Glazebury, WA3 5LZ

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Grey Horse is a detached building located on the main road through Glazebury, just two minutes away from the famous garden centre of Bents providing an enormous amount of passing traffic. Glazebury is a quaint and affluent civil parish within Warrington with plenty of chimney pots along with established local and community led businesses. Situated just 9.6 miles outside of the centre of Warrington and 7.8 miles from the M62 providing links to Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales.

Pub Layout

On entering the Grey Horse you are welcomed by a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere with a modern shabby chic décor, a mixture of lighting, quarry tiled flooring, beams and exposed brick walls. The pub is made up from four different sections, to the left as you walk in there is a quaint cosy lounge area with carpeted flooring and a multi fuel burner, perfect for those chilly nights. An opening from the lounge opens to a continuation of this room with an exposed redbrick chimney breast and a number of tables and chairs. To the right you will find a games room with wooden flooring housing a pool table, darts board and seating areas, to the rear of this room you can access the male and ladies toilets along with a back door to the rear of the pub. The bar is central to the pub as you walk in and services all areas with a mixture of bar stools and fixed seating and tables. To the rear of the pub you will find a car park for 5/6 vehicles along with a wooden pagoda offering a smoking solution. Accessed through a separate entrance to the pub you will find a further room which has been recently rented out to a hairdresser. This room has been blocked off from the pub but could easily be opened back up to offer a further drinking area or a dining area if the licensee wanted to produce a food offer, the options are endless.

The Grey Horse is an ideally located community pub with a warm, welcoming atmosphere, original features along with a modern, in keeping décor. The pub currently offers a variety of lagers, ciders, spirits, casks and soft drinks. Around the pub you will find a number of televisions showing live sporting events along with pool table and darts board in the games room. Live entertainment always goes down well in the grey horse with a mixture of bands, duos and DJ’s on the weekend. The Grey horse has a small kitchen which could be utilised to produce a small food offer, especially during the day for those visiting the garden center.
