It’s not a joke. At the Pistols Saloon in this coastal town, Huckleberry the donkey is one of the favourite patrons and a regular face at the bar. He drinks Coke (from the can), eats carrots, and is pampered by all the other patrons. This family bar and museum in Old Main Road, Ramsgate is definitely not your usual hang-out. There’s a Wild West Museum next door to the bar, with lots of cowboy memorabilia and information about Indians and the Most Wanted criminals of that era, including Billy the Kid and Frank and Jesse James.

There is lots to see and explore for the kids as well as a selection of arcade-style games.  For the adults, there are the regular music shows (naturally including country music) and a real Western bar, complete with an old piano.  In the Pistols Saloon, every little detail is remembered, even the toilets, which are designated for Cowboys and Cowgirls.

When you walk through the swing doors, a sign against the wall warns you that it is a family restaurant and that swearing won’t be tolerated. For every swearword, you must pay a fine of R2, and this money is donated to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Enjoy live entertainment every weekend.
