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.

Is Relegation on the way out? (Tue, 06 Aug 2019)
Rugby union coverage, what there is, is dominated by the up-coming Japan world cup. The club game ( the Premiership doesn’t start until mid-October) barely rates a mention, but on September 13, the RFU Council will meet to vote on a controversial proposal to create a 13-team Premiership; should the move be passed, it’s expected … Continue reading Is Relegation on the way out?

The competition is now … Continue reading For once, Football seems intent on imitating Rugby

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
