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.

To make the most of a hot sunny day we took a day trip to Manchester. After an hour or so walking around this beautiful city,hunger was beginning to kick in as was the need for a drink. We really wanted to get a seat outside in the sunshine but the only options seemed to be standing room only in... More

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

Decided to pop to the Slug and Lettuce with 3 friends and family members for a bite to eat! Was pleasantly surprised to find out its 50% discount night! Then the problems started, thought 50% discount meant the price but soon discovered it actually meant the menu. It got to the point where it was easier for the poor waitress... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Regrettably you caught us on a bad day which are very few and far between. Following an exceptionally busy weekend and a delay in our main delivery getting to us it meant that we were running short on a lot of dishes by the end of lunch service. We're sorry it... More

Great pub in a decent location, bar staff super friendly, reasonably priced cocktails when we went. Always busy, right across from the town hall.

Brilliant for all day 2 for 1 cocktails plus you can sit and people watch all day. It's in a central location so handy for all the shops too.

Thanks for leaving a review. We're so glad you enjoyed. People watching in the surrounds of the Town Hall's Gothic architecture with a cocktail or two is never a bad thing! More
