We asked the price of 3 different drinks and on the 3rd enquiry the bar staff said he wasn't telling us as we'd already asked. Even though they were different drinks and therefore different prices. We were confused and said it was his job to tell us and he snapped back saying it was our job to listen. He then... More

Been in her a few times but never by my own choice. There's nothing wrong with the bar but there's nothing that makes it stand out either. The entrance is nice how you go down little winding staircase but the bar is average, dance floor area few seats and prices a little steep for Durham considering you have a lloyds... More

Was going to get passport renewed so ideal place to get a bite to eat, my wife said she had been to the slug and lettuce in Windsor so why not. Ordered a pint of lager shandy a Coke, a 5 hour cooked pie and chips and a superfood salad with chicken skewers. I'll agree with the 5 hour cooked... More

Had a great time at the slug and lettuce recently. 2 for 1 cocktails were great value and went down a treat. The staff were energetic and good fun chatting away to us. The music was great aswell and the break out area was perfect to catch a breather. Would go back again.

Love the slug and lettuce chain of pubs. Great choice of food and cocktails and great place for a night out. However Durham has gone rapidly downhill. Arrived 7pm on Sat and bar had steady amount of customers. However tables sticky and floors my god my feet were sticking like mad however this didn't spoilt my night. But The thing... More

Itching wrong with it, young lady had the correct... More

Wednesday evening sitting out on the lower terrace, in the sun. Very pleasant. I would recommend the tostadas. Bit of a mix up with the bill, but this was rectified immediately with apologies. 2-4-1 cocktails are very good value for money, the amaretto sour is particularly nice. All of this followed by 2-4-1 desserts, both of which the salted caramel... More

Waited nearly and hour for our mains but gave the starter... More

Admittedly we came here for two reasons: the name of the place and we disparately needed a drink. It was mid afternoon and the place was very quiet. It is two floors and opens inside to a very large venue. We came in from the top and went down the stairs to the bar area. I wanted a non hoppy... More
