Description

An Earlsfield favourite; The Leather Bottle has been halfway down Garrett Lane for over three centuries.

Whilst they've seen a few changes over the years, including the addition of the beautiful restaurant, excellent food, plus a great range of beers, it's the warm, friendly welcome that underpins what they're all about. Tucked away in Garratt Lane is one of South West London premier beer gardens with fantastic Beach Huts that are available to reserve.

They can now host up to 100 guests for your summer celebrations, corporate events and lazy summer lunches, though please remember the British weather is out of their control. They can organise summer parties that include everything from delicious BBQ food and a constant flow of drinks to fantastic entertainment and fun garden party activities such as beach volleyball and table tennis. They have large TV screens in their garden and they will be showing all the key events.

Great pub, great garden, great wine selection. Enjoyed the visit although food came out way too fast. Appreciate large amounts of Sunday Roast needs to be prepped/cooked in advance but always suspicious and feels rushed when food came out 1.5 minutes after it was ordered(!) We had our table booked for 2 hours so there was no need for it to come out instantly. Maybe in future wait slightly longer (even if the food is already ready)! Thanks x visited The Leather Bottle on 16 Jul 2017

The service was good and the food was good, but it was extremely hot, and it seemed t like there was no airlock. It was extremely incofortable which made half our party spend a lot of time outside, even fans would have helped to circulate air! visited The Leather Bottle on 08 Jul 2017

We had emailed with a specific set of requests and given a order of the day. Some of the things we asked for weren't provided or weren't provided on time i.e. It had been agreed that a member of staff would serve the first drink - the drinks weren't ready - wine bottles still had corks in, not enough glasses, no-one serving, no soda water to make spritzers as requested. When I went in to find out for a second time what was going on the female assistant manager was particularly unhelpful and told me there weren't any staff - when you are paying a significant amount of money for a do, you expect some kind of service. They did eventually get someone to serve drinks during the afternoon as previously agreed he would. The buffer meal was ok but there weren't enough plates for a lot of people and small paper trays had to be used. I had asked for the drinks to be brought out depending on demand and to be told when stocks were running low. This didn't happen and a guest ended up buying some bottles of wine as stocks of rose ran low, which I deliberated didn't want to happen. We ended up having to buy a load of undrunk beers because they had been left in water and couldn't be resold. The outside toilets weren't cleaned sufficiently during the day. The garden area wasn't properly cleaned either. I felt that I had made considerable effort to provide a running order and all the requests well in advance of the event but we were let down by poor management. This was for event booking - it does have a nice beer garden and sure it's a perfectly fine place for a burger and glass of wine. visited The Leather Bottle on 02 Jul 2017

The Leather bottle has a fantastic atmosphere & is very family focused. We hired a garden shack for my daughter's Hen do, which was great fun. The only thing that let's it down is the burger 🍔 shack, I've had a normal burger & a fish burger there & both were extremely tasteless with no flavour, I couldn't even taste the tartare sauce that was supposedly in the fish burger. Considering the price, they need to send their burger cooks on a course on how to add flavour via herbs 🌿 & spices, for a better food experience, then I would give them 5 stars. visited The Leather Bottle on 01 Jul 2017

We came down from the South Coast to Meet up with family and celebrate a birthday, I took a chance on this place as it was near all the kids. I was a bit anxious as I didn't know much about the place but I needn't have worried. Nice pub loads of atmosphere, lots of outside space. Food was good and reasonably priced. Staff were very nice nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely go again. visited The Leather Bottle on 24 Jun 2017

Lovely location on a sunny day as lots of outside space. Found my sandwich (cheese, ham and pickle) overpriced and pretty disappointing but my friends BLT looked much better. There was some confusion over our order so another friend didn't get her food till we had finished (no apology or compensation). Also a pint if OJ and lemonade £4.05- outrageous. A shame the service and food didn't live up to its potential, that said we will be giving it another go on Monday as location and garden are great. visited The Leather Bottle on 19 Jun 2017

