The licensee of this house was one of seven who were fined during early October 1853, for allowing drunkenness in their house or for selling at improper hours. The editorial commenting on the enforcement of law thought it would have been better if the clamp-down had commenced with the landlords of houses of a higher class.

Given as the RING DOVE by Simpson in 1864.

At the Guildhall on Tuesday 3rd April 1866 it was heard that Sergeant Kirk had found the doors to the house open at about 10:45 in the morning of Good Friday. Inside there were two men drinking and smoking and two others in the tap-room, also drinking. Defendant George Bales did not appear until after the case was heard, was fined 2/6d and costs of 8/6d; or seven days.

The Chief Constable objected to licence renewal at the 1906 Sessions.
It was said that the premises were very old and in bad repair. The police found it difficult to supervise. It was in a congested area with 13 other licensed houses within 200 yards.

Licence provisionally refused Wednesday 7th February 1906 and referred to Compensation.
Closed under Compensation 08.02.1907.
