Said to have originally been cottages dating back to the mid 1600's.

Robert Linstead was granted a new full licence at the Annual Licensing Session, Tuesday 30th August 1864

First found as licensed premises in 1864.

Edward Yallop applied, on Monday 24th August 1891, for a music and singing licence for the club-room in which two bird show clubs and a fishing club met. Although the entrance to the club-room was through the bar, it was stated that the public were not allowed entrance into the room and the licence was granted.


At the Norwich Licensing Session held Friday 24th August 1900 there was objection to licence renewal owing to the rear of the premises sharing access with adjoining cottages and the shared access often being locked, preventing police communication with the back doors. Decision to be considered at another date, at the adjourned session.

As reported 4th May 1974 - Norwich City Council sought approval from the Department of the Environment to demolish the Golden Star "For the greater good of Norwich-over-Wensum" in order to allow widening of Duke Street and the link to the inner loop road. The Planning Committee chairman and the planning officer stressed that they took no pleasure in recommending that this partly 15th century building be demolished, but it had to go. The plan was supported by Mr. L. A. Stevenson who said that the traffic plan was intended to protect the whole of Norwich and the ancient buildings within. The price was the demolition of the odd building here and there to protect the remainder. A price he was prepared to pay........ House survived the plan.

The house was closed by Greene King for about one year for refurbishment. Reopened 15th April 1985.
