Lovely full English breakfast.

My husband and I visit the Slug & Lettuce on a regular basis, especially for the breakfast., Not only is the food very good, everyone of the staff are extremely friendly, courteous and always ready to help , if needed. I really do not understand how customers justify criticising it. If... read more

Firstly, I've made a trip advisor account just to emphasise how much i love this place to start a night out on Friday or Saturday night. Everyone should try it out! I used to come into the Slug and Lettuce often, but hadn't visited for a while. Myself and a group of friends have started to come in to the... More

Visited what used to be the best bar in St. Albans. Best pre club bar around! Not only was it good music but it was a great atmosphere to. Now..... Well now since Regency Security took over the bar and kicked out the best and nicest doorman about the place is a dive. Drugs galore! Under age galore! And useless... More

It's a rare event to report so negatively on a restaurant. From the get-go the staff displayed breathtaking ineptitude: a baby's chair encrusted with food, a simple order of drinks delivered part-filled and a child's meal left overlooked for some 15 minutes on the side until they were asked for a progress update. All simply awful.

We have enjoyed our last two visits to the Slug & Lettuce on a Monday when they offer a special discount on food. The 10oz Rib eye steak was very tasty, and the two for one desserts were delicious. The service was good and very welcoming. For a long time we stopped going to the Slug and Lettuce as it... More
