At the Docking Brewster Sessions, held Monday 31st August 1885, Mr. Gant was warned that he must not keep his house open after the regulation time. In reply, Mr. Gant said that he had only served those who had just arrived by train and were legitimate travellers. Superintendant Ward claimed that some were local inhabitants. Mr. Gant then turned to Police-constable Baldwin and asked why the theft of some hay had not been solved and accused the constable of being within a different house. In order that evidence could be gathered, the licence renewal would be deferred for one month.

Location as Southgate in 1871.
