On Thursday 7th July 1870 a group of labouring men entered the house at about seven o'clock in the morning. By eleven o'clock they had consumed three pints of raw brandy.
Whilst they were carousing, William Goat, on old man with a wooden leg, passed by and they called him in. Mr. Goat was then treated to three measures of brandy, the first being about one gill, which he drank in three draughts. At about eleven o'clock he sat down and rested his head in his hand. It was soon after this that he was found to be dead. At the inquest the following day it was said that the brandy had hastened his death, but cause was the result of acute bronchitis and serious congestion of the lungs.
The Jury wished the Coroner to caution the landlord against permitting people to drink raw spirits at such an early hour and in such immoderate quantities.
(Unfortunately the landlord is not named in the report)


Address also as Downham Street.
