History[edit | edit source]

In July 1892 two brothers were fined for assault and bad language after an incident in the bar:

At the police court today, before Messrs T. Harding and J. P. Spiers, two brothers named Daniel and John Doyle were charged by Constable Arnold with assaulting one Rudolph Graf, and making use of obscene language in the hearing of persons passing in a public place, on the night of the 5th July. The offences were alleged to have been committed at the Coghill's Creek hotel, at about quarter past 11. Rudolph Graf, Mrs Wedderson (licensee of the hotel), and H. Townsend (barman), having given evidence, the case was held to be proven, and John Doyle was fined sums amounting in the aggregate to £1 15s, and Daniel £1 12s, in default, imprisonment. In both instances the fines were paid.[3]

In April 1897 the publican was fined for allowing dice games to be played, in breach of the Licensing Act 1885:

At the Police Court on Friday before Mr Leader. P.M., John C. Fraser, licensee of the Coghill’s Creek hotel, was proceeded against for allowing dice to be played on his premises, on the night of the 4th April. A few weeks back Fraser sued a man named McQuade for debt, and during its hearing it transpired that dice was played on the above date, and the police thereupon took the above action. A number of witnesses were examined, and the case considered proved, and a fine was inflicted of £3, and £1 13s 9d costs, 14 days being allowed in which to pay it.[4]
