Away fans’ pub guide – Aston Villa

Posted in  Football by Vincent on the September 9th, 2010

Scared about your rickety full backs facing Aston Villa‘s Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonlahor? Follow our pub guide and settle your nerves with a drink beforehand.

The Bartons Arms

Alcohol is not available in the away end at Villa Park, so if you want a drink it’ll have to be outside the ground. Fortunately there are some great pubs not too far away, in particular The Bartons Arms. A 15 minute walk from the ground, it is one of the best pubs in Birmingham, located in a Grade II Listed building. The range of Oakham cask ales is excellent, as is the food.

The Witton Arms

Another option is Witton Arms (formerly The Cap and Gown), which is very accommodating to away fans – on match days, the pub is split in two and away supporters get a dedicated entrance. There is, however, an entry charge of £2.
