CANUNGRA Hotel customers received an amusing surprise after staff posted a video featuring photos of their regulars sitting at the bar and being served their favourite tipple.
The video was quick to pick up attention on social media with 44 shares soon after it was posted.
Angela Graham and Jess Bartlett said they had both been working at the pub for about 11 years and had grown fond of their customers.
"We wanted to do something funny for the locals and to let them know we miss everybody," Ms Graham said.
"Every time one of them came in to the bottle shop we took their photo but we didn't tell them what it was for.
"They loved the video, they had a good laugh.
"They are in general a fun lot, they're larrikins and they love having a joke."
Ms Graham said they had intended the video just to be for the few locals depicted and did not expect it to get so many shares or get media attention.
"We are thinking we might have to video an update, some of the customers have fallen over since the first one," she said.
Ms Graham said they were still able to see locals briefly but social distancing rules meant the regular catch-up at the bar was something everyone missed.
"The bottle shop is still open and we are doing takeaway meals from Wednesday to Saturday nights," she said.
Customers can see the menu and order their meals on canungrahotel.com.au or phone 55435233.
