As we aren't travelling in sufficient numbers there isn't a designated meeting pub for Scunthorpe this year. Before the match the Berkley Hotel is likely to be full of Carlisle fans and the Honest Lawyer is well worth a visit if you're travelling by train. If you are planning on going email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try and put you in touch with other members making the trip.
Other Boozers and Food Outlets Worth a Visit
Large two roomed Sam Smiths Pub close to the ground. The beer is cheap and decent provided you like Sam Smiths Old Brewery Bitter or other Sam Smiths produced drinks. This will likely be the last meeting point pre match.
The Honest Lawyer, 70 Oswald Road, Scunthorpe, DN15 7PG, 01724 849906
Close to the railway station, the Honest Lawyer is a cracking little pub with a number of rotating real ales and a restaurant upstairs. For those travelling by train this is likely to be the first stop off point upon arrival in scunny.
The Blue Bell, 1-7 Oswald Road, Scunthorpe, DN15 7PU, 01724 863921
An above average Weatherspoons pub situated between the Honest Lawyer and the Berkeley. Rumoured to do a good range of local real ales, some of us may pop in here for a swift pint en route to the ground.
The supporters club at the ground is imaginatively titled The Iron Bar but does not allow away fans in. There is however a bar inside the away end which serves beer as well as the usual array of pies and burgers. There’s also a pub right by the ground called the Old Farmhouse which apparently lets away fans in but no colours are allowed. Over the road from Glanford Park is a retail park which has the usual array of mainstream fast food chains.
How To Get There
The station is a bit of a schlep from the ground but is entirely walk able, particularly if you stop for refreshment at the Honest Lawyer and Blue Bell along the way. Head out the station and do a left along Station Road, at the first junction turn right up Oswald Road (The Honest Lawyer is on the right) and head straight for about 400 meters. Turn left at the junction with Doncaster road (The Blue Bell is on the Corner) and head straight for about a mile and a bit until you reach a large roundabout and the Berkeley Hotel. To get to the ground continue down Doncaster Road to the next roundabout and turn left. Glanford Park should be straight in front of you. Depending on how fit we are all feeling and how many pints we sup in the Honest Lawyer some branch members might jump in a taxi. Alternatively the 909 bus runs down Doncaster Road to the ground.
