Time Out Says

3 out of 5 stars

Behind the wide front terrace, the layout of this ages-old, well-run Young’s pub may be a little confusing at first, but the Leather Bottle is worthy of exploration.

Spaces include the Board Room, accessed from a short staircase either end behind the main bar; a more intimate room mainly given over to diners (basic pub food such as fish ’n’ chips, burgers); and a substantial beer garden, a boon in summer.

In colder months, the large old fire in the main bar comes into its own, as locals exchange chit-chat for old-school board games. The decoration isn’t anything remarkable, but it’s worth eyeing up the vintage memorabilia dotting the bare-brick walls, such as the photograph of the pub in its circa-1890 prime.
