A notice of that meeting was published on 20th September 1924 and informed any person due compensation from the closure of the premises, to make their claim by 14th October 1924.

On Friday 19th September 1924, Messrs. Lacon & Co. informed the magistrates that the Average sales were; barrelage per year, based upon the previous three years was 74 at 14s a barrel; 443 dozen bottles of beer at 1s per dozen; 62 minerals at 3d a dozen. Over 12 years this would produce sales of £896 14s 0d. With added rent, depreciation and an unlicensed value of £280 taken into consideration, a net claim of £1030 16s was claimed, and granted.

Although apparently licensed to sell beer and wine, no wine sales recorded.

Closed 1924.
