We have been coming to the mid August meeting for many years. Last year was not so good and I made a point of raising my concerns with the managers of both the Course and Security. They gave excellent feedback to my complaint and I felt that I was taken seriously. We were given some complimentary wickets which we used... More

We went for a family day out for a special birthday. Ripon racecourse is definitely not wheelchair friendly!!! Nowhere with any height that you could go, have a drink and watch the action. There was one "special" wheelchair place and you certainly were not allowed a drink there. We were asked to move on from one bar as we were... More

Lovely setting. Food and alcohol very reasonably priced...particularly the champagne! Very close to centre of Ripon so could easily walk if staying in the centre of Ripon.

A beautiful racecourse set in parkland. The racecourse is compact with plenty of opportunity to explore a range of vantage points of the flat racing. Excellent, clean facilities although drinks were pricey. Well worth paying for a club ticket.

Really enjoyed our afternoon here. On arrival we were able to eat in the restaurant in the stand. We hadn't booked, the food was good, the staff were efficient and the meal was great value too. Good viewing from the stand on a wet afternoon, easy to see the paddock, very well laid out course. My biggest gripe of the... More

Decided to go to ripon races and because the weather wasn't forecast to be very good paid extra and purchased the gold hospitality package. To be honest I don't feel it offered good value for money. Don't get me wrong it wasn't bad either but I felt that for that much money you could have been treated a bit better...... More
