Built 1845 as a shooting lodge.
Purchased by Bullards and initially known
as the NEW INN.

Mr. & Mrs. Vasser announced 23rd June 1849 that they had entered the Inn, which had been tastefully fitted up and was replete with every convenience for the accommodation of their friends.
In the same newspaper it was confirmed that Mr. U. Vasser had been appointed Agent for the sale of Mr. Brown's Fertilizing Manures. The product was produced at the Bone Mills, St. Benedict's, Norwich.

On 24th November 1849 Mr. Vasser announced that in future the house was to be known as the COCK and that his Opening Dinner would be held on Wednesday 28th November.
How this went down with the landlord of the well established existing COCK INN on the High Street remains unknown. How long the name remained on the house is also unknown, but it is not found 1851 or after.

On Saturday 15th March 1851, Mr. John Blake announced that since his Opening Dinner had been advertised, the Assizes had been scheduled to take place on the same date and in consequence many of his friends would be unable to attend the dinner. The Dinner was thus postponed until Wednesday 23rd April 1851. Tickets 10s, including a bottle of wine.

Mr. John Canham announced 9th June 1853 that the New Bowling Green would open on Thursday 16th June.

In July 1853, John Canham advised the lovers of cricket that his New Cricket Ground, adjoining the NEW INN, would hold its inaugural match on Friday 8th July 1853. The match would be played between the Gentlemen of Attleborough and Neighbourhood.
In December 1854, John Canham expressed his most grateful thanks to the Nobility, Gentry, Commercial Gentlemen and the public for their continued and increased support. His Friends had agreed to celebrate his success with an Opening Dinner to be held on the day of the next Attleborough Horse Sale, Thursday 28th December 1854.
Tickets 10s 6d to be had at the Barr of the Inn and at the ROYAL HOTEL, Norwich.

In November 1861 John Canham, having entered upon his tenth year at the Hotel, thanked the Nobility, Gentry and the Public for their past favours and advised that the Hotel had undergone a complete renovation. He would be obliged if Canham's men were asked for at the Station, since they were always in attendance on the arrival of Trains and his Horses in readiness in two minutes.

A Sale by Auction was held at the NEW INN on Monday 1st December 1873. The sale consisted of Brewing Plant, 50 barrel and half-barrel Beer Casks, a One-horse Brougham, and a few lots of Furniture. All were the property of Mr. Leonard Tillott.
