Went to the racecourse yesterday. I found the staff friendly and you get a decent view of each race from the stands which is helped even more by the big screen in the middle of the course.

Lots of fun. Bet with the local bookies on the track apron. Excellent bar service and just a nicely appointed place for an early evening of fun at the track.

If you are in the Edinburgh area on a race day this is a must to visit. Try to book a table in the on-site Epperston Suite restaurant, you get a table upstairs, overlooking the winning post and if you have lunch you keep the table all afternoon. The food is first-class and the staff are friendly and helpful. Not... More

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
