“Didn't win a bean- but nice evening!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We went to Owlerton stadium with a voucher from LivingSocial- This was £11 for two people and included: Entry, a racecard each, two drinks each, a hotdog each and £3 worth of bets per person. This was a fantastic deal- really worth the money. This venue offers lots of deals like this and I would say they are worth it. The inside has been renovated and is very nice, we sat downstairs originally which was good as we had a good view of the track but there were a few too many children and we were sat quite close to the food stand so we moved upstairs. It was very nice up here, again with big windows to see the track and nice décor. It was very busy and not enough seats so would recommend getting there early to get a seat.
Overall a great night and we visited the casino after and won £80 which made it a better night overall!!

“Stock Car Racing”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Took my family to the stock car racing event at the weekend - and it was a lot of fun.

If you have young children I would recommend getting there early so you can sit in the bar and restaurant areas - great view through the large window and not too noisy for the children.

Food is simple and inexpensive such as hotdogs, chips, pies and pizza - so again great for the children, and didn't cost too much to feed six of us.

What I liked about the event was that there was never any gaps from one race to the other - so always something to watch. The banger racing was by far the most entertaining with a number of crashes - we had a laugh trying to identify what cars they were!

Only gripe was there isn't much choice of drinks for the children - and as you are not allowed to bring your own, would be good to see fruit shoots or something similar at the bar

Great family day out on a Sunday if you are after something a bit different - and large choices of seating and standing areas.

“Good fun”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Great fun, great for a night out with friends in the bar.
Not worth booking the boxes, no atmosphere and food not that great, we booked for our works Xmas party, it was disappointing and really not worth the £40.00. Poor organisation, no music, dancing or atmosphere.

“Great food & service !”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely meal in the restaurant and service was good too , I have been a few times and it's always been brilliant but if I don't go in restaurant then I tend to go on the first Tuesday of every month for free entry, drink,food and bet as it's a great deal other wise it can be an expensive night out :)

“WSSC night at the dogs”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Mostly enjoyable
Few other remarks, Napolian bar needs more seats and tables as its difficult to eat chicken in basket while your standing up, kids should not be allowed in there after 9.00pm, the carpet needs changing as we tended to stick the it, the ladies toilet needs a refurb only one hand drier, other than these points it was ok
