Happy Christmas Everybody

Jules next to the bar.
Last week we went into The Snug for the first time since we closed in October and it really is looking good.

The plastering is well on now and the toilet floor has been replaced, there will also be new toilets and wash basins going in. The ceiling has yet to be replaced but it looks quite good looking up and seeing beams above. But it really does need a ceiling.

We were there primarily to let the lads know what colours we wanted the walls painting and what colour floor coverings we wanted but the really good news is that, as things stand, the provisional date for the contractors to hand the building back to Network Rail has been brought forward from February 19th to February 14th. Of course things can change, as we have learnt from bitter experience this year, but that is encouraging.

As things progress we will keep you updated here and via Twitter (@TheSnugMicropub) and Facebook (

So that's it for this year unless anything dramatic happens. The next time we blog will be the month before we re-open.

Thank you all for your support and friendship over the last five years and especially your continued support and friendship since we closed in October. We both wish you all a wonderfully happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
