“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Saturday evening and the place was really humming. Despite this the friendly, prompt and attentive service by Sam was really excellent and helped make the evening.
Starters were Blackstick's souffle and Tempura Sea Bass both well presented and delicious. Mains were braised lamb shoulder and corn fed chicken breast. The lamb was really tender and fell off the bone but the chicken was a little dry and more leg than breast.
Coffee was plentiful, refills at no additional charge; asked for chocolates but none available so Sam served us with some shortbread FOC.

“Excellent meal, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Met friends here for lunch today. Food was of a good standard, service was good and the price was fair. Cost was £120 for 4 with tip, but with no wine.

“Very lovely New Year's Day meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We went to The Leather Bottle having booked a table for New Year's Day. On arrival it materialised that our booking had been written in on the wrong day. The staff were very apologetic and were very quick to find us a table. The food was excellent. I haven't eaten here for a while, having previously been a frequent visitor and on every occasion have been impressed. We all enjoyed our meals courses - special mention to the braised beef and mustard mash - simply divine. No-one in the group could resist the dessert menu. The hot waffle with caramelised banana, steamed blackberry and stem ginger sponge and sticky toffee pudding were delicious. A thoroughly enjoyable start to 2014.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

We had Sunday lunch and the food was excellent. Two of us had roast pork/beef and the third person had the pumpkin masala. All the meals were delicious and piping hot. The puddings were equally as good. The staff were friendly and helpful and the service very good considering they were very busy. Luckily, we had booked a table - a must. We will definitely be paying them another visit.
