Great beer, good food & friendly service. Lovely bug old fashioned Fullers pub. I would recommend everything except the noise/music. Unfortunately we had to shout to be heard. Please turn it right down or even off next time. geraldjames visited The Butcher's Hook and Cleaver on 25 Feb 2016

Handmade pies are of great quality. Nice pub layout and atmosphere. Unfortunately there was no ESB ale at the time. Excellent service! They took orders at the table and helped with the drinks. bez visited The Butcher's Hook and Cleaver on 11 Jan 2016

Probably the best pies in town - the chicken, ham and leek pie was SO good! Will definitely be back to try another soon. Lovely venue which has so much room.
