Trevor Brennan’s new place is great fun, and food is good too. Lots of rugby chat and banter, and get a lot of the ex players in and out. Even if you don’t go before the game it is a must during the weekend.
His old place was good fun but this much better. Just book taxis or else it is a hell of a walk (found out!!)

There are some good places to eat and most like rugby and will chat away....and if like your steak L'Entrecôte is great!

We went to a lovely restaurant called Le Mae if memory is correct. Recommended to our freinds by Stuart Barnes!
It's not a rugby place though

Where is good to go pre game on the Sunday for some afternoon beers? Would be good to get a good group of Bath fans together!

I have never been to Toulouse but the Stadium brasserie is normally decent (Well it was Toulon). Close to the ground and plenty of atmosphere.

And I thought getting a wooden fork with your pie was the height of sophistication. Brasseries at rugby gounds, whatever next !

Wait for the new Rec development BG. Vegan popups, sushi and....shivers...’bowl food’ aplenty no doubt.

Toulouse Away
13 January, 2019 18:12
Let’s move on from the win and take that into the next game in Toulouse. I’m hoping we can build on the game and score some nice try’s in the process. Who’s getting behind the boys and making the trip out to Toulouse? Anyone got any tips for bars and restaurants on the Sunday?

Yer we were planning. To head at 2 and be at the ground about an hour before kick off? Unless people recon it’s better to get their earlier?

Are you planning to walk (stagger) to the ground - it looks as though it’s a couple of miles from the Rosbif!

We were planning on getting the metro up to “Barriere de Paris” which looks to be a short ride?

We are planning on going to Colomiers to watch Ex Bath boys Jonny F and possibly Kane on Friday night (dependant on alcohol consumption and how much effort it takes to leave the pub we have settled in).
Saturday its off to Trevor Brennan’s for the afternoon / evening, watching the rugby on tv.
Sunday, think it will be more a case of waking up on time and making our way straight to the ground after two days solid drinking!

Me and three of my school mates heading over on Saturday from Stanstead. Looking forward to the trip immensely. I’m sure the game will be rubbish, but the weekend will be Class.

Have been reading a bit about the Yellow Jacket protests. Seems there has been a bit of tear gas and riot police in the past weekends.

Remember, keep moving and soak a scarf in water before going out!

For those who may be thinking of meeting up at Trevor Brennan's Bar (De Danu I think it's called) I believe Trevor left Toulouse a few years back (maybe to join his son when he signed for Montpellier?)

Also, using my schoolboy french, I believe De Danu is closed until early February which is a shame because they have a good range of beers and good food.

Plenty of other good bars around the Capitole though.

See you in Toulouse!

Trevor is still very much in Toulouse. He lives in Castelginest which is about 5 miles from the ground. His new bar is here and is a brilliant place to visit, bigger and better version of De Danu.

Thanks Awp- I assumed you would be in the centre of the town hence I recal his bar near the Capitole. Apologies for the confusion.
Sounds like a fun place to be so we might meet there. If so, I will buy you a beer.
Is there a Metro stop anywhere near his bar? If so, what station?

No, but taxis are cheap, and they will order you one to get back if you ask them. If not Uber works everywhere!

Last time they ran shuttle buses from one of the Metro stations.

Yep, you are correct Stuart. On match day there is a free shuttle bus from the Metro Station Barriere de Paris on Metro Ligne B that takes you to just outside the ground.

Great craic with you lads and the Quins fans all weekend. Those in the Melting Pot and Meet for Meat..especially Matt B's mum and dad who kept both the Glaws and Bath fans happy. Stookie admitted there were more Gloucester fans at the Toulouse game than Bath fans (you can take the boy out of Gloucester...but) ...and fair play we were cheering you on despite the poor show from Mssrs Lacey and Clancy...(had to have a good shower the next morning to wash off all the love for Bath that seemed to envelope me on Sunday)....catch you all in a couple of weeks at the wreck.

Stookie (born in Worcester) was wrong on that one - lots of Bath fans there. Did see a few Glos mind you. I had breakfast next to Lacey who was in our hotel - that chap swears like a sailor even over his breakfast.

Interesting to see that some of the match features introduced at the Rec over the past few years are pretty much identical in Toulouse.

Also our proposed new Stadium passes a passing resemblance to their stadium! Mind you one might say well of course it does put 18 - 19,000 seats around a rugby pitch you are going to end up with something similar.

Now we just need fans as passionate (and noisy!) as they were - can't see it happening any time soon.

The atmosphere at the ground really was amazing and like them or not the ooom-pah band really cranked things up.

When the Bath players arrived a large crowd had gathered and the Toulouse supporters were hugely enthusiastic and generous in their applause.

I thought that seats in the ground were very narrow though and as the drain holes were full of moss they held about half an inch of rainwater!

Great weekend, thanks for the tip offs for Carcassonne and the shuttle bus!
