    Great ground to watch cricket from. The pavilion is superb, four levels open to all members. Puts other venues to shame.

    Cricket, what else? OCS stands (entry thru the Alec Stewart gates) are the nicest.

    Great vibe, easy to get too. The beers were £4.60 a pop though and only took cash at mobile/portable vendors. Come prepared!! Security is strict on the people having too much fun.

    Queue up before change over and get plenty beers to avoid queuing. But you can bring in as much food as you like.
