Sadly, York Races attracts too many people who just come to York who only just want to get very drunk. This is not what people in York want when the Racecourse send everyone back into the city centre which turns into a war zone.

We travelled for 7 long hours to enjoy the excellent service of the Parade Ring Restaurant. Warm and welcoming with professionalism seldom seen at racecourses,the facility looks onto the immaculately tended Parade Ring. A great pleasure to visit Would that winners were more plentiful

Be aware that Ebor day will be very busy with lots of coach parties there for the drinking and not the racing, this spoils the day for keen race goers as the crowd get drunk and tempers become frayed.
