Lynne Noon advises July 2013 - Boswell Oxtoby held the licence from 1928, but lived elsewhere. Lillian and Edward Youkitanie actually lived on the premises and probably acted as managers.

Does anybody have further information?
 


STEWARD & PATTESON (note - this was a Bullards house) report prepared for WATNEY MANN (East Anglia) Ltd, June 1969 recommended Immediate closure.
The report stated that the structure and roof were in poor condition.

The house actually closed on either the 3rd or 5th April 1971, depending upon which Bullard record is studied. The reason given for closure was that the landlady suffered a heart attack.

70 barrels of beer, plus 44 (barrels) of bottled beer, sold in final year of trading.
