At the Petty Sessions held in Harleston on Friday 14th February 1907 it was heard that customer James Ringer of Starston was charged with stealing £1 from the Bar during the evening of 1st February 1907. Eventually it was accepted that the money had been taken in error and Ringer was bound over for six months and ordered to pay costs of £1/1s.

Licence referred at the Adjourned Licensing meeting held Friday  26th February 1909. It was said that the Two Brewers and Duke William were within 100 yards, The Queens Arms and Cardinals Hat were within 200 yards and the Swan, Railway Tavern, Hope and Green Dragon were within 300 yards. The customers were mainly working men whilst the women customers were above average. The accommodation was up to average but there was none for women. There was no provision for supplying eatables and no accommodation for horses or carriages.
