Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: What makes the best nights out? Laughs that just won’t quit, great food, drink and racing entertainment with good friends; nights where you come home fizzing - from all the excitement of an evening spent in an atmosphere so electric it crackles. Nights that get talked about! Fancy one of those nights? Good: Because you’re in the right place. Manchester’s Greyhound Stadium is what you’d expect ... and a whole lot of what you wouldn’t. It’s a magic combination that conjures up one of the city’s biggest nights out. In fact, it’s quite probably, one of Manchester’s greatest nights out. Partying, celebrating, a night with friends, dining in the restaurant or entertaining in the suites – whatever night is your night - you’re going to love the dogs.

Following a trip to Belle Vue this weekend, and despite their own website implying this was a place to bring family and friends, I can honestly say it is not a place that I shall be returning to with family or friends.

We had the misfortune to witness a group of men openly snorting drugs and a mass brawl in the area in front of the upstairs bar ( a brawl in which even the security staff were attacked). Add to this a general grotty feel to the place, protesters outside the entrance gates and expensive beer, Belle Vue is definitely a place I will be avoiding in the future.

Love the dogs..........no thanks.

Took hubby for a surprise weekend in Manchester yet again!! this time for his birthday. We couldn't manage to get into our usual City Warehouse as they where full, luckily friends offered to put us up. I booked the dog track as a surprise and we had a really great night made even better by the fact that we made enough back on betting to cover our expenses, this was great as we had no idea what to bet on we just picked the names we liked! , The food was really good, three courses followed by coffee. The quality of the food was excellent, well presented and served by a really great group of waiters and waitresses. We had a lovely guy who came to our table to take the bets. All in all a really great night out.

The evening was arranged on a Groupon deal £16.00 for two people including entrance, Race card, a free drink and a Burger/Hot dog.
The bar prices after your first drink were extortionate, the staff had a bad attitude and the quality of the drinks were poor....
The food was cold and very poor quality, I would not give it to my dog!
The races were great and thats all you can say..
Gone to the dogs.......Yes it has
