Saddler on Tour -Beer Guide

Saddler on Tour -Beer Guide

Not one of the best grounds for a pre match drink, we find out what visiting fans feel like when they come to Bescot

As the ground is on the edge of an industrial estate, there aren't many pubs around. Perhaps the nearest pub to the Causeway Stadium, is the Hourglass in Sands (about a 15 minute walk, from the end of the road up to the ground). Away fans are normally okay in small groups.However if the locals consider this a big game then all this might change.

If arrived early enough at the ground you should be able to go into the Supporters Club , which cost £2 to enter. The Club is one of the suites at the far end of the Main Stand. Although I have not been in there myself I am told it is spacious room with 2 bars and food. The atmosphere is usually relaxed and friendly with both home and away supporters'.

In recent seasons a marquee has been erected behind the away end, which contains a bar serving draught beers. It has been specifically provided for away supporters. However I am uncertain if it is there this weekend. Unfortunatly this brings back bad memories of Slough!!!!
