History[edit | edit source]

In June 1862 the Licensing Court refused a license for the hotel stating that it was not clean:

Duncan Munro, Caledonian Hotel, Dowling Forest. Senior Constable McHugh opposed the granting of a certificate, on the ground of the dirty state of the premises when inspected by him. After due inquiry, the Bench refused the license. The applicant asked leave to keep open the house till a new application could be made stating that his premises were now clean. The Bench declined to interfere, and said the house must be closed; but a new application could be filed and heard in three weeks' time.[2]

In October 1863 a woman was charged with trying to steal £3 by deception from the publican, a Mrs. Munro.[1] Munro told the court the woman was quite insane.
