A first in here the other late afternoon with my group of seven, which far outnumbered the customers inside, though a few were having a fag at the outside tables. Little seems to have changed since the reviews below, but what I can say is that this pub is not associated with the Southampton Arms, though it does have a Meat, Ale & Cider sign which is uncannily similar to that at the Southampton.
Indeed, this is a very opened-out pub with a modern bare boarded floor, old school furniture and conventional wooden chairs, some of which have been painted in primary colours. Further seating comes in the form of opposing pews. Lighting in part comes from large steel cylindrical hanging lamps. The only real nod to its past are the six columns with their ornate capitals. The end result is that this isn’t at all pubby or cosy – a bit sterile, and certainly more gastropub than boozer, as agreed below.
Ales: one unused pump, Windsor & Eaton’s Conqueror, New River’s Blind Poet, Signature Brew’s Nightliner, Acorn’s Black Oak, Driver’s Twist and Oakham’s Citra at £2.00 a half and good.
This place may offer a great ale selection and perhaps the food is good too, but it doesn’t really pamper and with the poor acoustics, wouldn’t divert my attention long enough to warrant a prolonged stay but is certainly worthy of any crawl of the area.

A swift visit as the last pub of the evening means that my memories of The Jolly Butchers aren't as clear as they might be.
It's an open plan, square interior with mismatched furniture featuring a fair bit of scrubbed pine.
Food was popular on our Thursday evening visit but there certainly weren't any problems with just having a drink and it feels more pubby than restaurant.
The beer selection was very good featuring Cloudwater Spring and Summer, which was excellent, Salvation Pale Ale, Burning Sky Aurora, Dockers Delight One Mile End, West Berkshire Brewery Screaming Eagle and Arbor & Mezzo Passo Basta Rosse.
I'd happily return for a longer visit to try the ale range.

Sister pub to both the Southampton Arms and Cock Tavern,it retains elements of both these fine pubs but is also different .There is a mix of both real ale and real cider but not in the same volume,and reflecting the upmarket nature of the area,food features large from an open kitchen in one corner.The building itself is street corner Victorian,and the interior just a square open plan space with traditional square wooden tables,benches and chairs and less basic than the other pubs.The supporting columns are a main feature as is an unusual rear wallpaper design on the way to the downstairs loo.
However top quality brewers will be featured on the handpumps,the selection was eclectic and my Arbor and Mezzo Passo collaboration brew called Basta Rosse was an interesting red ale.
I would be quite happy to return,it was popular on my Thursday evening visit .
