Eating and Drinking at the Stadium:

                                                                                              

The main public bar within the ground is located in the Eithad Stand, which continues to serve drinks and usually has a live band after the match has finished. The bar is equipped with TVs so if there is a live match on before/after your match at the Stoop you can catch the action in comfort there. To the rear of the South Stand there is also a real ale bar, which if you can squeeze in is a good place to go if you're a fan (though there is little other than ale and soft drinks on offer). There are around 4 real ales, one of which is always a guest beer for that match. Finally, there are temporary bars in the South West and North West corners of the ground, serving up a variety of drinks nice and quickly.

The club sometimes run a happy hour before the game where you can grab two drinks for the price of one - just on the club's website in advance to find out if it is operating on your visit.

Before/After the Game

If you don't want to hang around the ground after the final whistle, there are a few options nearby in Twickenham itself.

  • The Cabbage Patch (nickname of the national stadium due to the land's previous use) operated by Fullers is within a short walk of the ground.
  • The London Road and Misty Moon are opposite and next door to the Cabbage Patch respectively, offering a cheap and cheerful alternative to the aforementioned.
  • The recently-refurbished Three Kings on Heath Road is also rugby-friendly.
  • The Eel Pie on the very pretty pedestrianised Church Street is another option.
  • The 17th Century White Swan has a pleasant location on the riverside, which means you have to walk in the opposite direction of the stadium when you exit the train station. Still a popular place on match day.
  • The Twickenham Tup is a large sports-friendly venue on Richmond Road, and a good place to meet up with friends.

At the time of writing every rugby writer (well at least those in the English papers) is obsessed with the success to date of the English side in the Six Nations, with two thumping wins out of two, and a contest in Cardiff on the horizon. But a few short weeks ago the pool stages … Continue reading England Team 2…..English Clubs 1

Rugby Union in limbo over Brexit as well (Wed, 02 Jan 2019)
The dog’s Brexit the government is making of leaving the European Union has put the organizers of the Premiership, Pro14 and the European Champions Cup in a state of nervous uncertainty with the prospect of no deal in place by the 29 March departure date growing.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open
