Description: A unique bar and restaurant set in the heart of the city amongst ancient picturesque streets. We have a great reputation for quality food and drink. During the day The Slug And Lettuce York is a family friendly hub for breakfasts, lunches and coffee. In the evening we transform into a vibrant cocktail bar and a great meeting place for those after-work drinks. We also have a beer garden ideal for relaxing afternoons.

Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Came across the slug and lettuce while wandering around York. Friendly welcome and our order was taken quickly, good service. The food arrived quick and was piping hot. Really tasty food and decent prices too. Enjoyed the meal here and recommend a visit.

“Very pleasantly surprised, child and diet friendly”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We needed somewhere to have a nice but not overly pricey lunch, serve us quickly and accommodate young children (highchair, space for pram). We ended up in the S&L purely as we were passing but it worked so well that we will definitely go again. As it was a Sunday, both kids ate for £1 each. They had a drink, main course (protein carbs and veg) and ice cream and decent portions too (lunch the next day for the youngest too). There was an interesting variety of healthy options (including slimming world friendly) and an under 500 cal menu. I balanced it by a yummy sticky toffee pudding, on a buy one get one free deal. So in total we saved about £18! The photos on the menu are not quite how the food turn out - but only a minor fault. The waiters were very friendly and great with kids.

“Not bad”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Not a huge fan of chain bars but the cocktails here were great so thought I'd give them a mention. Had a getaway with my fiancee for a few days in York. Spent all night here one night, trying one cocktail after the other with the BOGOF deal.

Didn't try the food so can't comment on that. Atmosphere wasn't fantastic but service was good, so had a better night than expected really.

“Wouldn't serve us!!!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We got a taxi from the racecourse ( £6.50 added on before the start of the journey due to it being a raceday!!!) Robbers, anyway the Slug & Lettuce is "the" place to go according to the Taxi driver. We started to order our drinks when a guy behind the bar came up and said they wouldn't serve us as we had my 16 year old grandson with us despite the fact he was only going to have a coke!! Anyway ended up having to leave so had to get another taxi back to the hotel - well expensive!!
