“went to the Richmond branch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I went to the Richmond branch, on a cold crispy Sunday afternoon, the place was buzzing,
we had initially gone in for a coffee to warm ourselves, however the menu looked so inviting we decided to partake of some food,
Usually i would not go for a steak in a place like this, but the barman who took our orders assured me the quality of the meat was 'pretty good', we were initially thinking of going to a Turkish place in Whitton near Twickenham, , but instead decided to have a late lunch, instead of an early supper, and didn't regret it, the food was far better than you would expect from a pub, the value was amazing, as you have to consider, we were in a beautiful location in one of the worlds most stunning cities, the service (even though we had to pre pay) was very good, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the barman told us there was a delay of at least 40 minutes, but the food arrived in 25, overall a lovely experience, will definately visit again when in the area, ...........also one of the best places to 'people watch'...........any jobs going? lol

“Nice setting by the river.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

On a night out to celebrate my hen night, my friends and I looked for somewhere to eat in Richmond. We ended up at the Slug and Lettuce by the river. The food was OK, nothing special, but delivered quickly. We felt we'd been somewhat ripped off on a pitcher of Pimms - £17 and so full of ice we only got 4 glasses out and that was pretty weak!
Sitting outside by the river was nice, but when we moved indoors it wouldn't be my choice of a night out - dark and noisy. I might've liked it 20 years ago, but I think my choices have matured as I have. Probably great for groups of young friends out for a drink.

“Average feel. half-way between a pub and a bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

I've had a lot of lunches here, and they are about average, nothing special, but not bad either.

This is a nice spot when the sun is out, but the trade off for that is that it's packed and staff cannot handle the crowds - meaning they will run out of food, screw your order or even you need to wait 2h for it.

#Tip: go and order at the bar and sit in the high-chair area (or tv area). It's faster.
If you sit outside, you need to order via the waiter which will take forever.
#Tip2: Go on Mondays. They have 50% off food.

“great customer service and yummy food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

After a stroll in Kew garden then a summy walk along the Thames.. very busy day.. i understand why the served drinks in plastic cups as you are able to take them outside to the River bank...

Good service... shame they didnt have any lemon tart and ice cream.. but they soon came over to tell me and the chocolate brownie was good replacement!!!

Great attmosphere in and out side the pub..
