Bromwich Albion FC
There are no pubs
for away fans that are particularly close to the ground. Huw Morris,
a West Brom fan, recommends 'The Vine' which is about a 15-20
minute walk from the ground. From Junction 1 of the M5 turn left
towards West Bromwich town centre (opposite direction to the
ground). Take the first left into Roebuck Street. The Vine is
down on the left. You can also street park in this area and walk to
the ground. This pub also does Indian food and has
an indoor tandoori barbeque (from 1pm on Saturdays), plus has a beer
garden with children's play area. Barbara Osborne a visiting
Newcastle United fan adds; 'The Vine from the outside looked like
any small corner boozer, but inside it was quite large and it was
fairly easy to get served. It had a good mix of home and away
If you continue towards West Bromwich
going over a small mini roundabout, then on the right just before
the lights is the Desi Junction pub. This Asian run pub does an
excellent 'Balti Buffet'. For £4.95 per adult, you can each as much
as you like and I found the food to be pretty good. The buffet is
available all day on a Saturday and you can wash it down with a pint
of Cobra beer.
Sean Mowat a visiting Sheffield United supporter adds; 'As
you pass the ground on the right on the main Birmingham Road.
Carry on about another half a mile and there is a pub on the
right set back off the road called the Royal Oak. We've been
in the last two times we've visited WBA. The beer
is okay and they also serve Asian food (try the chicken
kebabs!). It had a friendly atmosphere'.
Alcohol is also available within
the ground (on my last visit £2.30 for a can of Carling or
Worthington), along with the delicious 'Football's Famous Chicken Balti Pie' (£2.20).
