Eating and Drinking in the Stadium:

There are two main bars within the stadium to gather before, during and after the game. The Jazz Cafe (or JC's) is situated in the middle of the East Stand, whilst the North Stand bar (or Cowshed) is where you'll usually find live music on offer. There are several other bars dotted around the stadium for grabbing a quick pint. 

Food outlets are available in both the North and South stands, serving food typical for a football stadium. However, the Millenium Madejski Hotel built into the stadium offers two restaurants that have been recommended.

Alcohol is available inside the stadium, where Courage Bitter and Fosters Lager are on offer. Next to the ground on a retail park are a McDonalds, KFC and Pizza Hut.

 

There are no pubs as such near to the stadium, so it may be a good idea, especially if you are making the journey by train, to drink in the centre of Reading before a game.

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)

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.
