Part of the estate of brewer Thomas Foyson, who died prior to March 1832. House to be sold by auction Tuesday 24th September 1833 Lot No 7 of 8.

The licensee of this house was one of seven who were fined during early October 1853, for allowing drunkenness in their house or for selling at improper hours. The editorial commenting on the enforcement of law thought it would have been better if the clamp-down had commenced with the landlords of houses of a higher class.

  The Norwich Pub Survey of 1986, compiled by the Norwich Society, in association with Norwich City Council, assessed the house:-
