As a Premium Seat holder (x2) I don't expect too much sympathy but having seen various comments on other parts of the ground I felt the need to post on this subject (never posted before by the way)
As a long standing supporter and like most on here having occupied all of the areas of Griffin Park over the years the time had come for a bit of comfort. Being able to afford Premium seats then seemed to be the way to go.
However in reality we have a lounge albeit very nice does not have enough seating for all members, and we have two food choices per game - sort of posh nosh but not that good, one of which is vegetarian(£12.00 a go). The bar staff do not know what the drinks are that they are serving (that includes Pride in some cases!) I'd love a samosa or a pie choice by the way!
To really compound the overall issue was that the seats behind me were passed on to Brighton fans on Saturday - sadly I think this will be regular, nothing stopping me doing the same apart from I'm attending all the games myself.
The price for this now works out at £118.42 per game (includes program, half time pie and one drink). They email me ahead of match days to offer me one course meal with a guaranteed seat and drinks for an extra £69.00 per head!
In hindsight it's my mistake (the bottle of wine they gave me at the presentation didn't help), effectively stuck with the prawn sandwiches brigade but without the actual sandwiches.
Hopefully like other areas these issues can be improved upon over time - I suppose at least the money goes towards the club, I will be looking to switch back to the land of sanity if I get the chance.
I would be interested in any other Premium seat supporters views and comments.

Although not a PSH holder myself, I have heard similar rumblings from many that have experienced the same. Also sponsors doing the same...

Which lounge are in you BTW?

I recognise your feelings as I have experienced something similar - buyers regret, maybe? I bought my two PSTs (in the Legends, so no free pie) because by the time that I was eligible for an ST, what I considered the most desirable parts of the ground were sold out. I bit the bullet and went for the - considerably - more expensive option. The downsides are that there are few other benefits - a free programme and half time drink. The drinks can be hard to find as they are hidden behind people sitting at tables.

The benefits are the comfy seat in a great location and somewhere to hang out before and after the game. I have found the staff very helpful - both onsite and via email. I guess that the pain has already been experienced in paying for the license 18 months ago and the monthly DD debit means that the money is sort of 'hidden', so my thoughts are 'it is what is it' and I couldn't have imagined when turning up to a 4th dsisivion game as a teenager 50 years, that our next home league game is against Liverpool!

I'm in the railway lounge and my seat in block 302 . I have not sat next to the same person for all 3 games . Also in all 3 game the people next to me have have not bothered to come out and watch the 2nd half. The have just stayed in the lounge drinking the free beer that is left after everybody has had their halftime drinks . At the Arsenal game i had arsenal fans above me also to the side of my dad . The food options need to be reviewed as you can only buy posh food for £12 a head or a sit down meal for £69 . There is nowhere to get a burger or similar or a bar of chocolate etc . I have feed this last bit back to the club and said that there needs to be somewhere to get this type of food .
As has been said the lounge is lovely and the view from my padded seat is outstanding but my overall match experience could and should be better for the price .

I nabbed a ticket in Premium courtesy of work so my view is somewhat skewed but I though the Fortress experience was generally great. It's not mega mega premium, but i like the relaxed nature of it all. Chicken burger before was lovely i thought and half time pie was decent too.

The bar staff are clearly not experts but honestly its not a big deal. We got the drinks we wanted. Nice to have somewhere to hang out and have a drink while the crowds at Kew Bridge station die down.

It's a good start from the club in my opinion

Interesting. As far as the away fans behind you thing is concerned I guess this will happen if any hospitality packages are available to away supporters? I've bought packages with mates at away grounds on a number of occasions and seen boxes full of Bees fans at places like Wycombe and even QPR. Done so myself at Fulham and Stevenage.

I think the posh seats were inevitably going to be slightly disappointing an experience for long term fans. Sitting in comfort but with away/neutral hospitality fans will be rather different to GP. The tickets are a lot more expensive so there’d be an expectation of amazing delights beyond just an indoor lounge and a more relaxed queue for a drink.

We are in The Railway. Chose that so that I could keep an eye on train station platform chaos post match, that’s not going to well either so far!

I’m sure one of the “selling points” for Premium seats is that they can be transferred to anyone who wants a ticket. Which probably means nothing to the “proper” Brentford fan, but it’s an incentive for the people buying these seats on behalf of companies etc

I can see on twitter that there is an Arsenal/Brentford “fan” who has three Premium seats and is offering 2 of those seats to anyone who wants them, looks to have sold 1 seat for the Arsenal match for £100.

