Staying over Daggers v Pools

Post by poolsfan in peace » Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:12 pm

Hi Daggers fans, me and the. Missus are staying over in Dagenham Premier Inn on Friday and Saturday night, really looking forward to the game, new ground for me. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone knows of any local pubs/clubs that might have a band on either or both nights or if not just a decent pub for night out, thanks in advance.

Hi PoolsFan

I know there is a band playing at The Admiral Vernon on Saturday night which is a short walk from the Premier Inn but it’s not the best pub. If you don’t mind a cab ride then I’d suggest The Fatling in Hornchurch as they have live bands but not 100% whether there are bands on this weekend but it’s a decent pub. There’s a few places in Hornchurch that have gigs so you might be better looking in that area more than Dagenham. Other than that there are loads of pubs in Romford of varying qualities. Hope you and the missus have a good time.

Hi poolsFan,

Would defo agree with Dr Monkatron... would advise you and the misses venturing into Hornchurch high st, some nice pubs and lovely restaurants & only 10 mins in a taxi,

Hope you enjoy your evening, but hopefully not the result :)

Ha ha, not so much a'rocker' Ian C , we just like to see live music, who's the band on Friday and what sort of stuff do they play, we might give it a shot.

Hi mate, my local The Golden Lion on the edge of Romford town centre in the market place is decent on a Saturday for live music. Historic old pub with good range of beers. Good to have a few choices!

If you are arriving late on Friday I agree stay local. There is a wetherspoons in Dagenham Heathway but for music I agree with the other posts.
I suggest on Saturday after the match take the tube (district line) from Dagenham East and go into central London. If make your way to Piccadilly Circus or Leicester Square you can visit Chinatown. Wardour/ Gerard Street and get a meal and take in the busy area. Lots of pubs around there in shafestesbury avenue area. It's also threatreland so if you want take in a show.

Stay away from the weatherspoon in the heathway.
Food in brewers fare which is next to where your staying is awful aswell.
Hornchurch is your best bet and is only a short cab fare away.
Any of the pubs are decent with most selling good food.
Steer clear of barking aswell.
Pipe major which is on way to ground sells ok beer plus food isn't to bad. Which is carvery. The starter platter are very good.
Wish you would of posted before booking we all would of recommended staying elsewhere.
Anyway enjoy your weekend
