Eating and Drinking       

 The concourses are spacious, with food and beverage outlets, plus a number of television sets, for pre- and post-match entertainment. Refreshment-wise you will be greeted with a selection of hot and cold food ranging from pies to sausage and chips with the usual array of sweets and chocolate.

The steak and ale pie and chicken curry pie come recommended, but I am           advised that you should opt for chips only if you like them lukewarm (and that is        on a good day)

The Liberty Stadium has a supporters village bar, where there is also pre-match entertainment provided. If you are still thirsty after the match, head to the Riverside lounge behind the East Stand.

Next door to the Liberty is a Harvester pub and a Frankie and Benny’s restaurant. On the other side of Neath Road there are several more restaurants ,including an Italian, an Indian and a fish and chip shop.

               

Where Else to Eat and Drink:

The Bank Statement, 57 Wind Street, is a typical Wetherspoon's outlet, based in               a former bank, with Ruddles Best and Greene King Abbot as regulars and four rotating guest beers, plus the usual all-day pub grub.

No Sign Bar, 56 Wind Street, is next door, and offers a sharp contrast. It dates from 1690, is full of local history, and serves Young's London Gold and regular guest beers.

                                The Queen's Hotel, Gloucester Place, is handy for the Arts Centre and City Museum,                      and its walls are decorated with photos of Old Swansea. Beers include Buckley's                                        Best and Theakston Best - and the cooked lunches are highly rated.

                                The Wig, 134 St. Helen's Road, is an open-plan pub offering darts and pool, good                              food until 8pm and four hand pumps offering a rotating range of cask beers.

In terms of where to go before the game, award-winning local fish and chip shop Rossi's is opposite the ground and recommended by many, whilst there is also a selection of eateries around the ground including KFC, Pizza Hut, and a local Frankie and Benny's.

 

Accomodation

If you are staying in Swansea you are probably best advised to sleep in the city centre, rather than close to the Liberty, where there isn’t a lot to see and do.

There is a Marriott on the Waterfront, where there is also a branch of the Premier Inn and Morgan’s Hotel

The White House Hotel and Alexander Guest House are just outside the city centre.

The Dragon Hotel is located near to the railway station.

Saracens have just regained their European crown at the expense of holders Leinster. Anyone watching the game could not have failed to notice, be it on the corner flags or the obligatory bottles of “champagne” the Saracens players were spraying over each other after their victory, that Heineken were the sponsors. The competition is now … Continue reading For once, Football seems intent on imitating Rugby

It’s all about the Money (Wed, 03 Apr 2019)
It’s all about the Money It is the last bastion of rugby’s good old days in many, many ways.
