Beautiful surroundings on the approach to the Racecourse. Polite staff and plentiful parking. The weather wasn't great at all and unsure whether this had any impact on the services available. It was not overly packed with punters but there wasn't many places to get a drink or food. May try the Greyhounds as this seems to get pretty good reviews.

It was the first time I have ever been to the dogs and I had a fantastic time. Free entry brilliant and the food unit there was greatly priced with a great selection of food. The curry was amazing and really warming especially in these cold nights. Great service and night all around.

We booked a table for 2 at the Sunday Greyhound meeting, the price was £30 per person which is significantly below the horse racing restaurant price, though an afternoon of BAGS racing isn't a patch on the entertainment of horse racing. It would probably be much more craic on a Friday/Saturday night, as dog racing is more of an evening... More

We have visited the racecourse on numerous occasions for horse racing fixtures but never for greyhound racing. We always eat in the restaurant so are aware that the food is of good quality and value for money. Today's food was again good. Plentiful, tasty and served hot...but... There are a few failing though. Even though there was enough staff, I... More

A group of 8 friends went to try out the greyhound racing on Saturday 14th March. It was a first for most of us and we had a great evening. The one downside was that some of the food was stone cold. We did not complain at the time because it was a fair walk to buy the food and... More

Had a great time at Towcester races watching the greyhound racing today. Wasn't sure what to do this Mother's Day so gave this a go. The kids ( 4 and 3 years old), absolutely loved it, picking the numbers for the dogs and then cheering them on, youngest also liked cheering for the "rabbit" There was a really nice family... More
