The day at the races was brilliant, we all thoroughly enjoyed the day. Prices of drinks average for this kind of event. The one thing that let the day down was they had rudimental playing live on the stage. I’ve seen rudimental before and they...More

Sophie We are glad that you enjoyed your day at Newbury. Unfortunately as you have mentioned there were some technical difficulties during the Rudimental concert resulting in the DJ set finishing earlier than expected. Those technical issues were outside of the direct control of both...More

Normal prices for the area 5 to 6 pounds for a pint of beer 6 or 7 pounds for a glass of wine. Does depend on your preferences if you have expensive tastes the choice is yours! The bar or the champagne lounge!!!
