We came on the big race night 6th June when there is also an Ale Festival and band on. We felt that the additional cost didn't really reflect the benefit. Band was ok but not fab. Drinks at £6 for wine and £4-5 for beers were dear I felt and choices limited despite the Ale festival. The hog roast food... More

Second visit to this lovely little course. Once again we had a hospitality package in the restaurant. Food was lovely and the service extremely friendly. The whole course is, to say the least, getting on a bit. The ladies toilets are a little piece of history! It is all the more charming for it. Great racing at a lovely little... More

Bath is always a great day out and most meetings are well attended so give yourself plenty of time if your going by car as the traffic sometimes backs up for miles. There is ample parking on Landsdown, and you can even take your car on to the part of the course that's opposite the stands. There's the Blaithwaite Arms... More

Racing at Bath is always a good day out for the family. Especially within the course itself. Safe for the children with all the amenities avaiable that parents want for the children, and plenty of space for them to run around. Love it!
