The Queens Head Hotel was a hotel in Ballarat, Victoria, 1862-2016. It reopened in 2017.[1]

Contents

Background

History

The hotel began in 1862. The existing building was put up in 1907.[2] In December 1941, the publican, Edmund Francis O'Keefe, was fined £3 for allowing people on the premises during prohibited hours.[3]

In October 2016 the publican, Jason Tuohy, was evicted after a long running argument with the hotel's owners.[4] The roof in the dining room had been leaking, and caused the ceiling to collapse. Rather than repair the roof, the owners gave Tuohy notice to quit. The hotel closed on 26 October 2016.

Site

The Queens Head Hotel is at 146 Humffray Street North.[5]
