We chose to walk from Dorking main station which is one of three stations that serve the town. If you have time to kill before a game, head for the town ctre as there are many options for food & drink. The ground is well sign posted from the main street and it's a 5 minute walk. Meadowbank is a super modern stadium and one of the best in level 5 ( I have 2 left to visit). The bar/function room is brand new and has a view of the pitch. Food and drink is also served from a hatch underneath the bar. There is ample seating which is all undercover. When you exit the ground, the main station is accessible via a well managed path, which runs along the side of a pond , and negates the need to walk through the town ctre.

Great little club (little at the moment), I have been following this club for 2 years on YouTube and decided that we had to go and see a game (we live in Canada). What a fantastic afternoon's entertainment. The people here are friendly and welcoming, a great family atmosphere (most of the 90). Very nice setting by the river, the little town is nice too. All the best DWFC!

My local National League team that is worth visiting. They are a great example of a team at that standard trying to create a great match day experience. Food and drink outlets, stands and generally a good view of the game unless its very well attended when it can be difficult to find a spot with a goid view of the pitch. Lacking enough toilet facilities and parking can be difficult on busier match days.

History (from Wikipedia)

The club initially played at Big Field Brockham, before moving to the Westhumble Playing Fields on London Road in 2007.[3] The ground had a small seated stand and covered standing on one side of the pitch, with the remainder being uncovered;[10] Floodlights were installed in 2012. In July 2018 the club relocated to a refurbished Meadowbank ground,[11] which had previously been home to Dorking F.C. prior to their disbanding.[12] Their first game at Meadowbank was a friendly match against Sutton United on 17 July 2018.[11]

Meadowbank had become the home ground of Dorking F.C. in 1953.
[11] A 200-seat stand was built on one side of the pitch around 1956,[11] with a covered standing area built on the other. Another covered standing area was installed behind one goal, with the other end left open.[13] However, they were forced to leave the ground in 2013 after it was shut down for failing to meet health and safety requirements.[11] Prior to Dorking Wanderers moving to the ground, it was upgraded to include a 300-seat stand, two covered standing areas and an 3G pitch as it was converted to a community sports facility at a cost of £5m.[11] The Surrey County Football Association also moved their headquarters to Meadowbank when it reopened.[11]

In February 2020 the club announced that planning permission had been granted to upgrade Meadowbank Stadium to a Grade B status. In July 2020, the stadium passed the Grade B status assessment. By September 2020 work had been completed on a new seated stand and a new covered terrace both at the east end of the ground, taking Meadowbank's official capacity to 3,000
