I wrote a pub trail about Wotton in 1979 and have updated it since but not had it reprinted. Most of the information has been placed on the Gloucestershire Pubs website.
In 1852 the Apple Tree was occupied by Henry Perrett who a few years’ earlier is recorded as being a farmer at Apple Tree Farm, Waterley Bottom, which presumably gave rise to the pub name, first recorded in 1875.
There was also a Coach and Horses in Culverhay recorded in the 1851 census.
In the White Lion photo, the licencee was Henry Penton from around 1870 to the early 1880s. The building at the top of the street was the police station from 1863 having previously been the location of the Royal Oak.

Very good, thanks. For those who've not visited it, the Gloucestershire Pubs website is very interesting, and some great information from John Cordwell:

The search facility is just a bit quirky, but a search under GL12 seems to being up Wotton's pubs and others in the locality.

Looks like there are only two of Wotton's pubs that have been obliterated entirely from the map; The Pack Horse in Haw Street in the dark days of 1978, and the Mitre Inn in the dark days of 2013.

The Crown in Market Street was demolished and rebuilt. The Coach and Horses has gone and others, some of whose exact location is unknown. I think I have located the position of the Bear Inn behind the Star using the 1763 borough map and other evidence.
