.95, TheMirrorreports.

    Increases in the cost of running restaurants and buying ingredients were the excuse of bosses when asked to justify their actions.

    They also reckon that 2023 could be a volatile year, a warning that accompanies their quarter dish price hikes of 16% and 20% respectively.

    But it’s not just the quarter that’s seen prices skyrocket. Half chickens are up too, going from £7.95 a year ago to £8.50.

    If you want that with sides, the leap is from £12.45 to £13.50.

    Likewise, 10 chicken wings are now up from £10.95 to £11.75 and if you want sides with that it’s £15.45 up to £16.75.

    A whole chicken has risen from £14.50 to £14.95 – a leap of 3%.

    Mum-of-two Sheila Thompson, 46, from Buxton, Derby, said: “Nando’s used to be an affordable treat but the way it is going we are going to have to look at dining out elsewhere.”

    Financial analyst Susannah Streeter said: “Restaurants have been battered by higher costs, with essentials rising sharply. Chicken prices have risen by 27% over the year, vegetable fat by 34%, cheese by 28% and bread by 20%.

    “Trips to favourite restaurants may have to be fewer and far between.”

    A Nando's spokesman added: “We continue to work hard to absorb costs wherever we can and are committed to delivering the best value possible for customers.”
