Hereford United away trip pubs - Southend 13/09/2008
The Bulls are on the road again this Saturday - this time making their way down to Southend (Pictured above is the beautiful Southend Pier). Many thanks to ExLandlord over at the Bulls Banter Forum who has recommended the following pubs to travelling Hereford fans:
"The nearest Pub to accept visitors is The Golden Lion just up the A127 from the car park. It does get busy but the service is good and it has Sky TV on big screens although it is a bit of a fizzy beer outlet.
The nearby Spread Eagle is mainly a home Pub but usually accepts well-behaved visitors and sports a selection that includes London Pride, Spitfire, Highgate and Bombardier. Going back to the traffic lights, you will find The Blue Boar with Tetleys and Green King IPA. The Nelson in North Road may be worth a look as it has Sky and a beer garden.
A mile from the ground on London Road is The Trading Room, a converted Bank that reportedly serves Courage Directors and Ridleys Old Bob along with decent food.
The delightful Golden Mile seafront offers a multitude of premises including The Liberty Belle, which does a Real Ale or two although nothing of particular note. Close to the Pier, you will find a gynormous Wetherspoons trading as The Last Post. It offers the usual fare including Spitfire, Directors and Theakstons Best as well as several guests and TWO CIDERS (probably fizzy).
Please note, The Shrimpers Bar at the ground is now members only and no alcohol is served inside the stadium although refreshments are available from a cafe type building behind the North Stand."
