EXCISE COFFEE HOUSE in 1842, 1846, 1850 & 1862.

In October 1848 the ` Capital Liquor Shop, with Small Brewery Attached was advertised to let owing to the expiry of lease to Mr. Samuel Olley. The advertisement names the house as the RED LION TAVERN. Was this a short-lived name or an error by the type-setters?

Licensee Richard Plane appeared before the magistrates Wednesday 12th October 1859 charged with refusing to admit a Police Officer. On the previous Sunday night constable Snelling had heard voices and knocked at the door to gain admittance. A female asked who was there and upon the reply, `the police', a male voice said `Never mind him'. The constable knocked again and the landlord came to the door but did not open it. He said that he had been upstairs and had only come down to get something for one of his children, the officer was mistaken about anyone else being there and that no female had answered the door. The magistrates found no imputation on his house and merely ordered him to pay the costs.

June 30th 1860 - Richard Plane of the EXCISE COFFEE HOUSE & BREWERY, thanked his friends for their support over the past 10 years that he had been at the house and begged their attention to be directed towards his Superior Home- Brewed Ales available from 8d to 1s 4d per Gallon.

Licensee Plane cautioned at the Annual Licensing Meeting Tuesday 4th September 1860 for having been summoned during the previous year.
The Mayor warned the tenant to be very careful how the house was conducted, else the magistrates would act rigorously.
