Welcome...to The Leafy Elephant
The Leafy Elephant is an independent table service gin bar in the centre of Wokingham offering over 200 different gins from around the world. However you like your gin, whether aromatic, citrusy, spicy, fruity, chocolatey or in your favourite cocktail, you will be spoilt for choice and, paired with just the right tonic (and we have a few of those as well), your gin drinking will be taken to new heights.
The bar is conveniently situated in Peach Place, with access from Rose Street, Peach Street and Bush Walk. The theme is botanicals, with décor to match, and the bar has an outside seating area for those warm summer evenings when nothing but fresh air and sunshine (and a fabulous gin and tonic) will do.
Nibbles and small plates are available to complement your choice of gin and we have a small but perfectly formed list of wines, local craft beers and bubbles if, for some inexplicable reason, gin is not your thing. We also have non-alcoholic
gin and soft drinks; what’s not to like?
“Why are you called The Leafy Elephant?”, we hear you ask. As a family we have over the years been lucky enough to visit a number of African countries for holiday and work and of all the animals we have been fortunate enough to see we think the elephant is the most interesting. The family groups, the matriarchs, the bulls with the largest tusks and the babies who are still too young to know what their trunk is for, all provide a fascinating experience, notwithstanding the challenges they face. So we thought we had to have ‘Elephant’ in our name. The ‘Leafy’ bit –well, it just seemed to fit with the botanical theme we had decided to use for the bar!
As a business we have decided that it would be appropriate to support elephant conservation and have adopted Save the Elephants as our charity. For more information on the charity, click here. £2 from the sale of every one of our signature cocktails, perhaps unsurprisingly called ‘A Leafy Elephant’, will be donated to the charity.
As a business we are always open to suggestions as to how to make our customers’ experiences even better so if you have an idea that you’d like to share with us, please get in touch. Otherwise, please follow us on our social media feeds. We will be having tastings, music evenings and other events you won’t want to miss and as the bar is not enormous, you’ll need to make sure you get in quickly when we announce them.
We look forward to seeing you at The Leafy Elephant.
