Good food and service

As expected from a Table Table restaurant - the food and service was good. We ate here on 3 nights as we were staying in the next door Premier Inn. The hotel and restaurant seemed quieter than in previous visits (I'm guessing that this may be a result of Alton Towers being quieter) and the... read more

Good value and standard of typical branded pub food, but nothing special. Good value and friendly service. Recommend.

Have eaten in the Racecourse a number of times because it's so convenient but not again after the last visit. The food really is poor which as a result I spent too much time on the loo the next day.

Visited the racecourse as there was an Antiques fair taking place over the first weekend in September. Easy to find, good car parking close to station. Good facilities and very reasonable entrance charge. Definitely be back again when the next one is on.

Friendly course with easy excess by train. As with all such venues, drink prices are a little OTT but not as bad as some.

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.
