I was in York a couple of weeks ago for the night staying with a friend, we stopped off at Slug and Lettuce for a drink and decided to have some food, we enjoyed a sharing board which was plenty for us both and we were extremely stuffed once finished. Friendly staff and always a busy place with a good atmosphere.

My wife and I visited over the Easter weekend and were thoroughly impressed. We've visited loads of Slug & Lettuce all over the country and York Riverside is our favourite by a mile?. There's a great atmosphere and the staff can't do enough to help. Particular thanks to Amy behind the bar, who recommended and made some great cocktails. She was friendly and funny too.

If you're visiting York you should definitely visit Slug & Lettuce Riverside.

Visited the Slug in Leeds only a few days ago and when in York today called in here. Went for there all day everyday 2 for 1 cocktail deal. Zombie was okay but preferred the rum berry Mojito. They had alcohol free cocktails for the drivers which they both enjoyed but these are priced individually FYI. Nice place, easy atmosphere would call again.

Called in here for drinks on Easter Friday, the place was quite busy. Our daughter in tow we enjoyed a couple of drinks on the 2 for 1 cocktails.

Service at the bar was a little slow, they seemed to focus on the drinkers more than people wanting to eat.

Felt a safe bar although busy and having a child with us it seemed to cater for everyone, would of ate here if it was a little quieter as staff seemed to be struggling.

Hi Bryan,

I am sorry to see that you have given us a 3 star rating. As i'm sure you are aware, during peak service times our drink service can slow down slightly and I apologise for this. We do endeavour to have enough staff on to cope, however as you can appreciate, Easter weekend does put extra strain upon our bar.
I am glad to see that you took advantage of our great 2 for 1 offer on tasty cocktails and that you felt safe with your family. It is of paramount importance to us to create a family friendly environment at all times in our venue, whether that be a quiet midweek lunchtime or a busy weekend session.
I hope you visit us again and that we can bump your rating up to 5 stars when you enjoy our delicious food alongside great drinks.
Warm Regards,
Olli
