Wembley - pre game - pubs, bars, venues

I paid £10 for guaranteed entry before 1. Coach was late leaving Oxford services so we got to Boxpark about half past. Full, big queue, wouldn't let us in. Ended up in the Green Man.

That’s unlucky, we pre registered which meant nothing really, got there for about 1.10, queued for 10 minutes and got in free of charge.

I said to the doorman that there was at least 20 to 30 people leaving which surely meant that the place wasn't full. He just said no. I often find it strange that places don't want people's money. If I was the manager of that place, I would be keeping it at absolute capacity as near to kick off as I possibly could. Seems an odd business decision.

I would have happily had a few pints and something to eat, as would the people with me. Clearly if you weren't there before 1 then you weren't going to be spending enough money in there. Seems incredibly early to be in a place 3 hours before a game when travelling 150 miles.

Fortunately, the lioness bar inside the ground was pretty decent.

Didn't know about the lioness bar. I had every intention of spending a fair amount in Boxpark, savouring every moment. Saved a fortune as less on offer at the Green Man. Was decent but not really what I was after for my daughter. Lesson learnt I suppose. Don't go on official coaches if you want to be there a fair few hours before kick off. Fingers crossed we get chance put it right again soon🤣
