We love the Greystones for its great selection of Thornbridge real ales and atmospheric live music venue, The Backroom.
We have seen many a gig here and love the small nature of the venue which allows the audience to be up close and personal to the musicians, many of whom seem to love playing here. Yes it can be hot and sweaty, but this is a small price to pay for the great atmosphere - far preferable to corporate stadium/arena gigs where you feel like you are watching it on the telly....and probably are most of the time!
Highlights have been Wilko Johnson, Martin Stephenson and the Daintees, Norman Watt Roy, John Ottway, John Renbourn, John Bramwell (don't know why most seem to be called John!) to name but a few.
Gig ticket prices are reasonable £12 - £15, beers are fab and only £1 for a pint of lime and soda if you are driving.
