Firstly their stewarding team are strategically located in their high visibility uniforms on hand to give assistance with any questions which you may have, they have a high knowledge of local amenities and stadium access – if they do not know a piece of information they will endeavour to find someone that does.

Derby's designated MSLO’s will be on hand to deal with any of your queries too. Look for their blue Fans First jacket!

Food and Drink


Pubs for Away Fans

Taken from the football ground guide:

With Pride Park being located in a retail park/industrial estate then there is little choice in the way of drinking outlets. Pete Stump informs me; ‘On a recent visit, the police directed us to a “Harvester” about five minutes walk away from the stadium. It was full of away fans, however, we were told that they don’t always admit visiting supporters.’ Nigel Summers a visiting Brighton fan adds; ‘The Navigation Inn on London Road, is okay for away supporters. It has free street parking outside, is on the A6 (so an easy getaway after the game) and it is just a ten minute walk away from the stadium. There is a basic burger and chips food menu, decent beers, including Doom Bar on my last visit and shows televised football. Home fans also frequent the pub, but it was friendly enough.’ Across the road from the Navigation Inn is the Derby Conference Centre which has a bar facility inside and welcomes visiting supporters. You can also park at the centre at a cost of £5. A discount off a particular beer inside the centre is sometimes offered for those who park there.

There are a few pubs opposite Derby Railway Station, but they are for home supporters only. A couple of exceptions are the Station Inn on Midland Road and a little further along the Tiffany Lounge, both of which are only a few minutes walk away. If not wearing colours and arriving early then further along the Railway Terrace you may be able to enjoy a decent ale at the Brunswick Inn or the nearby Alexandra Hotel, both of which are included in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. If you have time on your hands and don’t arrive mob-handed, then it may be best to wander into the city centre where there are plenty of pubs to be found. Jon Thompson a visiting Sheffield United fan informs me; ‘We ended up in the Exeter Arms on Meadow Road, which I’d highly recommend, is about a 15 minute walk from there to Pride Park.’ There are bars at the back of the stands, offering pints of Lager or Cider (both £4.30), however they do get, quite crowded.

If you enjoy your real ale, then Derby is somewhat of a ‘Mecca’ destination for the discerning drinker. With a staggering 18 pub entries in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, most of which are located fairly central, plus a host of other good pubs too, it may be an idea to arrive earlier and explore some of these fine watering holes.

If arriving by train from Birmingham New Street, then another alternative is to stop off at Burton-on-Trent. There are a few good pubs within a couple of minutes walk from the station, including the Last Heretic on Station Street (just turn right out of the station and it is down on the right. This pub serves real ale, cider, craft lagers and has a large beer garden.

The Weather

At the time of writing, the weather forecast is for highs of 14 during the match with a chance of rain, so make sure you take a coat!


Total Distance

The total distance from Exeter to Pride Park is 212 miles and will take around three and a half hours each way.
