This bar is now called Label, the Slug and Lettuce has moved, as someone else has already mentioned.

I have been here twice recently in groups of 5-10 for food, once at a lunchtime and then last night. The menu looks good, but on both occasions people have been served the wrong food - either because what they were sending out purposely bore little relation to what was on the menu or they were unable to do things like hold cheese off something after agreeing to do so - for someone with a dairy allergy.

For example, last night I ordered a chicken burger which was supposed to come plain, as per the menu, with fries and coleslaw on the side. It turned up with bacon on it - which I do not eat - and nothing else. I explained this, including not wanting the unexpected bacon and a good ten minutes later the plate came back - the burger still with bacon on and with some overdone fries and still no coleslaw.

I will therefore do my best not to eat here again as I have serious misgivings about their food preparation standards.

On the drinks front - the prices seemed to go up between early evening and Friday night proper and I no saw no explanation of this anywhere. Some of the bar staff were reasonably helpful even if they didn't have much of a clue about what was going on, although at some point several of them seemed more interested in drinking shots behind the bar than serving punters. I have also rarely seen a bar that could make draught cider fob so well, so perhaps their cellar hygiene could do with looking at too.

Overall, this place could be so much better with some attention to detail. As it is, at the moment I wouldn't bother. Try O'Neills opposite instead.

I do not beleive it they have finally got it sussed, a bar in bournemouth that is not stuck up its bottom, and the staf know what they are doing, and do it on time. the food is good and the atmosphere is relaxed, and fun, it is a shame that it is not rammed every night of the week and not just at the weekend.
