Hertfordshire-based independent pub company McMullen & Sons has announced plans to develop a recently purchased waterside site in Buckinghamshire.

McMullen’s latest acquisition, a plot at Campbell Wharf in Milton Keynes, boasts views over the Grand Union Canal and a new 111-berth marina.

The operator of 39 tenanted and 87 managed pubs, predominantly located across the northern Home Counties, McMullen has revealed that it plans to start construction of a new-build waterside pub at its most recently acquired site in 2020.

The new venue will join the Destination Inns group within the McMullen set-up, which currently boasts 14 sites and sits alongside the operators other managed groups Chicken & Grill pubs, Premium bars and London pubs.

McMullen’s recent openings include the Princess Charlotte​ in Colchester and the Prince Louis​ in Great Notley, both in Essex, and respectively named after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s second and third children.

Detailed plans

Discussing McMullen’s latest project, joint managing director Heydon Mizon commented: “We are delighted to bring another fabulous pub to Milton Keynes, where we previously built one of our Chicken & Grill pubs, the Prince George, Tattenhoe.

“We have been looking for another venue for some time. Each pub is uniquely designed and this one will draw inspiration from its glorious surroundings.

“Construction is expected to start in 2020 after approval of the detailed plans, with the pub set to open eight months later.

“Our Destination Inns pubs aim to provide a seriously relaxed dining experience,” operations director Matt Cotter added.

“Guests enjoy fresh food, world beers and our handcrafted, small-batch production ales, brewed using ‘brewers’ liquor’ (water!) extracted in Hertford from aquifers that run beneath our other pubs and golf course.”
