Review is a little overdue. I had my big wedding abroad but wanted to hold a small, informal get together with my family and friends after my civil ceremony in Twickenham. Slug and Lettuce was the obvious choice because of the reasonably priced food, drinks and the gorgeous location by the river. The decor is also really nice, so minimum... More

We were really well looked after by Cleo for our Christmas lunch. Food was not bad for a Christmas meal though the turkey was quite salty.

We had lunch there on a Sunday, opting for the small plate of tacos with grilled vege tables and halloumi and the ramen vegetable and tofu soup. We had to wait 45mn, the waiter seemed surprised that it was so busy, on a sunny Sunday close to Christmas, by the river, nothing surprising about this. When the dishes eventually came,... More

Myself and a couple of friends arrived to sit outside in the delightful December sunshine today. We ordered food at 1.30 only to be told we had a 45 minute wait. I asked one of the waiters if he could fast track our food because my friend had to catch a train back to Manchester in an hour. Without consulting... More

I have been several times over the years but only if the other pubs are too busy. I have never eaten but I find getting a beer in the weekday evening can be a mission. My friend was served without a problem as the bar had staff. I went up to get another round. The one guy was serving 3... More

Hi Martin I am sorry to hear that your recent visit didn't live up to your expectations. Unfortunately, as our main selling point is our 'two for one' cocktails, sometimes you do have to wait as you can imagine as cocktails are a time consuming drink to make. I am sorry you felt you were ignored by one of my... More

Met up in this pub next to the Thames. Usual layout for this place. Staff helpful and efficient. Meals ordered were served up quickly and tasted great. Atmosphere was friendly and people of all ages frequented the pub.
