  • As a group of over 30 people of all ages we have visited 'Glorious Goodwood' for 20 plus years. A picnic, racing and yet another picnic is the order of the day for us (no we are not a coach party) but...  more »

  • Dump. Not worth it. Over over priced - paid almost a fiver for an Amstel. To be honest it smelt of manure. Put it right back on the bar. Awful. Also...nowhere near enough food outlets. Racing?? It was ok..but what a dump. Rip off venue ..trading on a few laurels garnered over the summer. Don't waste your money.
  • Beautiful location and easy access. Free car parking leaves a 10-15 mins walk to racecourse. Excellent facilities with good selection of eating options.
  • This is not a review of the actual racecourse itself as we had a great day out there and would definitely go again. This is a review of the food specifically "Gourmet Burger" we were in the Lennox enclosure and the food choices were quite limited and all had long queues (which you would expect at a popular venue). We decided to have a gourmet burger that was advertised as a steak burger with lettuce, tomato and onion and sounded OK. As we were nearing the front of the queue We noticed that the burgers were being thrown on the counter by an angry looking lady and didn't actually look very appealing. At the point of order I questioned whether these burgers actually came with the salad as advertised and was assured by the lady on the till that they did and it would be added on request. I paid £21.00 for two burgers and a portion of chips !!!!! When moving down the queue to receive that food two very plain drab looking burgers were thrown on the counter by angry lady. I requested that the salad was added to be told that they didn't have any. I said that they were advertised as coming with salad and I was assured at the point of sale that they did and was charged accordingly. Angry lady then said that actually the salad was free and therefore the price is the same and that's all you are getting. I then requested to at least have some onions and was greeted with same response. We reluctantly took the food as we had queued for over twenty minutes and would miss the next race if we didn't. We went to get condiments and there were none just discarded empty bottles of sauce. The burgers were terrible and the chips were raw and cold. I took these back to the counter to let them dispose of this inedible food (I didn't dare ask angry woman for a refund) never the less I was still greeted with a barrage of abuse. This was appalling service and standard and it just felt like they were abusing their position in a captive market serving a shoddy product at an inflated price and they really had no interest in what they were serving they just wanted the money. Its a real shame that the course allows this exploitation as everyone else we met was very pleasant and helpful.
  • Brilliant afternoon at the races. Lots of amenities and little walking around. Plenty of areas to have a sit down if needed.
  • Wonderful fun afternoon /evening for everybody. Beautiful views, fantastic firework display. 10 out of 10.
