On Friday 1st June 1866, James Morl, licensee was charged with having attempted suicide by hanging. He was handed over to the care of his wife and friends.

February 1868 : Henry Warner, son of the licensee, Thomas Dowler and Joseph Carter were accused of defrauding Nathan Hirish, a Jewish commercial traveller from Spittalfields, London. The case was dismissed owing to lack of evidence.
However the three were then accused of defrauding the Jew Lialter of £22 10s and were released into their own recognizances in £50, and finding sureties of £25 each, to be tried at the next Session.
Licensee Henry Warner senior was found guilty of allowing gaming in his house.

Henry King applied Tuesday 23rd August 1870 for a full licence.
It was said that in previous years the house had been one of the most notorious character, harbouring thieves and prostitutes, but since the arrival of the applicant, the character had completely changed.
The Chief-Constable confirmed that the house had been under the strictest police surveillance and nothing wrong had been detected.
The applicant had left Yarmouth some seven years previously and received a testimonial from the magistrates of that borough in his support. He had also kept the HOP POLE for several years without any complaint.
The Mayor noticed that the memorial presented contained one name that had appeared on two previous memorials and asked if parties were paid for their signatures, or the individual was a great consumer of liquors? It was explained that the signature was of the parish overseer, and parties would naturally seek his support.
Application granted.
