Formerly the roughest pub in N16, with a late licence that attracted the local waifs and strays, this poor old pub has reverted to its former name under the same ownership as the Rose and Crown up the road. The transformation couldn't be more complete. Now described as an 'Ale and Cider' house, expect up to nine real ales from smaller breweries on tap, along with real ciders and Belgian offerings. The pub layout is rather gastro in its approach, but still inviting; note the original tiling behind the bar. Open a while now, things are settling down nicely. The friendly staff are pretty knowledgeable about the wares they serve, too. The clientele are also a mixed bunch - well, as mixed as you'll find in N16; even Sunday afternoon lacked the usual depressing Stokie Three Wheeled Pram User Group, while weekends are incredibly busy - almost a victim of its own success. Although you'll find a small tasty menu on offer, beer is the star here - as it should be in a pub - so we wish the Jolly Butchers all the best.

Had a great drink here last night. Good choice of beers, and also a Ross on Wye Cider & Perry on tap. Will definitely go back!
