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.

As has ben noted in other reviews this facility is not the most luxurious. I last visited Belle Vue stock car races in the mid sixties but took my granddaughter and her friend along for the first time this week. For a family ticket of £20, 2 adults and 3 children are admitted. For three hours entertainment 7pm till 10pm, that's not bad value. There are some seats inside the "grandstand" if you want to be inside or you can stand on a terrace outside. I would recommend taking your own folding chairs if staying outside. The cafes are simple and prices what you would expect in a venue like this. Fish or pie and chips with gravy and a drink £6.50. A pint at the bar £3.60. It is desperately in need of pulling down and rebuilding though.

Tired building and far too many stag and hen dos, I thought there was a dress code but some of the outfits are past risque. Staff are moody and seem disinterested in interacting with you. There are many better places to visit in Manchester.

Absolutely awful place. Won't be bothering to go there again. Filthy and rough. Swearing everywhere. Fights. Urinating up the fences. Not a place for children.
