grifftinfoilhat's review of Whaddon Road

A rare Saturday off and in need of a football fix saw me head to Whaddon Rd for a pre season friendly between Cheltenham and the Posh. Cheltenham is a lovely town full of lovely pubs so I was well looking forward to it. The Posh ended up taking the Robins apart and I couldn't help feeling it was to be another difficult season in store for town.

Location

It's about 10-15 minute walk from the town centre, but it's a very pleasant walk. No trudged through industrial estates or dodgy areas here. The train station is way out of town though. If you can, make a stop at the Kemble Brewing Co, a little pub in the backstreets. Excellent.

View

Sat in the grandstand. Had a choice of old school wooden seats or knackered looking plastic ones. Anything other than the front row and there is zero legroom. In the front row a metal bar ran straight across my eyeliner obscuring the view. Should have stood on the terrace.

Facilities

There were toilets. They weren't Great. But this is League 2.

Food & Drink

Standard burgers hot dogs and pukka pies. What I liked was a tupper ware container with salad in so you can put lettuce and tomato in your burger. Hot dog bland and dull.

Atmosphere

Cheltenham made quite a bit of noise to be fair, the attendance was just over a thousand and it was a pre season friendly but they definitely made themselves heard. Especially as the game went on and Peterbrough kept scoring goals. Only about 20 from Peterborough.
