Referenced as a property leased to Bullards but lease not renewed on expiry 24.06.1905.

On Tuesday 4th March 1913 the property was described as a beerhouse, owned by Lacon & Co. It was run by the manageress, who lived there with her husband and two children. She paid no rent, the brewers paying all rates and taxes, also 2½ per cent to the caretakers.
The bar was very small and the three bedrooms very small with low ceilings and very badly lighted. The kitchen was quite dark.
The structural conditions were said to be very bad.
Notice of licence refusal had been issued on the grounds of redundancy, but it was claimed that the house was the worst in the neighbourhood. The house had been selected by the Chief Constable because it was structurally unfit and nobody living there could be healthy. He claimed that he could not have found a worse house in the area.
Trade for the past three years was 101½ barrels and 186 dozen of bottled beer. It had a compensation value of £800.
In 1910 the trade was 114¼ barrels and 194 dozen of bottled beer.
In 1911 it was 188 barrels and 121 dozen bottles
In 1912 it was 81½ barrels and 243 dozen bottles.
The drop in trade in 1912 being one of those inexplicable things, but the summer had been bad and all houses were effected alike.

Referred to compensation.


Licence renewal refused 11th July 1913.
(Licensee Sidney Pask named on application, but from licence registers it seems he had departed in June 1913)

Licence Expired 30th September 1913
