Great day out. Cheap alcohol, good weather and nice atmosphere. Quite strict with ID etc. My girlfriend forgot hers and they refused entry (we're 26) at one entrance. Luckily they we got in at a different entrance as it would have spoiled the day.

A special place to meet with friends where champions have graced the turf for 150 years. Best parking is in the centre of the course. Well priced drinks and great variety of food.
