Good venue for events on or outside of race days. Railway station on site, plentiful free parking. Pleasant location, caravan park on site, flat and level. Small town nearby, not a huge amount of accommodation.

Live locally to the pub and always used to go there until a few years ago. We stopped going because the new members of staff were unfriendly and snappy with customers. We decided to go again last night (26/6/15) the meals took a while to come & when one of the meals arrived (pea risotto with a piece of Salmon)... More

Running out or run out of everything, can't get the kids pasta order right and a medium rare steak ... if they have one ... come out very well done (and I don't mean to perfection!). Most of the puddings were out of stock too. Really poor show, and when settling the bill hear the table next door also sending... More

Very good standard of fish and chips, very popular, never tried the kebabs or kofta, best missing the first chip fry as the chips may have been pre fried.

Our group arrived here for breakfast at the weekend after a long drive and we thought ideal as all the breakfast buffet was still laid out ready at 11.10, but were told we couldn't have any as they stopped serving it at 11 and wouldn't serve us or plate up what was left, although there was clearly more than enough...

Stayed on the race course caravan site in our motor home. Good site quite basic, but only a 10 min walk to the town where we caught bus to stafford. Lots of shops in Uttoxeter but 99% closed on sundays. unlike most towns these days.

I have given up with this restaurant in the evenings. After several bad experiences here, their food is always warm at best, the service is normally slow and the portion sizes are tiny. You are better off going down the road to the dapple grey or frankie and bennys for tea, however being connected to a premier inn the breakfast... More
