Blackthorn _ left this review about The Slug & Lettuce

This pub follows the usual rather bland, corporate style and limited range of beers that one would expect from this chain, although in this case it does have a redeeming feature in that it has a reasonable size beer terrace/patio at the rear which is quite a sun trap and venues with outside seating are in limited supply in the local area. There are also a few more tables and chairs on the wide pavement at the front.

Inside it’s all very generic and feels more like you’re in a large hotel chain rather than a pub, particularly a couple of the smaller rooms to the left. Flooring is mostly strip wood, although with carpeting in some areas and tiling around the bar. The backdrop behind the bar is all mirrored tiles and elsewhere are a number of heavy gilt mirrors with purple back lighting. Paintwork is predominantly grey and I noticed a glitter ball towards the rear hinting that it may get somewhat livelier and nosier later on in the evenings. The room at the back has some windows in the ceiling and this together with the large doors leading out on to the patio give a light and airy feel.

Food wise the menu was extensive and divided in to several sections such as mains, burgers, curries, salads, pasta and even an “under 500 calories” section. Most of the mains were in the £8 - £11 range, although many more were available at £6.45. We didn’t eat however, so can’t comment on the quality. Service at the bar was slow and haphazard, even though they weren’t particularly busy. Several staff seemed to be milling around without really achieving much. In contrast though was the pleasant and helpful young lady serving in the garden who even offered to go and find us a table from a store room since they were all in use and we had only managed to get a couple of odd chairs.

Beers on tap were Doom Bar and Dartmoor Jail Ale. Ciders were somewhat uninspiring with just Strongbow and Magner’s Golden Draught.
