Molineux is  a great stadium, with good atmosphere, but the main drawback with a visit to to Wolves is the lack of away friendly pubs for visiting supporters to drink in. Now there are a number of pubs situated around the ground, but they do not admit away fans. Molineux is only a 10 minute walk away from the city centre where there are plenty of pubs to be found. However by far the greater majority of these are for home supporters only on matchdays (even the Wetherspoons has bouncers on the door demanding to see your match ticket for one of the home sections before being allowed entry). The Walkabout bar in the city centre (on Queen Street) seems to be now the designated pub for away fans to drink in. The bouncers on the door seem happy to admit visiting supporters.

There is a small bar called the Bluebrick inside the Premier Inn hotel, located near to the railway station, which seawander asia is being frequented by away fans. If arriving by train then as you leave the station entrance, turn right and you will see a walkway going down under the station. At the bottom of the walkway turn left and after a short walk you will see the Bluebrick over on your right. Also some away supporters have also been frequenting the Litten Tree in Victoria Street and the Goose in the City in Lichfield Street.

Away fans are housed in the lower tier of the Steve Bull Stand which runs along the side of the pitch. Up to 3,200 away supporters can be accommodated in this area. Fans are sat quite far back from the playing area, which gives the illusion that the pitch is larger than at most other grounds. Musical delights at the ground include just before kick off, 'Hi, Ho, Silver Lining' with the crowd singing 'Hi, Ho, Wolverhampton! The catering facilities within the ground are pretty good, serving a range of pies, including Steak & Kidney (£2.60) and Cheese & Onion (£2.60). Plus Cornish Pasties (£2.60) and Sausage Rolls (£2.40). In addition a foot long Hot Dog is on offer for £3.80, plus a 1/2 pound  Cheeseburger also at £3.80.
