New hotel and pub open on MKDP land

Premier Inn has opened its sixth hotel in Milton Keynes alongside Willen Lake with a new Brewers Fayre family pub adjacent which has been named The Willen Dragon.

Matthew Green, Property Development Director at MKDP said: “As the city’s most popular park, Willen Lake is a great place to enjoy leisure time and we are pleased to have worked closely with The Parks Trust over several years to help bring these new facilities to life.”

Head of Property at The Parks Trust, Tim Roxburgh, said: “We are delighted to hand over this stunning scheme to Whitbread PLC. Following our acquisition of the land from MKDP, The Parks Trust supported the development at every stage. Whitbread’s much-loved brands will be valuable additions to Willen Lake and it’s great to see their presence growing in the city. We look forward to a long, successful partnership and hope local people enjoy the new facilities.”
