Also new to me compared with previous visits was the two course meal. I had soup followed by Haddock and chips. Both were very good. Derek Thompson was MC for the evening and kept... More

Attended friends Wedding her yesterday, and what a fantastic idea. These people running the Musselburgh Racecourse should consider offering more Wedding facilities on Racedays. Great food, the actual Races, friendly staff, first class facilities. Could knock spots off other Edinburgh venues.

The place was buzzing with people and a great atmosphere in the stands. There were still places to have a quiet cup of coffee and study form. Apart from a having... More

Had an enjoyable day at the Easter race meeting at Musselburgh racecourse. Majority of ground is Tarmac so even although it rained you don't have to walk on wet grass. The facilities are good and suitable for all ages. The atmosphere is electric especially when the racehorses come thundering towards the winning post.
