The Bury & Norwich Post of Wednesday 18th December 1811 carried the announcement that the premises were to be let from 6th January 1812.
The premises included cottage, or tap-room adjoining; stables, yard, garden, and two inclosures of rich pasture land, containing about 7 Acres - All then in the occupation of Robert Rampling.
24 acres of pasture land could also available to the tenant.
`Exclusive of good road business, the premises command and enjoy the full trade of the weekly corn market, held at Stoke Ferry; also of the merchant's yard opposite, and navigation on the river Wessy, <sic> to Lynn and other places; are well worth the attention of some steady person, and particularly of a butcher, for whom it would be a most desirable situation.'

The premises were then owned by Messrs. C P Herbert & Co, Setch Brewery.
