June 2019 visit
Jun 2020
I was here mainly to watch Jess Glynne.
There was a big car park. There was a few places to place a bet, and helpful staff at the betting counter.
There was a few places for you to eat, and a confectionery stall for any snacks you may want. Plenty of toilets, but always queues.
The racing was good, and the rain held off until Jess Glynn came on stage, and everybody put their brollies up, so you couldn't really see anything. Overall a good experience. I would recommend.

Great Day Out
Jan 2020 • Friends
Joined some friends and drive from Darlington to the races on Saturday 18th January. 2 hours to get there which is pretty good, easy parking and straight in. Wasn’t too busy although getting near to the horses in apt he beautiful paddock was a bit difficult. Plenty of space and as mentioned not too busy so good views of the races from the grandstand enclosure.
4 winners out of 7 helped the day but win or lose this is a very nice racecourse.

Great compact racecourse
Jan 2020
Visited for the Peter Marsh stakes, paid for the County enclosure to ensure if the weather was poor we'd have somewhere to keep warm. As it was a sunny day we spent most of the time outside. Catered for gluten free, great parade ring and stands with seats opposite the finishing post. Fab day out.

The last fling
Dec 2019 • Friends
Had a great day here for the last fling race meet.

We paid for the park restaurant package, this included a 3 course meal race card and priority parking. The restaurant has a private balcony overlooking the track, only downside to this is it is a magnet for smokers so can be off putting while watching the races and when the door to inside opens. Overall the package is good value for money. You can bet on the tote from your table or at the counter in the restaurant.
Food was nice but only one choice on the meeting we attended.

The racecourse is very well signed so its easy to get around. I would say that the overall appearance is dated though.

Will return and recommend!

Christmas party night... don’t bother!!
Dec 2019 • Friends
Attended the Christmas party night on Friday 20th December, as we do every year. What a disappointment... staff where rude and unprofessional, the “professional photographer” was arrogant, unprofessional and very rude.
Ordered a bottle of wine from the bar to be told they didn’t have it and only had 1 red wine available, take the wine list over and explain we wanted this one. Told the cellar was far away... explained we was happy to wait, and oh did we wait, for over 30minutes!! We had finished the starter and the main before the bottle even arrived.
Food not much better. Soup was cold had to send it back and no veg on the main.
Drinks are extreamly expensive, and Gin drinkers be aware you drink out of tumblers, no gin glasses!! Tonic / mixers were warm nothing was in the fridges.
Most definitely won’t be giving them our custom again such a poor night.
Have given direct feedback through the events organiser but feel people need to be aware before attending these nights in future. Don’t bother!!

Great Day Out
Nov 2019
Fantastic racecourse and day out. Very easy to get to, just off the M6, and park up at.
Plenty of bars and bookies, there were queues but that's to be expected on a busy event day. My wife has mobility issues and we didn't really come across any issues, although no lift in the Grandstand if you want to get up to the 2nd floor seating so could be for others.
