we went here for one of the christmas parties. We were told to be there for 6:30 and by 7:00 we had our food, the only problem with this is that people were still arriving, so by the time we had finished our meal, other people had just started theirs. The staff didn't seem to know what was in certain... More

We attend the races to celebrate Michelles birthday. It's wonderful to see the horses and fashions on ladies day. The down side is the cost tickets to attend drinks and food are also expensive but it makes a change.

Fun days great, £25 family entrance, then £8 each for wrist bands to let the kids on teacups and bouncy castles. Drinks over-priced as expected.

Reaching the course is not the easiest if not driving, or wanting to get a taxi, but once there it is an enjoyable and well laid out racecourse. Straight forward to find all you need, and with some good racing to watch it is the usual racecourse pricing but this is to be expected. There are views beyond the course... More

The racing itself was abandonned after an hour long storm, which was unfortunate and unavoidable, however several other aspects of the visit were not exactly satisfactory. Soon after our arrival we were directed to one of three large marquees where... More

a really good day out for the family, kids under 16 get in free with a paying adult,can be a bit pricey if there is more than two adults. I think the price of the drinks could be brought down a bit to help people that like a couple of drinks on a day out £4.00 per pint of lager... More
