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!

My grandfather was the manager of this pub, which was owned by a relative by marriage. He was given the job about the time he married into the family in 1907 and stayed until called up in 1916. I think he the moved to North London after the war. His name was George Henry John Holland, known to all as Jack. His wife was Ellen Maria, and she collected china ornaments which customers would bring back from their holidays. The marriage broke down before 1916 & she moved out with her son. *
