Great fun day out, disappointed no room for anywhere to eat inside as so busy and rainy but had great day and would go again.

“Great day and great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We booked a suite over looking the finish line as a surprise for my wife. Sit down 4 course meal was very good served by a lovely hostess. The staff were excellent and we were well looked after and can recommend this to anyone who wants a private box for there party.

“Nice venue, food very disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I went here with some colleagues for a corporate day out. It was £160 per head.We started with a drink in the hotel, and then intended to go along to our 'box' at the allotted time.

Firstly they stop you halfway along the path and confiscate your glasses and bottles - which is utterly ridiculous when once you are back inside, you can buy more.

The box was nicely decorated, with our own private bar and waiter. Drinks were on the bar and included in the price. The food however was a huge disappointment - tiny portions, undercooked potatoes and harly any vegetables.

The waiter was lovely, very helpful and friendly. When we were asked to vacate the box however to go outside for the tribute act, they again told us we couldn't take any of the leftover bottles and had to decant our wine into plastic cups.

The tribute act was brilliant and the good weather added to the atmosphere but please Lingfield, don't make your guests feel like naughty teenagers before they have even sat down !

“much improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Having not been to the races at lingfield for a couple of years I was interested to see how the coarse had changed with the finishing of the hotel. It was a wild west themed evening and we had reduced priced tickets for being on their mailing list .The turnstiles are much improved and the whole arena seemed cleaner and better kept than at my last visit .There are still a couple of pinch points as you pass from the parade rings to the trackside but circulation was better than I remembered ,perhaps it was a smaller crowd .The bar area was busy, but getting a drink from the hut next to the parade ring was the quickest option. With the wild west theme there was a hog roast ,burger van and another mobile eatery to compliment the onsite facilities A thoroughly pleasant evening with the addition of an appearance from Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers and sweetened with a couple of winners
