Alistair Watts, general manager of the pub, said: “There are plenty of lagers (at pub prices), pool, Sky and the BT Sport game live on TV.

“The pub has ‘Exotic dancers’ and lap dancing, from lunchtime. No admission charge and you don’t have to watch the dancers unless you want!

“Sorry, but no under 18’s.”

Mr Watts added that the pub is “about 30 minutes from the ground at a brisk walk” and that the dancers are “hugely popular” with visiting supporters.

Speaking after the pub opened on match day, Alistair said: “I’ve already heard some of the guys say, ‘I wish we had something like this in Ipswich’.

“There are three lovely ladies in here with them today. They all do seem surprised, but the reaction has been quite good.

“They seem like a nice bunch of guys. They’re pretty good towards the girls.”

“We have positioned ourselves as the ‘away fans’ pub, so that they can feel perfectly safe here, with no arguments from Wycombe Wanderers fans.

“The dancers are hugely popular, and I hear lots of away fans saying they wish they had something like it in their towns.

“The biggest turnouts we get are when Portsmouth or Oxford come and play here.

“We get lots of stag parties and work do’s coming in here. It’s all good fun,” he added.

“We’re licensed by Wycombe District Council. You have to be very careful what you can do these days.

“The days of pulling some unfortunate up on stage with the dancers are long gone.

“But getting to have a pint and a chat with some pretty girls, what’s not to like?.

“The police like it too, because it means on match days they know the away fans are in here and not running around Wycombe causing trouble. They’re comfortable with it.”
