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.

Brilliant weekend with 22 tents and 40 people. Facilities good (50p for a shower) , flat surfaces and EHU if required. Sherrie and Darren , the wardens , very friendly and helpful! Stayed on for following week with friends and had great time around Stratford and Warwick. Went racing on Thursday night, great fun, but £3.80 for a can of... More

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

Management response:

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

Booked clubhouse window table, they messed up and moved us beforehand but we had partial refund with free champagne and wine. Fabulous lunch for hot summers day, table presented well.

Easy to park close to the stands and a short walk to where the action is . Buzzing atmosphere from the outset . Plenty of bookies and tote makes it easy to put your wager on . We booked The Paddock Pavilion restaurant but it was disappointing . They ran out of Sauvignon Blanc before the main course lunch was... More

Went to race night with friends from work. Although rainy the event was not damped. Great atmosphere and lovely friendly staff. Well organised and excellent fun. It's a definite for a regular venue for the future. One sad note was one of the horses got injured but the care and sensitivity shown was reassuring to all who care about these... More
