( As recorded when conveyed 23rd August 1845 by Samuel Paget and Others to George Morse, Timothy Steward, Peter Finch and Henry Staniforth Patteson. )

Reported to the magistrates September 1852 as one of five houses in the town which were continually open to an unreasonably late hour.


On the morning of Saturday 22nd November 1856, police-constable Brown found a man outside the public house who complained that a person within had assaulted him. A considerable time passed before the door was opened and the said attacker could not be found. Mr. Bilsden claimed that he was not aware that it was the police knocking at the door and thought it was the complainant who was intoxicated. Bilsdon was fined 10s and costs.

At the September 1863 licensing sessions, this house was described by one of the magistrates a really a brothel of the very foulest description.
The application to transfer the licence from George Bilsden to William Roland was refused.
