Me and my partner had lunch here the other day and the service was just excellent. We were made to feel welcome and our waitress made time to make us feel like the only people in the venue. The food was also very good and because we also used vouchercloud, it was really good value too. Would recommend to anybody

Slow service, awful draught. And get in before 9.30pm if you want to stand any chance of getting food. Really an exercise in how not to run a pub/bar!

Just returned from holiday and trying to keep the Moroccan theme going had a Moroccan Salad at the Slug and Lettuce. I was not disappointed, the service was excellent in particular a young man who was very attentive but not 'in your face'. Sweet pototae chips were to die for, so all in all a very enjoyable experience. We will... More

Early on a Sunday morning to have a town centre casual dining facility offering a good quality breakfast menu with freshly brewed coffee is a delight to the palate. Looking forward to a repeat on my next visit to Harpenden. Mike G.

I went here today (with a friend) for the first time ever. I ordered the Lasagne and onion rings. It took 35 minutes for the food come to us. And it was not nice at all. The base of the Lasagne was all burnt and the food was hot in some areas and cold in others. The Onion rings where... More

Came here on a Sunday night with my other half for a cocktail. We are both in our twenties so don't mind a vibrant atmosphere. On our visit were greeted by sticky floors, tables, bar. Arrogant and poor bar staff who have clearly not been able to drink long enough to know how to make a drink. Sevice was beyond... More
