I'd been to the slug and lettuce a few weeks before for a colleagues leaving drinks, the service was good and the food came out fast. Whilst there I had seen a promotional advert mentioning 50% off all food on Mondays. I decided to come back and the service was absolutely appalling! Tables weren't getting cleaned, dirty plates just left.... More

A good variety of food in the menu, catering for children too. Can get busy, but it is worth the wait!

This place is awful no other word to describe it! We went for breakie and ordered straight away as we knew what we wanted! Coffee came way after breakfast itself! Then to top it off breakie was cold and ever so slightly rank! Wouldn't go back ever again! Most slugs are good so don't know why this ones so bad!... More

We visited this week, sat outside as it was a lovely evening. It was a Monday, all food is half price on Mondays so you are not able to book ahead, just turn up. We arrived just before 7pm , no problem. Service was brilliant, the waiter really looked after us very well, advising that there was a 45 minute... More

Decided to have a working lunch with two colleagues at this venue and requested a quiet table. We were shown to a table for 6 people and there was only 3 of us. We had space to eat, drink and work. The food and attention received from the staff was wonderful. Will be returning.

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
