What’s not to like about The Snug? It’s cosy, it’s quirky, it’s on a train station platform and it serves superbly kept craft beer in a really welcoming and pleasant environment. £3 a pint is also not to be sniffed at. The Snug is a...More

Combining our love of good beer and trains makes this a perfect spot. Add friendly people and dogs and it couldn't get any better. You can tell this place has a great reputation as we just barely squeezed in.

Sorry for the late response but no, we don't sell food other than crisps, peanuts, pork scratchings etc. However, the Refreshment Rooms on the station do serve excellent sandwiches, lunches and a top quality breakfast.
