This was our first time to Poole greyhounds, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening seated in the upstairs area. It didn't take long getting used to the betting system, and it was fun and easy. Bets from £1 up. Food was ok, although a little on the small side, was fast and tasty. Looking forward to going back here... More

Been quite a few times, very good evening that is well organised and the staff are always efficient and polite - only compliant is they should sell Cointreau

We got free tickets through the tourist information booklet . We had been before which is why we knew we would have good time . The kids all like a little chance of winning a couple of quid . So when we won a few races everybody was happy . Fast food there was nice , no queues at the... More

We went as a family on holiday with no idea what to do or how greyhound racing worked. It was very inexpensive to get in and that included a race card. We were shown around by an incredibly helpful race course manager and had everything explained including how to pick a winner. We were suprised how much the dogs loved... More

We had Poole greyhounds as part of a stag-do package. Although we had a lot included. The food vouchers we got entitled us to take-away food which was very average. The drinks vouchers we spent ages in a queue waiting to be served (one lady serving on a Saturday night? - Go figure!) It can be a good laugh but... More

For me I found it strange that there is no outside space to watch the dogs apart from a small area which I think is probably more for smokers near the starting kennels. On a warm evening it was a little uncomfortable inside. It would also have been better to have had more tables at the front of the viewing... More

Enjoyed a wonderful family evening at the greyhound stadium. We decided to eat in the restaurant. We thought the food was very tasty with generous helpings. There was an excellent choice. Best of all was the service, all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was lovely that staff came to the table to take your bet. Highly recommended.

Used a Groupon voucher so a fantastic deal. The burger which was included was much better than I expected. The staff were so polite and friendly. The whole stadium is well run and we were very impressed. Free parking as well! One doesn't have to spend a fortune as one can place bets from as little as 50p. We'll certainly... More
