Description
The Slug and Lettuce is just right for combining with any event that's going on - located as we are at the top of Leith Walk in the Omni Leisure development centre, right next door to the Playhouse Theatre. At The Slug we pride ourselves on catering for all occasions - a place to relax and take things easy even if it's just for a coffee or you want a pre or post-theatre meal. Or maybe you'd like to meet up for drinks - or enjoy a proper night out on the town? Whatever you're looking for, we aim to exceed your expectations.
