Change of venue to newly built 1875 club. Spotlessly clean in all facilities. Reasonable prices and good wine. Lovely location now from the south end of the ground. Food quality excellent and very efficient service. Highly recommended.

Visiting members of Somerset's opponents. We were treated well by the ground staff. Some of the Somerset members were a bit offhand. Good catering options although service in the new pavilion was very slow.

This is a remarkably friendly cricket ground and last Sunday was the venue for a thrilling T20 1/4 final for Somerset v Nottinghamshire. I recommend reserving seats viewing across the wicket.

Plenty of parking nearby, and next to an easy walk alongside the canal. A warm welcome at the gates.

Beautiful old fashioned ground on the edge of the river. Could do with better clearer signage outside. Inside it was a bit disjointed and certainly appeared to have been built without a plan. Atmosphere was great (T20 game) and all very friendly.

We visit the Cooper Associates County Ground to see Somerset play as much as we can each summer. The T20 Blast matches are particularly exciting, but it is just as good going to watch a day of a County Championship match. We always go to...More

I have only been in the new Somerset Pavillon which is at one end of the ground facing towards the river. I had a seat in the front row at ground level as I am not too good with heights! Suggest you ring the ground and speak... More
