Welcome to the Buttery!

The Buttery is the very heart of the Hawkshead campus! Part of the RVC SU, The Buttery has been the best pub to catch up over a pint, or four, with RVC students and staff since 1958.

At The Buttery you will always find a friendly face, live sport and good music played on our high quality sound system. The pub is well equipped with draught lager and cider as well as bottled beers, ciders, spirits and snacks at student friendly prices.  


Be sure not to miss out on our devilish new Buttery Bomb (4 for £5) and our new cocktail menu (2 for £5!)

We also have a gorgeous beer garden that is the perfect place to catch some sun or enjoy a BBQ with a refreshing drink.
