Not a fan of horse racing, but the wife loves to gamble when we're in England. Reasonable facilities in the cheaper Grandstand. Was very impressed by how friendly and welcoming all the staff were. Pleasant evening out.

Good choice of drinks and food. We went on a very hot day and more seating outside would be beneficial. Staff were friendly. Overall a good day.
