we were at the Exeter gold cup day. The hospitality shown by all the staff was first class, the whole day was a pleasure for us made by the attitude of all the people who work at the course. It makes a change in this day and age for people to take the time to be pleasant and very professional... More

Went here for a birthday celebration. We went for the Desert Orchid restaurant package so had the table for the afternoon. Good food, friendly service, great view of the finishing line and close to the betting ring and parade ring. It was busy in the restaurant which created a nice buzz. A lovely experience.

I would recommend the Haldon Premier area or the restaurant (pre-booking required). They are more expensive but are, in my opionion, they are well worth it.... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal in the Desert Orchid resturant, which provided panoramic views of the beautiful racecourse from a dry warm site for the afternoon. Lift is... More

I was on holiday in Exeter and pleased to see that there was a special Valentines Day race day. This place has all you need for a good day out at the races, undercover stands, large screen, bookies, bars and restaurants....

If you enjoy the sport of Kings then this is the place for you. Not as big as some courses but still provides the opportunity to place your bet.
