Thailand shooting victim Stephen Ashton, 22, was a regular at the Rectory pub in Brighton Road, Purley.
Deputy manager Matthew Hitchmough said:
He had been coming in here for quite some time, and was bubbly - he always had friends and girls round him.
I didn't know him particularly well, just to say a few words to, but he was a nice man - I can't say a bad word about him.
It's certainly a shock to hear this has happened, I know that a few of the people who come in go to Thailand for Christmas and new year.
