On Monday 4th September 1899, Messrs. Youngs & Crawshay applied for a full licence for a property close to the Railway Station that could provide for 20 horses and carts and be the only house offering accommodation near the Station. They were prepared to give up the licence of the WHITE HORSE. The Bench agreed that there was a need for stable accommodation nearer the Station but did not see the need for more drinking accommodation. They did not consider giving up a single licence a suitable concession and gave the applicants two weeks to make an additional offer.

On Monday 18th September 1899, Messrs. Youngs & Crawshay offered to relinquish the licence of the East Harling CROWN and that of the WHITE HORSE at Attleborough, in exchange for a licence for a new house near Attleborough Station, to be called the STATION HOTEL. The magistrates required a third house to be included in the exchange, the CASTLE beerhouse, Attleborough. The applicants respectfully declined to give up three houses.
(They claimed to have only had three houses in Attleborough at the time)

On Friday 29th September 1899, at the Petty Sessions, Youngs, Crawshay & Youngs again applied for a licence for the new house. Those opposed raised a point of law, submitting that the case had been closed at the last Sessions when the application was refused. Furthermore Notices had not been posted and the Act of Parliament had not been complied with. The Chairman pointed out that the plans had been approved at the last meeting and it was only the requirement for three licenses to be given up, that had delayed the procedure. The Brewers agreed to close the three houses on 11th October 1900. The licence for the Station Hotel was granted.

However on Friday 6th October 1899 the matter was again raised before the magistrates since the appropriate notices had not been presented at the previous meeting. The Chairman said that the objection raised was a technical one and since the brewers were prepared to surrender three licenses, the licence for the Station Hotel was formerly granted.

At the Licensing Sessions Monday 3rd September 1900, Messrs. Youngs, Crawshay & Youngs applied for a new licence for the newly built house. With a covered shed for sixteen traps, room for ten others outside and stable room for twenty-six horses, it would be an asset to the Station. A room in the house was available for the accommodation of ladies waiting at the station.
Messrs. Bullards who had opposed the new licence, said that if the conditions were adhered to, they would not offer serious objection.
The licence was granted upon the condition that the licenses of all three houses, mentioned the previous year, be relinquished. Mr. Self was named as the ingoing licensee.



The house today stands as a private dwelling some distance north of the site of the Old Railway Tavern, separated by the railway line.

The house was reported at the First Joint Committee Meeting of Bullards and S&P, 29.05.1962, as having closed after April 1961.
