At the Long Stratton Brewster Session held Tuesday 14th February 1906 the decision to renew the licence was deferred to the Session to be held in two weeks time.

At the Brewster Sessions held at Long Stratton on Tuesday 26th February 1906, it was heard that the licence had been objected to at the previous Session. With a population of 423 in 1891 and only 368 in 1901 and four licensed houses in the parish, there was one house to every 92 of the residents. The nearest licensed house was 403 yards away.
There were no complaints against the house and it did a good trade in cider, made on the premises. Over 400 gallons were sold in a year.

The magistrates decided to refer the final decision on the licence to the Quarter Sessions.

Licence not renewed at the Annual Licensing meeting held Tuesday 12th February 1907.

It was advised to the magistrates that the license would expire on 27th February 1907.
