New (full) licence awarded to Thomas Gooch Tuesday 5th September 1865.

The case of Joseph Last was heard by the Home Secretary in the House of Commons on the night of Thursday 19th April 1900. Mr. Last was a Reservist and had been called up to serve in South Africa. As a result, his wife Eliza was forced to pay for the licence to be transferred to her name, at a cost of 19s 6d, a sum she could ill afford to pay.
The question was if the temporary absence of a soldier, serving his country, necessitated a licence transfer by law; also whether steps could be taken to prevent similar inflictions upon the families of Reserve men in future.
Sir Matthew White Ridley understood that Mr. Last had been required by the owners of the property to transfer the licence. This had been done before he had left home and he had not made a plea for remission of fees on the grounds of poverty.
The magistrates would perhaps have considered such an application and it did not seem necessary to alter any legislation that required the licence to be held by the real resident holder and occupier of the premises.

There was no objection to structural alterations being carried out following inspection of the plans at the East Harling Brewster Sessions held Monday 13th February 1906.

Closure recommended at the First Joint Committee Meeting of Bullards and Steward & Patteson 29.05.1962.
Sales reported as 63 barrels.

The tenant said to have been in the house for 11 years and to be aged 65 years.
