Arriving into New St about midday.

Not done St Andrews before but been told to drink near station not the ground.

Anyone know a good one in the centre? Where we all going?

Cheers

For the discerning Cider drinker, head out on to New Street and up the hill towards the Birmingham Museum. On the left near the top of the hill you'll find the Post Office Vaults. It's a single doorway off the street and down a flight of stairs. They normally have between 20 and 30 ciders on tap and bottle. 

Other good Birmingham central pubs are The Wellington, The Old Joint Stock or The Sun on the Hill.

When we played them in the League Cup a  couple of years back we went in the hotel about a 10 minute walk away (Ibis?) There were a fair few in there ,but then, we do take millions away :)

I would ask whoever told you to drink near the station which pub they advise

As for "Where we all going?" . . . . . I assume that you are travelling alone, otherwise this is a bit sad !!

Are there any pubs near the ground that accept away fans? 

Cricketers Arms behind Morrisons is ok, busy on matchday, fine with away fans.

I don't believe The Briar Rose accepts football fans anymore. They didn't last season or the one before, may have changed though.

I work in Birmingham. 

Head of steam is a glorious place. But I don't know what their match day rules are. Same goes for the rest of the pubs. New pub just opened opposite head of steam called flight club, literally only a fortnight ago. These two are on the same road is the trocadero.

Post office vaults is a great shout, as is the old joint stock.

The Anchor inn is a good traditional pub it's on the corner of the coach station. Had a great time in there last time we went. If you walk up 100 metres and you come across the white swan and then after that another 100 metres, turn left you come to the spotted dog. Nice little pub crawl if they're still open.

Tickets haven’t been delivered, it’ll be fine to collect them at Birmingham won’t it?

If you ordered them in time they should be delivered, but if not then you'll be able to collect them.

I'd email the ticket office, as they've usually let me know where I can collect if I ordered too late

The only cider they got in the head of steam is stowford press at £4.40. Some of the beers are a bit pricey aswell.

Ooohhh, don't let them hear you say that. Hahaha 

Hopefully they'll arrive at New Street then just jump on the local train or tram to the hawthorns. Maybe the police will escort them there.

Tbh that was a partly jocular style post. 😆

However it is the case that people who come on and ask about away pubs etc- they could well be police- the surprise might be if none were.

Ok Ladies and Gentlemen

I have done a quick dash around some of the pubs around New Street and asked the staff what their policy is and the ciders on offer.

 

Head of Steam - No colours ideally but door staff will show discretion. As alluded to above, they do Stowford Press and they have a guest cider on cask in the back. Plus some fruit cider which i've never heard of.

Flight Club - Darts pub. No Colours at all, no large groups. They do Orchard Thieves and Bulmers

Trocodero - All shirts fine, no bother to them, cheap, but lacking in cider quality

Sun on the Hill - Thatchers Gold and Haze galore, but his door staff are a tad more picky but as long as you've not had a skinful before hand, you should be ok

Briar Rose - Girl i spoke to said they have no intention of serving anyone going to any football matches. Whether they have some Minority Report esque precogs in their basement i do not know, but how they plan on implementing that policy is beyond me. Ignore. not worth your hassle.

The Wellington - No under 18's (strictly), but happy to have all fans in there. Hogans on draft and a few guest ciders on offer. It's an ale pub.

the Square Peg - Plenty of ciders including Angry Orchard, all fans wearing colours welcome.

The Shakespeare - first pub you see on exiting New Street. Forgot to go in to ask. Will ask them tomorrow but i imagine home fans only.

 

If you want something near the ground then google is your friend, i aint traveling all the way out there in my lunch break

Thank you, Mr Batman. Very kind of you to share this information 👍. Looks like The Sun on the Hill could be the winner for me :drunk2:

The Railway right outside the station decent boozer. Don’t go to Briar Rose 1) it’s shit and 2) you won’t get in.

Cricketers Arms if you’re close to ground, otherwise around digbeth. bull ring tavern is a superb pub.

Remember a good following of City fans at The Old Crown, Digbeth two years ago. Away fans were welcome....does anyone know if this is still the case?

Really??  It wasn't when I lived that way .... 

Well I’ve been to Birmingham 3 times and 3 times I’ve seen the visiting supporters who were at the Hawthorns that day. No trouble should I add!

They will most likely be drinking in the same places.

Sorry fellas, due to the train issues I didn't have a chance to ask the Shakespeare, the old joint stock or any others. 

Safe trip up here.
