Tried restaurant for the first time. Nice viewing balcony could see the whole course. Tables well spaced, did not feel that we were sitting on top of our neighbours. Would recommend.

Fabulous food: pumpkin and tomato soup starter( brilliantly seasoned), chicken main and a cracking pudding. The staff were great and well managed. I was driving and the coffee kept coming!! Would definitely attend another function if it was like this.

I’ve been many times and heartily recommend a trip. Both enclosures are great even if you don’t go into the premier enclosure the grandstand is fine. Excellent choice of food from fancy restaurants to pies and fish and chips. Very good disabled facilities.

Easy to find, really good free parking facilities and entry was straightforward, if a little expensive compared to other courses we've visited. The course itself is great, easy to navigate around and plenty of facilities. Very happy punters!

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!!!
