  • Just an OK night out but I'm not a big being man. May enjoy more than me. Facilities are quite dated.
  • Too many races now it's a all weather course all for tv now not bothered if ppl turn up
  • Nice place to watch the horses, plenty to eat and drink and lots of bookmakers too. You might even come out richer
  • Nice venue for charity events. Sometimes tricky getting there and away after a few drinks.
  • A great day out - drinks were a little expensive though.
