Town centre is best . Be aware tho some bars change there policy for united home games, and don't let away fans in especially ones wearing colours.

There are decent pubs near the ground and on the Chorlton side. But full of Manure (more so than the city centre) and strict on away fans (some ask for tickets in the past).

Sinclair's Oyster Bar in the city centre has a big outdoor area and often has big numbers of away fans

The Wetherspoons near Piccadilly station allowed away fans in colours for the City game. Turn right out the station and walk down the hill for 5 mins and you're there.

The Bull's Head (out station and left going down towards the tram stops) opposite the trams was mixed and fun when playing City a few seasons back... Again, protocol there v Man U, unknown

Is it walkable from city centre to ground?

Anything is walkable....but its a long way. Further than Man City. Mind you, the metro queue makes it tempting.

Obviously, but you know what I meant. :)

Is it metro, taxi or nothing to the ground then? Not been since the 2004/5 season and drove but staying this time so will venture into town before and after.

Probably been more often for rugby than palace.

Going is fine, the Metro is quick and easy. Or taxi obviously. Getting back, it's just the long line for the metro, but it is well enough managed. Never tried the train station.

Bus is option. Journey just gets clogged up though, coming back. Personally, the metro works ok.

You can walk it, but it's a long and boring walk once you're passed Deansgate.
There is a pub in Hulme which I think is the only one in that gap between Deansgate & Old Trafford called The Three Legs of Man, which is an interesting pub. Not sure what it's like on a match day though. It was like the Jockey in Shameless when I was in there a few years back.

This is a really good bar and a short walk to Deansgate metrolink and train station which both serve Old Trafford.

Font, outside Oxford Road station, has a good range of beers if you're staying at that end of town

It didn't let my group in and some other Palace fans wearing colours before City.
We ended up in Yates drinking flat lager out of plastic glasses.

We tend to go to Lime at Salford Quays. Not a place for the real ale drinkers, but around 10 minutes walk from the away end and welcoming to away fans.

For those driving up, away fans guide recommends The Quadrant Pub, Great Stones Road, Stretford. Street parking, away fans friendly, 15mins walk to the ground

Thanks for the info. I notice the walk to the ground is 5 minutes shorter than when you posted yesterday (on ticket thread). This is only important because I recently had an ankle operation and am walking with the aid of a crutch. 20 minutes normal walking would probably be double that for me.

Lancashire v Yorkshire in the county championship is happening at Old Trafford Cricket ground. A few of us are going to head straight there to sink a few beers watching the cricket, and then its just a short walk up to the football ground at 2:40 to switch sports and watch Palace. May even pop back in to the cricket after the match to watch close of play with a pint and let the tram queue outside die down... Perfect sporting Sunday :p

Sorry to hear about your ankle mate & sorry I can't be more precise, Google says 23 mins walk, fans guide says 10-15 mins and pub guide says a few mins walk to Old Trafford.
Hopefully we can get a few in there & it's not to far from the ground.

Thanks for the update. I might try the cricket option. At least then I can get a seat with my beer.

Where did everyone end up in the end?

I started off in Yates and Wetherspoons (close to the hotel) followed by Picadilly tavern. No pubs at the stadium so just had a few bottles in the ground. In the evening (with some suggestions on here) I went to the Albert Schloss which was excellent and sampled some fine beers.


Still not made it back home yet!

Stay in the pub mate, make an afternoon of it, stay away from the football, and then come back.
