A great day out

Family day. Had a go at betting. Quite successfully. Nice restaurant and bar. Fairground for the younger members. A good day out.

The course is no better than OK But it is a better venue than it might otherwise be because it has the Wiining Post bar at the top of the Premier Enclosure stand. It is a pleasant cosy bar serving Steaming Billy bittet for £4 a pint. I do not know of a racecourse with a facility to match this.

A day at the races is always a great day and this was certainly the case today. Pleasant staff on the gate to welcome you in and a good competitive days racing to keep you warm on a cold winters day. Add to this a nice little snug at the back of the stand serving good beer with a smile... More

What a fabulous atmosphere it was at the races today. This is such a well run course. I had lunch in the restaurant with my friends. The food was great, well presented. I particularly like the beef, cooked to perfection.

Having been going to Leicester races for many years the latest manager has made a massive difference here.The old owners & trainers bar is open and welcoming(closed most of the time under previous management) plus the food offering is very acceptable considering it is a catering company as oppose to an in house operation.Well done to all concerned.My friends and...

I have visited the racecourse for horse racing which was exciting and fun. I also attended for a works Christmas party and had a fab time. It also hosts gigs and concerts like 80s stars and ladies days. I saw Belinda Carlisle and Heaven 17 there! How exciting is that??

I went to a wedding reception here and it was awful. The beef was so stringy that I couldn't cut it. The prawn starter was a joke.
