In May 1828, William Burroughs offered Whitbread's Porter and Brown Stout in Butts, Barrels and Half-barrels. Families would be provided with Porter at 55s per Barrel and Brown Stout at 65s per Barrel. A discount of 5% given if the account was settled within one month.

Address 1886 as 1 & 2 Market Place

Noted in 1907 as the oldest licensed house in Gt. Yarmouth.

Taken over by Lacon & Co in 1897.
(Although the house is listed as the property of Lacon & Co in 1824?)


Address also as 2 Market Place or Brewery Plain.
