Address as Northend in 1822 to 1856.

Caister Road 1865 - 1883

13 Northgates Street in 1888.

Located on the corner of Garrison Road and Northgate Street.

Licensee Robert Bacon had a pony stolen during August 1864. It was found in Norwich, in the hands of the police, having been sold by one George Gowing, to the licensee of the Ship Inn, Norwich. Gowing was sentenced to Three Months' hard labour.

Robert Bacon and dealer William Betts were accused September 1864 of having obtained a donkey and £3 from Robert Dane, of Repps, by false pretences. They were committed to trial.

Recorded 1903 as owned by the Charity Trustees of Great Yarmouth and leased to Steward & Patteson.

On Thursday 2nd March 1905., Messrs. Lacon & Co. explained that they had purchased, for £200, the lease and had paid for a valuation of the fixtures and fittings. Their intention was to demolish the property, thus effecting a much desired public improvement, free of cost to the rate payers. They would drop the full licence and apply for a new beer and wine licence for a property to be built on the New England Estate, off Northgate Street. The new site had 170 houses already erected, 77 under construction and 189 more planned for the future.
It was said that there was an understanding by the Corporation that the Charity Trustees would in any event have carried out the improvement upon the expiry of lease, in five years time. It would be to their benefit since the estate was developing very rapidly with sites for over 400 house being provided.
The Charity Trustees said that if the present scheme was not sanctioned then the Waggon & Horses would be rebuilt at a cost of £860, it would be a quiet and unassuming property of nice class.
In order to achieve the new licence, Messrs. Lacon & Co. were prepared to spend some £2,200 for the new site and construction.
The magistrates approved the scheme on condition that the new house be completed,  the Waggon & Horses be demolished and road improvements be made before the next Licensing Meeting.

Licence surrendered 18.08.1905 in consideration of a new licence for the LACON ARMS at Alderson Road.
