Away Day Pubs - Chesterfield v Hereford

Hereford United are due to visit Chesterfield's brand new B2net stadium on Saturday so we thought we'd ask some Chesterfield fans over at the Bob's Board forum for some away friendly pubs.

DalekPete says there are a number of pubs within comfortable walking distance of the ground ranging from the modern food-based pubs through to the more traditional venues offering a choice of real ales. As its still early days for the new stadium there are no official 'away' pubs yet but most places should be accomodating.

Keith emailed us to suggest The Donkey Derby which is the largest pub near the stadium. This is mainly a food pub but welcomes football supporters. As an added bonus you can park at the pub too - usually this costs £5.00 but if you eat there they'll apparently refund your fiver.

Closer to the Stadium, Keith also mentions the Rose and Crown but this seems to be mainly for home fans on match days.

DJS recommends The Derby Tup as a must visit pub. Its located just 400 yards north of the ground and features a selection of real ales at the bar. It should be open from mid-day and is a traditional drinkers pub but Keith warns it can get a little cramped.

Update 19/08/2010 - Hilary from the Derby Tup has emailed us to say they'll have 13 real ales plus lager on tap on Saturday. Also, although they don't serve food everyone is welcome to bring in food purchased from other outlets.

Further along is the Travellers rests and just past Lidl is The Red Lion which might also be worth a look.

Several other visiting fans have also recommended The Rutland. This features in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and is ideal for those travelling by train. Also serving good food, The Rutland is located in the city centre just next to Chesterfield's famous crooked spire.

Many thanks for all the contributions from the forum and for Keith's helpful email. If you are travelling up on Saturday and visit a pub don't forget to send us your reviews.
