penguins' review of Oakwell

I have visited Oakwell on numerous occasions and always find it a really good atmosphere, even against teams who bring little away support you can always be assured of a noisy crowd who seem to revel in buoying there team along.


The ground is only a few hundred metres from the town centre.


I have sat in all of the stands on different visits and apart from a few pillars in the old stand it's a perfect view. The seats are comfortable enough and the leg room is better than the majority of grounds I've visited.


The lavatories are clean, and apart from the inevitable half time build up they're plenty large enough.

Food & Drink

The food is reasonably priced and the pies are very good. I had meat and potato and was pleasantly surprised to find a more than average amount of meat in my delicious pie.

Police & Stewards

No problems.


The atmosphere is amazing it's as if every game is a cup final for these fans.
