My daughter was married last Saturday and the reception was held at Towcester Racecourse. What can I say, it was magnificent!! The venue is breathtaking on a beautiful summers day!! We had Greyhound Racing on as well which went down a storm! The team at the Racecourse could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble and we... More

Having organised to go for a family birthday, we booked the meal package at the racecourse. Upon arrival this establishment was easy to find and park. We were greeted at the door, and shown upstairs to the dining room for the evening. We were treated with faultless service, having a 3 course meal, which was cooked to perfection, table waited...

As a party of ten we had a great night at the dogs, good food and great Guinness, the kids that were with us also enjoyed the races. Having been here I hope to return for one of the horse meetings when they start, a great night out for all the family.

First time visiting Towcester and i can safely say, it will be the first of many! Brilliant time from start to finish. Parking was so easy no queuing straight in, directed to free spaces and parked. The building itself is very clean and modern, there are 2 bars, one with cocktails, champagne and other wines and beers. Only slight negative... More

Went here as part of a night and and had a great time with friends that I only see one every 3 months. It's a really picturesque place and a great atmosphere. The downside is the price of drinks and the food (pulled pork wrap and tiny foam tray of chips) £6.50. Other than that a good evening

Using a Groupon voucher £13 covered an outing for two including entry, a meal, a drink and a bet. Was entertaining. Maybe not ideal for kids. Maybe a lads night out. Food good - we had a foot long sausage in a baguette with chips - very tasty. There is a cocktail bar and a bar.

Enjoyed an unexpected night at the greyhound racing. Staff were friendly, races were frequent and the place had a good atmosphere.
