Refreshments in the ground are usually supplied from a burger van which serves chips and burgers.
Gino’s Fish and Chips are located at 200 Plessey Road (by the away turnstiles) and further afield on The Broadway Circle is the Broadway Chippy which is another popular place to visit for away supporters.
Fish and Chips are also available at Coastline by the beach car park (free parking). There is also a great cafe and ice cream parlour next door.
Where to Drink ?
The Social Club at the ground itself welcomes away fans and is a great place to meet up before and after the game. It serves the usual range of beers and has some bottled real ales. The club even has its own Spartans Ale. As well as beers the social clubs sells a range of sandwiches and hot pies. Thirsty fans can also order their half-time drinks before kick-off. Although entrance to the Social Club is outside the ground, fans can get a ‘pass out’ to visit in the interval.
Close by is the Masons Arms. Well behaved away fans should have no problems in here but this is definitely a home fans pub and shows live sports on TV.
Further afield in the town centre, only 10-15 minutes’ walk away are a few more pubs. The Wallaw on Union Street is an award winning Wetherspoons conversion of a former Art Deco cinema and deserves a visit. There is always a good range of cask ales and craft beers on tap. Oliver’s on Bridge Street is also worth a visit.
