Moberly Pub owner celebrates her 10th year in business

It has been a great 10 years of food and fun at the Moberly Pub.

Linda Pecora enjoys some appetizers at the packed Moberly Pub during their Thursday Wing Night.

Anyone who has lived in Golden for a while knows that the Moberly Pub is the place to be on a Thursday night.

Wing night at the pub, that is nestled away in the Blaeberry, has become a tradition for a lot of people, and owner Susan Milum can often be found in the kitchen by herself, cooking food for a packed pub.

“As of April 1, I’ve owned this place for 10 years,” said Milum. “We (her and her husband at the time) knew the pub was for sale, so we decided to go see if we could buy it.”

There have been some ups and downs in the past 10 years, but Milum has found a family in her business.

“I enjoy running it 99 per cent of the time. It’s been pretty great. There’s some really good people who come in here,” she said.

“We have a lot of groups who come in every week.”

Blaeberry residents come in on a regular basis, and Golden residents often make the drive along Upper Donald Road to come out to Moberly, but the pub also sees quite a few out of town visitors.

“I actually get a lot of repeat customers who are traveling the highway, and drive in to eat,” said Milum.

It’s hard to predict what nights are going to be busy in a rural pub, so Milum has become accustomed to doing whatever job needs doing, and often ends up working the kitchen solo on busy nights.

“I’m here all the time, doing whatever needs to be done. You have to do what you have to do,” she said with a chuckle.

Hard work is a key component to success, but Milunm wanted to thank the community for helping make her pub what it is today.

“The community support we’ve received from Golden has been great,” she said. “I can’t thank them enough.”
