A tired old venue which is falling apart at the seams. All said and done the main stand ( which is the only one that seems to be open ) is buzzing with atmosphere . Don't expect a top and tails experience as this is one for your average Joe Soap namely me . A great night out for the... More

I recommend this place because it is different, fun and you can get involved as much or as little as you want. You can book a table and enjoy the races while you eat the food (quite average but adequate) or just show up and have fast food. Plenty of drinks and you can bet through the betting companies and...

This was my first experience of live greyhound racing. We were seated and served a 3 course meal. I found the food to be of a high standard for the price. The service was also very good, with friendly, helpful staff regularly visiting our table to take drink orders and bets for each race. I would really like to come... More

Completely disappointed with the whole experience, spent all the time queueing to either get a drink or place a bet. Missed out on 2 races due to queues to place bet. Left after the 7th race. Life's too short to be waiting in line!!!!!!

Fun night out with friends. Covered areas for when it's raining, lots of space to watch the race outside or in side on TV's. The place really does need a refurb as could be made much nice, but still a nice night out. Look online for vouchers - we got in for free and a free drink!

Not a huge fan of racing animals. Attended for a friend's birthday. The animals looked sad. I was harassed by very drunk men and the staff didn't seem like a happy bunch

When I lived in London, I loved going dog racing, then the tracks started to close and now wimbledon is the only one left in the capital. I'm more old school and love to bet so it'll always be a passion for me. But I've taken loads of non sporting/racing folk here and they've loved it. Primarily its a cheap... More
