The good times seem to be returning to St James Park, and there are few better ways to soak up the matchday atmosphere than getting a pre-match drink.
But where are the best places to pick up a drink before making your way to St James’?
1. The Stawberry
As a staple of NUFC culture, the iconic Stawberry is a must visit for all Newcastle fans. The walls are lined with memorabilia and the pub has been a part of club folklore for generations.
2. Rosie's Bar
A traditional old school boozer on the edge of Newcastle's Chinatown, Rosie's Bar is an ideal option a short walk from St James' Park.
3. Nine Bar
Situated underneath the iconic Gallowgate End, Nine Bar's thuping music and wide variety of drink options can put anyone in the mood for matchday.
4. The Junction
Next to both Haymarket Metro station and Percy Street bus station, the Junction is an idea matchday meeting point. The pub lies over two floors, leaving plenty of space for fans.
