This place is now The Slug & Lettuce. Pity really as we enjoyed the food - However the food being served at The Slug & Lettuce looked nice. 3 different Real Ales also available. I hope you find this information useful !

Sunday roast dinner was great value & service was really very good, always seemed to walk pass but so glad we didn't this time. It is a very large restaurant so there are plenty of tables will be back soon.

Went here for the first time last night, the bar staff were really friendly and great for a bit of banter! They also serve great shots! The DJ played excellent music and the atmosphere was fab. Great place to hang out with friends!

The servers were fantastic, but I found the managers were always telling them off for things, especially the female manager who talked down to them. Even if service was slow I could clearly see they were understaffed and making the lower workers more stressed. Poor...More

A modern, purpose built bar on the edge of Millennium Square, this is one of those establishment that has a relaxed and chilled out vibe during the day and then morphs in to more of a late night party venue, open until 1:00am on the...More

At The Living Room our focus remains on sourcing the best quality ingredients, preparing them simply and delivering bags of flavour and texture on the plate. This is good, honest, robust and stylish food with its origins firmly in the European tradition with international touches. There is nothing frilly or fancy. A selection of Home Comforts - bangers and mash, fish and chips – are designed for easy eating yet there are also more elaborate dishes like 'Line caught yellow-fin tuna, seared and peppered with lemon aioli and baby herb salad'. Small plates - such as wok fried edamame beans or Italian olives – allow for casual snacking while sandwiches and salads enable one-course, easy and casual dining. All-day opening is designed to facilitate easy access and reinforces a core ethos behind The Living Room; you, the customer, is the one empowered to make decisions and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to do that, enjoy it and be comfortable.
