Plumpton Racecourse is my favourite venue to watch horse racing. The main attraction is the intimacy of the palce. The Parade Ring is very acessible and the view from the Grandstand are very good. All the other facilities are good including parking. The Ladies Day 'Best Dressed Lady' event has been a shambles for the last two years. They used to have 'spotters' going around the course slecting 20 Ladies for the 'semi final' then 10 were then selected for the final. Recently the 'semi final' has been a 'free for all' with what seemed like 60 Ladies cramming onto the stage seeking attention from the judges. Not good!

Good afternoon, Many thanks for taking the time to review us and we are glad that you enjoy the racing and facilities here - long may it continue. We are sorry to hear that you felt the ladies day procedures weren't up to scratch, we will try and ensure we tighten the procedures up for this season. We had several complaints previously as spotters meant that not everyone could enter the competition which some had felt unfair but we will review again for this years edition. Best Wishes, Dan & The Plumpton Team

Plumpton Racecourse offers a tranquil, enjoyable race day. The course is great quality and views from the stands are good. With the help of the big screen you can see everything that’s going on. For spectators, the course is easy to get around and the food and drink are both great quality. I highly recommend as a raceday in the countryside!

We've been to Plumpton a few times but decided to book lunch in the marquee restaurant for a change. Firstly, I love the course, its small and quaint and has a really friendly feel to it, I enjoy coming here much more than the larger courses. We arrived and where shown to our table and given a welcome glass of prosecco. The menu was set with salmon and quails egg to start, chicken for the main and a chocolate dessert. The food was good and the service friendly. There was an optional cheese board if you wanted to pay the extra. A jockey (sorry I can't remember his name) gave us his tips before the start of the racing and during the races took us down to one of the jumps while he spoke to jockeys as they went down to the start and we stood by the fence as the horse flew past us. Fabulous sight. There is a tote in the marquee should you not wish to go outside and a screen but we chose to go our to stand by the fence for each of the races. We had a fabulous afternoon and would highly recommend booking the marquee.
