user reviews of the Grey Horse, East Boldon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Got off the metro here yesterday to give this pub a try. East Boldon is classed as a village and the sight of horses trotting up the roads made it feel like a village. But it's still part of the urbanised area between Newcastle and Sunderland. The pub itself was nice enough and is bigger than I initially anticipated. with drinking areas on both sides of the main bar. It seemed a bit dull inside and lacked a bit of atmosphere with very few customers. The bar staff were friendly. Food seemed to be the focus. Although there were 4 ales on - Thwaites Lancaster Bomber, Maxim Double Maxim, Jennings Cumberland Ale & Wychwood Hobgoblin. It's a good 15 minute walk slightly uphill from the metro station. It probably doesn't warrant the effort to try again in the future.

Has improved with a slight shift in emphasis to the drinker again.

Worth a visit

Recently refurbished,(overcome with emulsion), bar and lounge now knocked together, new management, (Sheila and John), who are trying hard to bring this pub back to where it should be... i.e. the best pub in the village. 3 cask ales,(11/9/05),Black Sheep, Grey Horse,(Darwin Best Bitter)and one,(usually Darwin), guest. Quiz night Sun. Food all day, but not a knife in the kitchen.

If you don't fanct the food or families try the bar (right hand door of the Grey Horse) which is just fine to have a beer in. Pint of scotch please pet and put a good head on it.

A mock tudor building that is actually almost as old as it seems. Originally an inn for the passing trade for those travelling from Edinburgh to York.

It still has a rustic charm with low beams and open fires offering a cosy feel.

It was a great place to enjoy real ale, alas the previous landlord retired and sadly passed away recently - the beer quality has suffered.

It's decent place to take your missus though, but it does come with a nasty sting with town centre prices.

Not to mention the new God in pubs - selling food and so squeezing out the drinker.

Worth a look despite all it's problems
