Coach & Horses, Greasby, Wirral


The Coach and Horses is a very old pub, definitely in business in 1832 (named on the Bryant map of that year) possibly dating as far back as 1725.

Lowry refers to the pub in his short story 'Enter One In Sumptuous Armour'; "I noticed the pubs longingly. ..in Greasby, the Coach and Horses. I was sorry to be leaving the pubs behind though I had never entered one." (Pg. 232).
