The Greys pub on Southover Street Hanover has been listed by the council as an Asset of Community Value and it has a proud history of staging live music, bringing acts from all over the world, attracted by its intimacy and knowledgeable audience. It is a great place to meet new people or have a drink or two with friends. It will make a brilliant resource in community hands.

It's for Sale, Freehold!

Over the past seven years this extremely popular local has seen multiple changes of management and the vast Ei Group Ltd. that owns it has finally concluded that the pub no longer fits with their corporate business model. We at last have a terrific opportunity to save this wonderful place for the future, or loose it forever.

Save The Greys

The Save the Greys campaign was formed to buy The Greys for the people that will use it. The building has been granted Asset of Community Value status by the Council and a moratorium successfully placed on the pub sale. We now have only until 28th December to raise money and make a successful bid to :- Save The Greys!


Our vision is to reinvent The Greys as a social enterprise owned and run by the residents of Hanover and the wider public of Brighton and beyond. We aim to additionally provide a daytime resource for community groups, offering space for creativity, learning, support and wellbeing initiatives run by, and for, residents.


We will be free to focus on providing great local real ales and a wide range of craft beers, including Belgium beers of all styles, and energising the on-going Greys tradition of international live music. Any surplus profits will go to shareholders and be ploughed back into local community causes.
