Essex is well endowed with good country Inns and the Leather Bottle certainly comes into this category.

The pub has a cosy snug bar in which to enjoy a drink before sampling some of the culinary delights on offer. The cuisine is a blend of European and traditional English. All meals are made from fresh local produce and the emphasis is on freshly cooked, which may mean a brief wait but as with everything that's good, it's well worth the wait.

Visited for Sunday Lunch after seeing reviews online. We were impressed by the tradional pub feel and the range and quality of the real ales. The food was a huge let down and frankly was of the quality of a well-known pub chain. The duck pate appeared and tasted as though it was mass produced and the crayfish salad was like a sandwich filling and was so cold it had very little flavour. My wife's main dish of lamb's liver was rather chewy and the bubble and squeak was lacking in any seasoning. My lamb was fine and came with a darkened Yorkshire pudding and some shop bought mint sauce. There were no roast potatoes which I though was an oversight on my part but when I noticed other tables receiving them after we had finished our mains, I queried this with one of the waitresses who told me they should have brought them but that I should have asked. She did apologise and asked if I wanted them although we had finished. We also noticed a young waitress wiping a table around the cutlery which had been left by a previous diner and I had a glass with a very large crack in it. All in all a very disappointing meal although the village itself is very pretty.

 

all good

Great local pub offering well put together menu with interesting twists on firm favorites and handmade additions from the chef. Well worth a visit even if not eating. We've been for evening meals, sunday lunches and never been disappointed.
