Application made 22nd August 1891 for a music, singing and dancing licence. Only required for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
It was reported by the Chief Constable that the owners had been acquainted with complaints against the house and that they had done their best to rectify the matter by finding a new tenant. It was however only February 1891 that he had to write to the Commanding Officer of the garrison for the assistance of the military to protect the public from violence arising from rows outside the Farriers Arms.
Application Refused.

Licence dropped 21.08.1895 in agreement with the Licensing Justices on grant of a new licence to Jonas Lake.
(The licenses of the VICTORIA and the VILLA GARDENS were also traded in exchange for a new licence at the BRANFORD STORES)
