Included in September 1789 Diss Hundred Register.

For sale by auction Monday 14th September 1812 with Barn, Stables and other necessary outbuildings, blacksmith's shop and several inclosures of most excellent arable and pasture land, by estimation more or less forty acres. With possession from Michaelmas.


Susan Clarke, wife of John Clarke of the Kings Head, Dickleburgh, died Saturday 9th June 1866.

Messrs. Adnams applied to the Magistrates Wednesday 8th March 1911 to do away with the existing cellar and provide extra storage at the rear of the building. Police Superintendant Southgate said that it would not make the premises more difficult to supervise and had no objection to the proposal. Approved.

Police-constable Nightingale visited the house in plain clothes on 11th July 1928 and observed two men in the cellar with licensee Fred Smith. The time was seven minutes past four in the afternoon and the house should have been closed. Half pint glasses of beer were in view but Smith said that none had been drunk, they were a treat for his guests and there was no payment involved. One of the `guests' was a Dickleburgh resident, a retired Colonel by the name of James. He confirmed that no beer had been drunk.
Since there had been no previous complaint against the landlord the magistrates were unwilling to record a conviction and said that would be the case if he paid costs. The others were fined 5/- each, including costs.
