Licence referred at Watton licensing session held 2nd February 1910 and referred.

At the Adjourned Licensing Sessions, Wednesday 2nd March 1910, Superintendant Powell revealed that there was one licensed house for every 93 of the population of Watton. The JOLLY FARMERS was nearer the town and provided better accommodation, providing meals and taking in lodgers. The tenant, Mr. Sharman, tenant for seven years, also carried on a butcher's business. There were no lodgers and none would be taken, however waggoners and others were accustomed to call there for bread and cheese and other refreshments, also the house catered for cyclist parties.
Average beer sales for the previous three years was 72 barrels a year.
The Bench observed that, without the butcher's business, there would be no living to be made.
Licence referred to the Quarter Sessions.
