This Wetherspoon pub is named after the Franciscan monks, known as Grey Friars from the colour of their habits, who founded a nearby friary in the early 13th century.
The friary was founded around 1220. It gave its name to Friargate, but was actually in Marsh Lane (formerly Friars Lane), between Lower Pitt Street and Ladywell Street. The Franciscans, or Grey Friars, are also remembered in the name of this pub.
