Good & Slow

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

We though we would give it at try on "Happy Monday" as it is 50% off the food bill... Well... Never coming back again. The service was really slow, we waited 50 mins for our Nachos starter which was really awful. Tasted like deep fried oily tortilla swamped in sour cream and guacamole. After a further 20mins came then our... 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.

Decent food and atmosphere. Food and drink is a tad on the expensive side. Service is okay. Nice decoration.

While the slug and lettuce has a lively atmosphere, I would not recommend coming here for anything other than a Friday night. The food was of very poor quality. Dining on a Wednesday evening, I was told that 3 items on the menu that I tried to order were not available due to their busy 2-4-1 Monday deal. In my... More
