Away Day Pubs - Stockport County v Hereford

We've asked the Stockport fans over at their Vital Football forum for their tips on the best pubs for Bulls fans to visit before Saturday's match at Edgeley Park...

Forum member Cropped was very helpful giving a whole list of pubs to visit. He drinks in The Armoury (top left) which is just 5 minutes walk from Edgeley Park on Shaw Heath - they serve the locally brewed Robinsons beer and well-behaved away fans are welcome.

Another minute away is The Florist which Cropped also recommends - again Robinson's beers of the highest standard are sold here.

On Castle Street which is just North of the ground is a selection of pubs. The Pineapple is probably best avoided but The Robert Peel on Castle Street is one where away fans sometimes go but the beer there isn't for the purists. Likewise the Prince Albert is popular but the choice of ales is limited.

The Grapes on Castle St is OK but isn't as welcoming as some other pubs. At the bottom of Castle St is the Royal Oak which is a decent pub with good beer.

Cropped's favourite pubs is The Crown (bottom right) under the viaduct on Heaton Lane which has 14 real ales. This is a good 10-15 minute walk from the ground but worth checking out. The Magnet (bottom left) on the A6 usually has at least 10 real ales on and is just up the road from the Crown.

Kid Charlemagne suggests The Blossoms on the A6 with the previously mentioned Florist and Armoury making up a pub crawl to Edgeley Park. The post match atmosphere in these pubs is usually pretty good and with the last train back being at 20.39 why not spend some time either celebrating another great away win or drowning your sorrows depending on the result!
