Our first ever race day and staff could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for Trish in the restaurant. Alex took our booking and helped us make good choices for the day.

First visit to Suthwell on New Years Day and I know it won't be our last. The racing was excellent and the racecourse was small but everything was in easy reach. Hospitality and restaurant looked good too. Will be trying that out in the bear future. Fully recommended.

We went in the Seasons Restaurant and from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the service was superb. Tracia Drabble was outstanding in the... More

The racecourse is in a lovely setting and never seems to be too crowded. Facilities have improved over the years. Good food and drink is available such as hot pork cobs and fish and chips. In fact I would say the fish and chips, though a bit pricey, are the best in Nottinghamshire. And I won some money in the... More

Some times during the year this a big market for antiques - the fielddog fair. It is well suited for this with spacious area both outside and inside . Easy parking.
