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.

  1. I'm not sure I'd give a pub that name. It invites one to check out the claim and find it wanting.

  2. Thanks Gerald for your contribution in ABC Wednesday! Hope to see you in the next round!

  3. What? Possible false advertising?

  4. I bet they are enjoying all the football from the World Cup in there!

  5. The World Cup would feature prominently in there. Perhaps it's meant to be an ironic title.
