February 1909 for permitting drunkenness on licensed premises.
Fine £2 and 13s costs.
( pre 1687 ) to 09.11.1887.
Stood on the corner of Queen Street and Baker Lane.
Referred for Compensation 08.02.1909
Licence refused at Compensation Authority meetings of 21st and 23rd
June 1909. Reported as an alehouse, owned by Steward & Patteson Ltd and run by
licensee Robert G Kirk. ( The latter appears to be in error since according
to the Licence registers, Mr Kirk had left by April 1909 )
The plot thickens....
In the Lynn Advertiser of 24th December 1909,
it is again Mr Kirk who is credited with still being tenant.
( Perhaps Mr Griffin was a brewery employee holding the licence, and Mr Kirk
was still employed at the house, having lost his licence due to his
misdemeanour in February 1909, but not replaced because the pub was destined
for closure? )
The December report recorded that average beer sales were 104 barrels, which
had a 10 year value of £520. Spirit sales were 22 gallons per annum, valued
at £22, bottled beer ( pints) were 88 dozen at £22; minerals 138 dozen at
£34/10/-. Rent was £10 pa with 18 years lease remaining ( £180);
depreciation of fixtures £7.
This gave a total value of £807, from which the unlicensed value of £224 was
deducted, giving final value of £538/10/-.
The full value was awarded by the Compensation Committee, with a split of
£525/7/- awarded to the owners and £58/3/- to the tenant.
Licence extinct 07.06.1910
