Serious question, which one? Presumably, there will be some decent ales on.
Ok, we normally keep mum in decent pubs (like on Sat) or we get everyone trying for taxis  Wink but...
Albion
Fairfield Rd
KT1 2PY.

Out of Kingston Station, past Spoons and head for park. It's less than 10 minutes walk. Used to be utter garbage pub but now around eight ales, ten crafts and ciders on.
Bit on the snooty side but nowt they were going to do last season with around ten of us buying ales!

From there, around a 7-10 min walk to the ground. Other pubs in Kingston centre ok-ish, but hardly worth the extra walk away from Norbiton tbh!

Canbury Arms and Black Horse as you get towards Norbiton station, though not sure if I've been to either!  Wink

Serious question, Rob. Have you ever thought of writing a book about away day pubs? Those that are decent and those to avoid. You have so much knowledge about real ales etc that the world needs to know about it in my opinion.

Robs started to write a book on the subject on many occasions, the issue being he always leaves his work in a pub somewhere and can't remember which one because he was p1ssed!

Really - this is disgraceful behaviour! I heard it was more to do about arguments on grammar! Often came to fisticuffs!

Actually, it's twats walking into the pub asking for change to park their car (after extensive research on footie forums) that lead to (select worst expression of your choice);

Must admit, the football ground guides are generally pathetic! Written by the clueless brigade who seem to only know/mention the nearest Fosters serving outlet..."Frankie & Benny's at Sixfields serves beer to away fans..." blah blah snooze!

The great Rob Marshall provided me with the inspiration back in the nineties, in the much missed WALOC!

I note England rugby are playing in the 6-Nations on the same as day as this not so far away in Twickenham. Hopefully find a decent pub that isn't too populated with Egg Chasing fans.

That's Waterloo off the list then!   Grin
Yes, last season was England v Scotland at Twickenham (iirc). Didn't affect Kingston, Norbiton or Clapham (after) tbf. Waterloo was early doors, so only small numbers there too!

England v Wales kicks off 1h 45m later than our game so I'd imagine that this would mean that both sets of fans would largely miss each other.

Heading for a sellout. I bought two tickets earlier and there's less than 200 left. Great effort!

It would be great to sell out. While it's arguably the worst away end in the division (yes I've been to Gillingham), it's still a London away day and ticket prices are reasonable.

Under the section with the low roof you can generate quite a noise so it's not all bad.

That is true to be fair. And with a well oiled away end, it should be a vocal affair Grin

They have only lost 2 twice in 8 games. We do have a good record against them but still got a bad feeling.

2-0 Wombles and I fear Hass will be in trouble..
