Dinner at The Anchor, Aspley Guise

19th October 2016

A cosy pub with cushions and warm lighting is good at any time of year, but I grow pretty fond of them come autumn when the evenings begin to draw in. I was invited to try The Anchor in Aspley Guise, a stones throw away from Woburn Sands, just outside Milton Keynes. The evening my […]

Home from home: The George Inn, Maulden

14th September 2016

Their ethos for the refurbishment was to create a ‘home from home.’ Their 122 cover restaurant also has seven boutique hotel rooms which will be up and running later.

Akasaka Japanese Restaurant, Milton Keynes

14th August 2016

Since returning properly to Milton Keynes, I’ve been pretty keen to find some more independent restaurants to write about. Last week, we went to Akasaka for my Dad’s birthday.

Revolución de Cuba, Milton Keynes Review

Revolución de Cuba, Milton Keynes

14th April 2016

New additions to Milton Keynes’ array of restaurants seem to be slowly growing. Whilst everything seems a bit samey, Revolución de Cuba strikes as being a little different. A Cuban Rum bar and Cantina, Revolución de Cuba stands out from the typical restaurants in central Milton Keynes. If you aren’t quite sure what Cuban cuisine is, they describe it […]

Maaya Indian Bar and Kitchen Milton Keynes

Maaya Indian Kitchen & Bar, Milton Keynes

6th April 2016

On Tuesday evening, my family and I headed out to dinner at Maaya Indian Kitchen & Bar which opened in February at The Hub in Milton Keynes. MK is starting to up its game a little bit – in comparison to Birmingham the independent restaurant game is not strong at all but over the past six […]
