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.

On Wednesday 14th October 1874 Harold Cooke was summoned for selling out of hours, since on 9th October, Sergeant Buckle had discovered three men and a woman drinking in the house at 11:40pm.
Cooke claimed that the drinks were his treat to two of the men since they had returned from Drayton with him and they had paid the fare.
The Chairman said Cooke had rendered himself to a heavy penalty, but in this case the fine would be 2s 6d and the costs 20s 6d.
Abraham Cannell and Walter Stangroom, two of the men present in the house were then fined for being in the house after closing time, Cannell was fined 10s and 17s 6d costs and Stangroom £1 and 17s 6d costs.

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 '
