Default Maidstone (A) - where can I meet fellow Reds pre-match

I'm in London for a week and next Saturday I have a choice between Oxford Street shopping and Maidstone. Where and when will other Reds be meeting up, either in London or Maidstone?

This is the London Reds plan mate if it helps.
We will be going to the Flower Pot pre game though I'd expect we'll probably have a quick one in the Wetherspoons next to Maidstone East station first.
I don't know if they let away fans in the social club at the bar - for one reason or another haven't been to Maidstone when we've played them before so this is my first visit. Others might know but I'm assuming if this is our plan that you can't get beer in the ground/social club as away fans.

Maidstone v. Wrexham K.O. 15:00 Saturday 17th November 2018

The London Reds will be travelling down to Kent. The nearest station to the ground is Maidstone East and trains are from Victoria and take about an hour. Train times are 25 and 55 minutes past the hour. Fare is £19.10 but you can get tickets for £15.80 in advance.

We will be getting the 10:55, which, for our South East London members, calls at Bromley South at 11:12, arriving at Maidstone East at 11:57.

Our usual pub in Maidstone is a good real ale pub called the Flower Pot about 10 minutes walk from Maidstone East. The ground is about 10 minutes walk from the pub. There is also a Spoons pub next to the station.

Admission is £15 on the terrace and £18 in the stand.

I work with a guy from Maidstone and he has recommended the following boozers in the town centre:

The Brenchley (Traditional Freehouse) Maidstone

There are pubs closer to the ground but he doesn't follow the fortunes of the football club & always drinks in the town centre.

Hi, Maidstone fan here. The Flowerpot is in the Good Beer Guide and is an excellent choice if you like real Ale. The Whetherspoons next to the station, Called The Society Rooms, is also in the good beer guide and is quite decent for a spoons pub and is where quite a few Stones fans gather before the game. You won't have access to the clubhouse but there is a bar under the away stand. For a detailed breakdown of pubs in Maidstone there is a topic our forum http://maidstoneunitedfc.proboards.c...tone-pub-guide

Thanks for confirming the position about the clubhouse dave. Appreciated. Great link as well.

Have a good season, apart from Saturday obviously, and hopefully you'll also get a good FA Cup draw tonight.

Any reds on the half 10 train from Cardiff to London? Hopefully feeling the effects of a night out in Cardiff after we smash the Danes 1-0.

I got there early last year and had a nice couple of local ales in the away end which were v reasonably priced for the South East! One of the nicer grounds at this level just hope we get a better result than last year and don't get the same ref!!

Just a quick heads up. The M20 is closed this weekend between junctions 4 and 6. Official diversion is via the M2 and A229 Blue Bell Hill but might be worth allowing extra time for those driving.
