Thomas Sleath (36) was found guilty Monday 8th January 1866 of obtaining money by false pretences from licensee Hannah Catton. He had offered a sovereign to pay for ale but in the course of change being handed over had swapped the coin for an imitation. A ploy that he and his companions had used at the OXFORD TAVERN and the RED LION.

On the evening of Saturday 24th August 1872, police constable James Marsh observed one customer being served beer at thirty minutes past eleven and at five minutes before midnight, some twenty persons left the house. Licensee George Frost said that he had kept the house open in order to sell tickets for an Excursion to London by the Foresters. He thought that the Bench would not convict under such circumstances.
The Bench replied that they merely administered the Law and issued a fine of 20s and costs of 7s, but did not endorse the licence.

In Whites 1890 directory Mary Greenfield is given at the White Horse under the Public Houses section, but at the White Rose under the Residential section.

Property conveyed in 1890 from the ownership of William Forster of Blickling and John Rout of Norwich to Coleman's Brewery of Queen Street, Norwich and to Edward Baldwin (Merchant Tailor of Norwich).
property described as adjoining the ROYAL HOTEL. The occupant at the time seems to have been a Mr. Driver.
The conveyance stated that the term is for the residue of 2 terms of 1000 years. The first term created 20th March 1800 and the second 25th March 1806.

At the Norwich Licensing Session held Friday 24th August 1900 it was heard that the house had been rebuilt some three feet back from its original position and had been renamed the ARCADE STORES. The frontage had been altered and there was nothing to indicate that it was the old White Rose.
The magistrates had been presented with plans on transfer day and they were taken as final, they now had no proof that the plans were ever complied with. Mr. Wild, who appeared for Messrs. Bullard & Sons, assured the Bench that the plans had been adhered to and that the new house covered a smaller area than the old one. It was confirmed that only the odd wall of the old house remained and that the site slightly overlapped that of the former ROYAL HOTEL TAP.

Note: In 1824 Mr. R. Algar is here at the ROSE TAVERN and also at the VAULTS, St. Stephen. He has London Porter and sales of, per doz, Madeira, Sherry, Champagne, Claret, Sauterne etc etc, also, by the Gallon, spirits including Brandy, Geneva, Rum, shrub and peppermint, plus bottled beers and cider.
