It's a little bit out of the way, so I had to get a cab there but it was a very reasonable 4 quid. The stadium is a bit more ramshackle than I thought it woud be seeing as it's an ex-league ground. The facilities are quite basic.

When we travel we like to take in a game of football while we are there. Small club so we know what to expect. Son loved it being able to stand pitch side with his portion of chips and hot chocolate. Not like our usual venue, West Ham. If you love football go and support the local team for a... More

As away supporters from Lincoln, my wife and I booked seats in the away area seating (we are 69) plus the pre match meal in the VIP Lounge. The whole experience was first class starting with the personal attention we received from Sharon Cox, the Commerial Manager, who led us to the Lounge, then, just before kick off walked us... More

The referee had a shocker and Dover couldn't defend. 116 fans in the away end who were treated to a very limited food outlet.

Went into the Boots and Laces bar and the people were great,in fact everyone we met were lovely. When we're back in Devon we'll... More

Went to see a very entertaining game between Torquay United and Plymouth Argyle for a pre season friendly. Not the usual friendly that can lack competitiveness but played in a high tempo to result in a thoroughly entertaining game. Great view from the very impressive Bristow's Bench main stand. Looking forward to hopefully another great game on Monday the 1st... More

Situated not far from the Babbacombe area of Torquay Plainmoor is a modern ground enough ground having good amenities that help create a good atmosphere, good stewards and a decent spacious home bar Boots and Laces that allowed us in on our visit to watch Barrow AFC play.

We went their to see Tranmere won 1-0 at Torquay United. The catering should bring more food like pies but sadly it's not enough to eat like burgers and hot dog. Stewards were helpful as well
