The Slug & Lettuce (Lisle Street) | British Pub
Starting as a small North London pub in 1984, The Slug and Lettuce is now a boozy superbrand with more than 70 locations all across the UK.
Their Chinatown outpost sits just off Leicester Square on Lisle Street and is a smart, elegantly-finished, two-storey watering hole, with a nicely curated menu of wines, beers and tasty cocktails.
Expect sugary-sweet classics, like Long Island Iced Tea or Cosmopolitan, interspersed with house specials such as caffeine-infused Flat White Martini and a feisty Root 56 with a Jägermeister kick.
Their menu has an international outlook featuring everything from Lebanese-Style Chicken, or a gigantic Asian Platter, to Salmon Supreme on Thai-Style Noodles.
The Slug and Lettuce Leicester Square boasts 3 giant projector screens onto which major sports games are displayed so it’s a good spot for footie fans.
And, for bargain hunters, pop in on a Monday for dinner and take advantage of 50% off all dishes, or from Tuesday to Thursday cocktails are 2-for-1.
It’d almost be rude not to.
