A large family group of us (some very young and some not so) visited Towcester racecourse on a Sunday afternoon to the dog racing meeting. We were blessed with brilliant weather so we laid our blankets on the grass just by the front rail. Simply, we had a fantastic time, everyone enjoyed the quick succession racing, the anticipation plus of... More

We went to the greyhound racing on a Saturday night and ate in the restaurant. It was well run, the food was fantastic, the atmosphere was relaxed, dedicated service, all in all a good night. The entry is free. The meal was not cheap but was delicious and worth it! You could bet as little as 50p so it did... More

We have been regulars at Towcester, enjoying a dining experience and the horse races for a few years now however, yet to try our hand at the Greyhounds. What a great day we had! Brilliant atmosphere, clean facilities, great crowd and so much fun for my son and us :) Bonus of free admission too! I'm sure we'll be visiting... More

Great atmosphere, clean facilities and a free night out. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Luckily it was a beautiful evening as you are exposed to the elements, unlike Romford. Pity there isn't anywhere inside to watch the racing other than on a screen, otherwise this would be a brilliant venue. Race cards are £2 each but I printed my... More

A night at the races is always a fun event and really doesn't have to cost you the shirt off your back. The meal packages are very respectable indeed, however to be really honest I always enjoy being outside. Do go watch the beautiful horses parade before each race, soak up the excitement and the arcane tic tac betting systems.... More

This was booked for a family get together for three birthdays. My daughters paid for VIP guest tickets including the three course meal for greyhound racing on a Saturday evening. We had asked and got confirmation that my Assistance Dog would be allowed access to the venue in advance. Upon arrival, a doorman behind a desk pointed at my dog... More

A good card, quality racing but we didn't get a programme (they have run out before on busy nights). They could at least have the facility of running off extra race cards. The bar service was slow (missed races) as was the food service (missed races) where there was a lack of sauces! It's usually a better night out but... More

We came for lunch today - 16 of us in the end - and was very enjoyable apart from the afternoon tea. On both tables we were short of scones and cup cakes. A small thing but everyone on the table noticed and was embarrassing for me given I had invited 16 guests for my birthday celebration. I did complain... More
