The FALGATE - 26.05.1997

The Commissioners Meeting was held here 17th October 1807.

In April 1820 it was announced that Mr John Frost had taken this well established inn, previously in the occupation of Mr. Chilvers.
However a sales notice  2 months later advises that the property is to be sold by auction 10th June 1820, and is in current occupation of Mr. Chilvers. `Old established Inn with chaise house, stable, yard and garden - Possession given at Michaelmas next.' It appears that Mr. Frost did not arrive at the house until sometime after 1824.

4 November 1820 - FALLGATE INN, Potter Heigham John Frost begs leave to advise the public that he has taken the above old established inn, and humbly hopes, by a strict attention to their comfort and accommodation to merit patronage and support.
