A substantial Mc Mullens tied house,it's essentially a large open plan room but divided by columns and has a traditional feel with lots of wood panelling,carpeted throughout,large mirrors and a long bar at the rear of the room.What catches your attention however are the number of flatscreen together with a large drop down screening the horse racing on the left hand wall.On the opposite wall there is a darts board with a good throw.
It's a locals boozer although corporate 2 for 1 food is offered.
The ale selection was Mac's AK,Country and their Rivertown Brewing Hades (too warm).Live music at weekends,Sky and BT Sports this serves it's local community well but I found it all rather dull.My departure drew a comment from a regular that was none too polite ,so despite a friendly welcome from the barmaid,strangers are noted with some suspicion.

This is still a McMullen's pub, and the interior still seems to be as described by the previous reviewer. It's actually quite traditional, with a carpeted floor, normal tables and chairs - plus fruit machines and TVs of course, a dartboard with attendant silverware on a shelf above it, and a table football game. But the most striking feature of this pub is the exterior, with the frieze at the top of the first floor showing its name in jaunty script on the left, with a more bacchanalian scene on the right. It's very impressive.

The beers on were all from McMullens, with AK (£3.50 a pint), Cask, Country, and Royale (£3.60 a pint) all on. I didn't see any sign of food, although the sign outside said "traditional food served daily". This is a straightforward locals' pub, with no airs or graces, and which hasn't been refurbished to death. There was a good crowd in on early Friday evening, and it's good to see a pub like this thriving.

The Jolly Butchers is a traditional Victorian fronted pub a short way down Baker Street from the Enfield Civic Centre and is part of the McMullen brewery chain. It used to be a bit dark and grotty, but underwent a Mcmullen makeover a little while back which, unlike other recent refurbs of their pubs, actually improved the place without ripping out all the interesting features and making it a restaurant.
Although the profusion of dark wood remains it has been toned down with lighter flock wallpaper and the expanse of front glass has been freed from curtains making it now a fairly light and airy pub.
It’s proximity to the civic centre means it’s usually busy of a lunch time with the local council workers, but tends to be a quieter option during the evening than the other nearby pubs in Baker Street who go for bands and Karaoke evenings to pack them in.
As mentioned by the reviewer below, The Jolly Butchers has three plasma screens dotted about for the footy and a dart board which supports an active darts team in the local leagues. Usual McMullen suspects on offer and the Country has usually been good on my infrequent visits.
