At the Petty Sessions Monday 19th September 1864, it was heard that George Claxton had been observed sitting on the bottom of his cart, apparently the worse for drink, and driving at more that twelve miles per hour. In his defence he said that he had a restive horse and he could not hold it. On paying £1 5s in costs and expenses, the case was dismissed.

Licence referred at Watton licensing session held 2nd February 1910. - but renewed at Petty Sessions held Wednesday 4th March 1910.

Steward & Patteson report, prepared for Watney Mann June 1969 recommended immediate closure. It was reported that the house was `Off main street and hard to find.....Toilet accommodation dreadful and Sanitary Notice had been received from Local Authority'.
