Coventry City Wembley pubs: Full details for fans ahead of the FA Cup semi-final

Coventry City fans visited Wembley Stadium last season when they lost 6-5 on penalties to Luton in the Championship play-off final, and almost a year later they have a chance to ease that disappointment.

A mouthwatering tie with Manchester United awaits them in the FA Cup semi-final, and fans will travel in huge numbers looking for somewhere to eat and drink before the game.

With on-street drinking banned in the local area and only specific pubs available for entry, it's important to do some research ahead of the day itself.

We have you covered with the complete list of Coventry City Wembley pubs.

Coventry City Wembley pubs: Where can Coventry fans drink pre-match?

Coventry City fans have been allocated the West side side of the stadium on this occasion.

The west side of Wembley is full of great pubs. Arguably the best and most well-known pub in the surrounding area of Wembley is the Green Man which is half a mile west of Wembley Stadium. That isn't the only option on that side of the stadium, though, with plenty of other places being perfectly good options if the Green Man reaches capacity.

The full list of pubs available on the west side of Wembley is as follows:

  • The Green Man, Dagmar Avenue HA9 8DF
  • Crystals (Sports Bar & Aqua Lounge) 1 Popin Building, Southway, HA9 0HB
  • The Arch, 324 Harrow Rd, Wembley , HA9 6LL
  • Station 31, 299-303 Harrow Rd, Wembley, HA9 6BD
  • The Liquor Station, 397A High Rd, Wembley, HA9 6AA
  • JJ Moons, 397 High Rd, Wembley, HA9 6AA
  • La Regina, St George's Hotel, 43-51 Wembley Hill Rd, Wembley, HA9 8AU
  • Black Sheep, 2 Olympic Way, Wembley Park, HA9 0GU
  • Sixty Six Bar & Grill, 3 South Way, Wembley, HA9 0JU
  • The Corner House, 313 Harrow Road, HA9 6BA
  • White Horse, 4 Wembley Park Blvd, Wembley Park, Wembley HA9 0HP

Other pubs around Wembley for Coventry City fans

A fan zone will be available for Coventry City fans at BoxPark with admission before 11:30 available to pre-book for £10 here. Boxpark Wembley is on Olympic Way, and the postcode is HA9 0JT. There will be over 20 different food vendors, and three different bars to choose from.

A valid match ticket must be produced to gain entry to BoxPark, and children are permitted to enter as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

There are strict rules over conduct at BoxPark including not throwing items in the air, no banners, no standing on tables, and a zero tolerance policy over abuse of any kind towards staff or fellow supporters.

There are also a number of places to eat and drink at the London Designer outlet not allocated to a particular team that include Nando's, TGI Fridays, Pizza Express and Wagamama.

For those not travelling to Wembley, HMV Empire in Coventry will be screening the match with free entry, deals on drinks and various food vendors available. The venue opens at 10am and will be showing the historic 1987 FA Cup final from 12 noon to build excitement ahead of the game.

Wembley Car Parking for Coventry City fans

While the official Wembley car parks are available to pre-book for Coventry City fans, there is an alternative that has proven popular with various sides in the past. Nearby Wealdstone FC have come up with a genius idea to raise funds for their club, offering parking at their ground which is just a short tube ride away from Wembley.

Parking is available for Coventry fans only on the day, at the price of just £7.50 per car. Minibuses are charged at £20 and coaches cost £50, and the club set up their own mini-fanzone with a barbecue at the venue. Details are available here.

Inside the stadium

Wembley stadium is now completely cashless, meaning fans will need to make sure they have a card or contactless method of payment with them if they want to buy anything whilst inside.

Supporters will be able to take advantage of a new frictionless Tap Bar on level one at Wembley, allowing access to refreshments quicker and more conveniently. Fans will simply tap their card on entry, pick up what they have ordered and then walk away without the need to queue.

Man City fans may be repeat visitors to the stadium, but there are some recent additions to the food and drink offerings at Wembley.

These include TapHouse Social, Camden Town Brewery Bars and two new M&S Food stores, and can be found on the level two concourse.
