Good & Slow

Good food but slow service. After ordering we were told a number of dishes were either off the menu or limited.

I know this place is known for rubbish service but we walked out today as we waited 30 minutes for 2 coffees that never came. We're continuously ignored, it didn't look particularly busy and counted about 5 or so staff. Spend your money elsewhere!

The 2 for 1 cocktails offer runs all night which is the main reason my friends and I tend to go to the Slug & Lettuce in Harpenden. It's one of very few actual bars in the area but it also plays good music and has a DJ on which adds to the atmosphere. The bar staff were making my... More

Had a great night with five other friends doing their cocktail making. Had a great guy Ajab overseeing the proceedings. He was really easy to get on with and patient! I must admit I wasn't expecting to go behind the bar on a Friday night to make the cocktails but the rest of the staff didn't mind! It's great value... More

I come here a lot with both my family and friends, love the atmosphere, food and above all the customer service. Prices are so reasonable, especially On Mondays when it's half price! Though ive ever made it down on a Monday, I'd expect the food is still good. The staff are so efficient and friendly. I've been in here both... More

Really nice food, varied menu at reasonable prices. Cocktails at 2 for 1 are great! They have lots of midweek deals as well which seem good value. The decor is now really nice & modern so it does not feel like just a 'pub' anymore. Lots of people now lunch there.
