Formerly the RAM INN to 1845.

Before the Licensing Magistrates Tuesday 25th August 1863, eleven individuals, residing near the house, complained of the nuisance caused by Mr. Cornwall and his wife. It was said that they got drunk and disturbed the peace with their abusive and disgusting language. Mr. Cornwall said it was his wife who caused the disturbance but she had improved of late and hoped that there would be no more complaints. The licence was renewed, with a caution.

Totally destroyed by enemy action as recorded in S&P documents. Damage suffered both on the 27th and 29th April 1942.

 Business carried on from a shed from 28.07.1942

Compulsorily purchase announced 1955 and house closed 09.05.1955.
118 barrels sold in the final year of trading.

Licence held in suspense.

House eventually sold to Norwich Corporation 28.09.1960 and subsequently demolished.
