  On Monday 8th December 1902, Samuel Howard was accused under the Food and Drugs Act of selling ¾ pint of gin, not of the legal strength required, for the sum of 1s 6d, on 29th October.
Mr. Howard advised that the required notice regarding diluted spirits was on display in the bar. The bulk gin purchased by him had been tested and found to be 17 under proof and the diluted gin sold would have been 25 under proof, which was within the limit (for diluted spirits).
Case dismissed.

One of only 18 Norfolk public houses recommended by the Egon Ronay pub guide of 1969.
` Unassuming, busy and well kept'.
