Just past the stadium, Le Valy (No.148bis) is also part restaurant, part bar, the dining room separated off from the bar area if you’re just after a stand-up pre-match swiftie.

At the stadium itself, behind Tribune Super U, still on the main road, the Léon le Cochon is one of the finest of its kind, an expansive restaurant, tastefully decorated with framed photos showing key moments in the history of Stade Rennais. 

A sunken area inside has a TV for sports. It opens weekday lunchtimes, when it does a daily menu, and for match nights, when you should reserve (+33 2 99 14 43 76).
