What a great event and place. They do this race every year - weather permitting - and we have been numerous times and love it. it’s a great thing to do, after a boozy hogmanay, get out in to the fresh air and see some gentile sport an bit of a flutter to test your New Years luck, and by... More

My work and I attended the Ayr Racecourse for their Christmas Party Night in December 2015. The cost of this was £40. Very very disappointing. The entertainment was ok, however, the night started off very badly when all of the ladies entering the venue were asked to open their handbags - how offensive and degrading as the men were allowed...

Was my work's Christmas party night on Saturday 19th December, and was welcomed with my bag being searched, followed by sub standard food and miniscule portions, mediochre service, and watered down alcohol. The band/entertainment wasn't much better. Was so disappointed that our party left at 11 am. Have no plans to return.

Venue,music and food were good but we soon realised that we were not feeling the effects of the alcohol that we were spending a small fortune on, it wasn't until my boss went to the bar with a large order, did he notice that the alcohol was being left out of some of the drinks! The bar staff just said... More

Great day out, service and facilities are so much better than the last time I went. Drinks and food were excellent and I picked the winner of the big race. All in good day out.

Almost 4 hour drive from home address but well worth a visit. Went here at the end of September and enjoyed it. Talking to a few different people at the racecourse there was a difference of routes taken to get to the venue from North Yorkshire/ A 66 area. The general consensus was that coming off the motorway at A70... More
