Drinking at the ground:

Kingston Park is well served by bars and food outlets, although the queues can still get long at times. There are three public bars (as opposed to corporate bars at the top of the West Stand):

-East Stand Clubhouse (The Hiding Place)

-South Stand Bar: Covered Terracing

-West Stand Bar: Covered Seating Area

However, it should be noted that when you have entered the ground through the turnstiles you can only go into the bar in the stand you have purchased a ticket for, except if your ticket is for the North Stand, where you can use the facilities in the West Stand concourse.

After the game, you can meet in any bar around the stadium.

There are two food outlets in the West Stand.

The large bar under the main West Stand is where you’ll find entertainment, presentations, and players after the match, while the Hiding Place bar in the East Stand is usually open after the match.

Bars near the Ground:

Whilst Newcastle is well served by good hostelries, there is only one reasonably close to Kingston Park:

Close to Bank Foot station, the Twin Farms is a good stopping off point for those travelling by metro

On match days you can park in the car park for a fee, which is deducted from your food bill.

Eating and Drinking in the Area:

Newcastle has every type of bar you could imagine.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)

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?
