OUR STORY SO FAR
The building was originally Pall Mall Motors selling and services English cars including Studebaker and Singer. It then became the Bendigo Advertiser printing press until the newspaper printing was consolidated to another site in the 1990's. The building sat idle as an empty warehouse until 2016 when it was purchased by a local family. It was extensively renovated to become the Four Ponies Restaurant and Bar opening is April 2017. It was again renovated and refurbished in 2019 to what it is today.
