The Garden Slug’s new operating hours

Hey everyone, we haven’t been blogging a whole lot because Instagram is the new blogging. Just a quick one to let you know we’ve tweaked our operating hours very slightly.

We’re now open for dinner only from Mondays to Thursdays, and all-day dining is available all weekend from Fridays (11am-10pm); and Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays we open 9am-10pm.

And 1-for-1 beers still available every Thursday 6-10pm.

If you’re still “old school” that way and still read blogs like these, we have a new menu to announce very soon, and in a couple months perhaps a new dining concept altogether. Stay awsum Gotham.

This Valentine’s Day… we’re keeping it real. Unpretentious, affordable and very chill.

Real food for real people.

We have three platters to choose from, however our regular menu is also available. Why should we stop you from having your favourite Marmite Pasta or Three Little Pigs, especially on such a special day?? Amirite?!

Are you a Honey Lemon Lime or Honey Orange Lemon Lime (with salt) kind of person?

Honey lemon and lime has always been a bestseller, one of the more popular drinks with its refreshing taste of sweetness and sourness. It’s tasty, the kitchen staff loved it, I loved it; it’s just a good thirst quencher.
