Pubs and Grub
The Arkles pub (L4 0TJ), which is situated conveniently near the stadium and around the corner from a decent fish and chip shop, is popular with away fans. It does, however, get very busy from 1pm onwards.
The Flat Iron (L4 0SY) on Walton Breck Road welcomes a mix of home and away supporters. It has a good selection of beers, ales, and spirits, is relatively cheap, and is only a 15-minute walk from the ground.
For families, there is a small ‘Fanzone’ located near to the away turnstiles. This area is open to away fans and serves food and alcohol.
Homebaked (L4 0UF) is a community land trust and co-operative bakery situated on the boundary between the neighbourhoods of Everton and Anfield, just opposite Liverpool’s stadium. It sells pies and other assorted pastries, while also serving as a drop-off point for foodbank donations.
Inside the ground
Away supporters are housed in Anfield Road Stand, which is located behind the goal at the north end of the stadium.
Robbie Fowler holds Liverpool’s and the Premier League record of scoring the fastest hattrick in just 4 minutes and 33 seconds.
