As the SAXLINGHAM STORES 1871
Listed as a Beerhouse 17th March 1888, the property of John Youngs the Elder, previously known as the FARMERS BEERSHOP.
Also referenced as the JOLLY FARMERS (1861) and in 1897, as the FARMERS.


At the Licensing Sessions Friday 9th February 1906 the Bench noted the objection to renewal of licence at the Swainsthorpe Sessions.
The house being the property of Youngs & Crawshay. The police objected on the basis that the house was combined with a shop, giving `increased facilities for drinking'. Upon hearing that there were 5 other houses in the Street, and an undertaking from the Brewer to close off access from the shop, the licence was provisionally granted and referred to the Quarter Sessions for `that Court to decide'.
At the hearing, tenant Walter Gosling claimed that he had been in possession of the Stores for 7 years (from 1899?) and his trade was equal to any other house in the parish.

At the Kings Lynn Compensation Authority Meeting on Tuesday 9th July 1907, licence renewal was opposed on the grounds of redundancy and because a grocer's and butchers business business was carried on in the same premises. Also that the landlord and landlady were often absent because they were out hawking. There was a lack of accommodation and no garden. Pigs were slaughtered on the premises between the shop door and the kitchen.
For the brewers it was said that the pig killing could be done elsewhere and the toilet accommodation could be improved. This was the oldest licensed house in the parish and the average trade for the past three years was 83 barrels per year. This was the only Youngs, Crawshay & Youngs house in the village.
Licence not renewed
