  • I am not a football fan so attended the stadium as a gust of a the University of South Wales. However the venue was excellent with a wonderful range of food and the staff were excellent. Great views of pitch and even did a little exploring of executive rooms.
  • They play football here and have lots of people chanting. Better when Wales play here and the pies are nice.
  • Great little stadium. Great atmosphere, especially for the Wales international games
  • Not a bad day out with mates. The club should be in the premiership.
  • Never had a bad experience here. Plenty of friendly staff on hand to help if needed
