Pubs for Away Fans

Taken from the footballgroundguide:

"Popular with away fans and in easy walking distance of Oakwell is the Metrodome Leisure Complex, which has a bar inside. If a sizeable away following is expected then additional bar facilities are brought into the sports hall at the Metrodome, which as you would expect is a bit sparse. Neil Tubby a visiting Norwich City fan, recommends the Dove Inn on Doncaster Road. This pub which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide is an outlet for the Old Mill Brewery. It is only a five minute walk away from the ground down Oakwell Lane and is happily frequented by both home and away fans. Further along, Doncaster Road (on the right after the Primary School on the left) is the Barnsley East Dene Working Mens Club, which is happy to admit visiting supporters (including accompanied children) for a small donation."

The Weather

At the time of writing, the forecast for Barnsley on Saturday is good, with highs of 14 expected!


Total Distance

The total distance from Exeter to Oakwell or is 260 miles and will take around four hours and sixteen minutes each way.
