John Smith’s Stadium launches new café bar

One of Yorkshire’s top sports grounds recently unveiled a new facility, which looks set to score with fans, local residents and businesses.

John Smith’s Stadium - home to Huddersfield Town Football Club and Huddersfield Giants Rugby League Club – has opened a new café bar within its health and fitness club.

And, along with providing match day food and drink, the HD1 Café-Bar will be open throughout the week for friends or business colleagues looking to enjoy home cooked meals, cakes and hot and cold drinks.

The stylish, contemporary venue is also available to hire for exclusive use on evenings and non-match day weekends for smaller, social or corporate functions and parties as part of the stadium complex development.

Sales and marketing manager, Fenny Greenfield, said: “We are delighted with the HD1 Café-Bar, which is going to be a great asset, not just to the stadium, but to the town. It’s beautifully designed and offers a wide choice of light meals, sandwiches and drinks – all made on-site by our chefs. It is also very versatile, so, as well as being a great venue for fans, both prior to and following matches, it is a great place for a mid-week catch-up with friends, or in which to host a business breakfast meeting or brainstorm.”

The John Smith's Stadium is widely recognised as Huddersfield’s premier conference venue featuring a wide range of function rooms suitable for both corporate and private hire.  From intimate meeting rooms, to spacious multi-function conference and banqueting facilities the John Smith's Stadium can deliver the ideal space and catering for events of any size.

HD1 Café-Bar is open on weekdays between 7.30 am and 4pm and on match days.

Bateaux London earns top award

Visitors have pushed the boat out in praise of a popular London attraction – and earned it a top award.

Thames river cruise company Bateaux London, at Embankment Pier, Victoria Embankment, has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2015 after receiving consistently outstanding reviews from customers.

The company runs a range of cruises on its two vessels; Harmony and Symphony and was given the award after 551 travellers rated their experience as ‘excellent’ on TripAdvisor. It is now also ranked 90th of 1,269 ‘things to do’ in London.

Throughout the year, Harmony – which has the largest open viewing deck on the Thames - and glass-sided Symphony, treat leisure and corporate guests to lunch, dinner and afternoon tea cruises, with on board catering from Bateaux London’s team of chefs.

And, on Sundays, those on-board can enjoy lunch along with live entertainment from an easy-listening jazz band.

The various cruises provide a range of entertainment, from on-board sightseeing commentaries to live music and the chance to enjoy unrivalled views of sights such as The Cutty Sark, the New Globe Theatre, The Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Among the comments posted by satisfied customers were, “because of all the things to do in London I don't generally repeat things but enjoyed this so much I can’t wait might try the Afternoon Tea next time or would love to book the New Year’s Eve dinner.”

Another visitor said: “The food was really good, the staff were great from the minute you walk through the reception and the actual trip is a really, really good experience.”

While Michie, from London, wrote: “The seating was extremely comfortable, the pianist played some well-known tunes as we cruised around the Thames and it was a really pleasant way to spend our Saturday afternoon.”

The floating venues also provide stunning back drops for a wide range of corporate events including private dining.
