Given as the WOOL POCKET in August 1782.

The house was engaged for Freeholders, the Friends of Sir Edward Astley, Bart. and Thomas William Coke, Esq. on Wednesday 14th April 1784, being the Day of Election. (One of 53 such houses in Norwich)

Licence refused at the Sessions held Thursday 2nd September 1852. The woman who kept the house, Hannah Howlett, did not appear and the police book was shown to have an entry charging her of not keeping a respectable house.


Frederick Lowe, a disreputable looking man, was charged Wednesday 4th April 1866 of stealing three coats, a cape, a scarf and several other articles from the WOOLPACK, the house of B. Mackely.
Remanded to later Sessions.


Became the Woolpack Cafe by 1883.
