Have a Snuggly Christmas & Snuggle Up at The Snug Bar

The Snug Bar group (my nearest is St Albans but we visited the one in Hitchin for the menu launch) are offering a fun, simple and impressive Christmas Menu this year.

Mr R and I were invited to try out some of the Christmas menu items recently at the Hitchin Snug Bar.  We sat with a lovely parent blogger and her husband and really got into the holiday spirit!

We delved into the alpine dressing up box and took pictures,
We learned how to make two festive cocktails, a Candy Cane and an Apple Pie. You can book your own Christmas Cocktail Class and learn the secrets of the trade with a group of friends for some real festive fun this December!
We tried the festive sharing platters, potato skins with turkey, cheese and caramelised onion topping; chicken wings tossed in a Bourbon and cherry glaze; mini sausages in a honey & mustard glaze; fig and Wensleydale & cranberry skewers, miniature prawn cocktail; bacon and Brie quesadillas and cranberry & Brie bruschetta. 
There was also a vegetarian festive sharing platter which consisted of Mixed Italian olives; vegetable quesadillas; potato skins with goats cheese and caramelised onion topping; fig and Wensleydale & cranberry skewers; mixed mushrooms in Diane sauce and crumbled blue cheese; beetroot and rocket layered salad; and cranberry and Brue bruschetta.
We got to try the Christmas Burger – a 7oz British beef burger, topped with turkey, Cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, Bourbon & cherry sauce and pickles served with a side of pulled pork in BBQ sauce and skinny fries!

The festive Snug Christmas desserts include Eggnog Cheesecake, The Snug Trifle and Terry’s Chocolate Orange Sunday, all very yummy and indulgent.
They have a selection of different festive menu’s and suggestions to get you and your friends and family in a real Christmas mood.  You can follow The Snug bar on Twitter (@THESNUGBAR) and on Facebook (
Thanks to The Snug Bar Hitchin for a lovely evening.  I was not paid to review or write a positive review. As usual all opinions and photos are my own.
