“Give it a miss”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Visited this establishment on Dec 6 2012 for lunch. There were only three other tables occupied otherwise the place was empty. We were served on arrival with drinks but after 30 minutes waiting for signs of our meal we were informed that the chef was “on his own” and was a bit behind with his orders ? With just 4 tables in use?. We were not aware that two of the other tables who were in before us had also not been served their meals yet. Five minutes later our meal arrived. My smothered chicken was overcooked and my partners wrap was lukewarm and served with discoloured lettuce. Meanwhile one people at one of the other tables donned their coats, paid for their drinks and walked out. The food in was by our standards of poor quality and cooked badly. If this is the typical Slug & Lettuce offering, count us out. This is probably a local management problem as this was our first and last visit to this establishment. My one star is for the waiter who was helpless to improve things

“mediocre english chain pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

the food in this pub/restaurant was fairly basic fare; certainly nothing outstanding, competently cooked and presented but certainly nothing to write home about. not bad as a place to eat but certainly not outstanding.

“Never visit after a holiday period”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Visited with my Wife, daughter and granddaughter just after New Year. There was very little in stock and they created some meals by substituting important constituents with bread!! They should have taken them off the menu! Staffing level was terrible and the poor young waiter was looking after the bar, taking orders and fetching them from the kitchen and serving and clearing tables. Previous visits to other S and L's have been very satisfactory so put this down to timing!! Gave us a voucher for money off after complaining via e-mail.

“Don't knock it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I don't care what anyone says, I like a drink here. Perfect for meeting up with friends after work, or stopping by before moving on in Altrincham.
Easy, friendly, pleanty of buzz, although the music can sometimes be a bit loud for conversation and the TV can be distracting if you're out with anyone who has a short attention span!
Should definitely try the cocktails - great selection and good value early evening.
