Landlady celebrates 21 years at pub
12:00pm Sunday 18th August 2013 in News
THE pub industry is in Julie Bain’s blood.
Her father ran a pub and now she is celebrating having been the landlady of the Crown in Manningtree for 21 years.
Over her lifetime she has completed a degree and spent time teaching but has always been drawn back to pubs.
After 21 years at the Crown Hotel, on High Street, she is Greene King’s longest serving landlady and potentially the longest serving landlady in the country.
Julie said: “I got a degree and became a teacher but after a time I thought I would teach the adults how to have fun."
