A nice little compact pub on the opposite side of the road from The Geese. Just a couple of cask on from Gun, Dry Hopped Summer Best and Pale Ale, a third was being pulled through though I forgot to note what it was at the time.
A cosy pub worth a visit.

3 real ales and a good selection of Belgian bottled beers. The management of this pub has changed since my visit.

The Greys is a strange little pub in a part of town worth visiting for its back street boozers. The single room interior is L shaped with a wood and flagstone floor and the servery is tucked away, almost as an afterthought, in the rear right corner. Bench and low stool seating fills the space at the front of the room and around the corner towards the back the tables have been set up more formally, presumably for those wanting to dine, with many of them reserved. A fireplace with a small stove can be found on the left hand side of the room whilst the walls have been covered with all manner of flyers for live music including an impressive amount that line the staircase up to the toilets. Mood music of the sort that normally has me running for the door was playing throughout my stay and the CD was on display and available to buy from behind the bar. A framed football shirt from the film ‘The Penalty Kings’ is hung on a wall, reflecting the fact that the pub, a keen champion of pub football, was one of the locations for the movie. An Egon Ronay review dated 2006 has also been put on display.
Just the two regular ales are available – Timothy Taylor Landlord and the entirely predictable Harvey’s Best. The Landlord was undoubtedly in good condition and worthy of the pub’s Good Beer Guide listing. Maybe I’m being a bit spoiled here, but I can’t say that this choice is going to make me return in a hurry, especially as Harvey’s can be bought in countless more interesting pubs around town.
I do wonder if I missed something on my visit, but I really didn’t take to this place. It seems fairly welcoming and is certainly well looked after but nothing really stood out for me and with that beer range I can’t see me forsaking other nearby pubs in favour of this place.
