Popped in for lunch on the recommendation of a friend . Really impressed with the food and value. This is the first time that I have tried this chain of restaurants but will defiantly be back.

We went in one Sunday morning for breakfast. We were given a complimentary shot glass full of popcorn, which tasted like it been left out for days. The breakfast itself was awful, I had dried bean juice all over my plate, which was obviously from previous use. The bacon was burnt to smithereens and I could not even bear to... More

We dropped in for a lateish lunch at the weekend. There's always a good atmosphere with a mixed clientele, the sharing platter we had was really tasty & good value. If you go a bit later in the day the 2 for 1 cocktails are really good.

My sister and I enjoyed a couple of meals in this bar during our stay in Bournemouth. Saturday night there was a dj and dancing that we enjoyed observing whilst eating our steak. Sunday afternoon was a more mellow affair and I enjoyed a tortilla bowl with salad whilst my sister would recommend the Lasagne. Nice food, good service, fair... More

It was a Friday night at the end of September. We had drinks and a sharing plater. The place was clean and lively. The food came out very quickly, though it was a bit dry it was a good price. The music was up to date standard stuff, there was a good chair to floor ratio. Only down side a... More

Hi Charlotte, Thanks for the lovely review, I'm sorry to hear that the pipe burst had let us down on this occasion, but as you say it's out of our control as it wasn't on our premises. Hope you come back again very soon! Kind Regards, Andy Bradford More

Visited one sunday lunchtime for a drink and a snack. Nice location, very pleasant atmosphere.. it became very busy around 1:30 - 2pm. A good choice for non-coeliacs. Sadly not so for a coeliac. When I mentioned I was a coeliac, I was told that they werent allowed to recommend any GF dishes and I was given a few sheets... More

Hello there, I'm glad that apart from the lack of coeliac options you enjoyed your experience with us, however I do agree that a separate menu needs to be put in place for people such as yourself. I have put forward your feedback to our head office and I really hope to see some positive changes in the future! Many... More

We went to the Slug and Lettuce for something to eat after a trip to the cinema. Always enjoy it here with good food and nice service. My daughter Daisy Day ordered lasagne which didn't look great as it was swimming in oil. She couldn't eat it and said it tasted much like it looked - pretty awful. My meal... More
