very full on our visit and the facilities were poor when so full, not enough seating and portacabin loos needed, drinks were very expensive but I think that is the norm for any event staged in the UK. a beautiful racecourse but more seating and better toilet facilities needed, if you are planning to go don't let my review put...

We booked tickets to Dee stand which were reasonable at thirteen quid each and didn't expect much, but we were pleased at the friendly atmosphere and although the queue for the bar took a while you could still see the screens, I have experienced much worse at other events! Plenty of people still had posh frocks and fascinators on while... More

I really enjoyed my time at the races however there was one idiotic member of staff that had the cheek to insult our group due to where we were from. This hasn't been reflected in my rating as I don't think it's fair to mark down on poor choice of staffing, I won't go into detail as an official complaint... More

Overall the day here was pretty good. We were in the tattersalls and found the experience to be a good one. The food when in there is expensive but of a good quality. I personally ate steak and ale pie and peas which was £7.00 which is pricey but like I said, it was of a good quality. My partner... More

Great day out. Worth dressing up for the County stand but other areas of the course are fine. The course is only about a mile long so you can watch the horses all the way around if in the stands

Booked a table at the turf restaurant for the day and had a good day at the races. The meals at the restaurant were very nice, the steak was lovely I must say. The only shame really is that you have to wander out to watch the racing unless you watch it on the tv's in the restaurant but I... More

Had to cancel my trip due to an accident, called the race track to cancel and they have no cancellation policy and would not issue any refund. Never again.

Spent the day in the Final Furlong on a VIP package. This included a meal and unlimited drinks! At the outset it seems expensive but when you add up what you would have spent on food and drinks it isn't dear as it seems. Great day at the races.
