Licence referred to the county licensing authority at Adjourned Licensing Session held Monday 8th March 1909 in Downham Market.
The house was said to hold a 6 day licence.
Downstairs there was one living room, a bar, a tap room and a cellar.
Outside there was a back-yard, stables and an open cart-shed.
The premises were in a very bad state of repair.
There were 2 other public houses within 100 yards.
Superintendant Sands agreed with the Magistrates' clerk  that this was the least useful of the three.
The White Hart was three-quarters of a mile from the Watlington Railway Tavern.
For the 1,719 acres within the parish there were six licenses, 5 public houses and one grocer's licence. The population was 580, so that was one licence for every 97 inhabitants. Superintendant Sands agreed that the house was unnecessary for the neighbourhood.
Owner Mr. Trantor said that Hogge & Seppings were yearly tenants and he was quite willing for the licence to be referred.
