ABC Wednesday: Y is for Your Friendly Local
"Your Friendly Local" it says on the sign above the Jolly Carter.
Well I can't vouch for the veracity of the statement as I don't personally frequent pubs. It has certainly changed hands several times in the past and has had its fair share of "trouble" but it always looks lively when we are passing on Saturday lunchtimes.
In the 1960s the pub hosted the first Italian soccer club to play in the Manchester leagues - see this BBC News archive page.
