The Yorkshire Grey in Holburn has been a pub since 1676. This is the first time in its 340 years it has closed its doors for so long.

The Yorkshire Grey

Also known as the "Y.G." to its friends is a public house and events space which has been run by an independent company headed up by Paul Garner since 2008. Before lockdown it was hosting events for both corporate companies and parties for individual celebrations 7 days a week. The pub has a fantastic team offering friendly and attentive customer service for all. This year it was recognised as 'The best pub & small event venue in London" in the SME `UK Enterprise Awards.


The Closure

On the 17th March 2020 we had to shut the doors to the YG due to the outbreak of Covid-19. The last 3 months have been extremely challenging for us as we have had no revenue during this time, in addition we have lost a number of big events that were planned for the Autumn even though we should be able to reopen by then


The Fundraising Project

The aim of the project is to ensure we are able to keep the business afloat until it is safe to reopen the venue and return to normal trading. It will also be invested into setting up a service where we are able to bring the pub to your office providing draft beer and pub food, to allow events in a safe environment.
