Butchers Arms

Picture source: Chris Amies

The Butchers Arms was situated at 149 Thessaly Road.

My name is Alan Byrne and I am currently researching my second book, which is based on the career of the late Phil Lynott, of Thin Lizzy fame. During the course of my research I have discovered that 'The Butchers Arms' in Battersea was a local that the band frequented during the recording of their albums, 'Jailbreak and Johnny The Fox', somewhat breakthrough albums for the band.
I am trying to establish some information on the pub and would welcome any feedback you may be able to provide. The recording studio used by the band was Ramport, said to be situated a short distance away from the pub where the then producer, John Alcock frequently recalled having to drag the band back into the studio to continue working on the album.
As previously mentioned, if you might have any information regarding a history of ownership etc, the closure of the pub etc I would greatly appreciate it for my research.
