When we were playing our home games at Wembley I used to have a few beers in Dirty Dicks, Liverpool Street/Bishopgate and then once in Wembley Park a few in The Parish.

Wembley I mostly did Moore Spice. All the old heads like SS used to be in there. Sometimes The Parish with 57, or occasionally the Premier Inn or The Torch.

Edit. Me and Boltonspur Boltonspur bunked in a couple of residents only hotels by a bit of smooth taking.

I know Dirty Dicks

There’s also a Dirty Dicks in Valletta Malta 🇲🇹

True story
My Dad got thrown out of there during the war and banned for life and my brother followed in his footsteps in the 60s
I didn’t follow suit though!

I'm not really a pub person as part of my usual social activities, so not especially missing going for a drink. However, I do miss going to the Coach & Horses pre-game, just for the catch up with friends.
When we were at Wembley, used to go to Hennessey's, next to Kingsbury station - think it closed down soon after we returned to Tottenham.
Goodness me, I really miss going to games.

How busy was Hennessey's on match days?
I used to park at Kingsbury Station on weekday games.
 
Just remembered that years ago after the game used to go in the British Queen, used to be right next to White Hart Lane Station. Great laugh in there, always burnt my mouth on the roast potatoes that got passed around. Really hard to get a decent photo of it.

Decent option after the game. A pint in there whilst the station queue went down. Must have been closed for 7/8 years now, maybe more.

I've had a pint in most of these mentioned. The Bank, The Swan, Corner Pin some others that have gone. Gilpins was a regular for years when I used to come in from Enfield way, think that's now closed (?). Bill Nic was a solid go to as well (previously Northumberland Arms). Nowadays... Beehive mostly.

Always generally avoided Coach and Horses, Bricklayers and No. 8 just for packed.

Can't recall ever going in Olive Branch or Elbow Rooms.

Yeah think it's about a decade since the BQ was shut down. As you say used to wait for the train there if we where heading home soon after the game. If it was going to be a late one usually head up to the Phoenix (LTs now).

Alan Gilzean's preferred watering hole after a game, according to popular belief.

Used to float between there and The Northumberland Arms back in the early 90s.
Used to let us in at 10am in the Northumberland, nudge Nudge, Wink Wink.
