Any decent pubs? Either try a pub at the London terminus you’ve arrived at, or use the Wetherspoons that City fans generally meet at. This the Barking Dog, by the exit of Barnet tube station. The Tube station is a couple stops earlier than Dagenham East.

There is a social club at the ground, which has accepted away supporters in the past.
