I've visit Slug last week for the first time. Staff was super friendly and cocktails blew me away. Apple pie martini is worth die for 😊

We went here on a busy Saturday night before a concert. It was extremely busy, which meant there was a mix up with the order (a chicken burger was order but beef arrived) however the waitress was very apologetic. The desserts were amazing, would definitely recommend the three small dessert options. The cocktails and atmosphere were also great so overall... More

Booked for 5 of us to go today, what a let down! Worst type of cheap, overpriced frozen rubbish. Nothing healthy, (or tasty) certainly no steaks or... More

It was packed and was only 3 staff on the bar but that didn't stop them, they all worked together the longest I waiting was around 5 minutes which wasn't long... More

Came here with my girlfriend and friends for a few drinks prior to going for a birthday meal. The cocktails are always really good, I'd recommend the cherry cola :) permanent 241 aswell. What's not to like?

Standard chainpub food- fine for what it was but nothing to wow you. Service was a bit slow- it seemed understaffed- but the staff were pleasant.

This particular branch of the slug and lettuce does get very busy so will try and call in at the quieter times. When it is like this, it is a really pleasant experience. It is a really big pub inside but we always try and grab a seat outside. Here you can watch the goings on around you on the... More
