To be fair the drink options were not bad. £5 a pint for Grotsch is reasonable. London Pride £5.50.

But the lack of choice for food was abit disapointing.
I didn't think too bad. Pizza (Margherita / Pepperoni), Hot Dogs, BBQ Chicken Burgers, Falafel Flatbread, Sausage Rolls, Pie (Chicken Balti / Moroccan Tomato & Chickpea), Lamb Shawarma.

What were you hoping for? Maybe a Hamburger / Cheeseburger option would have been good. Not sure if options change match to match.

It appears different kiosks offer different menus. So you que at the kiosk, get to the front (order drink) and then your kind of stuck with what their offering food wise at that kiosks. Unless, you walk all down 4 kiosks first. Read the menue And then que up.
Half time is only 15 minutes.

Likely they'll stay pretty much the same so I guess you'll get to go the place that serves what you want. 2 kiosks were the same so it was 3 different options.

For anyone else interested...these were the full menus in North Stand...

They had Guiness and Cider. Alot of TW8 fans will be pleased.

Hot dogs don't look bad. No cheeseburgers with onions, modern football eh?. Cheers. 😆

No proper burgers at all!

My personal opinion we should open a new thread on this. We should have a sack the BIAS board and JV thread for no burgers and onions. 😉

Never mind the quality of the football on offer, we campaigned for 30 years for our onions with our burgers and we end with Pizza and wraps. Its a disgrace. 😆

The BIAS committee gets sacked every year but somehow they keep voting me back in

Your far too polite Hobbsy.

You should tell me to f*** off to McDonald's and other burger options are also available elsewhere. 😆

Serouisly, have a great weekend every one. We have lots to forward too.

Take care.

Kiosks not bad for the first time they ever opened. Two Prides provided quickly with 2-3 minutes waiting. Luxury compared to Griffin Park.

I’ve never had Pride that cold before, could have been anything!
Also no chips to go with the no cheeseburgers.
You had Cheeseburgers? Others were saying 'no burgers available' - sounds like a Phil Collins Album.

There was slight confusion after the game yesterday about ST holders getting access to the dugout bar after the game. We was obviously told during our ST sitting when we picked our seats that after the game we could wander round to the dugout bar, and if capacity allowed we could come in for a drink, keeping fans in the stadium spending money whilst also allowing the crowds to die down a bit. About 20 people were allowed access from downstairs by showing our tickets but we’re stopped at the dugout bar main door. To be fair once we explained the situation to the senior steward and he made a quick phone call we were allowed in, I know there will always be slight teething issues with everything but I hope going forward all the stewards know what the process is obviously depending on capacity limits of the bar. Apart from that yesterday was a very enjoyable experience and I’m looking forward to next Saturday now.

Fully agree with you, It was the coldest and most tasteless pint of Pride I've ever had, it was so cold there was no head on it at all, it was horrible, ideal for lager, but beer, Nooooo!!, fair do's to them I called to a person who looked in charge and told them of the problem, and they changed it to a pint of Lager, so well done, But hope they can get the temperature right next time, Did anyone else have the same problem? or was it just from the East Stand tap mine came from.

Was the same in the South for the play-off game – we commented at the time but who on earth wants beer that cold?

And how was it once you got in? Was it worth the effort?

Yes it was definitely worth it, really nice bar, loads of space, tv’s with sky sports on which will probably be showing the later games during the season and really polite and friendly bar staff. I would highly recommend it especially if you have no rush to get home after the game

I have just sent a consumer email (found in contacts) to BFC partner Asahi who supply all our drinks needs including Fullers Pride at the new stadium questioning why Pride is so cold, they obviously had all the pumps and chilling mechanisms installed and set the temperature, Did nobody check that you don't pull up beer that cold, it's no problem for the lager, I wonder if I get a reply?

Menu in South Stand bar / kiosk yesterday
eae704d6-7de1-4aa9-b2f9-330c5b2e8b59.jpg
A couple of friends £5.50 for Pride seems a bit steep, and maybe a small discount would have encouraged people to get in to the habit of using the new bars?
Pride was £4.80 in early 2020 at GP, I am told, after an increase from £4.50.

Confectionery missed the spell checker too :(

Although the beer at Old Trafford the other night was not up to much, I liked their meal deal of beer, pie and choc/crisps for £8.50.
Perhaps a pie and pint deal at the new stadium should be considered, or other multi purchase deals ......

What you got in there afterwards? I wanted to walk around and do that to see what it is like as not sure there will be much opportunity when it is full. The steward seemed utterly clueless when I asked and just said it must be closed so we walked on. Oh well, maybe make an attempt after the Valencia game.

There is a picture in one of the other threads of the Family Area options, pizzas and hot dogs only on the sign for the kiddiewinks. Bit poor in these more health concious days, surely? Fruit bags could be offered, perhaps. At least they can get a bottle of cider I suppose.
