|What's The New Bucks Head Stadium Like?|
|A comparatively new stadium
that replaced the Bucks Head ground on the same
site. It was built in stages beginning in 2000, with
the works being completed in 2003. It is an
attractive looking ground, with good facilities,
including a hotel which is attached to the stadium.
On one side of the ground sits proudly the Sir Stephen Roberts Stand, named after a former Director and lifelong supporter. This single tiered, all seated stand, has a capacity of 2,200. It is smart looking and has executive boxes to its rear. On one side of the stand is a stadium control box, whilst on the other side of the stand are some offices, which gives the ground an enclosed feeling on this side. Both ends are covered terraces that are of similar design, both having semi circular roofs. On the remaining side of the ground, is an open terrace, called the Jack Bentley Terrace (after the Club's all time record goal scorer), which is dominated behind by the Club offices and study centre. To one side of this open terrace towards the Frank Naginton Stand is a small electric scoreboard.
Away fans are mostly housed at one end of the ground in the Frank Naginton Stand. This covered terrace has space for 1,300 fans. If demand requires it then a block of seating in the Sir Stephen Roberts (West) Stand can also be allocated. The stadium is also used by Wolverhampton Wanderers for reserve team fixtures.

|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
fans are mostly housed at one end of the ground,
in the covered Frank Naginton Terrace, where up to
1,300 fans can be housed. The entrance to the away
area is at the top of the stand, so you descend
through the concourse at the back of the stand and
then onto the rear of the terrace. On the
concourse are separate areas for serving alcohol
and food. Bitter, Lager & Cider are available
and there are TV's around, showing SKY Sports. The
bar also handily opens again at half time. If
demand requires it then a block of seating in the
Sir Stephen Roberts (West) Stand can also be
Generally the atmosphere inside the stadium is good, with a relative few visiting fans being able to generate some noise from the covered away stand. Unusually the Club have taken the decision not allocate as a matter of course, a seating area for away fans so only the terrace is available. However, if fans request to be seated, as they are unable to stand throughout the game, then seating will be provided in the Main Stand.

|Where To Drink?|
a small bar located within the Study Centre
Facility behind the Jack Bentley Terrace, however
this does not admit away fans. There is the
Dugout bar, which also shows Sky Sports, which is
located in the Whitehouse Hotel which is adjacent
to the stadium. Otherwise the nearest pubs are the
Cock Hotel and the Swan Hotel, which are around a
five minute walk away from the stadium. Go around
behind the Main Stand and you will see the hotel
bar and then turn right along the main road and
both pubs are located opposite one another at
a crossroads. The Cock Hotel is a regular in the
CAMRA Good Beer Guide and has eight hand pumps,
one of which is normally given over to cider. The
Swan Hotel opposite also features a carvery.
Otherwise alcohol is served in the away end.
