  • Had a fantastic night here on Friday for the Weston Park Cancer Hospital fundraiser. Great location, great racing and we kept dry in the grandstand. Only negative was the price of the drinks!
  • Even when very busy you can buy a beer and place a bet without a problem. Better tannoy system needed for the race commentary.
  • Great for a fun day out, dont go when the bands are on though as it is too busy. Any other race day it is great for all the family. Good food and plenty to do. You can park roadside near the racetrack for free so dont bother paying.
  • Brilliant night. Food very average but great atmosphere friendly staff!
  • Been here numerous times and highly enjoyed it. However on the latest visit we discovered that Ladbrooks has now closed due to the fall out, leaving only Tote and the independent bookies
