**Ipswich Away - Riverside Hotel (the old station hotel) opp Train station**

Recommended Posts

Just spoke to the riverside hotel (opposite Ipswich station) and he is opening at 9am for Norwich Fans, it is the dedicated away pub.

If you have done Ipswich away you know this is the away pub and gets a cracking atmosphere.

I have many memories of this place over the years before the matches!

The owner''s a brave man. All i remember of that place from the mid-90s is it getting trashed every derby game.

Back in April 2011 at THE game the manager had half a dozen eastern European barmaids wearing Norwich Tee shirts. That was the only plus point as the place is a 5hithole with disgusting toilets and plastic glasses not forgetting the warm beer.

See you all there at about 10am then. [;)]

My main memory of that pub was standing outside waiting for the police to escort us to the ground as some Ipswich fans walked past giving us grief and one of them was then knocked over by a car.....Mustn''t laugh, it could have been Wiz......

it may well be a bit more subdued this time as it seems the paupers have only sold around 22,000 tickets so farhowever as it''s binland make sure you check your change in the puband remember the scruffy folk selling ''magazines'' around the ground do not have a sign saying Help the Homeless .. ....it is Help the Hopelessthey are programme sellers

Mentioned this on another thread, and i know someone else tried with no luck, but if anyone is going, and is taking an under-16 with them into the family enclosure, i would massively appreciate if you''d let me meet you before the game so i, or a friend, can sneak into the family enclosure with you.Will happily reimburse you a few pints!

My son came out with the following little gem this morning, it''ll be his first local derby on Saturday

"Dad, if there''s any fighting is it ok if I fight another eight year as I don''t want to be left out?"

Obviously such ''Tom Foolery'' was met with the most stern of parental looks but also safe in the knowledge that Junior Binner will be stuffed full or Ritalin and McDonalds
