The main pub for away fans is The Vine on Roebuck Street, about a 15-20 minute walk from the ground, which serves a good selection of Indian food if you fancy something to eat whilst you are there. Other fan favourites include The Royal Oak on Birmingham Road and The Red Lion near the metro station.


There is a fan zone situated on the corner of Halfords Lane and Birmingham Road which contains a number of food stalls and a Greggs branch. The ground opens for away fans 90 minutes before kick-off and once inside there is a wide variety of match day food on offer. Away from the stadium there is a McDonalds a short walk away and a Morrisons supermarket with a cafe just down the road.
