Growing food and cocktails concept The Snug is to open its seventh location in Ware in early March. It joins other Snug venues in Cambridge, where it has two, St Albans, Herford, High Wycombe and Hitchin.

It has taken over the lease of Enterprise Inns’ Vine pub in the town. It will have 100 covers. A pop-up style operation will run from 6 March, with a full opening from the spring, when the Snug’s other locations will get a rebranding. The opening will coincide with the tenth anniversary of the brand. 

The Snug founder Giles Fry said: “We are really excited to launch our seventh site for The Snug in Ware. We hope to provide a warm, inviting and up to the minute venue, which locals and visitors alike can enjoy.”
