I was wondering if there is any new initiatives for next season?

We have some really great local produce and it seems really strange we don't offer anything other than a basic bought in pukka pie, turgid hot dog or a nasty burger.

Why are we not pushing the local Docks Beers to? fantastic new local enterprise who we could be publicly supporting and serving their delicious beer on site!

Youngs? sponsoring  the shirt with that hideous logo, but not supplying food in the town that is the so called home of fish and chips -bizarre!

Also I have noticed there don't seem to be any puddings? Why can't I get a decent crumble and custard? What about a nice chocolate brownie and ice cream?

That little Penny sweet shop (oh the memories I have there) near the ground could do with some more business, why don't they set up a little stall inside the grounds?

And where are we at with the shift worker tickets ? we tried with the trust for this donkey years ago - still nothing ?

I want a decent fan experience and when JSF reads this hope he takes the suggestions on board !

I don’t know about puddings in the ground but there’s a fruit loop on this board.

The OP has a valid point ... the food in BP  Is abysmal. ... there are plenty of fish and chip vans in the area it wouldn't take much effort too get one in . Also a nice fish finger sandwich would be good

All this stuff takes a tiny bit of ambition, imagination and initiative......... forget all of that and let’s get back to the important stuff like a “football fortune”, mythical new community stadium and getting to the Championship under Michael Jolley😉

Yeah, many a time during a sub-zero Tuesday night game in mid-January with the score at 0-2 have I said the person sat next to me "You know what this ground needs to improve the 'fan experience'?".... "Ice-cream, flipping ice-cream".

Don't understand why we can't get Turner's and other local food service businesses involved.  Possibly with themed events/cuisines provided throughout the season. The catering at the ground is shocking with no imagination or flair. Even McMenemy's is out dated with the food and service being of a poor standard. Looking at the way the club is run and its lack of vision, it is no wonder.

Kidderminster are the only club I've known to do 'decent' (or should that read edible) match day food.

The issue is, that theres potential for big losses when it comes to this type of catering. Limited time frame, resaleable/perishable goods and wastage will all contribute to quality of food.

I agree that the quality could be better, but given the facilities available, it's probably asking a lot too

There are many things wrong with the general catering at BP.  But not in Mcmenemys.

I normally get a couple of corporate visits a season. Each time the food and service has been superb. A decent range of starters and deserts with fish and chips or carvery for the main.

You have to remember it’s a restaurant at a fourth tier football club.

For me, the club should be at the forefront of promoting the Town and pushing community regeneration. Given what the town is known for, it has baffled me for years why we continue to overlook the opportunity to provide something unique, local and symbolic in terms of food etc. that fans could enjoy and talk about - might even contribute to bringing more into BP. More generally, we should be working with the various tourist boards and attractions in the area to promote the town and county as a whole as a place worth coming too. Just an opinion.
