"The Hub" complex in the centre of Milton Keynes, which means Milton Keynes Central train station is just under one mile away. An Xscape complex is only a quarter mile walk away where there is also a Hollywood Bowl and a Cineworld, SnoZone, Airkix and rock climbing and a few late night bars (such as SnoBar and Revolution). There's a further Odeon cinema a couple minutes walk from The Hub and a Tenpin bowling alley by the train station.
Parking: 
There is plenty of reasonably priced parking throughout Milton Keynes - but the rates do vary between car parks. The parking at The Hub is split into two (well sign-posted) sections: Premium and Standard. Premium is £1.20/hr as this is right by the square/restaurant entrance. The Standard parking area is all the way to the end (left) when you enter the parking section and is only 30p/hr standard - and, for the sake of an extra minute walk, you can save some money. Both sections charge from 7am-6pm Mon-Sun.

I'm running out of new Nando's to visit on my trips up the M1, but this was one of the few remaining, so I stopped for a quick lunch. Parking was very easy in a 'Pay and Park' bay within viewing distance of the restaurant itself - and only £1!

Nandos the hub is a restaurant I am quite familiar with as I used to work on Midsummer Boulevard, just a five 5 mins walk down the road from this Nandos location. I have frequently visited here with work colleagues for various gentle Friday lunches during my time working locally and also visited some evenings with friends for dinner over the years however this is my first review of this top 10 rated RYN location.

As much as I love Nando's, regretfully I only go a few times a year. On the 19th of October was my partners birthday, a special dinner was needed for a special occasion. We decided to go to the Hub Nandos in Milton Keynes as the restaurant is much more spacious than the central branch. As there is no designated car park for the hub we parked by some office type buildings across the road and waited for the rain to stop.

You can tell when you've had a young chicken in nando's by the juicy tender meat and supple skin. I certainly worked up an appetite for my meal and they did not disappoint. I don't know why this branch is hidden away behind the jury's but i hope all the other branches in milton keynes have the same level of service otherwise it is wasted here.

This store in the Hub area of Milton Keynes whilst marked up as Midsummer boulevard is closer to Avebury Boulevard in the corner of the central square surrounded by other eateries. I parked off Midsummer when I was lucky enough to find a parking space which were in very high demand. Parking was free after 6pm but quite expensive during the day time.

I attended Nandos with my brother in law and my finacee and the service given to us by Jason was exceptional. He remembered us from the last we had dined. The food came quick and it was delicious. The Hub MK Nandos is one of our favourite Nandos which we attend regularly and enjoy the atmopsphere the place creates. We would recommend the Hub MK Nandos to several of our friends and family.

This Nando's is located in "The Hub" complex in the centre of Milton Keynes, which means Milton Keynes Central train station is just under one mile away, so an easy 15 minute walk - and it is also well sign-posted by car.

This is one of 3 Nando's in Milton Keynes, but in my opinion it is the best. It's located in the upmarket Hub district. This branch is always clean and the staff are always friendly and professional. Service is always very good and rarely are you kept waiting. All in all a Nandolicious experience!

This Nando's has never failed to impress me!!! The staff are wonderful and i can not praise them enough. Compared to the 2 other Nando's in milton keynes they both fall short of the delights of eating here.

Parking is £1 for up to 4 hours right outside in a car park although you do need to pay by credit/debit card over the phone.
