Pubs near Wembley Stadium: Top selection for matchgoing fans

When your side is playing in an FA Cup Final, there's one very important detail to check out: pubs near Wembley stadium.

A pre-match drink is a staple of English football culture, but fans can only go in very specific pubs in and around the ground. Quite sensibly, the authorities allocate specific pubs to each team depending on which side of the stadium they will be sitting.

For the upcoming FA Cup Final on 3rd June, Manchester City have been allocated the West side of Wembley, while Manchester United will be located on the East side.

Brent Council are enforcing a No Street Drinking Zone on Olympic Way and the surrounding areas, so the pubs and official fan zones are the only place to enjoy and alcoholic drink.

Which pubs are on the west side of Wembley Stadium?

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

  • White Horse, 4 Wembley Park Blvd, Wembley Park, Wembley HA9 0HP

Which pubs are on the east side of Wembley Stadium?

The east side of Wembley is generally considered the worst of the two sides by fans who have visited the area. For starters, there are fewer pubs than there are on the west side and none of them are as big as the Green Man. The most popular pub on the east side is the Torch which is around 0.7 miles east of the stadium but this tends to fill up fast on matchday.

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

  • The Blue Check, 12 -13 Empire Way, Wembley, HA9 0RQ
  • Wembley Tavern, 121 Wembley Park Dr, Wembley Park, HA9 8HG
  • Stadium Sports Bar, 125 Wembley Park Dr, Wembley Park, HA9 8HQ
  • The Torch, 1-5 Bridge Rd, Wembley Park, HA9 9AB
  • Crock of Gold, 23 Bridge Road, Wembley, HA9 9AB

Alternatives to pubs near Wembley Stadium

If it's a nice day when you visit Wembley, then the fan zones which organisers put on for the biggest events are usually a great option.

Opening at 11am and closing 30 minutes before kick-off, the Fan Zone will serve food and drinks and will include a resident DJ for fans to enjoy.

Supporters must be in possession of a valid match ticket to enter, and the Wembley Stadium bag policy also applies to the Fan Zones.

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

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 United and 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.
