The award-winning Stonegate Pub Company has opened a brand new Slug and Lettuce at Tower Bridge in St Katharine Dock following an investment of £370,000, resulting in the creation of ten new jobs.

The Slug and Lettuce at Tower Bridge will offer customers an enhanced, premium food and drink menu reflecting the bar’s elegant surroundings. A special champagne corner and VIP booths, which can be pre-booked for parties and celebrations, are just some of the special elements introduced to the bar.

Additional dishes have been added to the hugely popular ‘Under 500 Calories Section’ including the Grilled Asparagus and King Prawn Salad along with dishes such as Grilled Salmon and heritage potatoes and Roast Loin of Cod served with a vermouth and chive sauce. The wine list also boasts an enhanced selection of new wines including Sancerre; Albarino; Malbec and Carignan. Another first for the Slug and Lettuce is the listing of an organic lager by the award-winning English brewery, Freedom.

General manager, Stephen McMahon who heads up the team at the Slug and Lettuce said: “What more could you ask for than the wonderful, awe-inspiring backdrop of Tower Bridge and the beautiful marina – I think it’s the best looking Slug and Lettuce within the estate but of course, I am biased!

“The bar looks amazing with its luxe décor and with Christmas just around the corner, we’re confident that it will be a great place to celebrate Christmas and beyond in a stylish setting. As part of our great Christmas packages we are giving our customers the chance to take part in their very own cocktail master class where they can make and taste some of our best selling drinks. There’s always a great atmosphere when people take part in the master classes and come highly recommended as an informative but fun way to start off the evening – it’s a fantastic party starter!

“The level of interest from customers popping into the site whilst the team have been training has been phenomenal and we are really looking forward to welcoming customers to the Slug and Lettuce.

“Slug and Lettuce will deliver great food and drink, a relaxed environment and fantastic customer service, all under one roof. From tourists and office workers to people who live in the area, the Slug and Lettuce offers something for everyone, whether its one of our great cocktails, some of our delicious food or a nice glass of wine after the working day or week. Slug and Lettuce will open from 10am every day and has a 1.30am licence on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.”

The opening of the Slug and Lettuce at Tower Bridge comes just two months after the national bar group celebrated the opening of its largest and most ambitious bar to date, the Slug and Lettuce in the O2 arena.
