Premier League’s best club for boozing has 131 pubs near to the stadium

Newcastle are top of the league when it comes to being able to get a pre-match pint.

There are a staggering 131 pubs within a 15 minute walk of their St James’ Park ground. Toon Army fans have 262% more boozers on their doorstep compared to top flight rivals, including The Strawberry right outside the ground.

It is 81 more than the second best Premier League club Wolves. There are still 50 in the same radius of their Molineux home. Burnley’s Turf Moor has 36 nearby boozers and Arsenal’s Emirates stadium has 33.

A spokesperson said: “St. James’ Park, the pride of Newcastle United, tops the Premier League list as the ultimate stadium for a pre-game drink.

“With a staggering 131 pubs to explore before or after the match, no other team’s fans have such a wealth of choice at their disposal. Coming in second place with 50 pubs within walking distance is the Wolverhampton Wanderers, followed by Burnley with 36.”

But Burnley had the best boozer voted for by fans. The New Brew-m in the Lancashire town got a perfect 100% score thanks to its £2.50 pints.

The William Gunn in Nottingham and Liverpool’s Taggy’s Bar and Beer Garden came joint second with 94%. Newcastle’s best boozer – Katie O’Brien’s Irish Tavern – only came fifth with 81%.
