  • Good amenities. Clean and easy to find. Food, soft drinks and alcohol served throughout at different accessible areas. Price is awful. £7 for a jacked potato. £3 for small bottles water.
  • Disgusting. The 'security guard' Peter is just a Swasticker short of having the complete outfit. I was totally berated by this person for absolutely no reason. The type of little Adolf that likes to ask rhetorical questions and when you try to answer just shouts over you till you give up. A nasty man ruining what was supposed to be a nice day out. Will never visit this place again thanks to their staff.
  • A fabulous venue! As a horse-racing fanatic this is one of my favourite race courses. Tip: prices of the food and drinks here is absurd, so bring your own!
  • Had an absolutely fantastic time, everyone was so friendly and helpful - notably the members of staff. Food and drink acceptable although pricey. We were in the County Enclosure.
  • Great event venue, been for reptile and tattoo conventions. Easy parking, not far from the M1; if coming by train needs a bus or taxi journey.
