The Leathern Bottle Pub, Lewknor

This beautiful Oxfordshire pub sits in the foothills of the Chilterns, located in the quiet village of Lewknor near Watlington. Whilst the Brakspear's pub itself dates back over 450 years, the current proprietors have successfully managed it and been a friendly face behind the bar for the past 30.

In that time The Leathern Bottle (otherwise known as Ye Olde Leathern Bottel) has established a reputation for great, home-cooked pub food offering an extensive menu across three bars and featuring both locally sourced meats and daily specials. The Lewknor pub regularly appears in the Good Pub Guide and serves the finest Brakspears' beers.

If you are looking for a Chiltern's pub which is family run and child-friendly, pet-friendly, features cosy, open fires, a warm welcome, large beer garden and a children's play area, come along to The Leathern Bottle.

Our location is very convenient (just off the M40 at Junction 6 and a stop for the Oxford Tube) for all the pleasures of the surrounding countryside including numerous walking trails (we are just off the Ridgeway), cycle routes, bridlepaths, not to mention some of the best dog walking to be found.

Did we mention the Red Kites? The area has the greatest concentration of Red Kites in England and a sighting of one of these amazing birds of prey (only the Golden Eagle is bigger) is almost guaranteed... and you won't even have to get up from your bench in the beer garden!
