  • Wouldn't waste your time, just bet from home on an app, it's the same experience and you'd get better odds anyway.  more »
  • I have been to the Nottingham grey hound stadium a number of times for occasions etc, I go purely for the environment and for that reason only. The food is okay if your easily pleased, lacks flavour if you ask me, as for the old women who first greets you as you walk in the restaurant seems very welcoming however i and a couple of others have noticed that she isn't very nice to the waiting staff at all! Every time I have been I have witnessed this! The service that the restaurant provides is some what good however between each course me and my family felt rushed as if they was trying to get rid of us before the night finished, other than the Above it's a good social event.
  • From Kath in the downstairs bar to front of house to the TOTE ladies they are all lovely ladies who are all up for a laugh, always pleasant and polite and they chose to speak to you which nowadays seems to be too much trouble. The bar staff were great too, nothing was too much trouble. The food was very good and plentiful. The waiting staff were pleasant and polite. From the moment you arrive to when you leave there is no need to leave your table. So great work to the staff especially the er shall I say the ones in their golden years to the bar staff so from me many thanks for a great night out.
  • A good night of entertainment which is very reasonably priced. Good selection of food and drinks available. However, very disappointing that smoking is permitted in most areas making the experience less enjoyable for non- smokers. Hope that this changes so that we can visit again some time soon.
  • Great night out staff great Food reasonable priced
  • It was OK .. not good for stage night as you get told off soon as you walk thought the gate .. they enter you in for best fancy dress. Then tell you to take it off in the venue. ..
