* House no. 365 on 1845 Magistrates list

Also listed as the ROSE.

Address 1836 as Coslany Street


Licence refused Tuesday 27th August 1867 but granted on appeal.

The Norfolk Chronicle of 18th February 1911 reported that Inspector Wentford had said that the house was a very old one with only two rooms on the ground floor. The tenant used one of the rooms.
The house held a full licence but the spirit licence had not been taken up for 6 years. Weekly sales were 2 barrels of beer and about 4½ gallons of stout. In spite of the fact that the tenant, Albert Hansell, made a living from the house and that Lacons had given up a house the previous year, without taking Compensation, the Magistrates referred the licence to Compensation.

Licence provisionally refused 13.02.1911 and referred to Compensation.
Closed under Compensation 30.12.1912

House demolished 1913, a fireplace saved and removed to the Castle Museum.


Note :
* The presence of two houses operating at the same period in Oak Street, known as the Rose or Rose Tavern, leads to the possibility of licensees pre 1867 being `transposed'.
