The sale of Robert Millers furniture, upon his retirement, was advertised in the Norwich Mercury of 13th October 1838.

It is claimed that Ralph Summers was the youngest licence holder in England when he took on the licence in 1931. During the period of his WWII service in Africa and Italy the house was run by his wife Edith with assistance from her sisters Ivy and Gracie Loombe. Beer deliveries during the war years were at 10:00 am. and by 10:00pm the same evening the ration of beer would have been drunk dry by American servicemen and Locals. Ralph & Edith left the house for Australia on the 13th February 1971.
