We had a brilliant night at the Greyhound racing. Our little girl absolutely loved the excitement of the racing. We had an excellent 3 course meal in the suite above the track which had perfect views. The service was great, and special thanks to 'Maximillion' our waiter, he was a star, couldn't have asked for anyone better to look after... More

Had booked this in February and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful day the venue was superb. Empress suite was worthwhile booking. Food done to a very good standard. Great view of greyhound racing from private balcony. Staff were professional and very friendly. Our waiter Max was fantastic as well as all the other staff. Will definitely visit again.

My wife and I hired suite on the 12th July to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary inviting 40 guests. It was a great afternoon, the facilities were good, the food excellent and the staff very attentive. Considering what we got as a package (suite, dinner, afternoon tea) it was very reasonably priced. We had a few guests with special dietary... More

We regularly go to Peterborough dogs which I enjoy, but tried Towcester for a change, immediate impression is the beautiful grounds it's lovely to be outside on a summer evening here even with young children, they do a children's race and the little ones can go and be photographed with the winning dog which was a nice touch as I...

Took the rare, childless, opportunity for myself and my wife to experience a Friday night at the Greyhound racing, that has fairly recently become established at Towcester. Rather than just turning up we decided to opt for the VIP experience in the Empress Suite, 3 course dinner, private bar and viewing balcony. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Excellent service from our... More

Went on a spur of the moment decision and was not disappointed with the night however, the only downside was the price of the food there, if £4.50 for a burger was not bad enough £2.50, having to wait 15 minutes for them to cook frozen chips and to get a tray that contained only 14 chips was downright criminal

Went here for my Mother in Laws birthday. We had a suite overlooking the dog track and saw 15 races throughout the night, which was brilliant. The food was out of this world and the racing created a great atmosphere.
