As The Hogshead it was a decent enough friendly boozer but virtually from the minute it was 'transformed' into a Slug and Lettuce (bottles of wine doubling in price overnight etc) it was doomed !! Sadly thats proved to be the case!

Thursday evening (August 9th) was my first ever visit to a Slug and Lettuce, let alone this particular member of the branch. I had mixed expectation prior to the visit and this certainly wasnt reassured when upon entering, I was almost immediately pounced on by one of the (seemingly over eager, but really just in it for potential tips) bar staff. Whats wrong with queuing at the bar only? I like to know when I want a pint and not to be informed suggestively thats its time I need one. Okay, enough of the rant. The interior was actually to my liking. I liked the modernised feel and thought it was all rather comfortable. The beer selection was quite good; though watch out for the measurements. The music was a MOR, safe as houses affair and I suppose, familiarity and inoffensiveness is what you might crave after a hard day slugging away in the office. The toilets are a bit of a trek if near the entrance, but aside from these quibbles, I didnt find it to be too bad in here. I doubt id visit on a Friday (or in truth, any day anytime soon), but this Slug and Lettuce isnt a place Id deter people from going to. Its not overly intrusive and is there if required. A 6/10 from me.

visited about a week ago around 6pm , it is now a slug n lettuce , bit of a makeover which is normal of the slug chain , bar staff are the usual eastern europeans , beer wasnt upto much and pricey
not a spot on the hogs , still times change

visited yesterday evening , and a sign on the door states that "this pub closes on the 9th of febuary and will re open in march as a slug and lettuce" the fridges were all empty but the beer out the pump was ok , shame about this pub closing , but who knows what the slug chain will do with it
RIP hogshead
