Due to the location of Loftus Road there are plenty of pubs in the vicinity with several being available with less than a two minute walk away. A local favorite is the Albertine which is around a 15 minute walk away and is a bar in Wood Lane that offers food as well for pre or post-match. They are a wine bar but also sell real ale and beer which makes it great for a mixed group of people on match day.
If you are after something a little closer, the British Queen Pub is under a ten minute walk away and usually offers happy hour, discount prices on match day and has traditional pub games such as darts and fruit machines on offer. They also offer a small traditional pub menu (along with vegetarian options), live sport, real ale and is accessible for the disabled.
It is important to note that while there isn’t a specific “QPR” bar or pub, some of the local pubs have doormen outside who can (inconsistently) turn away travelling supporters so if you are wearing away colors you may not get into your first choice of pub! (luckily there are plenty of options).
The place for QPR fans to drink on a game day is The Springbok Pub on South Africa Road, right next to the stadium, this South African themed pub is a hit for QPR fans every week. As such you can expect it to get fairly busy, quite early in the day. Luckily there are several pubs in the Shepherd’s Bush area that welcome QPR home fans; such as the Crown and Sceptre which is renowned for its Thai food as well as its atmosphere. The White Horse is on bustling Uxbridge Road and offers a throwback to yesteryear, being quite old fashioned and full of QPR memorabilia. Unfortunately, there aren’t many options for away fans around the ground with many pubs employing bouncers to make sure of this. Belushi’s Bar in Shepherd’s Bush is the official away pub, but with a capacity of 300, it can get full quickly!
It’s a bit of a sorry tale around Loftus Road as there are very few pubs that accept away fans; in fact, if you’re not a QPR fan you’ll be refused entry to most nearby bars. However, if you’re an out-of-towner reppin’ a new Hoops top, you should be fine. The Colton Arms is something of a favourite among home fans looking for a relaxing vibe.
