Both William Moore and T. J. Rose were granted new full licences for houses in Opie Street, at the Annual Licensing Session, Tuesday 26th August 1864.
The house of Thomas Rose was said to be on the corner and so appears to be this house. It was commented that the magistrates must have overlooked that there were only two properties existing in the thoroughfare.

Although the houses are not named in the report, Mr. Moore appears to have been at the OPIE HOUSE.

Stood on the NW corner of Castle Meadow and Opie Street.

Given as the QUEEN Public-house May 1866.

The Norfolk Chronicle of 24th August 1895 reported that the licence was renewed in spite of the house being closed for 9 months previously and objection from occupants of local properties.