Trying to work out if that is sarcasm …
No not me mate, the only time i get sarcastic is when people have a pop at me. I fancied the PST .but then i thought as long as i can get a drink and a com fy seat that will do for me. The licence bit was the downer for me re pst, the life is a bitch thing is what we have now, to what we had then. I suppose the PST suits some and not others, fo me I’m of the latter. But whatever the case it is so much better. At least we now have choices.

Disagree. As someone that catches the train I am finding it pretty efficient. It's certainly crowded, but I make the same train as I would have from GP and the extra trains certainly help to shift everyone quickly.

The only gripe I have with this is brighton getting tickets in our end.

The rest would be expected with premium

No its not being rinsed, all this hospitality requires more staff and they need to be paid. No one is forcing the issue. Do the club have any boxes that they hire out as i would love to this for a game?
I think we only have 3 boxes and Mr B has one of those. Not sure about the other 2. The preferred model was hospitality lounges hence we get 3,000 premium seats compared to the 60 odd hospitality at GP. That's a huge difference in income!

Useful feedback. Hope the experience improves for those who took the plunge… Neutral/away fans is always going to happen in the posh seats, as long as they behave and respect home fans it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

We’re in the Railway and agree about the food ‘choice’, although our habit has long been to get there early and eat locally before going in and that’s going to continue, so it doesn’t really bother us. The staff will eventually get to know what they’re doing, I hope. We seem to have home fans around us, although seats in the row in front have have different people in them. My only complaint is the walk to the toilet and they’re crowded but anything’s better than New Road.

In the lounge before BHA, we agreed it’s still very alien after all the years at GP but we’ll live with it until it seems normal. At least my knees don’t get a bashing!

Also think as time goes by the club would have learnt a lot more.

I pay £187.50 per month which is crazy when I think about what I’ve always paid in the past. Luckily I’m in a position to afford it and as I’m getting on a bit i thought bugger it (just don’t tell the wife)
I really like the seat, view, stadium, lounge area and ease to get into the ground.
I would like to see better food options and a bit cheaper.
Bit annoying in the 1st game to find myself sitting next to a couple of clearly extremely well off and old Arsenal fans (mind you for some reason they looked a bit miserable😂)
But like others have said I’m happy to help put money into the club as it’s ridiculous where we now find ourselves and think where we might have been.

I'm a PSH in the Railway Lounge having been a long time season ticket holder on the Ealing Road at GP. My circumstances changed around the time that the new stadium was coming online, so I chose to take the package as I could afford to do so. There are many things that we were told we were going to get as part of our PSH packages that haven't materialised since signing up.

We receive an e-mail with link to an online questionairre to complete a few days after each home game asking about our "experience". Points/suggestions are raised, but the club has yet to have the decency to reply to these!

There are a number of people in the Railway Lounge who are disappointed with aspects of the package. I suspect there is similar in it's sister lounge The Orchard?

I had never done any previous type of hospitality but myself and 3 mates opted for the legends lounge package ( Is a free programme & a bottle of beer even classed as doing hospitality?) Anyway by far the most important factor was the view, high up near the centre circle, and having missed numerous goals at GP on Ealing road whilst nipping out 5mins before HT to join a queue for a beer or a wee, the prospect of the lounge zero/low queue times appealed to me.
I haven’t been disappointed I’m surrounded by lively genuine bees fans and as yet haven’t sniffed out a opposition fan.

I’m in the Ledgends lounge.

Seats are great - still can’t get used to being able to see all of the pitch without shifting around in my seat ( I was in New Road ). Although there are quite a few who miss parts of the match to make use of the hospitality and free half-time drink, the atmosphere is fine, which was a worry for me when I bought the ticket.
Watching football is the reason I come to the stadium so although I do have some gripes, my overall impression is positive.

Food option needs a re-think. Seen very few people purchasing food and am sure that the price and limited options play a part in this. I’d be a regular purchaser of samosas or any other snacks, but will never go for the overpriced fare that currently on offer.

Thought the licence fee was a pisstake when I bought and only went for 3 years as I can never be sure of my finances that far ahead. Now realise that if I can’t afford to carry on with premium, I could still sell every match day ticket at a tidy profit so my future finances are irrelevant. Not sure how good it would be for the club to have people who sell on the majority of their tickets though.

