The food we ordered an all occasions was good and the staff with one exception friendly and efficient. However the downside is the loud screechy pop music we had to endure on all our lunchtime visits, it appears they... More

Went here with my dad today for lunch. He loves it here and so do I. Walked straight in and got a nice spacious booth up the back. Went up to the bar to order and spoke to a lovely girl called Megan who took my order and opened a tab for us. Took two minutes to get the drinks... More

During out recent visit to Southampton we went to Slug and Lettuce one evening for food and drink. The place has a somewhat modern decor and we thought it a bit pricey. We had flatbread which was ordinary. The place lacks a certain something, though both the staff and service were good.

I came here with my family, we ordered our mains which came out quickly all hot, with the sides we had ordered, we were really impressed with he quality of food and will defiantly be back! Perhaps without the kids so we can try the cocktail menu!

We have always liked the Slug and Lettuce quality of food. We had the Seafood grill and the Rib-eye Steak which were both excellent and 50 percent off on Mondays
