Graham Coombs left this review about Bucks Head

Typically Camden marginally-trendy pub aiming squarely at tourists and shoppers. The one slightly-cluttered room was decorated with various images of 60's London and music stuff, while tables were in great demand by lunchers. A terrace was signed at the rear but not visited. Draught ales were Truman Lazurus and Runner, Doom Bar and a very drinkable Southwark LPA.

Quite well described below, the highlight being Camden's own Nutty Boys being played over the stereo at a muted level. Less attractive was the games machine and mirror ball. Typically, the pub is bare boarded and dark with mixed furniture and a touristy crowd, so it's obvious that the Camden Weird Brigade don't come in here.
Ales served by a rather clueless barmaid: Hobgoblin, Southwark's London Pale Ale, Fuller's London Pride and Redemption's Hopspur at £2.20 a half which was slightly off; the patrons didn't strike me as being particularly likely to be drawn to real beer.
This isn't a great place and I don't envisage a return visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Bucks Head

Small 'L'-shaped bar, with thin steel columns supporting the upper floors so the original rooms must have been tiny. Traditional dark furniture, but rather more fashionable decor. Sports TVs. Exterior has been repainted fairly recently, making the Truman plaque more prominent but the unusual pub signs on each façade less so. Now has four handpumps, with Pride, Hobgoblin, Spitfire and London Beer Factory Chelsea Blonde (£4.15) available on this visit.
