£15 for a table in theEmpress Suite, curry, free pint and £2 bet. Excellent value. Curry was only average though. Coffee and tea expensive at £2 per cup. Not many people in probably due to it being January. We just about broke even on the racing. Good night out

My sister organised this for our birthday. We had a private box with a viewing balcony and tv to watch the races. You get your own tote person coming to take bets and a private bar for when you have finished the free drinks provided. The food was lovely and very generous portions. We all had a lovely evening, made... More

Went for New Year's Day racing today. Despite the terrible weather we had a good time and also managed to win a few pounds! Food was reasonably priced as were the drinks. Nice friendly atmosphere.

Arrived at towcester racecourse for the Boxing Day dog racing event to be greeted by two large queues - one queue was for pre-paid tickets and the other was for pay on the day guests - the issue was there was no staff on hand to advise which queue was which !!! Once inside we was issued with a large... More

Recently attended Boxing Day Greyhound racing at Towcester Racecourse - the venue itself is quite impressive in a nice location but I was shocked to see the staff using a print out to check who was booked to attend which meant the queues were slow to move. Once inside there were hardly any tables to sit at, staff at the... More

Just spent a nice day at the races but it could have been so much better with a bit of organisation. I have never stood in such a long queue for an event that I have pre-booked - only to find that half of the people were in the wrong queue and they had to go and join a new... More

Recently went to the dogs for the first time here & had a great time. Lots of free parking, a lovely venue, OK food &, once I'd plucked up the courage to talk to the slightly scary bookies, a good night betting the grand total of £2 a go!

Been several times to the racecourse and really like that they have an inside marquee if it is cold or wet. But the downside is the food, the hot dogs are inedible and often burnt or undercooked, I'm not sure how even a novice chef could get it wrong? I've ordered twice and friends have ordered many times (despite my... More
