Well if you are looking for a review of fine food - this isn't it. However if you want great chips you've got to call into the on course fish & chip shop. Lovely and brown and cooked in dripping - the way chips should be. Enjoy.

Whilst I love a day at the races I try to steer clear of the really busy days at courses as I like to take a good look around before and in between the racing. Also I enjoy seeing and trying the various facilities on offer without mad crowds. These reasons have resulted in a group of 8 visiting Ripon... More

First visit to ripon races but will not be the last one. Great little racecourse with ample parking and a great atmosphere. Getting served at the bar was a lot easier than at other courses. A few winners always helps and so does good weather.

Great course, especially when the sun is shining, highly recommended. People make a special effort when it's a big meet, ladies in all their splendour in the hats and big hair dos.

Had a great day at this beautiful race course. Something for everyone there - bars, food stalls, and even an old fashioned sweet shop! Also good because everything is spaced out so although here were thousands of people there, it didn't feel like it!
