George Musk applied for a spirit licence at the Petty Sessions held Wednesday 28th August 1867. The application was refused.


Frederick Dent was convicted Wednesday 24th October 1900 of having been drunk in charge of a horse on the 5th October 1900. Mr. Dent said that he had come into town to hear the result of the election and admitted to having a glass or two of beer. He considered he was quite capable of returning home and looking after his cows.
Fined 7/6d with 1s costs, Mr. Dent was reminded that his actions were serious because he was a beerhouse keeper and although the action would not result in his licence being endorsed, if he were addicted to such conduct, then the licensing Justices may refuse him a licence in the future.

Structural alterations and improvements were approved by the magistrates, 12th January 1950.
