History[edit | edit source]

In October 1863, the publican, H. Blunt, was trapped in flood water, and was dramatically rescued from the creek by Frederick Parkinson, publican of the Black Hill Hotel[2]

In January 1931, the publican was charged with four breaches of the licensing laws:

Four charges under the licensing law were made against Steve Wainwright Cracknall, licensee of the Victoria Hotel, Linton, on Wednesday. He was charged with having the bar door open, with having disposed of liquor, with having persons on the premises without lawful excuse during prohibited hours, and with failing to keep the lodgers' book posted up. Ernest Biggs was charged with having been on the premises. Constable Vinicombe gave evidence that he found, the licensee in the bar, where there were two damp glasses. He saw three men leave the hotel about an hour before. The defence was that Cracknall's son, John, had injured his knee. He was taken home by Biggs, who was in the bar parlor when the constable arrived. It was admitted that Cracknall was getting, himself a drink. The charge against Biggs was withdraw. Cracknall was fined £2 for not having the lodgers' book posted up, and £5 for having the bar door open. The other charges against him were dismissed.[3]
