Honest Lawyer in Scunny

Posted by sm1d on December 2, 2008

hlawyer-wwwfootballandrealaleguidecouka-streddes-guideI made my first trip to Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire for United’s home game with Leicester City at the top of Football League One at Glanford Park.

My first port of call, just around the corner from the train station, was the Honest Lawyer (surely that’s a metaphor!…Ed) on Oswald Road, which was formerly the home of a Co-op Society grocery store, when opened in 1935.  Unfortunalty it was just a fleeting visit, as I was meeting up with some of the 100FGC squad at the Wetherspoons ‘Blue Bell’ pub further down the street. However I found the pub to have a great atmosphere and seems very friendly and welcoming, as well as a good beer selection there’s also food to be had, which looks top quality, served on big plates with generous helpings. The Honest Lawyer is handly placed next to the train station, so is a good stop off point while waiting for your train, making it the ideal place to start and finish a visit to Scunthorpe.
