According to the report published in the Eastern Daily Press of 21st September 1876, John Chilvers pleaded guilty of allowing intoxicating liquors to be sold on his premises at illegal hours.
At 4 o'clock on the previous Sunday afternoon, Police constable Scarff had heard noises and the rattle of coin as if persons were inside tossing for money. Entering from the back, the constable saw Mrs Chilvers putting a half gallon of beer and a glass behind some barrels in the cellar.  Four of five men had then escaped past the constable but the names of two who remained behind were taken, but one of those names proved to be false. The newspaper report gives the fine as One Guinea plus 18/6d costs, however the licence registers record a fine of £1 plus costs of 18/6d
The licence was not endorsed.
