What sort of places would you be looking for?

 

Those you listed sound fine as we are into our real ales. I've been to The Anvil before. That will be the Allgates brewery place won't it?. Great place, but a bit full on match days (only to be expected).

Lets do booze now the curry has settled.

 

Best real ale pubs, near the stations on Wallgate, Berkley which has multiple TV screens and a huge projected screen so for those arriving intime to watch Australia get smashed by the USA you can get a good pint, eats and watch the game.

 

Just up the road you have the Raven, good selection of real ale two TV screens but usually little or no volume, grub wise traditional simple pub fayre.

 

The Anvil, Hallgate behind the Parish Church next to bus station. Renowned pub with its own brewery across the road next to the church. Always good for beer, two TVs always with sound. Tradiional boozer, food = crisps and nuts.

 

Worth a visit is the John Bull, no TV so if you want to watch the game time it right to be elsewhere, several real ales and well known for its juke box. If your lucky and they haven't sold out you may get one of their specialist pies.

 

New kid on the block, Docherty's (formally The Charles Dickens) only opened last weekend, good selection of real ales in a modern setting.

 

Weatherspoons, Moon Under the Water, must be the worst of their outlets in the whole country, it really is dire.

 

 

Which of the above will you be visiting ?

Will any bars at the ground be open before and after the game?

For anybody who:

1. Has lots of time AND
2. Is prepared to be 'adventurous' AND
3. 'Really, really' likes real ale

The Crown At Worthington (the outskirts of Standish) is around a 15-minute car journey from the DW. It's won a few CAMRA awards over the years.

Probably Berkley and Raven and then the Anvil up to leaving time for the game.

Better still is The Silver Tally in the same direction but closer to the Standish Motorway exit at Shevinton Moor.

We used to go to The Crown so often that we never even tried The Silver Tally. I used to go in, many years ago, when it was the Forester's.

just be careful with the staff at the Berkley, you might end up in a fight.

Totally different pub now. 

 

The only resemblance is the address.

It's a shame that we didn't try it then. I no longer live in the area but I'll check it out when I'm back.

So were the Police but I don't think it means you can blame Sting.

We ended up in The Raven, staying there until we left for the match as the beer was good and it wasn't too crowded.

Good call, we went in pre-match.

 

The pub had been closed for a few years and re-opened about 12 months ago.

 

They've done a nice job.
