We visited The slug and lettuce whilst starting at the Malmaison hotel. We were a bit dubious, as it's a chain of pubs and you never really quite know what sorry of quality it will be, but we were pleasantly surprised. The menu was carried, the did well priced and the meals were gorgeous.....freshly cooked, service quick, and food delicious.

I booked a table for over 30 guests for a big celebration. We were sent out a menu and needed to pre-order and pay a deposit due to the size of the party. 2 weeks before the event, I had a phonecall from the manager to say they had to cancel our booking as they were having refurbishments. I struggle... More

Had meal here this week. Restaurant was quiet but service was slow. Waiting staff fairly friendly, but could do better. Food was okay although some of my fellow diners were unhappy with the small size of some of the portions. Some music was playing but couldn't make it out - just an annoying noise. Will not be rushing back.

I visited the place with four friends and we each ordered a different plate + some starters. First, it took very long, Second, the quality, specially of the meat was not good at all, and we where charged 40$ per person..without wine or dessert. Not worth it
