The Epperstone package £125/head good at lunchtime but evening races not so good. Dinner rushed and poor quality. View of racecourse great and access to the paddock good etc. Great way to spend an evening.

Very good racing facility owned by East Lothian Council. Also home of one of the world's oldest sporting events- the Silver Arrow which is a contest for the Royal Company of Archers. The pavilions are good venues for events.
