On Sunday 27th March 1864, Police-constable Borley observed a boy named Atkins leaving the house with a jug of beer, at a quarter past twelve. Before the magistrates on Saturday 30th April Matsell said that his clock was wrong and he thought it was twenty-five minutes to one. He was found guilty of drawing beer during the hours of divine service and was fined 2s 6d and 12s 6d costs.

On Saturday 29th August 1874 owner and occupier John Ellis applied for a spirit licence. The Chairman and Major Holloway, a member of the Bench, agreed that they could not entertain such a request since other beerhouses would expect the same favour.
A similar request by Charles Woodgett of the BEEHIVE met the same refusal.

Became barbers shop following closure.
Later Harmony Cottage.
