Saturday 6th August 1859 - Irish drover Alexander Mc'Kenna was robbed of £96 15 whilst sleeping at the FOX & HOUNDS. Three fellow drovers, Richard Brooks, John Brown and John Smith were suspected of the crime.
They were seen to arrive with Mc'Kenna by landlady Elizabeth Cook, but she did not see then leave the house. On Monday 8th August the three were remanded for trial.

John Cook was called before the magistrates at the Annual Licensing Meeting Tuesday 4th September 1860. It was said that Mr. Beare, one of the magistrates had complained that he had passed the house at twenty five minutes past ten on the morning of Sunday 2nd September 1860 and there was a man sitting on a bench, near the door! Cook was cautioned.

At the Norwich Licensing Session held Friday 24th August 1900 there was objection to licence renewal owing to the rear of the premises sharing access with adjoining cottages and the shared access often being locked, preventing police communication with the back doors. Decision to be considered at another date, at the adjourned session.

Advertised To Let 20th April 1901 - Apply Y,C&Y, Crown Brewery.

At the 1908 Sessions it was reported that the house was difficult for the police to supervise and that there were 13 other licensed houses within 200 yards. The tenant was irregularly employed in the boot trade. A number of rooms were let to lodgers. There had been complaints of singing and shouting carrying on at 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning and it was impossible for the police to tell if the commotion was caused by bona fide loafers or others. The house was frequented by poachers and low class customers.
For the tenant it was said that the best was done to conduct the house properly. The house was largely used as a lodging house, and was of a character a little superior to that of a common lodging house. The tenant said that shelter was often given to `broken down gentlemen' which caused some amusement in the court. He said that he had lived exclusively on the premises for the previous 7 months.
The licence was renewed.

Licence provisionally refused 09.02.1937 and referred to Compensation.
Closed under Compensation 31.12.1937
