Oh what a night at the new Slug & Lettuce in The Hub

Celebrate:MK editor Jon Boyle took along some friends for dinner and drinks at the VIP launch of Milton Keynes’ hottest new venue.

The regeneration of The Hub in Milton Keynes is gathering pace after the opening of the stylish new Slug & Lettuce.

Having been a regular visitor to the venue in its previous life as Missoula – and indeed a resident DJ there a few years back – it was going to take something really special to wow me on the VIP launch night.

But Stonegate’s refurbishment of the venue has been nothing short of spectacular. The Instagrammable nature of the decor hit me straight away, with lots of artificial pink flowers, greenery and pastel colours.

The bar has been moved to the right hand wall, which should prevent the bottlenecks of yesteryear on busy nights. There’s a new bar upstairs too.

I was joined on my table by Vicki McCarthy, John Connolly, Leigh Strathearn, Ray Pantling and my sister Rebekah Boyle, and we were impressed with the quality of the food, beers and cocktails. I’d like to give a special mention to Seb for his warm greeting, Bob for the lovely drinks and Pippa for her enthusiastic service. We had a wonderful evening.

The new Slug & Lettuce is located at Manhattan House, 401 Witan Gate, Milton Keynes, MK9 2BQ. Call to book on 01908 827299.
