Landlady says any kids left alone in pub will be given Redbull and told to swear

A landlady has vowed to give kids energy drinks and teach them to swear if they're left alone in her pub.

Parents looking to ditch the kids for a while may want to avoid The Heys Inn in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, where landlady Jo Hunt has put up a warning sign threatening to give abandoned children Red Bull and teach them a few cuss words.

The hilarious notice, which Jo insisted was "just a joke", went down well with regulars at the "dog-friendly and child-tolerant" establishment, LancsLive reported.

"We have four children ourselves, ranging in age from 10 right down to 16 weeks," Jo explained, "and we always joke that we are dog-friendly and child-tolerant.

"All the locals had a giggle about it. If anyone takes it seriously then b*gger them!"

Jo has run the watering hole in Stone Bridge Lane with husband Jordan for a little over nine years and their family lives in the pub, but it's rare for their own children to spend time at the bar.

"We had them singing karaoke on Christmas Eve but it's rare for them to be in the pub," Jo added.

Jo and Jordan have recently signed a contract to stay on at the pub for another five years after enjoying nearly a decade of success as its managers.

But the landlady said the cost of living crisis has begun to have an impact and it will be a case of "balancing what's coming in with what's going out" to keep the pub running as the cost of bills and pints alike increase.

Despite the uncertainty, however, Jo says business at the Heys Inn is still booming.

"The bills are getting bigger but we just have to balance that," Jo said. "But we've got a really good group of regulars and we're doing really well.

"We're really excited about signing a new contract."
