 Lot no 37 in sale by auction 14th to 17th September 1841 of the Coltishall Brewery.
Copyhold sold to Sir E. Lacon & Co. for the sum of £300.

Not found in directories after 1904.

On 11th February 1905, it was said that notice would be given to the licence holder, that the licence would not be renewed, on the grounds of redundancy. By 14th March 1905, the notice had been served but a decision on the matter was postponed to a later date.
On Friday 30th June 1905 the Norfolk Compensation Authority again considered the future of the house. It was heard that it had been selected since police supervision was more difficult than at the other Ludham houses. It was a very old house with only one entrance. It occupied one corner of the cross-roads with the **KING'S ARMS and the BAKER'S ARMS. It was argued that the licence was required since a considerable amount of traffic, of the pleasure character, was catered for. In the previous year, 136 persons from Norwich had visited the house.
Messrs. Lacons said that brewers had owned the house since 1828 and only three occupants had been there since 1858. (Newton, Wilgress and Slaughter). Proving that the business was viable. If the licence was lost the spirit trade would go to the **KING'S ARMS.
Mrs. Slaughter said that she took in lodgers, one of whom was a clergyman who made regular visits. With general trade, lodgings, luncheons and teas, the tenant made a good living.
The Committee agreed that the licence could be renewed.


However ... Licence renewal refused Tuesday 13th February 1906 and subject to arguments to be heard at the next Sessions. Refusal of licence confirmed at the Licensing Sessions held Thursday 21st June 1906

**news report says QUEEN'S ARMS, but this is apparently mistaken.
