Located near the centre of Taunton, it has a cricket shop, a restaurant/cafe open to the public on non-match days and out-of-season and in the Winter months a Sunday carvery.... More

Have been here for regular lunches for several years. Lovely setting, spotlessly clean. Good bar and restaurant staff, friendly and efficient. Food this time was brilliant. Smoked salmon and prawn starter followed by the tenderest roast beef had for some time. Good helpings and almost too many vegetables, well cooked and presented. Just like home.Good sweet and coffee. Best ever... More

This is one of the best cricket grounds in the country. Carefully developed to maintain an atmosphere and the views of the church spires in the town. The staff are local, warm and friendly. The food variety at matches is excellent and varies from three course lunches to pasties and hog roasts. Drinks are fairly priced. The supporters are vocal... More

Well I couldn't miss this match, final game of the season (2016) and a chance of winning the championship. The ground has seen loads of changes since I first came to watch cricket here in the 1960's it still had a dog track at that point. Its a nice place to watch cricket with all the facilities toilets/food out lets... More

Hi, Thanks very much for writing this review and we are glad you enjoyed our match with Nottinghamshire! We certainly take your point on the online ticketing system, we recently changed ticking providers and we are still ironing out a few things to make the experience better and more user-friendly. Looking forward to seeing you in 2017 Many Thanks More

The cricket ground is very green and has plenty of seats to sit watch and enjoy the cricket. There is a nice coffee shop and gift shop nearby.

This has to be one of the most delightful places to watch county cricket in the country. Plenty of seating for the occasional visitor. Lots of choice for food and drink on match days. A very welcoming atmosphere for visiting supporters who all seem to enjoy their visits more than other grounds.
