Rotherham Where to Drink

The main pub for away fans is the Bridge Inn, which is located quite close to Rotherham Railway Station (turn right out of the station and the pub is across the road on the left). Although basic inside, it does the job and normally has real ale on tap.

There are also a number of pubs in the nearby town centre, which are only a few minutes walk from the stadium. These include two Wetherspoon pubs; the Bluecoat on the Crofts and the Rhinoceros on Bridgegate. The Bluecoat does have more of a home feel about it, whilst closer to the railway station is the Rhinoceros. The Bluecoat is also listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Neil Calver a visiting Ipswich Town fan informs me; 'We went to the Rhinoceros, a Wetherspoons, which was friendly and had a nice mix of home and away fans inside.'

Colin Hall a visiting Leicester City fan adds; 'We discovered the Cutlers Arms on Westgate (turn right off the Main Street), which turned out to be a most welcoming and hospitable tavern. It had a mixture of home and away fans and sold beers from the local Chantry’s brewery'. Also nearby along Westgate is the New York Tavern, which also serves Chantry's beers. This pub is also listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

Alcohol is also available inside the stadium in the form of Fosters and John Smiths (Both £3.90 a pint), Heineken (£3.80 a bottle) Bulmers (£3.80 a bottle), plus Red, White and Rose wines (£4 small bottle).

If travelling by train and changing at Sheffield station, then on the station itself (Platform 1) is the Sheffield Tap which serves real ales and is run by the Thornbridge Brewery (please note though that no football colours are allowed

WHAT’S IT LIKE FOR AWAY FANS

Away fans are normally housed in the Mears Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 2,500 supporters can be accommodated. If only a small away following is expected then part of the Ben Bennett Stand (towards the Mears South Stand) is allocated instead. The stadium has electronic turnstiles meaning that you have to insert your ticket into a reader to gain admission. Cash is not accepted at the turnstiles and tickets for the away section can be purchased from the dedicated away ticket office at the back of the Morrison Stand.

As you would expect from a new stadium the facilities and views of the playing action are generally good. The angle of the Mears Stand is quite steep, meaning that it is a bit of a hike to get to the top. If you are a little unsteady on your feet then you may wish to consider getting a seat on one of the lower rows, as there are no handrails to hold onto. On the concourse, the food and drink available includes; a range of Pukka Pies (Chicken Balti, Meat & Potato, Steak & Kidney, Cheese & Onion, all £3.40), Sausage Rolls (£2.90), Hot Dogs (£4) and Cheeseburgers (£4). These are available from two refreshment kiosks on the concourse. I noticed that most fans tended to head to the kiosk closest to the entrance turnstiles, resulting in queues at this outlet whilst the other had few or no customers.

The stewards were generally laid back and friendly and I thought it was a nice touch that smokers were allowed to go outside the stadium for a cigarette at half time. There is also a large television screen on the concourse showing Sky Sports. My only real criticism was that I could hardly make out a single word that the stadium announcer said and that the bottom of my pie was burnt! Plus there didn't seem that there were any barriers in place at the front of the away section to prevent away fans entering the home sections. I know that this is normally not a worry but in a more highly charged game....

Unlike most new stadiums which are situated way out of town in the middle of nowhere, the New York Stadium is located close to the town centre This not only means good transport links but also a fair choice of eating and drinking outlets
