Leeds v Reading - Visitors from Texas

Postby TexasJ » 05 Nov 2018, 00:36

Four of us from Houston, Texas visiting for the Leeds v Reading match on Nov 27.
Any ideas on pre- & post match pubs would be appreciated as would like to meet up with some local fans for a beer or two.
We are a motley crew with backgrounds from Venezuela, Puerto Rico & Mexico and have been planning this trip for a couple of years.

Firstly welcome to the forum. The Peacock next to the ground is a good pub & for home fans only. Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for tip. The Club were terrific in sorting out tickets for my group so we're really looking forward to it.
Perhaps we can buy you beer at Peacock before the match in appreciation for your hospitality.

I'm guessing you'll be staying in town somewhere ?
There's a cracking pub called The Grove with loads of English "real ales" on draught (that's warm beer to you ;) ) and it has a good, mature atmosphere before and after games. It's not far from the station - google it and you'll find it's on the way if you fancy walking to or from the ground. When I come up from the south of England I often go there post-match :)

Have a great time !

Sounds perfect! We're staying not too far from the Station so that sounds ideal. If weather permits we'll walk to stadium and make sure we include a stop at The Grove. Cheers

Have a great trip mate. Just inform Trump about the trip so he allows you back into the States. :thumbup: :D

Thanks. We're not exactly on speaking terms with his Trumpness so I might skip that piece advice and risk it.
