We had a little difficulty in finding this restaurant even with a sat nav, however when we finally arrived we awaited our table in anticipation of a fine dining experience. What a disappointment, a steak had to be sent back for further cooking as it was very rare instead of medium as ordered. When they brought it back after only a couple of minutes it was still inedible so it was a complete waste. The manager was apologetic and did not charge for the steak, the rest of the meal was good. The service and ambience was good, however like a previous reviewer observed, the carpets were extremely soiled and also the ladies toilets were not in use.

I would like to return to this restaurant if only to enjoy the setting on the Thames.

Really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. We chose it for a special occasion and weren't disappointed. The service was superb, the young waiters were very attentive without being OTT and the food was excellent. We also got a complimentary glass of bubbly each. I can only imagine that it is even nicer in the summer as the setting on the bank of the Thames is superb.

We went here for an anniversary lunch. On learning that it was our anniversary we were presented with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Nice touch. We went for the set menu. It was fantastic, each dish a work of art. We sat right by the river on a beautiful late summer's Sunday. The bill for 1 x 3 course, 1 x 2 course, 3 x coffee/tea, 1 x glass wine came to under £80.00. Not an everyday amount, but it was not an everyday meal, more a fine dining experience. Can't recommend the restaurant highly enough. A little out of the way, and not cheap, but so worth the journey.

Another successful trip for lunch at The Leathern Bottel! We have not been since July but decided to go again one Saturday as there was no football! As usual the food was superb and the staff were very attentive. The sun actually came out so just sitting looking out on the river was wonderful!
