“Great stadium”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Great stadium - good view from pretty much every seat, close to town and train station. Food was not great, wine was nice though. Worst thing was that our rugby team lost to Wellington on the day :)

“Best when it's full”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The stadium has long been one of Wellington's best assets. The venue is great, close to the city, easy to get tickets too (usually). When it's full (or even half full) it goes off. Look for rugby, football, rugby sevens, and apparently AFL is coming too.

Dislike the food/beverage service there, but they are looking to fix that up. Currently expensive and poor quality. They have a small stadium bar which has tap beer, but best go there nice and early as the queues are large during interval!

“Great venue stink food”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Fantastic view of every game. Every seat is worth the fee and you always get to see well. Great atmosphere too - it is small enough so the crowd usually feels at one. But the food and drink is terrible. My god it is awful. Soggy corn dogs and chips. Yuk beer. Cheap wine. What a shame!

“The Game they play in Heaven”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

If rugby is that game, this must be heaven right? The Cake Tin is a great place to watch rugby. But make sure a good team is playing.

“Cake tin fabulous fun”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Easy to get to stadium, walk from centre of city or excellent public transport - if taking the train into the stadium you get a discount on the return trip if you have tickets for the game. Good views from all seats beware of Wellington's wonderful wet weather and dress warmly. Food and drink are typical stadium rubbish, overpriced and barely warm - eat and drink before you go or afterwards.
