Given as the EXCHANGE HOTEL to 1878
and in the Licence Registers to 1889.

Named the QUEENS HOTEL in directories from 1879 and in the Norfolk Chronicle report of 15th September 1888 :-

Renewal of licence was opposed at the Licensing Sessions Wednesday 20th August 1889.
Holder of the licence was Mr. J. L. Reymond and owners ( then ) were Messrs. Lacon. Mr Raymond had been convicted on the 22nd May 1889 of allowing intoxicants to be consumed on his premises during prohibited hours and ( again ) on the 1st August 1889 for allowing Mr. Shrubsole to play billiards on the public billiards table on the 27th July 1889, in contravention of the provision of the Act.
Mr. Reymond was said to have been of Swiss nationality and had taken on the house from Michaelmas 1888. He had been unfamiliar with Norwich. The previous licensee, Mr. Welch was well known for allowing gambling and Mr. Reymond was not to know of the reputation of the house. There had been an application to transfer the licence to Mr. Ernest Boswell the previous day, and if the licence were to be refused then Mr. Boswell would have to pay for 14 years rent on unlicensed premises. The case was adjourned until the following day when, after much testimony, the licence was refused.
