Hi all

 

I work with a Barrow fan and out of sympathy for someone else who had to endure David Dunn have offered to help him.

 

he and some mates want to come to BP for the Barrow game and are asking about pubs and whether away friendly? I don’t drink and turn up at ten to three so my knowledge is limited 

 

I know there’s one at the top of Sheepfoot lane on the main road and one about a mile away but can’t remember if they let aways in or not.

 

Any help?

Rifle Range is definitely away fan friendly and the Chaddy Bowling club just around the corner is fine too. 

 

White Hart at top of Sheepfoot Lane is also away fan friendly. 

 

I suspect they will be ok anywhere, Carters Arms too (just down road from White Hart) I think would be fine as well

You watch this lot and you don't drink?  Remarkable!

All the pubs between Oldham town centre and BP have gone forever unfortunately. There's also nothing at the "top of Sheepfoot Lane" - think people are confusing the Old Grey Mare (again closed down) with the White Hart - the White Hart is still going - I think - but it's a fair walk down Rochdale Road towards Royton from top of Sheepfoot. My advice to your Barrow mates. Park up in Royton and there are plenty of decent boozers. Railway is good for starters.

The Railway in the centre of Royton is my "local".

 

Finest J W Lees draught bitter as good as it gets - don't start - I've drunk it for 45 years at £ 3.15 per pint.

 

Away fans welcome as far as I am aware.:drinking45:

Quite a few in Failsworth near the bottom end of Broadway.

As mentioned by @unsworth blue, the Rifle Range was always away fan friendly.

 

Come to think of it, tell your mate to just stay there and not lose 90 minutes drinking time. He'll save £20, deprive AL of cash and is bound to enjoy himself more!

Speaking as a proud native of Middleton who still suffers nightmares at the memory of JWL, the Railway has presumably been paying you all these years to drink Lees bitter. Surely you can afford to buy AL out?

Churchill Playing Fields at Greenfield - the Latics playing in Yorkshire! Uppermill is now the night spot of the north (although ruined as a result in my opinion) so anyone can drink to their heart's content (at around £5 plus a pint of course!).

Tell them to head to the town centre. Ashton Arms always has some good beers on and about 6 quid in a taxi at 20 to 3.

Churchill mud bath would be typical of latics to build on a flood plane
