The Slug and Lettuce




The Slug and Lettuce is part of a huge chain across the country, but mostly parts of London and the South East of England. It is located on the High Street meaning it is very accessible, and also very close to the taxi ranks and bus stops down the road. This means it facilitates to both students living off campus as well as those living on campus. From an extensive menu, The Slug and Lettuce serves food and drinks starting from coffee in the mornings, lunches, evening meals, and stays open until late for drinks and partying. It is also available for private hire and accommodates functions very well in its spacious function rooms. 

The menu’s are extensive and do not disappoint! The food served is delicious and the staff are friendly and cater to your needs very well. The normal menu’s are great, however, they offer promotional offers too. For example, Bollywood cocktails and platters, ‘Wednesday Wine Down’ where all bottles of wine are £11.45 on Wednesdays, ‘Happy Mondays’ offer 50% off food on Mondays, 2-4-1 curries on ‘Tikka Tuesdays’, 2-4-1 desserts all day every day , 2-4-1 cocktails and kids meals for a £1 on Sundays. Along with this, The Slug and Lettuce also has an outside and smoking area, disabled access, baby changing, WiFi, plasma TV screens, is cask marque accredited, and serves real ale.

They provide food and drink menus on their website if you want to have a look beforehand. The drinks are generally standard prices, however some of the cocktails can be a bit pricier than cocktails served in other bars across Colchester. However, this being said, they do have a large variety of cocktails which many are included in their promotions which makes it a lot cheaper if you are venturing there with a group or even few friends. The inside of the bar is modern and stylish which makes for great photos for all your memories (or lack of, with the cocktail promotions). With the great atmosphere, stylish décor, delicious food and drink, great offers and promotions; I would definitely recommend The Slug and Lettuce for a good night out with friends.
