On Tuesday 9th August 1859, Henry James was fined 20s plus expenses for being open at illegal hours. On the previous Sunday Police-constable Mansell had visited the house at twenty minutes past 11 o'clock in the morning. Seeing three men go to the skittle ground, he followed them and discovered three more men and a jug and glasses under a bench. Before he could inspect the contents of the jug, James succeeded in tipping it over. There was however, sufficient left in the jug to confirm it was beer.
James claimed he had drawn the beer for travellers.
