THE manager of a popular pub in Times Territory has scooped a prestigious industry award.

Karen Roberts, from the North Star pub in Welwyn, has picked up the McMullen manager of the year award - the Hertfordshire-based brewery's highest accolade.

She beat 86 other managers to the gong, having finished runner up in the category last year.

"I'm absolutely over the moon," the 47-year-old said. "It was totally unexpected. We didn't think we'd get it after finishing runner up last year.

Heydon Mizon, McMullen's operations director, said: "We are all very proud of Karen's achievements and I am sure her customers will be pleased for her.
