  • We really had a good evening to greyhound racing. By booking in advance online, there are interesting formulas including food, drinks and even a ticket for bet. We dined at the restaurant. Good food and very good view on racing. Before each race, an employee comes to each table to take bets. Bets are € 1. An address delivered at the entrance to see the results of each dog in the previous races. It helps to bet! Very good atmosphere. There's a race every 15 minutes. The Greyhound racing are spectacular. In short, to recommend!

  • I came here today with my family and we had a brilliant time! We pre-booked a restaurant package so that we had a 4 course meal and a glass of wine each. The 4 course meal came with a starter, main (including steak), dessert and a tea/coffee at the end. The food came throughout the evening, it wasn't rushed so that we were finished way before the races began which was lovely. The food was brilliant. It exceeded all of my expectations. I didn't find any pictures of the food online, so hopefully these attached will help. Everything we had was cooked very well, nicely presented and tasted lovely. The staff were great, very friendly and attentive asking if we wanted more drinks and chatting about our wins (mainly losses!). The betting staff came to out tables before each race to take our bets so we did not have to leave our dinner to participate. They were also helpful at explaining anything we didn't understand which was great for someone new to it like me! Almost all of the tables had a great view of the track. I would imagine that if you booked the cheapest restaurant tickets with short or no notice you would have these seats, but ours were great and the majority of the other seats would have been equally as good. I believe that the restaurant could hold close to 300 people, so there isn't a need to book too in advance unless you are part of a really big group. There was also detailed information for Greyhound owners on responsibly rehoming their dogs once they had finished racing which I found refreshing. Overall a great evening and I would highly recommend it for a night out!
  • If you love watching the dogs this is the place to be! Went there for a work night out, very friendly staff and great atmosphere! The food is so good! Would defiantly go again! Only down side is they don't have Heineken on tap!
  • My Son's confirmation truly enjoyable experience. He was made to feel very special. Will definitely be visiting again. Staff and food excellent.
  • Went here on a staff party. We where taken care of very well excellent service and lots of food and not skimpy on it. Only think i could say is for easy of being quick the coffee isn't made very nice like from a coffee machine which you put in ground coffee, even though they have a proper machine to do it they serve that not as good coffee unless you ask for premium coffee. But I brought it to the servers attention and he got me a machine coffee instead since he knew I loved my coffee. Still great service.
  • Never been to races before. But nice to experience this. Great view from the restaurant. And food was nice.
