Yorkshire Grey

The Yorkshire Grey is a public house and restaurant on the corner of Grays Inn Road and Theobald's Road in Bloomsbury, Camden, London, situated to the north of Gray's Inn. It is a Grade II listed building, built in 1877 by J. W. Brooker.[1]

History[edit]

The pub was established in 1676 and was historically in the county of Middlesex.[2] The Amalgamated Society of Gentleman's Servants once met at The Yorkshire Grey inn in the late 18th century, although Hart Street is mentioned as the location and it is possibly a different pub.[2] In 1848 it was owned by an Oliver Waterloo King.[3] It serves Scotch and Japanese whiskies and traditional English pub grub.[4]

There were also public houses of the same name in Cambridge in the 19th century at 64 King Street and in Sheffield, which closed in 2006.
