Well the pub is sadly now closed and boarded up, however a sign fixed to the door claims this is because the landlord has left for personal reasons and that the closure is temporary. Let's hope so.

London Drinker reports that the pub is now demolished. Another one gone.

Charlie Butler was the head drayman at Young’s brewery for over 40 years, and this pub was named after him when it was built in 1968. It replaced an older pub on the site called the Old George. This pub has been under threat of closure for some while, and it’s imminent demise might well be foreshadowed by the fact that the excellent pub sign, featuring Charlie with a drayhorse called Steve, has gone leaving a gaping hole in the metal frame. But when I was in the other day it didn’t look like a pub that was about to close as someone was painting (or perhaps touching up) a mural on the back wall featuring a man at a bar counter.
The pub itself still has two large separate rooms, which was still the vogue in 1968. I spent my visit in the room on the right, which is simply furnished with normal tables and chairs, including an ornate six-seater table in the middle of the room. One table was laid for diners (but unoccupied during my late lunchtime visit). There’s also a small alcove of a room to the left of the main room, plus a bit of outdoor seating. There’s not a great deal of decor – mainly chalkboards advertising some food (burger, chips and veg for £7.80) and forthcoming attractions, including some live music. But one piece of decor caught my eye – another bright mural on the right hand wall depicting such iconic, and highly appropriate, images such as the University Boat Race and the Young’s drays.
I would say that this ought to be the sort of place that one could visit to enjoy a quiet pint, but the quietness was seriously disturbed during my visit by the loud rock music being played. Nonetheless I hope that the rumours of this pub’s demise have been exaggerated.

Nice looking place. Light grey & cream interior. Youngs ale only. Bit on the dark side inside. Covered patio area.
