Slug & Lettuce opens in Blackpool following £400,000 refurbishment

Slug & Lettuce is to open in Blackpool this weekend following a £400,000 investment.

Located on Queen Street, just off the promenade, the venue will offer food, drinks and VIP cocktail masterclasses.

The project is backed by Stonegate Pub Company, a privately held managed pub operator with revenues in excess of £700m and employing more than 13,500 people.

Throughout the UK, the company has 724 pubs, split into two divisions: branded pubs and venues, comprising: Slug & Lettuce, Walkabout, Be At One and Popworld; and pubs and bars comprising: Proper Pubs, Town Pub and Kitchen, Classic Inns and Common Room.

Jules McNiven, general manager at Slug & Lettuce Blackpool, said: “We are thrilled to be opening Slug & Lettuce in Blackpool.

"We’ve worked hard to ensure we’ll be the go-to destination for all occasions – from grabbing a bite to eat midweek to big nights out and celebrations. We are here to make any celebration absolutely fabulous!”

The venue will officially open with a drinks reception on March 17.
