Nando's has cried fowl following reports that the Conservative party would offer members discounts at the chicken chain's restaurants.
Tory chiefs had reportedly considered the discount offer as a means to boost party membership, but the casual dining chain has said no political discount card exists.
A party source had told The Times: "The discount card is a very real possibility."
But, a spokesperson for Nando's said: "Nando's has no political affiliations as a brand and no political discount card exists.
"We have a Nando's loyalty card and standard gift cards that anyone can use, and we offer a 20% discount to police, fire services, ambulance service and NHS staff."
