Licensee Henry Clark was recorded as an Insolvent Debtor, February 1832. His occupation given as late Tailor and Publican, and licensed to Let Horses and Gigs.

Said to have been rebuilt in 1923.

As the representative of the Watton and District Licensed Victuallers' Association, Edward Lovewell applied to the magistrates on Friday 10th March 1939, for an extension, for all Watton Houses, from 10 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. during June , July, August and September.
With the light evenings, men were busy working in their gardens, allotments, haysel <sic> and corn harvests. Such extensions had been granted in 21 divisions and boroughs in Norfolk.
The local churches all opposed the proposal and said that if civilians wanted a late drink they could take home a bottle. The existence of an aerodrome within the area was a definite reason for being against the application.
Application refused.


Landlord Henry Jordan kept a gander instead of a guard dog.
On one occasion it chased a local policeman down the High Street.

 
30 seater restaurant opened 5th April 1984 by Brian & Sally Worby.
