At the Long Stratton Brewster Session held Tuesday 14th February 1906 the decision to renew the licence was deferred to the Session to be held in two weeks time.

At the Brewster Sessions held at Long Stratton on Tuesday 26th February 1906, it was heard that the licence had been objected to at the previous Session.
It was reported that in 1891 there was a population of 884 and by 1901 it had decreased to 754. With seven licensed houses in the parish, there was one licensed house to every 108 persons. The nearest house was 133 yards away.
The owners, Youngs and Crawshay had another house in the parish, only one mile away. There was not the slightest complaint against the house and trade was 71 barrels a year.
The Superintendant thought the house unnecessary whilst the owners said they would be pleased to make any alterations for police supervision, if the Justices thought it necessary.

The magistrates decided to refer the final decision on the licence to the Quarter Sessions.

Licence not renewed at the Annual Licensing meeting held Tuesday 12th February 1907.
( Same fate awaited the TWO FRIENDS )
