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.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch

There has been a lot of talk this season about rugby’s messy schedule. Concerns over a lack of alignment between the hemispheres, internationals in the middle of the season, the sheer number of games players are involved in and the length of the Six Nations tournament are all concerns for the men at the top. … Continue reading Aviva Premiership benefits from our chaotic calendar
