Greys gallops ahead with new pub sign

The Argus: A new sign goes up at popular Brighton pub The Greys A new sign goes up at popular Brighton pub The Greys

A new sign has been erected at a resurgent pub.

Nathan Wright, the new landlord at The Greys in Southover Street, has proudly presented his specially-commissioned swinging sign.

Mr Wright, who also owns The Geese pub, revealed the two grey horses kicking two geese out of their way. It was painted by local artist Jake Wood-Evans.

He said: “The sign was outside the pub several years ago and was put up by a previous landlord as playful banter with The Geese pub which sits opposite.

“I thought it would be an amusing thing to recreate. Also, there was a lot of concern about me taking The Greys over, so what better way to prove people wrong than by recreating something from its past.”

Live music returned to the venue this week.

Mr Wright added: “Many things have been written about The Greys in recent months but it’s still here and it’s still the same friendly, vibrant pub it always was, with the music back and now a shiny new pub sign.”

There are too many pubs disappearing in the UK and I'm all for promoting them and helping them out and love British pubs! However, does someone from Ther Argus have shares in this one as there is an article every week about it? Or is it just me? Why not have a focus on a different pub each week on here and promote them all? I'd love to know akll the hidden gems around Brighton...
