Socialising and shopping were back on the agenda at the Riverside on Monday when the stadium officially re-opened to the public.

The first pint was served at 9.15am at the new Bridge Cafe Bar and there was a healthy flow of people throughout the day, sampling the beers and food on offer from the new-look venue.

In addition, MFC Official opened its doors once again with an in-store Mega Sale and fans queued throughout the day to snap up the bargains on offer.

The Bridge Café Bar

This new, purpose-built outdoor venue is situated directly in front of the Riverside on the site of our popular matchday FanZone.

Tables of up to six guests can order from a pub-style menu, including burgers, parmos, nachos and more, as well as hot and cold drinks and a full range of beers and lagers.

Opening hours are from 12 noon until 8pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (excluding home matchdays), but may vary subject to demand and weather conditions.

To request a booking, please email or use the booking form available in our events section. All attending guests will be required to provide contact information.

Table service will be in operation, with guests required to wear face masks only when moving from their seats.
