At the Annual Licensing Session held Monday 23rd August 1858 it was heard that James Fox held a full licence for the house but did not take out a spirit licence. This was said to be a system, adopted by some 180 licensees throughout the city, to enjoy the benefits of a full licence, but by not taking out a wine or spirit licence, gaining a licence to sell beer at half the price that the owner of a beerhouse would have to pay.
Licence renewal granted, after much discussion.
