The recent refurbishment and up-grade has meant the new-look Grey Horse can call itself a gastro-pub. The food was superb, the ambience is really cool and it still feels like the old Grey Horse as it retains the old charm but is pretty swanky. I had the veggie option which was superb. All the real ales served in the pub are available in the restaurant and there is a good wine list. I feel it’s going to become a regular haunt.
