Depends on which kind of pub you like, there's a Spoons 5 minutes from the station, also a Brew Dog almost next door, I prefer No2 Baker St right opposite Spoons, there's only one pub near Forthbank so may be an issue getting in there, mind though all of the city centre boozers are strictly no football colours and there are a load of OF wannabees around.

I was in No 2 Baker Street a few weeks ago and it was a good wee pub, old style traditional feel to it, not far from the stations too. I imagine me and my mates will be heading to Spoons though as we are a fan of the cheap beer and soul-less venue vibe :greengrin

Cold Beer Company on Barnton Street is 5 minutes from station, a Belhaven pub with a huge screen for sport and a decent food menu. Molly Malones is a nice medium sized Irish bar just round the corner from Cold Beer Co.

City Walls or Kilted Kangaroo are also good shouts for anyone looking for something to eat before the game.

Ginger, does Molly Malone's adopt the 'no football colours' policy to the best of your knowledge? Think that's where we'll be heading but the laddie will doubtless want to give his new Hibs top an airing. Was last there en route to Alloa several years ago, cannae mind whit the craic wis back then...

I'm not too sure how strict they are, I'd take along something to cover up with just in case, I avoid Molly's when there's fitba on as it tends to be full of the lesser greens

If it's just a kid, I can't see how anybody would complain.


Considering the fact that most dangerous fans are the ones not wearing colours, the whole concept is quite outdated.

Cheers - will make sure he wears a jacket just in case there's a problem. Hopefully the lesser greens will keep oot the road while we're in town!

I was told to take off my Hibs scarf when I was in there last season, so I'd definitely cover up....

Totally agree w everything there. It's well out the way, but the old Settle Inn on Upper Bridge Street is a good boozer for after match.

Aye, agreed. Since the early 80s, wearing colours has generally been a sign that you're not looking for bother (the exception to this rule being The Huns, about whom no positive assumptions can ever be safely made)!

Sounds Hibs friendly. Is the Guinness good?

One of the local Hibbies will be much better placed to answer that, but I would've been drinking Guinness when there a few years ago. I tend to drink the black stuff in the Irish theme bars in the assumption they must pour a lot of it!

Cheapest in town and poured properly. Greene King chain pub but nothing wrong with it - lots of TVs and food is cheap.

Curly Coo, Nicky-Tams and Settle Inn amongst others are all more soulful independent places. Kilted Kangaroo is also worth a shout - good food and beers and large enough to take groups. Said this in the other thread but for food there's a top-class Neapolitan pizza bit on Friar Street called Napizza - very small but they churn out takeaways pretty quickly - and a couple of good indians as well as a burrito bit; also a quite recent and really pretty good sushi spot, and the usual restaurants/chippies/takeaways/cafes. Up by the cinema (en route to the ground from the centre) there's a Nando's, F&B, Beefeater and suchlike as well as a small but very good restaurant called Gabe's Diner. No shortage of places anyway - but for pubs you're probably indeed best sticking to the centre.

Many thanks, mate. Think I will try the Guinness on Molly's then, and probably a bite to eat :aok:

The Settle is probably my favourite pub in Stirling but it is a bit out of the way.

Most pubs will be fine with it in my experience although they tend to be more stringent on match days. It's really something that's enforced on derby nights and the like when you get folk crowding in to watch on TVs - for what is effectively a pretty low-key pre-season game I doubt you'll be asked to cover up but no harm in taking a plain jacket or jumper just in case
