1984

John Watson Smith applied for a licence Tuesday 27th August 1867. Application refused with the Chief Constable saying that there were already four public houses close by.

First licensed 1868.

Mr. Edward Burton, applied Friday 24th August 1900 to sell beer in bottles, off the premises. He held a strong beer excise licence and thought that it would be better for parents to send their children to collect sealed bottles from a grocers, rather than a public house. The application said Mr. Burton was at the PROVISION STORES, but he does not appear in the licence register and it seems this was a brief break from the BURTON STORES . Application not granted.


Closed Saturday 2nd August 1997.

Renamed the PEASANTS & POETS cafe/bar.

Renamed the STORES by January 2002.

Closed February 2014
