Good restaurant for breakfast or lunch but a bit crowded on Saturdays.

Food is freshly cooked, generous portions, and well presented.

Staff friendly and the menu is reasonably priced.

Ate there Sunday afternoon during a quiet period and ordered sausage and mash and a Harissa Chicken and sweet potato salad-2 of us eating. Food took nearly an hour to arrive and when delivered was disappointed. chicken was cooked within an inch of its life and was hard so left it on my plate to complain (until my hungry partner then mistook it for left overs and ate it!)- therefore couldn't make complaint as he'd consumed the evidence alongside a big gulp of water to help it go down!

Food can be good here- not all microwaved food like other generic bars and pub chains.

As it was quiet staff were complacent and not on the ball- the table next to us did not have their plates cleared for 30 minutes! Slug prices are steep- not good value for money and service and food standards vary visit to visit. Perhaps better when busy...cost of 2meals and two soft drinks £25.

Well me and my girlfriend went into the slug and lettuce on the 10 of march for to cocktails we waited at an empty bar for 25 minuets before getting served. The bar staff where more interested in talking with each other and barely noticed us at the bar. We then asked for to cocktails which took the bar staff 10 minuets to make we order a 'port star martini' which took along time to make and was poorly shaken resulting in a poor cocktail. The next drink was a simple 'cosmo' and the bar staff didn't even know how to make the most basic of cocktails. She then attempted to make it using vanilla vodka and when trying it was disgusting she then made another after I told her what ingredients needed to be in the cocktail, again was poorly shaken resulting in another poor cocktail. We then asked for the cosmo to be taken of the bill as we had waited so long for a poor cocktail, the girl replied with no! I was nice to you, you can't have it taken off. Overall was extremely disappointed in the service and will not be coming back. If you want a cocktail stay far way from this bar!
