Our first time at the races, great atmosphere, and had Them Beatles performing in the tent but the cost of a drink/food was way over the top, definitely NOT enough seating areas, not taking into account the older generation. staff need to learn to smile though, but we still had a great day, the brilliant sunshine helped.

Fantastic day at the races, a little flutter on the horses & plenty excitement watching them race. A day for dressing up & feeling special with loads & loads of fun. The band playing later at night was fab too, a wee dance & drink to finish off a perfect day. Most definitely a day out to remember.

Had a brilliant day at the races on the first day of the Scottish grand national meeting at Ayr racecourse The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone was in good spirits. Not much on offer for kids at this event and the food was expensive so be aware

Scotland's top racecourse located in the old town of Ayr very well attended with plenty of food and beverage outlets well worth attending the Ladies day events and of course the Ayr Gold Cup as well as the Scottish Grand National

I have had the pleasure of once experiencing the hospitality at Ayr races and thoroughly enjoyed it, the quality of the food was first class. Unfortunately i have also experienced the ordinary fare they try to pass off as food to the "normal" punters/ customers on two occasions, each as bad as each other. A luke warm burger on a... More

This was the second time to Ayr Races as a guest for hospitality with a company. I have been to several of these events at various racetracks and to be honest this is a third of the price of places like Aintree and is far superior in comparison. The food was very good, all served on piping hot plates and... More

Atmosphere was brilliant. (Be prepared for some rather drunk arrogant people and the end of the day though. :(
