Formerly the CARPENTERS ARMS.

William Benjafield applied for a music licence Monday 23rd September 1901. It was said that he had run public houses for 20 years and had been at the Great Eastern for two and a half years.
The previous tenant had dropped the music licence for reasons unknown. Several residents had voiced complaint against the house for noise emanating from people `singing' in the bar.
The magistrates refused the application and reminded Mr. Benjafield that his (public house) licence was only good for one year and some considered there were too many licences.

Purchased by Steward & Patteson 29.10.1925 for £850.

Became the SILVER HERRING 07.03.1969
