Best pubs near goodison park

If you’re planning to catch a match at Goodison Park and want to enjoy some pre or post-match drinks, you’re in luck as there are plenty of pubs near Goodison Park to choose from.

Whether you’re looking for a traditional pub atmosphere or something more modern, the area surrounding the stadium has something for everyone.

So, before we kick-off, familiarise yourself with the location of Goodison Park below:

So, what are the best pubs near Goodison park?

Thomas Frost

Located a short 5 minute walk from Goodison Park, this Wetherspoon chain pub has a mix of Everton fans and away support, creating a great atmosphere. If you’re a fan of cheap pints & food, then this is the place for you.

I’ve personally visited this pub a few times and it’s your classic Spoons pub. Nothing more, nothing less. They have a couple screens in the pub which show the pre-match build-up, however, I found chatting to some of the locals more entertaining!

Overall, this is a great choice if you don’t fancy a long walk to the stadium (especially after a few pints), and it’s a familiar Wetherspoons. You get what you pay for!

The Queens Arms

If you’re heading to Goodison Park via the M57 or M58, The Queens Arms is an excellent choice. Located right next to Aintree Racecourse, it’s a short 10 minute drive to the ground down the A59. For those who are travelling by coach, this destination is popular as it offers a spacious parking area exclusively for coaches.

Large screens with Sky & BT sport, relaxed environment and classic beer, what more could you ask for? Lifelong football fan Mark Stephens said this is one of his favourite pubs near Goodison Park to visit. Reasonably priced and perfect for those who use supporters coaches.

The Arkles

If you’re familiar with our Anfield Pub guide, you may recognise this one as it used by Everton Football Club, Liverpool and travelling supporters. The Arkles is a great place for banter and some pre-match grub.

Located a 15 minute walk away from Goodison Park, this Greene King pub offers an extensive and reasonably priced menu, as well as showing Sky & BT sport for pre-match build-up.

If you’re planning to visit this classic away-day pub, I would recommend arriving early to secure a seat, as it can get quite busy. This is definitely one of the best pubs for away fans near Goodison Park.

The Winslow Hotel

Home fans, this ones for you. Rated the best Everton FC pub by the Liverpool Echo, The Winslow Hotel is an iconic pub in Evertonian history. If you’re prone to drinking one too many pre-match pints, you’re in luck at The Winslow as it couldn’t be located any closer to the football ground (literally).

Whether it’s a Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur or an FA cup game vs Crystal Palace, the Winslow Hotel is always full of Everton supporters creating an electric pre-match atmosphere.

One of my lifelong friends who supports Everton told me that it’s a must-visit if you are a fan of The Toffees, “a once in a lifetime experience”. In my opinion (and the fans of Everton), this is the best pub for Everton fans near Goodison Park.

Liverpool City Centre

For away fans visiting Goodison Park to watch an Everton Match, I’ve found the city centre is a great place to enjoy some pre-match drinks before taking public transport to the stadium.

I recommended The Grapes, a historic pub with great atmosphere and The Globe, a popular spot with a range of beers on tap. Both pubs are conveniently located near Liverpool Lime Street Station, where fans can catch a train to Goodison Park.
