Brownlee brothers have Horsforth pub named after them
7:15pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
A Bradford company has honoured champion triathletes the Brownlee brothers with a pub in their name.
The former Grey Horse in Long Row, Horsforth, has become the Brownlee Arms in tribute to Olympic champion Alistair and Jonathan, who won bronze.
The pub has been renamed by its new owners twin brothers Chris and Nick Green, who run Apperley Bridge-based Greencliffe Taverns, and its rebranding has been greeted with amusement by the Brownlees, who grew up in Horsforth.
Chris said he had spoken to their agent about the plan and had been told that Alistair and Jonathan felt honoured.
He added: “Nick’s daughter Harriet met Johnny when he was at a signing. She told Johnny that her dad was naming a pub after him. They already knew about it and they think it’s quite funny.”
