On the night of Thursday 13th June 1850, landlord Robert Ives arrived in Gt. Yarmouth with the intention of catching the Rotterdam Packet. Arriving late and missing the steamer, he went to the ROSE TAVERN and then on to the ELEPHANT & CASTLE seeking lodgings for the night. There were no vacancies available, so accompanied by a girl named Clarke, he was guided to a house of ill-fame, kept by a woman called Harriman. When he awoke in the morning, the girl was still with him, but the £24 in gold and 50s in silver, that he had been carrying, had been taken. Both the girl and the landlady were apprehended by the police.

Local Post Office run from the premises from 1995 until July 2000 when it was stated that ``New Post Office requirements make continuation unviable''.
