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.

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.

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
