Whitbread’s family pub brand, Brewers Fayre, has announced its first opening in five years with the launch of a new site, the Willen Dragon, in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

The pub will open its doors on Monday 4 July 2022, and will be located by Willen Lake, joining the portfolio of 152 UK Brewers Fayre pubs.

The family-friendly venue will feature a refreshed contemporary design, with a total of 357 covers including 164 outside. The pub will also feature an eclectic mix of furnishings with banquette seating and feature group dining tables, with an open kitchen, carvery area and long, statement bar.

Exciting development

Rebecca Donaldson, commercial marketing director at Whitbread, which also owns Premier Inn and Beefeater, said the team was “excited” to open its first Brewers Fayre site since 2017 as it looked to grow and develop the brand.

“As our new flagship pub, the opening marks a fresh and contemporary redesign of Brewers Fayre, updating the much-loved brand for our diners, while still delivering on the great value and quality food and service we are known for,” she added.

Outside will be home to an expansive garden with an outdoor bar, covered areas, beach-style huts, an outdoor children’s play area and water station for dogs.

What's on the menu?

The menus will follow the pub’s all-day dining format, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with a spotlight on pub classics like burgers, an all-you-can-eat breakfast, salads and grills, as well as a number of vegan and veggie dishes. Sundays will play host to a carvery, freshly prepared on site by chefs with a choice of meats, veg and bottomless trimmings and gravy.

“We look forward to joining the fellow businesses and attractions at Willen Lake for the summer and welcoming our new locals into the pub,” said Donaldson.
