St Andrews Day Boozer

The Butchers Hook & Cleaver, pay homage to "Braveheart"

Location: 61 West Smithfield, EC1A 9DY

Description: If for nothing else, I'd recommend you get down to this pub for the name along...

The Butchers Hook & Cleaver.

Well it's traditional and literally in spitting distance of where William Braveheart Wallace was executed by the English in 1305...charming!

So when the special days comes round again - 30th November - get down here to raise a dram or two to the warrior's memory.

Or pay it a visit and revel in a quality named pub!
