Saddlers don't give two Hooters

Saddlers don't give two Hooters

Guys when Walsall visit Nottingham Hooters bar always seems to be on the adgenda, and this season seems to be no different. Lets face it there are more than two good reasons why we should.

However the Police are also now there on match days (dirty minded so and so's) oh sorry I meant on duty so as they say in Hill street blues 'lets be careful out there'

The Magpies are trying desperatly to drum up as much support as they can as they search for three points to strenghten there play off push. So there may well be a lot of people about and on previous trips some of the bouncers and locals have not taken too kindly to our singing etc. So perhaps we all should go to the forest supporters club and tell them we are comming back for 6 points next season.

There are a few pubs around the ground that let away supporters in and are quite friendly and serve good real ale. For one, on the main London Road, just across from the hump back bridge over the canal, is the newly refurbished and renamed Globe. A comfortable open-plan pub with good food and 5 ever-changing real ales (children can use the upstairs room).

Another is just the other side of Trent Bridge is the Southbank, the Globe's sister pub. It also serves excellent food and has sport on the numerous televisions; three real ales are offered here including one from the tiny local Mallards brewery.

Just across from the front of the station down Queensbridge Road is the 'Vat and Fiddle' situated next door to the Castle Rock micro-brewery. It offers ten real ales and hot and cold food. Children are welcome.

At the far end of Meadow Lane away from the ground, you will find the Magpies pub. Named after Notts County's nickname it is of course painted red and depicts two magpies on its sign.

Another recomendation is the 'Trent Navigation' and the 'Trent Bridge Inn'. Chris claims 'The food is locally renowned, especially the pies!'

If you are arriving by train and have a bit of time on your hands, then I would suggest that you check out the 'Olde Trip To Jerusalem`. This historic pub dates back to the 12th century and some of the rooms are 'cave like` having been carved out of the rock that Nottingham Castle is situated upon. Add real ale, food and a small beer garden, then it is certainly worth a visit. It is about a five minute walk away from the train station. As you come out of the station turn right. At the top of the road turn left and then take the second right into Castle Road. Just tucked away on the left is the pub.

So plenty to choose from, other sites have got there favorites (right Neil) and of course there is the recommendations from sites such as the internet football guide, to whom I thank for there help.

Just seen this on UTS hope you don't mind Neil, I thought I would pass it on.... We have received a tip-off that Mark, landlord of the Trent Bridge Inn, known to the locals as the “TBI” (right next door to Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, 3-4 minutes from the County ground) -is a Walsall fan, a few of his Walsall fan mates will be visting the pub before the match, but he’d be over the moon if some fellow saddlers were in there before the promotion winning game tomorrow. The pub is on the corner of Radcliffe Road and London Road -there’s loads of street parking near there (on the embankment, near the river.
