How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
Nice easy drive to Bristol from the north west

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
Loads of street parking up near Horfield Church, about 5 minutes walk away. Traffic seems to be gridlock in every direction getting away though.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I was in the DAS Terrace, which has good views all along.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problems

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Never ate

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Very good to be fair.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
I was a pub called the Wellington near the ground, though they only let in home fans

Overall Score Out of 10?
A real mish mash of a ground. I like it though, if they could just replace that temporary 'tent' end, it would be a solid lower league ground.
7/10

By train change at Temple Meads for Montpelier, and then about a 25 minute walk. A number of bus routes pass close to the ground.

N/A

On the terrace I the corner, mostly good views.

No problems

A kiosk in the away end which was OK, though I think the pasties were about as Cornish as I am

The atmosphere was OK, but I think we killed it a bit with the 2nd goal right on half time (Jan 2013)

I went in a couple of pubs close to Montpelier railway station, and there are a fair few on the way to the ground as well

I like the Memorial. Yes it maybe a mish mash, but it has a terrace, which is always a plus

I quite like the Memorial although the away end is poor, being seated in a temporary stand. The rest of the ground exudes real character. I also liked the potato and cheese pasty I had!
