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.
