The Royal Highlander Hotel was a hotel in Ballarat, Victoria, <1888-1961>.

Contents

Background

The first hotel on the site (SE Cnr of Mair and Doveton Streets) was the Royal Oak. It was subsequently renamed the Royal Highlander in 1858 with Dr James Stewart as the owner.[1]

In 1861 the hotel was called Tait's Hotel, and had been earlier called the Royal Highlander.[2]

This hotel was later known as the Peter Lalor Hotel.

The Hotel is now trading as The Pub With Two Names

Site

William Bramwell Withers describes the hotel as being on the south east corner of Doveton Street and Mair Street.[3]

History

  • December 1885 The Royal Highlander Hotel, situated at the corner of Mair and Doveton streets was, our correspondent states, totally destroyed by fire on Tuesday morning at three o'clock. The proprietor, Mr. M'Cormick, cannot account for tho conflagration. The premises, which belonged to Dr. Stewart, were insured for £250, and the stock and furniture for £600.[4]
  • Mrs Margaret Coram, licensee of the Royal Highlander hotel, was charged with having her bar door open during prohibited hours on the 20th January. Inspector Steele prosecuted, and explained that the defendant was unable through, illness to attend, but admitted the offence. Constable Klugson gave evidence to prove the charge, and the bench inflicted the minimum fine of 5 pound.[5]
  • January 1915 Janet Coad, was fined £5 on Friday on a charge of having had her bar door open on 8th January during prohibited hours[6]

Community Involvement
