“Not value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

A night at The Dogs was not my cup of tea. On a work night out, 12 of us booked an Executive Box and at £25 each I thought this expensive,then there's betting costs on top. It was cold too, the small room was cramped with us all in and only seemed to be heated by a fan blower above the patio door onto the viewing veranda. The Box seemed to be of a Portakabin type construction which is not really 'executive'. Buffet looked good but too chilled from the cooler.
Staff were very friendly and worked hard, and the chap who took bets was really on the ball and patient with our party. The dog racing also looked well organised but the place looked shabby in some areas. I'm not a gambler so I wouldn't go again.

“Ultimate night out for all occasions.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

My band played the stadium on the 14th of December 2013, from entering the venue to leaving the staff were unbelievably brilliant. Friendly and polite, we were looked after from start to finish.

The food was beautiful, well presented and delicious. Adding to that was having a flutter on the dogs whilst we ate, a perfect combination for what is a perfect night out.

One more thing, we have to give a shout out to Rochelle. She was on hand for anything that was needed and along with the rest of the staff, made the whole night run perfectly.

“Always a cracking night !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

I have been to The stadium many times with all ages of friends and family. Either for a drink and a bet or a meal In the panorama Resturant. The food in the Resturant is exceptional.
One night I even sponsored a race for some friends that came with us it was great they had the race named after them. They also went and presented the trophy to the winner. It was about £40 and was given the trophy back by the winner to keep they were over the moon.
The staff really do well to collect your bets from the table.
Even the chicken in a basket is great it is what it is. A beer bet and a bite to eat.

If your down to earth you will have a great night. If your not go to the ritz !!

“Work Christmas night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Eight of us visited on 5 December for a work's Christmas do. £25 for 4 courses, all well presented, well cooked, enough without being over faced and served at a steady pace to enable you to bet on the races as well. Service from the staff was friendly and helpful, atmosphere was lively. Nice and clean venue. This was in the Panorama Restaurant, but have been in a box for a birthday party and in the main bar for a basket meal. All good, would recommend for a night out.
