Enjoyed a warm and friendly welcome to Merthyr Town last weekend. Proper non-league ground and fans. Would avoid parking at the ground as this is limited. Parked in town for £1 all day. The Merthyr cob is a must!
A group of us had the box to watch the football, the buffet was absolutely brilliant, and the drinks fridge was excellent. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we'll definitely be going back next season.
We went for our 1st magic bag ever & it was last Sunday, and surprisingly, there were 2 x large Sunday lunches in a box with a carton of gravy for 2 & we will definitely getting another one we'll please very yummy
A housing estate next to it also carries the name of the stadium. It was also the home of the town's former club, Merthyr Tydfil F.C. There are plans for Merthyr to move to a new stadium on the edge of the town. The stadium would be part of the new 'Merthyr Village' development and have a capacity of around 12,000. These plans were thrown into doubt by the Welsh Government's rejection of the project in 2007. In July 2011, the newly promoted Merthyr Town FC hosted Welsh Premier League side Llanelli in a pre-season friendly at Penydarren Park, and thereafter took up full-time residency.
