The Rugby Groud Guide

Eating, Drinking & Sleeping

 

Eating and Drinking at The Ground           Behind the main stand there is a tent which sells, amongst other things, mussels and chips. The bacon baguettes are also meant to be good.

You can also get cider, wine and beer.

               

Club Shop            The club shop is underneath the main stand. A good souvenir is a Biarritz scarf.

               

Other Places to Eat & Drink          After the game it is best to head to the Clubhouse behind the main stand to enjoy the company of the local fans.

In the small and compact town centre there are many places to enjoy a drink.

Le Mannekenpis bar and brasserie, on the seafront, has a big screen, as does Le Royalty on Place Georges Clemenceau.

The Irish Pub on Avenue Victor Hugo is also popular with fans.

Other bars for rugby heads include the Newquay  Pub on Places Georges Clemenceau and Red Cafe on Avenue Marchal Foch

Have a beer at Hotel Le Caritz and you may see owner   Pascal Ondarts, the Basque prop who made his French debut in the "Battle of Nantes" against New Zealand in 1986.

               

Accomodation   Biarritz is a popular holiday destination and is literally bursting with hotels so finding somewhere to stay should not be a problem.

The tourist office has a full list of places to stay.
