Background

The Royal George Hotel was the name for the hotel from about 1863 until about 1892. The first hotel on the site was Jackson's Hotel, from 1860-1863.[1] After the forced hotel closures in Ballarat in the 1890's, the Royal George was renamed the Federal Hotel.[1] In 1913 it was renamed as the Railway Hotel until the 1970's.[1] For a time it was known as the Regent Tavern. In 2013 it was opened as Jackson's & Co.. In 2016 the hotel became the The Sporting Globe Hotel.
