Licensee R. Plumstead was cautioned by the magistrates at the sessions held ** 7th September 1847, following complaints about the disorderly conduct of the house.

At the sessions held 19th August 1862 the licensee was one of many who were reprimanded for omitting to assist the police, were in the habit of allowing prostitutes to assemble or conducted themselves in a manner that, although they had not been summoned or fined, yet were considered by the magistrates to be improper persons to be entrusted with licenses.
(Martha Seaman was admonished for allowing prostitutes to assemble at her house but licence was renewed.)

 John Wicks applied, on Monday 24th August 1891, for a music and singing licence for the local bird show club, the member of which met once a week at the house. Granted.

The house was described at the 1906 Licensing Sessions as being an old house with an interior construction that made it difficult to supervise.
There were said to be 16 other licensed houses within a radius of 200 yards.

Licence provisionally refused Wednesday 7th February 1906

Closed by Compensation and sold July 1907

Demolished 1967



** One sessions report gives the date of sitting as Tuesday 7th September, but a second report gives Wednesday 8th September 1847.
