RED LION - CROMER
c1904

RED LION INN 1836.

It was heard Monday 7th February 1910 that the late Mr. Frossender, lessee of the Red Lion, had found himself in difficulties, especially with a big creditor, Messrs. Worthington. Bankruptcy proceedings had been made on 4th December 1909 and adjourned. A further hearing was planned for 16th December, but at about that time the father of the counsel for the petitioning creditor fell down dead in the Strand, which caused further delay. By the time of the proposed rescheduled hearing in January, Mr. Frossener had taken his own life.
Since the creditors did not seek to wind up the estate, an agreement was made with the owner, John Smith, who said he would put in a manager as soon as the necessary formalities were carried out.
Licence not renewed, pending a new application to appear before them.


Mr. Reilly Mead was summoned on 5th January 1914 of having an unjust glass in his possession and having the same unstamped. On that day Inspector Robinson had sent his assistant, John Youngs, to purchase a pint of beer. It was served in an unjust and unstamped measure. On saying that he (Inspector Robinson) should seize the glass, Mr. Meade sent for the police and said that he would not allow Robinson to thieve the glass. Upon the police advising that the Inspector had authority to act, Mr. Meade said that they had never sold pints OR half pints since he had been at the place. Miss Gow, the barmaid confirmed that she had refused to sell a pint to Youngs and said that he could have `a large glass'. When tested the glass was found to be deficient from a pint by 5 per cent. The Bench convicted and imposed a fine and costs totalling £3/0/6d
