Freehold owned by the Trustees of the Great Hospital.

One of the smallest public houses in Norwich.

Public area said to be some 50 square foot.

On Tuesday 9th August 1859, James Puxley was charged with having his house open at illegal hours. Police Sergeant Smith had visited the house at a quarter past 11 o'clock on the previous Sunday morning and saw two men in the tap-room, a jug on the table and two glasses containing beer. The landlord claimed the beer was for a lodger who always took beer for breakfast and never drank tea or coffee. Advised that he was only allowed to serve travellers during restricted hours, Puxley said he had never heard of that law and he was sure that it was broken every Sunday by the ROYAL HOTEL and the NORFOLK HOTEL.  The Chief Constable said that if he heard of such breaking of the law then he would take action, no matter who they were. Mr. Puxley said "Well, if it's the law, it ain't justice".
Under the circumstances a minimal fine of 1s plus 11s 6d expenses was inflicted along with a warning not to serve beer for breakfast on a Sunday.


Closed under Bullards 30.09.1966.

Demolished.