I booked this on the Tuesday for a relaxed event on Saturday. By Thursday evening no one had called to confirm my booking (and I had had to invite people already), so I phoned you and I was informed of the minimum spend and I said that I would phone back to confirm. Friday I phoned to confirm and was told there would be a 'DEPOSIT' in addition to the minimum spend that I could pay online. In good faith I paid the amount as I now had little option and was assured i would get the money back. So it was a great evening until I found out that the 50 pound Deposit that I was informed about over the phone was in fact a 'booking fee'... The gentleman who helped me settle up at the end said that this happens to a lot of people and that there was nothing that he or the pub can do and that I should complain to fullers. So i will... I will review you and Fullers badly, online and wherever I can and I will avoid fullers pubs (within reason) into the future. So all in all, the fine print on the website, the WRONG advice from your staff over the phone and the accountability of a pub to its 'overlord' of a brewery has left me with a fowl taste in my mouth. Now I will waste the rest of my precious lunch hour complaining, its not my stylebut Im annoyed so deem it worthwhile! Please make everyone who might want to book a garden shack aware of the charge and don't lead them to believe it is a deposit! Feel free to call if anyone wants to know more. visited The Leather Bottle on 13 May 2017

Food was lovely with a good range of dishes. Service was attentive. Only negative was I specifically asked for a highchair and mentioned we'd have the buggy as requested when booking and there was no high chair when we arrived and we had to move chairs etc. A minor thing that didn't spoil the visit. We will visit again. Thank you visited The Leather Bottle on 25 Feb 2017

The Sunday roast was ok but the rations of horseradish were patheticly small. Also, with an traditional English roast, you should serve proper mustard, not American synthetic stuff in a plastic squeezie bottle. The service was friendly and willing but the place was far too noisy for my liking. visited The Leather Bottle on 19 Feb 2017

We both had roast lamb and it was beautifully cooked and served with generous portions. Our only down side was that there was no consideration for gluten free diets. My companion would dearly loved to have had a Yorkshire pudding and his only safe dessert was the ice-cream (delicious but we would have liked an alternative).

Was good, but there has to be a better way to show that you've spent the minimum amount required for the hire of a room. Collecting receipts in a pint glass the whole afternoon does detract from the fun of one's bday party somewhat! And it wasn't an option for me to pay up front and then invoice all my friends afterwards - who knows what they had over a 5 hour window! Surely you could set up a tab , but just take payment each time someone orders something, with the amount registered to the tab automatically??? visited The Leather Bottle on 03 Dec 2016

The food was so-so. Had the veggie fondue for 2-broccoli (nice), bread (not-a-lot for 2),a mint crush dip (tasty) and a stout based cheese/white sauce which was pleasant. Then I had the pork/veal meatballs (small and gristly) with tasty green veg, a yummy rich creamy sauce and a colossal pile of mashed potato which looked ridiculous and I left most. He had the steak and said it was fatty. Dessert-I had Eton mess which was a container full of heavy sweetened whipped cream with some fragments of crushed meringue and about 6 berries-the balance was wrong. He had the honey comb with chocolate sauce which was about 3 massive slabs of honeycomb almost guaranteed to rip your fillings out, and a small pitcher of chocolate. He said he would have preferred an actual crunchie bar and I agreed. Quite pricey for what you get. We last visited this pub 30 years ago on our first date when all we could afford were crisps. It has improved since then, but think I am happy to wait another 30 years before I return. visited The Leather Bottle on 20 May 2016

Love love love this pub!! It os so beautiful inside, vibey outside and massive. Best pub in London for the few days of summer we do have. But... The service is absolutely shocking! Waiting staff running around like headless chickens and seem like they have zero waiting experience and all started on the day. Getting wrong stuff on wrong tabs, taking ages to bring something u asked for and generally confused. This might be down to training but must definately step uo a notch or 3. Food lovely, pork roast to die for! But needs more gravy.
