Had a New Year's eve dinner here and it had a Masquerade theme so most of the guests were partly concealed. It had a very lively athmosphere and was very well organised. The food was a mixed review. My main of monkfish was really good but the people who choose beef wellington were dissapointed as the beef was overcooked and the filling was not very tasty. The drinks were overpriced but it was New Years eve so thats to be expected. The fireworks in the rear car park got going at midnight and we all had a great evening.
Apart from the garden the leather bottle fails at everything else. Soul less & unwelcoming. I am not a big fan.
But in the Summer it has the best Beer Garden for miles, if you can get served.
I'm not a big fan of the Leather Bottle. The pub is a little soulless and I don't feel there's anything characterful about this place at all.
I suppose it serves a purpose in so far as that it houses many locals on a Friday and Saturday night but I don't ever feel there are many different types of clientele apart from just that - locals...
With places like Bar 366 and The Jolly Gardners all on Garratt Lane, this place has a lot to live up to and it just doesn't deliver.
Had the London Lager here, which is alright as all the other beer
options were things I've had time and time again. Garden out front by main road and a massive one out back. A bit
I went attracted by their recent beer festival, having seen an ad for it. Unfortunately, the beer festival seemed to be little more than their usual Wells & Young beers, plus 3 other choices, which weren't especially imaginative (Tim Taylor Landlord, and Jennings Cumberland, for example). The other major downside was that come 1pm the room I was in became baby buggy central, which isn't ideal if you're trying to have a nice quiet drink. That said, the food was good, the beers were in reasonable condition, and if you're in the area, it's a perfectly OK pub. not one to make a detour to visit though.
Full review after visiting their re-vamped garden space. They are decent enough to serve a good ale or lager and the food is not bad.
Great, friendly pub. Worth visiting on a sunny day. Food has room for improvement but some of it really isn't bad.
The most beautiful pub garden I've seen in a while. Great atmosphere.
This is my local and i go often... but theyre not good. Food is massively overated and absurdly overpriced. The staff are always nagging you to leave at 1059 and gemerally a disappointing corporate approach to a pub. Best things are its round the corner and has the best garden i know round here. Few places beat it on a sunny Saturday.
