Don’t forget to wipe your boots when you leave the Golden Lion.

Get to the ground early and have a pint at the ale tent, it's located on the river, at the corner of Hammersmith and Riverside stands

It isn't in the JH stand it is in the corner (not the side) of the ground by the river.  I have an ST on that side of the Hammersmith stand and can access it easily.

I know where it is but King Crud suggests that JH ticket holders can access it. There's no way out of JH at the Hammersmith end is there, to access the beer tent? I have always thought once you were in JH, there's no way out.

There is no way out going by what my mate told me when he got locked in the JH Stand most of one season, as they thought he would not return for the next home game.

The best pub is the Dukes Head, on the other side of the Thames, excellent choice of beers and beautiful panorama,  20 minutes walk from the stadium as you have to cross Putney Bridge but it is worth a visit.

It was my local for many years, I used St George’s Gym on the top floor of the pub, four times a week to pump iron, and now keep up the tradition in my own private gym.
But I agree with you about the Dukes, it is worth a visit.

Alright TexanCottager, now that you've had your first visit to Craven Cottage for a match, how was it? Photos to post?

What did you do that you are happy that you did? What would you have done differently?

As someone who still believes that there is some day in his future that will contain enough money to make such a pilgrimage, I'd enjoy hearing about yours.

So no word from Texan Cottager, suspect he may have found it all too small for his liking and quickly became homesick for Texas.

He went in error into the Putney end, found himself in the mix with Derby supporters, and ended up going back to Derbyshire with them, and is now a Rams Season Ticket Holder.
