    Trust me, Bendtner is a legend among the Danish fans, but I would prefer Vibe on my team any day of the week :-). But I'll gladly discuss that over a pint at the ground ;-)

    This won't sell out so you should get tickets. Contact the club direct. They should be able to get you sorted out.

    Come and stand on the Ealing Road terrace. Enjoy the game.
    10-15 minute walk? After a handfull, hopefully more, pints? Are you joking mate? I'm way too fat and lazy to walk that far after a few cold ones :-D

    If you're walking from South Ealing Underground Station (Piccadilly Line), it's a brisk 15 minute walk and you'll pass two pubs, both on the right hand side of the road, before you get to Griffin Park itself.

    The first will be "Roddy's Bar". It's a mediocre drinking hole in a converted shop and has nothing to recommend it, either to a football fan, or the general drinker (unless you simply cannot walk any further without a drink). Avoid.
    https://en-gb.facebook.com/roddys.southealing

    The next is the Ealing Park Tavern. This is the alter-ego of Roddy's - a nice old pub with character, good beer and food, and a good place to go for a drink at any time (in my opinion). You could certainly do worse than have a pint there, but although there will be some Bees fans there (due primarily to the location close to GP), it's not what you would call a "proper" football pub:
    http://ealingparktavern.co.uk/

    Anyhow, of the pubs already mentioned on this thread, I personally would say the Griffin might be the best of the three corner pubs for a visitor to GP and for a pub a little bit away from the ground, I always like The Globe:
    www.theglobebrentford.com

    Finally, don't forget that for a half-time pint, there is a bar inside Griffin Park itself, "The Hive". It is located in the Braemar Road Stand, so is only accessible to those seated in that Stand or those standing on the Ealing Road Terrace.

    And of those two, imo you really should opt for the Terrace, since in another few years, standing at English football matches will likely be a thing of the past (already is for the Premier League).

    Compared to Denmark they'll all be cheaper. Worked in Arhus for a while, beer in supermarket was cheap and good but going out was a bit

    Never had a problem with Roddy's myself, reasonably priced lager, plenty of tvs showing sports (incl. different football matches if they are on at the same time). It's a bit small but otherwise it's an ok stopping point on the walk to GP.
    Brentford are brilliant.

    yes definitely Ealing Road terrace where you'll hear quite a lot of well informed fans with comments like " get it in the box"....."FORWARD".
    Football is not a matter of life or death, it's more important than that.

    Word of advice, if you get tickets for New Road and you can master the brumnie (Birmingham) accent, the Stewards will treat you like royalty.

    Seriously though, I really hope you enjoy your day.

    Thank you very much, Ealing Bee! That was very helpfull, and I do count on going in the Ealing Road Terrace. I'm not good at sitting down at matches, unless I'm too plastered :-D.

    Errhm, wow do one pull os a brummie-accent? Do you have any good references? Maybe to a clip on YouTube, so we can prepare ourselves :-).

    Yes mate, Dude is another Americanism that is not welcome, we'll let you off your user name, cos your learning
    the local lingo. Honey, Flower and Darlin are fine if we win, spread the love amongst the fellas (see how it works).
    As previously posted, best pre match boozers where proper Bees drink are The Globe, The Nelly and The Kings Arms Trust me, I'm a local

    I'm not sure it is very, er, diplomatic to recommend the Nelly, aka The Lord Nelson, to a Danish visitor
