Grey Mare pub Clifton

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got any old photos' of the old Grey Mare pub in Clifton. I've googled it be the only photos' I can find are the newer ones. I remember the old pub sign had one of Shipstones grey dray horses on the  sign, I think it was changed when Greenalls Brewery took over from Shippo's. Any photos' would be appreciated. I remember when it was opened there was two dray horses in the car park.

Regards Litcho.

I can remember going in the best room,must have been early seventies and the was a burn hole in the middle of the carpet, best room? I never dared go in the bar after that, can you remember the off licence about the middle of the place, to the left of the bay window, when were you knocking about around there Litcho? Perhaps Ian 123 or Clif ton can find a picture for you

I seem to think the one on the right Ian before Greenalls took over rings a bell with me

I preferred Clifton Bridge Inn..Saturday class at The Spanish Guitar Centre..into the Flying Horse for an underage snifter..upto The Downs in Silverdale and get ratted in the CBI...then a bit of night fishing up by the old folks home.

A few additional Grey Mare facts.Rose the Grey mare had been a Dray horse for just over eleven years. At the pubs opening,a cattle lorry arrived..on board was Rose and the recently born foal Jane.Shipstones organised this..and photos!!..are about of this occasion.

Does anyone recall the portrait of the two horses that hung inside the pub?

I remember the picture of the two horses,I also remember the beer mats,compared to some other breweries beer mats Shipstones were pretty plain looking,Tadcaster, M&B and Bass were more colourful but I suppose they seemed that way because they weren't so common as the Nottingham brewery ones

No old photo but this YT video brought back some memories. Well done Bob Brindley. There is a full list in the text, a few that I had never herd of or been in
