Still googling here... it must be a small place, all Googles lead to Stratford upon Avon!

Francis Frith (http://www.francisfrith.com/search/england/warwickshire/welford+on+avon/photos/welford+on+avon_photos.htm) has several old pictures of Boat Lane, Welford-on-Avon. Perhaps the lane was named after the inn!

Having started off in the wrong county, I realised that this was in Gloucestershire by the thread title. :o However, the village is now nestling in Warwickshire (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=57072).
There are some photographs (http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=2703242) showing the houses in Boat Lane. If it is anything like the village in which I live, some of the public houses are now private dwellings. So, the Boat Inn may be amongst them.
