"Part football ground, part museum"

has rated Oakwell 4.0 out of 5.

wonderwasp's review of Oakwell

The pictures tell the story. Three big, well-appointed stands and one museum piece. The old stand looks completely incongruous but I am always pleased that it's still there.

Location

Lots of space around and in a proper football environment.

View

I expect that sitting in the seats in front of the ancient stand is pretty uncomfortable but the other three sides are fine. I remember when away fans got to stand on a slagheap. Now, on the same piece of ground, there's a really impressive stand.

Facilities

All good.

Food & Drink

Not tried.

Police & Stewards

Never caused any trouble that I can recall.

Atmosphere

The only drawback is that the away end is rarely full and so unless a big crowd is expected much of it is left empty. The Barnsley fans can lose patience quite easily but when they are in the mood to let rip then they can really make some noise.
