Tends to open later than other pubs in Beeston, which makes it good for finishing off a crawl. Beer is fairly varied, but pretty expensive. Lots of live music and open mic nights. Seems to attract a 'Rock-Soc' kind of crowd, which isn't necessarily a bead thing.

The Grey Hound's gone from a good venue to a great venue.
Paul the landlord has great taste in music and beer. They have about five real ales, the best by far is the Absolution or ASBO as it's become known, at 5.? abv it's plain to see why.
Tuesday nights open mic night was brilliant (the night I visited). I've seen some great bands there and the Nottingham Blues Society have put on a few good turns.
Good beer and free music what more do you want?

A grim dark hole on Beeston High Road. Has live music regularly of the rock grunge genre so is popular with students - probably great if you like that sort of thing.

I have sat back and watched with sadness as this venue has fallen into the cltuches of the cliques.

The venue as a whole is by far the best in the area with a high standard of bands...(Can't fault them on this point).

The open mike night (every Tuesday) is bay far the best in the whole of Nottingham, Very friendly and always up for a laugh.

The jam session (every Sunday afternoon) has fallen to the clique brigade.
I have watched with great sadness as the clique set in.
Very unfair allocation of stage time to musicians not in their clique, Sometimes resulting in many people who have waited all afternoon to play not being allowed.

The only saving grace to this Sunday farce is a very talented man (Whom I have noted has been given a very bad deal) who will play with any musician (no matter how bad they are) He still holds the value of fun to music ratio.
I do believe there is a little jealousy towards him by other so called musicians as he has the ability to comunicate with the crowd and at the same time make his fellow musicians feel special while on the stage.
He deserves better than these clowns.

The house band in contrast will only back those in their clique and if they are unfortunate enough to be placed in a position where they have to play with someone who is far more talented then they are they always make the mistake in trying to out-play or drown-out the guest act.

You once had it all going for you.....Do not end up like the Running horse by letting these arogant fools wreck your venue.....
You pay them so you tell them what is needed if they do not earn their pay then replace them.(Too many people are not attending already)(Do something before it is too late).
