Mentioned this before - taking seven work colleagues to watch Brentford - Cheltenham. Someone recommended the Griffin pub as decent place to drink - is there a pub/bar a bit further away from the ground that won't be as packed near kick-off time that anyone can recommend.

Any info much appreciated.

Cheers

If you like real ale try the Magpie and Crown in the High Street. No food though.

Thanks for those replies guys, any pub near South Ealing tube station as most of my colleagues will be getting off at this station and those pubs mentioned above are a fair treck.

Walking down South Ealing Road towards GP you go past the Ealing Park Tavern. More of a "gastropub" these days, but excellent range of real ales and other drinks and good for a couple of hours.

Go left out of South Ealing tube and within five mins you come to the New Inn (almost opposite TVU). Nice enough place and you can catch a bus to GP.

Alternatively go one stop further to Northfields tube and take your pick from the Spinning Wheel, Duffy's or The Plough.

Finally, Man Yoo vs. Liverpool kicks off at 12.30. Recommend you find somewhere with a TV to enjoy the action before heading to GP. The 3 Northfields pubs all have Sky.

The Pub on the right hand side en-route "The Dining Rooms" (?) sells some decent beer - did it used to be called the Penny Flyer or is Bee H confused ?

The restaurant is top notch btw one and all :yes:

Indeed, The Ealing Park Tavern used to be called the Penny Flyer. Before that, however, it was called the Ealing Park Tavern. I'm not sure it's too keen on football fans, though.

They didn't like what happened to Man City in there a few years ago:cool:

I agree with the Magpie & Crown, it doesnt get to many fans as its at the far end of the High St opposite the Magistrates Court.

Great real ale and real cider at a good price. It was my local for years.

Well we decided to shack up at Finegan's Wake which is pretty close to Ealing Broadway at the end of the day. Nice place, food was OK, excellent place to watch footy on T.V witnessed the demolition of Liverpool.

Main Event - well they all actually and suprisingly enjoyed the game, four goals, two red-cards, not bad entertainment though the first half was embarrasingly one-sided. They may come again next season (if I bribe them !!).

Anyway a gr8 day out !!! enjoyed by all.
