COPTHALL : EATING - DRINKING - PARKING for Saracens Fans

A GUIDE TO SARACENS ( BARNET FC ) AT COPTHALL STADIUM
NOTE UPDATE :This was our guide when the stadium was announced. We are preparing a comprehensive guide for fans with detailed information which is due before the April 9th 2016 15,000 capacity game to celebrate this increase in capacity for the Allianz Arena. We will link from this page if you want to bookmark it.

Just some ideas of the businesses which would attract fans of the rugby club Saracens if they based themselves at Copthall next season.

RIDGEWAY PUBS
Adam and Eve : this new gastropub would surely be packed out every game - and booked heavily for post match meals. Loads of great real ales and quality food which is properly sourced and a reasonable price.
The Hammers : though part of the Ember Inns portfolio this pub has plenty of room and is very comfortable. The food is cheap and cheery pub/restaurant fare and is cheaper than the Harvester chain. Loads of real ales as well.

Further afield there are bars on The Broadway - The Rising Sun on Totteridge Lane and the Orange Tree in Totteridge Village. There is also a pub on the roundabout at Mill Hill East and a couple near the Ridgeway. We will publish a full pub guide for Copthall Stadium just before the season starts.

SHOPPING CENTRES AND EATING
Mill Hill East : Waitrose : Bound to be a favourite stop off for some shopping.
Organic Butchers on Roundabout : Again these quality food shops on the roundabout at Mill Hill East will provide an attractive shopping destination.
THE BROADWAY : Obviously the British Rail Station is at Mill Hill Broadway and the local Bus Terminal. The road has some of the best eating and drinking in North West London - so would be an ideal place after a match or for lunch or even breakfast before the game. Good quality clothes shops means that fans can drop off spouses and children for some retail therapy and cafe culture and pick them up on the way back through.
CHIP SHOPS : The area has few but there is one just off PURSLEY ROAD on Salcombe Gardens next to the Copthall Site which is bound to do good business on match days. Hopefully they will open for Sunday games.

PARKING AND ACCESS :
Copthall has its own car park. However, Saracens are likely to do deals with the Primary Schools and Copthall Secondary and the other schools which surround the Copthall Site for car parking deals. This should bring in some much needed income to the local schools and make parking for games very easy.
Alternatives are to park in the Mill Hill Broadway station car parks and then get the bus to the stadium.
Buses go along the A41 leaving fans with a short walk into the Copthall site. The nearest tube is Mill Hill East which still leaves fans with a bus ride to the site.
