GROSVENOR ARMS
later the "YARD"


Location:- Grosvenor Yard

Brewery or Owner:-2019 - Greene,King


The Grosvenor Arms, inexplicably re-named "The Yard", is tucked away just inside the Grosvenor Yard's High Street entrance. It seems it may well have originated as the kitchen and staff quarters for the house fronting the High Street. An old publican stated that there were definite signs of a bricked up "tunnel" in the cellars
