Great afternoon at the Butchers. The Grand National live on multiple tv's. Great atmosphere. The Landlord kindly laid on cheese and bread for the regulars. What great hospitality from a traditional Yeovil pub.

The smell when you enter is the first negative about this pub. If you wasn't depressed before you go here you will be by the time you leave (which will probably be after 1 drink!!) The place looks filthy - however, it was noted that...More

A very traditional pub with a great history. Not many left these days in towns. 27 a day in the U.K. closing down. This one oozes tradition and loyalty. Use it or loose it. Given a choice most will continue to use it ! A...More
