Been a new ground I have little experience on whats what so a search on the internet and talking to a few in the know has given me the following info. However if any Swans fans want to help out with some comments please let us know.
There are a few pubs within walking distance of the stadium, but with the stadium being new it is unclear yet as to which (if any) will become the favourite amongst away fans. Around a five minute walk away from the visiting supporters turnstiles is the Station Inn pub in Hamilton Street, which is located in the area across the A4067 (Neath Road), opposite to the stadium. Go up Station Link Road (crossing over the railway line) and then turn left into Hamilton Street and this smallish pub, with a large screen showing Sky Sports, is on the right. A little further on is the larger Globe pub, which was welcoming to Fulham supporters in a pre-season friendly. This bar serves real ale and snacks and is located in Mysydd Road. Again go up Station Link Road, passing Hamilton Street on the left. Station Link Road runs into Mysydd Road. Follow Mysydd Road around to the left and the pub is situated further down on the left hand side. There is also the Coopers Arms which is around a ten minute walk away from the stadium. This is located near to a roundabout on the A4067, going back towards the M4. The Railway pub in Siloh Road is best avoided by away fans.
Those arriving by train may find it better to drink in the city centre, such as SA1, Yates, the Bank Statement and the No Sign Bar (in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide). There is also a large Wetherspoons outlet situated on the Kingsway.
However been a Sunday and all it is an option to sick to the ground facilities. Alcohol is in the form of Carling and Worthington are served within the stadium, all costing £2.50 per pint. The Club open the turnstiles two hours before kick off, so that fans have the option to eat & drink within the stadium itself.
Cheers heres that link again
