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.

We had a family outing for Sunday lunch and high tea (£29.95pp). The food was excellent and nothing too much trouble in terms of service (thank you, Maximilian, great job!). When you book a table in the restaurant, you have use of that table for the afternoon and a balcony from which to watch the races, with bookmaker and Tote... More

We went greyhound racing but have been previously to watch the horses. It is a fun day out, but be prepared for a breeze/wind as the racecourse sits fairly high up on exposed ground.

My partner and I were kindly invited by one of our suppliers -Glazrite - along with other to a Friday nite meeting. The place is fantastically set out and we had the large room overlooking the finishing line ( approximately 200 people ). What a great atmosphere and helpful staff. They served a three course meal that was tremendous and... More

My partner and I had a night at towcester dogs. We went to there restaurant. It was £38.50 each for a 3 course meal. The meal was excellent and the service was just as good. We had a really good view with access to the balcony which was brilliant. If people don't want a meal it's free to get in... More

Spent fathers day at dog racing and 3 course dinner in restaurant. No issues with dog racing side of the attraction, in fact they have done a wonderful job there, however the restaurant needs serious help. Situated in Hesketh box I was expecting excellent food and service. Firstly food, having placed the meal order five days prior they served five... More
