Eight of us spent the evening in the restaurant watching the dog racing. The food was excellent and the service by Louis and Oliver superb. The weather was atrocious with gales and horizontal rain but in the warmth of the restaurant it didn't affect the evening. The event was very professionally run and all 12 races completed on time.

Visited for a corporate event during a non-race day. The staff couldn't have done any more to make our day go smoothly, they were great! It really lived up to the good reputation it has.

I thought the food would be a bit cheap as it was a deal and was very pleasantly surprised, lovely roll/baguette the sausages were of good quality and the chips were hot and cooked. The... More

We were looking for an event to take staff/directors on following a busy Christmas. We booked for 13 in the restaurant. In the week before I received an email advising we had been upgraded in to a box on the 2nd floor. On arrival, we were directed to the boxes but then told there was no booking for us! After... More

I went to the greyhound racing with a group of friends. We got a special deal for the VIP suite which included a three course meal. On arrival there was lovely fresh bread, olives and oil and vinegar for dipping on the table. There was an imaginative choice of food for each course and the service was excellent, drinks brought...

Paid entry about 10GBP per person on Boxing day for dog racing. The course is well managed, easy to get through the gates, good signage. Toilets are clean and there are bars inside as well as food options. On the day we went there was a funfair there suitable for younger children. The entire course was clean and the betting... More

Excellent event in private VIP suite. Two course dinner including entrance and race card. The food was excellent, piping hot and the presentation was good. The room was spacious with a large viewing balcony over the course, and had several large screens on the walls too. The staff were most accomodating, delightful personalities and everyone was most helpful. The new... More

We booked for the restaurant for a horseracing fixture and were pleasantly surprise to be emailed a few days before to say we'd had a free upgrade to a VIP box! The box held four tables - with each party having exclusive use of their allocated table. There was also a private balcony albeit it was too windy and rainy... More
