Isn't "snug" a lovely word? You would expect the beer to cost more than in the Public Bar, but you could expect a small, cosy, private room where you couldn't be seen from the outside. In contrast to the public bar, ladies would also feel free to sit and have a private drink with friends. Now there is another reason why you might have wanted to drink beer at this pub, and that's tied in to its location - Broadwick Street - and the pub name - The John Snow. More of that another day.
