Address as 23 William Street in 1861 and as William Street in 1859 and 1865.

Mrs Sarah Daws was a witness in a case relating to unpaid drapery goods Saturday 25th January 1866. During her evidence she said that in 1860 she lived in William Street, in the same house as she was living 1866. In the 1860's she and her husband had run the PERSEVERANCE. This possibly explains the William Street address 1859 to 1865 since it would be the mailing address rather that the beerhouse location.

Mr. Robert Emms was described as an industrious and honest man when his licence application was heard Tuesday 29th August 1865.
The application was opposed by a Mr. Crosbie who said there were already six other houses within 200 yards.
The licence was granted.

Property sold to Mr Zipfel by Robert and Susanna Emms as indenture dated 20th October 1868.
Barnard Zipfel and Harry Winter sold the premises to Harry & Charles Bullard for the sum of £750 as indenture dated 3rd May 1872

William Hinsby applied, on Monday 24th August 1891, for a music and singing licence for the club-room in which members of a club used once a week. There was a separate entrance to the room. Licence granted.

At the Norwich Licensing Session held Friday 24th August 1900 there was objection to licence renewal owing to the rear of the premises sharing access with adjoining cottages and the shared access often being locked, preventing police communication with the back doors. Decision to be considered at another date, at the adjourned session.

Damaged by enemy action 27/29.04.1942.




Closed and boarded up mid April 2015.

Destined to re-open as a Function Bar for Hire.........
