The contracts on The Greys were completed on Wednesday 18th 2018 and so the sale has been finalised to the new owners.
It is done.
Enterprise were convinced to sell to us rather than a higher bidder, it was only contractual issues that prevented it happening.
Out of 4 pubs recently sold by Enterprise in the local area, this is the only one not sold to developers. Even though we weren’t able to complete the purchase ourselves, this is still a major achievement in itself.
Thanks you so much for your passion for supporting a great pub, community spaces, live music and great beer.
The new owners have gone public on their other pubs website so we are free to say who they are.
They are James and Paul who come from a family of publicans and who have one other pub themselves. This is a pub in a group of terraced houses and serves craft beer, Belgium beer and has live music and a busy raft of other activities. So that you can get a flavour of how they operate, their pub is called the Lamplighter on Northampton and here is a link to their website.
They hope to open in the next week or so at The Greys and I’m sure that if you can, you will pop in and show your support in person.
We intend to keep active as Friends of The Greys, because we want Paul and James to succeed, and if there are opening events etc. we will let you know.
