Recorded in Register of Blofield, Taverham & Walsham Hundred licensed houses taken 9th September 1789.

Before the magistrates on Saturday 7th January 1843, parish constable John Wade and another constable named Ribbons, stated that the house had been found to be open contrary to the tenor of the licence, during the hours of Divine Service, on Sunday 25th December 1842.
Having gone to Church at about 10 o'clock constable Ribbons had sung the Christmas hymn at the commencement of the service. He had then left and immediately went to the DOG where he had earlier seen people loitering. Inside he found several local people and there were glasses of porter visible.
He did not know if other local houses had customers on Christmas Day and it was said that the constable had previously shown malice towards Mrs Fox  and had threatened to `do her business'. Mrs Fox said that she had been at the house for 20 years and never been summoned before.
For the defence it was said that it was strange that constable Ribbons should `come bolting from the church, to that particular house, passing all the others.'
Fined only 5s and expenses, Mrs. Fox was warned that she must be more careful in future, for a second offence would merit a considerable fine.
 In court it was confirmed that the Act of Parliament did not limit the time of keeping open licensed public houses, but beer-shops were required to be closed at half-past ten o'clock at night.

Publican Henry Chubbock was accused Tuesday 22nd January 1859 of an indecent assault on Susannah, the wife of labourer Philip Barney.
The offence said to have been conducted on the previous Monday night. The statements made by Mrs. Barney were said to be so conflicting that magistrate the Reverend W. A. W. Keppel said he did not believe one word she had said.

Chubbock was again before the magistrates accused of having assaulted Mary, wife of labourer Robert Broom on Tuesday 4th July 1859. Mr. Chubbock had endeavoured to eject Mrs. Broom from his house following a dispute about a mug ( which had been in the house for at least three years ), which she claimed as her property. It was admitted that Mrs. Broom may have sustained a slight injury in consequence of a fall, but the accusation of assault was denied.
The Magistrates sitting Saturday 9th July 1859 found the charge not proven and each party were to share the costs.

Sales in 1960 were :-
Beer 33 barrels
Spirits 33

Closure of either this house or the CROWN proposed at the First joint Committee Meeting of Bullards and Steward & Patteson 29th May 1962. Not agreed.
