The Stratford pub guide for Irons fans


goldengroveWith concerns growing about where to get that all important pre-game drink on our move to the Olympic Stadium, here are the boozers listed on google for Stratford.

It looks to us as if  the Wetherspoon-owned Golden Grove might be the one for most Irons fans although the birthplace of Iron Maiden  The Cart and Horses looks a possibility.

The King Edward V11 is perhaps a tad upmarket.

Iron Maiden secured a residency at The Cart and Horses in 1976 and the pub is well reviewed whilst The Queens Head also gets decent write-ups.

cartThey all look preferable to The Boleyn Bar but of course there will inevitably be plenty of drinking holes within the stadium itself!

    As someone who is flexible Hugh this is the best blog this week,even BFS would have problem with this much choice but he will chose were the family will go when that 100th goal goes in ( hopefully this month )

    Brilliant and helpful. Still preferring the Bow Bells by Bow Church DLR – 12 minute journey door to door. Wouldn’t want to put that on a public forum though in case the pub gets rammed……

    ‘A tad upmarket’ – sounds just the place!

    Thinking about this Boleyn Pub and looking at the pictures it looks more and more unattractive, definitely not value for money.

    I think I’ll take my chances in the East Stand!

  • I try guys often in the face of overwhelming odds 😉

    Didn’t the Golden Grove pub used to be a camping shop many moons ago?!
