In November 1990 a new five year lease was accepted from Courage at £13,200 per annum. In 1991 GrandMet sought to renew the lease for  twenty rather than five years and increase the annual rent to £32,000. In December 1994 the Appeal Court ruled that Courage/GrandMet could not impose a twenty year lease. Licensee James `Tiny' Little won his three year case against Courage & Grand Metropolitan subsidiary Inntrepreneur Estates.
In January 1995 it was reported that Inntrepreneur threatened to take the case to the House of Lords....... However the December 1994 ruling was confirmed by February 1995.

House sold to tenant September 2nd 1996.
