Carol's dream comes true as she takes over Blackburn pub

Blackburn Citizen: Carole Hughes toasts her new venture Carole Hughes toasts her new venture

CAROL Hughes’s dream has come true after she took over the Manxman Hotel, Manxman Road, Blackburn.

Carol said she had lived round the corner from the pub for years.

She said: “I have wanted it for years.

I have lived round here and been a regular in the pub in the past.”

The pub has been redecorated inside and reopened earlier this month.

Work on the function room is ongoing and is expected to be finished by the end of October, when it will be available for functions and entertainment will be put on.

Carol also said the pub is looking for darts teams and a football team.

Anybody interested can enquire behind the bar.

Don't know about the arrers but if you raise a football team, there's another one just down the hill who won't be pleased about the reduction in the gate that'll result.
