London Road is about a 20 minute walk from the station. If you're driving then t
If on the train then there are plenty of pubs in the town centre. It can be a bit hit and miss as to whether they'll let you in though. Probably the nearest to the station is the Brewery Tap, which houses the award winning brewery Oakham Ales and has up to 12 real ales on offer. A short walk from here is the Ostrich Inn which has recently re-opened as a traditional pub after a few years as a music pub. It goes without saying that there are a couple of Wetherspoons outlets. Very close to the station, and en route to the ground, is the Drapers Arms. This will no doubt be chocka, so you may prefer the College Arms. An alternative to the Spoons pubs for anyone on a tight budget is the Wortley Almshouses, a Sam Smiths outlet, which is worth a look due to the historic nature of the building if nothing else.
There are also some good options around the ground, including the aforementioned Cherry Tree. The top recommendation, particularly for anyone driving down, is the Coalheavers Arms, which has the look and feel of a village pub. It has 8 real ales available, as well as an extensive range of bottled beers from around Europe. Very similar is the Palmerston Arms Nearest to the ground though Charters
