A first visit for me and the first in many years for my friends. The new owner has obviously spent a lot of money re-vamping the restaurant and outdoor bar area and the views across the river are great, even on a grey December day. He was very convivial and we wish him well with the enterprise.
The food was ok - nothing special, and the cod in particular was a little disappointing. Being next to the sea we hoped for a plump freshly caught fish - I rather think it had jumped out of the freezer ready bread-crumbed however. We would have had a dessert and/or coffee but no-one returned to offer these so we paid and moved on.

Snatchems is in a terrific spot with the River Lune just a few metres from the front door and on really high tides judging by some of the old photos on the pub walls it,s been through the front door! For dining you can either be seated in the old part of the pub with it,s beamed ceilings and lovely old fireplace or you can choose the relatively new dining room with it,s elevated position which gives great views over the winding Lune and it,s abundance of wildfowl.
We arrived just before noon and we both chose the regular breakfast of eggs (2) bacon, fried bread,sausage and beans. Lovely friendly staff, beaut location and a hearty breakfast to kick off our day. Does it get better than that? Oh,perhaps it does as i didn,t notice any Real Ale at the bar? Perhaps i missed it but anyway the occasional top pressure beer has never caused me any problems!

When this place was initially reopened we were so excited at the possibility of some yummy food!

We often go in for drinks and the setting is lovely, the extension and refurbishment is very tasteful.

I just feel the place has so much potential and if there was a proper chef, we would eat there so much more. Ive been waiting and waiting to write this review but still no chef.

The food is very ...well basic and never changes. Ending on a plus though the breakfast is lovely!

This is the first time I have been in for years and I will be definitely using again.

The meals are good value, they are good size portions and very tasty.

Inside it looks great in both the old part and the extension.

The staff and management were very friendly and welcoming.
