Robert Woods appeared before the Court of Insolvent Debtors 14th March 1833. He was described as formerly of the parish of St. Michael at Coslany, Publican; then of Lakenham, Publican and Tailor; afterwards of Lakenham, out of business; then of the parish of St. Martin at Palace, Publican and Coal Dealer; afterwards in the parish of St. Gregory, out of business and then late of Sprowston, out of business.
(Unfortunately of the three public houses, he has only been identified at this one.)

On Tuesday 18th March 1856, Barzilla Drake was fined 1s and costs for having his house open, the previous Sunday, at 11:00am.
Sergeant Smith had discovered six persons in the tap-room and a quart of beer on the table. The claim that three of the persons were lodgers and the others travellers, was rejected.

At the Annual Licensing Meeting held Monday 23rd August 1858, it was revealed that Barzelia Drake had previously been fined 20s, and costs, for having his house open at illegal hours on a Sunday.
<This appears to be a different offence to that occurring in 1856> The bench agreed that this single conviction should not prevent renewal of licence especially as the house had been subsequently well conducted.

Described 1858 as having a full licence, but not taking up the spirit licence.

Full licence granted Tuesday 25th August 1868 to Daniel Read.

House closed under 1938 slum clearance order.
Licence and licensee transferred to new house at Sprowston, the DUKE OF NORFOLK, which opened 01.01.1940.
(Special removal granted 02.01.1940)

(House not sold until 1952)
