We decided to try The Leather Bottle for lunch after hearing locally that food was being served after a major refurbishment.

We were told the Menu changes on a daily basis hence the choice of starter and main courses being somewhat limited. The website is currently being built so it is hard to get an idea of menus before visiting unlike other establishments in the area.

The general decor, cloakrooms and main bar are all very smart and clean. Limited parking, however there is parking on the main road and side streets which is not ideal.

Might leave it for a few months before visiting again whilst they sort out their menus etc.

Definitely worth visiting if you just fancy a drink as they have an extensive choice of beers and ales.

Thank you for your review Yvonne. I do apologise for our short comings. The only excuse I can make is that we have only been open as a restaurant for 6 weeks and we are still making changes on a daily basis to strive to please all of our customers. I am afraid there is nothing we can do about the parking situation. Our new website is under construction as you mentioned. Please give us another try in the foreseeable future to see the improvements made.

We went here for my birthday last night (group of 4) and it was brilliant. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, good range of wine and larger. However I would like to thank the staff particularly as we couldn’t get a cab back home - after trying to help us one of the waiting staff drove us home in her own car. Such kindness.

The ambience was excellent - would really recommend and we will be returning.

Had a fabulous lunch,as it was Sunday we opted for the roast all had different meats,lamb,beef and a fab chicken all cooked to perfection with all the trimmings. Don’t miss the Creme Brûlée best ever.
Considering it was Mother’s Day and the place was full the service was impeccable.
Atmosphere was great,very relaxing mums made to feel special and children made very welcome. Will definitely be back, must try the Fish Pie.
Thanks to our lovely waiter who made us very welcome,nothing was too much trouble.