I'm in the DO, but sampled how the other half... with the FGR match. TBH I don't think we are missing much. View on par, atmosphere much better in DO, food choice better 4 me in DO & more affordable. Half time pie too small, we did help ourselves to more than one bottle at H/T mind, but assumed that was a fluke.

Each to their own but I love being in the dugout
:imwith:
Have really enjoyed the DO experience.
View is absolurely brilliant.
Full of old familiar faces with the ability to turn into noisy boys when required.
Bar area is great for wandering around and saying hello to different groups.
Would like some proper cask beer but probs not practical really.
Really pleased we made the right decision (for us).

I am in the DO, have had to drive so not had a great deal to drink. But a great place to be. Would think one of the best parts of the stadium.

My experience as a Premium Seat Holder pretty much mirrors the above except i wasn,t given a bottle of wine at the presentation event ! I,m in the Railway and sit with three other long term Bees fans who like me thought we deserved the upgrade after our years following the Bees, around 50 in my case, The seats and view of the game are excellent and the near access to the loo and the lounge are good too.
In the lounge space is at a premium ( no pun intended ) close to kick off and at half time. We tend to arrive fairly early so have always found a table and the queues for the bar o.k.
There are quite a few "faces " in the lounge,and we had a really good chat with Martin Allen before the Arsenal game. He joined us at our table and told a string of stories from his time at the club,the best being from the Southampton cup game. As we know a real character. Worth the admission fee alone.
My only real gripe is the lack of real supporters close to where we sit. Lots of different faces at each match. None have revealed themselves as away supporters, but seem to show no enthusiasm or real interest in the game at all. Perhaps corporate guests or similar?
I feel much the same on the food on offer in the Lounge A choice of reasonably priced snacks would be nice.
It is expensive,but i guess par for the course with similar facilities at other clubs. Although great to be at this level the price increase from Championship to Premier was rather painful. I can,t complain on those grounds though as it was in the contract. Always read the small print !

I wonder if there might be an opportunity for the club to let those lounge-dwellers that "commit" to attending each game themselves (rather than give away to their customers/employees etc.) to sit together or take over one of the TW8/R&W lounges, leaving the other for the "guests"....

Maybe have one lounge with seats only transferable to members with a discount and the others freely transferable but at a higher price?

I agree that the questionairre is generic, but for the price I'm paying I'd expect a phone call from the Premium Seat team rather than me having to phone them, which if I did I'd probably get to the front of the queue only to be cut off if it's the same system as the box office!

That's the River Cafe opposite Putney Bridge station. A very nice place normally!

I was in the Railway Lounge for the FGR match and for £35 it was certainly value for money just for the padded seat, position/view and lounge access. Ive made my feelings clear on the ‘pie’ so I will say no more! I can’t make the Oldham match but if we get through (is it even in doubt?) then hopefully if we’re home again (which on the laws of average we probably shouldn’t be) then I may be tempted to try one of the lounges again or the Dugout (not sure if that is classed as a ‘lounge’ or ‘hospitality’?).

I think I've been in all of them (except The Orchard), but not for a PL match so can't comment on the away fan infiltration.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Oxford and Cambridge for the Forest Rovers game. I can't think of anything sub-par about it. I was actually kicking myself for giving up the 2 seats that I had reserved in there - especially after we got promoted as that would have kept the GPG going every season :)

Food was way better than I have had at any stadium or large function. Seats were brilliant. Service was very pleasant and relatively attentive. Lounge wasn't full (say 50%) but can't really find anything negative to say about it.

If you get a chance then I would give it a go. Surprised the club doesn't offer it up for lowly Cup matches (FGR and Oldham).

There should be a discount for the O&C lounge for Oxbridge graduates.

I'm sure you've eaten dinner since graduating.
That’s not how you take the MA (was a fiver plus waiting 21 terms from matriculation iirc). I’ve only dined in college since because I went back to do postgrad a few years on (ironically yielding a degree called a Bachelors so making the MA worthwhile) and went to a friend’s wedding. Anyway, very off topic.

I was in S201 for the LI game today, never realised I'd have access to a lounge. I'm not sure which lounge I was in as didn't look for the sign and was shown in by helpful staff but think it was the "Legends'. The padded seat was very comfortable and view of the pitch fantastic. I planned to try the food but just didn't fancy any of the options so settled for a Twik to tie me over until post game. The Lounge itself was very comfortable with good facilities and Peroni was perfect which of course I could drink at my seat watching the game due to it being Rugby.

Was that via a LI Season Ticket?
If you don't mind me asking, what is the price range for LI STs??
