The UK Pub history site and street directory, plus research of pubs, publicans, hotels and beer houses

The outline of the pub history site is to list ALL pubs of the last 200 years with detailed information on each, including their occupants and staff members; i.e. it is a genealogical search tool. It is never exhaustive, but it's pretty damned good so far. Please help me make it better if you have anything to add. Use the search engine to find pubs by name, publicans and bar staff by name, or just use it as a historical street directory - all detail on one site of about 50 thousand pages and over 10 thousand images. The site lists all counties in England, but some are sparse in content, whilst London and the South is very well documented. Use the links above to traverse the site; and if a search fails, type your search into google, find the relevant page on Ewans pubology site and it brings you back here again!

Public Houses, Inns & Taverns of Saffron Walden

Directory of Pubs in the UK, historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Essex . The Essex listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

Superb 1906 picture of the Abbey Hotel, High Street, Saffron Walden.

It sort of spoils the site, being a Temperance Hotel - but what a nice picture.
