There was a lively trade in cattle, which were disembarked and sometimes fattened, and in fish. The inn owned stables, barns, a haystack and later a mooring place for the harbour steam service. The inn acquired its current appearance in 1766. In the second half of the 19th century, six bathhouses were placed, but that turned out not to be a success. In addition, there were also horse racing competitions. In 1887 the cattle trade disappeared to the then new Cattle Market. In 1896, the inn was annexed to Amsterdam territory by annexing the territory of Diemen, for the construction of the Indische buurt. Until 1915 the building remained in use as an inn.
