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.

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?

Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems? (Tue, 17 Oct 2017)
  We could be witnessing the start of a perfect storm for English rugby:  too many clubs losing too much money, ever-increasing demands on players to the extent that strike action has been mentioned, and PRL’s latest whizz, the controversial suggestion that the domestic season should run from September through to the end of June. … Continue reading Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems?

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.
