There is not much in the way of drinking outlets close to the stadium, so it is mainly the case for visiting fans to drink in Central London or en route. Alcohol though is served inside the stadium, although not cheap at around £4.80 for a pint of Amstel, or there are bottles of Fosters, Strongbow or Bulmers (all £4.60), Smirnoff Ice (£4.80) or small bottles of wine (£5.10).
There are a number of pubs in the centre of Stratford itself, but nearly all of these have declared themselves for home fans only. John Ellis a visiting Leicester City fan informs me; 'Having been turned away from the Wetherspoons pub called the Goldengrove, the doormen pointed us in the direction of the Goose pub at 78 Broadway, where we were made welcome. There was a mixture of home and away fans inside and families were also allowed in. Adam adds; 'Before the game we went to the Hamilton Hall Wetherspoons pub at Liverpool Street Station before journeying onto Stratford and the Stadium. This pub has been popular with fans visiting London for a game over a number of years'.
There are a number of eating places and restaurants within the nearby Westfield Shopping Centre that also serve alcohol. My pick of these is the 'Cow' on Westfield Avenue, but there is also a bar inside Aspers Casino, as well as the Holiday Inn, which are all situated on the Westfield complex. Just outside Stratford International Station there is the 'Tap East' which brews its own beers. Whilst near Hackney Wick station there are two bars that also are attached to breweries, The CRATE and the 'Howling Hops' are both housed next door to one another in an old warehouse complex. Whilst just a little further along the canal from these brew pubs (in the opposite direction to the stadium ) is Mason & Company which is a Craft Beer and Italian Food outlet.
