In summer the terrace, overlooking the river and the Berkshire Downs, creates a scented idyllic setting surrounded by flowers and herbs. During the cooler months, a warming log fire provides a luxurious glow as you enjoy the culinary delights of the kitchen. The dining room itself has a discreet and friendly service, with a relaxed elegance inspired by the river views, vivid paintings and striking fresh flowers. Head Chef Stuart Cockwell has a passion for the freshest ingredients and locality. The menu is full of delightfully fragrant dishes with modern twists.

    Crockery OK but there were water marks on the cutlery which spoiled the experience. Food excellent.

    Our normal venue is The Springs but thee weeks ago when we arrived there a power cut had closed the hotel.for any catering. The receptionist recommended we go to The Leatherne Bottel. We weer delighted with everything, ambience, staff, food etc. Definitely a return visit. We returned on Sunday June 2nd inviting two friends from Thame and two from Cardiff to join us in a lunchtime birthday celebration. Ambience,staff etc perfect. Four of our party had the roast beef. It was served red in colour, almost raw, impossible to even chew. The roast potatoes were hard and difficult to cut whist the Yorkshire puddings were black, totally over cooked. It really was the worst Sunday roast we have ever accounted. Our friends did not complain to the waiter until afterwards, they did not wish embarrassing my husband as it was his treat. Two of us did enjoy the hake. 75% of the beef went in doggy bags and the animals were very happy. Starters and sweets were excellent. Having our coffee in the open and watching the ducks and the boats going by did ease our disappointment.

    We dined mid week in the evening. Its hard to review a restaurant that seems to get so much right. I have been dining out for many years and i am always aprehensive in trying new restaurants because when they are rated so highly you dont want to be dissapointed.You wont be if you were to dine here. From the welcoming right through to the door being opened for us as we were leaving, everything was made perfect for us. The staff were friendly and very attentive and the chef topped off the day to make sure everything was to our liking. Beef weelington with crisp pastry and tender beef which the chef let us know that he ages the meat on site to make sure of the quality. Top that off with fine wines and homemade desserts, with the classic style of years gone by with modern techniques and flavours.Over all a top meal, my only gripe is that on these long dark evenings some subtle sounds in the background wouldnt go a miss.

    Dined at 1.30pm Food inventive with flavours but not to the detriment of the dish. Nothing bad to add.

    The food here is fantstic. we normally go on a warm sunny day and sit on the terrace overlooking the Thames just watching the boats go by. It has always been one of our favourite localish places to eat, partly because the menu is so varied and the staff just can't do enough to help you.
