July 1, 2015
Julian recently visited the newly refurbished Grey Horse Pub in Elvington, where he met licensees Andy and Amanda Booth and Punch Taverns Manager Jim Owthwaite.
The pub has now reopened after closing for renovations since the beginning of June. Andy and Amanda launched the Grey Horse by hosted preview dinners, inviting guests to sample the pub’s traditional food which uses locally sourced ingredients from around Yorkshire.
Speaking at the launch, Andy said: “We want to make The Grey Horse a community pub, the way pubs used to be. We are bringing back traditional pub values and putting the pub back at the heart of the community.”
Punch Taverns Manager, Jim Owthwaite, said: “On behalf of Punch Taverns we would like to thank Mr Sturdy for his support for Andy, Amanda and the Grey Horse. This is going to be a community pub for the locals of Elvington to be proud of, and, with the investment we have now made we believe it can now flourish and go from strength to strength.”
Commenting on his visit, Julian added “I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the reopening of the Grey Horse pub and it is fantastic to see the results of the renovations first hand. It is great news that people have another community pub to visit and I wish Andy and Amanda every success for the future.”
