'Southern Comfort' bandits rob Australian hotel

Patrons were offered a drink by armed robbers as they held a gun to a hotel manager's head and stole money from an ATM and poker machines.

Customers at the Allawah Hotel in Sydney's south who were ordered to lie down on the floor after three masked men burst into the pub with guns were told not to worry by one of the robbers who placed their beers on the floor for them.

They were also offered a drink of Southern Comfort spirits from a bottle taken from behind the bar.

Police said three armed men entered the hotel and threatened the manager by holding a gun to his head and ordering him to open all the poker machines, the safe and the ATM. The men escaped in a silver high powered Lexus.
