Football ground guide for away support at Newcastle

The Newcastle fans are generally welcoming to visitors and even bars located at or very close to the stadium such as Nine (Shearers Bar) or the Strawberry, will normally admit away fans. Also close by is the Sandman Hotel inside which is the Shark Club Sports. St James' Park is only a few minutes walk from the city centre where there are plenty of bars to choose from. Most away fans tend to favour some of the pubs opposite and around Newcastle Railway Station. The ‘A Head Of Steam’ 'The Newcastle Tap' and ‘The Lounge’ are all popular with visiting supporters, but some of these bars will only admit fans if colours are covered and none of them admits children. The Head of Steam is also listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Nearby is a former Wetherspoons pub called the Union Rooms, which is under new ownership. This pub is happy to admit away fans and is family friendly. Please note that the Gotham Town and the Victoria Cornet pubs located across from the railway station do not admit visiting supporters.

On my last visit, I went to the Bodega on Westgate Road and had no problems. This pub is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and had a friendly atmosphere. Closer to the ground (and just around the corner from China Town which is good for a cheap lunch) is the Newcastle Arms on St Andrews Street. This pub is also known for its real ale, but unless you arrive very early and are not wearing colours you are unlikely to gain entrance. Just down the road is 'The Back Page' bookshop, which is an oasis of football books, DVD's, programmes and memorabilia.

Alcohol is also served within the ground in the form of Carling (500ml bottle £4.50), Coors (330ml bottle £4.40), Kingstone Press Cider (500ml bottle £4.40), Kingstone Press Wild Berry Cider (500ml bottle £4.70), Wine (White, Red or Rose 187ml bottle £5), Gin and Tonic (Can £5.50) and Jack Daniels and Coke (Can £6).

Dont over do the drinking before the game because the 9000 steps up to the away end tests your stamina :lol:

If throwing beer over each other and singing about how much you hate totnum is appealing then get in the ground a bit earlier and join in with our supporters in the bar in the away end

My one and only game these days (unless/until Sunderland, Boro and/or possibly Leeds come back up) - it's on my doorstep and I have zero inclination to travel down to the Emirates. Might as well get it done early on with some decent weather and a few beers. Will probably have a few beers with my mates from work before (home ST holders).

In terms of pubs, the Strawberry is a complete dive - avoid. Shark Bar is one of those unashamed overpriced massive sports bars which is sterile and crowded, but if you don't mind being pushed about by some fat Geordies and paying well over the odds for shit lager then it's right next to the ground. Would rather have a few pints in the ground personally if being close is your main priority.

There are a few good pubs near the station if you're coming in by train - Head of Steam and the Centurion is surprisingly good for a train station pub with a decent mix of fans (albeit not the most lively).

Rosie's Bar would be the best shout in my view - few minutes' walk away, decent pub and they'll happily let you stand outside if the weather's good. Tilley's Bar is also a good pub - small but good beer and good service, and again plenty of room to spill outside - busy enough on a matchday for atmosphere without being too packed to move or get served. To be honest just walk from the train station towards the ground and the city is packed with pubs which are all pretty welcoming to football fans.
