Away days - Brentford

16 October 2015

All the information you need for your trip to Griffin Park...

Griffin Park is the home of Brentford, and is known as the only ground in the country to have a pub on every corner, with the capacity just shy of 13,000.

Despite being one of the smaller grounds in the Sky Bet Championship, the ground is as traditional as it gets, being situated in the middle of a residential area.


Local parking:
Finding somewhere to park in London is always a challenge, least of all in a residential area, where much of the street parking is for permit holders only. There is a one small pay and display car park, on Layton Road, which will cost up to £5 for three hours.


Pubs:
The history of the ground is woven with that of the Fullers brewery, with Griffin Park taking the logo of the famous beer, due to the company once owning the land on which the stadium now lies. With the brewery now a short distance down the road in Chiswick, the quality of beer in and around the ground is something to enjoy.

Perhaps the most famous of these pubs, is the Griffin itself, with the pub being featured in the 2004 film Green Street. The New Inn, is typically the favoured pub for away fans, and for those looking for something a bit further afield – the Magpie & Crown is only five minutes away on the Brentford High Street and welcomes both home and away fans.


Amenities:
A match day programme is going to set you back £3, whilst a pie will come to £3.30 and a cup of tea to go with it will cost £1.60.


Final verdict:
Brentford away gives the Millers faithful the perfect excuse for a trip to the capital, with Griffin Park being in the middle of Fullers’ country, despite the clubs recent on field struggles the atmosphere is always intense due to the enclosed nature of the ground.
