In a licence application made by Samuel Jones of the WHITE HORSE on 1st January 1862, it was heard that George Young had been refused a licence for that house, so had taken on this beerhouse.

6 day licence only in registers to 1878. No mention of 6 day restriction thereafter.

On Friday 30th June 1905, in opposition to the licence, Superintendant Basham stated that the population of Upton was 477 and there were three licensed houses, 159 persons per house.. The WHITE HORSE was about 730 yards away and the COCK was only about 230 yards distant. Within a radius of a quarter of a mile there were 27 dwellings with a population of 100, which included children. Situated at Upton Broad, a private property, the Chief Constable did not think the house was frequented by visitors.
In support of the licence it was said that trade largely consisted of luncheons. lodgers, visitors and the refreshments supplied.
90 persons, including the lord of the manor had signed a petition in support of the house.
Licensee John Curtis confirmed that he made more than £1 a week in profit.
The magistrates agreed that the house was required.

Licence surrendered 1934 and removed to Thorpe St Andrew
