The Lynn Advertiser of 28th October 1909 reported an altercation between landlord William Fuller and the previous landlady Ann Wells.

~

It was reported in the Lynn Advertiser of 1st July 1910 that two labourers, James Nobes and Arthur Dix, both of Heacham, were charged with being drunk on licensed premises on 4th June 1910.
Licensee William Fuller was summoned for allowing drunkenness on his premises.
P.C. Barrett had visited the house (then a beerhouse) at 9:30pm and spoke to Fuller, who subsequently ordered the two men out.
Dix staggered out of the house and Nobes wanted to fight. Dix was taken away by his uncle but Nobes used filthy language and threatened to throw the PC into the pond. Nobes was escorted away by his daughter.
Each were fined 12s.

William Fuller had an unblemished record having previously run the Valiant Sailor in Kings Lynn for three and a half years.
There were a lot of roughs in Heacham and Fuller had earlier called the police when Dix and a man called Hart had started quarrelling. They had however departed before the constable arrived. Dix had returned with Nobes at 9:15, Fuller had not noticed either were intoxicated. Dix had drunk ginger beer and Nobes had a glass of beer.
Arthur Groom and John Bobbins were in the house when Dix and Nobes entered and both confirmed that neither staggered or appeared to be drunk.
The Magistrates understood the difficulties that the landlord had to contend with, but could not believe that he could not have seen that at least one of the men was unfit to be served. However, a conviction would not be recorded and the case would be dismissed upon the payment of 7s costs.
