the corner with Carey’s Lane just up from the Kings cinema, this was one of two pubs

The lease on the Bunch of Grapes was bought by James Lockley, brewer of Lewin’s Mead
on 5th January 1888 and was one of 22 leases sold to the Bristol United Breweries
Limited by James Lockley on 25th March 1892 for a total of £11,000.

The interior of the Bunch of Grapes probably taken at the same time as the main picture
in 1909. Not to be confused with the Three Horse Shoes across the road, which is
now known as the Long Bar. Barry Graham informs us that the two gents behind the
bar in this picture are Henry (Harry) Burt and Henry Burt jnr. Barry’s mother in
law is Henry Burt’s Granddaughter.
