THE resort’s oldest pub is under new management.

But new licensees of the The Smugglers Den on Poulton Road, husband and wife Mark and Karen Blenkinship, have vowed to keep the pub just the way everyone knows it.

Mark, a born and bred Morecambrian, said: “We were watching pubs all over the place but when this came up in our own town it made things a lot easier and we grabbed it.

We’re not going to change much. We’ll be keeping it as a real ale pub with no loud music!

“It’s a place for people to meet and have a quiet drink in front of the roaring fire.”
