This iconic Southern Downs pub could be yours

IF YOU'VE ever wanted to own a pub where everyone knows your name, this latest Southern Downs sale opportunity may just be the place to help you live out your Cheers fantasy.

After 12 years, Yangan Hotel Motel part-owner Vanessa Guy has put the iconic spot up for sale as current tenants Bob and Kylie Friend's lease comes to an end.

Ms Guy said she was first lured to buy the property after being entranced by the vibrant Yangan community.

"It was the atmosphere of the pub, locals wanted to know us and what we were up to immediately," she said.

"That really got us in."

Over the years, the pub has become a staple and centrepiece of events such as P & C raffles, fundraisers and the iconic Truck Pull.

"I remember we wanted to do a fundraiser because everyone's spirits were down because of ill health and drought … and we didn't know if anyone would show up but 500 people ended up turning out," Ms Guy said.

"It's been a really good investment but the ideal people definitely need to be enthusiastic community players."

With four motel rooms and a two-bedroom, one-bathroom manager's quarters, Mrs Guy said the spot would be perfect for those looking for a "job and house and lifestyle all at the same time."

"I just think it needs an ideal mum and dad. or a mum and dad and couple of older kids to help out,' she said.

"We really enjoyed the place, only reason I got out of it was because we had two babies and a farm."
