Brentford – Griffin Park

Jump to: HotelsPubsParkingDirectionsFan’s comments

griffin park brentfordGriffin Park has a capacity of 12,763 and has been the home of Brentford FC since 1904.

The ground gets its name from the Griffin in the logo of Fuller’s Brewery, which owned the land on which the stadium was built. The compact ground comprises 4 stands.

The home fans are allocated the Braemar Road stand (the main stand) an all-seated single tier stand, the Bill Axbey Stand (formerly the New Road stand), a single tier seated stand and the Ealing Road end, a covered terrace. The Ealing Road Terrace was formerly open to the elements and therefore housed the away fans. A roof was added in 2007 and now houses home fans only.

Away fans are now housed in the Brook Road Stand, a double tiered stand, comprising terracing at the lower level and seating in the upper section. This stand, which was opened in 1986, is known affectionately by Brentford fans as the “Wendy House.”

    Its a good traditional ground with great atmosphere from the home fans, cracking banter between the home and away boys. Easy to get away from as all exits are opened up, and a few of the pubs are friendly which is decent. A bit of trouble after the match but a good police presence to stop anything major occuring. Parking is decent as there are various council estates to park on. Stewards are very good and control the fans well. The food is pretty decent aswell

    I came to griffin park this season knowing it could have been argyles last ever game before relegation. Because of this the away support was just fantastic with 1500 argyle fans making the trip to london
    the ground is a nice old traditional one, the terrace under in the away end creates a good atmosphere and I am not sure about the steep seating.
    The only negative was the simply poor home fans, not a peep out of them even though they won 2 0, apart from some little 10 year old trying to get as close to the away end as possible
    decent enough

    Good traditional ground with the terrace away end brilliant for creating alot of noise which we certainley did! downside side was the diobolically poor home fans who didn’t sing at all despite their 2-0 win! definately love to visit this ground again in the future!

    Without doubt my favourite away venue. OK the ground is not the best but the friendliness of the locals and the quality, and also the quantity, of the local drinking establishments more than make up for it. The only down side is that these days it is no longer possible, as a visiting supporter, to do “The Brentford four” as one of the 4 pubs at each corner of the ground is now, sadly, home fans only

    Old ground, facilities not great inside but with all of the refreshment options outside the ground there is no need to go in too early before kick off.
    In the top tier seating it is a great view of the pitch, Not much atmosphere generated.
    Street parking easy enough too.

    Cap Parking Facilaties where poor. Couldnt find a car park so had to park on the street. Inside the ground I was sitting on the upper tier. Had very good views with no obstructions. At half time I went to to get some food and it is very expensive. Was like £2.50 for a bottle of coca cola. The fans sung a bit. didnt sing throughout the game though and at full time hurled abuse at there fans becasue they lost. Overall Good day out. Fans were terrible though in my opinon.

    Good traditional ground, fans also. A pub on each corner- good selection of ales from all. New Inn lots of irish, Princes Royal Fullers as is Griffin and tend to have only home fans. Last pub, Royal oak, prob the best as easy going with both sets of fans, real ale and a friendly lively atmosphere
