Staff training required: my son asked for a pint of Fuller’s while pointing at the tap… totally confused the server until he changed his mind and asked for London Pride.

Same here would buy 6 again Saturday if they were in S106 but I'll be buying nothing instead
You can go and walk along through to the S 105 entrance at half time ??

I did it from S 102 to S 103 last night

I can understand the confusion here. ;)

I doubt that they have any idea who brews London Pride.

Not one to really complain but absolutely limited options for kids. I brought some snacks for my daughter from home. Some fries/ chips would be handy (but just got kids).

First time in S106/7 yesterday. Along with the bright floodlights the toilets were to few and the concession to small and busy. As a new roader I thought the time had past for waiting all half time for a beer. Back to N stand for me or try W when next cup game

S106 is the punishment block I think. Pleased to be out.

Reminds me of the retro themed 40th I went to where the caterers provided childhood food favourites. I asked the teenaged server what flavour Angel Delight they had. She looked doubtful and hazarded “Butternut Squash?” Best not to make assumptions about product knowledge!

Agree with this one. You can get hot dog/pizza at the 'Family area' in the North Stand but I don't see why they don't do chips/fries as well..

Haven’t eaten anything yet at the BCS. Does anyone know if the helpful staff in the West Stand offer a surreptitious ‘discount’ for cash purchases like they do (allegedly) in the away end? Asking for a friend.

No Vegan Pies in West Stand upper concourse on Saturday. Only Vegan Sausage rolls which was not pleasant.

Bad news at the Inverness, curry is no longer free. It is a massive bowl with poppadoms, nan bread for £1.50.
Sorry to let you know. I think they have put a pint of grog up to £3.40😔

I had the chicken burger on Saturday. The chicken was very nice, tasty KFC type batter and moist, well cooked chicken at a decent temperature. The spicy slaw was also good, though having heard reports of dryness I did add ketchup (handily available free at the till). The bun looked decent, more brioche than cheapo sesame, but a slightly odd crumbly/crispy texture, possibly from having been frozen and then heated/kept warm. Not cheap at £6 but better quality than a GP horseburger.

As a diabetic I didn’t miss the option of chips (which I’d probably not have resisted and then regretted when testing my blood sugar before the drive home) and it was good for me to leave a bit of the bun.

As an aside, the takeaway burgers being sold at the Express looked very good (£6.50 I think but I didn’t linger to check out properly as I wanted to get in the ground in good time for kick off).

The new stadium is fantastic. I'm in the Dugouts. Food and drinks are fine and service is quick. But the ventilation in the bar area is terrible. And anyone noticed the blast of hot air from above in the entrance to the bar? Someone said it's to do with the beer cooler (?) Who can I contact at the club with my feedback?

We've just been held to a draw by Liverpool in an enthralling football match. I'm just wondering how many people missed a single minute of the action because they needed to get to the bar early or to have a snack.

I had fingernails as a light snack towards the end.

I arrived 45 mins inside the ground before kickoff. Went to bar and ordered £5 grolsch. I watched all 95 minutes of this game. And then had another beer at the kiosk afterwards, reflecting that we drew with the 6 times champions of Europe. I left the ground and went to Conolleys in Chiswick High Rd. I got home at 02:30 am the next day.

I woke up at 11:00 and watched the game back on sky and realised I'm was not dreaming.

I had a pint in the dugout post match, samosas as everyone has said are excellent. The only gripe on the beer was the staff preparing for the rush had a number of half poured pints that they subsequently filled up with a fresh pour. I don’t know how long they had sat there but mine (lager) was warm despite the top up,they need an alternative plan to best meet demand while still giving a decent pint.

Saw one of those £4.50 sausage rolls before the game, piddly little thing, and I know a piddly little sausage when I see one sadly :(

Unreal that people pay that much, my local shop do a similarly sized one for £1, without what appeared to be mouse sh*t on top as well.

Just wondering what your take is on the services being provided, slow service, are you happy with poncey food selection or inept staff behind the bars two members to serve one punter ? Or only one bottle opener in the dug out bar . Hopefully by raising the gripes they mr levy company can work to sort them out .I haven’t seen the clubs results of a survey carried out socan’t praise the club for forward thinking”

£4.50 for a sausage roll does seem a bit excessive.

Those burgers are ace.

I really liked the hotdog I had on Saturday...the bread was very good. I'm sure the 4 pints I had pre-match helped, but it was very good!

Thanks. If I ever work out who the old coffee boy is I’ll be sure to berate him for not having told me.

Same caterer today at West Ham...but another 50p on pie and hot drink prices. Identikit catering at multiple stadiums is rather disappointing as used to enjoy sampling different fare around the country.

Hopefully the offering will change occasionally. Pie and sausage rolls is probably high margin but a long way from the innovative offerings we were suggested might be on offer.

Also, and slightly off topic, the hot dogs were hidden away at West Ham and not seen until we were on our way into the bowl, pie in hands.

At Wolves and now Wet Spam despite hving an indentical caterer both times we were able to get our hands on a chicken balti that we are yet to have available to purchase at BCS in S106 despite it being listed on the "menu"

That was annoying to say the least although my pie was ok.
