25 years ago Musselburgh Racecourse was a dilapidating Victorian ruin. Thanks to huge investment even those who pay the lowest entry have more comfort for refreshment than the members, owners and trainers bar provided all those years ago! Full colour, very handily sized and detailed racecards are available for £2.50 on entry. Those opting for the cheapest entry can enjoy... More

Musselburgh racecourse is a fantastic venue. I have attended a few meetings this year and thoroughly enjoy the day out. The facilities are spotless. We sampled food in the Bistro, we were served quickly and the staff were very nice. Excellent Day out racing.

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. The only downside was paying £13 for a very average steak pie and chips in the Bistro but that would not put me... More

Had a great day out here at this tiny racecourse. Was the family day so lots of families though they mainly stayed in one area. Good selection of bars mostly reasonably prices (I spent the day drinking from the Pimms bar with drinks priced between £3-£5) and some really great food vans on site - the pizza was fab and...

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
