“Excellent value & great night out!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We went to Owlerton on Saturday night as part of a Groupon deal! It was a fabulous night for our party of 6 and great value for money!! All the staff were very pleasant and helpful- especially the young men at the betting table who were very patient with the novice gamblers amongst us!
Will definitely return- even without the Groupon as they do lots of value deals themselves!!
Highly recommended!!

“Great Night Out”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Went to the dogs last night for my 40th with a group of friends, had an executive box, with celebratory pack. We had a self serve bar (all drinks came on one tab at the end) there are no prices of drinks displayed but we were drinking all night, bottles of cider, jugs of pimms, barcardi and coke, Britvic for the kids and we were all impressed at how reasonable to bar bill was. We did not have to go to the tote as they came to us, the staff were fantastic, really helpful and efficient, buffet was excellent and plenty of it. Only downside was that a dog collapsed (most likely dead) right outside our box while the kids were watching, I know this is one of the downsides to racing but the reaction from staff, trainers and vets should have been a lot faster as they did not realise the dog had gone down until we shouted. The race has several vets on site, why are they not stationed at points around the track all through racing to enable a quick response to any incidents? Apart from that we would definitely go back again.

Firstly, we were delighted to see that you had such a good time – we pride ourselves on the quality of our product and service, and in particular our value for money. We must, however, take issue about the display of prices – they are clearly displayed on the wall above the fridge.

As far as the incident was concerned, this was a very upsetting occurrence for everybody. Fortunately, incidents such as this happen very rarely. There is only 1 qualified Veterinary surgeon on duty, which is in accordance with the regulations of the Greyhound Board of Great Britain. We disagree that people did not react quickly, but would point out that the incident happened at the farthermost point of the track. Members of the trackstaff and the trainer reacted immediately and reached the greyhound as quickly as possible.

We are sorry that this spoilt what was a very enjoyable evening, and can fully understand your concerns. Should you wish to receive more information, we would be grateful if you would email enquiries@owlertonstadium.co.uk, and the relevant person will respond to any questions and / or concerns you may have. In the meantime, we sincerely hope that this will not deter you from going greyhound racing again, and that we can look forward to making sure that you have another enjoyable evening.

“Offers always on groupon”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Booked for a party of 24 on groupon, worked out at 4 quid a head, this got entry, programme, 3 £1 bets, 2 drinks and £5 bet voucher for the casino which is next door, also a £5 voucher for casino on back of programme. Unbelievable value, get there early to avoid queues on a Saturday night, great thing about greyhound racing is its fast paced, races every 10 mins. Great bar, cafe and tote betting. Great night out. Greyhound racing is a lot more than old blokes with flat caps drinking bitter!! I would recommend to anyone.

“Superb facilities”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Never had a night out at the dogs, I've been going to Owlerton since 1995 for Speedway and Stock Car racing. The place really has been upgraded over the years,the recent extension and refit to the Panorama Room looks really smart. Nice to see venues putting money back in to improve the facilities.

My only gripe, and this is been a bit nit picky. I attended the Stock Cars on May 6th, first visit for a year and was really looking forward to a chip butty. The best chip butties of any Speedway/Stock Car track I've been to. Straight to the snack bar when it opened, NO CHIP BUTTIES!!!!!!! As for the food available, can't complain. Full range of burgers (including a veggie burger which had pleased the Mrs) jumbo hotdogs, chicken nuggets, pizza, all sorts of stuff, all at good prices. Add fries & a drink to any main menu item for £2, go large for £2.30.

Looking forward to my next visit!
