Free entry for dog racing. Reasonable drinks. Lots of space by the track so you can see your dog win (or lose in my case) there was a friendly atmosphere, no trouble, easy parking. Would definitely recommend as something different for a weekend night out, me and the boy loved it.

It seemed a lot of money £29.99 each (£9.99 for under 12) when we booked. But the food and service was amazing. Starter, main course, pudding, coffee/tea and scones/cupcakes. We were stuffed. Plus a free race card (£3 usually) & the service and atmosphere was great. The room opened into a balcony which overlooked the track so we all piled... More

Fond memories of Towcester as an occasional visitor over the last 35 years. I'm afraid the dramatic uninterrupted view of the horses going out into the country and returning up the punishing hill have been ruined by dumping an' athletics' track in front of the stands. OK, watch it on the big screen you say, yes your right I can... More

Went here for a conference and was knocked out with the venue. Great architecture, brilliant greyhound track and was fortunate to see a couple of races of retired greyhounds whilst I was there and the horse race track also looked glorious. The accommodation was well spaced out and the hospitality and food.drinks was first class with will waiters at hand.... More

Had a fantastic time here on opening night back in December. Food was really good and service was just as good. We did have a box and felt it was well worth the money spent. Great night out and the dogs was ace! Highly recommend!!!

On a golf society weekend, was told about Towcester Dog Track, so 12 of us headed out. Excellent facilities, fair price on the beers, plenty of bookies taking our monies. Biggest plus was It was free to get in

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.
