    I'm thinking of meeting a mate from Worthing in the Railway to watch England Colombia. Anyone been in there for other England games and can recommend it (or not)?

      Basically a creche with beer and burgers. Probably better choices for football.

      Make sure you're up to date with your tetanus.

      [edit]

      I was thinking of the Victoria on the other side. I wouldn't go to either for the soccerball though tbh. If you want a half-decent pub by a station then I'd probably mince along to the Buckingham in Shoreham.

      Not sure if they show football. Be able to join a knitting group, if not.

      Normally they donít. There was an unwritten split of customers when they opened- The Vic got Sky Sports and karaoke and Railway got dungarees and small children. They are showing the World Cup.

      Iíve had some cracking nights in there after the rug rats have left but itís not a football pub.

      It's a blog. About home games. And some other stuff.

      Thing is, that will be packed, you'll get covered in beer (if we score), and probably turn a bit ugly if we lose. The Railway, you'll have a mixed crowd, it won't be all kids, there will be plenty of ladies too, and frankly despite a few kids dotted about, it will be a jovial atmosphere with a decent garden out back, nice range of ales. I'd pick that over a so called 'skysports' pub every day of the week.

      I watched the Panama game in the Buckingham, and it was highly civilised. Was sat at a table with a buddy (yes, I do have one), unobstructed view. No hint of a dry lunch, very pleasant viewing. Maybe the 1pm kickoff was condusive to that though (7pm tomorrow might bring out the spackos who can't hold their drink). But I'd say the Buckingham was a largely positive England experience.

      I watched us lose to Iceland in the function room at the back of the railway. It's not great football watching tbh
