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.

What a truly distgusting place this is, I urge you not to visit. It is clear to see once inside that people go to get pissed or high, sticky carpets throughout. Many men with skinheads swearing, really not a place suitable for children. Beware you have been warned!!!!!!

I went here for the first time over the weekend. My experience of greyhound tracks had been predominately Romford, which has had the benefit of some investment over the years. Looking at previous reviews of this specific venue, there are some complaints over the decor, some over the food. I cannot comment on the food as I didn't eat here but I did find the drinks on the pricey side, not ridiculously expensive but more than I anticipated. As regards the decor, it is a greyhound track!!!! Be grateful it exists at all as I know many that have been closed down. People who visit here are going for a fun evening out and I quite like the fact that somewhere like this attracts stag and hen parties as it makes a change from the usual pub/ club treadmill. Thoroughly enjoyable night out and recommended to anyone.

I've been the Belle Vue several times. It's always an entertaining night, a lovely evening with friends and the work done by the stadium and its friends to protect retired greyhounds is admirable.

But this is a bit of a run down stadium. It could very much be doing with a bit of renovation.

Don't go expecting luxury, but you can get some great deals and you'll probably have a thoroughly enjoyable night.

I went there last night with some friends. The atmosphere was great. The service was good and the food was okay. But I won't be rushing to go back there again.

i have been here twice now and have been very impressed with the variety, the 1st time we went in approx march time it was very much just tickets booth outside and very much close to the action, however the 2nd time 24th May was quite formal with a meal and table service both of which were nice, but the trackside is much more exciting! i would definately recommend for a variety of events!
