The modern day address is 14, Lynch Road. In the 1927 Kelly’s Directory the Boars Head is listed at Salter Street.
In 1931 the licensee of the pub was John Northcott who was then 69 years of age. He had been at the Boars Head for 21 years (1910).
On the 18th September 1924 it was reported that the pub was suffering decreased trade, which was accounted for by the reduction in hours and a slump in trade at the nearby Sharpness Docks.
Pete Stump (Landlord in 2008), is a keen local historian and kindly provided information on the pubs of Berkeley. Pete told me that his great-grandfather was William Charles Stump who was landlord of the George Inn in the early 1920’s.
