The Nags Head - 1990
1990

Originally sited at 33 Crown Road with address also as Castle Meadow.

Robert Baxter applied for a full licence Tuesday 27th August 1867 - Refused

On Tuesday 25th August 1868 it was heard that there had been no complaint against Mr. Baxter and the magistrates granted a (full) licence.
Location then given as almost adjoining the COCK.
It appears that this licence was soon lost since Mr. Baxter applied again Tuesday 23rd August 1870.
It was said that he had kept the place as a beerhouse for four years without any complaint. A memorial had been signed by farmers and dealers who used the house on Saturdays, urging the request. The bench refused the application.

Part of Lot No. 26 (of 27) in a sale of properties held Tuesday 14th November 1871, following the bankruptcy of Messrs. Harvey & Hudson. Then in occupation of Mr. Baxter, undertenant of Messrs. Bullard and Sons, as yearly tenants - £30 per annum rent.

 Address as 33 Castle Meadow 1888 & 1896 .
Relocated at King Street by 1900

Licence from the TWO BREWERS, Maddermarket removed to this house following Magistrates meeting of 10th August 1873.
Licence upgraded from Beerhouse to Full.

Held an early morning licence (as renewal granted August 1897) for the benefit of the employees at the nearby Post Office.
