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?

Works Update

Just to let everybody know that for the foreseeable future our main access will continue to be via the side/gable end door as the scaffolding will be remaining on the redundant platform side by the mainline for some time yet. As it happens many people have commented on how good the new configuration inside is working and want us to continue after the work has been completed. Watch this space.

After five years of attempts by our landlord at repairing the damp and leaks we are just relieved that plans are now in hand to do the structural work required to give us a sparkling, new, fully refurbished Snug.

Many people have asked what the schedule is. All we can say at this stage is that the work has been brought forward a year and we found out a couple of weeks ago that it is being put out to tender. If you hear anything differently then it is mere rumour or speculation and best ignored. As soon as there is any news we will be sharing it.

In the meantime our full list of events is on the board in The Snug and we will continue updating our events and beer lists on Facebook and Twitter.

Our next event is a Cheese and Port Evening on Thursday 20th April. We will be offering complimentary cheese and would ask people to bring along some of their favourite cheese to share with everybody. As well as our usual range of drinks we will have a range of ports (not complimentary!) for you to try.

Thai Kitchen are back on May 6th and in June we will be holding our first Gin Festival to celebrate World Gin Day. But more of that anon.

That's all for now and hope to see you soon.

Weekend Starts Here

What a great week, thank you to all and nice to see so many new faces.

From 12 00pm today (Saturday) we have the wonderful Thai Kitchen back offering delicious Thai street food until late. It would be wrong to eat Thai food without quality beer, wine, cider or maybe a gin so we are open all day.

Sunday we are open from 12 30 but we are hosting the wonderful Haste Theatre and their production of Oyster Boy at 2 00pm in the Furness Hall where we held our beer festivals. Hope you fill the place but The Snug remains open if you prefer a quiet drink.

After the show the girls will be joining us back in The Snug for drinks and a good old fashioned sing-along.

Hope to see you over the weekend.

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.
