Described in 1822 as a porter shop, frequented by rough customers.

Had entrances on Theatre Plain and King Street.

For sale by auction Wednesday 17th January 1827 being under lease to Mrs. Ruxby, expiring on 25th December 1826, at the yearly rent of £93 and underlet by her to Mrs. Cracknell, the resident tenant.
The house containing a bar, three parlours, a club-room, kitchen, back kitchen, five bedrooms, wash house, pantry, an attic, two garrets, two cellars, a paved yard and a small garden. Situated between King street and the Play-house. Fronting King Street, the house in the best situation for the draught of Porter (drawing 15 to 20 barrels a week) and well worthy of the attention of brewers and publicans.

On the night of Saturday 27th January 1884, a fire started at the top of Regent Street. The fire brigade were soon on the scene and set up hoses from three hydrants, one of which was opposite Mr. Oswald Diver's wine and spirit store. The Rose Tavern, separated by a narrow Row from the store, also owned by Mr. Diver was to the south of the outbreak. Strong winds rapidly spread the fire to the roof and upper part of the public house, above the bar. The roof of the Rose Tavern fell in. By four o'clock in the morning the fire was confined to the ruins of Mr. Bostock's (Sewing machine agent) shop and the Rose Tavern.
By daylight it could be seen that the roof of the Rose, along with part of the front had fallen in, while the walls were blackened with smoke and furniture broken up or lying buried in debris.
The occupant of the Rose, Mr. Overed said his furniture and stock was covered by the Sun Fire Office and it was fortunate that the contents of the bar had not caught fire, adding to the conflagration. On the Monday morning, Mr. Overed put a number of notices in the window of the front bar saying that business would continue as usual, but in the back premises.

According to a report dated 06.02.1904, Lacons applied to give up the spirit licence but keep the beer and wine licence and to relocate at 49, Church Road, Gorleston. Licensee George Albert Stone would take over the new premises.

House purchased by Diver & Son 1904.

7 day licence removed 01.02.1906 to the
CROWN, King Street / Regent Road.

This was said to be a very valuable licence being given up. £5,325 had been paid for it.

Became a jewellers shop.
