For Sale by Auction Thursday 28th June 1860 with possession from Michaelmas. Sale at the instruction of the proprietor owing to his retirement from the trade. The house being in the same family for nearly 60 years and offered an extensive Beer Trade, beside a large Wine and Spirit Business, which with the adjoining Brewery presented a highly remunerative opportunity.

Robert Mallows announced 13th October 1860 that he had taken the Inn.

Offered To Let July 1863 with Occupation on or before Michaelmas 1863. With compact Brewery and situated within seven miles of a Railway Station.
"None need apply who are not well adapted to conduct the same."

On Monday 25th August 1873, Cornelius Reeve was charged by Police-constable Smith of being on 8th August, drunk in his own premises.
It was argued that since the said offence had taken place after the house had really closed, the house had ceased to be a public-house and so, to all intents and purposes, it was Mr. Reeve's own house, indeed an `Englishman's castle' and he was entitled to do as he pleased and drink as much as he liked. The case was dismissed, but hoped that there would be no similar complaint.
