At the licensing session, Friday 9th February 1906, the Chairman remarked that the licensee, John Borrett, did not reside at the house and no licence could be granted, except to the permanent resident. Although M. Borrett said that he was mostly at the house, the representative of the owners advised that steps were being made to transfer the licence to Mr. Borrett's son, Arthur.
Decision to grant licence deferred to the next sitting.

Licence not renewed at the Annual Licensing Sessions Friday 7th February 1930 on the grounds of redundancy.

On Friday 21st February 1930 It was recorded that the house was a very one, in a bad state of repair and had no water supply.
Rateable value £11.
Messrs. Lacon agreed there was a redundancy in Alburgh and offered no objection to closure. They did however add that the King's Head was probably the best house in Alburgh.

Reported February 1931 as closed.
