Great Sunday afternoon session with excellent rock band (Highway Jones) performing high-quality cover songs. Great drinks prices, packed house, friendly staff and great crowd.
All-in-all, a really enjoyable afternoon/early evening. A must go to in the future.
You'll be doing well to find an even worse ground to go and watch football from than what is on offer at Meadowbank. At £18 for a Scottish League 1 game unless you support the sides involved there is little incentive to come here and if you are a supporter of the away team you really should give it some thought first.
If you are "lucky" and get a seat in the stand you will at the very least have a roof over your head albeit that probably isn't going to keep you dry in the event that should it rain the wind is blowing south. You also won't have any obstructions to your view although with an eight lane running track between stand and pitch and the stand itself only three rows deep it probably won't be a great view.
Away supports of over 200 are likely to be given tickets for standing and it's here that things really go south. No cover whatsoever with spectators standing on grass, most of whom will have some sort of restricted view. If you stand on the halfway line the dugouts will block the view of both goals. This means most spectators here will congregate towards the penalty area at either end of the pitch.
No banking or elevation on the grass to help you view so if you aren't there early to pick a spot you'll be having to look over people.
Standing behind the goals will at least mean dugouts aren't blocking some of the view but you are very far away from the pitch.
Catering is a burger van and the burger I had from it was really good so I can recommend.
Toilet facilities consist of portaloos.
Staff at turnstiles and selling programmes were very friendly and the match day programme itself is amongst the best you'll find in the leagues.
Unfortunately for FC Edinburgh that have come back home to a ground that isn't fit for purpose and it'll be a struggle to grow their crowds from their current base. There only appeared to be a couple hundred at the FC Edinburgh v Falkirk match which has to be disappointment given the fact the club is playing at its highest ever level.
I cannot see this improving at Meadowbank in its current guise and serious consideration should be given to finding an alternative home within Edinburgh.
Overall unless you can't go a week without seeing your team in action then give this place a miss.
Constantly playing music that can be heard loudly on the other side of the park. This disrupts the lives of all the people living around it. Not to mention the amount of trouble this place attracts, can't tell you how many times I've woken up to find the police with the street cordoned off.
Why it has not been shut down I don't know.
