FOOTBALL fans looking for a bite to eat and a pint before Pompey’s next home game can find refuge at The Golden Eagle.

The Southsea pub, in Delamere Road, is cooking a barbecue in aid of Help for Heroes before the Blues’ clash with Blackpool at Fratton Park on Saturday, September 24.

A tasty selection of hot dogs and burgers will be dished up for the charitable cause.

The event is free and hungry locals just need to turn up and make a small donation.

All profits from the day, which starts at 12.30pm, will go towards the charity.

The pub have laid on a barbecue before two Pompey home matches since landlady Louise Bastable, 46, and her husband Cliff Charter, 54, took charge in June.

Louise said: ‘We decided to do this because Help for Heroes is a great cause and all the barbecues we do are great.

‘People can pop by for a beer and a burger, go off to the Pompey match and then come back for more food and a drink.

‘It’s all about feeding the troops before they go off to watch the game and enjoy themselves.

‘There will be plenty of relish, onions and sauce so people can get stuck in.’

Cliff said: ‘It’s all great fun and the atmosphere is always good when we run it.

‘Nobody gets filthy rich running a pub nowadays so for us it’s all about getting the community together.’
