Food is great and a pint is great outside. Can take some time to get seated and fed but who's in a rush. This is a gastro place and isn't the old Leathern bottle which used to be a great real ale house. Family type food is good. Shame the old rustic side of leathern has gone for the old... More

Needed a Sunday roast and couldn't think of anywhere else better to visit. Wasn't sure if it was going to be too busy without booking but luckily we were seated pretty quickly. Our drinks and orders were taken quickly (all meats were available) but I noticed that our meals came out after several other tables seated after us received theirs.... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday and it wasn't too busy. I had advised in advance we would have a baby and pram with us, and so we were allocated a table with plenty of space for this, which was appreciated. Service was extremely friendly, and food was good.

I'll try and keep it short. The Ribeye was mostly sinew - really bad cut of meat at a premium price. The crumble did crumble, but had to be sent back to be re-microwaved as the centre was still cold. The service was lacking - only managed to order two drinks for the entire meal. Bottom line is the meal... More

Excellent welcome, service and food. Welcomed and shown to our table promptly and offered drinks. Although early spring, the garden looked clean and comfortable

I used to drink in this pub many years ago. It was a good old fashioned place. Now it is a gastropub and a very good one. We went for a birthday lunch and it was a delight. The service was great and the food exceptional from an extensive menu. It really is worthy of high praise.
