Pub SignMan left this review about The Slug & Lettuce

Located on a busy pedestrianised side street, just off Queen Street, this is a Cuban themed bar specialising in rum. A large single room layout with the bar down the left hand side, gave the impression of a restaurant, but looking around, most people were enjoying a few drinks on our early Friday evening visit. The room has an attractive tiled floor and large front windows which allow plenty of light in. It goes without saying that there is all manner of Cuban related stuff on the walls including a massive map of the island and of course the obligatory Che Guevara poster. The seating is quite well arranged with comfy, lounge style options under the front windows, high tables and stools around the bar and mid-section of the room and standard dining tables elsewhere for people to enjoy bites from the Cuban themed tapas style menu. Some live music struck up around the time we were polishing off our drinks, ramping up the Latin American feel of things.
No surprises to find there was no cask ale available, but a fairly extensive keg range included Brahma and a few other rarely seen world lagers. Rum is the main drink of choice here and connoisseurs will be spoilt for choice when picking from an eclectic list from around the world. Like the heathens we are, we bought shots of Sailor Jerry, necked them and left.
Not really my sort of bar, but I thought this was quite a pleasant bar and not a bad concept. The place seems a lot classier than many of the other city centre bars and would no doubt make a good venue for a night out with a larger group.
