Very nice food but disappointing service

There was a good selection of dishes on the menu & the food that we chose was lovely but unfortunately the service was quite poor. Even though the restaurant was quiet, we had to ask for cutlery & the staff 'forgot' to serve our desserts....until we reminded them.

It took 20 minutes to order drinks, another 40 minutes to get them and then order food and then waited half an hour for that. Fortunately we all had plenty to talk about so amused ourselves. One waitress seemed to be doing ALL the work whilst four other members of staff stood behind the bar looking miserable. If it wasn't... More

Had a big friendly welcome when we first entered the Slug and Lettuce. It was beautifully clean.. Drinks came very quickly and our meals came in good time. They were beautifully presented and a pleasure to eat. Aroma was fantastic, different flavours, and textures - the taste was to die for. Dessert was also special and the chocolate sharing fondue...

I visited Slug and Lettuce at 10am this morning to have breakfast with my partner. On arrival the waitress was very friendly and quick to serve us, shortly after taking our order the supervisor came over to ask us if we were in a hurry and if it was ok to wait 5-10 minutes for our breakfast as there was...

Waited a bit too long for a waitress to come over when we arrived. She took our order for drinks and food but then we saw our drinks order sit on the bar for 15 minutes while waiting staff just walked past it and customers who went to the bar got served. Husband went to bar to see why our... More

As luck would have it, the night of our visit to Chichester was a Monday, when The Slug gives 50% off all food! We had nice salads although the chicken and mango one I first wanted was unavailable due to absence of mango. However we were then persuaded to share a salted caramel and choc fondue which was yummy.
