Who were the Tennants of above pub in the 1950s as I believe it could be my father Bernard Corr? *

In the 1946 to 1949 BT Telephone Directories, Bernard Corr is at 53 Buross street, which is the Refiners Arms

1951 - 52/Bernard Corr, 31 Praed street W2/../../BT Telephone Directory [PADdngtn 9536]

By 1953 and up to 1957, there is a B Corr at the Roebuck, 50 Great Dover street.
