It is almost time for our final outing of the 2014-15 season, which sees us heading back to the national stadium for the FA Cup final.
With so much at stake, you may well have to settle your nerves with a drink or two. As with the semi-final against Liverpool, Aston Villa fans will be on the West side of the ground so we will get all the pubs on the West side whereas Arsenal fans will get the East side this time round.
Below is a guide to Wembley pubs that will accept Villa supporters.
The Green Man
Dagmar Avenue, Wembley, HA9 8DF | Website
The Green Man is possibly the most popular Wembley pub so we are quite lucky to be situated on the West side of the ground. However, being the most popular, it does have its downfalls – everybody wants to be there. I would advise arriving as early as possible to avoid disappointment. They do offer coach parking and the pub opens at 10am.
The Green Man boasts a spacious bar, restaurant and a very large beer garden. It is just an eight minute walk from the stadium.
397 High Road, Wembley, HA9 7DT | Website
JJ Moon’s is a Wetherspoon’s and is everything you would expect from one, offering cheap beer, average food and most likely to be pretty busy. They boast TV screens (most likely showing BBC news on repeat), an outside licensed area and children are welcome here.
JJ Moon’s opens at 8am and comes highly recommended compared to other pubs in the area. The pub is half a mile away from Wembley Stadium.
412 High Road, Wembley, HA9 6AH
Thirsty Eddie’s, along with JJ Moon’s, is highly recommended. It is everything you would expect from a small sports pub. It boasts live sport on the TV, serves lager at £3 a pint and has a late music license. The pub is around a ten minute walk from the stadium.
The Blue Room
53 Wembley Hill Road, Wembley, HA9 8BE | Website
The Blue Room advertises itself as a restaurant/bar but it does look more like a nightclub venue when looking on the website.
After reading reviews, I wouldn’t advise eating there, with one person suggesting you ‘save your money and cook at home’. Further reviews describe the decor as dated but the place is spacious so providing you just want a drink I can’t see there being too much of an issue.
The Blue Room is situated just 0.2 miles from Wembley, making it one of the closest establishments to the stadium.
The Black Lion
274 Kilburn High Road, Kilburn, NW6 2BY | Website
The Black Lions is located around half hour away from Wembley Stadium so could be ideal should you want to drink away from the pubs close to the stadium. The Black Lion offers food as well as fourteen guest rooms.
The pub will open at 10am as the staff are expecting an organised Aston Villa coach. It is said that the owner is Ciaran Clark‘s uncle.
Wealdstone Football Club
Grosvenor Vale, Ruislip, HA4 6JQ | Website
Many of you will be familiar with this football club due to the internet sensation The Wealdstone Raider. The football club is a forty minute tube ride away from Wembley but this will be where four or more coaches from The New Adventurers will park and where many fans are planning to touch base.
Other pubs in the area, with the distance from Wembley provided, include:
Liquor Station, 379 High Road, Wembley, HA9 6AA (0.6 miles)
