“Good day out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We ahd a good day out at the races, although the fact that you cant take plastic glasses outside but you can take cans if somewhat ridiculous and the two security guards, one lady and one black guy, were monitoring the crowd like we were doing something terrible . Also there are no oap concessions, but students get entry for free?

“Very nice and enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Second time, very much enjoyed jump racing. Alcohol is quite expensive as well as soft drinks. You can't take alcohol into stand which is different to some courses. Quite clean too.

“Excellent All Round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Had an excellent lunch in the Paddock Restaurant; food and service top grade. The facilities of the course are good. As a novice race-goer the roving tote lady was a bonus and a great help. We will look to go again when we visit the area.

“A great evenings racing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

For once the sun was shining, the racecourse looked in good condition and there was an excited buzz in the crowd, which all made for an enjoyable evenings racing. It was easy to find the racecourse, parking was even easier with stewards directing you right to your place to park. Entry was quick and pain free. There was a good bar area serving a good selection of drinks and plenty of places to get something to eat. The racing was good and all in all it was a great evening out.

“Great evening out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Best fun I have had in a long time. Group of us from work took the train to the Town and then went to the evening races. Bet the odd £1 on the races and cheered the horses home. Great fun if you keep the bets low and the beer intake high. Nice course and atmosphere. Can't wait to go again, especially as I came home with more money than I started with
