Latest News

Our last day open until February, due to major structural work on the building, will be on Monday (2nd Oct) but we are going off with a bang.

We will have our usual range of wonderful beers on this weekend and what better than welcoming our friends Thai Kitchen back on Saturday from 12 00 'til late? Delicious, freshly cooked Thai street food available all day to eat with us or to take away.

There will be nibbles on the bar on Sunday from 12 30 until 4 30. There will also be something to soak up your beer on Monday from 5 00 until 9 00 with our usual delicacies and anything our ever generous regulars bring in for us all to enjoy.

Our estimated re-opening date is February but we are currently looking at some exciting possibilities for opening up in temporary accomodation as near to The Snug as we can. We will keep you informed as things develop.

Looking on the bright side when we do re-open we will finally be in a dry, adequately ventilated building which, for the first time since we opened in 2012, won't leak when it rains.

Hope to see you over the next few days and we will be keeping everybody updated on developments via here, Facebook and Twitter.

Another Update

We have now been informed that we will have to vacate The Snug on 5th October for the structural work on the building to begin. At least I can have the day off on my birthday this year which is October 6th.

We were not so impressed when told that we would be out until February 19th next year. This is after being told repeatedly this last nine months that we would need to be out for around four to six weeks.

We are hoping that Network Rail will accept that this is unreasonable and will ensure that the work is done in a way that reduces our length of closure.

We will keep you informed.

A Further Update

A lot can change in a short time.

Unfortunately we were given information yesterday that has caused further confusion  about the works due to take place at the station.

Once again we have been given conflicting information and are having to seek further advice before we can confirm any future events with the exception of Thai Kitchen on the first Saturday of the month.

In the meantime The Snug remains up and running, we are just putting extra-curricular activities back on hold.

We will update you when we get some clarification.

Bank Holiday Monday-August 28th

We will be open all day on Bank Holiday Monday, 28th August. Open at 12 00pm closing at 9 00pm.

Now the schedule of works at the station is becoming clearer we are planning our next two Snug outings. One will be our famous Manchester visit, including the Marble Arch, the other is still being confirmed but will be another cracker.

Details will be announced in the next week.

Managers are now picking their squads and registering for the new season so hope you can join us.

Just a reminder:

The Snug Beer Festival

As you may be aware there has been scaffolding up at the station since March and our main entrance is now the side door as the redundant platform is closed. As a consequence of the platform closure Carnforth Models have temporarily relocated within the Heritage Centre/Refreshment Rooms.

Despite repeated formal requests from us and Carnforth Models our landlord has still not communicated with us regarding the extent or schedule of the works. Through unofficial sources we believe the work is due to start in August and end in December and that our work should be later rather than sooner in the schedule. As a result of this continued uncertainty we are having to cancel this year's beer festival due for November 17/18.

We are extremely sorry as this has been the station's biggest annual event in recent years and was recently listed in Lancashire Life as one of the county's top six drinks festivals.

Celebrating Manchester Beers

It's been a great week, thank you all.

Now we embark on our Manchester Beer Fest, so please be patient while Jules and I indulge ourselves in celebrating beers from our much loved home city that you rarely,  if ever saw before The Snug opened in 2012.

OK Marble was occasionally spotted this far north. But did you ever get to enjoy the wonderful beers from Track, Squawk, Blackjack, Epicurus, Wildside, Manchester Brew Co or Brightside before The Snug opened? No, because in the true micropub tradition we set out to bring you something original, something that we didn't just copy from other pubs.

So please join us this week until Sunday (14th) in celebrating the cask, bottled and canned beers from Manchester's finest breweries that we love and have enjoyed bringing to North Lancashire.

Remember, we regularly update what's on the bar and other news on Facebook and Twitter, so why not pop onto Facebook and give us a like and follow us on Twitter?
