Even the rain couldn't alter this unforgettable experience! What a fantastic atmosphere, what an adrenaline rush during the bet. It does'nt matter whether you know anything about horse races or not ; you will anyhow like it. So don't miss the experience and the warm welcome. Enjoy... Christelle (France)

It was my first time at The Crown Lodge and it felt like I have been there for years. It really felt like home! The hospitality was just amazing. Thank you Mr Ritter for his great sense of hospitality and the excellent food we had. This is sure an unforgettable experience that one should experience.

We spent the day at the Crown Lodge on the last day of our honeymoon. What fun! Excellent views of the races, brilliant atmosphere, access to the paddocks, yummy food and drinks on tap. Everyone was so friendly. We had a great day out.
