    Fantastic Night
    Visited in February for a birthday celebration what a brilliant night. Food was great - only got from snack bar but will definitely come in future for a meal. Service at bar quick & friendly People taking bets so understanding of novice guests, explained how the betting worked (reverse forecast who knew??) Will 100% visit again

    We went to the Dogs
    Overall the experience was exciting. The staff were really pleasant and helpful. It would have been 5 star, but downside having to go outside to reach the food hall. On a cold night food was tepid by the time we got back to our seats.
    Thank you for your feedback. Our snack bar is located in our downstairs bar, which is all undercover when traveling from the upstairs bar. We hope to see you again soon!

    Excellent night out celebrating my Dad's 70th birthday. Had a VIP room with 17 of us in there, plenty of room, loved having the balcony and food/service really exceptional. The very helpful Jamie-Leigh was great and a credit to the staff team at Owlerton.

    Great night out with friends
    Good laugh. Good food. Bargain price. Highly recommend the six pack offer: entry, program, chicken and chips, a beer or wine or soft drink and a couple of bets. 👍👍

    Always a good night at the dogs, however
    The 6 pack deal is a good deal, however who installed the new betting/racing screens?? Absolute rubbish. We were in the downstairs bar below the panorama room and you had screens that were showing the betting but not the races and others not showing the betting but showing the races, totally nuts! Too interested in putting loads of advertising on the screens. And when you did see the race on the screen the quality was rubbish, blurred, sticking, commentary not matching actual race, basically not fit for purpose. It really needs sorting and I wasn't the only person commenting. Shame because it is always a good night at the dogs but this certainly spoilt the experince on Friday night
    We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your recent visit. All of our TV's have been upgraded for better quality and our new system enables racing around the country to be seen from our track. If you would like us to look into this further for you please email enquiries@owlertonstadium.co.uk with full details.

    Fun Evening Out
    Booked a basic package which came with a free drink and meal combo. Picked up the tkts when arrived at the track with no issues. Never really bet on dogs before so the tote staff were very helpful and informative about how it works. The viewing area is great and the atmosphere was good. I had small bets on every race that night and was £30 better off come the end of the night. All in all a very good alternative to a pub crawl.
    Wow what a great review! Thank you very much! See you again soon!

    A fun night out
    This is a great evening out. We booked a meal in the restaurant which was amazing. All 3 courses were delicious, especially the steak and belly pork. We pre ordered, there was plenty of choice on the menu for everyone. The table was right by the window with a great view of the track. Excellent service by the wait staff, and by the tip runner who comes to the table to place your bet for each race (cash for this bit). You can watch the races at your table or go outside whenever you want to be even closer to the action. Fantastic atmosphere inside and out as everyone excitedly watches to see if their bet is a winner! There was a mixture of work do’s, hen do’s, birthday parties, friends and couples. A night out for any occasion.
    Wow what a great review! We’re so glad you enjoyed it! We will pass on your brilliant comments! See you again soon!

    Fantastic!!
    What a great experience we came as a party of 18. Was well organized staff was friendly and helpful. The chicken in a basket meal was way more then people expected. We all enjoyed a nights racing and would highly recommend.

A great day out for the family. We had a 3 course meal in the panarama restaurant today. We pre ordered and it was £16.00 per person. The food was great and so was the service with drinks and bets angel looked after our bets and was very helpful.
I like that you could have a breather and a chat between the courses didn’t feel rushed. It’s great to go down the track and see that dogs. We had a lovely afternoon and will 100% come back 👍🏼

So, they've now brought a rule in to book a table or you're literally left standing all night! Tables booked for regulars without any prior knowledge!

Another enjoyable evening at Owlerton Stadium. However our visit on this occasion was marred by a chicken in a basket meal which was served lukewarm. I’m hoping this was a one-off and that the meal on our next visit will be served at the correct temperature.

Our family of 12 Adults and 6 Children under the age of 4 visited the Greyhound Stadium for a fun filled afternoon between Christmas and the new year. We booked a private executive box It was a lunchtime meeting and we ordered the Christmas Lunch for our main meal, the other option being Steak and Ale pie - with hindsight 3 days after Christmas another Turkey dinner was a mistake but we had visited the Stadium in August and had the Steak Pie then (which was delicious) so we chose the Turkey - it was too soon, and because the meeting started at 10.30 am and we all arrived by 11am it was a little too soon to be having a large lunch - but as I say hindsight is a wonderful thing - we still enjoyed what we had but there was an awful lot left - to take home. So next time we'll choose the pie unless there is another addition next time.
That being said we had a smashing time and the Executive Boxes really are a treat if you want a private party - the service is excellent and the comfort of the boxes and viewing platform to watch the racing is a fabulous addition to the Stadium, the children loved cheering on the Dogs.
I've no doubt we will be back again - thank you for a brilliant afternoon.

We booked to go for our works Christmas outing and had a fantastic night. The food was lovely and the people taking the bets were so helpful for those who hadn’t a clue.
The only reason for the missing star is I had rang a few times before attending as I needed further info regarding food allergies and wanted to upgrade as it wouldn’t let me online and no one returned my calls.
Overall a great night was had by all.
