Have you ever run a Pub? You can add your pub history to the UK pub history site. You can contact the pub history site via my email : Kevan. There are over 10,500 images on the site and more than 47,000 pages of pub history - these numbers increase every day as I add new pub history research. The pub history site has now been evolving for more than ten years, with a significant number of additional pub history researchers who regularly update the site with historical detail and imagery, old and new.
This is a local search engine of the UK Pub history site. You can search by surname, street address, or public house name. The search engine updates weekly. If you are looking for a specific pub history listing, some of these can only be found in the sitemap - see the navigation bar on the left.

Southwark St John index
At 2 St Thomas Street by 1891. Thomas Street is listed in 1869 as between numbers 17 & 22 Gainsford Street, and the Grapes is listed at number 50 Gainsford Street; therefore these may not be entirely the same Pub. In 1839, the address of the Grapes is at 51 Gainsford Street.

I am still on the hunt for my ancestor Paul Rider and have searched the
victualler liscence records.
I have him listed as publican from 1818 -1827 at the corner of Gainsford Street and Thomas Street. I had been told that this pub was THE GRAPES but that may be a name given to it later because Paul is listed at that address but the pub is actually called SHIPS IN DISTRESS.
The person who continually stood surity for Paul Rider was Evan Owan of the Rose and Crown at Shad Thames. This is not the same Rose and Crown that Paul was later Publican of at 113 Long Lane Bermondsey.
My ancestor, Paul Rider [Ryder], is listed as publican of The Grapes, Gainsford Street Horsleydown in 1828. Between 1836 -1941 he is listed as publican of The Rose and Crown ,Long Lane, Bermondsey. He moved to Stockton Durham in 1841 [before the census] and died there in 1843. On his death certificate he is given as a licensed victualler. His wife Sarah is listed in Wear Street Sunderland 1851 census as a publican **
