Whether you’re a Yass local or visitor, you’ve no doubt stopped by or heard about the Royal Hotel in town.
The iconic venue is getting a makeover and staff want you to share your memories and stories, via an online survey!
“We’re about to go through a big renovation of the pub and we’re asking locals to share their stories as a way of celebrating the rich history and culture,” owner Chris Cornforth said.
“Photos, any stories, newspaper articles, we know people used to get married there, we know people stayed there while travelling, it’s such an iconic destination.”
Mr Cornforth said he wants to make sure the pub, which will soon be known as the The Yass Hotel, maintains its historic charm and celebrates its history.
“We just want to make sure people remember the good parts of the old Royal Hotel and see the best parts of the new Yass Hotel.”
What will happen with all the collected memories? We’ll find out closer to the opening of the newly renovated hotel in August!
