A house named the WHITE ROSE TAVERN is listed in 1864 at St. Margarets Church Alley.

Location given as Upper Westwick Street in 1842 and as at Lower Westwick Street in 1890.

Full licence refused Tuesday 25th August 1868 for Alfred Beckett.

Licence removed 21.08.1888 to a new house built adjoining and situate at the corner of St. Margaret's Plain.

The Norfolk Chronicle of 31.08.1901 reported that at the Licensing Sessions on the previous Tuesday an application had been made for continuance of the 5:00am early opening licence. This being for the benefit of the employees of the `Daily Press' and those in service with the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway. Objections were raised that the house was some distance from both sites mentioned and other (licensed) houses were closer.
Mr. Geoffrey Barnard observed that the early opening privilege had been held for many years and and the house was well known.
The Chairman noted that other houses had not applied for the extension and so the application was granted.

At the 1908 Sessions Inspector Windsor advised the Bench that there were 15 other public houses within 200 yards and the licence was not required. The house consisted of a large bar with club room above. The main objection was the enclosed yard behind the premises into which the back doors of adjoining houses opened.

Licence provisionally refused 05.02.1908 and referred to Compensation.
House closed under compensation 01.09.1908.
