UK holiday company Haven has announced it has signed an exclusive agreement with J D Wetherspoon to operate at its parks.
And the first Wetherspoon pub will open at Haven Primrose Valley Holiday Park in Filey – with the first pint to be pulled in March.
The agreement means that Haven is the first and only UK holiday park operator to enter a commercial partnership with the pub company.
Haven has invested over £170m in its parks over the past year and the agreement with Wetherspoon’s forms part of another £4 million investment being made to expand the food and drink offer to holidaymakers.
Haven said: “The new pub will replicate the very best of the Wetherspoon offer and is aligned with Haven’s family-focused mission of providing great value experiences for all families and couples to enjoy.”
Peter Blake, chief operating officer at Haven, said “We are thrilled to be the first holiday provider to partner with one of the UK’s leading and much-loved pub operators. This new venture underlines our dedication to growing our food and beverage partnerships and offering for our holidaymakers and holiday homeowners.”
Michael Barron, commercial director of Wetherspoon, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with Haven and are confident that the pub will prove popular with holidaymakers.”
