Komakino . left this review about The Butcher's Tap

A third Tom Kerridge hostelry in this well-heeled Thames-side town after The Hand & Flowers and The Coach. As noted below, this operates as a butchery until 5pm, becoming a pub thereafter. Smaller than previous incarnations (The Carpenters Arms and O'Donoghue's) this has a deep marble-topped servery against the right-hand wall, almost taking up half the internal space, with a smattering of tables and chairs opposite, although there is an alcovey bit by the front window. Black and white tile effect floor, part-wooden walls with part black tiles and three small flatscreen TVs amongst some butching paraphernalia (there's meat also hanging in the front window). Two ales on - local Rebellion Smuggler (£4) and "Hand & Flowers IPA" (there's a GK sign outside, so take a guess). Slightly overloud muzak in the Jack Johnson vein (yawn) and the overall impression is of somewhere to avoid feline-swinging if there's more than a handful of people in.

Bought by Tom Kerridge it will operate as a butchers during the day and from 5pm onwards, will turn into a pub offering “simple, meat-led” food, with beers on tap, as well as wine, spirits and community nights.

Basic L-shaped Greene King owned Oirish boozer. Wood floor, greyish paint job. Rear area has locals marker pen graffiti on the ceiling, unusual but oddly compelling. Dog friendly, live music. Three ales and interestingly no GK fayre - Hooky, Rebellion Smuggler and a pretty disappointing Purity UBU. Friendly - if robust - patrons. It's OK for what it is.
