We visited this place for an early evening meeting with a coach load (both staff & customers) from our local pub. It is a relatively small racecourse offering reasonable (if somewhat limited) facilities, with the special charm that comes from its lack of size. It was certainly a successful evening as we backed 5 out of 6 winners between our... More

We - a party of seven - booked a table in the Paddock Pavilion for the meeting on 3rd September. Given the changeable weather, it turned out to be a great choice. The restaurant is very smart indeed, housed in a posh marquee near the main stand and the winning post. We had a three course dinner which was excellent,... More

Been going to Stratford races since 1990 and hadn't been for 2-3 years so was surprised at the new Grandstand and Club facilities. Really modern stand and viewing is excellent. The Pavilion hospitality was good and as always staff were great.

We spent our 1 st ever time at Stratford race course for the afternoon evening meet and enjoyed it immensely,great course,friendly staff and not to expensive either.The course facility's are well laid out with plenty of bars and toilets,the only disappointment was we couldn't get a table in the restaurant but that was my fault because I didn't book.

We visit Stratford racecourse quite regularly and have been critical of it in the past. It doesn't deal with a big crowd particularly well and there is always a lack of seating. We avoided these issues on this occasion as we went to a Thursday meeting and it was great. Food and drink was easily and quickly available and you... More

Having visited Uttoxeter last week and Newmarket this weekend I make my comments hoping that the management read this report. The facilities to watch racing were not bad. The staff at the entrance to the Pass Area were not managed and one person kept people waiting around whilst one had nothing to do. The general staff were not smart and... More

Thank you for taking the time to make a review we are obviously disappointed by your comments. At the owners pass desk we only have one computer which swipes cards and so this can only be operated by one person, hence possibly why it looks like only one person is doing anything. At busy times we have an additional person... More

We went on a hot day with parents in their late eighties for a birthday lunch with the racing and despite ringing the day before our booking for the Pavillion restaurant had been lost. We stood for half an hour whilst the embarrassed staff tried to get management to sort things out which they eventually did. We shared a table... More
