Over charged. Reheated chips that were warm not hot no bacon for chicken and bacon ciabatta. Coffee came with stale pop corn. Waste of good money on badly cooked food. Shame on slug and lettuce for having a premises thats serves such bad food..

Experience so bad I don't think there are enough characters to go into detail. Food disgusting and missing lots of items from menu. Fruit flies infesting the bar area. When discussed with management how terrible it was and how unhappy we were, we were reimbursed 20% of our food bill - considering we hardly ate any of the food this... More

I recently went to this Slug and Lettuce for a drink with a friend. The glasses were dirty and there were flies all over the wall.. I'm just thankful we didn't eat there and I definitely won't be returning. It's such a shame because the décor is beautiful, but it is dirty. Staff were nice at least!

Just popped in on Sunday for a quick brunch and drink. Gorgeous day and good service, first time I've been since the redecoration which is eclectic, some bits work well and others well put simply dall short. Anyway to the food i had eggs benedict and the sauce was a tad congealed although tasty but the eggs were hard boiled!!... More
