Where to eat: There are food stands and shops on each side of City Ground and there is a McDonald’s restaurant outside the away end.
Where to drink: There are a host of pubs around the City Ground but away supporters are told to stay away from the Larwood and Voce and also the Trent Bridge Inn, which are both around Notts County Cricket Club’s ground. The unofficial away supporters pub is the Meadow Club which can be reached by crossing the Trent Bridge and then turning right on to Meadow Lane and the pub is on your right.
