Great stadium to watch rugby even from the cheap seats and purity ale served from multiple stands. Really easy to reach by train from Nuneaton or Coventry definitely worth going to see a match 👍

Step back to 80s - the concert was a brilliant step back in time to when I met my now husband of 30 years. The Acts were amazing. A great mix of acts with little need for compere to keep you interested. Well worth the...More

Great night out at the 80’s night concert. Good facilities, ok car parking, good concert hall and drinks a fair price.

Nice looking stadium but way to big for a league 2 club with a dwindling fan base. We went to the Crewe game which was quite entertaining but it was very empty and lacked atmosphere. Pre match and half time facilities were very limited with...More

Just another souless, atmosphere free, clone stadium. Awful beer and food, useless and rude staff, and no real organisation. Too busy chasing your money to care about your experience. Jimmy Hill/Bruce Forsyth statue is impressive. Parking is awful, unless you want to be ripped off....More
