It was one of the 40 hotels closed in 1891 in Ballarat East as part of the changes to licensing laws.[1],


The owners were paid £996 compensation for the closure of the business.[1]


Hargreaves said the Bird-in-Hand was in Victoria Street[2], and the Ballarat Star reported it as Melbourne Road in 1862.[3]
