Where to eat and drink.
There’s a bar inside the Bisley Stand and a burger van just inside Gate 6 – where the Grimsby Town fans will be able to purchase drinks and food.
A little further away is the Excelsior Club (Corporation Road) which also allows in away fans, and Wetherspoon’s pub on Chepstow Road (Godfrey Morgan) is around a 10 minute walk from Rodney Parade.
How to get there.
Leave the M4 at Junction 24 (or from the A449 from Monmouth/Midlands) and take the B4237, signposted Newport (E). After approximately 2.5 five miles turn left at a set of traffic lights, signposted B4237 (there is also the George pub on a right hand corner). Go under a bridge and at the next set of traffic lights turn right into Corporation Road. After passing an ATS garage on your right, you will see the away supporters entrance on your left. For the stadium main entrance take the next left into Grafton Road.
Newport Railway Station is situated around a quarter of a mile away from the stadium and is a relatively short walk. The station is served by trains from London Paddington, Bristol Temple Meads & Birmingham New Street.
There is no parking available at the ground for supporters and there is a ‘residents only’ parking scheme in operation in the street around the stadium. However, some street parking is possible but please pay attention to any parking restriction signs. Alternatively you can use one of the city centre car parks which are around a 15 minute walk away.
