New restaurants opening in Milton Keynes in 2022

Milton Keynes’ independent food scene continues to THRIVE and I am so here for it. What was once known as the place with the concrete cows and roundabouts and five Nando’s is now gaining its own reputation for having a great food scene too. There have been so many brilliant new businesses born out of the pandemic as well as those that continue to succeed and serve us incredible food. I know it can be difficult to keep track of all these new openings and launches, so here are all new restaurant openings in Milton Keynes throughout 2022. I’ll be keeping this blog post updated throughout the year, so if you are opening a new restaurant this year, please email me with the details.

Kobe Steakhouse & Cocktail Lounge

I am super excited to exclusively reveal that a new independent steakhouse is going to open in Xscape. There will be Wagyu and Kobe beef on the menu and you can expect amazing cocktails and classy decor.

Social media pages, teaser images and opening date TBC.

Apollonia Greek Cuisine

A new Greek restaurant called Apollonia is opening on Newport Pagnell high street on Market Hill. It’s in the old unit where Quality Fish & Chips used to be and it’s looking good! There’s not much on their social media pages as of yet regarding menus or opening dates though.

You can see their website here:

Pratty’s Roadhouse

Pratty’s is an independent seasoning brand and they are opening a steakhouse in Central Milton Keynes. Apparently, they’re aiming for a February/March opening and it’s going to be in the old Zen Gardens unit near The Hub.

Follow Prattys Roadhouse on Instagram for updates.


Casalla is a Moroccan vendor that launched during the lockdown in 2020. They did takeaways but went quiet for a while. The good news is that they are back with a Monday night residency at Nonna’s in Woburn Sands! This family-run business offers delicious Moroccan food, filling a gap in the market in Milton Keynes. At £25 for two courses or £30 for three, it’s well worth a go. I see a lot of potential in Casalla and can’t wait to see what this year holds for them.

Back open from Monday 10th January. Message Casalla or contact Nonna’s to book.

Kings Comfort Food

Kings Comfort Food is the ultimate vendor if you want comfort food. Kings do some of the best fried chicken in MK and you can now find them at The Coachmakers’ Arms in Newport Pagnell, every day 2pm – 9pm. The food is unreal and I’m so happy they’ve now got a more sustainable, permanent kitchen.

No need to book, just show up. Order takeaway via MK Eats.


I was lucky enough to get a preview of WYLD last year at a soft launch event and I am very excited for their official launch this year. WYLD is a conscious and experiential food business with a philosophy to re-establish our lost connection with nature and the source of our food. WYLD’s dining experiences bring people back together, both with one another, and with the natural world which surrounds us. Founded by Jonathan Muston this is something that Milton Keynes’ food scene needs!
