Directory of Pubs in the UK, historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Manchester, Lancashire.
Lancashire & Manchester pub history index
The 1911 census is very useful in researching pub history, but also massive. Every page added is linked to one address, and takes a considerable amount of time to research. The 1911 census also includes a summary of the census, it is a simple list of addresses, and the head of household; it is incredibly useful (sometimes) in that it often names the beer houses.
Here are a most entries for Manchester, listed by area and district. I should point out that these are summaries, and transcribed at a speed. If you want to query the results, it is best that you research the area yourself.
