Food oh dear 🤢🤢
Jul 2021 • Couples
Love a day at the races, and wolverhampton as a racecourse lovely, but the food and drink leave a lot to be desired, the Guinness was like dish water, and the burger and chips,were in my opinion nothing short of disgusting, £8.50 for a burger and chips is to my mind a rip off, especially as the bun fell apart and the burger looked in need of cooking, in fact it was that bad my GF threw up, when we made it known to the lad of the till, he's comments where, I quote ,I don't know what to say, how about an apology or sorry I get the manager for you, no nothing,well I'm sorry wolves races, I love your track, but you are ripping people off serving that pile of dogs mess, sorry I'm so angry about it ,you wouldn't believe. Track great, viewing great, staff on turnstiles brilliant, just don't have the food.

Friends annual trip
Jan 2020
This racecourse is one of the nicest i have been to. I am not an expert but this place is 'cute'!! It is small, everything you need is close. From the paddock to winner's enclosure, bar to toilets. Love this place so much. You dont have to worry about getting lost or losing your friends!

Boxing Day treat
Dec 2019 • Couples
Love coming here last year, so we came again. Nice small course, intimate and great selection of food and drinks outlets available. Given the time of year, we paid a little more and were in the premier enclosure, meant that when it started raining we were under cover. Easy to get to, parking simple and easy. Will be back again.

Boxing Day in the Premier Suite
Dec 2019 • Family
A group of 10 family members attended to celebrate Boxing Day, as we did the year before. The bar staff, although friendly, were terrible. They were very slow, didn’t seem to know what they were doing, how to use the till, where everything was, which cups to serve the drinks in etc. I think they were from a recruitment company, rather than experienced staff.

The food options and quality were also terrible. My pizza slice was cold and congealed and downstairs there was a burger van which we queued for in the rain for a burger and chips which was cold and over priced. I was unaware of anymore fast food options.

That being said, we had a brilliant day and plan on attending next year (as we did last year also), however small improvements would make the day even better.

Christmas party
Dec 2019 • Business
Not great £72.50 a ticket not good value for money. The food was at best average the service wasn't great. Evan small things like the Christmas crackers on the tables where the cheapest ones I have seen. I was expecting more for what we paid and was very disappointed. I don't think we would go back again.

Gentleman's evening
Nov 2019 • Couples
Went here for the first time, 23rd, ska night,, I'd read a few negative comments and was apprehensive,, however from start to finish we we're very impressed,, we had originally booked into the ringside restaurant for the ska night, meal included, however we were upgraded to the horizons restaurant due to numbers and found the whole experience very pleasant,, the service was excellent, the food was very good,, we set up a tab so no need to go to the bar,, there were plenty of staff available,, it was easy to bet, always someone on hand for you to order drinks or place a bet,, the views of the track were good,, it's nice when you can ask for your starter /main /dessert when you are ready,, there's a lift if you don't fancy the stairs,, overall it was a perfect evening, a credit to the staff, chefs and organising team,, would definitely be back

When is a Grandstand not a Grandstand
Nov 2019
From my visit today I can only think that the racecourse cares only about the people who can afford expensive meals.
I paid £16 to get into the Grandstand area to find the whole of the Grandstand is cordoned off. It was not mentioned as you entered. Hence the options were to stand and watch the big screen or go on the rails to at least see part of the race. Nowhere to get out of the drizzle that descended. Surely if the Grandstand is out of action you should offer a discounted rate.
The food offer is limited and you cannot even get a decent cup of coffee.
Having gone to most courses in the UK I can say that Wolverhampton cares little for the average punter and looks after the corporate diner.

We’re ever so sorry to hear that you felt you had a bad experience at the racecourse on Saturday, and were not made aware of the Grandstand steppings being closed before you purchased a ticket on the gate. We value all of our raceday guests and are disheartened when we receive any form of negative feedback. Due to the bad weather we experienced prior the raceday, we had to close the steppings to ensure we provided a safe environment for our visitors and did not put anybody at risk who attended the race meeting. If we have to close the steppings in the future, we will certainly make it clearer for our guests by positioning signs on the entrance for those purchasing tickets on the gate, along with a message on our website for guests who purchase tickets in advance. The Grandstand Enclosure and Concourse area remained open which offered shelter for our guests, but we had to close the steppings to ensure the safety of our guests. We serve Lavazza coffee in our vending machines, Pelican rouge on the bars and Starbucks Coffee in the hotel and apologise that you did not enjoy the coffee we offer and feel the food options are limited. We are always trying to improve our food offerings and will certainly take your feedback on board and look into more options for our guests. We appreciate all our customers and their loyalty to the racecourse and would like to offer you complimentary tickets to return to the venue. Please email info@wolverhampton-racecourse.co.uk with your full contact details and we will post them to you immediately. Thank you.
