Perhaps I'm missing something obvious but why is it called "The Butts Grill" when it is nowhere either Summerlands Butts or Barkers Butts?

No idea about this one, but in medieval times a butt was a field for archery.

I think Butt was the owner's family name -(It was owned by Mr Butt). Apparently after leaving the shop there, they moved and reopened further down Lower Ford Street.

Ah thanks Garlands Thumbs up I thought perhaps it might have originated in the Butts and later moved to Lower Ford Street.

An up-to-date equivalent view of the 1986 image Thumbs up I am SO glad that I took this photo, as if anyone asks me for directions to the "Finger Licking Kitchen and Jerk Centre" I shall know where to send them Wink - it's the new name for "The Butts Grill"

Hi Midland Red Wave , Quite a bit of change over 30 years, until sometime last year Tony's Chip shop was still there (where the Chilli Fried Chicken shop is now, next to the Newsagents). Thumbs up
