Graham Coombs left this review about The Yorkshire Grey

I can't remember what this pub was like the last time I visited it many years ago, but I am certain it was nothing like this. There is one large room, with polished wood floors, a counter along the back faced with old timber and a general hipsterish feel. There were two cask ales - Wimbledon Copper Leaf and Doom Bar, although luckily the latter was off. The Copper Leaf was not cheap but was well kept.

Modern and busy pub.Cheapish tables and what looked like school chairs.No cask,rubbish keg selection but they have a limited list of craft bottled beers.Brixton -atlantic ipa was a ripper.Why worry about your beer selection if you get this busy.

Two real ales on in here - Redemption Trinity and Truman Swift (£2.25 a half). There are single sheet menus on the tables attached to clipboards. Main courses are 10 - 12 (no unnecessary £s here). The pie of the week (unspecified filling), is £11. Sandwiches are available lunchtime - 6.5 to 8.5 (£6.50 to £8.50 I guess). For a pub with such an impressive corner site frontage, this is a very simple single room pub inside. A few chunky tall tables/tall stools are down the middle of the room; banquettes and cheap Antic-looking chairs elsewhere, combined with some metal (pewter probably) and pine wood coloured tables. The bar counter is similarly pewer topped, with rough, unplaned, planking as its frontage. It's very modern and characterless.

There are sprigs of mint (for mojitos I suppose), jars of nuts and olives, a vase containing lemons, and a large floral display of lilies on the bar counter. It's that sort of place. It wasn't too crowded on Wednesday evening (not surprising with 3.9% Truman's Swift at £2.25 a half) but the accoustics and lack of carpets and soft furnishings still made it seem very noisy. It's not really my kind of place, but I guess others might like these drastically madeover places.

This pub is rather unmemorable - not a bad place but there's probably no reason to visit unless you are a local office worker or, more likely, a barrister. There are better and more interesting back street pubs tucked further away into Clerkenwell's heart of darkness.

I’m not a fan of these gastro type stripped wood establishments where the conversations of others turn into white noise and echo around the pub. I had to wait for the bar staff to finish a conversation before being served, but the barman was friendly enough when he did finally get to me. Harveys Best, Greene King IPA and Caledonian Kiss Me Quick were the surprising ale choices and Amstel was also available along with a limited standard draught selection. I plumped for the Guinness which was well served and on good form.

I didn’t spot any TVs and the background music was on so low that it could hardly be heard.

I think that this place is aimed at diners rather than drinkers and I can’t see myself returning.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Yorkshire Grey Pub & Kitchen

Looks like an interesting pub from the outside, but at first glance the interior shouts bleached wood gastro-pub at you. However, they have three handpumps serving a perfectly repectable pint of Harveys and a couple of others (including Hook Norton 'Hooky' Bitter). Helpful bar staff too.

Provided you understand that this is a bar/restaurant rather then a pub, you'll not be disappointed. It's very much one for after work do's and groups of friends wanting to dine out reasonably cheaply. It's an attractive bar and has a good location at a major crossroad. I've found the beer selection to be limited and I suspect they probably don't turn over too much.

This is a quality Pub which does decent food as well. I met a friend who was arriving into Kings Cross on Friday night last. To avoid the dodgyness of KC and the mess of the West end....I suggested here as I had noticed it was just bought over. We got a nice quietish corner, two classic burgers and loads of top class Guinness. Nice mix of chilled suits, media folk anf locals. Irish owned I think....a great meeting point in "Midtown".
