Pubs & Beerhouses

It would appear that Malton always had a lot of pubs! In 1858 there were 23 public houses and 7 beerhouses in Malton town (possibly not all were listed in the directory.) [1] At the 1874 Brewster Sessions, there were said to be 34 licensed houses in the town (and a further 19 ‘in the country’.) Opening hours in the town were 6am to 10pm and Sundays 12.30 to 2.30 and 6pm to 10pm [2]
Under the Licensing Act 1904, The Old Talbot (Market-st), the Hare and Hounds (Newbiggin), and the Workmen's Arms beer house (Old Maltongate) had their licenses dispensed with on 31st December 1907. Based on the last census that left one license to every 204 of the population! [3]
A correspondent to the Yorkshire Gazette in 1913 reported that certain pubs and beer houses had closed since 1840 [4] Amongst the vanished hotels that existed in 1840 are the Angel Hotel, Saville-st, Robert Groves (landlord); Black Horse, Yorkersgate, David Hick; Rockingham rms, Wheelgate, Geo. Peterkin; White Hart, Low-st., John miller; White Horse, Yorkersgate, Thos. Vickerman; and beer houses – William Allen, Low-st; Robert Drake, Wheelgate; Mary Harwood, Old Maltongate; William Lapish, Newbegin; William Shuter, Low-st; Henry Simpkin, Old Maltongate

In 1923 5 licences were identified for review by the licensing authorities. Among others, Superintendent Craven of the Malton police believed that the 26 fully-licensed houses, 4 beer houses and 4 off-licenses were not necessary. There were at that time 13 situated in Wheelgate, Finkle-street, Market-place and Yorkersgate. He was of the opinion that three could be dispensed with [5]

A listing of pubs, inns and beer houses together with brief histories is maintained at Pubs Past and Present - Malton & Norton. The 'Lost Pubs Project' lists pubs that have closed in Malton.

The Temperance Movement

The use and misuse of alcohol was evident across the country in pre-Victorian times. Gin was the most popular drink of the working class. The Beer Act of 1830 enabled anybody who would pay two guineas to get a licence to sell beer from their own home – hence the term ‘beer house’. Making beer more widely available was designed to temp consumers away from gin and increase the quality of beer. In those days, brewing was a craft, not an industry, and took place in sheds, barns etc. There were frequent jailings for drunkenness, invariably of those from the working class who would tend to use the pubs and beer houses, whereas the middle class would consume their alcohol at home.
There were two movements that tried to address this. The ‘temperance movement’ which supported moderation, whereas the ‘teetotal movement’ supported total abstinence. Both had their promoters and followers in Malton. At the same time, religious groups lobbied for the restriction of alcohol sales.
Undoubtedly the consumption of beer was partly driven by availability and custom. However, it should also be remembered that water supplies were likely contaminated particularly as towns began to support increasing populations and the consumption of beer made with boiled water was a relatively safe alternative.
A Temperance Society was established in Malton in 1832 and became a Total Abstinence Society in 1837 and reportedly had 75 members [1]
The Malton Total Abstinence Society was founded in 1836 and celebrated its ninth year of existence on 7th August 1845 when ‘320 took tea in the Assembly-Rooms’ [2]. Clearly the Teetotallers were very active as a report in early 1839 describes there being ‘two public meetings last week, in the Boys’ Free School-room ...... and a reformed drunkard, delivered a humorous and highly characteristic address .... and on the second occasion .... by another reformed character ..... We understand several persons signed the pledge’ [3]. In January 1840 it was reported that in the two weeks after Christmas 38 signed [4].

Brewster Sessions

The Alehouse Act of 1828 required there to be an annual licensing meeting in every town. These became known as the Brewster sessions. At these meetings, licences would be renewed, transferred or refused.
In Malton, each year the superintendent of police would present a report to the Brewster Session summarising the licensing situation. This would include breaches of licences and cases of drunken behaviour. The justices at the Brewster Sessions would use this in deciding which licences would be renewed, which new ones and transfers would be granted. Landlords needed to be personally present at the meeting.
At the September 1838 Brewster Sessions, Mr. Lapish, a beer-retailer in Newbiggin applied for a spirit licence but the magistrates concluded there were sufficient spirit licensed houses without making any more. Mr. Lapish had been before the magistrates twice previously. [1]
In 1871 seven of the licensees were brought before the sessions and cautioned that if they were again convicted their licence would be withdrawn, and that from then on following a first caution, licences would be withdrawn. Those from Malton cautioned were James Stabler, of the Green man Inn, Frear Storr of the Crown and Anchor, Richard Walker of the King’s Head, Ann Taylor of the Spotted Cow and Charles potter of the Cross Keys Inn. Joseph Rollinson of the Hare and hounds Inn was told that as he had been twice convicted his licence would be withdrawn. [2]
In 1875 out of 52 licence holders, two had been convicted. The landlord of the Old Talbot Hotel for permitting drunkenness; and the landlord of the Prince of Wales beerhouse for allowing drinking in prohibited hours. Their licences were however renewed. 76 persons were summoned or apprehended for drunkenness with 74 convicted (figures for 1874 were 90 and 88 respectively) in the division. [3] . At this time, there was an active ‘teetotal’ or temperance movement in the town. At the same sessions there was one application for a new licence, from Mr. Thomas Taylor, a grocer in the town who asked for a wine and beer licence for a restaurant he had opened in Yorkersgate. The opposers said that there were quite sufficient places for supplying liquor already existing in the town. Mr. Taylor’s representative made the point that it was not a public-house licence that was being applied for, but one to sell wine and beer to those who came for more solid refreshment. He produced a ‘memorial’ signed by 5 clergymen, including the three vicars of the Malton parishes, plus the principal merchants, tradesmen, and farmers who visited the market. Mr Taylor said he would be content with the wine licence only, which was granted.

An old newspaper snippet [1] refers to the Old Talbot Inn. "With regard to the Old Talbot, a deed dated 25th October, 1764, describes the house as a messuage, 'burgage' house or tenement known as the Talbot Inn and in the occupation of Robert Cook. Later deeds show in 1807 the house was in the occupation of Mary Reed, in 1816, of Wm. Reed; in 1859, of Matthew Spencer and in 1874 of James Botterill. It is first described as the Old Talbot in the deed of 1859. The substantial building of that house (the walls being two feet thick) testifies to a respectable antiquity. I believe there was originally a mounting stone for horsemen in front of the inn". When this was published the Old Talbot was defunct.

Under the Licensing Act 1904, The Old Talbot (Market-st), had its license dispensed with on 31st December 1907 [2]

It was alleged that due to his neglect the business had 'practically gone altogether.' He responded that his house had always been a place for lodging by working class men engaged in the town. The reason his trade had gone down was because during the war period the firm had cut his supply to one barrel per week. Consequently he had lost the customer of the Leeds anglers who made the White Swan their headquarters but had to go elsewhere [2].
