From the rear side cover: This book is the second in a series on the history of the buildings of Bodmin and the people who lived and worked in them. It covers the years from 1791 to 1939 with some earlier and a few post WW2 records. The objective was to identify historical Bodmin Hotels and Inns by their names, dates and site positions. Comparison of the earlier data with modern street plans has allowed the identification of the modern site occupiers. The book contains many old and new photographs of the individual buildings.

The book mentions over 50 pubs, inns and hotels, including the Barley Sheaf, Garland Ox, Oliver's Hotel, St Petroc's Hotel, George & Dragon, Bell Inn, Globe, Blue Hart, Golden Lion, Talbot Inn, Pack Horse, Hole in the Wall, Pape's Hotel, Three Cranes, Jewell's Hotel, Queen's Head, Cat & Fiddle, Joll's Hotel, Turks Head, Cornish Arms, King's Arms, Railway Arms Inn, Waggoners Arms, London Inn, Red Lion Inn, Duke of Cornwall, Maltster's Arms, Rose & Crown, Eight Bells, Masons Arms, Royal Hotel, White Hart, Miner's Arms, Fountain Inn, William IV, Spry's Arms, and more!
