Giants Meet At:

Good Drinking At:

"There is now a fans bar on match days located at the corner of the west and south stands open to home and away fans before and after the game. Usually they show an old game before kick off and a rerun of the day's Sky game after." - It had some real ale in 2013.

"If you're looking for a decent pint then the Grapes hotel on Liverpool about a 20 minute walk to the stadium is your best bet.
"If you want more of an atmosphere then the next pub down towards the stadium is The Unicorn its where most go for a pint and sing song (Usually after the game)."

There is now a pub on the site - the Barley Farm.
