The popular high street brand Slug and Lettuce, which is famous for its cocktails and tasty affordable food, will be taking up residence in Stockton Heath, Cheshire.

Situated on the former Cape site on Victoria Square, the bar will close from Sunday, 23 March and reopen on Friday, 4 April and will have something to offer locals and business guests throughout the day and evening as the venue is transformed with a £100K investment seeing the creation of 15 new jobs.

A spectacular launch weekender party commences on 4 April at 5pm with 2-for-1 cocktails and complimentary canapés and cupcakes. The weekend of entertainment will include the popular Diamond giveaway, where a guest will get the chance to win a diamond worth £500. Guests will also be able to enjoy their five minutes of fame walking down the purple carpet with the paparazzi and the first 100 people entering the new Slug and Lettuce venue will receive a Peroni goody bag and free Bellini.

The Slug and Lettuce will open every day offering breakfasts together with a range of lunch and dinner options which now include a ‘under 500-calorie’ menu, with items such as the Chicken and Pepper skewer (416 calories) and the Aubergine and Tomato Bake (430 calories). These sit alongside the popular platter range and mix of steak, fish, vegetarian and seasonal options.
