Your guide to the Rec - Harlequins

9 January 2020

Heineken Champions Cup action returns on Friday, as Bath Rugby face Harlequins (kick-off 19:45). Here's a guide of what's going on at the Rec. 


Having been phased in at the end of the 2018/19 season, all Bath Rugby bars and concession stands on the outfield will no longer accept cash payments.

The move to cash-free is designed to speed up transactions and reduce queuing times to ensure that supporters have less time away from the game.

The Rec will be able to process all major contactless debit and credit card, with chip and pin applying to all purchases over £30. Bars and food outlets will also accept Google Pay and Apple Pay. Make your experience even quicker by downloading the Tap and Go app available to download on Apple and Android. Search “Tap and Go at Bath Rugby”.


There are a number of food vendors available at the Rec, including Mac & Cheese, The Best Brownie Company and Fish and Chips. There is a new vegan stand ‘Have a pinch,’ so make sure you take advantage of the many options available to you ahead of kick-off.

Reusable bottles 

Bath Rugby is working towards being singleuse plastic free on a matchday. As part of this commitment, bars and concessions will no longer be selling plastic bottles. There are refill stations located in the four corners of the ground to refill your bottes at the Rec. Bath Rugby branded reusable bottles will be sold at every bar at the Rec for £5.
