The Royal Oak Hotel is a hotel in Ballarat, Victoria, 1873-2014> It was first called the Sign of the Castle and Ball Hotel[1], or the Castle and Bowl Hotel.[2]

Contents

Background

The hotel was begun by John Ellis. Ellis had been a storekeeper at 10 Raglan Street in 1858. The original hotel is described as a brick building with a bar, parlour, sitting room, and six bedrooms, as well as kitchens and out buildings.[1] The name was changed to the Royal Oak Hotel around 1873, when Thomas Sanderson took over the licence.[1] The Ballarat Brewing Company bought the hotel in 1901.[1]


History

In 1878 the publican was charged with having allowed drunken and rowdy people to assemble at her hotel. The case was dismissed when it was shown that it was a group of sober people singing hymns.[3]

On 22 March 1915, the hotel was included on a list of hotels to be deprived of their licenses. This list was complied by the Licenses Reduction Board in Melbourne. The Ballarat West licensing district hearings on this list were to be held on 27 April.[4]

Site

The Royal Oak Hotel is at 402 South Street, on the corner with Raglan Street.
