History[edit | edit source]

In December 1889 the police objected to the license being renewed because of the poor state of repair:

The members of the Ballarat Licensing Court, His Honor Judge Gaunt, and Messrs Thomson and Heron, P.M’s., paid a visit of inspection yesterday to two houses, Leech’s Carbine hotel, Sturt street, and Ryan’s Bridge hotel, Peel street, the licenses of which had been objected to by Inspector Parkinson. The grounds of the objections were, in each ease, that the premises were not kept in a proper state of repair...In regard to the Bridge hotel, he also remarked that the cause of complaint should have been remedied. However, as the main portion of the building was in good repair, they had decided to renew the license, with the proviso that it should not issue until the inspector certified that the promised work was done. His Honor remarked that in future they would not make any inspections to see whether anything had been done since the visit of the inspector, but would decide by the condition of the houses at the time they were inspected. An hotel should be in good repair all the year round, not merely just in order before licensing day.[1]
