“New Panoramic Restaurant”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We have often visited Kempton Race Course and used the Panoramic Restaurant and I have to say have always been impressed. They have altered the menu to more of a Bistro set up and we were very impressed with the food and the overall service. Only one small complaint the air conditioning made it extremely cold on what was probably the hottest day of the year we could have done with a jacket indoors, this made things a little uncomfortable. Other wise well done guys really nice and would recommend to anyone.

“Jumps fixtures are better”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Racing wise Kempton has a split personality. It has a lot of relatively low grade flat races on an all weather surface. These run all year round , during the day and evenings with flood lights . Sometimes the attendances can be very low although the evening meetings are more popular but attract more of a crowd out for a good night, rather than racing fans.
On the other side during the autumn/spring/winter Kempton is one of the better class National Hunt( jumping) courses. These afternoon meetings attract more of a racing enthusiast crowd.
The general ambience at Kempton is not bad but not great . Facilities starting to show their age and not a particularly scenic setting. Beer and food choices quite limited.
However if you buy package tickets in advance ( including food and drink vouchers, free racecard and a free admission ticket for the future) then this is excellent value for money.Parking is easy and free and not usually that busy. Plus it has its own train station.

“Two weekly Antiques Fair”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you have any interest in antiques and collectables of all kinds and ages and you have not been to Kempton Park Race Course on a Tuesday of every other week, you are seriously missing out. The gates open at 6.30am and admission is free. There are indoor halls (3) and loads of outdoor stands with a huge range of items at prices to suit all pockets. I went along again yesterday 27th May 2014 and was not disappointed. The stand holders come from all over the country and abroad and whatever you are looking for, you can normally find something to make you happy. There are catering facilities available and the catering company that are based at the venue offer and excellent breakfast at a sensible rate in comfortable surroundings. Give it a look. I love it but wish I had more money to spend!!

Superb venue - twilight racing - then dinner from excellent menu in restaurant overlooking the racecourse - everyone enjoyed their meal and the experience. Very attentive staff, they overlooked the fact that we did not have a clue on betting !!
