Fab race course; with bars and food options at the grill or pay more for the banquet. Quite quiet as we went late and when it was very cold but a good event all the same

This was my first visit back since the upgrade and installation of the new all weather track. Great facilities which I am sure will be enjoyed by many and I look forward to my first race meeting under floodlights. Well done on the buffet lunch which was excellent and the staff were brilliant where nothing was a trouble ... And... More

had a great time here last week- lovely helpful staff, beautiful views, fabulous course. drinks are a bit pricey, even for the races, and we didn't eat, but all in all, a great day out. handy tip: there's a free shuttle bus from Regent centre about an hour from the first race

This was my first visit and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Ten work colleagues had a great time at a lovely little course. A few winners meant we left with more than we arrived, so that made it even better. The staff are really helpful and friendly and it was easy to get drinks, food etc. Will definitely go again.

In the right weather the races is excellent. On the big days its packed with great atmosphere. Could do with more variety on food, but people bring picnics so can't cater for everyone.

I did expect a glass of wine at least for the price paid but this was not the case ..so overall... More
