No real ale - occupied mainly by diners. Standard keg offerings.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Slug & Lettuce

A long, long time ago - at the start of it's days as a Hogshead - this place was actually not a bad option for some real ale. However, things went downhill pretty quickly as it became a rather unpleasant tourist / sports pub. Matters improved briefly (apart from the prices) when it was refurbished and re-named the Crooked Surgeon, but it quickly reverted to type. Now, as a Slug & Lettuce, it does at least have the benefit of just being deeply dull. Most of the ground floor is now a 'L'-shaped restaurant area, but there are still a few stools / tables and a large screen in the bar area. There used to be a second bar upstairs, but it looks like this is now just an overflow dining area. Currently has two handpumps, featuring Pride (£3.45) and Greene King IPA (off). PS - It is housed in quite an interesting building when viewed from Leicester Street.
