Nice little track, had a really nice day out. It's easy to get to and whilst the car park is about 800 yards away they do provide a courtesy bus.

Oh, the food is just rubbish, I had a veg tartlet effort to start, I would rather the waitress brought me the box that it came in. Main course- what looked like Thai imported skin on chicken breast with no flavour at all. Stuffed with a substance resembling haggis, it's the first time in my life I have had haggis... More

Ace, compact racecourse - easy to find and park for free. Variety of viewing positions, lots of different ways to place a bet with great staff who patiently explained everything necessary. Good food and drink venues - viewing enclosure is easy to access and number of events led to a most enjoyable afternoon. We'll be back.

Went to the races with my 6 year old. The weather made the day, Sun all day. Felt like I was away abroad. Although not a full family day they had a bounce slide and roundabout, which kept her entertained with other kids for the whole day. Drinks and food prices are expected, can or pint about £3.50 to £4.... More

10th year and this time is was just too busy. It is very well organised. Layout of things changes slightly every year. Queues this year though were too long for everything probably as it was on a Saturday and they gad upped the numbers. Great fun for a day out though

As a resident of Australia, I attended the race meeting and couldn't see a thing due to marquees. I reported my concern on the day and then ten days later via email. I received no reply to my complaint-how bad is that?

Just attended the race meeting on the day before ladies day and really it was extremely poor. The tents for hospitality fir the next day blocked the view of the racing from virtually all but the top steps of the stand. There were no rolls or snacks available after the first race. On mentioning this i was told they would... More
