I own up to never visiting Middlesborough for football reasons, so I have had to seek advice from elsewhere, and Doctor Browns, 135 Corporation Road TS1 2RR (01642 213213), a 10 minute walk from the ground is recommended in most quarters, serves food,and the last 2 ales I have noticed being served here are Everards Tiger and Caledonian Deuchars IPA
I can't remember who told me about The Star, 14 Southfield Road TS1 3BX (01642 245307), but it is another real ale pub in the town, and one that serves locally sourced real ale and food. I'd be grateful for more information please?  
The Swatter's Carr (Weatherspoons) 228 Linthorpe Road TS1 3QW (01642 2039060), is the only Middlesborough pub in CAMRA's 2014 Good Beer Guide, so you know what you'll get, decent priced ales and food!
