Can you take hot food into Moss Lane?
« on: March 05, 2022, 10:47:48 PM »

I might be wrong but I thought I saw stewards turning away some fans who were bringing  in hot food to the ground  at the last home game. Is this a thing?  I hope I was mistaken as it was never an issue

You havenít been able to for a while. Usually get told to eat your chippy before entering.

Club need as much turnover from food etc as possible, so seems a sensible ban to me. Food is cheap at ML compared to Maidenhead yesterday. £4.50 for a burger etc. That said they had plenty of venues doing snacks and were doing good trade.

There's been signs up at the turnstiles all season saying you can't take food in to the ground.

TBH the chips in the clubhouse are Ok but not a patch on the chips over the road! Up until a year or two ago we could bring them in but not now (unless you sneak em in) ha, SBL

You can easily smuggle them in. Pop them in your mouth one at a time, bit of a chew and swallow.

Sssshhhhhh. Don't tell the stewards and there you go.

Then food strategy needs to improve. We're serving limp, under cooked, in seasoned fries.

Stockport food offering is night and day. Choose better ingredients, people won't feel the need to bring in outside food.

Don't disagree we should review the food offering, but cost wise is competitive. Thought food I got from Stockport was awful and expensive. Microwave burger for £7.50 with runny cheese that disintegrated into an awful liquid. Maidenheads burger was awful also for £4.50. Kings Lynn was dire as well and a bottle of pop £2.50!! in fact they charged the same for still water! So were in my opinion better than many.

That said once the Fan Zone opens that should give more variety one hopes.

I'd be very surprised if "The Good Catch - Award winning fish and chip shop" didnt have better chips than a football club!

Ask them to rebrand to the robins retreat and go into partnership with them at the ground on match days 😆

Maybe have a zip wire where trays of hot fish and chips can be conveyed into the football ground.

This is disappointing news, I quite often brought mine in from over the road.

Can't think of any football ground that allows you to bring your own refreshments. You can take your own food and drink on a plane but even then you have to buy it at the airport. Alty have been losing much needed income allowing people in with food in the past. Would you expect to take fish and chips into any restaurant or cafe in Altrincham and sit at their tables eating it?
