Located opposite the Town Hall near the West end of Row 71, Howard Street to Hall Plain.

Walter C. Grimes is reported as owner of the adjoining **Town Hall Dining Rooms, who successfully applied 24.08.1901 to cover both premises with the same licence.

An application for slight alterations to the Town Hall Tavern and Dining Rooms was made Friday 14th April 1905.
The Bench approved the plans.


When the licence was transferred from Mr. Legood to Mr. Mason on 20th January 1908, it was heard that Mr. Legood was then managing another house in the town.
The Chief Constable said that Mr. Mason was well known as a man of great experience in managing licensed houses, adding that he would need all his experience. "What had happened this morning must not be taken as getting past what happened previously. I mention this so that later on, it cannot be said that I said nothing when this transfer was applied for."

Referred to Compensation 01.03.1927.

Licence renewal refused at the Principal Meeting for the Licensing (Consolidation) Act 1910, held 22nd June 1927.

A notice was published 3rd September 1927 informing any person due compensation from the closure of the premises, to make their claim by 24th September 1927.

Licence expired 25th October 1927

(In the sale of Wymondham Brewery to Morgans, 11.05.1894, a HALL TAVERN is mentioned - Same house ?)

Premises became a shop.

 

** On Tuesday 24th February 1920, the Town Hall Restaurant, used as a restaurant for 63 years, but lately as a Government Office, was offered for sale as Freehold premises.
Location given as extending from Town Hall Plain to Howard Street South.
