Away Day Pubs - Northampton v Hereford

Hereford United travel to Northampton this Saturday hoping to build on the excellent home display against Port Vale. We asked the forum members at the Hotel End Northampton Town forum what their recommended pubs for away fans visiting Sixfields are...

Coolcat suggests The Malt Shovel (pictured left). This is handy for those getting the train at just a 5 minute walk from the station. Its located opposite the Carlsbery brewery but is an oasis for real ales including local Great Oakley ales as well as an array of guest ales. The food is good there too. Its a couple of miles from the stadium but is definitely worth checking out - the bus service is pretty handy both for here and the stadium. There's also a decent Wetherspoons in the city centre called The Cordwainer which has a pretty good beer garden.

As you follow the route from the station towards Sixfields you'll travel along St James Road and Weedon Road and past a selection of pubs. Of these Coolcat says the Thomas a Becket (centre) is a decent shout with Sky TV, a pool table and the usual selection of lagers and bitters. Along the same road is The Foundry Tavern which might also be worth a look but Coolcat suggests The Rover is probably one to avoid.

On the Sixfields complex itself is the Sixfields Tavern (right) which Abington Cobbler says has recently been admitting away fans with the Old Orleans or the Megabowl as a backup if not.

Lets hope it'll be another improved performance following the thankfully short Davey days. It might be Jamie Pitman's last match in charge and it'd be great for him to go out on a winning note. The last couple of weeks have shown that Jamie may well have a future as a manager - he certainly gets the players motivated and playing in the same energetic way as he used to play himself.
