Formerly known as the MAIL COACH

At the Quarter Sessions, held Wednesday 17th October 1855 it was heard that the licence of William Townshend had been refused, by fifteen magistrates, at the last Licensing Meeting (28th August 1855 when only one of fifteen magistrates would sign the licence).
Mr. Townshend was appealing against the decision, but Messer's Morgans, as the proprietors, were the real appellants.
The police had reported that on the 28th October 1854, near mid-night about 100 people were found on the nine-pin ground at the rear of the premises. Two recently convicted persons were there as well as other bad characters. The women there were of the worst description. The constable confirmed that no charges had ever been made against the licensee or any customers.
Inspector George Steward said that upon his visit on the previous October he had found thieves and prostitutes in the house. He confirmed that no charge had been made against any person associated with the house and the owners had not been informed of the character of the house.
Another event was said to have occurred `sometime ago' when two police officers and a magistrate, Mr. Sultzer entered the house and witnessed "that in a comparatively small room there were nearly 100 boys and girls, from eleven and twelve years old, sitting in the most indecent attitudes".
The representative for Morgans said that in no other case had a licence been refused without the tenant not having previously been warned of bad conduct. They complained that since they were not informed, they had no reason to find a better tenant.
The licence had been held for many years and at no time had information been laid against the house.
The decision of the magistrates was confirmed.

At the Licensing Sessions held Tuesday 2nd September 1856 it was reported that the house had previously lost its licence and had been operating as a beerhouse. Thomas Foulsham applied for renewal of licence, which was granted.

On Tuesday 12th June 1866, George Cossey was summoned for assaulting Police-constable Sidney.
On the previous Saturday night Sidney had entered the Coach & Horses and asked if all company had gone. Cossey was said to have took hold of the constable by his coat and dragged him through the house, throwing him into the street. At the same time he was said to be using very foul language and threatening violence on any policeman who came to his house. A witness for Cossey said that he believed both parties to be intoxicated. The Chief Constable said there was no evidence from visits from inspectors through the night, that Sidney had drunk anything and added that he was a very steady man. The magistrates found Cossey guilty and imposed a fine of £2 10s and costs or 21 days imprisonment.


According to the Norfolk Chronicle of 26th August 1899, Morgans Brewery presented plans to the Magistrates for a new building to be erected, partially on the site of the original house, but further back from the road.

Morgans sales for 1960 were :-
350 barrels of beer
128 spirits.

The weeks takings of £385 were stolen, according to a
press report of June 1973.

Became a pizza restaurant.
