Park View at Turf Moor when we are away at Blackburn, after that Black Horse Preston ok it's in town centre and its a taxi or bus away from Dumpdale but what a pub. In Manchester when playing either of Burnleys smaller less illustrious neighbours I like the Oyster Bar at top of Deansgate.

Mary D’s at Man City. Go after a few in the city centre with a few City mates so manage to get in as normally home fans only.

The Flag at Watford after the game is decent.

The Royal George after any London away but not the price of a pint!

God I miss away days :-(

Decent pint of Peroni in Euston flyer as well.

Uddersfield-The sportsman. Great ale and home made pies. And the urinals are made in Burnley, if thats your kind of thing.

Villa/Brum- The Wellington, no kids/knobheads and a secret-upstairs-outside-garden.

Liverpoo /Everton - Ship and Mitre, or slightly out of town, the philharmonic, always worth the effort.

Don’t know if it’s my favourite will have to think about that. But love barrow boy and banker by London Bridge whenever we play charlton or someone down that end of London.

Lots of nice ones up by Stamford bridge too. In fact I think all my favourite pubs are down London away games.

Brentford were the best fans in one of the pubs by their ground.

Newcastle has its share too.

In fact all Away pubs are good :lol:

Well except the Wetherspoons at stoke. That can sometimes get a bit lively.

There’s a good one by Aston Villa that does Thai food. Can’t remember the name but nice old pub with great beer and food.

Some decent ones outside Brighton but not near the ground.

Trying to remember last away pub I went in. Being designated driver it’s a long while since I did. Nipped in a whetherspoons before Everton game but wasn’t drinking. And was rammed.

Best ones are the ones like Brentford though where you can all mingle.

Real rites of passage boozer the Flying Scotsman. Couldn't believe my eyes when I first went in there. My older, more experienced mate had a bag of coins in preparation!

Wetherspoons in Middlesbrough is a good shout, called Isaac Wilson I think, lively place where both sets of fans mingle prior to march to the ground via ageing docks.

Me and my mate ended up in a pub in Chelsea we should never have gone near. How we got out alive will remain a constant mystery to me.... absolutely packed to the rafters with headhunters. We fronted it out and had a great afternoon.

Always manage to sneak into the peacock when we play leeds away... very partisan as is the Scarborough arms in the city.

Sadly, I quite enjoy ormskirk when en route to Scouse land.

Flying Scotsman.....first time I ever went in no one told me about it, a ladies voice from behind asked me for a pound and placed a pint pot in front of me, I thought it was for a raffle or football card until I turned around and saw what I was paying for LMFAO

This one has got me thinking.

The 8 Bells Putney Bridge (Fulham)

The Devonshire Cat (Sheffield)

The Honest Lawyer (Scunthorpe)

The Queen Adelaide (QPR)

Knott Bar (Manchester)

Ribs of Beef (Norwich)

Edit, how could I forget the Victory Club in South Norwood.

I think the Turkish Bar we entered at Half Time on the High street at Spurs is a Little Gem that no one as sussed out yet. Lovely Bottled beers. And good people.

Who’d have know? Last time I went to Arsenal, we walked the length of the Holloway Road trying to find a pint and no-one would let us in!

The Barton’s Arms is the Villa pub with the Thai food - great place for food and beer.

There's a pub in Peterborough, The Palmerston Arms it's approx 15-20 mins walk to London Road, loads of real ales, luscious hog roast to boot and the landlord is from Burnley.
It is without doubt the Dogs ********.

Whilst the Drayton is only 200 yards from the away end, it's a no-go if you want any decent/real ale! A better bet are the pubs near Finsbury Park Station.

Loads of pubs have away fans in Burnley centre.

How long as it been since you frequented any Burnley establishments on a match day?

Used to love The Cemetery in Rochdale. 6 pints of Moorhouse's Ultimate Owd Ale (7.8%) as a warm up can't be faulted.
