Local "safe" pub for Millwall game?

Post by bigbobb » Mon Jan 15, 2024 12:28 am

As unlikely as it may sound, I met a German QPR fan while on holiday in the Ecuadorian Amazon in October - he even had a shirt with him!

He is coming over for the Millwall game with a couple of friends and is wondering where to go for a drink before the game.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Don't know any local pubs but might not end well for him.

The Broadcaster is usually a pretty civilised option, near White City.

Otherwise if he wants to fly under the radar a bit, Next Door Records on Uxbridge Road is a nice option.

Prost!

I'd say all the pubs around the ground are pretty safe unless you're actively looking for trouble. Then again, I drink well away from the ground before and after games these days, so my knowledge is far from current.

I know Westfield has a sports bar called the Westwood. Not my idea of a "pub", but definitely safe.
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

...I often go to the Crown & Sceptre, friendly, nice and they serve food at reasonable prices, something important to me as I leave my house at 04:30 in the morning so I am really starving on approaching lunch time....(and some pubs do not serve food).
There is also the Coningham Arms (no food though) and the Queen Adelaide (yes for food but more expensive).

The Andover Arms in the back streets between Goldhawk road and Glenthorne rd is nice, a sprinkling of Rs fans there.
Oh, if you're going there Bob well, er, smarten yourself up a bit……

Crown and Sceptre is great!

Defectors Weld is handy for the ground, but they’ll have to show their home tickets on entry.

I like the Princess Victoria too, but it’s a bit of a trek.

"Oh, if you're going there Bob well, er, smarten yourself up a bit…" - harsh but fair 222

Many thanks all.

When first married I rented from a friend in Greenside Road and knew most of the drinking venues around, although I was a member of the Shepherd's Bush Club - but next year is our Golden Wedding anniversary so suspect there may have been many changes I'm the intervening years.

A lot has happened, not only to me but also the R's since then!

I can tell you don't know me 222 - At work a few years ago (late '80's) our Management team debated whether we should adopt a dress down Friday idea but my boss said he didn't like the idea of people coming into the office not looking smart - he then looked at me and said then again some people it wouldn't make any difference...

Just wanted to say thanks for the help all.

My friend Jane and I left our village allowing the same amount of time as usual but met no traffic and arrived an hour early at the Queen Adelaide.

We were so early in fact that we had lunch there which was good and have decided if/when we need to meet anyone again before a game it is the venue for us!

We met my German friend and his two companions and all was great - I have been trying to persuade them to come back next week as they are clearly lucky for us!

Cheers

Bring 'em back Bob, next week is the biggest game of the season.

Quite like the Adelaide although it's Greene King now.

I missed today but just have to struggle to the game next Sunday.

You Rs.
