New outdoor café bar launched, and club shop to reopen doors with mega clearance sale…

Next week will see the opening of a new outdoor hospitality setting at the Riverside Stadium, the Bridge Café Bar, while the club shop will reopen its doors to shoppers with a mega clearance sale.

The next stage of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown is set to come into operation on Monday April 12, and while we await the return of matchday fans to the stadium, we’re delighted to be able to welcome you back to the Riverside at both our official retail store and new eatery.

The Bridge Café Bar offers the perfect place to catch up with family, grab a bite to eat with colleagues on your lunch break or enjoy a few drinks with friends, while it’s well worth a visit to the club shop to take advantage of a huge range of in-store discounts.

The Riverside is a COVID-secure venue and has been awarded ‘Good To Go’ status by the UK’s National Tourist Organisation.

The Bridge Café Bar

This new, purpose-built outdoor venue is situated directly in front of the Riverside on the site of our popular matchday FanZone.

Tables of up to six guests can order from a pub-style menu, including burgers, parmos, nachos and more, as well as hot and cold drinks and a full range of beers and lagers.

The Bridge Café Bar will open for the first time at 9am on Monday April 12, with bacon sandwiches on sale. Usual opening hours will then be from 12 noon until 8pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (excluding home matchdays), but may vary subject to demand and weather conditions.

To request a booking, please email events@mfc.co.uk or use the booking form available in our events section. All attending guests will be required to provide contact information.

Table service will be in operation, with guests required to wear face masks only when moving from their seats.

The club shop is set to reopen its doors on Monday with a mega clearance sale, available in-store only.
