"We're still here, still good value for money and the food's better than it used to be, " says Danial Palmer-Johnson, the new manager of The Slug & Lettuce, Tonbridge which has joined forces with Eat Around Tonbridge for this exciting competition to launch their new menu.  I visited recently on a Saturday night and left feeling surprised & impressed....

If you think you know The Slug & Lettuce, then think again.  It attracts ladies who lunch, professionals on their way home from the station and families too thanks to it's 'Kids eat for £1' offer on Sundays.  Danial, an experienced Slug & Lettuce manager having worked all over the country in the bar chain, has honed in on the community spirit in the town and the Slug & Lettuce is now sponsoring the Tonbridge Juddians Ladies' team.  He's keen to stock local suppliers too.

Myself & three friends visited The Slug & Lettuce one Saturday night - none of us had been for ages (years). 

It was really busy & buzzing at the bar, tunes playing, but it didn't take us long to be served or be shown to our table, despite the FA Cup Final being shown and a hen do enjoying a cocktail masterclass. 

The menu is large & varied, covering all bases with specific menus for meals such as salads, burgers, sandwiches & light bites. 

Large menus often concern me (you know, quality vs quantity) but I needn't have worried. We ordered a broad selection of dishes from the main menu (fish cakes with sweet potato fries, a super salad, chicken skewers & Khichdi, an Indian inspired rice dish which was sweet & tangy) and were impressed: our food was very tasty and full of flavour, all delivered by our attentive server.

We had a really good night and it's somewhere to which we all said we'd return - the (sometimes loud) music, hen do & general hustle and bustle of the place on a Saturday night, only added to our enjoyment.
