With a couple of big away games coming up for Hereford United as they begin their League One and League Cup campaigns we thought we'd have a quick look at some of the pubs near the respective grounds to try and recommend some pre-match watering holes...Leyton Orient Away - Saturday, 9th August 2008The Birbeck Tavern
Serves a fine selection of ales and also has a lovely beer garden. Usually frequented by friendly Orient fans on match days so could well be the ideal place for some pre and post-match banter. A couple of minutes walk from the station - head down Goodall Road, then Langthorne RoadThe Northcote
Another friendly and reasonably priced pub and a regular with football fans. Less than half a mile from the ground - just head down Warren Road on your way from the tube station to the ground.Leyton Orient Supporters Club
Located in the West Stand of the ground. Away supporters are welcome though there may be a small charge on the door. A fine selection of ales available and even comes with a CAMRA recommendation.
Best Avoided: The Lord ClydeCrystal Palace Away - Tuesday, 12th August 2008Clifton Arms, Clifton Road
The nearest pub to Selhurst Park. Turn right out of the station and take the 3rd left. A large Victorian Pub known for high quality ales. Away fans are only admitted if they turn up early.The Railway Telegraph, Bridgestock Road
Popular with away fans. From the station cross at the zebra crossing and turn right. Pub is 100 yards down this road.The Alliance, Station Road
Located by the clock tower this small but friendly pub can get crowded but has a choice of real ales.
For the less adventurous: A Wetherspoons is directly opposite the Thornton Heath tube station - Always a safe bet!
