When I was taking this photo one of the locals was watching me, he said what are you doing, I said Im taking a photo of the pub with my camera he looked surprised and said thats the first time Ive seen a camera.
So I took one of him and showed it to him, his face lit up when he saw the image of himself.
I said why did they build that little extension on the right like a little detached house, he said he hadnt really noticed it before

One of my locals for 10years!

Mick, it’s only in Abram, it’s not the upper reaches of the Zambezi River!
You’ll be telling us next that the local had a bone through his nose.

I haven't been in The Buck's Head for 30 years!. I too would probably have a bone through my nose if we had a butcher's in Abram but we haven't! I do like The Buck's Head building though and I believe they do excellent food.
