POPULAR Portsmouth nightspot Slug & Lettuce has undergone a £420,000 refurbishment and reopened with the addition of 25 new staff members.

The Slug and Lettuce, in Gunwharf Quays, has revamped its menu with inspiration taken from around the globe, including salads, seafood and deli burgers.

It has also installed cocktail stations so people can be served quicker.

It has refurbished its terrace, which overlooks the harbour, and put in updated décor and stylish new furniture.

Michael O’Mahony, general manager, said: ‘We are so excited to show the local community the new-look site ahead of the busy summer period, as the full refurbishment has made a positive difference to both our staff and customers.

‘Plus, with one of the best views of the harbour our sunny terrace is now looking better than ever, and is ideal for a weekend brunch or enjoying the afternoon sun with friends or colleagues.’

The venue reopened on Friday. A VIP event tonight will see the new-look bar unveiled in style.

Slug and Lettuce, which also has a Southsea bar, is owned by Stonegate Pub Company – the largest privately-held managed pub operator in the UK, with revenues in excess of £625m, employing 14,000 people.
