The Slug and Lettuce on Weybridge’s high street will close after trading on Saturday 7th July as the team prepare to make way for a refurbishment that will see the bar revitalised.

The bar will reopen to the public at 10am on Friday 13th July and has prepared a weekend of celebrations starting with a local business preview party from 5-8pm where guests will be treated to complimentary samples of Cobra beer and Jacob’s Creek Wine Cooler. Guests will also be able to learn a few hints and tips on how to make the best tasting Mojito with the Slug Cocktail School.

From 8pm, the bar hosts its VIP launch party where customers will be welcomed to the new-look bar with stilt walkers and fire-eaters. Inside, the bar’s resident DJ will be providing the soundtrack to the evening. Complimentary canapés and a glass of cava for the first 100 VIP guests will also be available.

Saturday sees the Slug and Lettuce invite people to come take a look at the changes made to the bar and post their feedback on the bar’s Facebook wall. The first 100 people to post a comment will be treated to a WKD by the Slug and Lettuce team, so if you’re not already a member, make sure you log-in and join the Slug and Lettuce group:

The refurbishment will include a new colour scheme of plum, green and gold which will adorn the walls of Slug and Lettuce along with new furniture in all kinds of fabrics and textures. A completely new lighting scheme, new signage reflecting a more up-to-date image of Slug and Lettuce and a new back bar will give the bar a more modern and contemporary feel.

The team at Slug and Lettuce pull out all the stops on Sunday as they host a family fun day complete with face-painting and children can eat for just £1 when dining with a parent.

Kris Makowski, manager of Slug and Lettuce in Weybridge said: “It’s been seven years since our last refurbishment so as you can imagine, the team and I are delighted to be one of the bars to showcase the new template for Slug and Lettuce. We’ll continue to offer some of the best customer service in town with quality food and drink offer at great value for money prices but in surroundings that are more suited to our customers and the people of Weybridge.

Slug and Lettuce really is the perfect place to be whether you want a place to enjoy a bite to eat with family on the weekend, a stylish venue to have a drink after work with colleagues or friends or somewhere to celebrate the weekend.”
