The Slug and Lettuce was my "local" on the way back to my apartment, but it closed last week. Although I "live" in the UK, I work in Jo'burg and the Slug was the closest to a British Pub that I could find. The staff were attentive and polite but it seems the pub has fallen on hard times. Is... More

Me and a friend went to slug and lettuce and when we tried and paid we were told that the card machine was not working, we called the manager to inform him as the table next to us paid using a card. When we asked why we cannot the manager said that the machines are controlled by the Bermuda triangle,... More

Good pub in town, good areas, plenty of seating places and cold beers. Plenty of other things going on in the same area too.

The least any staff at any restaurant can do is acknowledge a paying customer when they enter a restaurant. I am by all means the reason you are there - to serve customers and take my money. After 10 minutes I managed to get someone's attention - I did not see that your restaurant was full - By no means.... More

This is a fantastic Irish style pub in the buzzing Rivonia boulevard. My friends and I try to visit every Thursday when there is live music which creates a brilliant vibe. The Kentucky Beer Cheese Burger is an absolute must and they have excellent craft beers like Brew Hogs number 1. I am not ashamed to say that i have... More

Nice setting. I only went a couple of times, once for Beer and Ribs and another just for the Beer. It is well attended by the locals and I definitely go again

Great selection of beers on tap. Bartenders are a great bunch of lads. Food good if you like pub grub. Only complaint is that its not the best place to watch sport.

On Thursday nights,The Slug and Lettuce (Rivonia) has the most amazing live music. Last night (31 July 2014) was amazing. However, I was deeply saddened and disgusted by the service. Never in my life have I been so disrespected. Upon arrival, a friend of mine and I sat at the bar. The barman saw us arriving and being seated but... More

I’ve only been there on two occasions and both times not to my liking. The last time we went there they passed off some uncooked chicken, yes raw, where the batter was still sticky and the chicken was pink. After complaining they brought us the correctly cooked food. So unnecessary. Will not go back
