On Thursday 17th June 1858, James Shreeve fell from a cart loaded with beer, on the way from Yarmouth to Gorleston. He died the following day. He was aged 27.

On Friday 13th January 1905 the licence was transferred and the Chairman said that the rent-book recorded £25 as the yearly rent. The Bullards representative stated that the rent was £10 per year. The low value had been set due to the house being closed for repairs and had been set to encourage the tenant. In two years time the trade would have increased to warrant a rent of £25.

On Tuesday 4th March 1913 an application was made for licence renewal. The house was described as a beerhouse, owned by Bullard & Sons.
Notice had been served on 19th February of the intended refusal of licence renewal owing to redundancy.
Consumption was about half-a-gallon a week, but increased during the fishing season.
The bar was small and badly constructed, the tap room was very small. A room behind the bar was in fair repair as was the kitchen and other rooms, but generally it was structurally unsuited and accommodation was bad. The two front bedroom ceilings were low but in good condition, whereas the staircase ceiling was damp and stained.
During the fishing season trade increased and lodgers of humble character were taken in, the tenants sometimes giving up their beds and sleeping downstairs, to make room for their visitors.
Licence renewed.

Referred for Compensation 03.02.1925 & again 28.09.1925

Licence renewal refused at the Principal Meeting for the Licensing (Consolidation) Act 1910, held 17th June 1925.

A notice was published 27th June 1925 informing any person, due compensation from the closure of the premises, to make their claim by 27th July 1925.

Licence expired 30.09.1925
