“A chain but with a local face”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

In probably the best position in Harpenden. Large and accommodating and open almost all hours. From a simple cuppa to a main meal, it's all here. And a thank you to a loyal member of staff Sophie who is always there with her big smile.

“One of the worst breakfast experiences ...”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Sunday morning breakfast.. how can you go so wrong.. service was diabolical .. the food was just deplorable .. there was no connection at all between waitressing staff and the kitchen ... our poor waitress tried her best, however she was just constantly apologising... certainly we all agreed.. a location to be avoided at all costs for the foreseeable future...

“Don't bother”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We went on a Saturday lunchtime ! We ordered scampi and a burger ! Not very hard to do ! The burger was cremated and scampi had been over fried and wasn't nice ! The waitress was nice ! The manageress not pleasant at all . We had to wait 40 minutes for our food with no apology ! Don't bother with this place

“It really is bad !”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Tried to get in to The Fox last night but car park was full so decided to drive back into Harpenden for a drink and meal.
The wife said lets try the Slug again ! It must of got better since we went last time .

Words fail me .... It was not very busy the staff unbelievable bad and the manager on duty had no idea ! and l mean no idea .

Does anybody from the Stonegate Pub Group ( the owners of the Slug and Lettuce chain ) ever read these comments?

Didn't eat in the end couldn't wait any longer paid for bottle of wine and left ....never again .
