user reviews of the Slug and Lettuce, Chichester

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Agree with post below - food was ok and they did have two ales on Adnams Bitter and Bombadier (kind of tokenism really I cannot believe that the Slug chain has any real desire to further its ale offerings). The Adnams was in good form and I can't complain. There was also a massive selection of spirits which looked impressive. Brake Brothers made a delivery while we were there... and ground black pepper was unavailable. Staff were polite and attentive and no doubt underpaid.

Great place for midday lunch and menu is extensive and good value and portions very good. Staff very polite, efficient and attentive. Can get very busy lunchtimes so large groups would be safer making booking. I believe in the evenings it becomes a "town centre style pub so probabaly noisy and busy.

good pub if you out on a friday/sataday night but you need some pennys to spend, thay have a garden witch is nice but it is so small max of 20 people could get out there, day time the pub is dead not a lot of people at all and the food isnt that good, overall it is a good pub but only on a night out, if i had the chance i would go to trents acoss the road

I know it doesn't exactly fit Beer in the Evening but they also do delicious breakfasts here, give it a try!!...

We three 'old biddies' went to the pub to use the Telegraph offer and we haven't enjoyed a meal so much for ages. The staff were exceptional and the menu very varied. We will definately be going there again when we visit Chichester.
Thanks again.

We came here on a Saturday night for the first time (Oct 14) just before 9. The place was quite packed, though I was still served at the bar fairly quickly. From what I remember, 3 bottles of Corona and a Magners came to £12.70, so make what you want from that about drink prices.

The décor, however, was nondescript, while the background music was lyric-less funky house, which I struggled to appreciate this stage of the night. There was a relaxed and jovial atmosphere in here, but I found this place too cramped given the host of tables and chairs taking up room to go along with how busy it was. Apparently, it usually becomes 1 in, 1 out later on in the night. I thought the Slug and Lettuce in Bromley was small! There was also a private function towards the back of the place near the toilets, so even less room in the main area. No dance floor area, so if you fancied a little boogie, tough.

I was happy to swiftly move on after 1 round of drinks and am unlikely to drink here again when next in Chichester on a Saturday night. Searching for H-Files? Not when you can barley move around. On to Lloyds then!

don't know why every one complains so much about this pub. the staff are friendly and the beer is kept well. It is a little pretentious, but if you don't like that then bugger off to somewhere like the nags. The main bonus about this place is it's only a short crawl to the vestry- probably the best pub in chi. brilliant at the weekend the live music is class and the staff are amazing.

The friendly staff and decent enoguh food don't quite hide the fact that this place is just a little too pretentious for it's own good. A DJ over the brazil game?

My best advice would be to check whether your t-shirt cost £30 or more and was from a small independent fasion label. If the answer's yes, stay and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. If no then go next door to the Fountain and enjoy a quality pint in relaxed surroundings
