The Norfolk Chronicle of 18th February 1911 reported that Inspector Wentford made objection to the licence on the grounds that the house was not needed. There were 10 other licensed houses within short distance, one of which was only 5 yards away. The tenant of some 11 years was cause of no complaint, but had other employment and sales were only about 1½ barrels a week.

The house was referred to Compensation 13.02.1911
and closed under Compensation 30.12.1912.

BUT

The licence of the *STAFF OF LIFE
was transferred to the BALLOON 26.01.1914
as was the name COLCHESTER ARMS.
The address had consequently changed from 79 to 62 Lower Westwick Street.

Licence provisionally refused 05.02.1924 and referred to compensation.
House closed under Compensation 20.12.1924.

 

* Possibly an earlier name for the COLCHESTER ARMS, since other houses known by the name STAFF OF LIFE had either long closed ( S&P houses ), or remained in business ( the one known Bullards house ).
