“Great fun night out”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Went to the dog track on a Friday night on a special offer. We had a 2 course meal which was really good and has much improved from my last visit. Racing was good and although 3 of us lost most of our money my husband had a great win. This is a real family and friends night out and is great fun.

“Pleasant Night Out!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This dog track is fairly local to us so it makes a relaxed night out. You can go trackside very cheaply. There is a bar and fast food available. We usually go to the restaurant in the grandstand. You have to book on line or by phone which is worth doing as there are usually offers on. On our most recent visit we used our tastecard to get two for one, which on a Saturday night is excellent!
There is usually a couple of differently priced menus. Worth going for the more expensive as you get more choice. It's got to be said that you wouldn't visit here for the food only! Don't get me wrong the food is quite pleasant and enjoyable, but that's all. I certainly have never felt dissatisfied. Once in you keep the table for the night. The restaurant is quite raked so you get a good view of the racing and there are TV monitors to follow the races. Service is very friendly and apart from a food waitress there is someone to get drinks as well, although you can go to the bar yourself. Bets are also taken at the table. And don't worry they will explain it for you.

All in all this is a pleasant night out.
