    It's the top row I am interested in; clearly it says Public House, so he worked in a bar/inn, I don't think he ran it. But also does that say "Jewlerers Assistant"? and would the "White" then refer to the type of metal e.g. silver?

    It's Sidney P Cox in Camberwell 1901

    Yes, Pewterer's Assistant. Public House might indicate that he was making beer mugs and tankards rather than anything else in pewter.

    White looks like the enumerator's note of the occupational classification, since Pewterer is a kind of Whitesmith.
