Northampton Town Tips
I have been on to the Northampton Town fans forum and asked about some recommendations for pubs/restaurants etc on the day of the game.
Sixfields Stadium is about a 2 mile walk from Northampton Town station for those going by train. For those going by coach/car to the stadium complex, you are in a retail park of sorts.
Here are some tips from Northampton Town fans:
'You've got the Black Lion to the left as you come out of the station and then turning right towards Sixfields you've got the Becket, Foundry and Sevens at 5 minute walking intervals en route to the ground. It's a pretty handy pub crawl actually.'
'Also think Carrs Bar under the main stand (to the right of main entrance, can't miss the sign) will probably admit away fans for this one.
'Loads of restaurants on Sixfields itself. TGI's, Frankie & Bennys, Chiquitos. Loads of choice.'
'The Market Tavern on Fish Street, then the Albion Brewery at the bottom of Bridge Street for a taste of Northampton. Then take a taxi to the Sevens, 5 mins walk from Sixfields then the Walter Tull at Sixfields.'
'Thomas a Becket easily best pub on the Weedon Rd (in my opinion). Out of the station, turn right (towards Sixfields). First pub you come to after a 3-5 min walk. Good choice of real ales, SKY TV and outside pub, any Daventry bound bus from bus stop will take you straight to Sixfields...or the rest of the pubs and a 20 min walk.'
If any Boro fans know Northampton at all, please post any tips on this thread.
