The CELLAR HOUSE GARDENS in S&P records, and previously known as the DUKE OF YORK.
Location given in 1845 as `Opposite the Brewery '.

On Sunday 17th August 1856 Chief Constable English entered the house at 11:00am. Inside he found 5 men and one pint of beer. On Wednesday 20th August Mr. Pigg explained to the magistrates that 4 of the persons were gardeners, hired by him and were merely resting. The 5th person, Mr. Hall, lived in Old Catton and was a traveller, who had stopped for a pint of beer for himself and one for his pony.
The magistrates concluded that Hall was not a legitimate traveller under the meaning of the Act.
Mr. Pigg was cautioned and ordered to pay costs.

William Ord appeared in court Saturday 2nd December 1865 with liabilities under £90 and his ( order of discharge from ) bankruptcy case was opposed.
House then described as a beerhouse.
William Ord, bankrupt, applied for an order of discharge Saturday 25th January 1866. Described as a licensed victualler ( pauper), his debts were £86 15s 6d and assets £12 7s 8d. His application was opposed.

Licence removed to the GROVE, Earlham 10th May 1938.

The house was demolished `due to road widening' according to one S&P record, but another says that the site `is now in S&P garage '
