Everton away fans’ pub guide – Drinking near Goodison Park

Posted in  Football by Vincent on the April 2nd, 2011

You might not believe it, but it is just two years since Liverpool was European Capital of Culture. If you’re interested in getting your own taste of Scouse life, Everton-style, look no further than the following away-friendly pubs on your Everton away day.

The Head of Steam

Fans visiting Goodison tend to recommend pubs in Liverpool city centre, rather than those nearer the stadium. Having said that, the pubs nearest Lime Street station are best avoided, with one or two exceptions. The Head of Steam, located at the station itself, is away-friendly and CAMRA-listed. It also has a big screen for matches.

The Thomas Frost

A few pubs closer to the stadium are worth mentioning. As a member of the vast Wetherspoons chain, The Thomas Frost offers a reliable and respectable range of beers, ciders and other drinks. On match days it can be rather busy; queues of 10 minutes or more are common.

The Spellow

The Spellow is a fairly ordinary but pleasant pub with two bars, serving a few bitters and a few lagers. Sneakily, prices go up on match days.
