A superb day from beginning to end. Megan & Lucy from the racecourse hospitality department were brilliant, great customer service & excellent communication skills. Martin Higgs, the tipster, is not to be missed, wonderful character with a good sense of humour, even gave us a few winners. Good food served my polite & helpful staff.

My favourite day out. I wait all year for this week to come. Brilliant atmosphere. I hope to other race meetings here which are always good. In the 30 years I have been going,I've never had a bad experience.

Great day with racing but major issues with hospitality especially with the vouchers you get on some of the race day packages. Complained to hospitality by email and received a quick response. Was told they will look into training staff better which I hope they do and is not just lip service and was also offered 2 comp tickets for... More

Historic Doncaster Racecourse venue of the oldest and final classic of each season The St. Leger . Always competitive and often of the highest grade particularly during Septembers Leger meeting and if not certainly a higher class than most tracks can offer. I can only recommend to anybody who hasn't been to go racing on Town Moor. As at most... More

We recently visited the course and ate inthe mallard restaurant. The day was really good and the food was a buffet was nice. The staff were ok but they kept getting our drinks order wrong and this made the day not as good as it could have been.

Blown away by how good this was. We paid for a premium ticket and parked in car park A. 1 minute walk. Wonderful views from our suite. Needed a bit more seating. And we ate downstairs, unaware sandwiches where on sale. Still had a great day out. And will return. Shame that there wasn't a poppy seller to be seen!

Saturday 5th November, Doncaster Race Course, Grand Slam, November Handicap. First time to an event of this nature. Very good day. The place was bustling with people of the last event of the season. Drinks and Food plentiful. Brave people walking around in the cold in day event clothes, when it was freezing. Must do event!
