Current News

As spring is fast approaching we are having a thorough review of things and hope to be making some really positive announcements very soon. Watch this space.

In the meantime many of you will know already that entry to The Snug is currently via the side door, or gable end door if you prefer. This is because Network Rail have closed off the redundant platform, where our old door used to be, to demolish a parapet wall which is in a dangerous structural state. Updates on here as and when.

On Sunday 19 March we begin our new season of 'Trekking with Sherpa Rowbottom'. Please join us on a pleasant walk along the canal towpath to Bolton-le-Sands and back for a pint in The Snug via the shore. We will be meeting in the Canal Turn car park at 10 00am. The more the merrier.

On Saturday April 1st Thai Kitchen return offering delicious Thai street food from 12 00pm.

Then on Sunday April 2nd we welcome back Haste Theatre. Tickets £10 from The Snug. Full details on the post below.

Thai Food, Theatre and Trips

Many thanks to all who have helped raise so much in recent months for good causes such as Help for |Heroes, Guide Dogs and Bells for St George. All donations have been gratefully received.

On Saturday March 4th we welcome back Thai Kitchen who will be cooking delicious Thai street food at The Snug from 12 00pm. All welcome and we will make sure there will be some light, hoppy beers on that go well with spicy, fragrant culinary delights.

On Thursday 9th March we will be having an informal fundraiser for the  Sue Ryder Charity Shop Morecambe . We are asking people to donate items to be sold in the shop be it clothes, books, kitchen utensils, CDs or anything else that has been cluttering up your shelves, cupboards and wardrobes. Please bring items along but only on the day itself due to storage restrictions.

On Sunday April 2nd Haste Theatre make a welcome return to Carnforth to perform their original fringe production Oyster Boy . They will be performing at 2 00pm in the Furness Hall and joining us in The Snug afterwards for drinks and no doubt more entertainment. Tickets will be £10 and on sale in The Snug in the next few days.

On Sunday April 30th we have one of our Snug Outings. This time we will be visiting Hebden Bridge where there are some fantastic independent shops, pubs and breweries. That weekend is also the Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival which we had no ide about prior to arranging the date. Honestly! The coach will leave The Snug at 10 30am and leave for home at 7 00pm. The price will be between £15 and £20 but has yet to be finalised.

Of course all of these events will include quality drinks and good company.

Second Thursday Is Event Night

Tonight we have our fundraiser for Guide Dogs for the Blind. There has been a cask of Ingleborough Gold kindly donated by Andrew and there will be blind tastings, a quiz and a raffle. There will also be cheese and port.

Just after 7 00pm Alan will be bringing in the latest guide dog he is training. We are aiming to raise £500 but whatever the final amount we will be having another great night.

On Thursday February 9th the lads from Fell Brewery will be joining us for our monthly event night. They will be setting up two keg lines and will be letting us into the secrets of producing cask, keg, canned and bottled beers.

But tonight it's  fundraising for Guide Dogs so hope you can join us.

Guide Dogs for the Blind Fundraiser

We have kindly had a cask of beer donated for our fundraiser on Thursday, many thanks to Andrew. That gets the night off to a flyer for starters.

The fun begins again at 7 00pm and Alan will be bringing in his new guide dog he will be training. The dog is a puppy, new in training and he only gets her tomorrow so will only be with us for half an hour. Andrew will also be bringing in his adopted greyhound, a former racer who ran 125 heats at Belle Vue, Manchester during his illustrious career.

Hope to see you all on Thursday night if not before.
