Welcome to The Leather Bottle Cobham, a pub known to many as Charles Dickens' Favourite Ale House in Cobham.

Today our 17th century building gives a relaxed modern atmosphere. We pride ourselves in offering freshly prepared and locally sourced dishes and change our menu seasonally.

We have a beautiful private Cocktail & Tapas lounge serving freshly prepared cocktails that are made from scratch by our lovely team and a wide range of tasty Tapas dishes. 
We also have one of the most stunning and biggest gardens around with an outside bar, covered marquees and occasional BBQ’s, visit our “What's On” page to find out when we have our next big event.
