Robert Bacon was charged by Sergeant Hayward of selling beer at 8:15am on Sunday 3rd June 1866. Bacon claimed that the man found drinking beer from a half-pint pot was a traveller going from Costessey to the station to take a train to Yarmouth. Unable to substantiate that defence he was fined 1s and 11s costs.

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.
