At the Annual Licensing Sessions held Monday 23rd August 1858 it was heard that Thomas Warnes had twice been convicted of of drawing beer at illegal hours on a Sunday. Mrs Warnes advised the bench that neither a wine or spirit licence had been taken out. The licence renewal was refused.
On Wednesday 20th October an appeal was made on behalf of Thomas Warnes for the decision made at the previous sessions to be reversed. The appeal was dismissed on the grounds of previous convictions and the fact that although a full licence had been previously awarded, a spirit licence had not been taken out.

The house gained a new licence at the Annual Licensing Session held Tuesday 4th September 1860.

The Chief Constable objected to licence renewal at the 1906 Sessions.
The house was described as being very old and registered as a common lodging house with 16 beds. The rooms were not separated from the public house and the police could not properly supervise. There were 15 other licensed houses within 200 yards.
Licence provisionally refused 07.02.1906 and referred to Compensation.
Closed under Compensation 23.08.1907.
